This year's headlners will be: Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran... but who else can you expect to see at the festival this year?
The full list of stage times for Glastonbury 2017 has been announced and we note that there are a few slots “To Be Announced”: The Park Stage Friday @ 19.30; The Other Stage Saturday @ 17.45; and John Peel Stage Sunday @ 17.30. Let the speculating begin!
Glastonbury have confirmed that the Oxford band will headline on Friday 23 June, twenty years after their legendary set in the "Year Of The Mud". The announcement was made with the unveiling of a giant Kid A bear logo by the skeleton of the Pyramid Stage. It's gonna be special. Be at the Pyramid Stage on Friday at 21.30.
Big Dave and co "owe" Glastonbury a show after pulling out in 2015 due to Grohl's busted leg. They confirmed that they will headline on Saturday 24 June at a surprise gig at the tiny Cheese And Grain venue in Somerset. Dave Grohl claims he asked Michael Eavis if they could play three hours! And he said yes! But their slot is officially two hours between 21.45 and 23.45.
It was only six short years ago that young Ed made his first Glasto appearance at the Croissant Neuf tent. Now, he will close the 2017 event in his only UK festival appearance this year. We're putting it out there now: SPECIAL GUESTS! Each one more special than the previous one. Ed plays the Pyramid at 21.45 on Sunday.
Activity on Planet Killers is rife at the moment and we feel a disturbance in the force that an announcement of new material could be in the works. So, what better way to unveil new songs than a surprise slot at Glastonbury? There are slots at The Other Stage on Saturday and the John Peel Stage on Sunday…
Back in active service with live dates and a new album, Humanz, and there's a spare slot at The Park stage on Friday at 19.30... Hmmm....
Barry "Bee Gees, Chain Reaction" Gibb has the “Sunday legends” slot at 4pm, but he was dropping hints that Ms Ross would have the honour in 2017. With both Bazza and Nile Rodgers’ Chic on the Pyramid Stage on Sunday, that’s TWO of the Motown legend’s collaborators in one place. We speculate: SURPRISE GUEST APPEARANCE (possibly).
Chrissie Hynde’s veteran rockers open proceedings on The Other Stage this year, with an early morning set. Lots of great songs, including Brass In Pocket, Stop Your Sobbin’ and many more.
Chatting on Twitter, the Chic man responded to a question asking "Glastonbury this summer?" with an emphatic "YES!!!!" He'll be on the Big Stage on Sunday at 17.45.
They're out of the running for a headline slot, but there's plenty of room for a surprise appearance by the French disco androids. COME ON, THIS FINALLY HAS TO HAPPEN, WE'VE BEEN BANGING ON ABOUT IT FOR YEARS!
Ed Sheeran namechecks old Reg Dwight on his new song Castle On The Hill and they're old pals - could Elton join Ed for a rendition of Tiny Dancer on the Pyramid Stage? Coldplay had Bee Gee Big Barry Gibb last year, so why not? PA
Noel has told Radio X that his third solo album will be out in November. Could he preview some material with a surprise set? He's out this summer touring with U2. There's a slot free at The Park on Friday at 7.30pm...
The younger Gallagher is back and has already confirmed some festival dates for 2017, including EXIT in Serbia. As his former band Beady Eye opened Glastonbury in 2013, he's got previous. Plus, there’s the small matter of his solo album, which is due in October. Photo: Getty
At the launch of the new Floyd exhibition in London, Nick Mason and Roger Waters were asked if they'd play Worthy Farm - they both said yes, but they'd need to get "retired" guitarist David Gilmour on board. "I’ve never played Glastonbury," mused drummer Mason, "It would be fun to do it. I don’t think it would be very likely”. Seeing as there's no spare headline slot, we'd agree.
After returning with her Joanne album - which sees collaborators in Mark Ronson and Tame Impala's Kevin Parker - Lady Gaga is set to tour in 2017. And now, after interviewed about Glasto by Channel 4's Alan Carr, the singer's shown nothing but love for the festival. Could she be heading there this year? Her shows don't kick off until 1 August, but surely she'd want a headline slot? HMMM.
Now hear us out. Robbie Williams is a BIG Glasto fan. When he performed in 1998 he won the crowd over effortlessly, and let's not forget THAT photo of him and Mr. Liam Gallagher. After announcing his tour for the summer, there's a big Glastonbury shaped hole in Robbie's schedule after he plays the Olympic Stadium. Could there be a surprise appearance...?
One favourite has been Axl Rose’s re-constituted LA rockers, now with added Slash and Duff. They set out on a North American tour at the end of June, and have just been wowing the Aussie and the Kiwis. They play German shows on the Thursday and the Saturday, so there's a gap, but no spare Pyramid Stage slots.
Last played in 2014. Back this year with a new album, BUT... headlining Reading And Leeds.
William Hill were taking bets on the Welsh wonders playing the Pyramid Stage, but maybe the spare Other Stage slot is a possible now?
