The fate of your next two Glastonbury festivals is sealed, with founder Michael Eavis revealing that he has booked six headliners.

Eavis and his daughter Emily have been busy deciding which acts will top the bill on the iconic Pyramid Stage and have completed the job for both 2016 and 2017.

BBC Radio 1 teased some details out of Eavis at the Association of Independent Music Awards on Tuesday night and discovered that two of the artists or bands are new to Glastonbury and four are returning to the line-up's top spot.



Foo Fighters are favourites to headline next year's festival after they had to pull out of the 2015 event when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.


Other rumoured acts include Fleetwood Mac, Oasis, Muse, Elton John, Adele, Prince and even controversial pop singer Miley Cyrus.
