Foo Fighters to headline this summer's Glastonbury Festival

Foo Fighters have confirmed that they are to headline this summer's Glastonbury Festival. 

The band, who had long been favourites to play the Worthy Farm festival, confirmed the news last night (February 18th) as they accepted the award for Best International Band at the NME Awards.

During his video acceptance speech, frontman Dave Grohl said that the group would be "seeing us soon at an outdoor festival", before coughing 'Glastonbury' under his breath.

The news has also been confirmed by the festival organisers, who announced on Instagram that Dave Grohl and co would be headlining the festival's first night. 

We're very pleased to confirm that @foofighters will headline the Friday of this year's Festival.

Next summer's festival had previously only seen a handful of artists confirmed, with crooner Lionel Richie easily the most high-profile, he will also play the event on the final day.

Organiser Michael Eavis has already ruled out both Queen and Fleetwood Mac from headlining the event, with Florence and The Machine and Coldplay the favourites to headline the festival's other days. 

Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 24th to 28th next sumer. Foo Fighters released their new album Sonic Highways in November, you can preview it on the right-hand side of the page.
