  1. This isn’t true at all as the Stones weren’t going to show anything. That said it’s weird if the poster wasn’t spotted by anyone else and if they are playing I genuinely wouldn’t be that surprised if they subbed rather than headlined Other Stage

    Could they be a band that's on the Other? They would fit a lot of people's 'big enough to headline' criteria
  3. Definitely. It won't be RATM but I would think it would be a heavier act against Taylor. That or someone like Nick Cave, The National etc. (I mean McCartney feels like it will need something modern against him. Either a big grime star or a big pop act like Dua Lipa would do the trick.
  4. That's the timeslot though. Macca in a Sunday afternoon slot would be beyond dangerous.
  5. Amazing dedication to the cause
  6. Saw this yesterday as well. Thanks for including me (I think) although will have to pull out of the poster as I have been sorted...
  7. I don't think there is any doubt that he was nailed down until very very recently (100% between Emily Eavis' recent interviews and yesterday's announcement), but I think what @ghostdancer1is saying is that some sort of negotiation could have been going on for some time. I mean if they were talking to his people for 2019, I am sure the following year would have been mentioned in one of the conversations. When Nick said it wasn't happening, he may have been telling porkies, or it may well have looked completely off at that stage. Like all negotiations things can be on, then off and then on again etc.

    You could always book someone ‘big’ like Foals as Other Headliner though, whilst going for Macca, and if you don’t get him by Christmas you say ‘actually fancy headlining’. You can’t drop someone but can bump someone up
  9. People were talking about Dua Lipa. Imagine it will be someone along those lines. Modern and pop or a dance act
  10. Michael and Paul have mentioned it in the last few months though and they did chase him for last year. Is it possible he's always been on the list but they just weren't that confident of pulling it off?

    Is there anything linking Swift to Sunday in particular - because she's free Sat and Sun - or does she never play two days in a row?

    To be honest it would negligence not to stop betting after that tweet
  13. The thread was started in Feb 2019 and the days/dates wouldn’t match for 2020.
  14. Those tour dates are 2019. The days/dates don’t match for 2020

    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?
  17. 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...
