Odds on Arctic Monkeys to headline Glastonbury 2019 have been slashed


With the band’s polarising sixth album in the bag, and the boys moving around the world thrilling crowds here, there, and everywhere Arctic Monkeys have now had their odds of headlining the enigmatic Glastonbury Festival for 2019, though they still remain behind the favourites for the slots.

Without confirmation of the headline acts for next year’s festival following 2018’s fallow year, the rumours are rife as to who would take on the famous Pyramid Stage. The latest odds have seen Arctic Monkeys’ chances of gracing the hallowed stage grow.

Betway’s Alan Alger said: “We’re keeping a very close eye on the Glastonbury headliner betting at the moment. Kendrick Lamar was strongly supported in the betting earlier this summer, while Stormzy was the man that everyone wanted to back last week.

“Today, we’ve seen plenty of interest for the Arctic Monkeys and have had to cut their odds to 11/4 from 9/2. As things stand, Kendrick Lamar, Elton John and Kylie Minogue occupy the three spots up for grabs, but the way Alex Turner’s band is being backed suggests they’re a likely performer.”

Take a look below at the full list.

Kendrick Lamar 7/4
Elton John 9/4
Kylie Minogue 5/2
Arctic Monkeys 11/4
Stormzy 7/2
Fleetwood Mac 9/2
ABBA 5/1
Calvin Harris 8/1
Swedish House Mafia 8/1
