  1. Yeah that was weird. We all thought it was rubbish until someone managed to text home and get confirmation. My mate got told by someone that Michael Jordan had died.

    Gorillaz

    Gorillaz at Glastonbury was an odd one. In its own way brilliant and also a failure. Lots of reasons behind it obviously. Seem them since, most recently at Rock Werchter where they nailed it. Give them an Orher Stage gig and they’ll nail it with a partisan crowd. Albarn deserves The redemption.

    Other Stage 2020

    Think they're more likely to be up against Taylor or Kendrick if they do play (which seems unlikely to me). Think against Macca it will be someone aimed even more explicitly at the younger 'Radio 1' crowd. I know Gorillaz are more modern than Macca but really they're an early 2000s band. Saw then at Rock Werchter in 2018 though and they would nail the Other Stage. The cobbled together set in 2010 was enjoyable for me, and great to see half The Clash, Lou Reed and Mark E Smith etc, but get why it didn't entirely work with a more casual Pyramid crowd. Think the current live show would storm the Other Stage.

    2020 headliners

    This was the same for Blur that year though and they headline.
  5. Didn’t they sub The Park Or something in 2017? Headlining the Other seems high. Edit: just realised I’m talking rubbish and it was a (well known) secret slot. But reckon more likely for a Pyramid lower down than headlining Other
  6. They definitely had 2 litre bottles in 2007, which was my first year. Remember the scrum of people trying to buy them. Was 16 and remember getting them with the mate I went with. Remember us telling all the newbies we had convinced to go in 2008 that you could get the bottles, but when we got there... they didn’t. Must have stopped either mid-2007 or before 2008
  7. Any reason why you can't name the band if it is public? Just sounds an interesting piece to read

    2020 headliners

    That absolute shitrag have not accidentally named the last headliner in the middle of a small column. It’s either an error or them making stuff up. If they had a genuine scoop for the 50th anniversary they would put it as there subject of an article.
  9. The biggest issue with 'firste entry' for me is the fact the people in campervans/Worthy View/Stinklinch don't enter 'once' like normal campers, they enter at least once a day. They don't take all their booze in once and leave on site. To enforce they would either practically only have booze on site for one day or have to set up an extra queue/entry for them. This would mean, realistically, people having to have booze checked on way into campervan fields.

    No. The Aerosmith information is solid as it was the band themselves who have publicised the date. Although there's some seemingly reliable info Noel is playing, when is just speculation.

    People keep saying to me 'Reckon it will be Fleetwood Mac?' Emily obviously ruled them out but people don't follow this. To be fai why should they?

    2020 headliners

    That's sort of my point though. They are what Emily is speaking about when she means 'not discussed' - but they're figured out on here because this place is a mad hive of festival detectives. There's not many headliners really who don't get discussed prior on here, but there's probably a lot in the real world.

    2020 headliners

    Yup. Every act has been spoken about on here. It would have to be someone truly leftfield for the speculation comments to apply to efests. Didn't someone even suggest Franz Ferdinand earlier in the thread?
  14. I imagine Glastonbury will try and have it pretty much as ‘this is the plan - any objections?’. They will know from experience the type of residents and type of objections that could arise so will probably be prepared for most issues. But regardless, it’s not necessarily a long process at all - example Anfield had a licence application for summer concerts rejected in August 2018, it was tweaked and passed in September 2018. As far as councils go, Mendip seem pretty sensible and efficient. Much better than neighbouring B&NES anyway!
  15. I don’t think the timeline is particularly tight (if they wish to do so). The plans to fit the extra 7,000 would likely be drawn up by the time consultation begins, with some contingency plans to enact in case there’s something from the consultation arising. Unless there’s a real showstopper arising from feedback the festival would probably be prepared to enact as soon as they have the go ahead. Once it’s completed and approved they then only have to put the extra tickets on sale which is a job that could be sorted in minutes. Also worth pointing out that coach tickets aren’t dispatched - they’re emailed out in June It might not be the aim for this year, but I don’t think the timeframe would be an issue if they were really keen to do so. But it might not be a priority right now.

    Other Stage 2020

    The late night areas are rammed as it is. Could they cope?
  17. Yeah the extra coach ticket stuff was just (reasonable) speculation based on the fact the expanded capacity had been approved and that the extra tickets were based around public transport. Now we know from that article that it hasn’t been implemented, so the numbers in the main sales were probably similar to normal. The locals had a bit more as the festival stated that. Speculation again but does seem like there’s 7,000 ‘new’ tickets possibly up for grabs.
  18. You still should/have to do a consultation for it though. For due process and to maintain good relationships with the community. It would be unnecessarily provocative not to.

    Not really into U2 but remember it feeling a big one and staying after Mozza to see what it was like. Remember having a decent spec and the start seemed really promising, with vibrant visuals even possibly benefitting from the rain. However as it went on weather made it one that was never going to go down amongst the greats. They were clearly trying their hardest and attempting to pull out the stops, but the conditions were challenging for band and crowd. Can’t really remember a headline band having to combat the weather as much. Not being a fan I very much doubt I would go personally see them attempt it again, but would not be against them having a second chance to nail it. It’s been almost a decade and those conditions mean they have as genuine reasons to repeat as any of the other ‘legends’ who have done it.

    Oasis 2021?

    An Oasis reunion would sell out their own dates even if Glastonbury was announced too. Ticket demand would be huge.

    2020 headliners

    Is this a thing? Never heard of Radiohead being cancelled because of the weather? Plus, looking at the line-up, there were no TBA slots on The Park.

    Other Stage 2020

    2007 - Iggy & Chems 2008 - None 2009 - Prodigy 2010 - None 2011 - QOTSA 2013 - None 2014 - None 2015 - Chems 2016 - LCD Soundsystem 2017 - A tiny bit of BBK on a wander 2019 - Chems Surprised in a way it’s that few, although would say Iggy, QOTSA and LCD are three of the best gigs I’ve seen at the fest. The Chems also were obviously great. Quality over quantity there.

    Kendrick Lamar

    People were definitely questioning whether he was more suited to the legends slot. Would definitely say the Foos got the least complaints in the outside world.
  24. strummer77

    Kendrick Lamar

    I think @eFestivals had a message from someone a while back saying something along the lines of that as well as Macca that Kendrick, Taylor, Noel and Aerosmith were booked. So that looks pretty good at the moment? Might be wrong there though.

    Taylor Swift

    Any reason for this? Feels like next week would be a better and more likely week to announce something really. Would think they will just be tweeting the odd election themed post this week.
