  1. Alanis Morrisette

    Saw her on tour a couple of years back (promoting a new album, she is still making music). She knows exactly what fans want and I think she did nearly the entirety of Jagged Little Pill in her set still. She was brilliant, got an amazing voice. Still managed to conjure up some of that old rage. Would be a brilliant middle of the Pyramid type act I think. 
  2. Headliners 2016

    Ha I might have been paraphrasing, I can't fully remember. Might have just been "the bill is set". Which makes it sound like he has heard that at least the headliners, and maybe the legends slot, is booked. 
  3. Headliners 2016

    Rod Stewart was on BBC breakfast this morning and he said he (+ The Faces) was not booked for Glastonbury next year. "As far as I know, next year's bill is set in stone", but he said he would love to do it in 2017 and they should call him. 
  4. Headliners 2016

    Also fasting selling gig is surely determined by the internet servers not the amount of people buying the tickets. What a meaningless statistic. 
  5. Adele/Muse/Coldplay say DM

    She played some academies (not stadiums), got ill and cancelled the rest of the tour. I guess her biggest gig will have been at the Royal albert hall? I don't know how many people were at The Brits as it is all tables and stuff isn't it? She is also clearly nervous in that and her vocal is off compared to other versions of the song... backing up her points about nerves.
  6. Headliners 2016

    Are Coldplay big Years and Years fans?!
  7. tickets and how it could be done better

    Interestingly today was the Harry Potter priority ticket sale. They are using a queue system, which seems to be working well with around 35000 people online initially. I think the main sale is Friday. I doubt the numbers will reach that of Glastonbury, but it could be an indicator that large numbers can be processed in a queue successfully. It would involve some horrific waiting though..
  8. Who popped your Glastonbury cherry?

    Another one for Rolf here. I think I would still rather see him than Kate Nash or Beady Eye..
  9. Taylor Swift

    Still bitter that Tove Lo wasn't booked for Glastonbury last year (almost as much as Taylor her self). Her performance with Taylor as one of this week's "please welcome to the stage..." has excellent 'drunk girls at a hen party' vibes :   http://www.billboard.com/articles/columns/pop-shop/6738465/taylor-swift-and-tove-lo-sing-talking-body-in-atlanta-1989-tour    
  10. Your 2016 Wish List

    The Weeknd owes us a performance for cancelling a few festivals back. Maybe he has graduated from WH headliner to Other Headliner or sub? Pyramid sub?? Am I overstating his popularity? 
  11. LCD Soundsystem....

        I hope the organisers do and pop LCD up against Muse, easy choice for headliner one night. 
  12. LCD Soundsystem....

    Other Stage headliners?? Not sure they are *quite* big enough ... they don't have "comeback" value so much in the UK, and subbed at their peak. West Holts headliner perhaps? Would be incredible. 
  13. I know lots of people already talking about this but...

    She offered Sia a bucket load of cash for this belter, but didn't get it. So there's hope for the album   
  14. Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2016

      I love them. After being stuck at the back of The Stones for an hour and the atmosphere going a bit stale, we headed off and managed to catch their whole set. Along with about 50 other people... I suspect they were put in that slot because no other bands wanted to face The Stones. When I saw them in JP in 2011 it was rammed. I think their popularity has dipped (along with their quality) and it shows no sign of going back up with album 3. But they appear to be massive in Europe which seems to pay the recording and ridiculous video bills.    I expect middle other if they do play also
  15. I know lots of people already talking about this but...

    She once had a rant about how she didn't like paying 50% tax when lots of things in the country are shit to a magazine so now she is the devil. I am sure she was  just being silly/not thinking and at least she is paying the fucking tax. How many other Pyramid headliners have just been complete tax dogers I wonder.
