Michael Eavis: ‘2010 is the best party of my life’

Michael Eavis has revealed that Glastonbury Festival 40th anniversary is the best party of his life.

The event organiser praised Muse and the weather and talked about The Edge’s cameo appearance on the Pyramid Stage.

“I just had the best night of my life – what a headliner that was,”
he enthused, talking about Muse, “I’ve never enjoyed it so much.”

He also revealed that The Edge asked, “am I getting paid for this?” before taking to the stage last night (Saturday) but he didn’t make clear if it was a joke or not.

The festival chief already has his eyes on next year’s event as well, saying: “we’ve got three really good headliners.”

U2 might be one of them but Eavis said fans might have to wait up to three years until they perform with Bono and Co taking a break next summer and Glastonbury set for a fallow year in 2012.

The festival organiser also said he thought, “Thom [Yorke] and Jonny Greenwood were absolutely brilliant,” up at The Park Stage earlier this weekend.
