Kate Bush and Oasis are also rumoured with odds of 8/1, while Radiohead, U2, Coldplay, The Stone Roses, Elton John, Foo Fighters, Prince, The Libertines and Iron Maiden all feature further down the list.

Outside bets include David Bowie, Red Hot Chili Peppers and Arctic Monkeys at 20/1 and Adele and Robert Plant at 25/1.

Ladbrokes have also named Fleetwood Mac their favourites with evens odds, while Paul McCartney, Prince and Morrissey are their next top tips. Take That and One Direction are outside bets to perform at 33/1.

Today is the final day of online registration for eligibility to buy tickets on 5 October. Only those who have registered in advance with photo ID and contact details will be able to make purchases.

Festival-goers will need to pay a £50 deposit per person at glastonbury.seetickets.com, with the full price for 2015 set at £220.

Last year’s Glastonbury was headlined by Arcade Fire, Kasabian and Metallica. As for this year, organiser Michael Eavis has hinted that a huge US band who have never played the festival before are in talks, leading many to suspect Fleetwood Mac.
