Lana Del Rey is set to play the Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury.
The 34-year-old singer has been added to the star-studded line-up for this year's festival at Worthy Farm, with event organiser Emily Eavis revealing the news at the NME Awards 2020.
Emily shared: ''I'm very pleased to tell you that we have the most incredible Lana Del Rey. I believe it's her only UK festival, which is even better.
''She's nearly played a few times actually, and for one reason or another it hasn't happened, and she was one of our very first confirmations for this year.''
Emily is delighted that Lana is set to star at the event, hailing her most-recent album, 'Norman F***ing Rockwell!', as ''one of the best records'' of 2019.
Emily told NME: ''It's amazing, one of the best records of last year and for me a real coup getting her. She's playing the Pyramid on Friday, underneath our headliner.''
Emily has also spoken about Lana's Glastonbury appearance on social media.
She wrote on her Twitter account: ''Am very happy to tell you that the wonderful Lana Del Rey will he playing on the Pyramid stage this year.''
Meanwhile, Emily has admitted she is determined to achieve a gender balanced line-up at Glastonbury as soon as she can.
The festival organiser made the comments amid ongoing criticism over a lack of female or female-fronted acts at music events.
Speaking to BBC Radio 1, Emily shared: ''Our future has to be 50/50. It's a challenge. Everyone's finding it hard - but the acts are there.''
Ahead of their upcoming tour, and prior to the release of their long awaited album, Smoke Fairies played a great warm-up gig at Elsewhere in Margate.
