The Strokes rule themselves out of headlining Glastonbury 2015

The Strokes have become the latest artist to be ruled out of headlining this summer's Glastonbury Festival. 

The New Yorkers, who were confirmed to headline one of the shows at this years's British Summer Time Festival earlier this week, took to Twitter to tell fans that they won't be at Worthy Farm this year. 


The Strokes join Coldplay, Adele and Fleetwood Mac in being ruled for a headline slot at Glastonbury. Foo Fighters are the only confirmed headliner for this year's Worthy Farm event, with the likes of Father John Misty, Courtney Barnett and Lionel Richie also confirmed to play across the weekend. 

Glastonbury Festival takes place from June 24th to 28th next sumer. 

The Strokes will headline London's Hyde Park as part of British Summer Time on June 18th this summer, playing on top of a support bill that also includes Beck, Future Islands, Temples, Public Service Broadcasting, The Wytches, Hinds, Gengahr, Yak, and Kieran Leonard. It will be The Strokes' only UK festival appearance this year. 

The band join Blur, Kylie Minogue, Taylor Swift and The Who in headlining the event, which will take place across the last days of June this summer. Blur will headline the park on June 20th with support from Metronomy, The Horrors and more, Minogue headlines the event on June 21st, with support from Grace Jones and Chic with Nile Rodgers, The Who will headline the park on June 26th, with support from Paul Weller, Johnny Marr and the Kaiser Chiefs, while Swift tops the bill on the 27th with support from Ellie Goulding and John Newman. 

The likes of Arcade Fire, The Libertines, McBusted and Neil Young all headlined the event last year.
