The festival organiser has said "it would be great" to get the singer.

Emily Eavis has hinted that Adele could be the final headliner announced for Glastonbury 2016.

Speaking to ID, the festival organiser discussed the lack of female artists at the festival and promised that Glasto was doing plenty to address the balance this year and has "consciously tried to book as many female acts on the main stages" as possible.

When asked about the Oscar-winning singer, Eavis said:“We love Adele. She’s an incredible artist and brilliantly honest and funny and real and that’s what everybody loves about her. She’s a great example because she doesn’t put up any pretence.”

She added: "There’s a certain pressure on women to perform in a certain way or be giving off this kind of image, while Adele is just honest and true and funny and just about as popular as you can get."

When asked if she'd like the Hello singer to play the festival, she added:"It would be great to get her."

Coldplay and Muse have previously been announced for the Somerset festival, with Emily previously teasing all three headliners were British.
