Yesterday, crop circles of Radiohead's bear logo appeared at the location of the annual Glastonbury Festival. Today, Radiohead and the festival published Instagram posts saying, "Friday 23 June 2017 – Glastonbury Festival," confirming that the band will indeed be headlining the event. Brooklyn Vegan reminds us, "It won't be Radiohead's first time at Glastonbury. They first played in 1994, then headlined in 1997 and 2003, and played a surprise set in 2011. (Thom Yorke also played a surprise solo set in 2010)."
Tickets for next year's Glastonbury Festival are already sold out, and Radiohead is now the first announced headliner. Pitchfork reports, "Currently, BBC is broadcasting a webcam that shows the festival grounds."
Currently Radiohead only has two upcoming concerts scheduled, including the previously mentioned Glastonbury set. They are also set to play June 28th, 2017 at Open'er Festival in Gdynia, Poland.
Radiohead released their new album A Moon Shaped Pool back in May. The record reached number one in the U.K., and number three on the U.S. Billboard 200.
