Chris Martin Coldplay

Glastonbury founder Michael Eavis got a fittingly high-profile label of musical entertainment for his 80th birthday celebration, with Coldplay man Chris Martin and Lily Allen using the starring roles.

Lily Allen is really a regular with the festival, having appeared on stage with Rudimental this coming year, while Coldplay headlined Glastonbury in 2002, 2005 and 2011, and so are rumoured being returning in 2016, too.

The Bristol Post reported within the event, also commenting for the extravagant, Glastonbury-themed cake Eavis was assigned.

Friends on the Eavis family had previously asserted Michael had “organised this party for his birthday. They’ll be a little music, a little dancing and a little bit of food.”

Glastonbury tickets had sell outs in less than 30 minutes despite server difficulties if they went on sale on October 14, though as usual, there is certainly likely for being a small resale after ticketholders be worthwhile their balance in their tickets three months before the festival.

Michael Eavis has denied rumours that Miley Cyrus will headline in 2016, though they have confirmed that headliners are actually booked for two years already.

Florence And The Machine, Kanye West and The Who headlined the 2015 event, with Florence replacing the Foo Fighters, have been forced to grab at late notice after Dave Grohl broke his leg performing in Sweden.

The 2016 event can take place at its usual home in Pilton, from June 22-26.
