  1. The Martini Police

    BRIT Awards 2019

    “Don’t tell the Mr”

    Benicassim (FIB) 2019

    They'd have to headline now and I dunno if they'd fit that for Beni these days. Also playing Primavera so I'd have thought that makes it very unlikely too.

    2019 Headliners

    1/3. Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and Arcade Fire. That's personal opinion of course but it's fair to say that several on that list are amongst the most acclaimed and popular acts in rock music in either UK or the rest of the world (or both, in some cases) over the last 20 years. Unrealistic to expect more than 1 'wildcard' like Adele, Metallica, Kanye, Stones every year IMO. Where are they gonna come from? Most acts will be those on the festival circuit and Glasto often gets the most in-demand ones (with a few notable exceptions due to money, obviously). Agree with @Hugh Jass on the last point, completely natural.

    2019 Headliners

    You're suggesting *all* of those are 'complete tosh'. Maybe it's just that you don't like bands/guitars? For me, there's 3 of the best acts of the last 20 years in that list.

    NOS Alive 2019

    If she's going to Spain/Portugal, there's also Mad Cool Thursday to fill (potentially). Not abnormal to do the next night that far away though, in fact, the National are playing before Florence the night after they play Mad Cool. Still possible but as you say, can't see why it wouldn't be announced by now.

    NOS Alive 2019

    Tash has some great songs, have a listen. Jungle, Notion, Blackbird, Murder to the Mind. Looks a good performer too from videos. Also very likely to be at Glasto.

    TRNSMT Lineup 2019

    Who are the target audience? I'm gonna assume you mean around 16-25 but suggesting *most* 16-25 year old/generally young music fans won't have even heard of the Strokes is strange. Add to that the fact we're talking about them compared to Catfish, a band making music in a genre in which the Strokes are undoubtedly one of the most influential acts in, it becomes pretty patronising. Of course young indie fans are likely to have heard of The Strokes.

    TRNSMT Lineup 2019

    Why though, would the Strokes play before a less popular, less acclaimed, much easier to see, much cheaper, far inferior (last one is subjective but let's be sensible) band with a fraction of the back catalogue? It's expecting far too much. They wouldn't possibly sub any headliner Trnsmt has ever had, let alone Catfish and the Bottlemen.

    Doesn’t sound stupid at all, it’s a good question. Here’s the answer: http://firstaccess.foals.co.uk/npn/

    2019 Headliners

    Liam G - Saturday Janet - story said Sunday so if she's there it'll be then. And probably unlikely to be a sub. Streets - more likely Other Christine - Other sub (as per info) or 3rd down, won't sub the Pyramid Lauryn Hill & Gambino - possible but more likely not there at all Vampire Weekend - seem more likely to be 3rd down or subbing the Cure than on before Stormzy but could happen Conclusion - I agree there's still one slot open for a nice surprise, or Ezra.

    Acts Touring Around Glastonbury 2019

    Of course. But it's not Brexit causing that. In the context of festivals and gigs, it's a natural distinction and is common.

    First poster game - pick 20

    The Killers The Cure The Streets Liam Gallagher Chemical Brothers Tame Impala Iggy Pop Tash Sultana Sharon Van Etten Camelphat Wu Tang Clan Hot Chip Maribou State Two Door CInema Club Vampire Weekend Interpol Jungle Rolling Blackouts Christine & TQ Robyn Edit - didn't read post properly, have removed the 3 announced acts.

    2019 Headliners

    That would be one hell of a shock at this stage, haha. It does look weirdly close to a 2019 line-up but yeah, that's 2016.

    Brilliant. Terrible day for the English language when the awful misuse of it was legitimised in 2013 though.

    Surely it’s the stature of the act that determines it, not the crew? It’ll be just a long a show with a similar set list to their bigger shows a few months later, won’t it? I’d expect to pay a similar price personally but would actually value it slightly higher as the intimate setting and being closer to the stage (without effort) trumps them having had more practice.
