    2019 Headliners

    Well, at least it should be marginally easier to get tickets for next year...

    Toughest clash choices

    The Sunday of 2016 was particularly brutal - we had basically all been standing up for 5 days, the mud was that horrible thick slimy mud. I wanted to go see Earth, Wind & Fire, hubby wanted to see LCD Soundsystem. After Beck subheadlinibg the Pyramid we found ourselves about 15 people from the front and stood on solid ground. We chose not to move and stayed to watch Coldplay. I don’t regret it.

    We had the exact same dilemma but elected to see Blur twice in 4 days. It was totes worth it.

    Doesn’t the poster normally drop mid-week?

    Latitude 2019

    I’m chairing a meeting that starts at 9.30 this morning so if the news could leak out 5 mins early that would be very handy for me!!

    Latitude are announcing on Thursday and they have The Strokes down as a rumour - if Latitude announce them as a headliner then surely that will put to bed the idea of them headlining the pyramid?

    But the difference is that Kasabian have quite a lot of big tunes. The Strokes would have to play Last Nite on repeat for two hours... 🙊

    I’m sure at this stage Glastonbury aren’t so out if options that they would resort to settling - remember 2015 when The Who cancelled a show in France to headline?!

    Also in terms of suggestions of The 1975, Foals etc... does Stormzy’s booking not made them quite unlikely? I know the festival has a history of bumping bands up to headliner status, but have they ever done two in one year? Edit - when I say “bumping up”, I’m talking about those bands who haven’t been headlining any of the major festivals. I know there’s been plenty of years recently when we’ve had more than one act new to headlining Glastonbury, but example 2014, Kasabian had pretty much headlined every other major festival in the UK by that point.

    I just can’t see it being The Strokes. I am sure they are playing somewhere but not headlining the Pyramid. If Stormzy is Friday and we’re fairly sure that The Cure are Sunday then the mystery headliner is Saturday, which is usually the big name “BBC pleaser”. No offence to The Strokes or anything but I’m not sure that the beeb are going to be showing a 2 hour headline set from them!

    The Eagles are playing Wembley on 23rd June, are we aware of this?

    Am I the only one who is absolutely LOVING that it’s January and we are back to wild speculation? ... NOW it feels like the build up to poster day!

    Killers headlined Latitude last year, is it not a bit of a leap from that to headlining the Pyramid?

    I seem to recall that there isn’t much possibility of them ever headlining due to badger related beef between Michael and Brian May. But I may be wrong!
