    2019 Headliners

    Is there a chance The Cure won't headline the Pyramid? Two "Oldies But Goodies" acts seem excessive. Would like someone on top of their game, like Arctic Monkeys, to join Macca and Stormzy.

    2019 Headliners

    Never been a big fan of The Beatles, so I think I have to go for Hot Chip. Missing their set in 2015 is one of my big Glastonbury regrets. Was supposed to see Florence and Hot Chip, but then Dave Grohl had to go and break his leg and my friend was intent on seeing Florence. If I go to Paul McCartney I would just be waiting for Hey Jude and Let it be and not really caring for all the other songs.

    The 1975 2020

    Their first albums sounded to me like One Direction with guitars, and I struggled to understrand why anyone over the age of 18 were enjoying them. Their new album seems to getting great reviews, so I have to listen to it, but judging by their latest single on Spotify it won't be up my alley.

    The National

    I would go to Mad Cool if I were you. They seem determined to top their insane lineup this year, and I doubt they will repeat the logistical hiccups that plagued day 1. The one thing I would recommend is getting an AirBnB close to the festival site. The long bus trip back to Madrid centre at 4 in the morning three days in a row was tough! And to keep it on topic, my ranking of their albums: High Violet Boxer Trouble Will Find Me Sleep Well Beast Alligator Sad Songs for Dirty Lovers The National And their two best songs are Afraid of Everyone and Bloodbuzz Ohio

    The National

    Really hoping they'll return to Glastonbury next year. They wasted their chance last year. Too many new songs that people didn't know. Their shows just a few months later, when Sleep Well Beast was out and they had actually learned to play the songs well live, were something else entirely.

    so, Stormzy then...?

    Bit weird to have a headliner from a genre that only the english care about, but the booking's more exciting than the 59 and 76 year olds who are rumoured to headline the other nights.
  7. What surprised me reading Twitter was all the people talking about having multible tabs or windows open, and not refreshing automatically. No wonder they didn't get tickets. One window on one device, and refresh it as often as possible to increase likelihood of hitting an open spot! What chance do you have if you only refresh every 20 seconds? And if you manage to get in, another tab/window auto-refreshing might ruin everything. What also boggled my mind where all the people complaining on Twitter/Instagram about not getting tickets, whilst the sale was ongoing. How do you have time for that? Got tickets for what will be my my sixth Glastonbury. Turned off Wifi, hooked my computer up to router via cable, one tab in Chrome and got lucky. Has worked for me every time.

    My hands have gone numb.

    Reading this thread is torture, but I can't make myself stay away. I wish I didn't enjoy Glastonbury so much. Wouldn't have to deal with this stress almost every October.
  10. The amount of excellent bands playing festivals this summer is nothing like I've ever seen before. Just look at the line-up for this "random" festival in Madrid: And that doesn't include bands like The National and Arcade Fire, who are also playing festivals in Europe this summer. Such a shame there's no Glastonbury this year. Considering the bands that are touring it could have been really special. Just felt like having a little rant. Even though I've booked trips to other festivals and shows, it still really stings to know that I won't visit Worthy Farm this year.

    The National

    Now, after several listens and too much wine, I think there's no doubt that Empire Line is my favorite song on this album, followed by The System Only Dreams and Walk it back. The last minutes of Empire Line is bloody gorgeous. Also love Matt singing "Until everything is less insane I’m mixing weed with wine" on Walk it back

    The National

    They are my favorite band and I like the new album well enough, but I find myself harboring an intense hatred for Turtleneck. Not only because it's so damn basic for a band with so many amazing songs, but also because they decided to close their effing Pyramid set with it. Walk it back is growing on me though, after not liking it at Glastonbury.

    Arcade Fire

    Have listened to it two times now. Can't stand all the Abba and disco-vibes, and Infinite Content and Infinite_Content is awful beyond belief in my opinion. I didn't expect much after they released Everything Now, but will probably listen a bit to Creature Comfort. Kudos to them for trying new things and not just repeating past glories, though.

    The War on Drugs

    Really enjoying all the new tracks, especially Strangest Thing. And the 11 minute long Thinking of a Place is really something. Hoping for more songs like Red Eyes on the new album though.

    Radiohead Headlining 2017

    This Springsteen stuff reminds me of the 5-6 times I've seen Pearl Jam in arenas. PJ fans are just as crazy and show up just as early, with the same number system. What surprised me the most was how many people were watching literally every single one of Pearl Jam's shows an entire tour, travelling from city to city for several weeks. Gotta admire the commitment. I really love how at Glastonbury you can show up an hour before a major headliner and get a great spot in the pit, then drink some rum (which you wouldn't be able to take into an arena) to get the proper buzz.
