Glastonbury’s Emily Eavis has announced Diana Ross will take to the Pyramid Stage when the festival returns in 2022. Set to play the coveted ‘Legends Slot’ on Sunday 26th June, Ross re-confirmed her attendance for next year, following the cancellation of her 2020 performance after the festival was forced to postpone due to the global Covid-19 outbreak.

Announced via Emily’s Twitter and Instagram account, the festival curator, and daughter of Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis, said “I’m thrilled to be able to let you know that the magnificent @DianaRoss is coming to play at @glastonbury next summer. We were so excited to book such a legend for Glastonbury 2020 and are so happy that she’s the first to re-confirm for next year.”

Often seen as Glastonbury’s ‘unofficial fourth headliner’, previous Sunday afternoon performers have included the likes of Kylie Minogue, Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie, Tony Bennett and Dame Shirley Bassey. Glastonbury 2022 will return to its Worthy Farm home on 24-26 June.
