I think I'm right in saying every major music artist Emily follows on Instagram has played Glastonbury.....except Madonna!

Must be a good bet for 2019.

 

well, if that's right, efests will have listed another future headliner over a year in advance (tho this time I might even have the name for the right year :P)

She's an act that surely there could be no doubt regarding her headlining chops, she's fucking Madonna for Christ's sake! Although as others have noted I'd have some huge concerns regarding her setlist choices. Would give her the first 5-6 songs and if she hasn't brought the hits I'd wander off.

Arriving later would probably be the safer bet....

and the safest is not to arrive at all. :P

The 1975, Arctic Monkeys, Madonna?

that looks just about right to me, and i really wouldn't be surprised to see it.

A 'new' headliner, a staple, and not-played before mega-star.

I'd be nowhere near any of them. :lol:

The 1975...... Christ are they that big now?!!

not sure they're quite there yet, but at the mo they're probably the most obvious 'new' act to get to be headliner.

Foals are ahead of them as someone who's not headlined, but struggle to class as 'new'. They could do it instead of the Arctics and it wouldn't seem much different at the top of the bill, I reckon.

The 1975 are a bigger band than Foals now, though surely they'll do reading first

Must be mis-reading this. You aren't claiming Foals are on a level with the Arctics? Surely not.

ah right okay. Think there's a bit of difference but yeah the demos are probably similar enough for Glastonbury to be happy with.

I was meaning they've been around for a long time and are an established 'big' band like the arctics, not that they were the same 'big'.

Whereas The 1975 are a new 'big' band.

(It makes sense to me, even if it doesn't to you)

that was in my thinking as well.

If you were to swap out one of 1975, arctics, and madonna for foals, it makes the most sense (to me, anyway) to replace the arctics.

I'd love Foals to get the nod but I'm not sure 1 more album will be enough for them to make the jump from sub to headliner. 1975 seems like a good shout for the new act, if they go down that route. 

1975, Madonna and Arctics is plausible at this stage I guess.

no.

absolutely zero chance they headline in 2019.

I don't think they'd be first choice, but the fest can only book who's available - and I reckon they've got to remain a possible because of that.

crikey - I hope they fall out and split before 2019 just to be sure
