Organisers ‘trying their best’ to secure The Rolling Stones for Glastonbury


Glastonbury co-organiser Emily Eavis has said she and her father Michael will ‘try their best’ to secure the coveted booking of The Rolling Stones for the festival next year.

“We’d obviously like that to happen, we’ve always been quite open about that, whether or not it does, I cannot say,” she said when quizzed on the possibility by NME.

Stones guitarist Keith Richards dramatically increased the likelihood of a first headline appearance at Worthy Farm for the legendary band earlier this week after declaring the potential booking as an ‘interesting proposition‘, and Emily Eavis has said it feels right to have them at Glastonbury next year.

“I could not tell you now whether it’s going to happen,” she continued. “But we would love it to happen next year, we feel like if it’s going to happen, it’s got to happen next year. So, you know, we’d love for it to happen, so we’ll try our best – I’ll let you know how we get on.”
