Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis has rebuked what she calls ‘nonsense’ reports during the past few days which have linked the likes of Prince and Mariah Carey with headline spots at the already sold-out festival in June.
Yesterday, US popstar Mariah Carey became the latest to be mentioned in dispatches for a performance on the Pyramid Stage this year, with a ‘source’ apparently telling the London Evening Standard that: “Nothing has been signed yet, but discussions have been opened and both parties seem keen.”
And with the annual Prince rumours also rearing their heads this week, Emily Eavis has taken to Twitter to pour cold water on the whispers, and promised festival-goers ‘real’ news is due shortly:
“Three nonsense headliner stories in a week, all completely untrue…Real news will be with you soon!.”
The Arctic Monkeys are strongly tipped to be topping the bill on the Friday night, while The Rolling Stones, Mumford & Sons and Lady Gaga remain likely candidates for the other two headline places.
