Daft Punk and Lady Gaga ‘approached to perform at Glastonbury’

Radiohead, Kraftwerk and The Stone Roses are also rumoured

Daft Punk and Lady Gaga are being rumoured to perform at Glastonbury, with both acts allegedly ‘approached’ to appear at the festival.

This week saw speculation that Daft Punk would return to touring in 2017, after a page was discovered on Lollapalooza’s website suggesting that they’d be performing at the festival in 2017. Next year would also tie in with their patterns of touring once a decade, after taking to the road in 1997 and 2007.

A ‘source’ later denied the rumours however.


Now, the Daily Star reports that ‘approaches have been made’ from the Eavises for both acts to perform at the festival – with Daft Punk set to headline and Lady Gaga more likely for a ‘special guest’ slot.

Gaga last performed at the festival with two acclaimed sets back in 2009. She is set to release her fifth album ‘Joanne’ on 21 October, after revealing the tracklist which features Florence Welch as a special guest.

Kraftwerk are also rumoured to appear, after announcing a UK tour which ends shortly before Glastonbury begins. The Stone Roses are also tipped to headline as their UK stadium tour also coincides with the Worthy Farm event.

Ed Sheeran, Radiohead and Fleetwood Mac are also among the other rumours.
