The band have announced a headline date at British Summer Time in Hyde Park next year.

Kings of Leon are likely to have ruled themselves out of headlining Glastonbury next year, according to reports.

Yesterday (24 November), saw the Waste A Moment four-piece confirm a headline slot at Barclaycard presents British Summer Time on 6 July 2017.

According to Somerset Live, Caleb Followill and co. may have signed an exclusivity deal with the Hyde Park festival, making it very unlikely they'll headline Glastonbury next year. 

It is speculated that Pixies could be in with a chance at playing the Somerset festival, since they are supporting Kings Of Leon at Hyde Park.

Still, if the last few years of Glasto headliners are anything to go by, it's more likely the Debaser outfit will headline The Other Stage rather than take a spot at the Pyramid Stage next year. 

So far, only Radiohead have confirmed they will play the festival on Friday 23 June. 

While Emily Eavis confirmed in an interview that Daft Punk and The Stone Roses would not be headlining, she was happy to let other rumours "roll".

Meanwhile, Foo Fighters are very much in the frame to take one of the top spots at Worthy Farm, after unveiling their digital passport and announcing a flurry European festival dates for 2017.
