Chris Martin Coldplay

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis got a fittingly high-profile model of musical entertainment for his 80th celebration, with Coldplay man Chris Martin and Lily Allen utilizing the starring roles.

Lily Allen is really a regular on the festival, having appeared on stage with Rudimental this season, while Coldplay headlined Glastonbury in 2002, 2005 and 2011, and so are rumoured to get returning in 2016, too.

The Bristol Post reported for the event, also commenting for the extravagant, Glastonbury-themed cake Eavis was offered.

Friends on the Eavis family had previously asserted Michael had “organised this party for his birthday. They’ll be some music, a little bit of dancing and a little food.”

Glastonbury tickets out of stock in less than a half-hour despite server difficulties after they went on sale on October 14, though as usual, there may be likely to get a small resale after ticketholders settle their balance in their tickets 3-4 months before the festival.

A Sky Full of Stars

Michael Eavis has recently denied rumours that Miley Cyrus will headline in 2016, though he’s got confirmed that headliners have already been booked for an additional two years already.

Florence And The Machine, Kanye West and The Who headlined the 2015 event, with Florence replacing the Foo Fighters, who had been forced to take out at late notice after Dave Grohl broke his leg performing in Sweden.

The 2016 event can take place at its usual home in Pilton, from June 22-26.
