'Leaked' Glastonbury line-up is 'fake news', says Eavis

A supposed line-up for this year's Glastonbury has been dismissed as "fake news" by the festival's organiser.

Fan-run website Clashfinder claimed at the weekend that Craig David, Elbow, Alt-J, Jamiroquai and Stormzy would be among those at the June event.

It said Ed Sheeran would be headlining the Pyramid Stage on Sunday and Diana Ross would sing in the "legends" slot on Sunday afternoon.

But Emily Eavis, the daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis, denied the claims.

She wrote on Twitter: "Don't believe everything you read, our line-up has not been leaked.

"The actual line-up will be with you soon", adding the hashtag "fake news".

On Monday afternoon, some of the supposed line-up had changed and Ross' name no longer appeared.

So far, organisers have announced Foo Fighters and Radiohead as headliners, while singer-songwriter Kris Kristofferson has also self-confirmed.

This year's event, held between 21 and 25 June, is expected to attract around 170,000 people.
