Next Stop For The Stone Roses: Glastonbury 2013
Festival boss Michael Eavis has admitted to NME that after watching the band perform at Hungary's Sziget festival last Friday (August 10th), he has his sights set firmly on the band to be potential headliners at next years event. He told the magazine "Are they a possible headliner for next year? I think it is possible, yeah." Other than the Roses, Eavis remained tight-lipped about anyone else potentially filling the bill, although he did reveal that some names have been confirmed already.
Eavis was also on hand to discuss what changes the festival will be under next year, following it's yearlong break after choosing not to hold the festival this year. The biggest and probably most significant change is that those at Worthy Farm have taken back the reigns from Festival Republic, meaning that the whole thing will be run and organised by Glasto officials and no outsider interference. Eavis was quick to answer his own question again, saying, "Will there be more of a sense of freedom? You bet there will be." The Stone Roses were due to headline the festival back in 1995, however they split shortly before the show, prompting Pulp to take their place and save the day.
