    2019 Headliners

    Nah come on. I'm not president of the Noel Gallagher fan club (cos I'm vice president) but the man is an absolute unit and even his latest, apparently commercially disappointing album gets to no. 1 and sells copies quicker than Foo Fighters, Kasabian, Muse, etc. so to say he's as big as a third down act or the classic ropey sub choice is daft. And this is a guy who, by rights, should barely be selling albums at all because people generally go to his gigs to hear old songs by his old band.

    2019 Headliners

    Forgot about that one. Perhaps he'd support the right act then, like, but I think the ego is definitely in play when he could make a bunch of money supporting Kasabian or Kings of Leon at IOW or R+L but chooses to be the star of the show at Tramlines or YNOT.

    2019 Headliners

    If they could get him in that slot they absolutely would. I would think they'd be happy to have him sub. It's just that he's clearly not interested in playing support for anyone. He still sells out arenas, still sells albums in massive volumes, and he will carry on doing that for the foreseeable future. Anyone suggesting that because he plays events headlined by Friendly Fries or whoever means that he's only as big as those acts and could only attract the same level of crowd is clearly out of touch with reality.

    Latitude 2018

    I updated one the other day so that’s not it. But yeah, there’s only two stages with any running order yet so a clashfinder is of little use at the moment.

    Depends who’s on at the same time. Tame Impala were up against things like The 1975 and Chvrches, so that started off with a very small and attentive crowd which quickly and quietly found itself surrounded, like off The Birds. Think they might do well before AOR forebearers Fleetwood Mac.

    2019 Headliners

    He already chose the life of headlining any old field jamboree over sub slots at major festivals, didn’t he? And he will always have a place at those I reckon. Liam’s at his peak popularity right now anyway, and he knows it else he wouldn’t have crammed four years of moneyspinning slots into one summer. Could easily be the case that he’s either doing the same as Noel in a few years or nothing at all.

    TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Wondering why I had Miles Kane highlighted then.

    2019 Headliners

    I can confidently say yes, he would. They’ve been reunited for ten years, my man.

    2019 Headliners

    Yeah I’m sure I’d have a stronger argument for it if he comes back with two nights at the O2, a chart single and a nice haircut. Plus Stone Roses, despite being British and all playing Glastonbury at some point, never took the Pyramid headline slot on their reunion. Oasis could do the same.

    2019 Headliners

    I’d say they’re in a very different basket seeing as they will no doubt be regrettable headline choices in a few years time whereas Nick has already stood the test of time and is now at the peak of his powers. Like if he hadn’t decided to play a few times already, he’d probably be in the same air as Depeche Mode - who sell arenas at a slower rate but people will be selling their grans to see headline the Pyramid when the apocalypse you’ve described of Glastonbury solely headlined by pop headliners down on their luck flanked by four-time repeats comes.

    R+L Headliner Bracket Game

    Feel like Rage and Paramore probably got that one. I thought Arctic Monkeys would be a finalist so I'm pretty surprised by that one, but I don't disagree with it either. Moving on: The Smashing Pumpkins vs Green Day Kings of Leon vs The Cure

    2019 Headliners

    Maybe but I feel like that's only because we've had ten years or so where Glastonbury managed to tick off loads of names off "the list" and our expectations for headliners are unreasonably high. That low a number of possible new headliners (even adding the bands that would undoubtedly be in front of Tame Impala in the queue) just isn't sustainable. I recall there being plans to build up other new parts of the site and move the focus away from the Pyramid headliners anyway, so that would hopefully allow for a bit more risk and not just sticking with past headliners because they are already headliners.

    That is a better demonstration of my point than that whole post I just wrote.

    2019 Headliners

    I don't think that's true. The added factor of him receiving more recognition is that he receives more exposure as well. This place is full of youngsters (including yours truly yep) that have gotten into old Nick in the past few years and seen him for the first time, and I think that'll continue for a bit too. As I keep alluding to though; let's say Madonna plays, Daft Punk play, Elton and Fleetwood Mac play or retire - where does that leave us for future headliners? There's no landscape that everyone is happy with. If people still want legendary headliners then why not Nick Cave who will have forty years of material in the back pocket and is selling out bigger venues than ever? Beats The Killers headlining again just because no young band has stepped up and taken the headline slot off them.

    The blue pill is Kasabian.

    It's a nicer thought than anyone else we're likely to get.

    Godiva Festival 2018

    As shocking as that is, it's worse to think there would've been a time where he'd command much, much more than that.

    R+L Headliner Bracket Game

    Oh right. All day I was expecting you to kick off about Rage taking the lead - didn't know you liked them. And yeah I remember thinking I'd try cut down on posting when I hit 10k or something.

    Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Thinking/hoping it’s a relatively small gig just to whip up demand for when they come back properly. Probably what they should’ve done in the US. Still daft though considering they’ll be like fifty shows into the tour by that point.
