Elbow‘s Guy Garvey has strongly hinted his band will play this year’s Glastonbury festival.

Although they haven’t been confirmed for the June 24-26 bash, Garvey told BBC Newsbeat that Elbow will be playing UK festivals this year, and went on to reference Glastonbury.

“I’m not sure what I’m allowed to tell you and what I’m not,” he said when asked about the festival. “We are definitely going to be playing some festivals in the UK. All the best ones, let’s put it that way.”

Speaking about one of this year’s Glastonbury headliners, Beyonce, Garvey said: “Glastonbury is the best festival in the world year on year and they know what they are doing. If they chose Beyonce to close it’s because they know it’ll be a fantastic finish.”

Elbow release their new album, ‘Build A Rocket Boys!’, on March 7. The band last played Glastonbury in 2008.
