Is Kylie playing Glastonbury?
On December 19, 2018 Kylie revealed she’s playing Glastonbury in the ‘legends’ slot.
The pop princess was scheduled to hit the stage at the music extravaganza 14 years ago but was forced to pull out a month before when she discovered that she had breast cancer.
However, more than a decade on, the Spinning Around hitmaker will finally get her chance to perform at the five-day festival on the Pyramid stage at Worthy Farm, near Pilton, Somerset, England, on June 30.
She wrote on Instagram: “I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be playing the ‘Legend slot’ on Sunday 30th June at @glastofest 2019. It will be 14 years since I was originally meant to appear there and so much has happened up to now.
“I can’t wait to see you all there to share the special show.”
