Kylie to close Glastonbury

United Kingdom United Kingdom | by Ross Purdie | 04 February 2005

In an interview with the Wells Journal, Eavis confirmed that Kylie would be making her Glastonbury Festival debut following rumours published in a tabloid paper last week. 

 went on to confirm two more acts, explaining: "Those people who might come along on Sunday to see Kylie Minogue might not enjoy New Order or the White Stripes, so we have something for everyone."

It now seems likely that The White Stripes and New Order will be the other two headliners, although Coldplay are being hotly tipped for one of the slots.

Wells Journal news editor Christian Lockyer told VF: "When I spoke to Michael he said he wanted Kylie for the Sunday because it's the day that lots of people from the surrounding areas visit the festival, and he thought they would appreciate seeing her. He said she would be closing the festival on the Pyramid Stage."  

Doves, Bloc Party, Athlete, Keane, and Embrace are also hotly rumoured to be playing over the June weekend, but nothing will be definite until the full line-up is revealed about a month before the festival.
