Glastonbury 2007 Headliners Take Shape

GLASTONBURY (CelebrityAccess MediaWire) — Next year's Glastonbury Festival is already starting to take shape, with organisers close to confirming the event's three headliners.

Next year's bash could be led by a mix of pop heavyweights, crowd favourites and an international legend as Glastonbury looks to reclaim its summer crown following a year off.

According to well-placed sources The Killers look set to move up from playing before the White Stripes at the 2005 festival to headlining the Pyramid Stage in their own right on next year's opening night.

Meanwhile giving next year's festival an American twist, Bruce Springsteen is being lined up to close the Saturday night.

Glastonbury organisers have stated "the headliners for Glastonbury next year have not been decided", but festival chief Michael Eavis has admitted he is currently finalising the acts who will top the bill.

"We're creeping on slowly, I'm chipping away at the stuff that we want, and they've all said yes so far, we have options for Saturday at the moment, and we'll make a decision on that soon. I like to get British if I can, there's an American artist in the frame for that slot too."

One act Eavis was prepared to name was his Sunday headliner, with the festival organiser restating his intention to have Kylie Minogue play the slot she was forced to miss in 2005 after being diagnosed with breast cancer.

"Kylie's on Sunday night, I'm sure," declared Eavis. "If she can do the Showgirl tour, that would be terrific – very theatrical, very Glastonbury. That's going to be great. She looks good, that's going to be a big moment. If she does the whole show, I'll be delighted."
