Janelle Monáe has been announced as the first headliner for the West Holts Stage at 2019’s Glastonbury Festival.

Revealed by organiser Emily Eavis on Lauren Laverne’s BBC6 Music Breakfast Show, Monáe’s appearance will see her return to Worthy Farm for the first time since 2011, and aligns with the singer’s upcoming Dirty Computer UK tour which kicks off just after Glastonbury.

During her chat with Laverne, Emily also teased further new details for Glastonbury’s 2019 return, including news about Block9 and The Park – “The Park has got something new appearing next to it where the tipis were” she said, whilst also confirming various upgrades to Arcadia too.
