Kasabian's lead singer Tom Meighan reveals the band's Glastonbury dreams and up and coming music projects
Kasabian would love to play Glastonbury next year.
The `Fire' hitmakers had such a good time performing at last year's event that they are hoping to be asked to top the bill at the world-famous music festival - which takes place in Worthy Farm, Somerset, South England, every June - in 2011.
Singer Tom Meighan said: I remember the sun going down and I had straw jacket on and long hair blowing everywhere all these flags - it was wonderful.
"Last year was amazing so hopefully we'll be about next year and play it."
The group were one of many names linked to replacing U2 - who were forced to pull out of this year's Glastonbury after singer Bono suffered a spinal injury - but insist they were never asked, though they imagine the Irish rockers will be upset about being unable to play.
He added to BANG Showbiz: "It's sad about Bono because he'll be distraught."
Following their festival commitments this summer, Kasabian are planning to go back to the recording studio, but are keeping tight-lipped about who they will be working with on the follow-up to their 2009 LP `West Ryder Pauper Lunatics Asylum'.
He said:" We've got a record coming. We're going to start recording it in the winter, in October. I can't give you any names - I can't say anything."
