So Michael Eavis has come out today saying that he has the 3 biggest bands lined up to headline next years Glastonbury festival.
"Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis confirmed to eFestivals that next year's Festival will be headlined by "The three biggest bands in the world. You won't believe who we've got." The farmer made the statement exclusively to eFestivals at Friday's Pilton Party 2010.
His daughter Emily, who also organises the event, clarified to eFestivals that the third headliner is not yet a signed and sealed deal but everything is now expected to slot into place. Because Eavis made this new comment so soon after he revealed he hoped to book U2, it looks likely that the third headliner will be the Irish act."
So who could the bands be at the festival which is scheduled for the 22nd to the 26th of June? The safest bets will be on Coldplay and U2. The latter considering have an 8 day break between their Anaheim gig on the 18th June and East Lansig gig on the 26th as part of their North American leg of the tour. As for Coldplay, well the Eavis's have made it no secret that they desire to see one of their favourite bands back for 2011!
So I'm going for
Rolling Stones (Saturday)
They don't come much bigger than those three!
