The Killers are now bookies’ favourites to take a headline slot at this year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Brandon Flowers and co, who released their latest album ‘Wonderful Wonderful‘ in 2017, surprised fans at Worthy Farm that same year with a surprise performance on the John Peel Tent. The Las Vegas band previously topped the bill back in 2007.

Now, with Stormzy the only headline act confirmed for this June’s festival, The Killers have become favourites to bag one of the remaining closing slots.
After a sudden increase in bets, the group currently have odds of 1/2 on 888sport to appear on the Pyramid Stage on either Saturday, June 29 or Sunday, June 30, 2019.
“’Somebody Told Me’ that The Killers could be on for another Glastonbury headliner slot this year – so we’ve cut our odds after they’ve been well backed,” said a spokesman for 888sport. “Brandon Flowers would certainly be ‘The Man’ for the job, and after a flurry of bets, we think they’re set to light up the Pyramid Stage once again.”
The Cure are also heavily-rumoured to headline, with odds now standing at 2/5. Robert Smith and the band are set to headline “around 20 festivals” in 2019 – having already been announced to appear at NOS Alive, Rock Werchter, and many more.
Elsewhere, The Strokes have odds of 6/4, with Arctic Monkeys at 5/2.
Meanwhile, Glastonbury have recently confirmed that Janelle Monae will headline the West Holts stage this year, with Kylie Minogue set to take on the Sunday legends slot.
Meanwhile, Glasto’s Emily Eavis has recently discussed new developments on the festival site. She revealed that Arcadia are working on a new area and completely new design, Bloc 9 are expanding down in the South East corner with a ‘mind-blowing’ new installation and The Park has got a whole new area.
