    I always think they’re about the same. OS Headliner probably a more fun slot. Its in the dark and subbing is a sticky wicket for many.
  2. All depends on your personal experience I suppose. I’m a total claustrophobe and headed up to Calvin Harris on Arcadia only to change my mind at the pinch point on the railway line but that was more I couldn’t be bothered as it was slow moving rather than feeling in any way unsafe. I was very aware of it being busy at times but I honestly think for me a lot of that was being out of practice, not being used to it.

    No Surprises is a brilliant song but it’s not a banger

    From Slang.net ”An awesome, energetic piece of media. People typically use the term banger to refer to a high-energy, tightly-crafted song. Bangers are often but definitely not always pop songs, featuring highly infectious beats. Whatever the genre, the true mark of a banger is that it makes listeners want to get up and dance - or at the very least, bang their head in time with the music. Over time, Internet users have expanded banger's meaning such that it can be applied to almost any form of media. For example, a fan of Adventure Time might say a very good episode of that show is a banger. In this sense, banger now means "awesome" or "a classic," in addition to its original, music-specific meaning“ So to stick to the original meaning before it got all corrupted, Taylor Swift has more bangers than Billie Eilish

    Same here. They didn’t pander to the modern expectation that a festival headliner set should just be ‘the hits’ or ‘a party.’ Kendrick brought the full Kendrick experience. McCartney was one of the most important musical artists taking us on a journey through his career (and nearly 2/3rds of it was Beatles stuff). I only watched Billie on TV and thought it a bit dull (to go back to the previous debate, a bit short on bangers) but it went over well. My mates who were here enjoyed it more than they expected. Thought it was a successful trio all round personally.

    Plenty of big acts cover their whole career. Maybe they tweak the earlier stuff but it can be done, they just presumably don’t want to.
  7. Not really arsed about chat. Play some tunes. I’m with Bob Smith on this one. A lot of people don’t like Kings of Leon but last time I saw them they crammed 25 songs into 1hr 45. Some people tell great stories, like Jarvis Cocker, but generally I’d rather have more music.
  8. More Sam Fender and less Limp Bizkit? More Glastonbury 2022 and less Woodstock 99? Sounds like my kind of world TBH.
  9. It wasn’t very big. Great set in a fairly grim setting. But the scheduling was a bit shit that night. She was up against Beck which I’m certain split the crowd.

    The other thing that gets forgotten is not everybody goes every year. Some may only do it once. For them repeat headliners are absolutely fine. In fact for many probably the perfect Pyramid headliner is someone they want to see but not enough to pay £150 a ticket for, rather than their absolute favourite act. Nor does it have to be ‘a party.’ It can be a sad singalong, a cathartic moment, an emotional overload, a collective release, or some combination of all of these.

    This is absolutely spot on.

    What we know will likely change a hundred times between now and confirmation. I’d say Arctics are very likely but Elton and Swifty far from certain. As much as I’d love to see them. It may be Swifty isn’t doing festivals and we get Dua Lipa instead. It may be the cancelled Elton date is a red herring and they’ve finally got something tied up with Fleetwood Mac. Or they may not be able to get a really old act and bring in Dave or the 1975, leaving Arctics as a relatively old act (first album will be 17 years old!).
