LONDON (AP) - Alternative rock group Radiohead will play one of the headline slots at next year’s Glastonbury Festival.

Glastonbury organizer Emily Eavis confirmed Thursday on Instagram that “Radiohead will be back at Worthy Farm” - the festival site in southwest England.

The band’s spokesman says Radiohead will play the main Pyramid Stage on the festival’s opening night, Friday June 23.

Rumors had been circulating since Wednesday, when the bear’s head logo of the band appeared in a crop circle at the Glastonbury site.

Radiohead previously played Glastonbury - Britain’s leading summer music festival - in 1997 and 2003. The band released its ninth studio album, “A Moon Shaped Pool,” this year.

Guitarist Ed O’Brien recently told BBC radio that Glastonbury was “the mother of all festivals” and Radiohead’s “spiritual home.”
