  1. Headliners 2016

    I believe that EFestivals had information that she was originally booked to sub, so therefore the festival must have had someone else in mind for the main slot. I think the best guess was the Igit Formally Known Now Known Again as Prince? But she was certainly booked lower and bumped (she subbed T in the Park the same year).   Maybe Riri will do the same..
  2. Headliners 2016

    I've invented a hypothetical situation where Rihanna, because she is in the country anyway, doesn't really have a massive ego, and knows the fee difference won't be that much, has agreed to sub one day. Given the Eavis's recent tactic of booking almost headline sized bands and bumping them up when a headliner disappears (Beyonce and Florence), it could work as a back up if their were worried about one of their booked ones (likely Adele if she was umming and ahing) falls through or decides to break something on stage a few weeks before the festival once again.  I think I am just bored in a low speculation year.

    I would rather they bought Tove Lo (she's on a song on the new album too) along, but what are the chances of that??

      Adele has a new song out today? Coincidence? Also, how many pop stars would use a picture like this for the second (and best song she will likely release for this campaign) single cover? 
  5. LCD Soundsystem....

    Surely we get Dance Yrself Clean?!? :S

    If Glastonbury use up their three bankers (Coldplay, Muse and Radiohead) in one go, who is going to headline for the next 4 years?!?!
  7. Headliners 2016

    "Ha remember that year we thought Muse might sub Coldplay" might go down with "Remember when we debating if Emeli Sande could headline" from last year. Talking of Emeli Sande ... her real name is Adele... maybe there's been some confusion down the line?! 
  8. LCD Soundsystem....

    Fair point. I even saw her there, haha. Maybe Bastille will be in that slot this year then. Ellie I guess is Pyramid sub material now.

    They have given lots the first headliner slots over the years, but there has been a move away from this in recent years I think. Florence was because they were forced to (I thought she thoroughly deserved it outright, given her history with the festival and size) .. but even then they didn't even bump her. Kanye and Beyonce were "new" headliners I guess, but they were massive touring acts already. Its not the same as giving a smaller band like Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead, Muse the bump up. I wouldn't go as far as to say Glastonbury should take lessons from Reading, but I hope Glastonbury continues to do it too. It seems like they are reluctant too these days.   Edit: I forgot Mumfords, maybe it isn't as bad as I thought it was.
  10. LCD Soundsystem....

    They scream Other headliner or sub really. I think Pyramid sub will be saved for the more commercial acts - Bastille, Ellie Goulding, The Weeknd etc 
  11. LCD Soundsystem....

    Shit this really is happening. I haven't been allowing myself the luxury of thinking too seriously they are playing.
  12. LCD Soundsystem....

    I am really worried they will headline Bestival and skip Glastonbury :S I know they played Glastonbury before, but do they have much of an affinity for it?

    You never know, maybe Emily wanted to break the mould of having heritage acts, or acts they already booked in the last few years, and lucky Foals were in the right place at the right time, and were bumped to headliner. I think very unlikely given the fact they didn't bump Florence last year until they had to, and always just want to give the "biggest" bands the slots for a fear of a repeat of 2007 (as if that would ever happen).  I think it's a shame really. Good job on Reading and Leeds taking a risk and bumping acts.

    Bastille must be in with a sub shout.

    Disclosure's agent must be getting one hell of a bonus this year.
