Meanwhile, it's also expected that Bee Gees legend Barry Gibb will perform with Coldplay when the band close the event on Sunday June 26.

A source previously revealed: "Chris Martin was delighted to be asked to headline again but told (festival boss) Michael (Eavis) he wanted to bring some friends along, too. Barry had already been asked to perform but didn't have time to perfect a full set with his touring band. As soon as Chris got wind he asked Barry if he wanted to come on stage with Coldplay. He agreed straight away.

"The band are putting a Bee Gees medley together cramming in all of their classics. It's going to be really special. There are likely to be a few other surprise guests on the night too, which are still to be decided."
