Foo Fighters will be headlining Denmark's Roskilde Festival in 2017, which takes place in the same week as Glastonbury.

Roskilde will take place between June 24 and July 1, meanwhile Glastonbury is on between June 21 and 25.

However, rumours have been circulating that they may also headline Glastonbury, after cancelling in 2015. 

The Roskilde festival's head of programme Anders Wahrén said: “Foo Fighters is undoubtedly one of the biggest rock bands in the world, and we have wanted them back for a long time.

"We’re thrilled that it finally panned out so we can welcome them back to Roskilde Festival for their only Scandinavian show next summer.”

Tickets for Roskilde will go on sale on Tuesday.
