    For the record i worded that badly - it was meant as support of Idles. As in I don’t think it’s patronising at all - the government isn’t their fault.

    Isn’t that the point though? Idles aren’t the government. They’re meant to be rallying against them and their ilk

    2019 Headliners

    Yep. LCD headliner Coachella and were Otehr Stage at Glastonbury. Editors headline festivals in Europe! Things change country to country

    2019 Headliners

    Yeah I don’t see the anniversary has having a major impact on headliners. It’s just who is about. They hyped up the 40th anniversary but 2009 had the better/bigger headliners!

    The Killers are clearly headliner sized, will go down really well and probably deliver a solid headline set that sends most onlookers into the night really happy. As far as headlining a popular music festival goes, they’re still a safe and solid choice. The disappointment really is that for us on the forum they’re a boring choice and a bit naff. I won’t be watching but it’s an understandable mainstream choice in my opinion with what’s on offer and the Stormzy ‘risk’ they’ve taken with the mainstream rock lot.

    Other Stage

    Almost certainly won’t watch them, as I didn’t in 07, but I think they’re clearly headliner size still. Did Rock Werchter and similar last year and sold out Hyde Park in 2017. Outside of this forum, in the real world, they’ll probably go down as the most popular booking of the three headliners if it is Stormzy and The Cure (although Stormzy will almost certainly and correctly get the most attention)

    Think this is likely although I would quite like them to get the 15 minutes extra the headliners get. Not a lot in their current gigs I want getting cut

    Despite the line-up looking weak, 2008 was a great festival. Maybe it was because of how slowly the tickets sold. But some great atmospheres.

    I enjoyed it too as did most of our group.

    I saw him at the IOW that summer. Awful festival all round (bar headliners), but that performance would have gone down brilliantly at Glastonbury.

    Fair enough but really not sure about it that. There’s always a negotiation involved and there’s quotes (referenced here http://www.bbc.com/news/entertainment-arts-40273111) about how he paid Macca and Coldplay £200,000. Would think he’d mention everyone rather than just those? Also he’s said things in the past about bands wanting too much/not being able to reach a deal. Neil could probably clarify better

    Genuinely never heard that before... and had heard McCartney had a high fee in the past. I think they’re probably more similar than most other festivals but I’d be amazed if it was exactly the same for everyone?

    That’s not true is it? Headliners have had different fees. I’m sure the Rolling Stones got more than Mumford in 2013...

    Janet Jackson Headlining?

    Lots of light entertainment people with no knowledge of festivals throw out 'headlining' wrongly for big acts who are playing. I heard people say it about Kylie.

    Radio DJs often make off the cuff remarks about people playing and headlining festivals. It’s not an official announcement channel so they can speculate like the rest of us
