Adele 'Refuses To Headline Glastonbury Festival 2013'

Michael Eavis claims she doesn't want to play crowds of such a huge size...

Glastonbury Festival boss Michael Eavis has revealed that Adele has rejected his offer to headline the event in 2013.

The Someone Like You singer, who picked up two gongs at the Ivor Novello Awards yesterday (17th May), has apparently refused to perform as the main act on the Pyramid Stage because she is uncomfortable playing to huge crowds.

Speaking of Adele to The Metro, Eavis claimed: "She knows that we want her anyway, but she doesn't want to do a thing our size,

"Going on the Pyramid Stage is a bit daunting in front of 80,000 people; it's a bit much really."

He went on to add that the 24-year old would rather hang-out with her pals at the festival instead of taking to the stage,  stating: "She comes every year usually, and has her own little party."

Earlier this week, reports suggested that Adele will re-release her hit 21 LP which could feature new songs, with a source telling The Daily Star: "A repackaged album is currently being discussed.

"It's not yet confirmed that it will feature new material or songs that didn't make the original album but it makes sense to bring it out."

The record, which recently passed the 9million sales mark in America, has now sold over 18million copies worldwide.
