    Coldplay Eyed For Glastonbury 2009

    festival.jpgGlastonbury organiser Emily Eavis has revealed that Radiohead, Coldplay and Led Zeppelin are all on her wishlist to play next year's festival.


    Talking exclusively to Mirror.co.uk, Emily also revealed that as the photo registration system had worked so well this time round, all 135,000 tickets for next year's event were going on sale next month rather than in April as usual. There's also speculation that Stevie Wonder is being lined up for the 'Sunday afternoon legend' spot at the three-day bash next June.


    Emily told us: "Coldplay are a great Glastonbury band, as are Radiohead, but it's really hard to say at the moment for definite who's going to play next year. It would be really good to have an appearance by Led Zeppelin too, that's one band who haven't played here. "That would be quite a one-off. But I don't know whether or not it's going to happen...We're weighing up all the options at the moment and we should have more of an idea by Christmas."

    Emily also said there were no hard feelings towards Noel Gallagher, after he slammed the decision to have rapper Jay-Z headline the festival this year. "Oasis are always welcome at Glastonbury," she laughed.


    Emily also added that they were already looking for big names to play Glasto's 40th anniversary event in 2010. Tickets for Glastonbury 2009 are going on sale at October 5 and can be bought with a £50 deposit, with the balance of the estimated £170 ticket price to be paid before the beginning of April.


    Tickets for this year's event were slow to sell and only sold out when the event was underway, which Emily said had prompted them to make them available early this year. As the registration system had worked so well, people can also now buy unlimited numbers of tickets as opposed to four per person - but again, a separate name and photo must be provided for each ticket to combat touting.


    Emily added that paying a deposit now would give people more time to save up for their tickets too so they could get music lovers who really wanted to go to the festival rather than just those who had the money. "Hopefully now, it's a much fairer system," she added.
