Michael Eavis: Headliners booked for Glastonbury 2015

The organiser of Glastonbury has hailed this year's festival as a "great success" and said he already has next year's headliners sorted.

Farmer Michael Eavis said: "Myself, I think I can run another six years, which would take me up to about 50 years.. and then see what happens after that."

Mr Eavis said he remained hopeful that Prince would one day play. "We're always having a go at Prince, but you know it's up to him whether he wants to do it or not.

"Most of the people in the world want to play here so I did ask him to hop on the train and come down to Castle Cary station and I'll show him around the farm some time.

"It hasn't been taken up yet though."

He went on: "We've got three headliners for next year already. And that's without Prince.
