Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis has dismissed rumours suggesting Fleetwood Mac will be among the headliners of the iconic British festival next year (14), insisting they are more likely to sign on for 2015.
The reunited Dreams hitmakers became strong favourites to land a top slot at the summer 2014 bash after Eavis teased fans in September (13) by stating he was on the verge of signing three main headline acts who have not previously performed at the event.
Drummer Mick Fleetwood then appeared to drop a big hint indicating that Fleetwood Mac were in the frame for a Glastonbury gig, stating, "I don't know. They've probably got fed up of asking us. We were asked to do Glastonbury this year (13) and hopefully they'll ask us again."
However, Eavis insists the veteran rockers will not be a part of the next three-day festival - he's hoping they will be free the following year instead.
He tells Britain's The Guardian newspaper, "We're hoping to get them for 2015, but not next year."
Country superstar Dolly Parton is reported to be one of the big acts to grace the Glastonbury stage in Somerset, England in June (14), while Madonna and Prince have also been mentioned among possible headliners.
Fleetwood Mac's tour plans hit a snag earlier this year (13) when it was revealed bassist John McVie had been diagnosed with cancer, resulting in the band scrapping a scheduled trek in Australia and New Zealand this autumn (13).
