Glastonbury Founder Michael Eavis Reveals 2014 Headliners Are Three Bands Who’ve Never Played Before

Michael Eavis Glastonbury’s founder revealed to Nme that next year three bands who have never played at Worthy Farm before will headline.

This year’s festival featured headliners The Rolling Stones, who made the return to Somerset for the first time in their 50-year history and demonstrated as that they will be a tough act to follow.

Eavis admitted: “It'll be very difficult to repeat what we did this year. You don't top The Rolling Stones, do you?" adding "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. I've a team of about 20 people who book the young musicians and I look after booking the headliners. That's such a privilege and I hope I've done a worthwhile job if these three bands are confirmed. I hope to do that soon."

Punters are already betting on Daft Punk and Fleetwood Mac to make the trek to Somerset for the two-day festival, running from June 27-29 with tickets set for sale in October.
