  1. (Yes) All the suitable major festivals have had them sub or equivalent so I'm not sure why you thought it was just Glastonbury. The crowds are clearly still there for them, and they certainly wouldn't attract a smaller gathering than the recent sets from Christine, BBK, New Order and also half of the names that people are throwing about for next year.

    Worth reminding ourselves now and then that Emily has never actually promised to go above and beyond for next year.

    If that ongoing discussion is with Macca and the backup is Foals then bring on Taylor and Coldplay I'm down diggy diggy down diggy diggy down down

    One night they won't be headlining the Pyramid is probably Sunday.

    The dopest shout.

    50th Anniversary

    It's been bugging me but shouldn't this thread be titled '50th Yannisversary'?

    50th Anniversary

    I feel like Earth Wind & Fire would be stepping from WH headline to afternoon Pyramid a bit like Chic & Nile recently did.

    Honestly, yeah. When it seemed like they would be lucky to get one album out before June 2020 I thought we were safe. Two albums before then and a mooted European tour including festivals in the summer?
  9. I'm not sure where people are getting that they've dropped off horrendously. Some of these shouts are laughable. They're sailing to their third consecutive number one album - the last one sold pretty close to 40k copies in its first week which is pretty damn good as things go. May not be doing 4/5 arena dates anymore but instead 20+ academy/theatre sized shows. Sure they aren't as ubiquitous anymore but they're still a well known name with a big fanbase in this country. Comparable to the Stereophonics, but actually allowed at Worthy Farm.
  10. I'm not sure if it's a stunt or not but I'm reading on Ringrocker that the fest sent out newsletters by accident teasing Kings of Leon and Twenty One Pilots. As two of the remaining headliners, one would imagine.
  11. I think it will be Other Stage headline this time.

    Foals

    I see. Ouch. Although, there's probably a significant number who just entered the ballot because it was free and got an email without intention of heading down so I could imagine it being fine.

    Foals

    Shirley what it means is that, if you have won a ticket through the ballot, you arrive around doors and get in. Then after a while, they count the number of no-shows and let in that many people hanging about outside on the off-chance?

    We don't have much indication on who's touring next year, to be fair. Still fairly early days.
  15. Might be underselling them a bit. They'd be a bigger act than any act in a highish Pyramid slot for a long long while. If they weren't so fucking awful, we'd be talking about them headlining the Pyramid, right? Imagine if that's who Glastonbury had been 'negotiating with all summer', yikes.
  16. For Glastonbury, or WH in particular? I would have expected him/them too big for WH and more likely somewhere up the Pyramid but on WH would be a massive coup.
  17. Santan Dave isn't even a millennial.

    There is no headliner that there wouldn't be complaints about. I'm not sure what the complaints against booking Elton would be but I guess I'd be happy to find out.
  19. Yeah. I suppose it would all hinge on what this tour is supposed to be. I’m thinking that OP must have caught a glimpse of 2018’s tour poster because I can’t see anything either apart from that article.

    What’s suggested is that Mick, the one who has been making eyes, wants it whereas some or all of the others don’t. There’s not much more to read into it than that.

    What I’m reading is that you love to see it and you’re making it 12 times in June. I don’t get why people without a horse in the race strongly want to see the true headliners defeat these apparent no-marks. Are y’all knights of the festival saving m’lady Glastonbury from having a slightly weaker headliner? Why give a crap?
