Country legend Dolly Parton to play Britain's Glastonbury Festival in June

LONDON - Britain's leading rock festival is going a little bit country.

Organizers said Thursday that Dolly Parton will play the Glastonbury Festival on June 29.

Festival programmer Emily Eavis told the BBC that "it's been something we've been wanting to happen for a long time. And she finally said yes."

Parton, whose hits include "9 to 5" and "Jolene," also tweeted the news.

Held on the Eavis family farm in southwest England, Glastonbury is Britain's most prestigious summer music festival. About 120,000 tickets for the June 25-29 event sold out before any acts were announced.

This year's lineup is still largely a secret, although members of Arcade Fire have announced the band will perform.

Last year's festival included performances from the Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons, Arctic Monkeys and Kenny Rogers.
