LONDON (AP) — Alternative rock group Radiohead will play one of the headline slots at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.
Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis confirmed Thursday on Instagram that “Radiohead will be back at Worthy Farm” — the festival site in southwest England.
The band’s spokesman says Radiohead will play the main Pyramid Stage on the festival’s opening night, Friday June 23.
Rumors had been circulating since Wednesday, when the bear’s head logo of the band appeared in a crop circle at the Glastonbury site.
