It’s been confirmed – Radiohead will headline Glastonbury next year. It will be the first time the band have appeared on the Pyramid Stage since 2003, although they did play a sneaky ‘secret’ set on one of the festival’s smaller stages in 2011.

Earlier in the year Radiohead released their long awaited 9th studio album, A Moon Shaped Pool. For those yet to give it a spin, check out the brilliant video for lead single ‘Burn The Witch’, below.
As for the identity of next years other potential headliners, festival website efestivals have both Lady Gaga and The Stone Roses as strong rumours, as well as Diana Ross, who is being heavily backed for the converted Sunday teatime slot.
Tickets for the 2017’s festival sold out in under an hour when they went on sale earlier in October.
