The apparent scoop on the site Holy Moly comes days after Coldplay were confirmed as the Saturday headliner. U2 are rumoured to be playing Friday and Beyoncé on Sunday.
Holy Moly said, "How do we know? Secrets. We thrive on them. In fact we actually lost a couple of our best informants simply bringing this news to you. They're not dead though, we just stopped answering their calls."
As ever, the festival's organisers are keeping schtum. A spokesperson for the festival refused to confirm or deny the claims, saying an official announcement would be made "in due course" -- the Glastonbury web site says the line-up will be revealed in the spring.
Speculation over who will headline Glastonbury 2011 began almost as soon as last year's event finished, as Spinner as reported, especially since U2 were forced to cancel their own 2010 appearance. Suggestions have appeared over recent days that Coldplay, headliners themselves back in 2005, are on board for Saturday night, though the mention of Beyoncé on the bill is at least fairly original.
