Betway's Alan Alger said in a press release: "With Stormzy already announced, rumours continue to circle on who will be Glastonbury’s second and third headliners.

“The Cure are no strangers to the Somerset festival and we make them the 2/5 favourites to rock it out once again, with the market suggesting The Killers at 8/11 are likely to join them.

“It appears as if the remaining headliners are going to be a bands with The Strokes (100/30), Fleetwood Mac (9/2) and Led Zeppelin (5/1) all prominent in the market, and you have to go down to Lady Gaga at 7/1 to find a soloist in with a chance.”

The Cure have headlined Glastonbury three times already, last playing Worthy Farm in 1995.

Speaking to the BBC about the possibility of playing the festival again in 2018, frontman Robert Smith said: "Yeah, maybe. We haven't had a happy history with Glastonbury over the years."Although we've headlined three times, we've never been on the best of terms.

"I don't know if they forgive and forget. There are enough other festivals for us to play."
