Glastonbury are close to signing the coveted band Fleetwood Mac to the 2016 festival line-up.
Fleetwood Mac are ''highly likely'' to headline Glastonbury 2016.
The 'Go Your Own Way' hitmakers - who topped the bill at the Isle of Wight Festival last year - are reportedly close to signing up to perform at the world Michael Eavis' iconic festival on Worthy Farm in Somerset, South West England.
A source told the Daily Mirror newspaper: ''Glastonbury was always on the cards and they wanted to do it last year but they couldn't because of the deal they have signed with Isle of Wight organisers. Now they are free of that they can do what they want.''
And it was IOW boss John Giddings who reminded Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis that money talks, when he revealed he had to splash the cash to secure Fleetwood Mac - comprised of Mick Fleetwood, Stevie Nicks, John McVie, Christine McVie and Lindsey Buckingham - last year.
Giddings revealed: ''Michael Eavis said, 'How did you get Fleetwood Mac?' I said, 'I paid them!'
He went on: ''Glastonbury are in a privileged position whereby they sell out in advance. They could book my granny and still have a festival. The rest of us are still in the realms of having to book a decent line-up and make it attractive to people and make them want to come.''
Meanwhile, Coldplay are being hotly tipped to become record makers in 2016 and become the first ever act to headline Glastonbury four times.
The band - fronted by Chris Martin - previously closed the Pyramid Stage in 2002, 2005 and 2011.
