Michael Eavis - Michael Eavis: Oasis not considered for Glastonbury

Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis insists he never considered asking Oasis to headline this year's festival.

The band - who split in 2009 after brothers Liam and Noel Gallagher fell out - were rumoured to be playing the event at Worthy Farm in June after Liam teased fans on Twitter, individually spelling out the letters of the band's name, followed by the post: ''OASIS LG''.

Michael told the Bristol Post newspaper: ''The Oasis thing had nothing to do with us, we hadn't even considered asking them. They've played at the festival three or four times and they're a great band.

''They were not that well known the first time they played here but they were a great band even then. I'm not sure that Noel is ready to go back on the road with Oasis because he has his own band [High Flying Birds] at the moment.

''I think if it were to happen and they did come back to Glastonbury it would probably be in four or five years time - I can't see it happening before then.''

Meanwhile, the festival organiser claims the Saturday headliner, who will join Arcade Fire and Kasabian, will be ''one of the biggest-selling bands in the world'', ruling out Prince playing the event in Surrey.

He added: ''We are expecting to announce the full line-up at the beginning of May and everything is now in place. We are more than happy with the calibre of the acts and the headliner on Saturday will be one of the biggest-selling bands in the world at the moment.''
