The Strokes deny rumours that they will perform at Glastonbury this year

Band will be in the UK in June but have refuted speculation they could play Worthy Farm

The Strokes have ruled the possibility of them playing at Glastonbury this year.

The band recently announced details of their first UK gig in five years when they headline the British Summer Time Festival in London’s Hyde Park on June 18. This falls the week before Glastonbury takes place, leading some fans to speculate as to whether that means Julian Casablancas and his band would make an appearance at Worthy Farm.

However, in a message posted on Twitter, the band have distanced themselves from the rumour.


Foo Fighters confirmed they are to headline the 2015 event in their acceptance speech at the NME Awards 2015 with Austin, Texas last month.

Glastonbury organiser Emily Eavis recently denied rumours that Florence + The Machine will headline Glastonbury this year, though did not rule out the possibility that the band will perform at the festival. She has also gone on record as saying that Adele will not headline the event, either.

Last year, NME.COM users voted for Oasis as the band they would most like to see headline Glastonbury next year.

The 2014 festival saw headline performances from Arcade Fire, Metallica and Kasabian.
