A source told The Sun newspaper:

Muse are a Glastonbury no-brainer for a headline booking. They know what it takes to put on a huge show and there's no bigger stage than the Pyramid.

Matt and the boys have a huge back catalogue that will be brilliant for a Saturday night set.

This year's line-up is as rock and roll as the Eavises could have hoped for. They were keen to book the headliners early and they've done exactly that.

But the line up may not be completely set in stone, after Guns N'Roses were tipped as the bookies favourites to headline Reading and Leeds, calling into question whether they'll stop off at Glastonbury also.
