Rockers Fleetwood Mac have fueled rumors they are lined up to headline Britain’s biggest rock festival next year.

Glastonbury boss Michael Eavis teased fans earlier this month by stating he is on the verge of signing 2014’s three main headline acts, who have not previously performed at the event.

It has now emerged drummer Mick Fleetwood could be taking to the stage with his band mates after he dropped a major hint that the “Don’t Stop” hit makers are in the frame for a Glastonbury performance.

He says, “I don’t know. They’ve probably got fed up of asking us. We were asked to do Glastonbury this year and hopefully they’ll ask us again.”
