You’ve got your Coachella and your Bonnaroo and about a thousand other festivals every year, but very few can approach The Glastonbury Festival of Contemporary Performing Arts.

Held every year at Worthy Farm, Pilton, Somerset, England, the yearly show not only highlights the best of new music, but also fills its ranks with some of the best veteran artists in the world, including the classic artists slot that has given huge, later career, boosts to artists like Dolly Parton and Lionel Richie.

Earlier today, the initial lineup for Glastonbury 2017 was announced with veterans Radiohead and Foo Fighters taking two of the three headliners spots. Ed Sheeran has the third. The Foo Fighters are playing a makeup date after being scheduled for the 2015 show but having to cancel when Dave Grohl fell off of a stage and broke his ankle.

The list for performers is Radiohead, Foo Fighters, and Ed Sheeran as this year’s headliners.

Added are Katy Perry, The National, Lorde, The xx, Phoenix, Justice, Barry Gibb, Chic, The Avalanches, The Flaming Lips, Father John Misty, HAIM, Solange, Run the Jewels, Alt-J, Future Islands, Anderson .Paak & The Free Nationals, Goldfrapp, Laura Marling, Warpaint, Mark Lanegan, Ride, First Aid Kit, Royal Blood, DJ Shadow, Angel Olsen, Thundercat, Sampha, BadBadNotGood, London Grammar, and Wild Beasts.

Also playing are Major Lazer, Dizzee Rascal, Biffy Clyro, Sasha & John Digweed, Boys Noize, Boy Better Know, Stormzy, Glass Animals, Tove Lo, Kris Kristofferson, George Ezra, Ani DiFranco, Halsey, Martha Wainwright, Kaiser Chiefs, Metronomy, British Sea Power, Moderat, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Lisa Hannigan, Birdy, Clean Bandit, Temples, Kate Tempest, and Sleaford Mods.

More acts still to be announced in the coming weeks.
