American R&B singer-songwriter Beyonce has told Sky News here that she would like to follow in her husband's footsteps and appear at next year's Glastonbury Festival which runs for five full days from Wednesday 24th until Sunday 28th June 2009 at Worthy Farm, Somerset.

When asked during the interview if she would like to take to the stage next year, she replied, "It would be really amazing... I would love to do it."

Jay-Z (Pyramid Stage)
The singer and actor who watched her husband, Jay-Z, from the side of the Pyramid Stage, as he headlined this year's Festival said, "I thought it was brilliant. Jay had all the controversy - but he came out and he did good. I was there to experience the energy, it was like something I have never experienced before."

The 'Crazy in Love' singer, who found fame with Destiny's Child, reveals in the article that she thought Amy Winehouse's performance at the Festival was brilliant, but had been disappointed that this year's Festival did not have the traditional Glastonbury mud, saying "I had my wellies and I got my outfit organised but it didn't rain and I wanted the mud!"
