International Acoustic star, Ed Sheeran has debunked rumours of Taylor Swift performing at Glastonbury Festival 2015.
The world-famous singer-songwriter is a close friend of the country star and claims there is no chance that she will play:
“I’d bet you a large amount of money she doesn’t – a large amount of money. Taylor doesn’t like festivals.
“With Glastonbury or any festival, you’re at the mercy of the people who run the festival. She wants it all to be perfect”.
Swift was rumoured after the success of Dolly Parton’s set at Glastonbury Festival 2014 and organiser Michael Eavis revealing he’d like her at next year’s bash.
Glastonbury Festival 2015 takes place on June 24th – 28th 2015. Tickets are currently sold out but a re-sale is anticipated in Spring.
Dolly Parton’s performance at this year’s Glasotnbury Festival been named the best pop moment of 2014.
Despite rumours that the Country legend may have mimed her set, her performance beat Fleetwood Mac’s Reunion to the number one spot in a survey completed by 2000 people.
Performances from Kate Bush, Beyonce and the 2014 Band Aid also made it on to the list but could not beat the queen of country to the number one spot.

The Australian rockers were recently interviewed on BBC 6 Music.
“I don’t know if there’s rock and roll there, is there [at Glastonbury]? I don’t know, please don’t ask me, I’m really not up on it. I thought it was wellies and corporate, I don’t know,” said singer Brian Johnson.
Legendary soul singer, Lionel Richie has confirmed he will perform at Glastonbury Festival 2015.
“I’m really excited to play Glastonbury next year as it’s one of the most iconic festivals in the world,” he said.
“It has a phenomenal history and the alumni of artists who have previously played is incredible so I’m honoured to be joining that club. It will be a really special moment for me and I can’t wait to share it with everyone. I can now say ‘Yes, I’m playing Glastonbury.’”
Lionel becomes one of the first acts to confirm a slot at next summer’s bash along with Manchester Duo Twin Hidden.
British rockers, The Libertines have joined the rumours list for Glastonbury Festival 2015, with sources claiming the band will headline either the Pyramid or the Other stage.
An unnamed source of The Sun newspaper (questionable!) said: “The Libertines have been on Glastonbury’s wish list for ages but shot straight to the top when they saw the appetite for them.
“They are still deciding if the band will headline the Pyramid or the Other Stage.”
Our advice on this one is not to get too excited, but after the reform, it certainly looks like a possibility.
Glastonbury will take place next year between 24th – 28th June 2015. So far no acts have been officially confirmed by organisers although the has been one self-confirmation.
