    I don't think it works like a normal venue gig, where as you say the headline act get a proper sound-check and leave their gear on stage, and the support acts have to squeeze in in front of that for their sets with minimal sound-team support. From what I've seen the stage is cleared completely between acts, and the next act has been setting up on mobile platforms back-stage, so they wheel on the drums and amps etc. already mic'd up and line-checked, and plug them into multi-way connectors on stage ready to go. So each act gets an equal bite at the PA cherry. Although, that said, it often seems that the headline act gets a bigger interval from the sub-headliners in which to make sure everything is set up perfectly - Kanye had a full hour's interlude in which to plug in his mic and laptop, f'rinstance, whereas most acts get about 30mins So the difference is probably down to how good each band's sound team is at setting up that quickly and optimising the particular space that they're dealing with for their band's sound
  2. Tantalising - wonder what they mean by "a" Glastonbury line up - maybe just themselves, or Block 9, or something even bigger??
  3. Yeah reckon. Be very disappointing if they don't swerve by

    Its saving grace is that when the sides are up the audience can spill out all over the field. Sure, you can't see anything from out there, but you can hear fairly well and pick up the vibe a bit (and there's always a great vibe in that field anyway)

    Read my thoughts, thank you Duke (sorry out of upvotes for the mo')

    I thought the rumour was just that it wasn't going to be in the SE corner? Odd to put it up by Avalon though, but the reshuffling of the SE corner looks interesting... and all that new stuff up in the Park, whoah!

    Yes, odd isn't it? Can't adults appreciate, nay rave, over the artistic talents of young people without it being seen as anything but redirected lust?

    We don't know yet - it looks from their twitter like even they don't know! But it's not Friday headline (that's Frank Turner), so probably headline or sub-headline on Saturday or Sunday at a guess ... or what Gnomey said (sorry, slow reply)

    They've confirmed too that this poster is just the main stage lineup (if any confirmation were needed)
