According to reggae legend Jimmy Cliff's website he's playing Glastonbury Festival on Friday 27th June.

Jimmy Cliff, whose hits include 'Sittin' in Limbo', 'You Can Get It If You Really Want', 'Wonderful World, Beautiful People' and 'Many Rivers to Cross' last played Glastonbury Festival in 2003, entertaining a crowd in the sizzling sun. eFestivals is hoping for similar weather this year.

Other acts who have self confirmed for 2008 so far include: Joan Armatrading who confirmed her attendance in her website newsletter and Solomon Burke who, like Jimmy Cliff, has confirmed on his website he was playing. Another act rumoured to be playing according to yesterday's The Times is Leonard Cohen, who has not played live for 15 years, who they rumour will be the headliner on the Sunday. If all this lot all turn out to be true, then you have to wonder will it bring the 'kids' in?
