20th October 2016

Glastonbury have official announced that RADIOHEAD are the first band to headline the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury 2017 on the 23rd June.

The band last headlined the Pyramid stage back in 2003 with the time before that being 1997. That makes it their third appearance as headliners.

The news was broken out after Glastonbury posted an image on their twitter of Radiohead’s “angry bear” logo painted as a crop circle in front of the Pyramid stage.

In an interview with Radio 6, frontman Thom Yorke described Glastonbury as “the mother of all festivals”.

The band’s latest album “A Moon Shaped Pool” went to number one in the UK just one week after its release back in May, with every album they have put out since 1997’s “OK Computer” entering the top ten in both the UK and Australia.
