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