GEORGE Ezra has confirmed that he will perform on Glastonbury Festival's John Peel Stage at 2pm this afternoon (Sunday, June 26).

The ‘Shotgun’ and ‘Green Green Grass’ singer shared the news on Twitter shortly after 11am, writing: “SURPRISE! Glastonbury, see you at 2pm on the John Peel Stage for a big old party.”

Fans have speculated that Ezra could be a ‘secret set’ performer after a sign that said ‘Gold Rush Kid’ - the name of latest studio album - was spotted at the festival site, with a picture of it shared on social media on June 18.

He is expected to draw a huge audience to the John Peel Stage, which has hosted the likes of Sigrid, Griff and Holly Humberstone, between 2pm and 3pm. 

Gold Rush Kid was released earlier this month and became his third UK number one album alongside Wanted on Voyage (2014) and Staying at Tamara's (2018).

Ezra, 29, has overcome a “nasty bout of laryngitis” to perform at the festival after undergoing a 48-hour vocal rest.

He was forced to cancel a scheduled gig at Denmark's Tinderbox Festival on Friday on doctor's orders after being diagnosed with the inflammation.

White Stripes singer Jack White has also been confirmed as a surprise performer this morning. 

He will perform at The Park Stage at 6pm after his appearance was teased in today's Glastonbury Free Press newspaper.
