Notorious for hosting some of the biggest and most aspiring names in music, Glastonbury Festival takes place over a 5-day period, come rain or shine, down in Pilton, Somerset as it has done for the past 46 years. The festival is also home to a wide variety of acts; from circus to comedy as well as a plethora of different artists spanning multiple genres.
Glastonbury 2016 saw a mixture of music royalty, in the form of apocalyptic rockers Muse, alongside Coldplay, who headlined for the fourth time and raised a huge Pyramid Stage spectacle with LED wristbands, fireworks and confetti. The big news of the year, though, was Adele, whose Pyramid Stage set won a huge crowd with hilarious banter and world-conquering ballads.
This year will see much of the same with another set of gigantic headliners and a genre-spanning lineup. Confirmed to headline in 2017 are Foo Fighters, Radiohead and Ed Sheeran, with Kris Kristoffersen, London Grammar and more all self-confirming for the festival. The full line-up is due out before the end of March.
