The Killers, Bruce Springsteen and Kylie are set to headline next year's Glastonbury Festival, according to 'well placed sources',
say the NME...
The weekly music mag, which has a habit of getting these things right (and occasionally wrong), has predicted that The Killers will play the Friday, with Bruce Sprinsteen
headlining the Saturday, before Kylie closes the festival on the Sunday.
The report also
claims that The Who and Scissor Sisters are in the fold to play the 2007 event.
Festival organisers Michael and Emily Eavis have previously hinted
that the festival will feature several "old timers" and Michael has also stated that something "very
special" is being lined up for the Friday - either second or third on the bill.
It has long been rumoured
that Kylie, who was forced to pull out of headlining the Sunday slot in 2005, would accept the invitation
to play next year.
The Killers were asked to
fill in for the stricken pop princess last year, but decided they weren't quite ready. They went on to wow
the Pyramid Stage crowd on the Friday, playing just before headliners The White Stripes.
few were able to predict the possible inclusion of Bruce Springsteen, who will apparently hook up with the
E Street Band for his Saturday headline performance.
VF's message boarders were asked for
their predictions as to who might be headlining the 2007 weekender. Both Kylie and The Killers were mentioned - so two out of three ain't bad! See article
All the above is, of course, speculation
and nothing will be confirmed until the lineup is officially announced next Spring.
takes place at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, from 22-24 June.
