Daft Punk are reportedly set to headline Glastonbury 2017, with the French duo said to be joined on the top of the bill by Radiohead and The Stone Roses.
According to a statement from UK-based festival website eFestivals.co.uk, they had “well-sourced information” that Daft Punk will be playing the headline slot on the Pyramid Stage on the Friday night “several months ago”. You can read the statement in full below:
“eFestivals currently believes that next year Radiohead will be given that opportunity to headline on Saturday. We also strongly believe The Stone Roses are the front runners to top the bill on Sunday, and while we are less certain on the third headlining act, we have had what should be well-sourced information several months ago, that it’s supposedly Daft Punk topping the bill on the Friday.”
There has been mixed messages about Daft Punk’s supposed Alive 2017 tour recently. Rumours started last month (September) through online forum/aggregator Reddit, when a user uncovered a page on the Lollapalooza festival website dedicated to Daft Punk.
Those rumours were quickly debunked by reports that an “industry source” had confirmed that Daft Punk have no plans to perform live next year, before an eagle-eyed Redditor stumbled across Alive2017.com, a website littered with clues about the French duo.
