    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.

    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.
  5. 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.

    Time for us all to accept that Coldplay are very likely to be one of the headliners next year. Got a new album out Friends of the festival Headlined multiple times already
  9. Any thoughts on why Macca would have pulled out/not wanted to do it?

    Fri - Macca Sat - Taylor Sun - Elton
  11. I kind of just presumed they'd booked the Killers for Saturday night ages earlier, since they'd done that "secret" JP slot before the fallow year. Guess they were actually just struggling to get someone...

    So are the rumours that there's something in the Glastonbury 50 book that reveals Fleetwood Mac are playing next June? Because that doesn't make much sense. There's no way FM or the festival would want to print that this far ahead. What if the band have to pull out? Foo Fighters had to pull out. Mumfords nearly did. RHCP did back in the 90s. It happens. I just don't see the festival wanting to print a confirmation in this book before it's actually happened.

    Ticket Sale Date

    Coach resale is definitely just 2.

    That's a good point. Might need to have a chat with the individual about this.

    Ticket Sale Date

    I thought I'd heard this. I believe the one person who is in our 6 who will likely be in another group will tell me straight away if she's sorted. I couldn't handle getting through and then having to start from scratch. To clarify, it's: Coach Sale - max of 4 General Sale - max of 6 Coach Resale - max of 2 General Resale - max of 4

    Ticket Sale Date

    Hypothetically, if you're trying in a group and someone in your group is also part of another group trying and they get sorted, yet I get through and enter their details does my transaction go through for the 5 people, or does it kick me back out?

    Didn't Mick briefly manage the band, which led to bankruptcy? I recall something about each member having a personal limo wherever they landed. Proper rock n roll.

    No Lindsay means no acoustic Big Love or Never Going Back Again. It wouldn't be as good as it could have been with Lindsay.

    I only got it in the 00s, but I can imagine it didn't necessarily sit well with those who'd loved Automatic for the People and Out of Time. Quite a bit more distortion on Pete's guitar for starters.

    I really like Monster as an LP, but I'm pretty sure it's one of the most disliked by REM fans?
  21. Lots of redevelopment happening, or at least being planned, all around that area. I suspect that there's a fear that the development may lead to noise reductions being issued, or the site may just be bought outright. I wouldn't bet on Motion being there in 5 years time, maybe less.
  22. Agree with this. I can never see The Beatles, so i don't feel bad seeing The Bootleg Beatles. But generally if an original band is passed over in order to book a tribute band I just don't think that's fair. It's actually happening in most music venues these days and I'd hate for it to happen at Glastonbury.
  23. Makes you appreciative how smoothly Glastonbury runs, from the outside anyway.
  24. Weren't there plans to host another this year to celebrate 50 years? Obviously never came to fruition.

    However much I'd love it to be FM for the 50th, I think Neil's interpretation is far more likely. It takes a LOT of work, effort and money to put on a one off show compared to going on tour. It really doesn't make much sense for FM to only play Glastonbury in 2020 - but, if they announce other shows in 2020, then it suddenly becomes much more likely.
