  1. The natural disasters. What a tag team they were!
  2. 😁Fair enough mate. That line up is miles better than this years mind.πŸ˜‰
  3. In your opinion maybe. Most people I've spoken to and on this forum don't think JJ should be on the top few lines of the poster. She's not a big name these days in the UK and is too high up the poster. If she was lower down near Sheryl Crow etc nothing would have been mentioned about this imo. No ones complaining about Kylie apart from saying she's the first legend to get on the top line. Dolly Parton didn't even get on the top line.
  4. As mentioned earlier in this thread, Dolly Parton. That's the best comparison you are going to get.
  5. Nothing wrong with the booking of Kylie and JJ. Imo and others they don't belong on the top line (especially JJ) at a big UK festival. It looks to me and others that they've tried to balance most lines on the poster evenly with male and female artists. JJ wouldn't have had that much of a mention imo if she was listed a few rows down with Sheryl Crow etc. But surely with there being more male acts at the moment it's pretty obvious that it's going to be difficult to get anything like a 50/50 split straight away? A 50/50 split is where we want to end up, yes but it has to be done organically and not forced imo. I'm not saying this has happened but if it has been forced then surely that is tokenism? The main problem here though is that unless you are a big fan of modern RnB or pop it's not a good line up. That's male or female.
  6. I think she's already made it clear where she would be on the poster if she had a say in the matter.🀣
  7. "2019πŸ˜‰ Still can't stop saying 'last year' for the 2017 festival myself. In fact I say it everytime ffs.😁
  8. I've complained plenty about the line up so far but I wouldn't for a second think about not going. It's one of the greatest places on earth and imo the Wednesday and Thursday are probably the best days to be about the farm and I for one can't fuckin wait.😎
  9. Yeah but he'd be by far the biggest act on the poster so it would make perfect sense for him to be there. Same with Madonna.
  10. The headliners are unimaginative or weak depending on your view but that doesn't change the fact that they are the headliners and that JJ shouldn't be near the top of a big UK festival line up, never mind the top line. It's obvious they've tried to balance the top line with male and female artists as they've done with most of the poster and JJ doesn't belong there.
  11. Tbf mate, Janet Jackson doesn't interest me in the slightest and I feel it's lets say a strange decision to have her on this year of all years. That said I don't mind her being on there but on the top line with the headliners for a big UK festival! No way imo. Marr and Wu Tang aren't on the top line though. If she was down next to Sheryl Crow or Johnny Marr it would be a decent booking if not to my taste. Also without the Cure and Johnny Marr on there the poster would be even more unbalanced than it already is. Basically, no rock heavier acts on there.
  12. It's easily better than this year though, although I haven't seen the original poster either. Just look at the headliners for starters, even if you don't like them it's obvious they're miles better than this years. Pyramid U2 Coldplay BeyoncΓ©. Other Primal Scream The chemical brothers QOTSA West Holts Cee lo green Big boi Kool and the gang.
  13. Snap. Pretty much this for me as well.
  14. Nick Cave and Doves plus a few more hopefully. Also one or two biggish metal or at least heavier type bands, not sure who it could be though. Hopefully Iggy pop.
  15. If you are into your mainstream pop type acts and modernish RnB then I imagine it's pretty good. For me it's poor tbh. Not one act I really wanted to see there. Quite a few acts who I like and will go to see but I've seen most of them before, most of them at Glasto as well. So, yes, for me personally it's easily the worst first poster I've seen since I started going in 2008.

    2011. I'm not a massive fan but my mates were so I went along. Wish I hadn't as Mike Skinner was totally off his face and it was a terrible set. He was stood on a box or something shouting to the crowd "I can see you, can you see me" for about five minutes.🀣

    Mate, does your user name have anything to do with The men that will not be blamed for nothing? Now there's a band that I'd love to see headline the Pyramid.

    2019 Headliners

    Not in the next festival they didn't. We've had two bumped up this time.

    WORTH A PUNT!?

    Foals and Chemical Brothers nailed on then. Not doing out deserving to get bumped up seems to be the theme this year.
  20. Haha, most of them at about 1 in the morning as well. Yeah, I'm on GiffGaff through 02 and had no problems at all in 17.

    2019 Headliners

    That line up and Mac Demarco still doesn't make it. He must be gutted.
  22. Did someone mention the killers?😁 Never usually bother with these type of things but I would more than likely (clashes aside) go to see this. Although, I could see this being wildly popular.

    Bloody hell, lucky your hands are still working. We wouldn't want the killers to get off lightly.πŸ˜‰
