Stevie W was generally considered on the petite side as marquee names go.

Really? I thought he was a huge name for the festival to get considering he doesn't exactly headline overhere a lot

1) imagine dragons - maybe a bit leftfield here but should have a 3rd album out by then. Assuming they are not there this year.

Imagine Dragons are never gonna be big enough to headline Glastonbury. Maybe I'm not the best person to judge because I think they're shite, but they already seem like they're on the wane popularity wise.

Nah, they're definitely shite. Radioactive is alright for a laugh, but the rest is fucking bollocks

I have no reason to think this at all but my guess for 2020 will be three huge acts who are a staple to Glastonbury history - and would probably do it again if they were begged / asked

Coldplay, The Rolling Stones, Blur

until something else come along that's my shout

The Stones in 2013 was a once in a life time moment for me. I don't really want that moment to be diminished if they turn out to be shit the second time round.

Quite a few people predicting a lot of similiar types of bands - a lot of guitars basically and rock/indy. I think after the break the Eavii will want to use 2019 as a refresher with something a bit more mixed, along the lines of -

Fri - Kendrick
Sat - Chilli Peppers
Sun - Beyonce (or some other pop star)

Well most people on here are saying ed sheeran is shit but doesn't stop him being booked. I did caveat it was leftfield though.

I think Ed's good at what he does though, it's just not my style. Imagine Dragons aren't my style, but they're also shit at what they do

Artic monkeys

biffy cyro

 madonna

1st 2 are my confident guess, and madonna could be replaced by Gaga depending on what happens with Gaga this year.

Jesus Christ (Reach out and touch faith or whatever). Did anyone watch / listen to that Depeche Mode live feed tonight? I had a go. 

Sounded like someone hitting a donkey with a wet Royal Wedding (Charles & Di) tea towel whilst wearing a full one man band kit for the first time. Whilst pissed. Fuckaduck. Headliners? 

Sorry @eastynhI tried. X

I don't think The Stones will ever do it again and like you I'd miss it as it was a proper occasion but I think Blur is a very good shout for the 50 years. It will only have been 3 years of actual Glasto fests with Coldplay so I think it will be a no for them although if ever there was a year to bring them back earlier than they really should it's that one.

So it won't be Blur, The Stones or Coldplay then?

Jesus. If radioactive is their best song I don't wanna hear the rest. 

That's a song by an actual band? I thought it was just a jingle from an advert.

My heart dropped when Kendrick did that version of it with them. Man that guy does some shit features.

Florence would presumably have another album out by 2019. Although it would've only been 4 years since she did it, they could probably get away with it by promoting it as her getting the slot on merit. 

Pulp managed it with only a 3 year gap.

I think Elton or Macca would be good for a big 50th celebration.

Two of Elton/Macca/Blur and a more current headliner would be good. Or obviously all of those 3 with Elton doing the legends' slot.

He once in a while does shit features, the vast majority are at least decent and a good number are brilliant. Then there's that one, which eclipses everything else.

Don't think Biffy will be big enough to headline in 2019. They haven't really got into that permanent headliner status like the likes of Muse, Arctic Monkeys etc, I'd say they're on the decline after the last album though I'm happy to be proved wrong.

Yeah no way are Biffy Clyro headlining in 2019. Glastonbury has made comments about them being too small to do it in the past and they're only getting smaller.

Going the same way as The Libertines, could see them subbing in the future but never headlining.
