Diana Ross to Perform at Glastonbury 2020

16th October 2019 | Category: Concerts

Legendary American singer and actress Diana Ross has just become the first artist to be confirmed for the biggest UK Festival – Glastonbury.

She will be headlining the aptly-named “legends slot,” on the Sunday night of 2020 Glastonbury Festival. Miss Ross revealed on her social media that she is excited to be performing at this long-running festival. The 75-year-old singer said in her tweet:

“This is a dream come true. To all the fans across the world, this is my tribute to you. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.” 

Glastonbury’s co-organizer Emily Eavis then went on to confirm the big news by tweeting: “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.”

The upcoming Glastonbury concert marks the first time the Motown star will perform a show in the UK since 2008.

Other big names that graced the Legend’s slot stage at Michael Eavis’ Worthy Farm were Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and most recently Kylie Minogue, whose performance became the most-watched Glastonbury moment of all time.

Next year will be the festival’s 50th anniversary, and according to a notice posted to the event’s website the tickets sold out in just 34 minutes. However, fans will have two more chances to buy them, in an ongoing ballot.

Other headliners have not been announced yet, but according to some rumours, Taylor Swift, Fleetwood Mac and Sir Paul McCartney might be part of the Glastonbury’s lineup.

Ross needs no introduction, though her half-century of hits might be unfamiliar with the typical Glastonbury crowd.

Over her impressive career, Ross sold more than 100 million albums worldwide and enjoyed 18 Billboard Hot 100 No. 1 hits. She was inducted into the Rock Hall in 1988, as part of The Supremes. She is a 12-time Grammy nominee, and the recipient of the Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award in 2012.
