Courteeners respond to Glastonbury Festival headline speculation

The Courteeners have responded to comments made by Emily Eavis, suggesting the band could one day headline Glastonbury Festival.

In a recent interview with music magazine NME, Emily Eavis named the band as one that could top the bill in coming years.

“The Courteeners are massive too! I mean massive! They’ve sold out The Etihad (Emirates) Old Trafford in Manchester, which is huge,” she said.

In a separate interview, Front-man Liam Fray responded to Emily’s revelation saying, “It blew my mind, I was loving it. It’s weird, because when you think about it, why not? I guess the only issue would be, for us, is would we have enough songs that everybody knew?

“…But we’d love to do it in the future. Why not? F*ck it.”

This year Glastonbury Festival is headlined by Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran. Tickets are currently sold out with a re-sale happening towards the end of April.
