Van Morrison comes to the festival for a career-spanning set that will include music from his new studio album You’re Driving Me Crazy.

Plant said: “It’s been way over 50 years since I first shared the stage with Van Morrison; and his band were positioned no.2 on the charts with ‘Here Comes the Night’.

"His style then and now remains unique and loaded with deep soul. I'm looking forward to an exciting and dynamic night.”
