Next year's Glastonbury headliners are already booked, says Michael Eavis

The punters of this year's Glastonbury Festival may still be making their way off the site as we speak, but that hasn't stopped founder Michael Eavis from getting to work on next year's event.

At an annual press conference held on the Sunday morning of Glastonbury each year, Eavis announced that all three of next year's headliners had already been booked, one of which was decided while Metallica played their headlining set on the Saturday night.

Eavis said: "We've got three headliners already – and that's without Prince. We've got some good headliners. We had an agent [for a band] yesterday on the platform by the stage watching Metallica with me, saying, 'My band want to do it next year'. I can't tell you who it was but that was done on the platform watching Metallica. Is it a British artist? He's definitely British, but the band are not British any more."

As cryptic as those clues might be, the rumour mill is already working at full speed to decipher those clues. As for the rumours that Prince will be at next year's festival, Eavis made it clear that it was still a work in progress.

"We're always having a go at Prince, but it's up to him whether he wants to do it or not. Most of the people in the world want him to play here. I did ask him to hop on the train and come down so I can show him around the farm sometime. It hasn't been taken up yet."
