Organisers have also dedicated their live album to the memory of the MP- a former Oxfam activist who campaigned tirelessly for refugees.
Oxfam Presents: Stand As One – Live at Glastonbury 2016 will be released to support the refugee crisis on 11 July 2016.
Jack Lundie from Oxfam told Radio X the tracklist was still "growing," adding: "This is really about creating an opportunity for people to contribute.
"The world of music can unite, and then music-lovers across the world can add their voices to some of the most powerful and engaging voices in the world".
