Curiously, although straight after the festival Michael Eavis would tell anyone who listened that Jay-Z's headline set had saved the festival and guaranteed the next four years, they're not going to do anything like him for headlining next year:
"We'll probably be going for the more traditional headliner next year," he said, "because there are more of them around and after this year everyone wants to come on board because it was such a good do. The thing is people are coming back."
So, you really believe that without something like Jay-Z there wouldn't be a Glastonbury at all in 2009, and yet don't need anything like him in the headline slot in 2009? How does that make any sense?
Meanwhile, tickets for 2009 are going to go on sale in October. Oddly, Michael is convinced demand will be higher next time round, but, erm, is going to give himself an extra half-year to flog tickets in.
Oh, and yes: Tickets are going to go up again. The blame is being put on rising fuel costs.
