Emily Eavis has confirmed that The Stone Roses won't be playing Glastonbury 2013.

The organiser took to Twitter this morning to canvass public opinion on who should headline the festival. "Right, the time has come to ask you all who you want to see at next years' Glastonbury..let us know as we gather all our ideas and get going!" she wrote.

In reponse to one user, who requested The Stone Roses, she replied: "Stone Roses not playing next year."

The newly-reformed Manchester legends were hotly tipped to play the festival, with Michael Eavis telling NME back in August: "I'm very keen on The Stone Roses – I always have been. They played at Pilton Party for 300 people in 1995, which is the year they cancelled on the main event and Pulp stepped in to replace them. I would like them to come back at some point. Are they a possible headliner for next year? I think it is possible, yeah."

According to reports, the Roses may be set to release a new studio album in 2013. The band, who originally split up in 1996, reunited last year and have taken part in a globetrotting reunion tour this year, which has included three sold-out gigs at Manchester's Heaton Park and a series of festival headline sets.
