Her father Michael Eavis had previously hinted that the headline act would consists of two artists combined
Glastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has clarified matters over recent reports regarding the upcoming last headliner announcement.
Michael Eavis recently hinted that the identity of the final Glastonbury headliner will be revealed on June 1, also appearing to imply that the headliner for the Sunday leg would be composed of two artists, rather than one. He also added that they will “most likely” be British and that Coldplay‘s Chris Martin may be involved.
Now, however, Emily Eavis has addressed her father’s comments via Twitter. Responding to a fan who asked “any truth to the rumours of a Sunday night charity super group arranged by Chris Martin?”, Eavis replied: “ah, don’t get confused by the two bands together story! We are announcing one band as headliner but a great penultimate too”.
However, Eavis did not deny that Chris Martin would be involved.
There has been constant speculation over the identity of the artist joining Foo Fighters and Kanye West in headlining this year’s festival. Coldplay are 3/1 favourites with bookmakers William Hill, though Emily Eavis has previously ruled them out of playing. Muse and AC/DC have concerts elsewhere on June 28, so will not be the final headliner.
Other artists confirmed as performing at Glastonbury include Alt-J , Florence And The Machine, The Maccabees, Suede, Jamie T, The Chemical Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Jungle, FKA Twigs,Catfish And The Bottlemen, Belle & Sebastian, The Vaccines, Super Furry Animals, Patti Smith, Hot Chip, Run The Jewels, Future Islands, Charli XCX, Peace and Circa Waves.
