Bookmakers slash odds for Pulp to headline Glastonbury festival 2011

William Hill now offering 5/2 down from 10/1

The odds for Pulp to headline next year’s Glastonbury festival have dropped from 10/1 to 5/2.

A surge of bets on Jarvis Cocker and co to headline the Pyramid Stage next June has seen William Hill slash the odds.

”The amount of money that we have seen [bet on Pulp] has been quite astonishing,” William Hill‘s Joe Crilly said. “It would lead us to think that a headline slot is certainly within reach for the Sheffield rockers.”

Pulp last headlined Glastonbury in 1995, when they replaced The Stone Roses who pulled out when guitarist John Squire broke his collarbone in a cycling accident.

As previously reported, Pulp have announced they will reform to play Barcelona’s Primavera Sound Festival and London’s Wireless Festival next summer.
