Or he can only be one of the hosts or probably perfoming one song featuring other bands.

Digital Spy brings up a few interesting points

[h=1]It's a big one! Final Glastonbury headliner is apparently two acts[/h]Despite Glastonbury Festival confirming over 70 acts last week, there's still one massive question left unanswered: who is the final headliner?

It's an answer we'll have to wait until June 1 to find out, apparently, after Michael Eavis revealed during a talk at the V&A museum in London last night (April 21) that's when the big announcement will be.



But farmer Eavis had more teasing to do. He alluded that it may not necessarily be a final headliner to announce, but rather final headliners.

The announcement, he went on to emphasise, will be a "big one", according to eFestivals, while he added that the bands involved were "most likely" British.

Although Emily Eavis has asserted that Coldplay aren't the final headliner earlier this year, Michael Eavis has explained that frontman Chris Martin is involved with the upcoming announcement.

So now, instead of having the one simple question of 'who is the final headliner?', we have even more queries.

Is Chris Martin doing a special acoustic set with someone? Will it be a supergroup scenario? Has he helped The Stone Roses write new material to perform? Was Emily bluffing and Coldplay are, in fact, the final headliners with special guests?

We'll have to stick it out until June 1 to find out.

Regarding lolla berlin
"remaining act, [which] might have been the first one to be booked, yet…will be the last one to be revealed during a grand event," according to a statement released announcing the lineup.
That would mean they would have booked coldplay as one of the first bands a long time ago, i don't see it happening.

is there any chance that the final headliners are U2, & Chris will play alongside because Bono hasn't fully recovered?

Unless A Head Full Of Dreams is released before Glastonbury (which I very much doubt), I don't want them to perform. Otherwise it's MX all over again with he new songs being played and the first time we hear them are not good quality and live and all that. It just ruins the experience

Emily Eavis addresses rumours of two acts headlining Sunday night of Glastonbury Her father Michael Eavis had previously hinted that the headline act would consists of two artists combined



Emily Eavis addresses rumours of two acts headlining Sunday night of Glastonbury Photo: GettyGlastonbury Festival organiser Emily Eavis has clarified matters over recent reports regarding the upcoming last headliner announcement.



Michael Eavis recently hinted that the identity of the final Glastonbury headliner will be revealed on June 1, also appearing to imply that the headliner for the Sunday leg would be composed of two artists, rather than one. He also added that they will "most likely" be British and that Coldplay's Chris Martin may be involved.

Now, however, Emily Eavis has addressed her father's comments via Twitter. Responding to a fan who asked "any truth to the rumours of a Sunday night charity super group arranged by Chris Martin?", Eavis replied: "ah,don't get confused by the two bands together story! We are announcing one band as headliner but a great penultimate too".

However, Eavis did not deny that Chris Martin would be involved.

There has been constant speculation over the identity of the artist joining Foo Fighters and Kanye West in headlining this year’s festival. Coldplay are 3/1 favourites with bookmakers William Hill, though Emily Eavis has previously ruled them out of playing. Muse and AC/DC have concerts elsewhere on June 28, so will not be the final headliner.

Other artists confirmed as performing at Glastonbury include Alt-J , Florence And The Machine, The Maccabees, Suede, Jamie T, The Chemical Brothers, Alabama Shakes, Jungle, FKA Twigs,Catfish And The Bottlemen, Belle & Sebastian, The Vaccines, Super Furry Animals, Patti Smith, Hot Chip, Run The Jewels, Future Islands, Charli XCX, Peace and Circa Waves.
