Kasabian and Foo Fighters are early favourites to headline Glastonbury 2014, with Oasis an outside bet according to bookmakers.

A spokesperson for bookmakers William Hill announced that both Kasabian, who last played the festival in 2009, and Foo Fighters, last seen at Glastonbury in 1998, have odds of 6/1 to top the bill in 2014. Both acts are believed to be releasing new albums next year and bookmakers are confident of seeing them appear on The Pyramid Stage. Other bands and artists tipped to follow this year's headliners include Noel Gallagher, The Stone Roses, Prince, Daft Punk and David Bowie.

With odds of 25/1, Oasis are also in the running. Liam Gallagher recently said that he'd be interested in reforming the band in 2014 to celebrate the 20th anniversary of their debut album, 'Definitely Maybe'.

"Kasabian and the Foo Fighters are festival royalty and with some new material potentially in the offing, they are always going to be in the forefront of the Glasto thinking next year," said William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly . "Although with Sabbath (25/1) reforming and scaling the charts with their new release and a potential Oasis (25/1) anniversary in the offing, there is a little bit of outside value to be found in the market."

At this weekend's festival, bands and artists including Johnny Marr, Haim and Foals spoke to NME about who they want to see headline Glastonbury in 2014. Click here to see who they selected.
