Glastonbury boss Emily Eavis has revealed to NME that the line-up for next yearâ€™s festival is â€˜90% bookedâ€™ and will feature â€˜two yearsâ€™ worth of musicâ€™.
Yesterday saw Glastonbury announce Radiohead as the first headliner of Glastonbury 2017 â€“ doing so 20 years since their first time topping the bill on the Pyramid Stage in 1997.
While Eavis did shoot down rumours of Stone Roses and Daft Punk joining them as fellow headliners, she has told NME that next yearâ€™s line-up is shaping up nicely â€“ and will pack in more acts to account for 2018 being a fallow year.
â€œSo weâ€™re about 90 percent of the way there now,â€ Eavis told NME of progress with the line-up. â€œIt always seems to get earlier and earlier, but I think because weâ€™re having a year off in â€™18, weâ€™re cramming two years of music into next year. Weâ€™re quite far down the line. Itâ€™s looking so good. Weâ€™re certainly all there with all of our headliners across all stages.â€
