The Dalai Lama is reportedly heading to the Glastonbury Festival. He appeared to have self-announced his appearance on the music festival in Pilton, England, on June 28, but has deleted the entry on his Web site.

The Glastonbury Festival has been inspired by the ethos of the peace and love since its conception in the ‘70s. With all the musical acts that have graced its stages over the decades, it appears that it has finally landed the ultimate guest who embodies the spirit of the festival.

The 14th and current Dalai Lama, whose real name is Tenzin Gyatso, had confirmed his appearance on the five-day event on his official Web site on Monday. However, the June 28 entry was deleted soon after the news made rounds online.

“His Holiness will give a talk at the Glastonbury Festival in the morning,” the announcement read. Although it was deleted, there’s still a gap in the spiritual leader’s schedule.

He will be in Perth on June 14 to give a public talk on “The Wisdom of Giving and Receiving,” and will travel to England on June 29 for the “Buddhism in the 21st Century” discussion. The Glastonbury Festival 2015 will be held from June 24 to 28.

Festival organisers refuse to confirm or deny the Dalai Lama’s appearance, prompting speculations that they are trying to keep the year’s line-up a secret. The only confirmed act is Lionel Richie, who will be headlining the event on June 28, taking the teatime slot on the Pyramid Stage.

“We are over the moon,” co-organiser Emily Eavis said, adding that the festival has had amazing performances in the teatime slot over the years, including Neil Diamond, Shirley Bassey, Paul Simon and Dolly Parton. “So we felt very lucky to get the call from a true Motown legend asking to play next year. He’s got so many amazing songs, to see him perform here on the farm is just going to be wonderful.”
