Could Kings Of Leon play Glastonbury 2017?

'We'll have to get on it'

As Glastonbury 2017 rumours continue to gather momentum, now Kings Of Leon have thrown their hat into the ring among the potential headliners.

While last week saw ‘well sourced information’ point towards Daft Punk, Radiohead and Stone Roses being the headliners, now the ‘Sex On Fire’ rockers have teased that they may also be looking to make an appearance.

King Of Leon last headlined back in 2008, but now drummer Nathan Followill has teased to the BBC that they’re ready to return.


“We love Glastonbury,” he said. “I think that was the first festival we ever played in Europe. Do they still do it where it’s on one year, off one year to let the grass grow?”

When told that 2018 would be a fallow year where Glasto takes a break, he replied: “OK, then we’ll have to get on it in 2017. I’ll have to text Mr Eavis.”
