  1. Headliners 2019

    Ha ha ! Whoever told you graphic designers are well paid?! Obviously we do it for the love and the high-fives!
  2. Glasto 2020: Passing the torch?

    Its a little distressing to hear about people who think that being 40 (40?!?!?!?!?) is somehow a barrier to enjoying Glastonbury. I've now enjoyed 4 festivals in my 40s and find I love it more and more each year. I don't think we need any baton passing, the door is open to anyone (who can get tickets) and I want to see everyone from babes in arms to seniors at the festival. And if you think you're getting too old, I'm taking my folks to their first festival this year (No 6 as we couldn't get tickets for G for them). They are far from what I call hard-core ravers, but they're going with the right spirit and I think they'll have a great time. The spirit of inclusivity is what makes these things so wonderful.

    This is an exquisitely ludicrous statement. DM just sold out the Olympic Stadium - I struggle to think of any metric of measuring a band's 'size' than their ability to sell concert tickets, gold records or not. There is a massive audience at Worthy Farm for them and if they were to headline, they would win over a whole bunch of new fans.

    Jerry Lee Lewis, headline the Pyramid? Legend slot possibly... Amazingly, he is still doing gigs.
  5. Lineup 2019

    A lot of hate for this here, but I would be totally stoked if this was the line-up. Steely Dan alone would have me over the moon (though maybe a WH headliner...?). The Chvrches / Wolf Alice clash is a bugger though.
  6. Stolen acoustic guitar from my tent at Glasto

    There isn't anything wrong with bringing a guitar - it is after all a music fest. Admittedly, a lot of us have lived through the 'Wonderwall' era of busking (and the 'Walk of Life' era that preceded it) and it has scarred many of us. Back in the 90s before the SE corner and Silver Hayes, gathering around a camp fire with an acoustic and some tins was a common way to see in the early hours.

    How horrible! Sadly, some scum still in attendance... I hope you find it.

    Nope. Still going full guns in the showmanship / musicianship dept. His band rock hard and he puts on a hell of a show. He is in the same league as the Stones and the Who, not Bazza, ELO and Lionel (as much as I loved all 3 of those sets).
  9. Who should reform?

    I's probably avoid it tbh. Nothing to do with Abba, but the crowds could be unbearable. Especially if it was Sunday and the chair w*nkers were in attendance. I'd put up with it for Zep or Floyd though.
  10. Who should reform?

    No Mamma Mia? No Super Trouper? No Voulez-Vous?
  11. Headliners 2019

    I wonder how long this thread will be before the announcement...
  12. Who should reform?

    I was there in '11 and certainly enjoyed some satay chicken... So I'm guessing not. If he/they played, I'd be tempted to get down on the barrier with a bucket of KFC just to wind him up.
  13. Who should reform?

    That's specially for battleborn over on the headliners thread
  14. Who should reform?

    Given Michael's recent comments about a possible 2018 comeback... Whom would you most like to see reform and play the festival? GNR and the Stone Roses all seemed unlikely, until it actually happened. And now sadly, Wham! in the legends spot is an impossibility. Personally, I'd like to see Talk Talk headline JP, playing Spirit of Eden in full, but that's never going to happen....
  15. Headliners 2019

    Apart from all the arguments that they're not big enough etc... Aren't SHM no longer a going concern? They broke up 4 years ago - are there plans to reunite and release more material? If not, you've got to admit the chances of them headlining are, erm, slim?
