Glastonbury Festival is right around the corner with thousands of music fans set to make the pilgrimage to Worthy Farm for a weekend of live music.

Those that secured tickets will be treated to headline sets from the likes of Dua Lipa, Coldplay, and SZA, with Shania Twain performing in the traditional Sunday Legends slot.

And while the weather looks set to be ‘wetter than average’, music lovers will be looking forward to a weekend of entertainment from hundreds of varied artists.

Among this year’s fun is the alleged promise of secret acts, with huge names popping up every year to dazzle lucky fans.

Last year saw the Foo Fighters pop in to play a few songs, with past secret sets including the likes of Lady Gaga, Pulp, George Ezra, Mumford and Sons, and Radiohead’s Thom Yorke.

Rumours are already swirling as to who could pop up this year, with these bands and artists at the forefront of everyone’s minds.

Kasabian are the most hotly tipped band to be performing a secret set at this year’s Glasto – so much so that, according to NME, William Hill has suspended betting on the band ‘after seeing some telling bets.’

The Leicester rockers have played the iconic festival five times, headlining the Pyramid Stage for the first time in 2014.

The festival kicks off a week before the release of their latest studio album, Happenings, leading many to believe they may pop in to play a few new tracks.

When it comes to predicting Glasto secret sets, many fans look at tour schedules and where telling gaps appear around June.

The Killers, coincidentally, are touring their new greatest hits release Rebel Diamonds in the UK – with a huge gap between shows in Glasgow and London which coincides with Glastonbury.

Fronted by Brandon Flowers, the band have hit the festival four times, headlining in 2019 which broke records as the loudest set of the event’s history at 106 decibels.

Should they be one of the secret set at this year’s event, it wouldn’t be the first time after the band surprised fans with a performance on the John Peel stage in 2017.
