Dolly Parton’s Glastonbury Set In 9 Awesome Photos


Eagerly awaited by one of the biggest crowds to hit the Pyramid stage all weekend, Dolly Parton took to the stage in a white rhinestone jumpsuit, kicking off her set with a lively ‘Baby I’m Burning’.


Dolly kept the crowd entertained in between songs with anecdotes about growing up in the Smoky Mountains, Tenessee, with an extended family she described as “randy hillbillies”.


The first big crowd sing-along came when Dolly broke into ‘Jolene’. She explained that the song was inspired by real events in her life, but, ever upbeat, she laughed that she would never have made so much money had she not been inspired to write it.



Not only was Dolly’s entire outfit encrusted with rhinestones, but all of her instruments as well – including a jewelled sax, with which she entertained the crowd with a brief rendition of the Benny Hill theme.
