Emily Eavis has denied that Oasis are to play this year's Glastonbury festival.

Asked on Twitter to deny the Manchester band would be making an appearance at Worthy Farm in June, the festival organiser replied: "oasis aren't playing this year".

Rumours had begun to spread that the Gallagher brothers were set to reunite to play the Somerset festival after Liam Gallagher tweeted the letters O A S I S and a further tweet which read "OASIS LG" on Thursday night (April 24). Bookmakers Paddy Power and Ladbrokes suspended betting on the possibility of the band reforming and headlining Glastonbury, where the final headliner is yet to be revealed.

However, Ex Oasis guitarist Paul 'Bonehead' Arthurs told NME Gallagher's tweets may have been posted simply because the former bandmates went out for a drink together. Asked what Gallagher's tweets could have meant, Bonehead said: "Probably the fact that I texted him going, ‘Meet me in the beer garden’. That probably rattled his cage. Maybe that. I don’t know though, because I meet him every fucking month. Maybe he’s just reminiscing."
