    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    I didn't see this posted, but my apologies if this is old news. Foals and Gang of Youths in Spain the weekend after Glastonbury. Foals isn't really a surprise, but Gang of Youths would be delightful.

    GBV at Glastonbury would be extraordinary, but I can't see them staying in Europe for all of June.... <sad emoji>

    2019 Headliners

    Well....yes, only half joking. I know who Flume is. Though, it came a year after the same festival had AF/LCD/Killers as headliners. People were expecting something more along those lines.

    2019 Headliners

    Agreed. I think a lot of the newer festivals over here were backed with business plans that promised they'd be making money within 3 years. When that doesn't happen, the plug gets pulled. Wayhome (near Toronto) is a good example. Pretty solid line ups in 2015 (Kendrick, Neil Young) and 2016 (Arcade Fire, LCD Soundsystem, Killers). In 2017 they cut one of the four stages, and had someone called Flume headlining. It did not return. The North American festivals are just all kind of the same. Last year, there seemed to be a pool of a few dozen bands that were interchangeable between every festival.

    @dixietheduck Any luck? I didn't get anywhere close, but my brother in law was able to get our group booked.....

    I'm pretty sure it doesn't matter. The past few years, our booking group has been mixed UK and Canada. Some years someone in the UK has gotten through and made payment, some years it has been me here in Canada.

    Yes, thank you for the explanation! That makes sense....

    Is the IP address that you need to include in the host file available for this year yet, or does this get updated closer to ticket day? I ran a DNS lookup on glastonbury.seetickets.com and had three IP addresses returned.
