Jeff Lynne and co. will play the popular "golden oldies" slot on Sunday 26 June.

Jeff Lynne's ELO have been confirmed for the Sunday teatime slot at Glastonbury 2016.

The Birmingham singer, songwriter and multi-instrumentalist and his Electric Light Orchestra will play the Somerset festival, which takes place on 22-26 June.

The Mr. Blue Sky band will play their slot at the Pyramid stage, which has played host to the likes of Lionel Ritchie in 2015 and Dolly Parton in 2014, which brought in the biggest crowds that year.  

Speaking of the announcement, festival organiser Emily Eavis said: "Yes! ELO are playing this year's Glastonbury Sunday teatime slot. Can't wait!"

The band previously featured in Radio X's rumoured Sunday legend slot rumours feature, after Ed Sheeran had correctly "heard" they were set to play.
