Glastonbury 2009 could have four headliners

Michael Eavis says tickets for the festival are almost all sold out

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis has said this year’s festival is likely to have four headliners, rather than the traditional three.

Despite the festival still having three full days of music, Eavis says the Saturday night is set to feature two headline acts.

Speaking at the Midem music conference in Cannes, Eavis said all four headline acts are close to being confirmed, reports BBC News.


“You’ll be amazed when you hear the headliners we’ve got coming this year, and we’ve already sold 90 per cent of the tickets for this year already,” Eavis said.

He added, “We’ve got four headliners at the moment. If they all confirm, then I’ve got two headliners for Saturday.”

If confirmed, it would be the first time the festival featured a co-headlining bill.

Blur, Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen are all strongly rumoured to be playing the festival.

The 2009 festival takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton on June 26, 27 and 28 this summer. See for ticket details.
