BBC 6Music DJ Huey Morgan, frontman with the Fun Lovin Criminals, has speculated whether Radiohead will be playing Glastonbury Festival 2011.

The singer confirmed he will be playing Glastonbury and revealed that in a private conversation with Radiohead drummer Phil Selway he also confirmed he'll be at Glastonbury Festival this June.

Huey said;

We had Phil Selway, on the show a couple of weeks back, and he was saying he might see me at Glastonbury because I’m gonna be playing, and if he’s going to be there he might be playing. I don’t know, because he’s got a family and what not, he might not want to bring his whole family there, so they might be playing, who knows?

You can listen to a full recording of the show in question on BBC's iPlayer - the quote comes at 8 minutes.

The Sun published reports this past weekend that Coldplay have been booked to headline the Saturday night of the festival.

It's believed U2 will open the festival on the Friday but the closing headline slot on Sunday 26th June is still unconfirmed. Rumours persist that it will be a performance from Prince but Madonna and Radiohead both remain strong rumours after Isle Of Wight Festival boss (and Rolling Stones booking agent) John Giddings denied claims the band will be playing the Pilton festival.
