Ms Ross’ performance will be during the Sunday teatime slot on the Pyramid Stage on 28 June at Glastonbury 2020.
Her return to the UK, and first live performance since 2018, will mark the festival’s 50th anniversary.
Diana Ross is considered to be one of the most successful entertainers and recording artists of all time, having more than 100 million records sold and 50 number one hits around the globe. She was presented with the Medal of Freedom Honour by President Barack Obama in 2016, and received The Grammy Lifetime Achievement Award from The National Academy of Recording Arts & Sciences in 2012.
Ms Ross stated: “To all my fans across the world, this is my tribute to you. Every concert feels like a private party, I can see your eyes and feel your hearts. I’m coming to Glastonbury, with love.”
Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis added: “I am delighted to say that one of the all-time greats, the wonderful Diana Ross, is coming to Glastonbury to play the Sunday legend slot on the Pyramid next year.”
