    Park Stage 2019

    I still have nightmares recalling hanging around The Park on the Saturday night in 2016 waiting for Radiohead’s secret set. There was an hour and half gap between Mercury Rev and that Philip Glass “Heroes” symphony thingy. Seem to recall the thinking was that it doesn’t take an hour and half for a small orchestra to set/ tune up....and Radiohead could play in the gap in between. Cue a small orchestra setting/ tuning up for an hour and a half.

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Just been reading a review of a Suede Gig. New (well-received) album out/ Brett Anderson has moved to Somerset. JP Headliners in 2015, maybe 3rd/4th down on Other next year?

    2019 Headliners

    Don’t read too much into bookies odds. They are extremely small markets and a small flutter by one or two people is enough to make someone shorten in price dramatically. See the other day, when a few folk on here put tenners on the 1975 and they went from 7-1 to something like 1-3

    Feel your pain, my friend. Shaggy was shocking.

    Fitness for Glasto 2019 Thread

    Been on a healthy eating thing since the start of September and have lost nearly a stone since then. Another stone and a half and I’ll reach my target weight. Hopefully before June next year! Before last year’s festival, I went on hour and a half walks with the dog to try and prepare. Worked a treat and I was fine for the 5 days. Looked back my fitness stats for last year - did Radiohead/ Arcadia/ SE corner on the Friday night....

    Personally I’d be very happy with 1975 headlining (if, as rumoured, it’s alongside Macca and The Cure) Not a fan of their music, but being born the year after them I shall be younger than all of the headliners for the first time since 2009.

    Would be amazed/ appalled if it was. Let’s work on the assumption that 3 returning headliners have never played the same year before.

    Not surprised about the FM legal battle news - I’d heard some rumours

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    U2s creative peak, for me,consists of the first 4 songs off The Joshua Tree, the whole of Achtung Baby and the single Faraway (So Close). Can’t listen to anything else by them. More than a lot of bands, to be fair though. My wife absolutely detests Pink. Think it was the transformation from manufactured bouncy RNB star to manufactured pained EMO angst in about a year. Would be hilarious if she turned up next year!

    Artisitc merits aside, and I don’t particularly like this song, has there ever been such a gaping difference in the quality of singing from one half of a song to the other?

    Would imagine so - Blur must have been in their 40s by then

    2019 Headliners

    I started to look at ages/ albums, but realised my son hadn’t been fed for a few days. I think Ash and Coldplay are the only acts to headline after releasing one album. Strictly speaking though, Ash weren’t booked as headliners - they only did it because Steve Winwood’s gear got stuck in the mud and he couldn’t get there. Sure Ash played on the Friday somewhere, stuck around for the rest of the weekend and got asked to fill in as Pyramid headliners. Also think 1997 was the youngest average age of headliners (Radiohead, The Prodigy, Ash) Would imagine The Who, The Stones and Stevie Wonder have made this decade one of the oldest averages.

    U2 released an album called “Pop” - therefore I classed them as pop
