Glastonbury 2014 Headliners Will Be Glastonbury Virgins

Written by Greg Moskovitch on September 5, 2013

With the dust barely settled since having been kicked up by The Rolling Stones‘ incredible performance, speculation about the Glastonbury 2014 headliners is already sluicing through the rumour mill, with festival founder Michael Eavis already dropping hints.

Dairy farmer and Glastonbury founder Eavis was presenting an award to singer-songwriter Billy Bragg at the AIM Independent Music Awards and took some time out to talk to NME about the 2014 lineup, saying:

“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.”

Eavis didn’t provide any details on who the headliners might be, but did narrow the hunt down considerably. There are relatively few acts today big enough to headline the iconic UK festival that haven’t already played it at some stage. “It’ll be very difficult to repeat what we did this year,” said Eavis “You don’t top The Rolling Stones, do you?”

Indeed you don’t, though major acts to rival the Stones’ incredible headline performance might include Daft Punk, Fleetwood Mac, Black Sabbath, Prince, Madonna, and/or Kylie, all of whom have been rumoured to be playing the festival over the last few years.
