    What’s the current consensus on Michael’s stance on having them back? Are we confident the band will have proven they’re worthy of playing? Subsequent to the supposed “ban” or whatever

    Turns out the Chilli Peppers are from California.
  3. You guys are cute. (apologies for my contribution to the derailing of the thread)

    Turns out 17 year old indie kids are still having house parties and playing Chelsea Dagger.
  5. Don’t get me wrong - I get what you’re trying to say, but I think we need to walk before we can run. Getting “female” bands on then Glastonbury bill also acts as an incentive for more to get in the studio and record music so boomers can continue to make movements until we eventually have a pretty even mix of all-male bands, all-female bands, male fronted bands with women in them, female fronted bands with men in them, etc. Emily Eavis herself (and the Reading and Leeds booker in an interview somewhere, I recall) has admitted this won’t happen overnight, but even if it requires a tiny bit of lenience over who we refer to as “female” (nb. Billie Eilish, a female solo artist who happens to co-write with her brother who also plays bass for her, is not a lenient selection of a female artist), then it’s definitely still a step forward in the current climate. Just because a band has male members doesn’t detract from anything.
  6. For the record, all sarcasm removed, I am arguing in favour of Wolf Alice being a “female” act!
  7. Should Wolf Alice be counted as female then? I mean, their main songwriter, singer, guitar player, person with the best stage presence and general centrepiece of the band is female... but the other guys have dicks....

    My mum knows them. She doesn’t know who Tame Impala are though.

    Is that a thing? I think secret sets, big and small, are part of what makes Glastonbury amazing. I wouldn’t be too surprised to see multiple headliner sized (or near headliner sized) secret sets in 2020.
  10. Hot take: I don’t think Billie Eilish will play Glastonbury 2020.

    This could be a stupid question, but I’m assuming an RHCP secret set is off the cards? It’s possible but would be weird

    Just heard a rumour that the Red Hot Chilli Peppers are from California. Will keep you updated if I hear anything more.
  13. Just gonna leave this here. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/s/www.nme.com/news/music/stereophonics-waiting-call-headline-glastonbury-2157123/amp That’s why they’ve not played in so long. And will be waiting a long time to play again.

    RHCP would fall into the Taylor/Kendrick category of never having played the farm, yes? But didn’t Emily’s vocabulary somewhat imply the two headliners they had booked were both solo artists?
