Michael Eavis said: "I’m delighted Robert Plant and his Sensational Space Shifters has chosen to perform at the Abbey for our 18th year. We started in 1996 and only had one year off which was 2012.

"This night is a chance for those locally who can’t always get to the Festival in Pilton to enjoy something extra special in this wonderful town.

"I am sure he will appeal to all generations, as he is one of our all-time great Rock and Roll performers and fans of all ages will remember the Led Zeppelin classics."
