Dolly Parton on the red carpet

Dolly Parton has been confirmed for the Sunday of this year's Glastonbury Festival.

The 9 To 5 singer announced the news on Twitter but it has not been revealed which stage she will be playing or when.

Emily Eavis said: "We are delighted to say that Dolly is coming to Glastonbury... It really doesn't get much better than this!"

Rumours that she would be on the bill began gaining traction at the end of last year, with The Sun claiming she would make an appearance in the Sunday afternoon "legends" slot - in which Kenny Rogers performed in 2013.

"It didn't take any convincing - she's always wanted to play Glastonbury," a source said at the time.

Arcade Fire have already been confirmed as the Friday Night headliners.

Meanwhile, it looks like Blondie may also be performing at the event.

"We just heard today – we’re going to be doing Glastonbury," Debbie Harry told Metro at last night's NME Awards.

Blondie picked up the Godlike Genius Award at the ceremony at O2 Academy Brixton.
