Michael Eavis has already booked next year's Glastonbury headliners.

The 78-year-old festival promoter has closed deals with three big acts for next year's event, including a non-British band whose manager signed a contract while watching Metallica headline this year's Glastonbury on Saturday night (28.06.14).

However, Michael denied the foreign act is music icon Prince, but he is eager to have the 56-year-old star headline in future.

He said: ''We're always having a go at Prince. Most of the people in the world want to play here, so I did ask him to hop on the train and come down to Castle Cary station and I'll show him around the farm some time. It hasn't been taken up yet though.''

Michael, who organises the festival with his daughter Emily Eavis, thinks the music event has ''still got a few years in it'' but admits he may bow out of running it in 2020 - which marks Glastonbury's 50th anniversary.

He is quoted by The Guardian newspaper as saying: ''I think I can run on another six years, which would take me up to 50 years, then [I'll] see what happens after that.''

This year's Glastonbury festival drew more than 100,000 revellers who flocked to see headliners Metallica, Kasabian and Arcade Fire, as well as other big acts such as Dolly Parton, Ed Sheeran and Lana Del Rey.
