On Monday 23rd February, we became aware that what we had previously thought was the case - that Coldplay would headline - is not actually the case.

This is the first time in 15 years that we've been wrong with who we've said is headlining a major event. We apologise for having got this wrong. 

We make big efforts to try and ensure that the information we give you is correct, but it's impossible for us to know if it really is correct until a festival makes its official announcement, because a festival will neither confirm or deny that a band is playing before they announce their bands.

Despite our error here, our record over the last fifteen years is unequalled by other music outlets, and we hope that will continue and such a big error won't be repeated.

The original article as we published it on 3rd February is below, unaltered.

==========================

eFestivals is confident that one of the acts which will be headline this year's Glastonbury Festival, topping the Pyramid Stage line-up for a fourth time, will be Coldplay.

With last year's ‘Ghost Stories’ firmly behind them, the band who have previously appeared at the Festival in 1999, 2000, 2002, 2005, and 2011,  are expected to release their seventh album this summer, tentatively titled ‘A Head Full Of Dreams’.

West Country born singer Chris Martin has hinted at the band undergoing a conscious ‘unrockulating’ and a farewell tour possibly putting band into hiatus afterwards. Last year he told BBC Radio 1, "It’s our seventh thing, and the way we look at it, it’s like the last Harry Potter book or something like that. Not to say that there might not be another thing one day, but this is the completion of something. I have to think of it as the final thing we’re doing. Otherwise we wouldn’t put everything into it."

All that remains now is the name of the other two headlining acts, with all sorts of possible acts being talked about. We think that the Foo Fighters are one of the others, although we are still not 100% certain. There is speculation that Taylor Swift may be the final headliner, but we are far from sure on that.

This year's sold out Glastonbury Festival runs for five full days from Wednesday 24th until Sunday 28th June 2015 across over a 1,000 acres of beautiful countryside at Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset.

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 2015 rumours, updated as we receive information.

Help us to help you - if you hear of a band that's playing, please let us know

A further release of a limited number of cancelled tickets will happen in April, for those who have registered beforehand so that they are eligible to buy a ticket.

The only act confirmed is Lionel Richie in the Sunday teatime legends slot. There are no other acts confirmed yet for 2015, the line-up will not be announced until spring.
