FOO Fighters will be headlining the Glastonbury Festival 2017 on the Saturday night, the band have announced.

The American rockers will play the Pyramid stage on Saturday, June 24, confirming rumours they would take the slot.

The announcement came during a secret show for fans in Frome, Somerset, on Friday night – their first in 18 months. It was also viewed by fans on a live internet stream of the Frome gig, with a video that saw the band sitting on the festival site four months early.

Singer and guitarist Dave Grohl said: “So, who knew? How did you know? You just can’t keep a… secret any more.”

Foo Fighters will also be joined by Radiohead for the festival. Further acts will be announced in due course, with widespread speculation surrounding the likes of Ed Sheeran and Green Day.
