Reports suggest the guru will take to the Pyramid Stage on the morning of Sunday June 28
The Dalai Lama is rumoured to be talking at this summer’s Glastonbury Festival.
An appearance by the Buddhist guru has been revealed by the Dalai Lama Centre For Compassion Oxford, who wrote that His Holiness Tenzin Gyatso will appear on Sunday morning (June 28) on the Pyramid Stage, a slot previously taken by The English National Ballet. However, representatives for Glastonbury have not confirmed the appearance. The full line-up will be announced this spring.
So far the only confirmed act for the event, which will take place on Worthy Farm from June 24-28, is Lionel Richie who will perform in the iconic Sunday afternoon slot. Richie will perform on the final day of the event, following Dolly Parton who drew one of the biggest Glastonbury audiences of all time when she appeared in the same slot at last year’s festival. Other vintage artists who have played the same slot over the years include Kenny Rogers, Neil Diamond, Brian Wilson and Paul Simon.
“I’m really excited to play Glastonbury… as it’s one of the most iconic festivals in the world,” said Richie. “It has a phenomenal history and the alumni of artists who have previously played is incredible so I’m honoured to be joining that club. It will be a really special moment for me and I can’t wait to share it with everyone.”
Last year NME.COM users voted for Oasis as the band they would most like to see headline Glastonbury 2015. Bookies current favourites to headline the event include Foo Fighters and AC/DC.
