Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has hailed Dolly Parton‘s appearance at the event as a success, claiming that she brought the biggest audience the festival has ever seen.
Parton performed at Worthy Farm on Sunday (June 29) and played a set filled with hits, including ‘Jolene’ and ‘9 To 5’ as well as a specially written rap about the muddy conditions.
“Oh, Dolly was the biggest crowd I’ve ever seen here,” Eavis said in a Q+A on the official Glastonbury website. “She is just a truly amazing live performer.
“Her voice was incredible. And she wrote that song about mud in the morning before the show! I don’t think you can beat that performance as a perfect moment here at Glastonbury.”
However, Eavis did not comment on speculation that Parton mimed during her set; a claim which has subsequently been denied by the singer.
