  1. Just found these clips from the 1999/2000 festivals. I was 3 and 4 so obviously wasn't there, but holy fuck that's a lot of people. A hell of a lot more than the 150,000 allowed in these days. Why don't they allow this many people in any more? Looks like the farm could easily accommodate 250,000 people... Looks insane.

    Arctic Monkeys 2019

    I'm up for this if I get a ticket (or any legit way of being on site). Saw them at T in 2014 and they nailed it, would have been the best night of my life if not for Biffy Clyro two days earlier so would love to see them at an even bigger arena. Hopefully the Friday night.

    More like to be over 7 though (Tues-Mon) and 12 hour days (standard for much security work in particular) is 84 hours.

    How hard is it to get tickets?

    I know were a long way off but how hard is it to get tickets for Glastonbury? Does whether you've been before affect how hard it will be to get a ticket?

    What do you do out of interest? 80 seems standard for a lot of festival jobs.

    More workers and volunteers these days though? Which probably explains why it feels busier?

    Glastonbury 2020

    50th anniversary. Do we think they'll do anything special for it? Is there anyone who absolutely must be on the bill. Apparently two of the headliners have already been booked for 2020, who are so massive they can be booked 3 years in advance without any concern about dwinding popularity? Oasis? Elton John? Fleetwood Mac? Queen + Adam Lambert? Bob Dylan? Neil Young? Usher? Arctic Monkeys? Arcade Fire? Madonna? Kylie Minogue? Bon Jovi? ABBA?

    Biggest artists not to have headlined?

    Who are the biggest artists never to have headlined?

    2019 Headliners

    Sub the pyramid again. I mean they might headline, but more likely to sub the pyramid again. They aren't as popular now as when they subbed.

    Got it on reasonably authority Tame Impala are likely to be playing next year.

    Both, depending on what they're doing?

    2019 Headliners

    Nope. Any culturally significant act with a number of hit songs could headline. They'd be a weak headliner but they could do it.

    Fucking hell some of those people look like the kind of person When the Sun Goes Down was written about.

    And what brought you to that conclusion?

    If they'd all lived I think it would have took them until about now to actually reform. They'd all have headline solo/with their own band by now and then finally together these days. Queen are probably another huge one. That would have been one of the biggest crowds ever at the festival if Freddie had lived a few more years.

    Actually The Streets could probably headline: Don't Mug Yourself Could Well Be In Everything is Borrowed Has it Come This? Going Through Hell Empty Cans Can't Con an Honest John Never Went to Church Get Out of My House Wouldn't Have It Any Other Way? We Can Never Be Friends Prangin Out Let's Push Things Forward Heaven for the Weather When You Wasn't Famous Those That Don't Know The Strongest Person I Know The Escapist I Love You More (Than You Like Me) Trying to Kill M.E Going Through Hell Dry Your Eyes Fit But You Know It Blinded By the Light

    Kendrick Lamar

    She's just saying the lyrics though isn't she? If she'd just casually called him a n word I'd get the outrage, probably not the most well advised thing in the world to do but still...

    2019 Headliners

    I doubt The Streets could headline main. Could possibly headline other on pure nostalgia. Would have to be a good headliner for me to miss out on them though (if I can actually bloody get tickets)...

    Bon Jovi?

    I can never work out whether Kate Bush would work. She's certainly big enough to do it in terms of her back catalogue, but could her kind of music really play well in front of a crowd of the pyramid headline slot sort? It'd be intriguing but I'm not sure it'd be a classic headline slot. Wasn't Prince supposedly lined up for the next few years?

    Yeah, I suppose it probably wasn't as glorious as it looks from those fleeting youtube videos in terms of policing and sanitation and away from the main stages.

    Legends slot potentially, but he's hardly a headliner anymore...

    Bruno Mars? Sting / The Police? Arctic Monkeys?
