Glastonbury have revealed Diana Ross will appear on the Pyramid Stage on the Sunday of the festival’s 50th anniversary next summer.
Organiser Emily Eavis said: “I am delighted to say that one of the all-time greats, the wonderful Diana Ross, is coming to Glastonbury to play the Sunday legend slot on the Pyramid next year.”
Ms.Ross said on Twitter: “This is a dream come true”.
Diana is the first artist to be officially announced for Glastonbury 2020, though Michael Eavis has already confirmed Wolf Alice will be on the Glastonbury 2020 line-up.
Supergrass are rumoured to appear after reforming to play this year’s Pilton Party.
After Glastonbury 2020 tickets sold out in 34 minutes on Sunday, organisers have now opened a ballot with the chance to buy one of 50 pairs of tickets to the festival’s 50th anniversary next summer. These were held back from the main ticket sale allocation.
Anyone aged 18 or over and currently registered to buy tickets can enter the ballot unless they’ve been lucky enough to already have a ticket secured. Each entry can be submitted with a guest’s registration number attached, and you can nominate anyone registered (including under 18s) as your guest.
The ballot closes at 5pm on Thursday 31st October.
