The Glastonbury festival is back on and Pink Floyd may be playing! Supposedly. I have read on several sites that Pink Floyd will be there. The 3 day festival will take place between 28-30th June 2002.
Michael Eavis (organiser) [confirmed] last night that both Rod Stewart and Pink Floyd would be headlining nights at the festival. He also said that The Who would not be able to play because of commitments in America. He also said Pink Floyd would play on BBC Radio. Thing is… his Glastonbury website says that it is just a rumour… Pink Floyd are not confirmed. The BBC say Roger may be playing and this makes sense as it is a few days before the end of his tour. I don’t know!!
The Glastonbury festival is the largest of its kind in Europe and has been a muddy occasion in the past as you can see by the picture below! I hope Pink Floyd do play.
