Coldplay top UK headliners poll

Coldplay have been voted the best festival headliner of 2011, in an online poll conducted by BBC 6 Music. The band – who headlined Glastonbury and T In The Park – topped the survey with 22.7% of votes cast, breakfast show host Shaun Keaveny announced. US rock band The National came in second with 14.2%, while Muse were third with 13.9%. Coldplay’s drummer Will Champion told 6 Music playing festivals gave the band “a chance to win people over” and added “But there’s also a strong possibility that people have already made their mind up about you,” he added, “and no matter how well you play they’re not going to be happy about it.”
