Kylie Minogue will perform the Sunday teatime “legend” slot at Glastonbury festival 2019.
The heritage act slot on the festival’s main Pyramid stage tends to draw the biggest crowd of the weekend, and has been filled in recent years by Barry Gibb, Lionel Richie and Dolly Parton. Festival organiser Emily Eavis said she was “delighted” with the booking, adding: “We cannot wait.”
It will be the first time Minogue has played a solo set at Glastonbury. She was due to headline the Pyramid stage in 2005 but had to cancel following a breast cancer diagnosis — Basement Jaxx replaced her, and fellow headliners Coldplay performed a cover of Minogue’s ‘Can’t Get You Out of My Head’ in tribute. She also made a guest appearance with Scissor Sisters in 2010 for a performance of their song ‘Any Which Way’.
The only other act to have been announced for the sold-out festival is Stormzy, who will headline the Pyramid stage on Friday night.
