  1. It's really not. In 2011 the public perception of the man was vastly different than it is today.
  2. "society didn’t suddenly consider them racist 3/4 years ago" no, but what did change around then is that his statements became so overt that after years of making excuses for him and trying to convince themselves that he was being misinterpreted and falsely accused, his fans finally started to accept the truth.
  3. While that's true, it's only really the last 3 or 4 years that it's been widely acknowledged that he's a nasty racist shit. Back in 2011 when he last played, there was still a lot of apologists for him "oh, he's just being misinterpreted". It's his more recent and less defensible comments that have led to a re-evaluation of the dodgy shit he's been saying dating back to the 80s.
  4. In the April resales, the limit has been 2 per order for coaches so if anyone has got 3, it's because they got through twice. Nobody here knows whether it'll be the same in October, or whether they use the normal October limits. I guess it'll depend on how many people take the refund option.
  5. I don't think many people would come to that conclusion, especially if the announcement was presented in a sensible way. People know that Glastonbury can be a bit erratic with their announcements, and that in recent years headliners have often been announced individually rather than all together. For example, in 2011 Beyonce and Coldplay were both announced before it was confirmed that U2 were playing after having cancelled the previous year and nobody jumped to conclusions then.
  6. The history makes it it easy enough to fudge it anyway. This year would have been the 50th anniversary of the first event held at Worthy Farm. Next year will be the 50th anniversary of the first even actually called "Glastonbury".

    Sure, and they did have that battle in the past. The Pyramid frame actually got dismantled at least once and I think 2 or 3 times in the 00s because of it. I can't remember exactly how it was resolved in the end, but I've got a suspicion that the right to keep it up year round is actually written into the festival licence somewhere (ie, it doesn't have permanent permission).

    Yes. Assuming you signed up to Trailwalker before it was officially cancelled on Wednesday that is.
  9. Nope. To be honest they're one of those acts that are around every year, but rarely play. Though it's been a while since the last time so some time soon could be possible.

    I'm not sure that's correct. Aside the cringeworthy act of writing a song about a festival they'd never been to (and then leaving it off the set list because they realised it was shit), I don't think U2 did that much different for Glastonbury. Most of the hamming up you could point to - the space shuttle thing comes straight to mind - was all part of their normal tour at the time that they did every night. Gorillaz weren't slated because of all the guests, it's because the set as a whole was a mess - if anything the guests were the one thing people actually liked about it. Meanwhile, "overdoing the fuss" has worked very well for quite a few acts - Coldplay definitely, especially the last time they played with Gibb, Eavis, and the Viola Beach thing. Stevie Wonder before that as well, with one of the highest regarded Pyramid headline sets I can remember.
  11. I've never heard of Thatchers having a good reputation though..
  12. They sold it in 2 litre bottles.
  13. But who would have actually played it?
  14. Loads. The earliest I'm aware of is NASS in the middle of July.

    No, they were tagged as an IOW exclusive. And then got announced for BST.
