Coldplay to headline Glastonbury Festival
February 15, 2011 10:17 am
Band confirmed for Saturday night Pyramid slot





Good morning. It's just been confirmed on the Glastonbury Festival website that Coldplay will headline the Pyramid Stage on Saturday night at this year's festival, on June 25th.

"Coldplay have played such a major part in the Festival over the last 10 years or so," said Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis. "As their popularity grew around the world I was so proud of them. This is the triumphant return of a band that everyone here feels part of. They're one of the greatest phenomena to grow from these fields."

This will be the band's first appearance at the legendary festival since 2005. Tickets for the Festival sold out months ago, but a limited resale of cancelled tickets is expected in April (though you do need to be registered in order to buy tickets).

----------------------------------------------------------------------------

It's their first pilgrimage to Worthy Farm since 2005 - when they went down a storm.

Glasto guru MICHAEL EAVIS and his event organisers have been chasing CHRIS MARTIN and the lads to make a return - as Bizarre revealed in October.

And this week the rockers finally put pen to paper on the deal.

One massive outfit who will not be performing in Pilton are the ROLLING STONES.

Bash bosses had tabled a huge offer for MICK JAGGER's gang to make their festival debut at Glasto, which kicks off on June 22.

But after mulling over the deal for the past three months, the veterans have turned down the chance.

A source said: "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."

Still, Coldplay aren't too much of a shonky replacement. Their back catalogue is filled with anthems perfect for the Pyramid Stage.

And they're bound to get a massive welcome. UK crowds don't get much bigger than the 200,000 or so who squeeze into the Somerset site for the huge bash.

Now let's get Radiohead for that sunday slot and it should be a pretty killer set of headliners.

This isn't official though, is it? It's not confirmed. It's from a 'source'

However, after all the months of speculation, if they aren't there people are going to be asking for refunds!:p

Well, there's a resale in April! (Which will be near impossible to get if Coldplay are announced before that) I'm gonna try my hardest anyway.
