When is Glastonbury? June 21-25th 2017

Where is Glastonbury held? Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset

Glastonbury information: 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. Bookmakers' odds suggest that Glastonbury 2017's lineup may include Guns N' Roses as headliners (8/11), with Kasabian also in the running with odds of 5/4. Radiohead and The Stone Roses have odds of 2/1, and Foo Fighters are in at 3/1. The latter were scheduled to headline in 2015, but were forced to withdraw after frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg; they were replaced by Florence And The Machine. Keep an eye out on NME.com for announcements about and the latest additions to the Glastonbury line-up.
