Foo Fighters – Glastonbury should “give us a call”

Legendary Foo Fighters front man Dave Grohl has stated that if Glastonbury want them at next year’s bash, they should “give us a call.”

When questioned about a Glastonbury slot in a recent interview, the Ex-Nirvana drummer said, “I mean, it’s an iconic festival.

“I just tell everyone if they need a band, we’re pretty good. They should give us a call. See what happens.”

Eavis sparked rumours of Oasis and Taylor Swift earlier this week when he revealed he would like to see both perform at the festival.

AC/DC and Fleetwood Mac have dominated the rumour list so far this year but both are starting to look unlikely.

AC/DC drummer Phil Rudd has recently been charged with attempting to procure murder, putting their chances of a slot in jeopardy and Eavis dismissed rumours of Fleetwood Mac performing in a recent interview.

Eavis wants Oasis and Swift at Glastonbury 2015

Michael Eavis has revealed that he would like to have both Oasis and Taylor Swift at Glastonbury Festival 2015.

Speaking directly after receiving his award for his outstanding contribution to live music in the UK, the Glastonbury legend said: “I do talk to Noel and Liam a lot. Wouldn’t it be marvellous for them to relaunch at Glastonbury, now Liam has split from Beady Eye?”

Rumours have also been circulating about Taylor Swift taking a slot following the confirmation of a short tour in the UK next summer.

“Taylor Swift would be great to follow the Dolly Parton slot – especially being a country singer,” Eavis added.

And finally, despite strong rumours of Fleetwood Mac making an appearance, the Glastonbury boss is still standing by his guns: “No, Fleetwood Mac isn’t looking good at the moment. I’m afraid not.”

Glastonbury chief Michael Eavis honoured

Glastonbury Festival chief, Michael Eavis has been honoured at a high-profile award ceremony.

The 79 year-old, who started the world-famous festival back in 1970 was given an award for his “outstanding contribution to live music in the UK“.

“After crawling through a hole in the hedge to take a peep at Freddie Bannister’s Bath Blues Festival in 1970, I can’t believe that 44 years of semi-controlled chaos has led to me receiving this prestigious award. Thank you all so much,” he said.

Glastonbury, which is now one of the biggest festivals in the world, attracts over 100,000 revellers each year and boasts a start-studded line-up.

This year acts such as AC/DC, Fleetwood Mac and more recently Taylor Swift have been rumoured to make a performance at the 2015 bash.

October rumours round-up for Glastonbury Festival 2015

With tickets for Glastonbury Festival 2015 as good as sold out, attention now turns to the line-up and acts that are rumoured to play. Here’s a round-up of some of the headlines circling the web at the moment.

Headliners booked

Its been quiet on the rumours front so far this year, however Michael Eavis has confirmed that the three headliners have already been signed. So far he has given no indication to who they are.

AC/DC to take a slot?

Rock legends, AC/DC have confirmed a new tour and album and are strongly rumoured to take a slot after Eavis confirmed he booked a band whist watching Metallica. Metallica and AC/DC have the same agent…

Fleetwood Mac & Queen both on the bookies cards

Oh the irony! Rumours of Fleetwood Mac taking a slot have been all over the net since day one, so there’s a good chance they’ll be performing. Along with them is a small band you may have heard of called Queen:

“There are some massive names in the frame but the money suggests Fleetwood Mac are the most likely, although today’s gamble has been for Queen,” said William Hill spokesman Rupert Adams.

Prince to finally perform this year?

According to Eavis, Prince is always a target for Glastonbury and this year is no exception. “We’re always having a go at Prince, but it’s up to him whether he wants to do it or not.”

A few more acts on the rumours list include:

Foo Fighters, Muse Fatboy Slim and Calvin Harris.
