The Dalai Lama has confirmed he will make an appearance at Glastonbury Festival this weekend. The exiled Tibetan spiritual leader will speak on the subjects "compassion, non-violence and the oneness of humanity" on Sunday.

Emily Eavis, co-organiser of the festival and daughter of its founder Michael Eavis, said it was a special moment for the annual musical weekend.  

"We’re honoured to welcome the Dalai Lama to Glastonbury 2015," she said. "He will be talking in the Green Fields and exploring the farm this Sunday as part of his trip to the UK. What a special moment for the festival."
