The Dalai Lama to appear at next year's Glastonbury Festival

The Dalai Lama will make an appearance at next summer's Glastonbury Festival.

79-year-old Tenzin Gyatso, who is the current head monk of Tibetan Buddism, will give a talk on the morning of the festival's final day next summer. 

He confirmed the news on his official website, writing: "Public Talk in Glastonbury, Somerset, England on June 28: His Holiness will give a talk at the Glastonbury Festival in the morning."

Next summer's festival has only seen a handful of artists confirmed, with crooner Lionel Richie easily the most high-profile, he will also play the event on the final day. None of the headliners have been confirmed as yet, but Foo Fighters, Coldplay and Elton John have each linked with a slot at the top of the bill on the Pyramid Stage. 

Organiser Michael Eavis has already ruled out both Queen and Fleetwood Mac from headlining the event. 

Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 24th to 28th next sumer.
