2013 headline acts sorted
Michael Eavis has finally spoken about his plans for next year's Glastonbury Festival, which is expected to be one of the biggest in its entire history.

The founder of the longstanding festival revealed that some of the headline acts had been confirmed, which has got music fans and industry insiders speculating to their heart's content.

Speaking to BBC Radio 1 Newsbeat, the 76-year-old would like the festival to at least continue until 2020, when it will mark its 50th anniversary.

"I'm really determined somehow or other to make the 50 years - I don't see why I shouldn't make it," he said.

"Strangely enough, I do feel incredibly fit. I don't see why I shouldn't make it. I've got the bands who want to play and the people who want to buy the tickets so why shouldn't we carry on?"

Glastonbury Festival is not taking place this year, which is not atypical – it's part of the normal cycle of things, allowing for the land to fully recover.

Last year saw Beyonce, Coldplay and U2 headline.
