AC/DC and Taylor Swift now favourites to headline Glastonbury

AC/DC and Taylor Swift are now the bookies' favourites to headline this summer's Glastonbury Festival. 

According to bookmaker William Hill, AC/DC are the favourites to join Foo Fighters in headlining the Worthy Farm event with odds of 5/1, while Swift is now only 6/1 to top the bill. 

Slightly further back are Coldplay, who are 8/1, Elton John, who is 9/1, Muse, who are 10/1, and Paul McCartney, who is 12/1. Former favourite Florence And The Machine has switched back to 20/1, the same odds as Prince, Pharrell Williams and Madonna. 

Next summer's festival had previously only seen a handful of artists confirmed, with crooner Lionel Richie easily the most high-profile, he will also play the event on the final day.

Organiser Michael Eavis has already ruled out both Queen and Fleetwood Mac from headlining the event, while his daughter Emily has also ruled out Adele as a headliner. 

Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 24th to 28th next sumer.
