Another act has revealed they will play Glastonbury 2019.

According to NME, US singer and rapper Lizzo has confirmed she will be at the Somerset Festival, which takes place from 26-30 June this year.

Asked by the outlet what her plans were for 2019, the Juice star divulged: "“I just have a shit tonne of shows and festivals. I’m coming back to London and Manchester. I’m doing Lovebox Festival and Glastonbury but I don’t think that’s announced so, whatever – you just got the scoop, bitch.”

Speaking to the BBC about the possibility of playing the festival again in 2018, frontman Robert Smith said: "Yeah, maybe. We haven't had a happy history with Glastonbury over the years."Although we've headlined three times, we've never been on the best of terms."I don't know if they forgive and forget. There are enough other festivals for us to play."
