  1. The festival is a holiday and a break for thousands of people - it's essentially a holiday. You shouldn't have to earn your right or be 'more worthy' of going. It's an idea that would be a nightmare to manage and administer and would possibly exclude certain people. It's a terrible idea.
  2. You’ll definitely be able to get a ticket if you want one
  3. Queue nowhere near as long as last year. Was all around the car park last time and constantly getting longer - and it didn’t quite sell out on the day. This year turned up just after 10, half way up one side and took about 45 mins. Was a lot shorter than two years ago than when’s Bastille played Our tickets were numbered in the 800s and the queue was very short behind us when we left. The Extravaganza crowd may pick up some later but I would expect there will be a farm sale followed by online to shift the rest.
  4. Nailed on I would think

    The Rock Slot

    I think Glastonbury have shown they’ll consider all these days. Also Green Day are a lot poppier and cross over into the mainstream more than Metallica. They’re somewhere between the Food and the Killers

    The Rock Slot

    I think they’d be like the Killers in the sense a lot would initially be a bit underwhelmed by it but that equally a lot would be happy to catch them and they would probably go down really well. If they were alongside the Mac and another I think it would work. We’ll see if it ever happens though!

    The Rock Slot

    Just checked and their last album went to number 1 in the UK and (if you ignore that weird uno/dos/tres thing they did) so did their previous two. Sold out Hyde Park a couple of years back etc etc.

    The Rock Slot

    Yep they are clearly big enough to headline really. They’re as big or bigger than loads of acts who have played in the last decade. They would go down well too I thought 2021 was a lot more likely than 2020 - but if they're back in the studio it’s definitely possible.

    That's because a 'new' band headlining on APE would be on a very clear upward trajectory that would be heading towards headliners (I mean Pyramid). I think Nick is great but although is popularity is strong right now, he is probably at the peak popularity he is going to be at. He's not a small Other Stage headliner in my opinion (he's subbed afterall) but I don't see him as an Glastonbury festival headliner right now.

    Yep. love Nick and the National, and they are big acts who could in theory do it if they have to, but in reality they don't crossover into the mainstream as much as many other acts and their show would go down a lot better to an adoring crowd in another slot - like Other Stage headliner.

    Most of my bunch were split between Coldplay and EW&F. I went on my own but managed to find some old friends I hadn’t seen for ages. Would say that was the one evening I’ve been to where so many went different ways and all had a great time. The end of a challenging festival and the right bands were all on the right stages playing to the right people. Mans that’s why The National would nail the Other slot. Would be one for the ages against someone popular and mainstream.

    Feel that The National are Other Stage headliners. I’d rather see a band like that go down a storm on the Other Stage than be lost a bit amongst the wider Pyramid audience. Feel The National on The Other Stage has LCD vibes of greatness

    I think mentioning just two implies they got more. It’s silly to pretend everyone except the Stones has got exactly the same amount. It will vary year on year as currencies fluctuate and different bands will have different costs, crees and expenses to consider. The ‘standard fee’ is basically a starting point and a guide which is pretty close. If it was a steadfast rule then they’d never be negotiating.

    I think that's it apart from possibly Green Day. The lead singer was on the farm checking it out so if that gives Taylor a mention it may well give Green Day a hope as well. Also I think R.E.M. seems really really unlikely. The band have been quite adamant they aren't returning over the years.

    Michael also suggested he paid more for Macca and Coldplay in the past (https://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-40273111). This standard fee thing is taken as gospel for some reason, I'm sure there is going to be variance when there's different numbers of people involved and travel arrangements etc.

    There is a 'standard fee' but in fairness there has been variation on that fee in the past, (and the fee would go up over the years) so I don't think Matt is wrong to think that's possible.

    I think he meant Glastonbury. Blur have toured and had a new album since Glastonbury

    I was thinking more in terms of where would they play next year - but then again maybe if the 50th line-up is super strong they might take a sub slot or similar.

    To be fair (as I’ve learned) Pilton info is crap for Glastonbury (especially if it comes from Michael) but there are locals have tended to know the PP headliner fairly reliably. That said KoL doesn’t make much sense to me and those that have tended to know haven’t said anything is sorted yet.

    People keep mentioning Macca (based on Eavis’ comments a few months back) but didn’t you hear since he’s not in the frame for next year? Or do you think there’s a chance?
  23. strummer77

    2020 headliners

    Yup. He could definitely play, but it would have to be a more niche slot for sure. Hard to think of one really that suits. If Neil Young headlined again (or similar) he could go before him as at BST and the crowd awaiting the headliner may accept it... but before something fairly contemporary - probably not. The sub slot seems an awfully hard one to pull off at the best of times. Maybe a West Holts headliner against someone huge but then he probably wouldn't take that and the crowd could be too big.

    Yep. Imagine the reaction this gets on a Sunday night...

    Massively different. Radiohead play their songs live in a way that resembles their records and did pull out most of their 'hits' for the show. I think Bob Dylan plays new arrangements and would not do the latter. He could play somewhere, but no way his current shows could succeed with an expectant crowd in the Pyramid headliner slot if reports are accurate.
