Kylie Minogue Has Been Confirmed For 'Legend' Slot At Glastonbury Festival

Kylie Minogue will perform during the Sunday afternoon 'legend' slot at Glastonbury Festival 2019.

The 'legends' slot has become somewhat of a phenomenon over the years and has seen the likes of legendary Bee Gee, Barry Gibb, Dame Shirley Bassey, Dolly Parton and Neil Diamond.

Kylie, 50, will play the coveted tea-time slot on 30 June aiming to lift people's spirits before the final push.

The pop star was originally meant to appear as a headliner at the infamous festival back in 2004 but was forced to pull out to have treatment for breast cancer.

She announced the news on Instagram saying: "I'm so thrilled to announce that I'll be playing the 'Legend slot' on Sunday 30th June at @glastofest 2019.

"It will be 14 years since I was originally meant to appear there and so much has happened up to now. I can't wait to see you all there to share this special show."

Usually, an established and well-loved artist who often comes from a genre different to the usual 'Glasto' line-up will play, often drawing the biggest audiences over the entire weekend.

But this announcement has received mixed emotions from fans and festival-goers.

One said: "Even the most stubbornly hopeful music lover must admit it's over, music is over."

Another added: "First Stormzy now Kylie? I'm a massive Glastonbury fan but this line up is woeful so far".

Someone else said: "We should be so lucky... lucky lucky lucky".

"Those saying she isn't a legend - who is and what defines them as a legend?" another chimed.

Another person unhappy with the news said: "Legend? Shows you how far society has been systematically dumbed down."

But it wasn't all doom and gloom - one fan exclaimed: "So glad you can now achieve something that your battle with cancer took away from you. You won then and we and @GlastoFest win now."

With another adding: "I AM SO SO proud of you! You deserve this slot. Alot has happened in 15 years but look back, reflect, and the time is right for you to own that stage!"
