AC/DC say they would headline Glastonbury ‘if they ask’

Angus Young and Brian Johnson spoke to BBC 6 Music about the possible Worthy Farm appearance

AC/DC have revealed that they would be open to the idea of headlining Glastonbury festival if asked.

Speaking to BBC 6 Music‘s Steve Lamacq and Shaun Keaveny yesterday, the Australian band were initially sceptical about the prospect.

“I don’t know if there’s rock and roll there, is there?,” the band’s guitarist Brian Johnson asked. “I don’t know, please don’t ask me, I’m really not up on it. I thought it was wellies and corporate, I don’t know!”


However, when informed of Metallica’s headline set last year, the band appeared more keen. “If they ask… OK,” Angus Young added. “If they ask I’ll say he sent us, Shaun sent us.”

Next year’s Glastonbury festival will run from June 24-28, 2015 at its traditional home of Worthy Farm, Somerset.

Lionel Ritchie was recently confirmed for a Sunday afternoon slot at the festival, while Fleetwood Mac were ruled out of headlining next year after signing an exclusivity deal to headline Isle Of Wight festival.

The likes of Foo Fighters and Oasis have been heavily tipped for the headline slots in 2015. Noel Gallagher recently stated that he’s “available that weekend” but failed to comment on the possibility of Oasis reforming for the event.

AC/DC, meanwhile, released their new album ‘Rock Or Bust’ this week (December 1). It’s AC/DC’s first album since 2008’s ‘Black Ice’. It was recorded in spring 2014 at Warehouse Studio in Vancouver with producer Brendan O’Brien and mixed by Mike Fraser.
