There’s nothing we like more here at Rock My World than a little flutter, especially when it comes to anything to do with music. We’ve just got word that UK bookies, William Hill, have tipped Coldplay as favourites to headline Glastonbury 2016.
As the first allocation of tickets to the festival disapeared in 15 minutes, Chris Martin and his band mates have been given the nod as potential headliners for the Pyramid stage.
UK based William Hill has given the huge rock band odds of 4/1 to headline. Coldplay, who is currently working away at its seventh album called A Head Full of Dreams has been down this road before, and has headlined the festival three previous times: first in 2002, then in 2005 and 2011.
William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said in NME “Coldplay could make a welcome return to the Pyramid stage this year and that will no doubt cheer the masses as they wait and refresh their computers on Sunday morning in the race to bag some Glastonbury tickets.”
Michael Eavis, known as the Glastonbury Festival godfather, has previously claimed that headliners have been booked in advance for the next two years of the widely anticipated farm event. And as it stands, Foo Fighters is currently at 6/1, in spite of Michael Eavis’s youngest daughter, Emily’s denial that the rock band would perform its previously cancelled headline set. Superstar Adele is at 5/1 odds.
Glastonbury 2016 will take place at Worthy Farm in Somerset from 22–26 June. Standard tickets will be available from 4 October.
