  1. The longer he stays the better, he’s poison for them now. Only question is when they’ll ditch him. They all knew he was a bullshitter and a fraud and hitched their wagon to his Brexit train, so their hands are dirty as well, but they all supported the Poll Tax in public 32 years ago and had no qualms about ditching Thatcher.
  2. Man, those were dark days. I put it in as an acknowledged caveat but you’re right, it’s something they shouldn’t worry about too much. There will always be unhappy people whatever they do (and that applies to almost anything). It doesn’t necessarily correlate to what happens at the festival and Emily needs to follow her instincts. In this case I actually think it would be worth riling those people up to have two women on top of the bill.
  3. I hope they do that. Not a huge Dua fan (props to Levitating though, obv) and not into Eilish at all personally. Plus there’s be a lot of foot stamping and hissyfitting on some parts of the Internet. But two female headliners really sends a positive statement and they’re both worthy of the slot.
  4. Oh I’m still optimistic he’s playing and I’m not saying he *is* ruled out. Billie/Kendrick/Macca is a great set of headliners. It’s just if he isn’t doing it then there’s no obvious replacement is there, certainly not judging by the debate on here.
  5. If Kendrick has backed out/moved to 2023 it’s wide open in terms of a replacement isn’t it? Im still convinced McCartney will do it but possibly Sunday. But that leaves Saturday night wide open with not that many obvious options from people’s tour dates.
  6. Agree. Macca some where not doing anything else doesn’t mean much. He just does what he feels like. I still think he’s in but maybe on the Sunday with someone more contemporary on the Saturday.
  7. I missed this as well 🤷‍♂️
  8. What did Stevie say?
  9. Favourite venues:- Nottingham Rock City (hard to argue with those saying it’s the best. It’s just got *it* right, whatever it is). Glasgow Barrowlands Glasgow King Tuts Glasgow Academy is a good space though the drinks choices are a bit shit. Manchester Apollo
  10. Nope. Don’t get it. Bit disappointed about Swift not playing. But it is what it is. Not every Glastonbury headliner has to appeal to me. Or others of similar age/gender.
  11. Hey, I like them, I bought Glasgow tickets yesterday morning. Just think they’d be a slightly underwhelming Glastonbury headliner these days, even if I suspect they will get another crack at it some day. Subbing someone mega huge like a Macca or Elton, or headlining the Other against pop on the Pyramid wouldn’t be a bad gig for them.
  12. Can’t see it unless they’re a last minute replacement. Are they self aware enough to headline Other or sub the Pyramid? Don't take this as any kind of useful source but back in 2019 a friend of a friend of a friend who worked at the time for DF Concerts (who put on TRNSMT) told me KOL’s 2020 tour dates were worked around opening the Pyramid as a special guest. Take that with the hugest piece of salt imaginable as there’s not really any reason they should know that but this is the home of baseless speculation, right?

    Taylor Swift

    Hadn’t listened to it in ages. I don’t know why. What a tune.
  14. Muse was odd. Where I was (left hand side of the stage nearly level with the screen, in line with the mixing desk) it was deserted at the start, filled up about 10 minutes in then thinned out about 40 minutes later. I left at that point with quite a lot of others. But as others have said it’s very common for the size of these headliner crowds to ebb and change.
  15. It definitely seems to be a serious problem in the States and it’s fascinating how it traces back to the instinctive anti-Government feeling many of them carry. Not that we’re immune, I have a mate who’s had his first jab but now won’t have his second. Does he think the Micro Chips get injected into his blood on the second one?
  16. All sorts of crazy theories and ‘medical’ ‘treatments’ have been expounded over the years at Glastonbury, many by people who have also contributed a lot to the festival. But I get it, I’m getting old, things change. Im entirely pro-Vaccine but don’t feel threatened by anti-Vaxxers. However, a lot of the time now we collectively eschew debate in favour of censoring dissenting voices. The world changes, the festival changes, hey ho.
  17. Yeah sometimes you have to go with your instincts. They’re often right. I did it on the Sunday in 2019, I’d decided on Janelle Monae but when it became clear I’d be on my own I changed last minute and went to The Cure. That turned out to be a life changer.
  18. It absolutely would. I never previously thought it might be deliberate but it actually makes perfect sense.
  19. That was the first time ever I actually did the ‘going to the SE Corner early’ thing. Stormzy looked like a great set and I was dead pleased he pulled it off but no regrets here, had a fantastic night.

    Noel Gallager

    Same here. Almost completely missed Noels solo stuff, I think because of how bad Oasis were for the last few years. However I listened to that High Flying Birds Best of he released this year and he’s actually done a lot of good songs. Way above post-1996 Oasis.

    Noel Gallager

    I wouldn’t put him down as a TBC but I’ll be amazed if it doesn’t happen now. He was booked last time and has said he wants to do next year. As easy as it get from GFLs POV.

    First Gig Back

    I’m going to the Glasgow gig tonight. Sounds good. Will try and get there early as have to show proof of my Covid infection a few weeks ago but depends on elderly babysitters.
