Well I wasn't expecting that, but excellent news nonetheless! Unless another festival has nabbed them on an exclusive they've got to be a decent contender for a WH headline slot one night surely? Glasto seems like the most ideal festival for them in the UK 

Aye, I don't see them doing it for the money, but could be wrong. WH would be perfect for them I rate, Sunday preferably. Maybe subbing it on the Friday. The Friday hip hop slot's pretty much dead now isn't it? Skepta was midday last year and can't think if anyone did it the year before.

Mary J Blige kind of did it the year before although obviously not your traditional hip-hop act (did have Kanye headlining though so maybe only one is allowed per year...). it still exists though, and i guess ATCQ could be a contender (although a WH headline slot would obviously do them much better, although for the sake of clashes, i'd take the Pyramid set in a heartbeat)

WH headline slot on the Sunday night at the same time as Dave and the Foos would be fucking marvellous, what a way to end the festival (and a quick passage into SE corner)

I would love to see Tribe headline West Holts, probably my ideal act for that stage out of any going. The new album is a work of art and will be seen as a hip hop classic in years to come so it would be great to see them put in a Glastonbury performance on the back of it.

Have to agree with most commenting. ATCQ on the Sunday night vs the Foos would be the best way to end the festival.

Nightmare scenario would see them up against Radiohead on the Friday night, but if they subbed it on the Fri, then that could potentially be one of the best sub+head combos I've ever seen.

Make it happen Eavaiiiii!!!!!!!

Also, can't see them doing any exclusives. If it's the last tour ever and a world tour at that, they'd be playing in so many places and such huge venues, they'd rack up a shit ton of cash regardless

Tribe for WH Sat, then Kraftwerk on Sunday. Accept no substitutes.

Justice Friday. WH is the main event.

Kraftwerk Friday, Tribe Saturday, Justice Sunday :) 

 

just to to be difficult 

That would be really difficult cos Kraftwerk are at the Royal Albert Hall on the Friday night! Think they're more likely to take a break and play the Sunday night

christ imagine if the WH headliners were Tribe, Justice and Kraftwerk *drool*. inevitable clashes be damned, that'd be hard to be pulled away from

(but seriously, for the sake of clashes, get Tribe in the Friday Pyramid slot. plz)

I'd be all over ATCQ on the Sunday! Only getting a Sunday ticket (if succesful) this year, so would be perfect. Their new album is unbelievable, so much better than i expected. Anyone reckon they'd bring Busta along with them? Not usually a massive fan of his, but he sounds decent on this album.

Don't think that would matter?

I would've thought so. He's very much a part of/an extension of the group.

I mean as his backing band. Tho looking further into it it's not all their future shows so it shouldn't really matter.

Anderson Paak is supporting Bruno Mars on his UK & European tour. Surely makes him more likely to  play (I really hope so). Tour finishes June 14th in Switzerland.

Had tickets to see Chance this Saturday in Manchester, absolutely gutted that he cancelled the rest of his tour. Got some making up to do after that!

Is he not a bit too big for WH though? High Other my guess.

He could headline it but I think a daytime Pyramid slot or, as you say, high Other would be more appropriate. The bookers of the cancelled shows say he's back next year so maybe that's him doing summer shows.

I think his music has got a bit boring since finding Jesus but it's his life and I'd love to see him do well.

Anybody got anything by Chance they can recommend?

Tried getting into his 'Coloring book' album on Spotify but there were too many features to be able to get into him. Is that all he's released?

3 mixtapes, 10 day, acid rap and colouring book.  For my money Acid rap is the classic work.  Each represents a different aspect of his growing up, from schoolboy rebel to teen experimentation through to fatherhood.  Shitload of collab work as well.

This is my go to record when I'm tripping, I'd recommend it for about the 2 hour mark.
