British rock trio reported to have signed a deal to be one of the three headline acts at Glastonbury 2016

They played Glastonbury’s Pyramid Stage in 2004 and 2010 and now according to reports, Matt Bellamy, Chris Wolstenholme and Dominic Howard could be set to repeat the trick at next year’s festival.

A source told British tabloid The Sun: “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.”

The source goes on to say: “This year’s line-up is as rock and roll as the Eavises [festival organisers Michael Eavis and daughter Emily] could have hoped for. They were keen to book the headliners early and they’ve done exactly that.”

The report states that Coldplay and Foo Fighters will occupy the other two headline slots. However Glastonbury booker Martin Elbourne spoke recently about the prospects of superstar Adele being one of the three headliners. Elbourne told Loaded: “Adele is in a situation in her career where frankly she can do whatever the hell she likes. Hopefully it will happen and it still needs to be confirmed. She’s not into festivals but obviously, every promoter in the world wants to get her so fingers crossed, we are hoping it’s going to happen.”
