Fleetwood Mac and Queen not playing Glasto, confirms Mike Eavis

By | Published on Friday 31 October 2014


Dear anyone playing the ongoing game of ‘who’s not headlining Glastonbury in 2015’ (I know I am), please add Queen and Fleetwood Mac to your list. Because they’re practically definitely not. Headlining Glasto 2015, that is.

Or at least that’s what Michael Eavis has said. And really, if anyone in the world knows about things like this, it’s him.

Speaking via the latest edition of Music Week, Eavis said, when asked if Queen and one-time bookies faves Fleetwood Mac might, perchance, be taking the highest billing on the Pyramid Stage next year, this: “Queen? Not Queen, no. Fleetwood Mac don’t seem to be available at the moment. But we’ve got three excellent headliners for next year”.

One of whom, he added, has “been around for a long time”. My guess is: my dad.

Anyway this was fun, wasn’t it? Stay tuned for another round of ‘who’s not headlining Glastonbury in 2015’, coming soon…
