Michael Eavis reveals Glastonbury headliners for 2016 and 2017 are all booked
Michael Eavis revealed last night (September 8th) that he has booked the headliners for Glastonbury in 2016 and 2017.
Eavis, whose daughter Emily had previously revealed that headliners for the Worthy Farm festival had been secured for 2016, confirmed to BBC Radio 1 reporter Sinéad Garvan at the AIM Awards that he had secured headliners for the 2017 event too.
Asked if he could give any details on the acts, the Glastonbury boss stated that four of the six headliners have topped the bill before and two are completely new.
Glastonbury was headlined earlier this summer by Kanye West, The Who and Florence And The Machine, Florence and her band were last-minute replacements for the Foo Fighters, who were forced to pull out due to injury. Speculation has already been mounting that the band will now return to headline next year instead.
Glastonbury Festival 2016 will take place at Worthy Farm from June 22nd to June 26th next summer.
