    Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis talks about booking headliners Coldplay

    glastonbury.jpgGlastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis has been talking to the official Glastonbury Festival website about the recent headliner announcements including Coldplay today and how preparations for this year's Festival are coming along. You can read the full interview at the website; below are the Coldplay exerpts...


    Then, of course, you confirmed Coldplay as Saturday's headliners today.

    Yes, we were really lucky to get them. It's been a while since they came and played here, so I think this will be a big one. They're one of the great Glastonbury bands, that really get what we're about and that have supported us through some tricky times...

    As your dad said, they really have grown up with the Festival.

    Yeah, they started on the John Peel tent in 1999, then moved to the Other Stage in 2000 [pic, left], before making a huge jump to Pyramid headliners 2002. There aren't many bands that rise that fast. They are loved here, and deliver such powerful live shows - it will be awesome.


    And we gather from Coldplay's Twitter page that Chris Martin was down at the farm at the weekend?

    Yes, they came to look at the farm and the field to start planning their show.
