RADIOHEAD have been booked in Glastonbury’s Sunday afternoon slot for heritage acts whose music young people enjoy ironically.
In 2017, the Oxford rockers will follow Lionel Ritchie and Dolly Parton by performing to an audience only familiar with them because their dad played their music in his Vauxhall Cavalier when he picked them up from school.
19-year-old Eleanor Shaw said: “Oh wow, Radiohead, I didn’t know they were still going.
“That’ll be perfect for Sunday afternoon at Worthy Farm, when you’re recovering after being mashed off your tits for a properly big act like Rihanna or Ed Sheeran the night before.
“The good thing about a band like that is they’ve accepted nobody’s interested in their new stuff so they just stick to the hits that you’ve heard in the supermarket.
“What’s that one about it raining? That’s a bit of a singalong number and it’ll be nice to have a band that the whole family can enjoy. Maybe with a nice picnic.”
A spokesman for the band said: “Of course Thom will be doing his trademark ‘funny dance’. It wouldn’t be a Radiohead show without it!”
