    2020 headliners

    I really loved 1989 and think Taylor Swift would actually be a pretty great headliner but I can't help but feel the reason she's suddenly doing so many festivals is because she's not really had a big crossover hit for a few years.

    The Coldplay rumors are pretty disheartening, surely people have wised up to their dreary music and Chris Martin's psychotically humble act by now?
  3. I agree, I wish Live Nation would just overrule DF and put on their own camping festival. They would probably do much better than whatever their current deal is.
  4. I think it should be possible to have a (preferable camping) festival in Scotland that caters to everyone and not just Clyde 1 listeners, there are still loads of great acts playing festivals like Glastonbury, APE, Parklife and Blue Dot this summer that have bypassed Scotland completely.
  5. True, near the end of T they definitely exaggerated stuff like adding their daily numbers together to claim a Glastonbury size crowd but claiming a sell out when it isn't seems a bit pointless.

    I can't help but feel their last album has been a bit of a flop or at least not as big as expected, its definitely not been their OK Computer (which some reviews compared it to). I guess they've still another new album coming out pretty soon though.
  7. I just watched it and its weird looking back at some of the previous headliners. Apologies but my main takes were Adele seemed quite bland, Ed Sheeran actually came across really likable and most of the mid 00s indie bands like Arctic Monkeys and the Killers sound a bit dated now. Jay Z's and Beyonce's sets looked out of this world and Coldplay are maybe quite lucky they're local and friends to the festival. As Skin pointed out the Skunk Anansie headline set seems almost trailblazing in hindsight. Also Dolly Parton really transformed the legend slot into a party slot didn't she?
  8. I guess the "hilarious" stage invader didn't help either but yeah the set was quite disjointed and had nowhere near the same flow to it as his Coachella set. He really should have headlined a few years earlier to be fair.

    I wonder what stunt Coldplay will pull to top 2016, maybe they'll give everyone an oculus rift headset and perform a VR duet with hologram Bowie

    It would be great if the festival could give Coldplay a swerve for their 50th anniversary but its not going to happen is it, they're probably planning their next album around it.
  11. It sucks for Hozier really who is probably going to lose most of his crowd to him, both him and Billie Eilish could have probably easily played the pyramid this year.

    I hate to say it but this is looking more likely now Lukas Nelson & Promise of the Real have been announced on the line up
  13. Is Glasgow/Scotland that small a region? I think there is still demand there for a festival that appeals to older and younger people in Scotland (Electric Picnic in Ireland manages this and as a result sells out it 55,000 tickets instantly every year) but so far TRNSMT has yet to get the balance right (a second stage/tent for more mid tier alternative acts could work if there's space) .
  14. I agree, its been mentioned before (and the real music fans may dismiss this) be he is in a similar position to Oasis when they first headlined in 95 in that that they both only had one album (Stormzy if anything probably has more material if you count his collaborations) and were part of a new scene (britpop and grime respectively).
  15. I wonder if the demand for festivals is dwindling somewhat, I seen a few doing multi ticket offers/competitions recently and there's very few which actually sell out anymore.
