Katy Perry has chained herself to one of Britain’s largest pop culture events.

The pop superstar announced early Thursday that she will perform as part of the 2017 Glastonbury lineup, joining previously announced artists, including Ed Sheeran, Foo Fighters, and Radiohead, for a five-day celebration of music amid the U.K. countryside.

“I can has tea and crumpets!?” Perry tweeted, additionally sharing an Instagram post that reads “I am playing Glastonbury 2017.” The show is her first announced 2017 gig.

Glastonbury also announced its full 2017 lineup, which includes Major Lazer, Alt-J, Lorde, Solange, The National, Run the Jewels, Stormzy, Phoenix, Goldfrapp, Haim, The xx, Father John Misty, Clean Bandit, The Flaming Lips, Dizzee Rascal, Anderson .Paak, and more.

Bee Gees singer Barry Gibb is taking the fest’s Sunday slot (traditionally reserved for music “legends”), joining fellow industry vets like Chic, The Jacksons, and Kris Kristofferson.

Earlier this year, Perry, 32, released her first single from a studio album in nearly three years, dropping the disco-influenced socio-political anthem “Chained to the Rhythm” on Feb. 10. The song peaked at No. 4 on the Billboard Hot 100, and Perry has since teased several new singles from a forthcoming LP of what she dubs “purposeful pop.”

Major acts to play Glastonbury in the recent past include Adele, Coldplay, Muse, Kanye West, and Florence + the Machine.

Glastonbury 2017 runs from June 21 to 25 at Worthy Farm in Pilton, Somerset. For a full roster of artists scheduled to perform, head to the festival’s official website.
