radiohead-nosalive2016-kp-5

The eFestivals prediction is coming true it seems. Radiohead will be the first leading act confirmed for the 2017 Glastonbury Festival. The band’s ‘bear face logo’ on the famous Glastonbury Pyramid Stage surely confirms all. Radiohead are on their way and they headline on the Friday night – that’s the news in the QuotroFest office anyway.

Reports efestivals…..

“2017 will see Thom Yorke and Co. celebrate the 20th anniversary of their seminal 1997 appearance. This is an anniversary which also coincides with the release of their third breakthrough album, ‘OK Computer’.

headlined

Members of the band usually attend the Festival every year.  The band last appeared at The Park in 2011 as surprise special guests. That was the same stage Thom Yorke appeared upon in 2010. The Other was the (NME) Stage in 1994. Radiohead have previously headlined Glastonbury Festival’s Pyramid Stage in 2003, and in 1997.”
