It has been confirmed that Lorde will play at the 2017 Glastonbury festival.

The 20-year-old Kiwi pop singer will perform alongside Ed Sheeran, Katy Perry, Chic, Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Barry Gibb.

Glastonbury is held over five days every year in England near Pilton, Somerset. It is a contemporary music festival with dance, comedy, theater, circus, cabaret, and other arts.
