THE KILLERS NAMED AS GLASTONBURY HEADLINERS
The Killers will be headlining this year's Glastonbury festival, Q can exclusively reveal. They join the Arctic Monkeys and The Who as the Main Stage headliners.
"We're really chuffed that we've got The Killers," Emily Eavis tells Q. "They broke through on the New Band stage in 2004 and came back the following year on the Main Stage, so they've come up through the festival. They're the right band to headline this year's festival."
The Who's guitarist Pete Townshend confirmed that the veteran British band will be playing their first Glastonbury this year. They close the festival on Sunday night.
"This chapter of the band is over in July 2007, so if you want to catch the new Who at their most effective for 20 years, come and join us," says Townshend.
In addition to Björk's headlining appearance on The Other Stage, also strongly rumoured to be performing at this year's festival are: Lily Allen, Arcade Fire, Babyshambles, Bloc Party, The Chemical Brothers, the reformed Creedence Clearwater Revival, Daft Punk, Editors, The Fratellis, Happy Mondays, Hot Chip, Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian, The Klaxons, The Kooks, Larrikin Love, The Magic Numbers, Paolo Nutini, Scissor Sisters, Super Furry Animals, The Twang and The View.
As always, the full OFFICIAL Glastonbury line-up will be revealed by Q on 1 June.
