Glastonbury organiser also rules out Green Day from playing this June's bash

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has said she wants Dizzee Rascal to play at the 2010 event.

Although the rapper hasn’t been officially confirmed, Eavis told BBC 6 Music that he is likely to feature on the bill for the second year running.

“We’ve gotta have Dizzee, I think that’s a given,” she revealed.

Eavis added that the festival is still trying to secure it’s third headliner. So far, U2 are the only headliner act to have been confirmed by Eavis (though she recently said she would reveal another in the next few weeks).

“We are working on it full-time, and we’re trying to get our third headliner at the moment, which is quite exciting,” she explained.

Elsewhere, Eavis confirmed that Green Day are not on the bill for this year’s festival, and hinted that ticketholders should expect a few early morning surprises.

“It’s really interesting booking it because a lot of bands are saying, ‘We really want to do it but how about we open the Pyramid Stage rather than close it?’ And it’s like, ‘That’s a good idea’. There’s quite a lot of stuff going around, so that’s exciting.”

She also hinted that Will Young “might be making an appearance” at the festival, where he has performed regularly in the past.
