    She's headlined festivals in America this year, she'll easily sub Glasto

    If sampling Yellow by Coldplay in her new album doesn't nail her on for Glastonbury next year I don't know what will

    Sam Fender

    Think Sam Fender's popularity at the moment is better compared with maybe Ed Sheeran's circa 2014 after he had 2 albums out. Both singer songwriter types and Sam Fender strays a little more into indie/alternative/War on Drugs territory and Ed Sheeran more pop/saccharine X factor ballad territory. Sam Fender has a similar reaction at the moment to how people were reacting to Ed Sheeran back in 2014, when he suddenly went from playing mid-sized venues to playing arenas and stadiums in the space of about a year. It all depends on the next album of course but I think he's different to an act like Royal Blood and has more of an appeal because he's got a certain kind of heart behind him that people connect with, like some people would have said for Ed Sheeran back in the day.

    2023 Headliners

    I caught a bit of Megans and it was noticeably pretty small so can imagine PSB's was probably the biggest.

    They might have had a bigger crowd than Kendrick had early in his set!

    Yes, when he started he had half the field, and when he finished the field was full. Billie had about 3 quarters full for the whole set, probably because Sam Fender had a much bigger crowd than Lorde.
  7. Would this not make more sense? Prodigy against Swift SZA against AM 1975 against Elton?
  8. I'd say the order of ~bigness~ goes roughly like this. Pyramid headline Pyramid sub Other headline Pyramid 3rd down Other sub Pyramid 4th down West Holts headliner/John peel headliner Other 3rd down Pyramid 5th/Other 4th down Park headliner
  9. Close shot but would say Pyramid sub gets slightly bigger acts. Usually when acts are at the height of their success but not headliner-level they sub Pyramid, then when they play again with a better show but less success it's Other headline.

    I think the thing is that they've headlined other festivals, slightly smaller than glastonbury. They're similar to Arcade Fire for example, who weren't quite big enough after The Suburbs, however still headlined a load of other festivals. After Reflektor they were just about big enough, and the album wasn't massive but it was big enough to propel them to headline a festival like glastonbury. I think they could do it, they just need 1 more album to make them a relevant band again. Doesn't even need to be massive, just not a flop.

    I don't think the 1975 headlining is outside the realms of possibility. They are at that stage where they're just 1 album away from headlining. They headlined R&L back in 2018. Since then they have gone a bit down in popularity, but can see another big album bringing them back into the spotlight again.

    Some of the biggest names in grime came out of a homegrown British music scene.

    What even does "quality of musicians" mean? Bands you used to like and haven't moved on from?
