Corinne Bailey Rae is the latest act added to the 21st annual Glastonbury Extravaganza in the ancient Glastonbury Abbey's grounds, which takes place on Saturday 5th August 2017.
She joins Beach Boys co-founder Brian Wilson who will be playing The Beach Boys’ seminal album, Pet Sounds in full at the event on August 5, with a band that includes his former bandmates Al Jardine and Blondie Chapman. Wilson will also treat the Abbey crowd to greatest hits and rare cuts from their vast back catalogue. Also playing at the Extravaganza will be brass band the Black Dyke Band, with a firework display to round off the night.
Michael Eavis said: "Corinne first performed at the Abbey just a year after she released her solo debut album and as soon as I first heard her music, I knew she was going somewhere. She will be competing with some of the best musicians in the world on the night, and I have no doubt she will hold her own. The line-up this year is so good for our 21st birthday and I’m really looking forward to the show."
