Music lovers trekking down to Glastonbury festival this year will get a surprise treat in the form of a speech by Jeremy Corbyn.

The Labour leader could address more than 13,000 fans on the main stage on the final day of the festival, according to the Press Association.

Of course, it's unlikely he'll have to pay the £228 pound ticket price, or the circa £70 for a return coach ticket from London.

He may be able to road trip down with his pal, shadow chancellor John McDonnell, who is also anticipated to speak at the festivals Left Field stage, organised by Billy Bragg.

Billy Bragg said: "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."

But Glastonbury have yet to confirm which stage the politicians will appear on.
