    so, Stormzy then...?

    One side says Grime is the new Punk Rock, the other side says Conservatism is the new Punk Rock.

    I think he'll win a lot of people over, like Jay-Z and Metallica did. Stormzy is pretty normie, but Fiat 500 listens to very normie stuff.

    Dark Fruits just listen to any music the NME promotes, which they've done with Grime a lot in recent years. Fiat 500 is mostly stuff like Beyonce and other normie type stuff.

    Grime/Hip Hop

    Would be nice for them to get an older, classic Hip Hop artist, similar vein to when they've had Public Enemy, Nas, De La Soul, Wu Tang or Snoop. What's Ice Cube up to next year? He always seems to be doing some form of touring.

    I remember Kings of Leon being booked ten years ago and people questioning the choice, saying they weren't big enough, questioning if they could pull it off, accusing the festival of being tight by going for a weaker headliner. A couple of months later, and they were suddenly the biggest band in the world, having then released Sex on Fire. This could be huge for Stormzy's career. Wouldn't be the first time an artist has gone on to bigger things after being "bumped up" to headlining festivals. Kings of Leon, Muse, Arcade Fire, Biffy Clyro, Foals, Paramore, even Mumford and Sons, none of them were "big enough" when they made their headline debuts at major UK festivals. Look at them all now. On the flip side this could be like when The Darkness and Razorlight headlined Reading and Leeds.

    I thought Dark Fruits Twitter loved Stormzy.

    Apparently it turned out to be some 28 year old man who made the whole thing up.

    Public Enemy were the definition of an "Indie" group though, and big labels didn't really start cashing in on Hip Hop until the mid 90s, when PE were past their prime.

    ? Chuck D is still doing his thing, pushing 60.

    2019 Headliners

    Demographic of the average Arctic Monkeys fan post-AM. I'm old enough to remember when Dancefloor first came out.😎

    Were there haters? They seem to be the safest, most predictable booking for any festival headliner.

    More like white, usually middle class, aged 15-25 commentariat.

    Arctic Monkeys doing AM in full for me.

    They seemed to reach their absolute peak with that 2011 Reading and Leeds headline slot. They look to be going the way of Metallica, RHCP and Green Day. A band that will always headline festivals and play arenas, but just don't excite people like they used to.

    I hear you, and I myself would agree that Stormzy is at least a more interesting booking than The Cure and Paul McCartney because he's an entirely new headliner to major UK festivals, whereas the other two are veterans of big shows and have been for decades. I do feel that if there really is a problem with racism in the music industry, then Stormzy headlining Glastonbury is a step in the right direction, but as I say, more than anything else he's headlining because he's earned it and props to him. Unlike Fall Out Boy at Reading and Leeds which I still can't get my head around.
