The festival organiser has revealed the two remaining headliners have never played the festival before, and confirmed one is female while the other is male.

Emily Eavis has shared two huge clues about the remaining headliners for Glastonbury Festival, leading to more speculation over who will headline the Pyramid Stage.

Speaking to the BBC, the festival organiser revealed: "Interestingly, for the other two headliners its their first time at Glastonbury and we’ve got one male and one female — so there are a couple of clues there".

She added teasingly: “I’m sure people will guess, so don’t put them to me.”

Eavis' interview has already set tongues wagging that the likes of Taylor Swift, Kendrick Lamar and Madonna could be among those topping the bill at the Somerset Festival.

As the Evening Standard reports, the daughter of festival founder Michael Eavis also hinted we may not have to wait too long with the second major booking possibly announced "this side of Christmas"

She added: "Most of it will [announced at] the beginning of 2020. Everyone needs their moment."
