Radiohead are returning to headline Glastonbury for the third time in 2017, the festival announced today. The rock band first headlined in 1997 and 2003, and came back in 2010 and 2011 for various secret shows.

Fans began speculating that Radiohead would take the stage once again, when their logo appeared on the grass like a grim crop circle near the Pyramid stage on BBC's Glastonbury webcam:

The band will play the opening night of the festival on June 23, 2017. The other headliners haven't been revealed yet, but we do know that Daft Punk unfortunately isn't one of them. After a Reddit user spotted the electronic duo's tag on Lollapalooza's website, rumors circled that they would either headline that festival or Glastonbury. But organizer Emily Eavis shut it down, saying "As ever, 99% of the rumours are untrue!"

Guns 'N' Roses, The Stone Roses, Foo Fighters and Lady Gaga are also rumored to be headlining, but we just have to wait and see. In the meantime, watch We Are Augustines recall a surreal moment when they partied with Radiohead until the wee hours of the morning below:
