Fans want Oasis to headline Glastonbury 2015
NME readers have voted for Oasis as the band they would most like to see headline Glastonbury next year (2015).
Readers have been voting for the artists they would most like to see top the bill at next year's event following this year's festival, which brought performances from Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian.
Despite the fact that Oasis are technically not together at the moment, the constant rumours about Noel and Liam Gallagher's reunion are clearly giving fans hope that a performance on the Pyramid Stage could be a possibility. Closely following the Manchester band on the list of acts who NME.com users would like to play next year is David Bowie while Foo Fighters, Muse and Fleetwood Mac all ranked highly.
On Sunday morning (June 29), Glastonbury founder Eavis revealed that three headliners have already been booked for next year's festival – and they don't include the long-rumoured Prince.
"We've got three headliners already – and that's without Prince. We've got some good headliners. We had an agent [for a band] yesterday on the platform by the stage watching Metallica with me, saying, 'My band want to do it next year'. I can't tell you who it was but that was done on the platform watching Metallica. Is it a British artist? He's definitely British, but the band are not British any more."
Iron Maiden have emerged as bookmaker William Hill's front-runners to headline Glastonbury 2015. Following Metallica's warm reception at the festival, the bookmaker has slashed Iron Maiden's odds of performing next year to 7/1.
Among the other acts with good odds are Kate Bush (8/1), whose first live dates in 35 years recently sold out, Oasis (8/1), Coldplay (10/1), Noel Gallagher (10/1) and U2 (10/1)
