  1. If it was an album show then Gaslight I think would do the Dropkicks slot. ADTR could definitely top it given what the cost will be next year too. They don't sell their tours or that quick at arena level.
  2. Nope. The guy I met though I was with him a fair bit and I've no reason to not believe him. He goes Download himself and was given a plectrum by the guitarist from previous as he knows them.
  3. He said he thinks Sunday but take that as a pinch. Just passing info
  4. I've had good info today that Parkway Drive are high up mainstage, potentially headlining. I've met someone who's friends with the guitarist.
  5. A lot of it will be to do with younger fans liking music they may have heard being brought up. I like a lot of music before I was born either by my own chocie or through my parent's. But older guys probably see modern rock as being around too much of s crowd they don't wish to be. Maybe a bit like a night out. Many older people will avoid where the majority of youngsters are hanging out. That's kinda just the way it is. But rock for me at least, was far better 10 years ago than today. Even the rock/metal bands I think were better imo then. I've rough estimated 10 years.

    2023 Headliners

    Given Glastonbury's liking to get crowds moving around or try to, the act they would have in between I'd expect to be opposite. But I think Nick Cave would work well. Never going to get the biggest crowd but he would certainly move it. For me he's a sub that could play any day as if for example the 3 most talked about were the 3 then he's nothing like any of them. Haha, if they got spice girls as the legend and then Olivia, Kasabian and Taylor that's up there with Gibb, Chic, Biffy for me.

    Kasabian, Lana Del Rey, Nick Cave as subs. Chem Bros, The Prodigy and Biffy Clyro as Other stage. Actually going to go for Olivia 3rd down Pyramid not getting carried away with it. But still 3rd down on the Taylor day if she's there. Kasabian and Biffy could switch places but that's a current guess.
  8. That's never going to be a Legends slot.

    Yeah I think her subbing Taylor makes sense. But she's not doing 22,23 and back in 25 as a headliner. That's overkill. Wair to see the next material first. Your 2023 was my original thought way back. 2024 I'd potentially not even try for if I knew it was that, worst outcome for me. 2026 I'd be really into.

    Atm I think that top 3. Biffy Clyro I think will take that or a Pyramid sub. I think Kasabian will sun Pyramid over headline Other to get the bigger crowd and no headline clash. I'd go for Aerosmith to do their big slot and a wild stab at Pink to do the Miley slot.
  11. Well you could definitely fit another stage in that main stage area. That main stage doesn't need all that space, no one ever fills it all
  12. Mental how someone has one good set and suddenly they start headlining something. Not going to happen.

    Because Kenny's lyrics last Sunday were all family festival friendly.
  14. Are you attempting to just make it worse than this year lol

    Not greatly no. She needs something else imo. It took ages for her tour to sell out even when gigs were going ahead more so. People were announcing gigs way after her at the same venues and selling them out much quicker. I wouldn't complain as I didn't get a ticket to her tour but the setlist also wasn't necessarily the best for me. But I think off of a new album it'll be a better option.
  16. Rise Against have announced a UK tour for later this year.
  17. If some of the pop they booked this year is okay then booking Spice Girls who are an much mpre all round known act where people know the songs even if not liking then wouldn't be an issue. We can't deny and ignore from recent times that's where the festival is heading.

    Harry 2024 maybe That 2024 is mine too but maybe Fender for Harry. Yeah Taylor is up with one I wouldn't miss. Obviously not 100% but given you're reputation on here I'm willing to take it more than not. I will be plunging money on Arctics as soon as any betting arrives. That's what I want. Sometimes without seeing it I don't know but if I got that for my 10th time attending I think I'd be happy to bow out at that. The issue would be that if The Prodigy did do Other, I would find it hard to miss but all 3 of these are unmissable. Mac have gotta be 23 or 24. Question is would they have Bruce and Mac in the same year.

    2023 Headliners

    Bruce can't do Saturday and SHM will not play for the fee. No way Arctics don't play. On the plus side, it would be the easiest year to get tickets for a resale. However big that option of 3 is, people wouldn't be happy with that.
  20. Noel Gallagher became a bit pointless to try and catch when Liam started singing Oasis imo. Yes he does a few different Oasis tunes but I got to see Oasis and the prime voice behind the song was Liam regardless of the writer. This is where I'd have been probably as I had nothing else on.
  21. So go and tell whoever it is that is implying that then lol.

    I think this is possible too. I don't see Doja Cat or Biffy being anyhing but Pyramid subs. Biffy may know they aren't going to headline but if they take an Other stage headline slot they really are accepting it. That's almost risking not being booked to outright headline at other major festivals and just be a joint option. I'd be happy with that but don't see Elton as playing on Friday. Dua Lipa imo is the alternative pop booking that doesn't alienate people. I think he's up there. If he could do two nights in the UK and still play it would be different I think. I also think Bruce is 2024 with one of your Dave, The Weekend or Dua Lipa that doesn't make next year.
  23. Honestly after I got home from holiday, I was watching it last night as the mother turned it on generally and I thought how many times is it basically swearing rap. If it was before 9pm, that show would jave come across awfully for the amount of cutting words the bbc would have needed to do. Fair if people like him, but his crowd shown that not only wasn't he people's favourite choice but a poor Sunday choice. You van have 5k-20k people watching an act and it'll look a great crowd if they are all into that. That is what you get at academies and arenas all over the country because it's actual tours but that doesn't mean it was right for that spot.

    There wasn't a 2018 lineup. 2019 lineup for me had unique and rarer acts to see. I'd have been pissed to miss 2019 and worked to be able to get there. Whereas this year, I had the option open up to work it and just lose a small camping deposit and opted against it. I knew someone to camp with as well from previous.

    That top 3 Friday for Pyramid and Other would be difficult except MSP. I would choose Elton, Paramore and Manics. I definitely think Biffy will be there and Glastonbury is not the place they are going to change the set up a bit if they don't at Download.
