Bruce Springsteen drops out of contention for Glastonbury
Glastonbury organisers have admitted Bruce Springsteen will not be playing next year’s festival.
The singer had been strongly linked with a headlining slot at the 2007 event. However, revealing that they now have booked the three main acts for the Pyramid Stage, Emily Eavis told NME.COM that unfortunately The Boss was not among them.
“There’s been lots of talk about next year’s headliners, and we’re
pleased to say we have finally decided on all three of them,” she explained. “Some of the rumours have been close, but none have been totally right yet, and Bruce isn’t going to be appearing. We’ve got our top choices for the Pyramid and Other stage and we’re over the moon about them down here.”
With the bigger bands in place, Eavis is turning her attentions to the smaller bands on the bill, and was encouraging new bands to try to win a slot at the festival.
“If you’re a new band and you haven’t got an agent and you want the chance to play, please go to our website Glastonburyfestivals.co.uk and enter the competition.”
As previously reported, entries for The Glastonbury Festival Emerging Talent Competition 2007 are now being accepted, with the prize of a slot on the Other Stage up for grabs.
