Michael Eavis has reportedly confirmed that Muse and Stevie Wonder are the other two headliners of Glastonbury Festival this June.

The dairy farmer made the revelations while speaking at the Event Production Show at the Olympia in London today.

According to the event website, Eavis said that Muse will be playing the Pyramid Stage Saturday night while music icon Stevie Wonder will close on the Sunday, providing contract talks with the latter go through.

Although neither Wonder or Muse are 'officially confirmed', it seems they will join the previously announced Friday night headliners U2 at Worthy Farm.

The Rolling Stones, David Bowie, Led Zeppelin, Radiohead and Fleetwood Mac were amongst the flurry of acts rumoured to be headlining the 40th anniversary of Glastonbury this summer.

In other less pressing Glastonbury news, Michael Eavis also revealed during his speech that the event cost £25million a year to stage.

In 2009, they donated £2million to various charities.

Glastonbury Festival takes place on Worthy Farm in Somerset from June 23rd to the 27th, 2010.
