Mika for Glastonbury 2007

Mika has confirmed he will play the Glastonbury Festival this summer. Currently at Number One in the UK singles chart with debut Grace Kelly, Mika admits he hopes the show will be 'one of the highlights of my summer.'

He said: “I am playing Glastonbury this year. I think I will be doing a few little things everywhere but I know that I’ll be playing one proper gig as well.

“I’ve always wanted to go so that’s going to be one of the highlights of my summer. I’m also doing Coachella in the States which is supposed to be amazing and Mount Fuji, maybe.

“I’m going from never really going to festivals to kind of doing the whole round in one summer.”

Glastonbury Festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset from Friday 22nd to Sunday 24th June (with the gates opening on the Wednesday).

The new ticket registration facility opened today, and runs until 28 February. You will need to register first if you wish to buy a ticket this year. Click here for details.
