Emily Eavis rules The Stone Roses and Daft Punk out of headlining Glastonbury 2017

Emily Eavis has ruled out The Stone Roses and Daft Punk from headlining next summer's Glastonbury Festival. 

Radiohead were confirmed yesterday (October 20th) as the first headliner for next summer's event and reports then speculated that an announcement that The Stone Roses and Daft Punk would be joining them as headliners, but Eavis has now ruled that out. 

Speaking to NME, she said: "There’s no more [headliner] announcements now for a while, but I will tell you the other two that have been rumoured aren’t happening There was a news story that said Daft Punk and Stone Roses. That’s not true. I don’t know where that came from.”

She continued: "Other rumours can roll and that’s fine. Pretty much everyone is rumoured every year. That’s great, but everybody was keen to get [Radiohead] out and let people know as this was such a big one."

Eavis also said that next year was likely to be a fallow year for the festival and so this year's line-up would be extra special. 

She added: "It always seems to get earlier and earlier, but I think because we’re having a year off in ’18, we’re cramming two years of music into next year. We’re quite far down the line. It’s looking so good. We’re certainly all there with all of our headliners across all stages."

Radiohead, who released their new album A Moon Shaped Pool earlier this year (you can preview and purchase it on the right-hand side of the page), will headline the festival's first night on June 23rd next summer.
