Glastonbury 2017: The dates have been revealed

You've only just finished washing this year's mud off

The mud isn’t even dry on your ruined converse, you’ve still got slight tinnitus and your work productivity has been pretty much non-existent. After all, Glasto is barely over. But even thought bits of it are probably still coming back to you, the organisers have already announced the dates for Glastonbury 2017.

If you’re keeping your fingers crossed for tickets then you’ll want to book the 21st – 25th of June off work. You can register to buy tickets here.

As yet it’s unclear whether the festival will be taking place in its traditional location, Worthy Farm. Founder Michael Evis is in talks with the Longleat estate about moving the festival to their premises, but nothing has been confirmed yet. So you probably don’t want to book any train tickets quite yet. 
Bookies are already making predictions for who’ll be appearing, with a reunited Guns n Roses as front runners, alongside Rihanna. Other favourites include Radiohead, despite the fact that they failed to show up this year, and the Stone Roses. Whoever it is will have some big shoes to fill after Adele had half the festival in tears with her amazing performance of Someone Like You.
William Hill’s full list of acts they reckon will be appearing is:
Guns N’ Roses (8/11)
Kasabian (5/4)
Radiohead, The Stone Roses (2/1)
Foo Fighters (3/1)
Ed Sheeran (4/1)
Manic Street Preachers (5/1)
Red Hot Chili Peppers (6/1)
Rihanna (7/1)
Bruce Springsteen, Calvin Harris, Mumford And Sons (8/1)
So if you like the sound of that lot you’d better get registered, and make sure you’re somewhere with a super speedy wi-fi connection when the tickets are released. Or you could always skip the mud and watch it on telly from the comfort of your own sofa.
