U2 and Coldplay and are strongly rumoured to be headlining the Friday (24th) and Sunday (26th) nights respectively, but there have been question marks over who will bring the Pyramid Stage to a close on the Saturday (25th)... until now.
Rumours that The Rolling Stones are set to headline Glastonbury Festival 2011 alongside Coldplay and U2 have been fuelled after the group's infamous Tongue and Lip Design image appeared on a Somerset website. Fans noticed that the illustration that been posted on community site Pilton.com and took to Twitter to post the news, which obviously ignited the gossip.
Coldplay were linked with this year's Glastonbury festival when festival founder Michael Eavis says he has booked "three biggest bands in the world" for the event, due to take place in June. Speaking on BBC radio station 6 Music back in May, Eavis predicted Coldplay would be back for 2011. "They've played four or five times already but they'll be back next year, I'm sure," he said from Worthy Farm in Pilton, the site of the festival.
"Rolling stones at glasto?" tweeted Barratt1197, "seems to b hotting up! surely it can't happen?! can it..Facebook msgs today? pilton.com logo? 3rd headliner buked 2day?" Running with the rumour, Ben_Wood88 tweeted: "Listening to The Rolling Stones and praying that it's them who will be one of the big 3 headliners at Glastonbury this year".
Late last year, Rolling Stones guitarist Ronnie Wood said that he’d love to play Glastonbury. Glastonbury Festival 2011 will take place at Worthy Farm, Somerset from 22-26 June. Organiser Emily Eavis took to Twitter herself to confirm that the third headliner had now been booked but speaking to NME, she said that the rumours of Prince, Coldplay and U2 weren’t 100% accurate. "I can't say how many you'd get right, not yet," she told the magazine, "But no, unfortunately you're not right."
