The festival organiser has teased more information which could suggest Stormzy could be set to top the bill on the Pyramid Stage.
Emily Eavis has teased that one of the Glastonbury headliners is a British male.
Speaking to the BBC, the festival organiser teased that the Friday headliner was an artist who "hasn't had a stage like this before".
Though not sharing the name of the star, she said: "We have got one of the artists that I'm most excited about in Britain right now," adding: "This to me is going to be a moment. And he can become the enormous person that he is, do you know what I mean?"
This has led fans of the Somerset festival to speculate that Stormzy will top the bill on the famous Pyramid Stage.
According to the outlet, Eavis also ruled out Fleetwood Mac for this year, but said they're always on their lists.
The grime star himself sent the rumour mill into a frenzy this summer when he shared an Instagram Story with the words: No I’m not havin hip hop at Glastonbury… Fuckin’ No chance.”
On Stormzy's Instagram story, he's showing what's almost the old Noel Gallagher quote from when Jay Z was announced as headliner in 2008.— The Glasto Thingy (@TheGlastoThingy) August 23, 2018

The quote is a reference to Noel Gallagher, who told NME after hearing that Jay-Z would be headlining the festival in 2008: “Glastonbury has a tradition of guitar music and even when they throw the odd curve ball in on a Sunday night you go 'Kylie Minogue?’ I don't know about it.
“But I'm not having hip-hop at Glastonbury. It's wrong."
Jay Z famously responded to his Noel Gallagher and his critics by arriving on stage for his headline slot complete with a guitar, while singing the words to Wonderwall.
