The dust has barely begun to settle on this year’s Glastonbury and already the rumour mill is turning. The Independent has speculated that AC/DC have been snapped up to headline in 2015, while Michael Eavis has already confirmed that three bands have been signed to top the bill.
One deal was struck during Metallica’s headline set, while Eavis offered a tiny hint in a press conference on Sunday (quotes via the Independent):
“We’ve got some good headliners,” he said. “We had an agent yesterday on the platform by the stage watching Metallica with me, saying: ‘My band want to do it next year.’ I can’t tell you who it was but that was done on the platform watching Metallica.”
He added, stoking the Indy’s AC/DC fire: “Is it a British artist? He’s definitely British, but the band are not British anymore.”
Eavis also addressed the perennial Prince question, but the Purple One is not one of the three headliners inked in: “We’re always having a go at Prince, but it’s up to him whether he wants to do it or not. Most of the people in the world want him to play here. I did ask him to hop on the train and come down so I can show him around the farm sometime. It hasn’t been taken up yet.”
