Bookmakers Ladbrokes have suspended betting on Fleetwood Mac headlining next year’s Glastonbury festival.
1/4 was the best price available on the recently reunited US veterans performing at Worthy Farm in June 2014, but after a period of increased speculation since the event sold out earlier this week, Ladbrokes has now seemingly stopped taking bets on one of the three Pyramid Stage toppers being Stevie Nicks and co. Daft Punk and Depeche Mode remain hotly tipped to join Fleetwood Mac with odds of 6/4.
Despite organiser Michael Eavis revealing that his three headliners for 2014 have never played the festival before, David Bowie – a past headliner on two separate occasions – is still being offered at 3/1 while Oasis, another two-time main act and seemingly even more unlikely when Noel Gallagher‘s constant denial of weekly reunion rumours are taken into account with Eavis’ comments, are nevertheless 4/1 to perform.
Over one million people were reported to have registered for Glastonbury in time for the general sale last Sunday (October 6th). In the end, well over 100,000 tickets were snapped up precisely one hour and 27 minutes after going onsale – a record for the event.
