The Foo Fighters are clearly making a concerted return to live performing. Following their announcement of their first U.S. show in roughly two years last month, Dave Grohl and the band have announced that they will be a headlining act at Glastonbury 2017, joining Radiohead as the only two bands officially confirmed for the festival. The Foo Fighters previously had to pull out of 2015’s festival following Grohl sustaining a serious leg inquiry after falling off the stage at a Swedish gig. The band will also be playing a surprise show in Somerset before playing the festival.

Other probable-to-rumored entertainment at Glastonbury, which takes place from June 21-25, includes The Avalanches (who tweeted an unverified confirmation that they will be playing) and Wiley, as well as Depeche Mode and Ed Sheeran.

Oh, and they’re also live streaming a surprise show right now, which is taking place in the English town of Frome. Watch that below via Consequence of Sound.
