Who will replace the Foo Fighters at Glastonbury Festival 2015?

Who will replace the Foo Fighters at Glastonbury Festival 2015?

Last night, the Foo Fighters dropped out of their UK tour and this year's Glastonbury festival due to Dave Grohl's leg break.

Emily Eavis said yesterday afternoon that they had made 'precautions' and had a plan if this were to happen.

So, what is that plan? What can you fill that Foo Fighters-shaped hole with? Currently on the official website, it is listed as TBA.

Well, Florence + The Machine are the obvious choice, as the team at Worthy Farm have said in the past how they'd love for them to headline in the future. Also, they were already booked to play shortly before the Foo Fighters, so it would merely be a case of bumping them up. Florence has recently recovered from her own foot break suffered at Coachella, so it would come with a certain amount of synergy to it.

Another potential headliner, though the Glastonbury faitfhful are likely to not be happy about it, is Taylor Swift. She has a show at British Summer Time the night after, and will be around on Friday in the UK with a free evening... Somerset is a short trip on the M4, M25, M3 and A303 away, so who knows?

Rudimental are headlining the Other Stage, Hot Chip the West Holts and Super Furry Animals at the Park Stage, so we could be seeing one of them making the trip over across Worthy Farm to the Pyramid.
