Wanna go out Dancing... in wellies?

Kylie Minogue is performing at Glastonbury 2019.

Fourteen years after she was first meant to play the Pyramid Stage in 2005 - but had to withdraw due to being diagnosed with breast cancer - the Australian pop legend has confirmed she will occupy the coveted Legends slot at Worthy Farm next year on June 30.

"I’m so thrilled to announce that I’ll be playing the ‘Legend slot’ on Sunday 30th June at Glastonbury 2019," Kylie beamed on social media. "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 this special show."

Kylie is the second act announced for the festival, alongside headliner Stormzy.

Kylie follows in the footsteps of Dolly Parton, Lionel Richie and Barry Gibb who have made the Sunday night slot a must-watch event when the festival is broadcast across the BBC. 

The Glastonbury performance is just one of many huge outdoor gigs that the Lifetime To Repair star has in the pipeline for 2019. Kylie will also play the likes of The Eden Project, and headline slots at London's Hampton Court Palace and Edinburgh Castle - venues fit for pop royalty.

2018 saw Kylie return to the top of the UK's Official Albums Chart for the first time since 2010 with her country-tinged album Golden. The album's first-week sales surpassed those of her previous three albums The Abbey Road Sessions, Kiss Me Once and Kylie Christmas.
