Janelle Monáe Confirmed for Glastonbury 2019

Janelle Monáe has been confirmed as the latest headliner to play Glastonbury Festival 2019.

The US singer will headline the festival's West Holts Stage, organiser Emily Eavis announced today. 

Her performance will follow up the success of her acclaimed 2018 album Dirty Computer, in what will will be her first appearance at the festival since 2011. 

Announcing the news, Emily Eavis told BBC Radio 6 Music that she's increadibly excited to have Monáe returning.

“When she last played in 2011 it was incredible, that show really was brilliant", she said. "Visually it was just incredible. You could have watched it with the sound off."

Monáe joins previously announced Pyramid Stage headliner Stormzy on the lineup, as well as pop star Kylie Minogue, who will play the celebrated "legend slot" on Sunday afternoon.
