Tabloid newspaper The Sun has published reports today that stadium rock-pop outfit Coldplay will be headlining Glastonbury Festival this June.
Speculation over the headline acts has been rife since last summer’s event but The Sun believe Coldplay have been confirmed this week as a headliner for the saturday night of Glastonbury Festival 2011 in Pilton, Somerset.
Coldplay have been confirmed for a series of European festivals including Rock Werchter 2011 in Belgium and Pinkpop 2011 in the Netherlands, both of these festival dates fit either side of Glastonbury Festival.
The newspaper also said The Rolling Stones had turned down a “huge offer” to play the Worthy Farm festival from 22-26 June.
A source told the newspaper: “Getting the Stones to Glastonbury has been high on Michael Eavis’s list of priorities for a long time. He came really really close this time round.
“He came up with an incredibly tempting offer and Mick and the rest of the band were considering it closely but they ultimately decided to turn it down.“
Jessie J, Jimmy Cliff, Fatboy Slim, The Coral, Beyonce and Rihanna are among the other Glastonbury Festival rumours and self-confirmed acts.
Glastonbury Festival 2011 tickets are currently sold out with re-sale tickets expected to go on sale in the spring.
