Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis thinks Led Zeppelin will reform again one day.

The music festival chief would like to see the classic rock band headline the event at Worthy Farm and is adamant they will get back together to take to the stage.

Asked if the group would ever reform, he told radio station Ireland AM: "That will happen one day - I'm sure of it. They will do it."

The band - made up of Robert Plant, Jimmy Page and John Paul Jones have turned down a number of offers and their last big show was at London's O2 Arena in December 2007, where they were joined by drummer Jason Bonham, son of the band's late John Bonham.

Michael also made a cryptic comment about an act who he would never invite back to play at Glastonbury again, although he only referred to them as a band from Manchester "who aren't famous any more ... they fell out".

Meanwhile, the team behind the festival have confirmed a number of acts who will play this year, including Lana Del Rey, Arcade Fire, Dolly Parton, Lily Allen, Disclosure, Blondie, The Black Keys and Warpaint.

They will release the full line-up for the event later this month.
