Radiohead have responded to rumours that they could headline Glastonbury Festival 2017. 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 are also on the rumour mill.
Radiohead guitarist Ed O’Brien was recently asked by BBC 6 Music if they could play next year’s Worthy Farm event: 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.
Glastonbury 2017 sold out within 55 minutes on Sunday morning. If you weren’t lucky enough to secure tickets, there is a second chance in the spring, when Glastonbury 2017 offers its traditional batch of re-sale tickets.
In the same interview with BBC Radio 6, O’Brien told Matt Everitt that he intends to release a solo album next year: We’ve attempted to do something like a full solo album — I haven’t up until two years ago but I am going to now. I’m gonna do one next year.
Will you be happy if Radiohead headline Glastonbury 2017, or are we tired of regurgitated headline bands?
