Michael Eavis, founder and curator of the legendary [almost-annual] Glastonbury Festival has dumfounded rumours by confirming iconic rock band Fleetwood Mac will not be making a much-hoped appearance at next year’s event.

Speaking to The Guardian, Eavis, who has a habit of slipping early details of performers, confirmed “We’re hoping to get them [Fleetwood Mac] for 2015, but not next year”.

The 3-day festival, which opens its gates on 25th June 2014, has already confirmed the Friday headliner, Arcade Fire, whilst Lily Allen and Stanton Warriors are amongst the first confirmed acts. Rumours have been rife that both Kings Of Leon and Dolly Parton are to play the coveted Saturday and Sunday slots, however its likely that we won’t be hearing of any more appearances until early next year.
