The singer is confirmed for main stage, just before Jay-Z

Amy Winehouse has been confirmed to play this year’s Glastonbury Festival by the events’ organisers today (May 21).

Winehouse will perform on the Pyramid Stage, just prior to Jay-Z who headlines the festival on the Saturday night (June 28).

Emily Eavis who works with her father Michael organising the renowned June festival said to BBC news “I have total faith, I think she’ll come and deliver.”

Eavis added: “This is one of the biggest sets of the summer, supporting the most anticipated artist at Glastonbury in the past 38 years.”

Eavis also backed Winehouse over recent allegations in the media, saying, “It’s her personal life and no-one really knows the extent of what she’s up to and I don’t think it should be public knowledge. We all know she’s a brilliant performer and I think that’s what we should be focussing on.”

Other performers at this year’s Glastonbury which takes place from June 27-29 includes Kings Of Leon, The Verve, Leonard Cohen and Massive Attack.
