Festival organiser Emily Eavis revealed that Dolly Parton had been confirmed, whilst Blondie revealed their appearance during the NME Awards that took place last week.
Speaking to Metro on the red carpet, Debbie Harry said: “We just heard today – we’re going to be doing Glastonbury.” They join headliners Arcade Fire, Lily Allen, Warpaint and Staton Warriors on the list of artists due to perform at this year’s festival, which takes place between June 25-29.
Tweeting about her upcoming appearance at Glastonbury, Parton said she will perform on June 29, the Sunday of the festival. Meanwhile, Emily Eavis said that she “couldn’t be happier” with the booking.
Tickets for this year’s festival went on sale last October and sold out in record time. It took just 1 hour and 27 minutes for all 120,000 tickets to be snapped up. Over 1 million people have already registered for tickets for the 2015 event.
