British rockers Kasabian have reportedly landed the coveted headline slot on the final day of the 2014 Glastonbury festival after previously criticising organisers for failing to include the band in last year's (13) event. The acts for the upcoming U.K. festival have yet to be officially announced, but the most coveted slot on the iconic Pyramid Stage has been given to the Empire hitmakers, according to Britain's Daily Star newspaper. Country legend Dolly Parton is also rumoured to be on the bill for the final day of the event in June (14). Kasabian frontman Tom Meighan previously criticised Glastonbury organiser Michael Eavis for failing to include his band in the 2013 line-up, which featured headline sets from The Rolling Stones, Arctic Monkeys and Mumford & Sons. He said of the snub, "I'm not playing second fiddle to those bands. We're just as good, if not better. We're the ultimate, we're the headline band. But he (Eavis) didn't call us, the b**tard. Glastonbury's on our 'to-do' list. All he's got to do is pick up the phone. "We've got every f**king right to headline Glastonbury 'cos we're good enough. It will happen."
