Yesterday we revealed that Michael Eavis has Elbow pencilled in to headline Glastonbury 2014. Today we tell you who else is on the cards to headline.
Firstly, to not much surprise, are Fleetwood Mac. They were originally planned as a headliner for this year, but that didn't come to fruition as Mick & co seemingly decided to chase the money with a bigger tour.
A greater surprise for many are the other act, at one time the world's most popular band - Depeche Mode. Word reached us months ago that band members were excitedly talking about having been offered the chance to headline Glastonbury 2014, and as far as we're aware that still stands. However, we have heard some whispers in recent days of perhaps-changed festival priorities for next year.
Whether these two acts will headline 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 the 2014 headliners sorted.
eFestivals struggled this year in getting solid info for who would headline this June's Glastonbury Festival, so it was somewhat amusing from this seat to have word of the 2014 plans come to us from a number of different directions when we couldn't get a handle on 2013.
Keep your eyes on our Glastonbury Festival 2014 line-up page for more rumours as we get them over the next year ... we may even have news of one of the acts being lined-up as an Other Stage headliner for you soon (we're still needing further verification of what we're hearing).
If you hear rumour of who will be playing at Glastonbury 2014, please do send us details of what you've heard and where you've heard it - we're always grateful for your contributions. Send what you hear to firstname.lastname@example.org.
