Glastonbury 2017- 88 more acts announced

The world famous Somerset festival further announced 88 more acts to accompany headliners, Radiohead, Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran.

Among the newly announced acts, Katy Perry will make her debut at the festival as well as British grime artists Stormzy, Kano and Wiley.

Brighton rock-duo Royal Blood were also amongst the newly announced acts and will take the stage at Glastonbury for the second time as fans eagerly await their second studio album, set to be released within the coming months.

The festival will cover a wide range of genres to cater for all audiences, but tickets for the highly anticipated weekend from the 21st-25th June have already sold out.

British rock band Radiohead will kick off the weekend, headlining on Friday. It will be their first appearance at Glastonbury since a secret set in 2011, but will be the third time they have headlined.

Foo Fighters will headline on Saturday evening, making their long awaited return to Glastonbury, having first played the festival in 1998. The American rockers were scheduled to headline in 2015 but had to withdraw after lead singer and guitarist, Dave Grohl, broke his leg at a gig during their 2015 tour.

Ed Sheeran will close the festival as the final headliner on the Pyramid stage after debuting at Glastonbury in 2011. His appearance had been met with excitement from fans after 16 of his tracks from his latest album, ‘divide’, featured in the UK’s Top 20.
