U2, Coldplay, and Beyonce are predicted to headline this year's Glastonbury Festival according to Holy Moly, here.

The news and celebrity gossip website are predicting that their best informants have told them the headliners will be:

"Friday: U2, Saturday: Coldplay, Sunday: Beyonce

Sounds like it's going to be a good one this year, and with the weather seemingly spiralling into Day After Tomorrow territory at the moment, we might even get to go tobogganing
."

Holy Moly have correctly predicted the line-up in the past, and eFestivals believes that they're correct again this year. Our information was that Beyonce was being lined-up for a non-headlining slot. So we guess she has been elevated to Sunday headliner with The Rolling Stones pulling out.

If this prediction is true, it will be the first visit to the Festival for U2 who had to pull out of last year's event after lead singer Bono injured his back, although their guitarist The Edge appeared in 2010 as special guest with headliners Muse.

Coldplay will return to the Festival for the first time since 2005. And Sunday's predicted headliner American singer Beyonce has visited the Festival before with husband Jay-Z when he headlined the Festival in 2008.

Michael Eavis speaking about this year's headliners to the Q Glastonbury Review published after the Festival last year, revealed, "One is a woman who has been before but never headlined."

Tickets have sold out for this summer's Glastonbury Festival which runs for five full days from Wednesday 22nd until Sunday 26th June 2011 across a 1000 hectares (2470 acres) of beautiful countryside at Worthy Farm, Somerset. Resales of unwanted tickets are expected at some point in April.

No other acts are officially confirmed as yet. As usual eFestivals 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 2011 rumours, updated as we receive information.
