Country queen Dolly Parton performed to the biggest crowd ever amassed in front of Glastonbury's main stage, according to organizer Emily Eavis.

Parton appeared at the iconic British event on Sunday in a late afternoon slot, but she was clearly the biggest draw of the 2014 festival, attracting a huge audience that easily outnumbered those of main headliners Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian.

Now Eavis, whose father Michael founded the festival in 1970, praised Parton for her show-stealing gig and revealed she performed to the biggest ever crowd at the event.

In a post on the official Glastonbury website, Eavis writes, "Oh, Dolly was the biggest crowd I've ever seen here. She is just a truly amazing live performer. Her voice was incredible... I don't think you can beat that performance as a perfect moment here at Glastonbury."
