2014, beating the likes of Foo Fighters
to claim the top spot.

poll to name who they would most like to see play at the Worthy Farm festival this June, naming the Thin White Duke
as their dream act.
While the full Glastonbury line-up is expected to be announced any day now, fans may be left disappointed as Bowie has consistently denied rumours that he will be playing any live shows off the back of his critically-acclaimed and insanely successful 2013 comeback album, "The Next Day
Elsewhere in the poll, Foo Fighters came in second. The band have played a string of shows in Mexico and America recently, as they prepare to release their upcoming eighth. Dave Grohl
and co are yet to announce any UK dates, and with the album expected this summer, the rockers have been a strong Glastonbury rumour for some months now.
Elsewhere, Prince placed third in our poll, while Pharrell
came in at No.4 and Bombay Bicycle Club
completed our top five. Prince has also denied any association with Glasto this year, but Pharrell and Bombay Bicycle Club seem far more likely to perform.
