Cult indie-rockers Radiohead have been confirmed as headliners for Worthy Farm’s annual shindig next summer.

The news that the Oxford five-piece will close the Pyramid Stage on Friday 23 June was officially announced across Glastonbury Festival’s social media yesterday (20 October).

However, festival organiser Emily Eavis has quelled any rumours that Daft Punk or The Stone Roses will also headline.

Talking to the NME, she said: ‘There’s no more [headliner] announcements now for a while, but I will tell you the other two that have been rumoured aren’t happening.

‘There was a news story that said Daft Punk and Stone Roses. That’s not true. I don’t know where that came from.’

Other rumoured contenders for the two remaining headlining slots, including Kasabian, Ed Sheeran and Guns N Roses, were not ruled out by Eavis.

The next Glastonbury Festival takes place from 21 to 25 June 2017.
