    2020 headliners

    I'd like to think I have more than a "casual" interest in music, and out of the 13 songs mentioned above, I only know 5.... 60min Legends slot would be best for them IMO
  2. I hope they run buses out there and back from the city centre for the big events, too much of a faff otherwise.
  3. one of my favourite EMs tracklist:
  4. even less than usual grabbing my interest there. Four Tet and Bicep nights would be the only ones I'd pay for, Mura Masa and Aphex nights are decent too.

    pretty much none of us National fans believe they're in any way popular to a mainstream audience. Them subbing the Pyramid was a baffling choice for most of us IIRC. Them headlining the Other would be, at best, half full IMO.

    Nick Cave is most certainly not too big to headline the Other. I mean, New Order couldn't even half-fill that field, and Nick Cave isn't twice as big as them.... not exactly rammo at the PYramid in 2013 either, was it

    2020 headliners

    outside suggestion for smaller/budget/Friday headliner: The xx summer 2020 will be 3.5 years since their last album, British, female-fronted, already headlined Other and subbed Pyramid, another album with a couple of big mainstream singles could be enough to push them up. obviously they're not as big as typical headliners, but if GFL can shave a few hundred thousand off a headliner fee by booking them, and putting it towards a megastar, it might be possible. I think they're as likely as Florence, who probably won't have a new album out by then. I don't think they're that far behind Foals or The 1975 either, although both of them have the advantage of albums out already... It's quite possible though that it'll be after 2020's festival that their album comes out, so probably more likely for 2021.
  9. I know the setlists on this tour are fairly predictable because of having the guests with them, but their insistence on playing Hey Rosey and So Far So Fast at festivals is mildly annoying. Could barely be less festival casuals friendly. Seeing them headline a festival here in a few weeks and already accepting that everyone is going to talk through those two....

    Bon Iver 2020

    Acts like The xx are good in this slot as they get people dancing a bit with some upbeat tunes, similar to Tame Impala and Vampire weekend, so it doesn't matter if people don't know the tunes that well, they can enjoy it enough while they wait for a headliner. (plus those 3 have a decent bit of mainstream radio airplay). Acts like The National, Beck, Nick Cave and Bon Iver aren't really going to get the barrier hangers or the blanket brigade grooving, so they're just going to stand around looking bored. stick them on the Other and leave the Pyramid sub for Radio 1 fodder like George Ezra, Pharrell, Liam Gallagher etc.

    Bon Iver 2020

    yep, newbies I had with me thought it was great, Matt in particular. it's also one of these myths on here that gets ramped up over time, that The National died on their arse. Looking through the thread afterwards, most people thought it was good, just not as good as they can be, due to the setlist choice obviously. Sea of Love Fake Empire The System Only Dreams in Total Darkness Walk It Back Guilty Party Day I Die I Need My Girl England Bloodbuzz Ohio Mr. November Terrible Love Turtleneck System... was already out at that point, so it was Walk It Back, Guilty Party, The Day I Die, as well as Turtleneck (*shudder*) at the end that were unreleased.

    2020 headliners

    aye, here in Dublin they literally couldn't give away the tickets. 10s of thousands of tickets went to sports clubs for free (my small local club was given a few hundred), bundles given away on radio competitions etc. Still didn't fill the 2 nights. Enormous flop.

    would die an absolute death as Pyramid sub. Other headliner for sure. https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=gadEHvvVpYo
