Glastonbury festival organiser Emily Eavis has denied rumours that Prince will be appearing at this summer's Glastonbury Festival.

In an interview clip broadcast earlier on 6Music Emily revealed that while they would love to have Prince perform at their Worthy Farm Festival one day it wasn't going to happen this year.

Michael Eavis' daughter also revealed that the organisers were dreaming about the Festival nearly every night and working tirelessly to work out who would be playing where on this summer's bill.

Talking to Mary Anne Hobbs she said, "Ummm .... obviously we'd love to have Prince, but no, not at the moment, Prince is definitely not, um, not playing at the moment.

But, if he did want to play it would be amazing, one day, it would be love ... you know, he's someone that we haven't had and we'd love to have him at Glastonbury.

But no, not yet."

She went on, "For me I get really excited about the new stuff, those on the Park Stage and the smaller stages around the outside of the site which you. You can find someone who is brilliant, and think you can put them on here, because by June everyone is going to be really excited about them. Someone like Courtney Barnett who is brilliant, you think okay, let's give her a really good slot in the afternoon because sher's just at the right point, and by June she could have a big crowd. It's really nice to see that transition, see who by June is going to be really big, or a lot bigger.

"So we're doing all that, the headliners is obviously an important part of it, but there's a whole lot of new music. We've spent all year, and at the moment we are dreaming about it every night, sleepless nights... and a the moment it's constant, the debate about who goes where, and trying to get everything right."

Tickets for Glastonbury have sold out but there is likely to be a resale of returned tickets in the spring, and eFestivals will let ticket buyers know beforehand when the re-sale will be (sometime after registration closes on 20th April).

Anyone aged 13 or over (when the Festival starts) who wishes to buy a ticket must be registered. Registration requires providing basic contact details and uploading a passport-standard photo. Once the photo has been approved, registers are sent a unique registration number that will need to be quoted to book a ticket.

Registration does not reserve or guarantee you a ticket in the resale, but if you don't register you will not be able to buy a weekend ticket for Glastonbury Festival 2014.

This summer's Glastonbury runs for five full days from  Wednesday 25th until Sunday 29th June 2014 across over a 1,000 acres of beautiful countryside at Worthy Farm, Somerset. As ever, entry includes a free programme. Once again, the Festival will be raising more than £2 million in funds for Oxfam, Wateraid, Greenpeace and a host of local charities and causes.

As usual eFestivals will bring you the very best-sourced rumours, allowing festival-goers to see who is playing long before the bands are formally announced - keep your eyes on the Glastonbury 2014 rumours, updated as we receive information. Help us to help you - if you hear of a band that's playing, please let us know
