Who's Touring Around Glastonbury 2017?

I'd rather they didn't get a Pyramid slot - their music works so much better at night IMO, and they're not big enough to headline the Pyramid. Park headliner? 

headlined John Peel last time round which is a bigger slot than headlining the Park so i can't see them taking that step down. reckon they could do something similar to Chvrches and end up subbing Other which i think would suit them well. hell, they could even end up headlining it if this album takes off as much as their last one did

I'd be surprised if they manage to progress upwards. They were kinda 'flavour of the month' and I feel as if people had already stopped caring by the time the tour ended.

Really not a lot to them either. Bad band.

well they're headlining that (albeit, small) Australian festival so festival bookers must think there's something of worth left in them come this second album. i'd be surprised myself if they took any kind of dip position wise. think this new album will push them right back up to where they left off

Is Park really a step down from JP? I'm not sure it is, but I'm a relative Glastonbury newbie with 2014 (and both years since then) being my first one...

I'm definitely not in that camp, they're brilliant IMO. Still listening to their first album a fair bit. 

I can see the long wait producing quite a lot of hype, which I reckon/hope they'll live up to.

Well, the same festival had Bloc Party headline this year and they're the patron saint of bad comebacks. Not saying they'll implode or anything but I can't see them going anywhere from here and could just end up early evening Other.

Yeah it pretty much is. I mean I dunno if it's a conscious decision because they have different bookers but you generally get bigger acts headlining John Peel than Park.

My head has been turned inside out by the revelation that someone has listened to London Grammar's album since 2014. :P

But yeah I'm not sure how safe it is for quick rising bands to go away for a couple of years anymore, I'm sure you can think of examples of bands falling foul of that yourself as it happens so often nowadays. And with London Grammar, it's not like they gathered a huge hardcore following over their lifespan - I feel like you're much more likely to hear "remember London Grammar? What happened to them?" than "holy shit where is London Grammar LP2?"

Yaaas! Love this thread.

Although my excitement was tempered somewhat when I realised it was 'Beth Hart' not 'Bret Hart' in the original post.

As in The Hitman?

Ha, I've definitely said a number of times "when are London Grammar going to release a second album"? But maybe I'm in a minority...

Real Estate are playing Vida Festival, the weekend after Glastonbury.

Ah god I hope they're booked. Would make a great midday Park act

So you can whinge that you missed them cos you weren't up in time to trek over there?

By midday I meant mid music day, as in 5ish. But ey, saw all the morning acts I really wanted to see (Syrian Orchestra and Car Seat Headrest) this year so don't know WHAT you're talking about

Green Day are headlining Southside and Hurricane festivals,  the same weekend as Glastonbury but they are a long shot anyway.

both Bon Iver and The National have been announced for Eaux Claires festival which takes place June 16-17. considering it looks quite likely that Bon Iver will be coming over, maybe they can convince The National to make the long overdue trip to the farm as well

Interesting that that festival has moved from August to June - I do wonder whether big touring bands on their line-up will fly across the pond in the intervening week

I think Nick Monaco is highly likely to be in Europe next summer

Surely The XX would have finally completed their third album by next summer (was/is due this year but has all gone quiet) and will be out touring it. Though given they've headlined Other and are most definitely a night time band, not sure where they'd fit.

was thinking it might be too soon for them to return Other again, but fuck it, Chemical Brothers do it every four years like clockwork so when it's clearly the most appropriate slot for em then why not? headlining Other and Bestival next year i reckon

Elton John's doing his usual June gigs

He is but there is something about the gap between when he is doing them, that might happen year on year but he has defo got a date on that Saturday leaving him free to play Friday or Sunday....and I doubt it is Friday.

Legends slot? Would be huge if so. 

i doubt it. he's played these shows around Glastonbury for at least the last two years and not played the festival. obviously can't write it off entirely as he'll surely do it someday, but i think it's gonna be Diana Ross next year
