He was scheduled to appear at last year's event before cancelling due to the Brexit vote, but is likely to receive a great reception following his successful election campaign which lead to Labour winning more seats, 262 in total, than expected.
Mr Eavis told The Guardian: 'We're Corbyn fans, that's the thing.
Last year, Corbyn was confirmed for a talk at the Worthy Farm festival, in which he was supposed to speak in opposition to the government's Trident initiative.
He added: "He's got something new and precious, and people are excited about it". Eavis is a Corbyn supporter whose political views align with the Labour leader's on issues ranging from nuclear disarmament to anti-austerity. Shadow chancellor John McDonnell and former Greek finance minister Yanis Varoufakis will also be in attendance. At a recent concert at London's Field Day festival, the MC threw his support behind Corbyn and encouraged the crowd to vote Labour.
'It's ridiculous; it's so absurd. Corbyn is on the same page with me on that one. He's going to fight it out, I think'.
Michael Eavis' daughter, Emily - who organises a large part of the festival - also welcomed Corbyn to the festival.
"It's been a really full-on few years, culminating in Brexit and Trump".
