Emily Eavis rules out Adele headlining this summer's Glastonbury Festival

Adele won't be headlining this summer's Glastonbury Festival, organiser Emily Eavis has confirmed. 

It had been reported earlier this week that the singer was in talks to headline the Worthy Farm festival, but Eavis has now told The Sun that this isn't the case. 

She said: "That's not true. That's the only denial I will do. I would love Adele. To have Adele would be a complete dream, but she's not going to be here this year."

Adele is currently working on the follow-up to her hugely successful second album 21, which you can preview on the right of the page. 

Earlier this week, Foo Fighters were confirmed to headline this summer's Glastonbury. 

The band, who had long been favourites to play the Worthy Farm festival, confirmed the news on Wednesday (February 18th) as they accepted the award for Best International Band at the NME Awards.

During his video acceptance speech, frontman Dave Grohl said that the group would be "seeing us soon at an outdoor festival", before coughing 'Glastonbury' under his breath.

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, with Florence and The Machine and Coldplay the favourites to headline the festival's other days. 

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