Glastonbury Festival tickets sold out in just over half an hour and - as always - the bookies have announced their favourites to headline the Worthy Farm bash.

Last month, Ladbrokes said Foo Fighters were the favourites, closely followed by Adele and Coldplay. Now, William Hill have revealed who they believe to be taking the top spot on the bill. To absolutely no one’s surprise, it’s Coldplay.

Chris Martin’s band have headlined the festival three times prior - in 2002, 2005 and 2011 - and are currently working on their seventh album, A Head Full of Dreams.

"Coldplay could make a welcome return to the Pyramid stage this year and that will no doubt cheer the masses as they wait and refresh their computers on Sunday morning in the race to bag some Glastonbury tickets," William Hill spokesman Joe Crilly told NME.

Coming in just behind the ‘Yellow’ hitmakers is Adele, and then Foo Fighters. Dave Grohl and his motley crew were booked to headline last year’s festival but dropped out after Grohl broke his leg.

Here is William Hill’s list in full.

Coldplay – 4/1

Adele – 5/1

Foo Fighters – 6/1

Blur – 12/1

AC/DC – 14/1

Fleetwood Mac – 14/1

Muse – 14/1

Prince – 16/1

Ed Sheeran – 20/1

The Stone Roses – 20/1

Bloc Party – 25/1

Daft Punk – 25/1

Oasis – 25/1

Green Day – 33/1

Kate Bush – 33/1

Noel Gallagher’s High Flying Birds – 33/1

Radiohead – 33/1

The Rolling Stones – 40/1
