Rolf Harris lined up for Glastonbury Festival

Rolf Harris is the first name to be revealed for Glastonbury Festival after he confirmed himself on BBC Radio 2.

The singer, artist and television presenter described his booking as 'wonderful' when he spoke to Dermot O'Leary on his Saturday radio show.

Harris said: "Well I'm doing Glastonbury again this coming year, in '09, which is wonderful."

The singer, who is famed for inventing the 'wobble board', last appeared at the festival in 2002. No date has been confirmed for his appearance next year.

Other names that look likely to perform at next year's event include Franz Ferdinand, The Ting Tings and The Travelling Band after they all played at the recent Pilton Equinox Party – a bash for Glastonbury locals put on by the Eavis'.
