  1. Yeah that track is sweet. I listened to a bit of Drukqs while at work and thought it was really interesting, but only got half way through and had to stop for a while and never got back round to it. Thought the opening track was absolutely beautiful so if he has other stuff like that then I'd like to check it out.
  2. Never commented on this thread, and not an electronic(a)/dance afficionado whatsoever, but I'm wondering if you guys think any of these acts might be at Glasto this year: - Kaytranada - Aphex Twin - Hudson Mohawke - DJ Jazzy Jeff - DJ Premier Also please bare in mind that I only listened to Aphex Twin for the first time about 2 days ago and know pretty much bugger all about him, so not aware if he's been retired for ages or anything so forgive me if it's stupid to ask if he'll be around haha

    Kendrick Lamar

    He's big, but he is not Glastonbury headliner big. Albums aren't critically acclaimed, could never do 3 or 4 nights in a row at the o2, couldn't play Wembley Stadium, etc etc. He has a lot of streams but definitely doesn't have enough of a cultural impact to make that step.

    efests Exit Poll

    So is this a definite loss for Labour? Not sure whether an exit poll is super accurate. Weird that neither me nor anyone I've spoken to was asked who they voted for on exit.

    The nicknames are more just things he’s referred to himself in songs that have stuck with the fans - although Kung Fu Kenny was definitely used a lot during the Damn tour and in his videos. I wouldn’t go as far as saying each album is different characters.
  6. There is not a chance in hell Lizzo is even remotely big enough to headline Glastonbury, what is this lunacy!!! ? she’s the new Macklemore, she’ll be gone in a couple of years

    It's incredible isn't it. I'd recommend watching a few others on YouTube from the late night shows in the US, as well as his previous Grammy's performance in 2016 (I think).

    Just saw on the GlastoFestFeed twitter, apparently on BBC Somerset Radio Michael Eavis just referred to one fo the two remaining headliners telling the DJ that "You would love her to bits"!

    Fucking brilliant isn't it. Regardless of whether people enjoy his music, I think there's a certain respect that should be shown to his creativity and level of performance.

    In my eyes, Kendrick's best performance: https://vimeo.com/253452173

    Not commercially HUGE in the UK, but critically acclaimed. His 3 major studio albums have all been hugely respected sitting usually in the top 10 of the greatest albums of the decade list, all pretty sonically different, won a ton of Grammys, headlined Coachella/Reading Fest. First album was in 2012 but tends to leave a big gap in between albums, doesn't release random singles mixtapes like a lot of other rappers so his return for each new album is usually a big deal. Also doesn't live a big flashy celeb lifestyle like other rappers like Drake, etc so he tends not to be in the news as much.

    To everybody unfamiliar with Kendrick, I can't recommend these videos enough. https://vimeo.com/253452173 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=8aShfolR6w8 https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=glaG64Ao7sM https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BTvV9JyNaS8 Please watch those (The first video if you only watch one), and reply with your thoughts. Incredible artist who will deliver a huge performance.

    Now I have no beef with Pearl Jam, and I neither like Foals or 1975, but there's far more reason for both of them to headline than Pearl Jam in 2019. The 1975 are absolutely huge worldwide and you could argue are pretty much the future of (pop) rock right now. Glasto taking a punt on them headlining as their way of putting the spotlight on the current leaders and future of Biritish pop rock is more likely than an American alt rock band who were primarily huge in the 90's but aren't of huge interest to most people outside of their core fan base nowadays. I can understand old rock acts being rumoured previously for headlining that hold more of a legendary status like Elton, Fleetwood Mac, Paul McCartney. I just don't think Pearl Jam are quite that big anymore........Other Stage headliner maybe? Of course I might be wrong, it's just my opinion, there are plenty here who'd feel differently

    Are people really believing that Pearl Jam are a likely headliner for the 50th anniversary of Glastonbury? Really???
