Diana Ross becomes the first confirmed artist for Glastonbury 2020, which is expected to be a more significant event than usual.


Glastonbury Festival is a long-running event that is expected to celebrate its 50th anniversary in 2020.

And in that fashion, the Festival plans to go more significant than they have in past events leading to this. With that in mind, the Festival revealed on Thursday via Twitter that Diana Ross will be performing.

In case you were wondering, Diana Ross is a legend with twenty-two studio albums under her musical belt.


As shared by CNN, the 75-year-old is set to headline the Glastonbury 2020 in the "Legends" slot - an event she's ecstatic about as she revealed via Twitter saying:

"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," the "If We Hold On Together."


The "Endless Love" singer is the first confirmed artist for the Festival, and she will be mounting the Pyramid Stage on Sunday, June 28.

That Sunday will be the final day of the five-day event in Somerset, England. According to Daily Mail, the Glastonbury act will be Diana's first time performing in the UK since her "I Love You" tour back in 2007.


The mother of five is just one of the many legends who has performed at Glastonbury Festivals. Paul Simon, Lionel Richie, Dolly Parton, and Kylie Minogue were top headliners during this year's edition.

CNN also adds that Kylie Minogue performed to a record-breaking audience as an average of 3.2 million people tuned in to watch the Australian's set.


Next year's Glastonbury will occur from 24 to June 28. And as BBC


, the event sold out in just 34 minutes last weekend. However, there will be a chance to purchase returned tickets in April 2020 as tickets cost as much as £265, with 175,000 people expected to attend.

Although the Festival's other headliners remain unknown, Sir Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac, and Taylor Swift are rumored as potential candidates as BBC News shares.

However, the report claims that the music group, Abba, has no interest in performing at the event.

During an interview with BBC Radio 2, group member Bjorn Ulvaeus replied, "oh, no. It's a straight, straight no," when asked if the quartet would ever consider reforming to play the legend slot.
