Rumours for Glastonbury Festival 2019 are coming in thick and fast and Kylie Minogue is the latest big name to join the list.

After canceling a performance 14 years ago due to a breast cancer diagnosis, the Aussie pop star looks set to take the prestigious legends slot on the Pyramid Stage.

A inside source allegedly contacted The Sun newspaper to confirmed the gig:

“Kylie had to pull out of Glastonbury in 2005 just a month before she was due to appear so this performance will be a very emotional and poignant moment for her.

“She jumped at the opportunity to appear next year and it is the perfect way to celebrate her career.

Roy Orbison could perform at Glastonbury Festival 2019 as hologram

Roy Orbison could make an appearance at Glastonbury Festival 2019 – as a hologram.

Orbison passed away in 1988 after suffering a heart attack, but is set to tour the UK as a hologram starting in April.

His son admitted that taking the show to Glastonbury would be “the ultimate”.

“This show would be perfect for that audience,” he said.

“The technology is moving so fast. At first we were told we could only play theatres, so we could control the interplay of the light.

“But now the Orbison hologram can play an outdoor festival, even in daylight, and it will still look good.”

Glastonbury Festival takes a break in 2018 to allow the farm land to recover and returns on 26 – 30 June 2019.

So far there are no confirmed acts.

Emily Eavis has revealed that bookings are already being made for Glastonbury Festival 2019.

Speaking recently, the daughter of original founder Michael Eavis said:

“My husband Nick, he does most of the booking now, but me and my dad will still wade in with strong feelings about someone or another, but most of the time Nick will get a lot of the bookings done.

“There is a lot of juggling to do, because there are hundreds of stages, thousands of acts, so you have to watch for all the clashes, and you have to kind of get the balance right.

“We do it all year, even now we are booking for 2019, so we’ve had some agents on the phone this week, and in fact even before this year’s festival, they were asking to book some of the bigger slots for the next festival.

Glastonbury takes its traditional fallow year next year to allow the land at Worthy Farm to recover. It will return in full force in the summer of 2019.
