The Mail On Sunday reported that Dua Lipa would headline on Friday while Coldplay – who have headlined four times previously – would take the Saturday slow, with Madonna, who is currently on her massive The Celebration Tour, closing the festival on Sunday.
However, this morning (5 November), festival organiser Emily Eavis has taken to her Instagram to deny the reports, writing, “As always, there is much speculation and excitement about who is playing at Glastonbury. We are working on the line-up day and night at the moment, but it’s still changing every day.
“The story about our confirmed headliners is untrue. As always, we love your enthusiasm and guesswork – but accurate news on headliners will be with you sometime in the new year!”
Last month Eavis told Annie Mac and Nick Grimshaw’s Sidetracked podcast the ‘legend’ slot on Sunday afternoon would be a female artist.
Addressing last year’s lack of female headliners, she added: “I’ve always been really passionate about gender split [on festival line-ups] and I think, actually, our problem was that I’d been so outspoken about it that having a year when there wasn’t a female sent people a bit mad – or some people.
“And we did have a female – she pulled out and we replaced them with Guns N’ Roses. But everyone knows that it’s top of my list.
“It is difficult with female artists because there aren’t enough headliners. But we’re also creating them.
“We’re putting the bands and female artists on smaller stages and bringing them through all the time. And who knows? Next year we might get two. And certainly, I can say that the legend is female.”
