Prince won't be at Glastonbury

Prince will not be performing at Glastonbury this year

Prince will not be joining the line-up for this year's Glastonbury.

The Purple Rain singer had been rumoured to be in talks with festival organiser Michael Eavis about making an appearance, but Michael's daughter and co-organiser Emily denied he was signed up.

According to Metro she said: "He's someone that will be amazing one day, he's somebody that we haven't had, and we would love to have him at Glastonbury.

"But no, we haven't booked him."

Prince has been performing a series of intimate and secret gigs across the UK and at a press conference in London before they began, he said: " I'm concentrating on these shows in London, I don't know what's happening after."

Already announced for Glastonbury this year are Blondie, Arcade Fire, Disclosure, Lily Allen and Dolly Parton.
