The headline acts for Glastonbury 2014 are, almost, in place. Yup, you read right. Almost. Sorted. Wow, Michael Eavis didn't you want to take a teeny-weany break after this summer's fest?
The founder of the world's most popular festival was talking to NME about next year's event and let slip his plans for the coveted headline slot: "Next year's headliners are more or less in place. They're three bands who haven't played Glastonbury, and that's important. There aren't many bands left who haven't played the festival, and before we run out I'd like to persuade the ones on my wish list to come down. I think I've managed that with these three."
The mind boggles about who the three acts can be and, most importantly, how they can top the sheer awesomeness of the Rolling Stones’ performance. Eavis acknowledges this, saying, "It'll be very difficult to repeat what we did this year. You don't top The Rolling Stones, do you? The whole festival was perfect - even the weather. That was pure magic. But we're not going to give up trying to make the next one better." Tickets for the 2014 festival go on sale in October, though you can register to buy a ticket now. Let us know whom you've got your money on for playing the Pyramid Stage. (Personally, this writer would be a very happy individual if Prince decided to grace Worthy Farm with his presence.) (NME)
