AC/DC have jokingly confirmed that if asked, they will take a headline slot at Glastonbury Festival 2015.
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.

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.
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 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.
