    2020 headliners

    Not entirely sure how it would work either as bands do cover versions on Glastonbury TV coverage, without seeking permission etc, so how can you police her doing those songs?

    We've been talking about RHCP for so many pages now I forget... is there anything actually linking them?
  3. I think Metallica were pencilled in to do that slot mind. Then ended up headlining the Pyramid when a certain booking never came off. I guess the aim was to have Pixies still not to clash with them. It has obviously aged badly but it didn't feel particularly right at the time either!

    Other Stage 2020

    Broadcast information is negotiated separately by the BBC I believe and can go right up until the event (I think the Stones weren't going to be broadcast at all and then struck a deal) so don't think that is a motivating factor.

    The GOAT line-up announcement. The Stones being TBC but everyone still doubting it, the news the line-up was coming on the radio (at 7pm maybe?) and then listening to hear, bang on the dot, the Can't Get No Satisfaction chords...

    Yep just because they’re kids doesn’t mean it’s modern. Could be someone in charts could also be an ex-Beatle because their mum/granddad plays them. Don’t think it’s a clue at all

    Not sure on this either way. If they were scraping around, struggling, trying to convince someone, wouldn't they turn to one of the Other Stage headliners if they are apparently sobig? The fact they're in negotiations sounds to me like they are trying to make something happen that could be on the same level as the other two

    In 2015 we had Michael Eavis opening an event at work and he said they were hoping to announce the third headliner as early as that evening but was still waiting for permission - something along the lines of ‘they are a difficult one’ and caused issues before. Nothing happened that evening and then The Who obviously got scrambled to do it... He also called Kanye West, Kenya West and told me Van Morrison was playing (Which was wrong but think he told several other people that too!)

    Yep - and if the Other Stage headliners are genuinely very very big it isn't as if they don't have backup options in place...

    The Prodigy

    She can get another registration and try in the resale too...

    Oh come on if it's been posted it's not secret info haha!

    Has it been spoken about on here other than a wish? You would have to expand the Pyramid field by a lot though to accommodate a Thursday night headliner I think. The site is full on a Thursday and almost any headline sized act would get a huge crowd against nobody.

    Has the Thursday been spoken about anywhere else seriously? Thought it was just an idea on here

    Nothing to do with his voice though. It's that he plays new and sometimes weird arrangements of songs that alienate many fans let alone casuals.
  15. I think Diana Ross is perhaps big enough not to have to worry about those things as much.

    Would that fit in with the chatter about the rock/metal slot being 'big' for next year?

    Michael Eavis

    I just said that in my book people should turn it down. Only my opinion and people can do as they wish. Lots of people who I respect/admire have accepted them.

    As everyone should
  19. Opposite to what he was saying in interviews this year though.

    In the Rock Werchter thread some seem to suggest they might be touring.
  22. I think he didn't entirely get festivals to be honest. He seemed to have been briefed almost too much if anything - opening with Coma Girl for example was a great gesture but one that 99% didn't get the reference too. Enjoyed it a lot but I have seen him a lot better since (including at IOW where he understood the festival vibe)

    I'm assuming he means the act, but they do have a band too.
  24. Oh yes, that's all I meant. The local sale is a big plus but obviously as the festival's demand has gone up across the country more have relied on the extra sale which means some have missed out recently - hence the extra tickets. I imagine the festival are aware and keen to make sure most get sorted.
  25. there are non-comp village tickets which they can buy though. Those are in the new year. They are transferable. I think it will likely be ok. I think most got sorted last year and they make it clear they have increased the amount available. in theory, considering there were 7000 extra tickets overall (allocated against the coaches), they should have been able to increase the local allocation without the overall total in the two main sales taking a hit.
