    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    We've decided the plan next year is to give me the tents, and as soon as we're through the gates I firm the advance party and run across site!

    NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Now that's something I can get on board with! No booze for me this sunny day. Prepping for next year's trek from the car parks to Big Ground by taking part in a 10 mile cross country race with a 35lb rucksack in Colchester tomorrow! Will almost definitely have a beer afterwards though

    Not a way I'd looked at it previously Yeti. While I'm firmly in the camp of hoping they're happy but have no interest whatsoever (basically any wedding of people I don't know) I suppose it is nice for there to be something other than dreadfulness on the news. I like your thinking.

    What are you doing instead of Glastonbury this year?

    Another one on the Beautiful Days bandwagon!

    That was not what I expected. I like.

    I could just add it to an ever growing list of things I regret at Glastonbury

    2018 New Music

    As always I have no idea whether this marks me down as one of the cool kids, but really liking the Spencer Brown album that came out last week.

    2019 Headliners

    If they aren't then they should be. By that stage of the day I could happily just watch them perform 'Drink' for an hour and half solid.

    Give it 10 years and we'll be complaining that the only requirement to headline is one album and two keyboards.

    If they consistently did that then absolutely it would err on the lower side of quality! Don't get me wrong I don't think it needs changing, but I'd certainly like to see them keeping us a bit on our toes

    Not like you to deliberately misinterpret a post for a good quip Calgon I'd argue that keeping booking the same bands would be weaker, no? I guess by leftfield I mean what wouldn't normally be considered "Glastonbury headliners". So yeah, Stormzy would definitely sit there. Whether it's style, size or mass popularity, something that might not be expected. I just don't want to be getting my ticket every year and knowing at least one of the bands I'll be seeing purely because they're always fucking there!!

    I don't think Glastonbury "should" reflect anything; it generally grew on the basis of current yet slightly non-pop bands, right? They certainly weren't chart monsters. Happy to be corrected. With the whole change in how we distribute and listen to music, I do think there's a case to argue that the midrange is where most things are going to sit, purely because things aren't so dominated by physical sales and charts. We have access to such a wider range of music now that the number of newer bands who would be considered a big catch is shrinking, purely because our attention is spread so much more thinly. Hence the return to big bands of yesteryear. Just a train of thought really. But yeah. Let's keep it interesting at least. I'd rather have an interesting range of stuff to watch than catching the same merry go round of bands ad infinitum

    2019 Headliners

    I don't see that either of those would be roundly pleasing. FM would fall in the "old and past it" bracket, plus the question of whether Lindsey Buckingham would be playing, and AM are one of the played too recently / regularly bands. Personally I'd be happy with FM as an option. I'm not a massive AM fan so would be fairly indifferent, but I wouldn't be spitting feathers about them. It's my favourite paradox on this board. Everyone's too cool to be at the Pyramid for headliners, but everyone's got an opinion on what should or shouldn't be there I think they should go with more left field choices personally. Glastonbury never sells out on the basis of the headliners anyway, so why not have a crack? The worst that happens is the twitter trolls come out from under their bridges and self entitled Glastonbury fanboys like us get to have a good whinge
