Eavis: ‘2010 will not be better than this year’

Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis has sensationally declared that he doesn't think that 2010's festival will top this year's event.

After securing his long-term headline targets of Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen for this year, the festival chief declared, “we will not do better than this year.”

Despite that, he still urged people "[not to] lose interest though, because it’s going to be a great show.”

But he wasn’t ready to give away any names for 2010 saying, “We’ve got one or two headliners that haven’t played for a few years and one or two that have never played here. But I’m not going to tell you names for that one; it will be the same old guessing game.

“But it will not be better than this year. It has been fantastic with Neil Young and Bruce Springsteen.

Glastonbury Festival 2009 continues today with Blur, The Prodigy and Echo And The Bunnymen.
