Organiser says a big act act will play an unannounced slot this year
Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has revealed that there will be a secret appearance from a big band on the festival’s Park Stage once more this year.
Eavis was speaking in NME‘s new free 16-page guide to this summer’s festivals, which comes with the new issue of the magazine. It’s on UK newsstands tomorrow (May 4) or available digitally.
Asked about the possibility of Radiohead playing a secret set at the event, Eavis denied this, but did say that they have a special guest in line. “We do have a special guest on the Park Stage that’s a really big thing for us,” she explained. “It’s a band who could potentially be headlining.”
Eavis added that she believed the special guest would draw such a crowd that the organisers “might have to close the field” as they did last year when Radiohead‘s Thom Yorke and Johnny Greenwood played an unannounced set.
