  1. I didn’t believe that Green Day rumour in the slightest and assumed that the Somerset Live article was regurgitated from here, but if there’s any credibility to the chat of them being booked Babington House then that certainly adds up with them playing. Would be no logical reason for them to travel so far South West between shows in Huddersfield and Dublin, and the Soho House venues are common spots for celebs etc. Suspect it may just be local Somerset hearsay based on the article, but huge if true.

    Green Day

    My mate actually bumped into Billie Joe in London last weekend! He was on site at Glasto in 2019 watching his son's band. Secret set would be very good fun but don't know if I can see it happening in JP - even with their lack of relevancy these days they're still a colossal-sized band, would be like when The Killers played (as in rammed as fk). Suppose if their support act are playing that day it's not out of the question that they'd be travelling the same route. Don't see them headlining next year (or ever) though, think if they ever play it will be a secret set or 'special guest' slot kind of thing, like what Aerosmith were originally booked as.

    Kendrick Lamar

    He’s added this on the US version of the album on Spotify, onto ‘Disc 3’. Not sure if this means there is a deluxe on its way with more music, or if his label are just trying to bump up the album streams.
  4. If you Google image search ‘Glastonbury 2022 line up’ that’s the fifth / seventh image which comes up. Fk knows why they’d pick the clearly fake one, maybe just thought it was the biggest looking line up.

    Same here - I've barely listened to anything else since it was released! Not sure what his stage production will be like, but I would guess it will be along the lines of what he had in Vegas in terms of dancers, choreography and big lights: (there's no official footage of this so apologies for linking phone footage) As there are tap dancers featured throughout the MM&TBS album, I can see there being some kind of tap dancing motif at some point as well - and maybe an intro video based on themes from the new album (think he did something like that on the DAMN tour). In terms of previous albums, check out Good Kid Maad City, To Pimp A Butterfly and DAMN as he almost definitely will play songs from all of these albums, as well as a decent portion from the new album. Section 80 is also a very decent album of his worth checking out once you've listened to those three, but I'm doubtful any songs from it will make the cut for the Glasto set - although I hope I'm wrong on that. As others have said, he usually plays with a live band so I'd say that's one thing we can expect from the set. The rest is guesswork!

    Would be cool as fuck if he took these dudes on tour

    After listening to the album more times than I care to admit today, I think United in Grief would be an unreal opening song to the set.

    Kendrick Lamar

    I'm loving the album, although it's very much still marinating so it's too early for me to rank it against his others. Both TPAB and Damn didn't hit me fully on first listen and they are among my favourite albums now. Loved GKMC from my first listen but still today I still find things I didn't acknowledge or understand on the album (thank you Dissect et al). The production on MM&TBS is exceptional and hugely creative at times, and there are layers upon layers of substance in the lyrics - which I suppose is what we've come to expect from Kendrick these days. It hasn't been out long enough for Genius / YouTube to help me out with some of them, and I'm sure many of the sub-themes and lyrical somersaults are likely going over my head at this early point - but I look forward to delving further. There's definitely some correlation towards the difficult subjects and experiences he reveals about himself on the album and the controversial inclusion of Kodak throughout, but I need a few more listens to draw a proper conclusion on that. I found the tap dancing motif throughout really sinister but so relevant. Auntie Diaries is very powerful. Using that slur was incredibly bold, and personally I do think the shock and discomfort of hearing it (repeatedly) hugely helps get the point across which he sums up in the final bars. For obvious reasons though, it's not up to me to decide whether it's 'right' for him to use it in art form. Favourite songs for me on the first few listens are United In Grief, Father Time, Count Me Out, Savior, Mr Morale and Mother I Sober, but enjoying all of them to some extent. I didn't really know what to expect from him with this one, but it's fair to say there aren't any other major hip hop artists making projects of this much depth and complexity at the moment.
  10. She's closing Sunday night at San Remo I think, not sure about Silver Hayes and other sets.
  11. Sounds like Glade is coming Thursday: https://twitter.com/nubient/status/1523809561274208261

    Hugely intrigued by this
  13. This is a really useful thread. I went on a long solo mission on the Saturday in 2019 on the hunt for a shower - free or paid, only to find out they'd all been turned off. I can live without it, but a proper shower at a festival is a game changer in my opinion and the old bottle over the head job at the campsite doesn't cut it for me. Definitely interested in knowing all of the options as I don't think it was clear from the map / guide lanyard - but this is maybe more a reflection of my mind state on day four of the festival. Would happily pay a tenner or so for a decent hot shower there if you can also rent towels etc and there's not a ridiculous queue. Will look into getting one of the campsite shower products people are posting as they look like a great shout when it's hot.

    Kendrick Lamar

    Was listening to a few of these yesterday - Kendrick's version of 16 sounds so good, even if it's just a reference track. Friends and label mates (or family members in this case) helping each other out with writing is common in the industry so Kendrick being involved in a large part of Keem's work and being uncredited for it doesn't surprise me too much, but definitely is interesting nevertheless. Despite that though, Kendrick writing Jay Rock's verse on Money Trees is pretty crazy if true seeing as how highly regarded that feature is.

    Video is back
  16. May have been posted elsewhere, but Jelani Blackman has confirmed he’s playing Rum Shack on the Friday via Insta.
  17. Very happy to see Hak Baker there, and even more so that it's an acoustic set:
  18. As Dixon's doing his Transmoderna show I think he'll be in the Gas Tower to make use of 360' AV visuals. Looks like Folamour's going to be making use of this too with an AV show so would expect to see him on there. Bicep and Max Cooper were among the biggest dance acts on this stage last year and played at 1am - so probably some time around that, but it could really be anytime. From that line up I wouldn't be surprised to see the likes of Jamie Jones, Bonobo, Maribou State, Absolute, Archie Hamilton, Partiboi69, Fatboy Slim, Fumez the Engineer playing Gas Tower too. Saoirse and TSHA might be ones for The Sistxrhood.

    Kendrick Lamar

    New folder on the oklama website (oklama.com/master), looks like it may be a double album 👀
  20. Kendrick is my only 100% must see headliner at the moment from those we know are definitely headlining a stage. There are a fair few decent potentials there I'd be happy with but nothing I'm too precious about - I'm sure this will change when the full line up is out though. Admittedly I'm a bit gutted he's on Sunday as by that point of the festival in 2019 my voice was long gone, so I'll have to take better care this year.

    Arcadia?

    100%, he plays a different set to these EDC/Vegas type crowds and he mentions this in the interview I linked in my previous post. Saying that I don't think it will be like that Summertime Ball set either, more like his lockdown streams with a few remixes of his own tunes sprinkled in. Ah I didn't know that, I was just going on Arcadia's comment below that it was his first time playing which I did find surprising - they must be meaning his first time as a DJ. I first saw him play live around the same time as that in between I Created Disco and his sophomore album when he was still singing, definitely wasn't as bad as he makes out.

    Arcadia?

    Calvin Harris on Arcadia is quite a mad one for his first time at the festival - he's arguably the biggest artist on the entire Glastonbury line up in some metrics bar Paul, with 14+ UK no. 1s. Regarding his set, I'd wager a guess that he'll take advantage of the context and play a bit more towards his house / techno influenced side he's been punting with Love Regenerator - less of a full on brutal EDM set he plays in Vegas like posted above and more like his lockdown streams, which featured tunes from the likes of Floorplan, Trance Wax and FJAAK. Probably still get some of his hits as remixes as well as some of the Love Regenerator productions, which are still very much on the pop side of house music but harmless stuff. The Love Regenerator launch was dampened a bit by lockdown and I reckon he'll now be merging the names for (UK) festival sets like this so he can do a bit of both. He was rumoured to be playing Glasgow's Riverside Festival b2b with Skream back in 2020 along with this original Arcadia booking, so reckon these were booked in a similar vein. If he wanted to make a bag and play the same stuff he plays out in a typical set he'd be headlining the Other Stage. If anyone hasn't seen, worth having a watch/listen of his interview with Annie Mac back from when he announced the Love Regenerator alias - pretty interesting and funny chat about him making music he actually likes, and the negative connotations of the 'Calvin Harris' name.
