Who's Touring Around Glastonbury 2017?

Recommended Posts

The annual thread to see who is out and about and available to play the festival.

This is the first 2017 festival line up I've seen, plenty on here I'd love to see at Glastonbury.

If you look at thewir line-ups from previous there's not many that end up at Glastonbury - shame as I've always thought it would be great to have them.

That's a shame, some quality acts on the bill.

Booker T presents The Stax Record Review sounds interesting, would be great to see St Paul back and there's at least another 10 acts I'd love to see. First time I've seen Joan Osbourne's name mentioned in ages.

Saw Booker T play in Manchester two years ago, super gig at Band on the Wall as per photo, love to see him again

I saw him at Latitude a couple of years back, great stuff. Gotta love Green Onions.

To be fair, about half that line-up have played in the last couple of years.

Guns n Roses are touring japan, new zealand and Australia in February, I'd expect a European tour. Glasto wont happen, due to cash.

Rumours will start though.

Yaaas! Love this thread.

Although my excitement was tempered somewhat when I realised it was 'Beth Hart' not 'Bret Hart' in the original post.

London Grammar have announced their live return, at an Australian festival in January. I 100% expect them at GF2017

From what I've observed with Australian festivals, artists tend to do the summer in Europe, then head down under after that. Rare you'd find them doing it the other way around.

I'm excited to see this thread, though. It's an eFest staple.

Don't be coming in here with your well thought out, perfectly reasonable observations. Rumour and conjecture is what keeps us alive!

Fair enough! New headliner predictions:

Led Zeppelin
Oasis
Rolf (via hologram)

Yes! They've been away for far too long. They were the last act I saw in 2014, and despite being so tired I could barely stand, they were one of the highlights, even though I'd already seen them a few weeks before at a festival in Nottingham. Now for that second album...

considering the prominent slot they got from just their first album i'd imagine they'll be pretty high up Other or even get a Pyramid slot this time 'round

I'd rather they didn't get a Pyramid slot - their music works so much better at night IMO, and they're not big enough to headline the Pyramid. Park headliner?
