Foo Fighters to headline Saturday at Glastonbury 2017


February 24, 2017

We’re delighted to confirm that Foo Fighters will headline the Saturday night of this year’s Glastonbury Festival, on 24 June.

The band have just revealed the news at a special, fan-only show at Frome’s Cheese And Grain venue this evening, which streamed live online.

Said Emily Eavis: “Well, what an extraordinary week! We’re incredibly lucky to have the Foo Fighters headlining on the Saturday night this year – it was obviously devastating when they had to pull out in 2015 – and the thought, effort and generosity they’ve put into this announcement is just unbelievable. Plus, I’m so happy that we’ve been able to help shine a light on Somerset’s local music scene by having one of the world’s biggest bands play in Frome. The Cheese And Grain is a wonderful, not-for-profit venue, which I’m very proud to be a patron of, and it was our first suggestion when the band asked where might be good to do a secret show. They’ve certainly put it on the map now!”
