Glastonbury’s 2015 festival is going to be a more spiritual experience than usual: His Holiness the Dalai Lama will headline the UK festival’s Pyramid Stage on Sunday, June 28th.

The 79-year-old Buddhist monk will deliver a “message of compassion and mutual understanding” during his morning slot. Afterward, he’ll DJ with Thom Yorke inside an abandoned airplane fuselage and make smores with Mumford and Sons.

The 2015 edition of Glastonbury takes place June 24th – 28th in Pilton, UK. The only other confirmed artist is Lionel Richie, who will undo all the purity brought by his Holiness during his Sunday night headlining performance.
