Glastonbury 2017 line-up: Nile Rodgers seemingly confirms himself

This year’s Glastonbury line-up has been met with a somewhat lacklustre response, with Radiohead, Foo Fighters, and Ed Sheeran being announced as headliners.

However, a much-needed injection of disco has been gifted upon us as Nile Rodgers has seemingly confirmed himself for the festival.

Asked on Twitter whether he would be taking the muddy road down to Worthy Farm, Rodgers simply responded “YES!!!!!”

Rodgers last played the festival in 2013, where - alongside Chic - he headlined the West Holts stage, going up against the Arctic Monkey on the Pyramid stage.

The set included such hits as ‘Everybody Dance’, ‘Dance Dance Dance’, ‘I'm Coming Out’, ‘Upside Down’, ‘He's The Greatest Dancer’ and We Are Family’. Expect a similar strong of hits later this year along with material from Chic’s upcoming album.

Recently, London Grammer self-confirmed themselves for the festival, while Michael Eavis announced that next - during the festival’s fallow year - a spin-off festival called The Variety Bazaar will take place. The following year, the festival will return to Worthy Farm.

The full Glastonbury line-up will be released in the near future but an exact date remains unconfirmed.
