Taylor Swift’s schedule will be pretty packed next summer, since she’s embarking on another tour, and she recently announced one truly special date. She’ll be the Sunday night headliner at the iconic Glastonbury Festival next year.

The ten-time Grammy-winning singer said she’s “ecstatic” to be headlining Glastonbury on its 50th anniversary, and the festival’s producers seem to be equally excited. Organizer Emily Eavis said they’re thrilled to welcome Swift to Worthy Farm, and described her as “one of the biggest and best artists on the planet.”

The “Lover” singer won’t be the only amazing artist headlining this event. Paul McCartney will perform on Saturday night, and Diana Ross will take the “legends slot” on Sunday afternoon. Friday’s headliner is yet to be announced, but Eavis revealed it will be a male performer making his Glastonbury debut.

Taylor Swift’s Glastonbury performance will be a part of her upcoming concert and festival tour Lover Fest. When she first announced this tour, set to kick off on June 20th in Belgium, the singer said that she wants to perform her new album in a way that feels authentic, and go to some places she’s never visited before.
