Korean singer-songwriter Choi Go-Eun has confirmed that she will perform at Glastonbury in June.


The news was revealed by Go-Eun in a new interview with a Korean publication. She joins headliners Arcade Fire, Lily Allen and Staton Warriors on the list of artists due to perform at this year's festival, which takes place between June 25-29.

Speaking about her booking, Go-Eun told The Chosun Ilbo that she was invited to perform by line-up coordinator Malcolm Haynes at a wrap-up party for the Asia Pacific Music Meeting in October. "I was invited to perform there next year and I gladly accepted," she said.

Michael Eavis previously said that Fleetwood Mac will not be playing Glastonbury Festival next year.

The band were rumoured to be performing at the festival, but the event's founder has denied that they will be playing Worthy Farm in 2014. Eavis said that he hopes to get the classic rock band to play the following year. "We're hoping to get them for 2015, but not next year," he commented.

In October, bookmakers stopped taking bets on Fleetwood Mac headlining Glastonbury Festival in 2014. Ladbrokes were previously offering odds of 1/4 on seeing the band play the Pyramid Stage in June next year. However, following an increased period of speculation after Fleetwood Mac's UK tour dates, the betting was suspended.

Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time, after going on sale on October 6. 120,000 tickets were snapped up in 1 hour and 27 minutes, beating last year's record of one hour and 40 minutes. Eavis revealed that over one million people had registered for tickets for next year's event.
