As the first batch of tickets to Glastonbury 2016 sell out in 15 minutes, bookies have revealed that Coldplay are favourites to headline next year’s festival.
William Hill have given the indie band odds of 4/1 to headline the Pyramid Stage. The band, who are currently working on their seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams, have headlined the festival three previous times: first in 2002, then in 2005 and 2011.
“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,” William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly said in NME.
Michael Eavis has previously claimed that headliners have been booked in advance for the next two years of the Worthy Farm event. Foo Fighters are currently at 6/1, in spite of Emily Eavis’ denial that the rock band would perform their previously cancelled headline set, while Adele is at 5/1.
Glastonbury 2016 will take place at Worthy Farm from 22–26 June. Standard tickets will be available from 4 October.
