Daft Punk are bookies' favourites to play a secret set at this weekend's Glastonbury festival.

The French dance duo are now 6/4 on to surprise Worthy Farm with an unannounced DJ set, bookmakers announced earlier today (June 26). Beady Eye are right behind them at 5/1, with David Bowie at 6/1 and Queens Of The Stone Age at 10/1.

Responding to the persistent Bowie rumours, William Hill spokesperson Joe Crilly told NME: "Who has not been to a festival already this year and heard the rumour that Bowie is there, except for Download perhaps? There will undoubtedly be no change at Glasto, but the odds would suggest there is plenty of weight behind this rumour."

Meanwhile, bets are also being placed on possible special guests during The Rolling Stones' headline set on Saturday, June 29. Jeff Beck is 4/7 favourite to join the band onstage, with Bruce Springsteen a close second at 11/10 and Adele at 11/8. Odds of Bowie performing with the Stones stand at 10/1.

"There is a Glasto-sized hole in Jeff Beck's touring schedule which would allow him to jump onstage to rekindle his bromance with the Stones while the Boss, who plays Hard Rock Calling on Sunday, also has an opportunity to take to the Pyramid on Saturday night," William Hill's spokesperson said in response to the odds.

This year's Glastonbury festival is to be live streamed for the first time with viewers able to watch different stages as the action happens. The BBC will use the latest digital technology to allow viewers to choose from simultaneous live streams from all the major stages and has announced that over 250 hours of footage will be broadcast across the weekend.
