Shakira Announced For Glastonbury

She’ll play on the same day as Muse…

Shakira is the latest act confirmed to play Glastonbury Festival this summer.

The She Wolf will play the main ‘Pyramid’ stage on Saturday June 26 before Scissor Sisters and headliners Muse.
 
Organiser Emily Eavis was happy to bag the Colmbian pop princess, saying: “Shakira is not only an amazing pop star but also socially and politically forward thinking; she's working incredibly hard for good causes around the world.”
 
Last week the full Glastonbury line up was revealed with Stevie Wonder, U2, Dizzee Rascal, Hot Chip, Vampire Weekend, Mos Def, Florence and the Machine, Snoop Dogg and N-Dubz all confirmed.
 
A slot is still going between Shakira and Scissor Sisters on the Saturday with Kylie Minogue rumoured to be playing the event.
