Paloma Faith has been revealed as the headliner for festival organiser and farmer Michael Eavis's other little shindig, the 22nd annual Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza in the ancient Glastonbury Abbey's grounds, which takes place on Saturday 4th August 2018.
Michael Eavis said: "What makes the Extravaganza so special is the all-round experience – where else would you have a backdrop as stunning or as historic as the ruins of Glastonbury Abbey? It really is a wonderful event for all those who come as well as being fabulous for the town, residents and local businesses. With the weather currently so cold – isn’t it good to be looking forward to the summer and a brilliant performer who will give one of the finest shows we could wish for?"
Paloma Faith - pictured above at her 2015 visit to Worthy Farm - also sent a message, saying "Glastonbury has a special place in my heart, I was blown away by the crowd and the atmosphere when I performed on the Pyramid Stage at the Festival. I’m really looking forward to seeing the town again and being at the Abbey. The Extravaganza will be an extraordinary experience, particularly given it’s in such a historic setting. I am sure it will be a night to remember!"
