Next year's festival will run from June 21-25
Glastonbury Festival 2017 will run from June 21-25. Radiohead are among the favourites to top the Pyramid Stage next year, as are The Stone Roses, Guns N’ Roses and Kasabian. Daft Punk have also been rumoured along with Lady Gaga.
Festivals website eFestivals has now released a statement allegedly citing “well-sourced information”, suggesting that these will be the three acts to top the Pyramid Stage in 2017.
The statement reads: “eFestivals currently believes that next year Radiohead will be given that opportunity to headline on Saturday. We also strongly believe The Stone Roses are the front runners to top the bill on Sunday, and while we are less certain on the third headlining act, we have had what should be well-sourced information several months ago, that it’s supposedly Daft Punk topping the bill on the Friday.”
NME has asked Glastonbury Festival for a comment on the reports.
Radiohead member Ed O’Brien recently commented on reports that his band would headline next year’s Worthy Farm event, saying: “I would love to. I go to Glastonbury every year, it’s my carnival. To be asked to play at Glastonbury again would be magic. I also think Glastonbury is like our spiritual home. It is the mother of all festivals… there’s nothing like that one… It would be great to play there.”
