Jeremy Corbyn will perform at this year's Glastonbury music festival.
The leader of the UK Labour Party will deliver a talk on the Left Field stage.
It's expected that he will focus his speech on the Campaign for Nuclear Disarmament, as he continues the left-leaning tradition of the festival.
Corbyn was invited to Worthy Farm by political, singer-songwriter Billy Bragg.
"The election of Jeremy Corbyn as Labour leader has galvanised a new generation of activists, and this year at Left Field we aim to give them a platform to discuss issues around social justice, the economy, gender and the possibilities for genuine change under a Corbyn government," said Bragg in a statement on the festival's website.
A spokesperson for Corbyn told The Mirror: "Jeremy has long been a fan of Glastonbury, and is looking forward to attending as a guest of the CND and the festival organisers."
