Glastonbury fans have been speculating for months as to which bands will be headlining the festival in 2019. From the likes of Madonna, Elton John and the Arctic Monkeys – almost every iconic act has been rumoured to be taking on the Pyramid Stage, yet the three headliners are yet to be confirmed. According to a number of tweets, co-organiser Emily Eavis has reportedly claimed that three huge rumoured names have actually not been booked.
During a talk in aid of St Margaret’s Hospice, it is said that the 39-year-old claimed Madonna, Led Zeppelin and Fleetwood Mac have not been booked for the event. Even though reps for the festival are yet to confirm or deny these claims, it appears that fans shouldn’t be getting their hopes up for these acts to make an appearance. There have been a number of names thrown around about the potential line up next year. Even Liam Gallagher got on board with the speculation as he teased fans he was on the bill for the festival. Having headlined the festival as part of Oasis twice (back in ’95 and 2004) he’s got the guts to pull of a top billing at the world’s most iconic musical pligrimage. The 45-year-old hinted that he was in talks for something Glasto related when he revealed he’d enjoyed a meeting with founder Michael Eavis. Keeping things suitably cryptic he told them he’d see them ‘both next year.’ ‘Big thanx to the ever delightful Michael and Emily eavis for last night see you both nxt year as you were LG x,’ he tweeted out.
Bradley Cooper has since praised the festival after revealing he spent four days there in 2017 filming for his new film A Star Is Born. Speaking at the Toronto Film Festival, he said: ‘I spent four days there in all and learned so much about its inner workings. ‘It’s the largest privately-owned music festival in the world and it is the place that makes and rejuvenates careers.’ He added: ‘You watch major, huge musicians still get nervous about playing on the Pyramid Stage. ‘It’s still this place of fear and beauty.’
