Glastonbury Festival Wants You To Flash Mob To Dolly Parton
 

Dolly Parton will play Glastonbury festival in a couple of weeks. It's sure to be one of the most memorable billings of the weekend. The country singer, who's nearly 70, is touring her 42nd album 'Blue Smoke'. After writing 3,000 songs, receiving 46 Grammy nominations and becoming one of the most-loved singer-songwriters of the 21st century, playing the 'legend slot' on Sunday at Glastonbury festival is surely a fitting way for Parton to spend an afternoon. Perhaps it is the prestige of the billing that's led the festival to post an unprecedented accompanying video on its official YouTube channel to teach fans a routine for 'Jolene'. Fez, a 'Dolly Mob' choreographer, walks through the steps, intending festival-goers to 'dance with strangers'. "It’s simple, learn the moves in the video above and then be prepared to break out into dance whenever and wherever you hear it played at Glastonbury 2014," the team write on its website.

What do you think? Rhinestones and chaps at the ready?
