Bookmakers have stopped taking bets on Fleetwood Mac headlining Glastonbury Festival in 2014

Ladbrokes were previously offering odds of 1/4 on seeing the band, famous for their albums 'Rumours' and 'Tusk', headline the Pyramid Stage in June next year. However, following an increased period of speculation and Fleetwood Mac's recent UK tour dates, the betting has been suspended. Ladbrokes also offer odds on Fleetwood Mac being joined at the top of the bill by Daft Punk, who are currently 6/4 to be named the second headline act.

Joining Fleetwood Mac and Daft Punk as favourites to be headlining the three-day festival in 2014 are Depeche Mode, who have odds of 6/4, while David Bowie is at 3/1. Elbow and Oasis, who would need to reform in order to play, who are currently both listed at 4/1 by the bookmaker. Prince, Kasabian and Arcade Fire are also considered worthy of a bet.

Tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2014 sold out in record time, after going on sale at 9am yesterday (October 6). 120,000 tickets were snapped up in 1 hour and 27 minutes , beating last year's record of 1 hour and 40 minutes. Michael Eavis had recently revealed that over one million people have registered for tickets for next year's event.

Earlier this year, Eavis revealed that he already has all three headliners in place for next year's event.
