Organiser already has headliners picked out

It might only be a week since Glastonbury Festival 2013, but there are already rumours that organiser Michael Eavis has locked down who he wants to headline in 2014 – with Fleetwood Mac, Depeche Mode and Elbow the suggested headlines.

Home of festival related rumours eFestivals say the organiser has already picked who will top the Pyramid stage, but that he won’t make bands put pen to paper until autumn 2013.

But even though he might wait to make the groups sign on the dotted line, Eavis is allegedly adamant about his selection of groups

The full eFestivals report reads: “Whether these two acts will be headlining Glastonbury 2014 we cannot tell you with any certainty, because our understanding is that nothing has been contracted as yet and things often change in the months that pass between a loose verbal agreement and signed contracts(normally in the autumn)… but we’re about as certain as we ever get that Elbow, Fleetwood Mac and Depeche Mode are the three bands Michael Eavis was referring to many months ago when he said he had he 2014 headliners sorted.”

Fleetwood Mac were early favourites to appear at 2013’s festival

Next year’s Glastonbury hits Worthy Farm on June 25-29. A recent Gigwise Poll saw Muse voted readers’ favourites to headline next year’s festival, beating David Bowie and Radiohead.

This year’s festival, held last weekend, saw headline slots from Arctic Monkeys, The Rolling Stones and Mumford and Sons.
