AMERICAN blues musician Seasick Steve has joined headliner Paloma Faith on the Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza line-up for Saturday, August 29. 

Seasick Steve - real name Steven Wold - made his UK breakthrough after appearing on Jools Holland's Hootenanny in 2006. 

The 71-year-old has since released several commercially successful albums, including I Started out with Nothin and I Still Got Most of It Left, and has made numerous appearances at Glastonbury Festival.

He said: “I live in the world of going out and rocking. We do our best, every night.

“If someone has taken the trouble to spend their money to come and see us play, then we owe them to deliver.

“We rock. That’s what we do.”

Paloma Faith, who released her fifth studio album Infinite Things in November 2020, was announced as the extravaganza's headliner in October

When Faith, 40, was confirmed as the headline act, Glastonbury Festival founder Michael Eavis said: “We’re so pleased to announce that the wonderful Paloma Faith will be headlining the Extravaganza this coming summer on the 6th of August.

“The evening will begin with the famous Black Dyke Brass Band.

“You may remember their appearance in 2017 which was totally remarkable!”

Black Dyke Band, who have won the European Brass Band Championships 13 times, are also on the Pyramid Stage line-up for Glastonbury 2022.

The extravaganza's traditional fireworks finale will bring the event to a close. 

Tickets and camping for the Glastonbury Abbey Extravaganza are available through the abbey's website
