    The National

    I'm always very wary of getting my hopes up for them appearing at Glastonbury, ever since that year they announce a show in London on the Tuesday or something and I thought they were absolutely nailed on.

    The National

    I've just been on my Facebook on my phone and Best Kept Secret have boosted a post advertising The National, with the line: "The National celebrates 10 Years if High Violet exclusively at Best Kept Secret." So would this be their only High Violet show in Europe?
  3. Good effort that. Had a look at where I want to be and I cant really quibble, apart from that Confidence Man slot. I think they are in for quite a big slot this year.

    If my casio's on the ball they're in France on the Saturday no? I just meant I feel if there's going to be the Pyramid Size headliners on the other that Emily as alluded to it'll be Saturday and Sunday. So it would be either Friday or Sunday, Friday would be an horrendous clash for me. Sunday would be a better fit all round and equal a better crowd split.

    As has been mentioned there's no real evidence to suggest The Strokes are still chasing a big pay day, there's probably a little more evidence to suggest their demands have come down a little since their return. They have and are playing smaller festivals now, APE, that one in Barcelona that got cancelled plus more mid range Euro festivals but also the bigger ones it seems. If they have a new album to promote then they are going to need to put the hard yards back in and get about a bit, which it looks like they are doing I dont for one second think they will headline the other stage, but there's going to need to be two huge bands on that stage on Saturday and Sunday night to try and split the crowd. Emily's comment about 'Pyramid sized headliner's' could relate to them having booked to acts who could step up to headliner the Pyramid if either Macca or Twizz were to pull out. Reading and Leeds have 2 headliner slots to fill and it looks like most of their budget has gone on them and Liam is the cheaper option. So they could turn up there as a UK exclusive.
  6. Trying to work out who this would be. Think there's P Money, Jaykae and potentially Skepta? Big Zuu?

    So annoying. Starting to think they arn't doing glasto.
  8. Despacio should curate a night on Arcadia. Saturday night in 2014 remains one if my favorites ever at Glastonbury, swerved Metallica and then had a few hours in Despacio. From 5am Sunday morning to about Wednesday was not fun, however.
  9. Arnt they a European exclusive for Primavera?
  10. I hate these because I have so much trouble remembering what came out this year. Album: Dave - Psychodrama Song: AJ Tracey - Ladbroke Grove Glastonbury Set: Stormzy Non-Glastonbury Gig: The Horrors - Royal Albert Hall Film: There's probably one I'm overlooking but Hotel Mumbai. Can't remember when Green Book came out. TV Show: Darkness: Those Who Kill Book: Mundial Mag - Only think I've read this year, that and United We Stand. Game: (For those who play them) Only play Fifa and that's not getting a shout. eFester of the Year 2019: A joint one @bennyhana22for this unrelenting enthusiasm for Glastonbury and for also making the Dance thread a pleasure to read at all times. And obviously his twitter post yesterday. @dentaIpIan - I always enjoy reading what he has got to say, mainly because he seems to have a good knowledge of everything.

    Swap LDR out put Dua Lipa in, then Capaldi in for Dua Lipa. Ian Brown over to The Other for Capaldi. cant see Noel subbing Kendrick either, would be a big exodus I think. Other than that I think thats not a bad shout.

    Headlining the Other is the only Stage I can realistically see them doing. Still feel a bit cheated after 2017.

    But why do the likes of Keane, Snow Patrol etc need to be on the initial poster? Who's deal breaker for watching Liam Gallagher is Keane? Book some female led bands into those slots or even some UK Rap acts. They've booked the days on the strength of a headliner shifting the tickets so they could at least promote some other bands into the lower slots. Keane categorically do not need to be on that line up to increase ticket sales.

    It's not the lack of just female musicians, it's the lack of BAME artists as well which makes it all even worse. The argument about TRNSMT's demographic doesn't really bare fruit when they have booked Lewis Capaldi. It's up to the festivals and promoters themselves to put these bands in in the spotlight, SJM are the biggest culprits for this. They literally made Blossoms the next big thing by putting them on every line up under the Sun. So why cant they do this with a female led band?

    Neighbourhood, TRNSMT and IOW's line ups are embarrassing. It's 2019.
