Glastonbury Confirms Daft Punk and Stone Roses Will Not Headline 2017 Festival
Posted on 22 October 2016
Daft Punk and the Stone Roses will not headline the Glastonbury Festival in 2017, according to festival organizer Emily Eavis. She told NME that despite rumors, neither band would perform at the next iteration of the festival. “There was a news story that said Daft Punk and Stone Roses. That’s not true. I don’t know where that came from,” she said.
Eavis added that there wont’t be any new headline “announcements now for a while,” but shared that the organizers were “90% there” with finalizing the festival’s lineup, saying, “We’re quite far down the line. It’s looking so good. We’re certainly all there with all of our headliners across all stages.”
Yesterday, it was confirmed that Radiohead would headline next year’s festival. The confirmation came after mysterious crop circles in the shape of the band’s “modified bear” logo appeared at Glastonbury’s site.
Daft Punk did not tour behind their last album Random Access Memories, and rumors of a live tour began circulating this past fall, shortly after they teamed up with the Weeknd for a new song called “Starboy.”
