Glastonbury 2016 acts already 'booked up'

Emily Eavis claims Glastonbury's 2016 headliners are "pretty much booked up".

The co-organiser of the festival has revealed they are well on the way to completing the line-up for the annual event next year, despite the fact the 2015 edition has not yet happened.

She said: "We've been getting calls about next year's bands and in particular the headline slots. As there's only three headliners on the Pyramid Stage, we're pretty much booked up for next year.

"I think people start booking [festival acts] really early these days. Festivals are so much beyond the main stages, but we work on [the bookings] all year, always coming up with new ideas and ways to make it better."

The news comes a day after the full line-up and stage times were announced for the festival in the west of England - which will run from 24 - 28 June - which will be headlined by Foo Fighters, Kanye West and The Who.

And although some festival-goers have complained about some of their favourite artists clashing at the event, Emily said they tried their best not to disappoint but it's "always hard" to please everyone.

Speaking to Lauren Laverne on BBC 6 Music, Emily said: "We're always making sure things don't clash. We're trying to tweak things so things with similar audiences don't clash too much. But obviously on this scale it's always hard to get things perfectly plain sailing."
