    Kate Tempest

    I did see that performance in 2017 and it was blistering, a real highlight of the festival. However my favourite performance was her at Festival Number 6 (believe it or not) in 2015. Back to back with Young Fathers; the adrenaline and emotion in that little tent was unbelievable. Will definitely see again this year
  2. It’s a superbly diverse mix of acts and I really do think that there is something for everyone in the big acts, let alone the bulk of the festival which is still to come. Christine and the Queens is the stand out booking for me, but there are 5-6 acts that I really really want to see. Another 10-12 that I would love to catch. Just really well balanced
  3. He has certainly done it before, so possible I guess.
  4. Very happy with that indeed. Not massively fussed with the headliners, but lots of interesting stuff lower down. Going to be a great year!

    2019 Headliners

    I guess it’s the old argument; they don’t quite feel right for 2019, but billings elsewhere and their history mean that they could only headline. They also address a demographic that Stormzy and (arguably) The Killers don’t. If it was my money I’d keep Bob and the lads and give another young act a go rather than The Killers. Or book Gaga.

    2019 Headliners

    Does anyone think there is a realistic chance of it not being The Cure and The Killers? As depressing as that is.... I just can’t think of anyone else feasible, available and suitable

    Other Stage

    I would guess supporting The Cure, but who knows really?
  8. Hitchen Hill, since 2003 as I am a creature of habit. Usually a good crowd, nice loos and a relatively good path down to the centre in the wet years.

    2019 Headliners

    Yup. That was the occasion. Not my favourite Glastonbury moment

    I was already a post-grad. Feel ancient!

    2019 Headliners

    I do think that there is something in that and that it is becoming more common. I could speculate that this is driven by relatively few “festival type” bands sticking around for long enough to build name recognition. Anyway who knows! Anyway back onto headliners. Gaga please Mr.E.

    2019 Headliners

    Yup. This is why I’m so surprised that the comeback is being mooted as such a big deal. I am trying to remember what year Mr.Skinner last did Glastonbury (2013?) but it was to a half empty JP Tent. Neither band nor audience really wanted to be there....
  13. I am surprised by how sad I am about this. I’m not angry or anything and I’m going to get over it very quickly (I’m going to Glastonbury after all). It just feels a bit deflating.

    2019 Headliners

    Usually I don’t even begin to care about the Headliners, but was quite invested in Macca and so now feel a) a bit sad and b) curious about what is going to happen now. I just don’t see the Strokes.... Their debut album was massive in alternative circles for about 12-18 months (and did get some mainstream exposure) but that was 15 years ago. Since then they just kind of vanished. I understand that they do still sell big (but infrequent) gigs but surely that is just to their original fans. It’s not even as if they have influenced a current trend or had a significant legacy; probably as a result of being so incredibly derivative themselves. Surely if the festival was going to book a smaller headliner it would give a younger act (I.e. one with momentum and buzz) a leg up? That would have a much larger impact.
  15. I think so as I suspect that a lot of tickets will end up as Christmas presents.
