Glastonbury headliners finalised ‘pretty soon’

Coldplay and U2 are out of the running though

The headliners for next year’s Glastonbury festival are set to be finalised “pretty soon”, according to organiser Emily Eavis.

However, Eavis has now ruled out a number of big names who were rumoured to be performing.

Talking to BBC News, she said: “It’s not Coldplay, it’s not U2 and it’s not The Rolling Stones.”

The arrangements are being made relatively early this year, mainly beause the tickets are now available to buy earlier than before.

Eavis said: “Because our tickets go on sale on October 5 we’ve brought it forward. So we’re ensconced in chat about next year and there’s a lot of good feeling after such an amazing festival. We’re talking to a few people at the moment and I think pretty soon we’ll have some stuff sorted.”

Radiohead are currently the bookies’ favourites to headline the event, held in Pilton in Somerset.
