Exciting news, Little Monsters: Lady Gaga has dropped a rather sizeable hint that she will be taking to the Pyramid Stage for Glastonbury 2017.

The best-selling artist, who has just released her brand new album Joanne, recently responded to festival line-up rumours but refused to divulge whether she will be making an appearance at Worthy Farm next year.

When asked if the rumours of a headline slot were true, Lady Gaga told NME: “Glaaaastonbury! I don’t have permission to say anything about that.”

The Perfect Illusion singer has been one of the rumoured headliners for the last few months, after it was reported that she had been “approached” by festival organisers.

She last appeared at the festival back in 2009, performing two sets on the Other Stage and entertaining the crowd with her dancing, mid-song banter and a variety of costumes – including a boob flamethrower!

While referring to her more recent stripped-back live shows, Lady Gaga hinted about what could be in store for her future tour dates, suggesting that she might return to her more extravagant ways.

“What I would say to those who are terrified that I’ll never again embrace absurdity or the avant-garde is ‘think again,’” she explained. “Because that is my favourite thing.”

Meanwhile the rumour mill about potential headliners has been in overdrive, with reports suggesting both Daft Punk and Stone Roses would be playing at the festival next summer.

Emily Eavis, who is in charge of Glastonbury bookings, has since quashed the rumours, stating: “There’s no more [headliner] announcements now for a while, but I will you the other two that have been rumoured aren’t happening.

“There was a news story that said Daft Punk and Stone Roses. That’s not true. I don’t know where that came from.”

Radiohead are the only confirmed headline act for Glastonbury 2017, which will return to Worthy Farm from June 21 to June 25, 2017.
