  1. Lionel Ritchie is touring in the UK next summer... guest appearance with Diana maybe?
  2. I bought one can of water at the festival this year on the Friday afternoon when I was struggling in the heat with a hangover - I hadn’t been intending to buy water as I had a bottle full in my bag from the taps but then the people in front of me bought some cans and when they were handed them they had been chilling in the freezer and were all frosty. So I bought one and it was DREAMY - so cold, so refreshing. Still think about it regularly.

    No it won’t, we’ll then just start discussing potential set lists and guests 😂

    With seven and a half months to go until the festival we are already on page 433 of the headliners thread. 😂

    The difference with Coachella is that they announce their lineup before tickets go on sale, so people will buy tickets based on the lineup (or, yunno... to pose for the ‘gram) and therefore you naturally get a crowd who knows and likes the headline act. I’m not disputing that they are a huge band with a big dedicated following, I’m just not sure how much RATM your average Glasto goer is going to know and on that basis I just don’t think they would book them to headline the Pyramid on the 50th anniversary. I guess with all these things it’s subjective - my husband is adamant that Taylor Swift is not big enough to headline Glastonbury and that she doesn’t have enough songs - only Shake It Off - but he’s a 37 year old man who’s musical preference is indie, rock and alternative so he’s probably not had that much exposure to her music. Maybe the same with RATM, for whatever reason they haven’t entered my radar as much... I know a couple of their songs but that’s it.

    It is totally up for debate! They could headline Other but not the Pyramid IMO, they may have done Download and R&L and gone down well there, but those are traditionally “rock” festivals whose attendees are much more likely to be fans anyway. I just can’t see RATM drawing a big enough crowd for the Pyramid, especially on the 50th which is going to be clash central. When Metallica did it, it was a normal year (and they are much more on the mainstream side of rock than RATM) and they had one of the smallest headline crowds I’ve seen in the 11 years I’ve been attending the festival.

    Only UK show. Does a festival count as a show?

    Yeah I bet they were successful on ticket day no problem, they can afford loads of laptops.

    Kings of Leon also announced for Southside Festival on 19th June, it does put them firmly in Europe around Glasto time. Although I think they’d be Other headliners at best?

    The only way I can see them not headlining the Pyramid is if it was a secret set on at the same time as Diana Ross or someone else of that calibre?

    Apparently Coldplay are releasing an “experimental” new album next month and then another “mainstream” new album in 2020, so we may as well just resign ourselves now to them headlining... 🤦🏻‍♀️😂

    I was about to type that I’m under 30 and I don’t really know who he is anything more than his name and he’s a rapper... I literally couldn’t tell you any of his songs or pick him out of a lineup. I then realised that I’m not under 30 anymore, which is deeply upsetting!!
