Speaking to BBC Newsbeat ahead Glastonbury tickets going on sale this Sunday (3 October), the organiser revealed that he thought the bill-toppers were as good, if not better than Gorillaz, Muse and Stevie Wonder this year.

Eavis said: "The three headliners are incredibly impressive - I deliberately want to announce them after the tickets have been sold.

"The headliners next year are absolutely fantastic - I can guarantee that. It'll be on a par with this year, and possibly slightly better even."

As reported earlier, Michael Eavis revealed that U2 had been offered a headline slot after pulling out this year.

When asked about the Irish band, he replied: "We don't know yet. We're obviously planning all sorts of things.”

Fans can also expect an American headliner on the Glastonbury 2011 line-up, with Prince rumoured to be appearing.

Glastonbury Festival 2011 will take place at Worthy Farm, Pilton in Somerset from 22-26 June.
