Dolly Parton‘s 2014 keeps getting busier. In addition to releasing her new album Blue Smoke (it hits U.S. and European stores in May), and expanding her Blue Smoke World Tour, the country legend will now perform at the England’s Glastonbury Festival, it was announced today (Feb. 27).

Parton’s concert will take place on June 29. She joins a bill that also includes such artists as Arcade Fire, Blondie, electronic duo Disclosure, Lily Allen, Warpaint and Stanton Warriors.

The 2014 festival runs June 25-29 at the festival’s Worthy Farm grounds near the town of Pilton in Somerset, England.

This marks Parton’s first year performing at the festival, which has been run by Michael Eavis on the same grounds (his own farm) since 1970.

Parton, who was inducted as a member of the Country Music Hall of Fame in 1999, brings her Blue Smoke World Tour to the U.S. starting May 22.
