Music fans have more than a year to wait before Glastonbury returns in 2019, but headliner rumours have already begun gaining pace.
They’re being fueled by the man himself, Michael Eavis, who has admitted he’s impatient for another Glastonbury and has spoken about his regret for 2018’s fallow year.
Keen to reignite the hype train, Eavis told Radio 1 at the VO5 NME Awards there’ll be ‘two or three [acts] that have never played’ gracing the line-ups when the festival returns.
The names on everyone’s minds are Fleetwood Mac and Led Zeppelin, as neither legend has played the festival before.
Despite Eavis’s keenness to chat all things Glastonbury 2019, Emily Eavis recently explained the practical benefits of a fallow year to NME.
‘Well the years off are normally quite busy actually,’ she gave away. ‘We spend a lot of time looking at everything and doing bigger, long-term projects. Looking at tickets and passes and things like that’.
‘I think the farm needs and it and the village needs it and we’ll come back with some new ideas as well,’ Michael’s daughter rationed.
Michael Eavis’s new festival, The Variety Bazaar, which will launch in 2021, has been hailed by the founder as his ‘last big gamble’.
He spoke to Glastonbury Free Press about how the event will take place at another location, not Worthy Farm, and won’t interfere with Glastonbury.
And ever the teasers, Emily told efestivals they’ve already booked two of the headliners for 2020, the festival’s 50th anniversary.
