Either aliens have invaded the Glastonbury Grounds and they’re big fans of Radiohead, or the UK Music Festival has just gained a legendary headliner.
Radiohead have been confirmed to headline Glastonbury 2017 after the band’s infamous logo started to “mysteriously” appear in the grass on the festival site.

Last night fans caught a glimpse of, what appeared to be, the band’s ‘bear face’ logo etched into the field by the Pyramid Stage at Worthy Farm. How close encounter of the third kind-esque.
After much anticipation and flourishing excitement, it’s finally been confirmed – with both Glastonbury and the band officially announcing Radiohead’s headliner status, for the third time, performing on Friday June 23rd. The news was confirmed on Thursday afternoon, with this photo appearing on the festival’s official Twitter page.

This will be their first time headlining the event since 2003, and their first UK festival appearance since 2011’s “secret set” on Glastonbury’s outlying Park Stage.
Will you make the trip?
