2018 is a sad year for Glasto goers, as Worthy Farm's gates are kept firmly shut for the festival's traditional fallow year. But while the grounds, locals and organisers are quietly recovering from the yearly party, the rumour mill has been hard at work trying to figure out who could be headlining when Glastonbury returns next year.

With the dates already confirmed, what we do know for sure is that it will take place between Wednesday 26th and Sunday 30th June  2019, but the team over at Paddy Power have given us more to go off. Currently the bookies' favourites to be confirmed are Kendrick Lamar, who headlined this year's Coachella, the one and only Elton John and Fleetwood Mac, who are well overdue a slot, but after failed negotiations have never been able to agree a fee.

Michael Eavis has also confirmed that some of the biggest acts have never played the festival before, which could include The Stone Roses, who were meant to perform in 1995 but were replaced last minute with Pulp.

Other names that have been rumoured include Liam Gallagher - watch him perform last year above, Spice Girls (we are fully backing this one!) as well as The Beach Boys, and with Emily Eavis revealing earlier this year that one headliner has in face already been booked, more news is expected soon.

Paddy Power’s Glastonbury 2019 headliner odds:

Kendrick Lamar – 1/5

Elton John – 1/2

Fleetwood Mac – 2/1

ABBA – 5/1

Arctic Monkeys – 4/1

The Stone Roses – 12/1

Taylor Swift – 12/1

The Strokes – 14/1

Led Zeppelin – 14/1
