  1. Considering she is just making up all the Solo dates she had booked during 2020 it mightve been the situation that festivals Had to move on from her because she wasnt deciding on booking again yet. We’ve seen it happen with plenty of fests already with them booking new acts because others just didnt sign on the dotted line the minute a fest had to move to 2022. It worked out that there was a gap for the weekend and werent even sure if Taylor was coming back so they had Billie ready if need be. The get lots of credit for planning on multiple scenarios and having the patience to wait it out compared to the other fests. The others want to get line ups out and tickets bought. With Glasto sold out you dont have the same pressure per say to get certain artists booked right away. And I dont think Billie is going to keep the touring machine going though like some think. This is a 2 albums in one tour so what can you keep doing after that, just be in bigger venues pretty much. The setlist isnt changing really since its covering everything. It would just be a victory lap in 2023 and is that what the euro fests want?

    Grammys 2022

    The Grammys have been trying to get H.E.R. to be the next big thing for a while. If you realized how the trajectory of her career has gone, its been solely based on Grammy appearances and nominations. She is an industry plant if you ever wanted an obvious one. Tell me how you go from being a no name 4 years ago to getting your music lauded by Rihanna and the rest of the industry, then getting grammy nominations in all the top categories off a mixtape release in 2019. Then getting the same treatment in 2020 for another mixtape. Got a couple more nomination in 2021 and won for Song of The Year because of BLM and the Grammys trying to show they care about social justice. Then finally releasing a proper album which again got all the top nods this week. Keep in mind she is barely 24. You think Billie was getting too much too soon? H.E.R. has been totally under the radar to most everyone, but they want to make it seem that she is the hottest thing out there.
  3. The thought of a vip/golden circle is causing quite a stir isnt it. Areny you all glad you get to have a festival that doesnt have 5 different price points and each tier gives you incremental benefits which really arent anything crazy? Here is Lollapalooza Chicago this year year. These prices are before fees and shipping costs. So tack on another $50 and thats your final price. click below to see what each has. https://www.lollapalooza.com/tickets

    Doja Cat

    Shame she never got to perform at Coachalla in 2020 with her nice and hidden lower billing even though she was poised to blow up. I wonder how many minds would be changed if she had hit up a ton of festivals last year along with all the sales and accolades. But wait, its too much of one thing or the other. Lets leave it at this, she isnt Travis Scott or DaBaby, and thats a good thing if you need measuring sticks.
  5. Dont sleep on Turnstile, def a john Peel band early on in the day. Gets the blood flowing. Or they put em on the hardcore/metal stage.

    Grammys 2022

    If you think like the Grammy Panel its H.E.R. or Bennett/Gaga no contest.
  7. I would argue that Elton didnt get the call because they have Macca already so 2 legacy headliners isnt what they want at the moment even though it would please a lot of people after the Billie announcement. Elton can still pop up with Dua on Saturday night.

    Grammys 2022

    You must be kidding yourself. Clearly its going to Gaga and Tony. But in reality it’s H.E.R.. 11,000 people came up with this instead of 10 this year. So where do you nominate FF and Arlo then. Theyre not “rock”, so this is the only place to put em. Halsey the frontrunner for sure. St Vincent has won it previously so Im not expecting her to get it again.

    Grammys 2022

    They changed it so that if you finally “break out” you can be up for it. Same for Japanese Breakfast. Its really dumb. Dont worry, Olivia Rodrigo will win and its moot.
  10. Well youll never be able to go to Coachella if you think crossing £300 is way too much money for what you’re getting at Glasto. Cause those prices just went up to almost £400 for the lowest price normal ticket. Thats not counting vip which is double that.

    Grammys 2022

    They would give it to Billie again cause thats just the world we live in. Grammy voters would never dare allow Montero to get the top trophy. Just like how Old Town Road wasnt nominated for both song and record last time when it easily wouldve gotten both awards and instead just got one. I would expect Kacey to get an aoty year nod since she has recently won it and they obviously dont want her to dominate the country category for some reason. Dark horse is Halsey, dont be shocked if it gets some nods. Olivia is a lock for best new artist unless Doja somehow steals it from the voters over the next couple of months. And I dont think theyre going to just let Olivia do what Billie just did 18 months ago and clean up on the big awards. It would just signal that an 18 year old with a couple hits can get the top industry prizes as a thank you for keeping the lights on for the labels. And you’re leaving out BTS which is a big no no right now. Maybe K pop can break through finally. Also no Post Malone is an overlook cause they would put him there before Tyler.

    Adele

    She didnt allow streaming for 25 for 6 months, thus the 3 million number. Over 500k will be physical sales which is bigger than anyone. If she had kept it off spotify and apple this time even for a week there is probably a million on there for sure. Now to see if the vinyl sales record will be shattered or not.
  13. Dua is still in until the poster says otherwise. Plays the Finland gig, take a day and come back for Glasto, then jet back for Norway. Productions for Glasto and solo tour can be a bit different and its not that big of a deal. When Lolla Stokholm was the same weekend as Glasto nobody was saying those artists are out of contention because they were in another country.

    Adele

    Higher chance of just finding her there at that hour and watching Drag Queens lip sync her songs.
  15. Uh oh, Kanye and Drake together for free. Totally going ti go according to plan.
  16. Cause 100 internet people determine what 150,000 do every single time.
  17. Oh yeah forgot to update. Rebooked flights and didnt cost me anything extra other than the travel voucher they issued. Really grateful for that since Virgin seemed to have cut some flights out and the fares got ridiculous again after bringing back their covid tax. Although I did splurge and purchased exit row seats going both ways.
  18. The Killers are kind of busy being in California that weekend.
  19. No, I still want physical tickets for my gig tickets, but its just few and far between now. Theyre really losing a revenue stream with that anyway. Because there is certainly a market for people who want the ticket stub. Ive seen some bands offer souvenir tickets for £10 which isnt terrible, but its an option. Ive also seen one company that will make a ticket for you with your gig on it and such. could be a reasonable solution. In the end, covid has been the thin veil to put all of this upon us. I dont see how venue collection isnt an option in most places. Tiny hole in the wall clubs wouldnt have the staffing but thats expected. Ive had friends go to gigs in decently sized venues who had no box office just due to staffing issues. Anyway, youre dealing with neophytes in the customer service portion. If you actually spoke to properly trained and educated staff you could get clear answers. Thats why asking people on a forum like this is easier since lots will have had experiences with different situations right now. https://stubforge.com/?utm_source=ig&utm_medium=Instagram_Feed&utm_campaign=gct&fbclid=PAAaZLK81T61-d92gkwvGBOdFndDBRKZbCR9Cnd97iJluTzE3TZgW86vSlo1A_aem_ARSp8i249eE0qImZgWCRb2Fl7mU2lvRgkiO45hGcORSgLSKi9er-utivCyvqme9EKBj6dayUiAcVl1qLerX_y_uvgciAZHTQ1PSMLap7cDsr0g5k9wwAXYxUT4NkE3lkPi4
