The Pyramid Stage at Glastonbury
Eagle-eyed Glastonbury fans have noticed there’s an unusual band name on the bill at this year’s festival – and they’re convinced they already know who is behind the alias.
The set times for the spectacular event were released by organisers on Tuesday, allowing revellers to eagerly start planning which acts they want to go and see.
But some have spotted an unfamiliar group – The Churnups – are scheduled to play the Pyramid Stage on Friday, ahead of Royal Blood and headline act Arctic Monkeys.
While some have been stumped at just who The Churnups could be, many suspect that its actually the English rock band, Pulp.

So guessing that The Churnups (Friday night) on the Glasto schedule = Pulp. To churn up or agitate or pulp...

ChurnUps? Churn something up or else you could just Pulp it?

Famed for their hits Common People and Disco 2000, Pulp isn’t officially on the line-up for this year’s Glastonbury, although they have many festival dates across summer.
Could the group be about to surprise festival-goers with a secret set?
Alas, Pulp isn’t the only group that fans have guessed could be performing.
Foo Fighters have also been thrown into the mix, with one pointing out that lead singer and guitarist Dave Grohl used to be in a band called Churn.
So Dave Grohl used to be in a band called Churn?

The American rock band are also dropping a brand new album in June, titled But Here We Are, and coincidentally have a huge Glastonbury-sized hole in their touring schedule.
Consider us intrigued.
