Band among favourites to top Pyramid Stage next year
Glastonbury Festival 2017 will run from June 21-25. Radiohead are among the favourites to top the Pyramid Stage next year, along with Guns N’ Roses, Kasabian and The Stone Roses. Daft Punk and Lady Gaga have also been rumoured.
Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien was recently asked by BBC 6 Music if they could play next year’s Worthy Farm event, to which he replied: “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.”
O’Brien also revealed that the band are set to discuss possible tour dates for 2017, although nothing has yet been decided.
Tickets for Glastonbury 2017 sold out in just 55 minutes on Sunday morning (October 9). Some fans reported on social media that the See Tickets website crashed as they tried to buy tickets, but others tweeted that they had managed to purchase tickets without problem.
Fans who weren’t lucky enough to secure tickets today will have a second chance in the spring, when Glastonbury offers its traditional batch of re-sale tickets.
