  1. Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2016

    I'd guess Other Sub is the most likely too..   CHVRCHES into LCD would be a bit of a wet dream for me.
  2. Headliners 2016

    Are artists being paid more? They must be from gigs, or at least the labels/management must be (presumably to compensate for the drop in revenue from record sales). So is the Glastonbury ticket price rise to deal with this? Or does the price increase just deal with costs of the festival and the artists are still paid roughly the same, with inflation presumably?

    Could get a good slot on Pyramid, sub or third, in light of "promoting more women"?
  4. Headliners 2016

    Glastonbury is getting increasingly better value music wise as the years ago on  
  5. 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..
  6. 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??
  8. Headliners 2016

      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? 
  9. LCD Soundsystem....

    Surely we get Dance Yrself Clean?!? :S
  10. Headliners 2016

    If Glastonbury use up their three bankers (Coldplay, Muse and Radiohead) in one go, who is going to headline for the next 4 years?!?!
  11. 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?! 
  12. 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.
  13. Headliners 2016

    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.
  14. 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 
  15. LCD Soundsystem....

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