Emily Eavis confirms Adele will not perform at Glastonbury this year

Singer had been rumoured to be making live return at 2015 festival

Adele will not perform at Glastonbury this year according to the event’s organiser Emily Eavis.

The singer’s name had been mentioned by some in relation to one of this year’s headline slots in reports published earlier this week. However, speaking to The Sun, Eavis said she was able to confirm officially that the rumours were unfounded and that Adele won’t be appearing.

“That’s not true. That’s the only denial I will do,” Eavis said when asked if Adele will headline Glastonbury. “I would love Adele. To have Adele would be a complete dream, but she’s not going to be here this year.”

Foo Fighters confirmed they are to headline the 2015 event in their acceptance speech at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas earlier this week.

Foo Fighters were unable to attend the ceremony in person, but sent a video acceptance speech in which they thanked rock legend Chrissie Hynde of the Pretenders for presenting them with the award before revealing their high-profile summer slot – the first of the three Glastonbury headliners to be made public.

Last year, NME.COM users voted for Oasis as the band they would most like to see headline Glastonbury next year.

The 2014 festival saw headline performances from Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian.
