There has been intense speculation across the British music media in recent weeks about a possible acoustic appearance from the Oasis man at Worthy Farm.
The rumours have been centred around NME reports which claimed to have persuaded Michael Eavis to offer Noel a slot.
He has played acround the world in recent months, accompanied by fellow Oasis star Gem Archer, to promote last year's greatest hits album 'Stop The Clocks'.
But a recent statement on Oasis' official website has denied the Glastonbury rumours, saying Oasis will be working new material instead.
The statement reads: "Oasisinet wants to qualify a few stories running across various music and entertainment websites over the past few days that have been a little wide of the mark.
"Noel Gallagher is not preparing to launch into a solo career nor will he be playing at Glastonbury this June, as have been strongly suggested in some circles.
"He is an avid fan of the festival and will no doubt be on site checking out a few of his favourite bands again this year.
"Noel, along with Gem,
have had a great time performing their semi acoustic shows recently and will continue to do so when it feels like a good idea,
however Glastonbury is not on the agenda."
