    2020 headliners

    ...at a price. I'm sure they'd have bagged Madge years ago if they'd paid enough. That said, as big as it is, Glastonbury is still ascending in terms of international reputation, and more recent big-name American pop performers may have turned her head. She could very well fit the 'act still in negotiation' category, although I really can't see a trio of American headliners. The big question is whether I'd take Kendrick if it means McCartney, or Madonna if it means The 1975.
  2. Bjork plus orchestra. You heard it here first.

    I don’t think Coldplay were ever in contention but it’s still welcome news. So is the working theory still Kendrick and Taylor in the bag, and ironing out the kinks with McCartney?
  4. I was sat behind comedy legend Chris Morris years ago at a gig in the Apollo. I was quite distracted weighing up the pros and cons of saying hello. I concluded that whatever brief appreciation I’d script in my head beforehand would degenerate into simpering, fawning sycophancy the moment I’d open my mouth. He’d be uncomfortable and I’d be mortified.
  5. Anyone know where to find an English brekky on the farm?

    My point is that they're so old (and so are we) that kids today could well have never heard of them and it would say nothing.

    Sure, but it's a strawman to suggest they'd therefore be equivalent with whatever band you think they ought to be.

    But again, their last album was 31 years ago. Why should anyone of a certain age be familiar with them because they're keen on Glastonbury enough to be here?

    Surely it's an age thing. I'm equally baffled at how you'd expect anyone to be familiar with a band who haven't put out an album for more than three decades, whatever you think of them. There's just too much music out there to be across all of it.

    That link only serves to explain how they'll be quite far down the pecking order next time they play.

    I reckon they'd fit the bill of headlining the Other and being what Emily calls 'headliner worthy', but realistically we all know they'd never headline the Pyramid. 50th could be perfect to tick both boxes.
  12. The green futures fields also seem to have some late night areas, far more chilled and toned down which is more my style these days.
  13. I'm bringing along the better half for her first time in 2020, and we've decided that I'll do the crack of dawn queueing/tent pitching, and she'll arrive later on the Wednesday when it's all set up. Because of course she will. But now it's left me a bit unsure when the best time would be for her to arrive. She'd be getting dropped off at the Showground drop-off, and I'll meet her at PGA. When would be the best time for her to arrive with minimal traffic/queues?

    What do people think about the exchange between Emily and Jeff Goldblum on The One Show? She asked him back, he said he’d be there if she invited him, and she seemed positive. I can’t work out if it was just a little on-screen love-in or whether it means something. He’s released a new album since his appearance this year...
