    A few of those bands would probably be mildly offended at their positions but I think they're fair reflections of where they should play. Could probably do with a bit more metal but that's what the rest of the day isn't filled in for. 😛

    Pearl jam for Glastonbury

    About much chance as them doing Glasto, don't seem willing to do either. Live Nation are involved in their current tour, and we all know how Live Nation being involved in GNR's tour worked out.

    Brian Johnson being in the studio is a huge leap from him being on stage. He's always had the all clear to record and said on retirement he might get back in the studio, but his hearing can't cope with being on tour. I'd love to see a Brian Johnson fronted AC/DC on the line-up next year, but I'm not holding my breath. And obviously they'd run unopposed (although just a reminder G'N'R didn't completely run unopposed - Neck Deep were on).

    Point taken. I didn't realise they were still that big to be honest...

    It's nice to have someone around to make me look sane. Keep up the good work....

    I wouldn't have Taking Back Sunday on second. Either an Avalanche headliner or a mid-afternoon green day sub. Between Against Me and Frank Carter on your schedule? With the greatest respect your Green Day subs seem a bit obvious choices. Could go a bit left-field (bar the top-two) with Green Day / The Offspring / Weezer / Dropkick Murphys / Papa Roach / Good Charlotte / Panic at the Disco /

    2019 Headliners

    I think you forget just how big Mumford and Sons were in 2013, they'd just released their second huge album, we're popular with both the young and the old and we're breaking the Radio 1 and Radio 2 markets with ease. The 1975 with likely be as big next year when the new album comes out, and I'd be surprised not to see them headline at this point. Although the next song needs to be better than Give Yourself a Try for that to work.

    2019 Headliners

    To be honest Glastonbury of all festivals is probably the one that should most be booking people on artistic merit over commercial success. Kendrick isn't a mega-star like Jay-Z and Kanye were when they headlined but he's still a well-known enough artist with enough success to headline.

    Metallica and Iron Maiden are about the two stock-standard Download bands you could think of. And Pearl Jam would be refreshing but they've been chased so long it's unlikely to happen. I really can't see anything to signal the festival is future-proof in that line up. I'd happily have one of those bands, but all 3 is overkill. I'd much rather see bands like Bring Me the Horizon / Ghost / Architects / Parkway Drive (although they're more likely 2020 given they headlined second last year) promoted to headliner status than the same old clique of headliners. Bring Me the Horizon / Foo Fighters / Judas Priest Architects / AC/DC / Green Day / Bring Me the Horizon / Slipknot / Iron Maiden Rage Against the Machine / System of a Down / Slipknot

    Aside from Pearl Jam, that would be incredibly unimaginative.
