Although the Glastonbury Festival took a break this year to give way to the 2012 Olympics, things are underway for Glastonbury 2013 and who might land in the lineup. Festival organizer Michael Eavis is excited about the first year of not being tied to a partnership with Festival Republic, which leaves he and his daughter Emily able to make decisions free of their partnership with FR. The first 2013 lineup hint: A Glastonbury 2013 headliner could be The Stone Roses. We all know it would have been likely this year had Glasto taken place, but 2013 could be just as good as 2012.
"I'm very keen on The Stone Roses – I always have been. They played at Pilton Party for 300 people in 1995, which is the year they cancelled on the main event and Pulp stepped in to replace them. I would like them to come back at some point. Are they a possible headliner for next year? I think it is possible, yeah," said Michael Eavis when speaking to NME from the Sziget Festival in Hungary. Eavis has been known to drop hints in the past. As for Glastonbury 2013 rumors, start guessing. There's already acts set for the 2013 Glastonbury lineup: "We've already got some acts confirmed, but I can't say who they are. There’s not a shadow of a doubt – it will be the best festival we've ever done."
Now that the Glastonbury Festival is back in Michael and Emily's hands, change is the order of the day. "We've actually changed the structure quite a bit, the management. We're managing the licensing, the health and safety now ourselves, which means we're back driving the train again. We'll be back to how we were before the problems we had in the year 2000. We're venturing into a new era now and it's very exciting. Will there be more of a sense of freedom? You bet there will be."
