“Taylor politely declined when approached because the timing is not right at the moment,” a source told the Sun newspaper.

“Of course, she would love to hit the headlines at some point. It’s always on her to-do list, but performing isn’t her priority at the moment.

“She has old albums that she is still working on re-recording and finishing those is her focus.”

There have been two consecutive “fallow years” since then due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

So far, Billie Eilish is the only confirmed headliner for 2022.

Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis confirmed the booking and said the 20-year-old would be “the youngest solo headliner in our history”.

Diana Ross, meanwhile, has been confirmed as playing the Legends slot.

Last year, an event was broadcast live from the festival site in Somerset.

Performing artists included George Ezra, Haim, Jorja Smith, Idles, Kano, Wolf Alice, Michael Kiwanuka, Damon Albarn, The Smile and Roisin Murphy.
