Metallica star Lars Ulrich has fueled rumors rock veterans AC/DC will headline Britain’s iconic Glastonbury festival next year.

The Enter Sandman hitmakers headlined at the annual event last month and drummer Ulrich admits he had such a great time he is planning to return to Glastonbury as a fan in 2015.

Now he has let slip that rumors linking Highway to Hell stars AC/DC to a bill-topping set next year could be true.

Ulrich tells Q magazine, “Can I throw in my first bid for who I think (organizer) Michael Eavis has booked for next year? I have heard it might be a band whose lead singer is British, but none of the rest of the band are. Yeah… AC/DC. Come on! Can you imagine that?”
