    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Nah cos that was obviously happening when he did that. This obviously isn't happening, don't care if the bloody Daily Star think it is. Noel Gallagher 2020.

    I can't wait for the poster to come out so we can stop entertaining the idea that Glasto have booked both Gallagher brothers to sub in 2019.

    Liverpool fans don't half love making everything about Liverpool.

    The Darkness

    I wasn't old enough to have a clue about festivals then (I was 8), but even I remember them being the biggest thing on the planet. Remember them cleaning up at the BRIT Awards.

    Well they were THE band of the moment in 2004, weren't they?

    2019 festival

    HAIM pulled out in 2016 and got booked a slot higher in 2017. Would probably depend on why they pulled out.

    At least they actually showed up in 2014. Better than when I tried to see 'em this Summer. Edit: I will add I don't remember them being remotely bad, but I also don't really remember it very well.

    2019 Stage Predictions

    People like this often end up playing, though. ZZ Top were debated every year until they played, Beck was debated every year until he played.

    What the fuck hahahahaha And why does Janelle Monáe need 2 days off before she does 3 more dates? Is she the new Macca? Soon we won't be able to have anyone who's got another show the week of Glasto cos they'll need to rest.

    The Strokes

    As I've said before, I think the only way they'd play Glastonbury at all is if Glasto end up scraping the barrel for a headliner (and the only reason I think there could be something in this is because there are other things to suggest they may in fact be scraping the barrel). I don't think they'd accept a non-headline slot and I don't think Glasto would want them as headliners unless it's as a last option (exactly the same as The Cure but a bit further down the list, basically). I assume this tour is the same as all their recent tours - a quick cash grab. They may be planning to release new material but I don't see how they're gonna do so before Summer based on how busy they've been with their other projects. And anyway, the reason they're being discussed is because of the bits of info we've had about them playing, which all say they're headlining, so I don't see why people are taking those bits of info, ignoring the "headlining" part and predicting them to sub. Edit: Okay looks like Nick Grimshaw didn't specify headlining so ignore that last part. We've had other info that they are headlining though which, again, is partly why I think there could be something in it.

    The Strokes

    A John Peel secret set is quite clearly not the most likely option for a band who have never even played Glastonbury and are notorious for following the money. That's like saying the most likely slot for The Stone Roses is a secret set.

    The Strokes

    It seems highly unlikely they'll have an album in the works seeing as both Julian and Albert have been releasing albums/touring since last year (no idea about the rest of them) and still are for a while yet. As you allude to, a new album would probably make them more likely to accept worse slots/paydays as they'd have new material to promote. As they're unlikely to have new material, they're even less likely to take a sub slot than they would have been in, say, 2011, as the only reason they seem to start the band up again these days is to pick up a few paydays headlining festivals. There's absolutely nothing in it for them to sub Glasto without new material (this part isn't aimed at you, it's a more general point).

    Wtf I'd see 50 and I don't even think that's one of the best potential lineups I've seen.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Have there ever been any Pyramid openers who you'd expect to Draw a crowd, though? It's usually some random choir or ballet or whatever. In the 4 years I've been going the only act I remember opening the Pyramid other than Hacienda Classical is the Syrian Orchestra with Damon Albarn. Edit: Oh Rolf Harris did it? I doubt they got a bigger crowd than he did.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    Would make more sense. It may have been great and they may want to kick things off in the same way next year but that can be done just as easily on Other, where stuff gets repeated all the time. I don't really see them wanting to repeat the exact same thing on the Pyramid at the following festival, unless it's going to be a massively different show.

    2019 Possibilities (Non Pyramid Headliner)

    I agree but I don't see why they'd say they're playing if they're not. The quote was from December 2017 btw not the 2017 festival. "We're booked for the year after this." Worth noting that he said nothing about opening the Pyramid again. Unless I've missed another quote since then that just seems to be an assumption that people have started to take as fact.
