Speaking to NME.com the organiser said that the event is still in negotiations with its headline artists.
When asked if Oasis or Kings Of Leon will be playing he said: "It's definitely neither of those. I can honestly tell you it's neither.
"We're negotiating with the headliners for the Saturday and Sunday. They're definitely guitar bands."
U2 and Arctic Monkeys are the most likely candidates to join Friday night headliners The Prodigy on the bill.
Giddings also revealed who might be appearing at the festival. He said: "I was thinking about booking The Zombies," he said, because they did 'Odessey And Oracle'. They're amazing, because they have musicianship. You don't have bands like that any more."
Other acts already confirmed includes Basement Jaxx, Pendulum and The Ting Tings.
