  1. Hunee and Todd Terje sound like the exact kind of vibe you're looking for. Other than that I'd be all over Omar S, Eris Drew (did one of my favourite Glastonbury sets in The Temple), HAAi, Inner City, James Holden & the Spirit Animals, Moxie, Shanti Celeste, fair few others.
  2. Some right little Thatcherite sociopaths showing their colours in this thread.
  3. With all due respect, you sound like it too.
  4. Ah I'm jealous, I really need to get back to Boomtown at some point.
  5. Very quick Google showed up this: - If you could work with any artist, who would it be? Quelle serait votre collaboration idéale? Britney Spears. I have a fetish for extremely sugary pop music. I’d like to try out my most fairy floss choruses on her.
  6. This just sounds like a Pitchforkified Josephine to me. That's not a criticism, but if it can't be described as a pop song then I really don't know what can.
  7. ???? We're talking about the same band right? I think they're perfectly nice without ever quite being amazing, but they're absolutely at the poppiest limit of that whole post-Ariel Pink hypnagogic pop/chillwave scene.
  8. ?????? We're talking about an Absolute Radio staple from the mid-00s NME darlings crop here, not Klaus Nomi.
  9. Feel like that's happened to a few people who've guested of Charli XCX songs to be fair: their vocals processed in a different way to how they would be on one of their own records. I like it though. I like the idea of guest spots being a case of the guest entering fully into someone else's aesthetic universe.

    Kasabian were bigger then than Foals currently are though, at least in the sense of having more songs immediately hummable by the Radio 2/Absolute Radio/Radio 1 axis that I always imagine your average Pyramid crowd to comprise of - the songs from West Ryder in particular seemed to be on heavy rotation for ages when that album came out.

    Always surprised she wasn't on the Pyramid, she'd get a pretty massive crowd in the middle of the afternoon I reckon.

    All Points East were having to give away tickets by the bucketful for the day Bon Iver headlined. It was a great set but you could tell that they had not shifted anything like the number of tickets that they needed or expected to.
  13. Needs more Balkan brass imo.
  14. Let's be real, there's very, very few acts below headliner level who justify more than an hour on stage, and almost as few at the top tier. 35 rollercoaster minutes of rollicking gamelan freakout will sort the wheat from the chaff.
  15. I completely disagree with this. I think one of the biggest factors in the peculiarly weak Pyramid lineup this year was the lopping off of 1-2 acts compared to previous years - when you've got less spots to fill, curveballs like Baaba Maal in 2016 are the first to go.
  16. I still can’t figure out if Club Mate is the elixir of the gods or a fucking weird mess of a drink.
  17. If it was the same as or similar to her All Points East set then I’m sure she smashed it. The girl’s going places.
  18. Following on from the 'future of Silver Hayes' thread, 'future of John Peel' thread and 'future of acoustic stage' thread, what's the deal with the Pyramid? Loads of unused space, packed out with day trippers and picnic blankets, weird shape, etc. Wouldn't it be much better if they tweaked it a little bit to make it a really classy Wetherspoons, or a nice riverside walk with scenic views, or a mixtape of lo-fi beats? Just throwing out some ideas here, let me know what you guys think, and don't forget to subscribe to my Soundcloud!
  19. To be honest having such an open, empty field was quite nice this year - we sat in some shade along the trees for quite a while on one of the really sunny days.
  20. Craig Charles on the Pyramid would be a sweaty sight to behold.

    Can't wait for The Fratellis to headline in 2021.
