Glasto your own way

Sources close to the band said it was ‘highly likely’ the band would headline the iconic festival next year

Fleetwood back: Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham

Glastonbury organisers are in the final stages of signing Fleetwood Mac , we can reveal.

It comes after they headlined Isle Of Wight festival last year as a UK exclusive.

But now having kept that promise to Isle of Wight bosses, they are free to Go Their Own Way.

A festival source at Q tells us: “Glastonbury was always on the cards and they wanted to do it last year but they couldn’t because of the deal they have signed with Isle Of Wight organisers. Now they are free of that they can do what they want.”

It is not yet known how much Glastonbury mastermind Michael Eavis has offered the British-American rockers.

But it will be significantly less than what Isle Of Wight organiser John Giddings splashed out to get them last year.

Giddings said he managed to get the five stars – including Stevie Nicks and Lindsey Buckingham – by showing them the dollar.

Apparently Michael Eavis was blown away by their tactics. Giddings revealed: “Michael Eavis said, ‘How did you get Fleetwood Mac?’ I said, I paid them!”

He said he had to invest in a show-stopping headline act to fill the festival.

“Glastonbury are in a privileged position, whereby they sell out in advance,” he explained.

“They could book my granny and still have a festival.

“The rest of us are still in the realms of having to book a decent line-up and make it attractive to people and make them want to come.”

Other acts tipped to headline next year’s Somerset extravaganza include Coldplay and Adele.

Fleetwood have been on a multi-million-pound tour of the world and wrap it up in next month in New Zealand.

We just hope Mr Eavis can seal the deal. Don’t Stop hoping…
