Glastonbury 2017: Guns N’ Roses Early Favourites To Headline Festival

This year’s Glastonbury festival may have only just come to an end, but bookmakers are already predicting the next line-up.

Guns N’ Roses are the early favourites to headline Glastonbury Festival 2017 – with Slash and Axl Rose reuniting after a 21 year break for a series of US dates, but have yet to play in the UK.

William Hill has given the rock band odds of 8/1 to headline at Worthy Farm next year, alongside other early contenders: Kasabian at 5/4, followed by Radiohead and The Stone Roses at 2/1.

Meanwhile, Rihanna (7/1), Ed Sheeran (4/1) and The Foo Fighters (3/1) are amongst some of the other names rumoured to perform at the event.

In response to the statistics, William Hill press officer Joe Crilly said: “After yet another successful Glastonbury, all thoughts will already be turning towards 2017’s festival.

“It looks likely that a couple of recently reformed bands – Guns N’ Roses and The Stone Roses – may be headlining the Pyramid Stage next summer.”
