The Kinks' Ray Davies confirmed for this year's Glastonbury festival
The Kinks' Ray Davies has been confirmed to play this year's Glastonbury festival.

Set to play the "legends slot" on the Pyramid Stage, the singer-songwriter will perform at 5pm on the Sunday (June 27).

"Ray Davies with his friends and with a choir and all those Kinks songs are going to be absolutely unbelievable," Michael Eavis told eFestivals.co.uk. "Ray has got the 5 o'clock slot, the legend's slot. His songs are so original and unique, it's going to be great."

Taking place at Worthy Farm in Somerset between June 25-27, the final batch of Glastonbury tickets are set to go on sale on April 11, where U2, Muse and Stevie Wonder will headline the festival.
