    The Sun - 'Coldplay Will Headline Glastonbury For The Fourth Time'

    According to The Sun, Coldplay will headling Glastonbury 2016. If they do, it will be their fourth time they will headline the Worthy Farm festival.


    The Sun are well connected to sources at Glastonbury but we will wait on official confirmation, which will hopefully come soon!


    Thanks to filiprasmusson for posting the article on our forums:


    "EVERY year the Glastonbury headliners guessing game starts earlier and earlier.


    But I can now tick off another of the three main acts for Worthy Farm next year — COLDPLAY.


    And they will make history in the process. The band, led by CHRIS MARTIN, will headline at the festival for a record FOURTH time after previously turning out in 2002, 2005 and 2011.


    They now lead VAN MORRISON, THE CURE and ELVIS COSTELLO who each boast three headline appearances.


    ARCTIC MONKEYS, BLUR, OASIS and DAVID BOWIE have two apiece. Coldplay will bring the 2016 Glasto weekend to a close with a Sunday night Pyramid Stage set including songs from new album A Head Full Of Dreams and their back catalogue.


    I’m told festival organiser MICHAEL EAVIS had the Coldplay deal done for some time but plans for their live show are already starting to come together, even with eight months to go.


    A source close to the band said: “Michael likes getting things sorted as early as possible and having a solid, reliable Sunday headline act to send people home happy is a massive part of the booking process.


    “Coldplay are Glastonbury veterans and will have no problem filling a two-hour set that punters will love.”


    That now means two of the three headliners for next year’s festival — the last before it takes its customary fallow year to let the ground recover — have been announced.


    After last year’s festival, boss’s daughter Emily Eavis, who will take over the show when he eventually retires, said they had already tied up 2016’s top acts.


    She said: “We’ve got three headliners for next year, so that’s completely sorted. We’re in a really good position in that respect because it means we can now focus on the rest of the bill.”


    The only matter remaining is who takes the hallowed Saturday night slot. My money’s on ADELE."
