[RUMOURS] Daft Punk tipped headline Glastonbury 2017

Daft Punk are being tipped for a headline slot at Glastonbury 2017, for why? Well the band announced back in 2011 that the band won't be touring until 2017, with the forum at Coachella stating that they'll play some shows in 2013 (which they did) and a show at MSG (which they did).

Also the Reddit section devoted to the band also states that the band would be touring in 2017, or won't be touring at all. With the Glastonbury organisers already stating that the 2016 and 2017 headliners have been booked there's no wonder there is speculation around high profile acts.

The year is 1997 and Daft Punk is just so hot right now. They have 2 albums under their belt and decide to release a 'live' album title, "Alive 1997". Moving on. The year is now 2007. Daft Punk has released 4 albums, 2 since "Alive 1997", and the duo embarks on one of the most talked about tours in electronic music history, "Alive 2007". This is their last major tour to this date. Now the year is 2016. Daft Punk has released 1 album since Alive 2007. Rumours begin surfacing of a new album in the works, theorized to d├ębut on Tidal, which they are partial owners of. Fast forward to 2017. Hypothetically, Daft Punk releases said “new album” and embarks on Alive 2017 after releasing 2 albums since Alive 2007.

But one question remains, will we see Daft Punk at Glastonbury? I think so, if they were releasing something in 2016 they would've already announced something, so I can't see their performance being in 2016, rather 2017 - after all - 2007 was their last 'Alive Tour'. It just makes perfect sense for them to do it in 2017.
