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!”
