  1. The Last Shadow Puppets

    Still tickets for the summer gigs... I keep hovering over the buy button. But I don't like Ally Pally and am already seeing them in April and (probably) at Glastonbury
  2. Headliners 2016

    Yeah, would be weird as fuck to do a 'Glastonbury themed' set if they're not headlining this year. I mean, it's still a pretty weird thing to do in the middle of America's biggest sporting event but there you go 
  3. The Last Shadow Puppets

    Got an email about presale tomorrow morning. Not sure I'm gonna bother with Ally Pally as I've already got tickets for Hackney. Tickets for the summer shows are £35
  4. Euro referendum Glasto disenfranchised?

    I know that referendum turnout is typically abysmally low but this is a big one. If it ends up clashing I'm sure a fair number of potential voters will be left out as it takes some organisation to recognise the clash in advance and register for a postal vote in time
  5. Headliners 2016

    I was trying to make a joke based on your username which I (incorrectly?) assumed referred to the Eminem song. I clearly failed now let's move along
  6. Headliners 2016

    I would listen to 6 Music all day except the radio won't even play my jams 
  7. Headliners 2016

    Damon Albarn's gotta be in with a shout. Played 5 times with Blur, twice headining; headlined with Gorillaz and played with Bobby Womack and Africa Express (and probably something else that I'm forgetting...)
  8. Earth Wind and Fire in da house?

    Loved Bobby Womack. Such a fun way to end the festival 
  9. Radiohead touring in 2016

    They played Just when I saw them at Reading 2009. That was an unexpectedly hit-filled set though. I had spent the weekend being a well-researched Radiohead fan and telling my non-Radiohead-fan friends that there was no way in hell they would play Creep. Then they walked onstage and opened with it.    Maybe they would view a Pyramid headline slot as another such occasion and bring the hits. You never can tell.

    yeah I mean I'd certainly go for that, but really I think he is too big for the Other. I guess it's not beyond the realm of possibility, but I just had a quick scan over the Other headliners from the last few years and he is a fair bit bigger than most of them. Then again, he's only become mainstream big over the last year or so, and he hasn't done much in the UK over that time period, so it's a little hard to tell.    and whoever downvoted my post above: you're a cool guy!

    Kendrick's big enough to headline now. There's virtual consensus from the music press that TPAB was the best album of last year. But he's still accepting sub slots - see BST. The lowest possible billing I can see for him is Other headliner, and that's only if there's a big pull on the Pyramid - Adele or something. I think I'd rather see him headline the Other than sub the Pyramid, just because I always find sub slots a bit weird. There tends to be a mix of people who are there for the act that's actually playing and those that are completely uninterested and just waiting for the headliner. Makes for an odd vibe sometimes, idk. 
  12. Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2016

    Saw them on the Other in 2013 and yeah they were shit. And I was quite looking forward to it as well 
  13. The Last Shadow Puppets

    Got stalls standing tickets for London. Should be good! 
  14. 'Cinch' new tent

    I have to echo the above praise of Decathlon's pop up tents. I've used mine at some very wet festivals and it's never let a drop in. 
  15. The Last Shadow Puppets

    Cool, thanks. I've never been to a gig there. Just google image searched and all the pics had floor seating so wasn't sure if they were taken out for gigs or not
