Would be too awesome for anything ever to happen again. It'd cause the singularity.

I'm still waiting hopefully on news of David Byrne's next tour.

I got an email from him just yesterday about a new album. Nothing about touring tho. :(

As for Talking Heads reforming, I just can't ever see it happening. My take on things is that Chris and Tina feel too insulted by some of what David did to ever want to work with him again, and while Talking Heads didn't make them particularly rich - they made more money from Maria Carey sampling TTC, so I was told personally by Chris - I get the impression they're more than comfortable to be needing the money they'd get from reforming.

Same.


I wasn't around at the time, but yeah, that's the impression I've got from what I've read. Noone feels the need to reform, and there's too much bad blood to be prepared to without something major happening to change things.

i personally think the Friday band (i.e. the one i believe he's just booked) will be a modern band - i.e. Florence or Bloc Party (why it took him so long to get either of these bands is another story - i'd happily be proven wrong)
i still think the Sunday headliner will be Radiohead. oh god please. if not them, Portishead seems to make sense (they'd definitely make sense after Sigur Ros, anyway)

I don't listen to them for that reason, but I think it'd be a massive coup, so much so, I'd happily have them as headliners so the majority are happy and Bestival's image is made even better. Because it's the best festival (After glasto, but I've never been) around!

Got no problem with that! The funds can go to Daft Punk, Arcade Fire and PULP.

With big top, M83, The Knife, Above & Beyond and Animal Collective as big top headliners........

My dream line-up there.

Thinking, if it is a dance headliner (provided New Order don't class as the dance headliner) who could it be?

Deadmau5
Daft Punk

who else? I can't see anyone that it could be so all I can think is that it may be a band.

Haha, I saw that Kim Jong il thing a while back. Too good! Totally forgot about Moby too.

Leftfield could be a possibility I guess but they're not quite a impressive as they would have been as an announcement back in 2010.

New Daft Punk will be out in June at the earliest but I'd imagine it'll be later than that.

You beat me to it! :P

We haven't speculated Daft Punk in an hour, HOW ABOUT WE SPECULATE AGAIN!?

Maybe the 'Oh shit' was Daft Punk changing their minds.. ;)
