Glastonbury Festival 2022: Entry to Eurovision Ukraine 2021 will perform at the festival

Ukrainian Eurovision 2021 finalists Go-A have announced they will be making an appearance at Worthy Farm next month – in front of thousands on the John Peel Stage.

The electro-folk group was selected to represent their country in 2020 but instead competed in 2021 after the previous competition was canceled due to the coronavirus pandemic. They finished a respectable fifth at the event in Rotterdam with their song ‘SHUM’.

In a post on Facebook, the group said: “Friends, we have amazing news! We are coming to Glastonbury!
