Michael Eavis On Glasto 2015: "We've Got Three Headliners Already"
Glastonbury Festival founder rules out Prince but hints at Iron Maiden's participation at next year's event...
Glastonbury Festival organiser Michael Eavis has confirmed that he's already booked three headliners for the 2015 event.
Eavis made the revelation when speaking at the annual press conference following this year's Glasto, with the founder outlining that Prince - who was widely rumoured to grace the Pyramid Stage in 2014 - does not feature among the names.
He explained: "We're always having a go at Prince, but it's up to him whether he wants to do it or not. Most of the people in the world want him to play here.
"I did ask him to hop on the train and come down so I can show him around the farm sometime. It hasn't been taken up yet."
Eavis went on to add that one of next year's headliners was finalised during Metallica's storming set on the Pyramid Stage last Saturday (June 28).
He confessed: "We've got three headliners already. We've got some good headliners.
"We had an agent yesterday on the platform by the stage watching Metallica with me, saying, 'My band want to do it next year'. I can't tell you who it was but that was done on the platform watching Metallica."
Eavis went on to tease the possibility that Iron Maiden could front the Worthy Farm event in 2015, stating: "It it a British artist? He's definitely British, but the band are not British any more."
