    2020 headliners

    At least they didn't actually write it.

    2020 headliners

    Saw them last time they toured and I thought they were great, really nailed it. However, they seem really hit and miss. They pulled out last minute in the 90s, which left a very sour taste in Michael’s mouth apparently. Not least because it was too late to find another headliner so they pushed up (I think) Lenny Kravitz. I’m sure I’d seen a quote from Michael basically saying that they’re not welcome back. There’s a reason why they’ve played IOW, Reading and V numerous times and never popped up at Glastonbury. I’d also say that they’re far less popular now than a decade ago, but I’m sure they’d still draw a big crowd. I read somewhere that 1 in 3 households in the UK have a copy of the By the Way album, which is impressive.

    Future Headliners

    As much as I'd like to see REM, it's not happening. I swear some people are just reading headlines regarding their promotion of Monster's 25th anniversary and presuming a reunion will happen, because in literally every interview with Michael when asked, he says a reunion won't be happening.

    Well, she's only gonna play half of a headline slot, so that's money saved....which must mean Taylor is playing for free. This rumour has to be the most nonsensical so far.

    Ho would a co-headline setup of Madonna and Taylor work? I can't see why either would agree to it. They're both big enough to headline in their own right. Someone would have to come on first, and so they wouldn't be seen as a true headliner. Unless they alternated songs, which would be hilariously awkward.

    Yeah, suppose I did! I don't really like that method, but from a health and safety perspective it's the only option. To be fair, with the internet in the palm of your hand and social media and all, a "secret" set is never really secret now.

    I just can't see there being an huge secret sets, even though it's the 50th. It's far too dangerous and risky. It sounds great in theory, but the reality would be massive crushes as a tens of thousands of people descend upon one area. I suppose they could close off areas like they did at JP for the Killers a few years back.

    Didn't they blame their 2015 surliness on sound issues?

    Out of curiosity, what's the reasoning behind Taylor being a SR?

    I'm not really sure how Daft Punk would go about playing a set with RAM songs - they're such an outlier compared to the other stuff they've made. I don't actually think they'll ever make another album, maybe just the odd collaboration, and I don't think they'll ever play Glastonbury again.

    2020 headliners

    I think they're always in with a shout as they really like the festival and share its sentiments regarding charity. Their last album disappointed a tad though, but I do think they'll headline again within 5 years.
  12. Didn't Macca say that his kids were telling him to play the 50th?

    Having a big band open the festival on Friday is just too dangerous. There would be a massive rush towards the Pyramid field, and if it was announced prior to Friday, the field would have to be blocked off - like JP was for the Killers. The latter could happen I suppose, but even then there would be massive crowding issues at the entrance/exit points to the Pyramid field.
