Following previous rumours via the mainstream press earlier in the summer, Kylie Minogue has reportedly been confirmed to take the helm for the ‘Legends’ slot at 2019’s Glastonbury Festival.
According to sources at The Sun, Minogue’s appearance for the coveted tea-time slot was signed and agreed with organisers at the start of the year. If confirmed, Kylie will make her Pyramid Stage solo debut in the afternoon of Sunday 30th June.
The singer’s appearance will mark only the second Worthy Farm outing for the star, having previously appeared onstage with The Scissor Sisters in 2010. Minogue had previously been scheduled to headline Glastonbury back in 2005 but had to cancel her appearance following her cancer diagnosis.
Often seen as Glasto’s ‘unofficial fourth headliner’, previous Sunday afternoon performers have included the likes of Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Tony Bennett and Dame Shirley Bassey. Bee Gee Barry Gibb was the last artist to play the slot prior to Glastonbury’s hiatus in summer 2018.
Glastonbury 2019 runs from 26-30th June.
