    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Thought I'd start a thread especially for this kind of stuff as there isn't really a dedicated place for it all and so they seem to get posted in various random threads across the forum, and I often end up missing stuff entirely. I know there's the 'Got any gigs coming up?' thread over in Discussions but it often gets buried or forgotten about. SO... New tour been announced? Post it here. Want to talk about upcoming gigs but there isn't a pre-existing thread for said band? Get that in here too. Post tour posters if you can so people can see full details of the tours. Also, help out efestivals by using the ticket links provided by this site (Shop > Tickets at the top of the page). Maybe this'll work - maybe it'll just fall off. Let's see. Currently very excited about the upcoming Cloud Nothings/The Hotelier tour in December that was announced the week just gone. Very rare that two bands I love so much do this kind of tour together so this is gonna be ace. Already secured my ticket for the Manchester date. On a similar joint venture, At the Drive In are touring in March with Death From Above as support. Bit on the pricey side so waiting it out a little before I commit, but if ATDI are in a good mood then this should be a great tour.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    I think the problem is that any act willing to do it is gonna be one undoubtedly past their prime/in need of the Glastonbury boost rather than a currently popular act and so it's kind of dead from the get-go. It'd be nice if they could sway some more current acts to do it but why would they want to play to a half empty Other field at 11am when they can do a better higher slot later in the day? It was a nice idea but so far it's been pretty unspectacular and I can see them getting rid of it next year, or at least just not making a big deal of it/keeping it a secret like they have the previous two years.

    I do like them but agree that they're probably being overhyped a little. I thought they were a bit of a joke band when I first heard stuff like Mother way back when. Colossus is brilliant though so I hope there are a few more big stormers like that on the album.

    Kanye west confirmed

    First confirmed Kanye show right? 100% won't be at Glastonbury and I also struggle to see where they'd fit in on the UK festival scene at all as I don't think this collab (or more precisely, Cudi) is as big of a deal here as it is in the US, but good to see that it's hitting the road anyway. Would prefer a Kanye solo tour of course but if Cudi must come along I'm all for that too as the album really grew on me over time.

    2019 Headliners

    Obviously I can’t say how much Mumfords got paid for their headline set but they were (albeit briefly) one of the hottest acts in the world and were without a doubt big enough to do it, which is just where The 1975 are/will be imo.
  10. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Only thing being it’s been a few years since a band has had such a huge rise in stardom/popularity (Mumfords being the last one) which is why no headliners of their stature have been booked. Their new album will undoubtedly be huge and the only way I see Glastonbury not getting them to headline is if they’re at Reading/Leeds instead, or if Glastonbury already had their 3 mega acts lined up. I’d initially thought they may have done a Foals and headlined R/L and sub Glastonbury but I think theylll be too big for that come next year (unless they take the sub position purely to be at Glastonbury).
  11. FloorFiller

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Not sure about Mumfords returning so soon in a lower slot. Think they can milk a few festival headline slots elsewhere before they do that. Maybe some kind of secret set though perhaps similar to The Killers last year. George Ezra will almost certainly return I imagine. Third down the Pyramid I'd say.

    2018 New Music

    Just got round to listening to the new Oh Sees album. So proggy and all the better for it. Also really digging the new Foxing album. Takes their usual melodramatic overblown emo sound to a whole new level.

    This is brilliant. Whole thing is catchy as hell.

    Vampire Weekend

    I duno... Alt-J have more of an electronic element to their music which I think lends itself to an Other headline slot (or at least what the bookers seem to be getting for that slot in recent years). Vampire Weekend don't really seem like an Other headliner to me, and I agree that they'll most likely end up skipping Glastonbury in favour of headlining another smaller festival(s). Fingers crossed though as I'm definitely hoping to catch them on tour at some point.

    2019 Headliners

    Although I'm sure it'd go down well regardless, Kendrick doesn't have the back catalogue of hits that Kanye does to really pull of a stop-gap greatest hits set. Think it'd be a more exciting headliner if he was doing it off the back of a brand new album. Also I just want another Kendrick album. Kendrick, McCartney and Madonna (or Fleetwood) seems far too good to be true, especially with it not even being the big 50, so I'd expect one, two or even three of those to be the following year instead what with them all being such big bookings.
  16. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Kendrick + McCartney would be a great pair, so much so that I'd hope the third is something like The 1975 so I don't have to be at the Pyramid all three nights. I'm gonna assume Kendrick would have a new album out by then as still touring off the back of Damn. would be a bit shite/tired right?

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    I believe there has been info placing The Streets as either a Other headliner or Pyramid sub for next year. Other headliner makes the most sense to me and Chemical Brothers did both Glastonbury and Bestival in 2015 so I wouldn’t be surprised to see the same happen here.
  18. FloorFiller

    Vampire Weekend

    Definitely one of my most anticipated albums of this year but I'm unsure of them returning bigger than ever. Maybe I'm underestimating just how popular they were/are but I think the five year gap between albums may have stalled them a little. Pyramid sub may be ambitious (although excellent if it did happen), but back doing third down would do me just fine.
  19. FloorFiller

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    I don't think so. Think this album is gonna blow up and come next year he'll be too big of a prospect to stick on the Other stage, and tbh I think Glastonbury will probably stick to it's guns of very rarely booking huge American hip hop acts as I'm sure they're largely too expensive and rarely need the exposure Glastonbury provides as an alternative to big bucks.

    2018 New Music

    For anybody champing at the bit for new Frank Ocean, this guy Choker does a pretty good job of sounding like Blonde/Endless era Frank, and his new album Honeybloom is brilliant. Some might be put off by his blatant soundalike-ness but I think there's enough range here to be able to see past it:

    2018 New Music

    Can't say I've ever given Travis Scott much of a chance as I'd always assumed he was a bit shit but Astroworld is phenomenal. Even at an hour it felt relatively short as it's all bangers. YG's album that came out today is also very good, although it's hard to see it being anything other than completely overshadowed by Travis.
  22. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Think they’re more likely to go the inevitable way of Biffy and maybe get one more stab at topping R/L before dropping back down to smaller festivals. They’d need some kind of career boost by releasing a stormer of an album or something to remains/be seen as a major headliner imo, cause at the moment they’re on a bit of a downward trend.
  23. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Said it before but I just don’t see it happening for Foals now, or at least not so soon. I think they’ve lost a lot of momentum and would need a pretty spectacular new album to make their booking as a headliner not seem very weak, and honestly I don’t think they’ll deliver. Other bands like The 1975 have overtaken them in the last few years as the hot new British act to rise up the ranks.
  24. FloorFiller

    2019 Headliners

    Yeah I can see the reasoning behind people thinking he might but I really don't see it myself - I feel like the initial mega hype may have subsided come album #2. Subbing the Pyramid though? Definitely.
  25. FloorFiller

    2018 New Music

    It's good but it doesn't quite take off like I'd hoped. Body Talk was wall to wall bangers so hoping this new album follows suit.
