HUGE international band announced to headline Glastonbury 2017

SHARE

The Foo Fighters have been announced as the second act to headline Glastonbury Festival 2017.

The band have long been rumoured to headline Worthy Farm this year, especially since they were forced to pull out of their 2015 headline slot when frontman Dave Grohl broke his leg.

After teasing the announcement earlier this week, the group have now confirmed the news at a surprise intimate gig in Frome, Somerset.

The invite-only gig in was the Foo Fighter’s first show in one and a half years.

The American band will headline the Pyramid Stage on the Saturday night of this year’s festival.

Radiohead are the only other officially confirmed act for the festival, while Wiley has confirmed himself for the festival and The Avalanches have also leaked that they would be performing.

Country icon Kris Kristofferson also looks set to play. Rumoured acts include Ed Sheeran and Depeche Mode.

Glastonbury 2017 will run from June 21st to 25th 2017.
