2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

After the very positive reviews of their show at BST I feel as if The Cure will are back on the cards in 2019/2020. I know there is some bad feeling, but it's starting to make sense.

 

Hoping for: The Cure, Arcade Fire & Someone else.

I had thought Elton was a nap for the legends slot either next year or the year after.

Watched his Bbc iplayer thing with Annie Mac last night about his revamp greatest hits thing and I’m now going with him getting the top slot on Sunday.

Some nice covers on the new album I thought. Elton with some special guests would be a great way to go out and for me, well deserved.

Still think Madonna is in with a shout, based on nothing other than Emily following her on Insta.

Would mean the line up was less of a sausage fest too. 

Kendrick - Madonna - P-Mac or Fleet Mac

Tbh man, I don't think that line-up would be less sausage fest....like them or not, a majority will choose Madonna or FM over nearly anyway else due to paying crazy fees elsewhere.

My personal opinion is we'll only get one of Mad/Mac, we'll get Arctics I feel and at a low fee also because they love it....I feel Arctics are one of those that have made it huge now but they know and get Glasto....a bit like Muse when they said in an interview a while back they'd play it every year if they could. But I mean towards The 1975 actually for price wise over Kendrick as one of those other two will cost a lot!

He's only available on the Friday next year btw, and he's in America the following day.

How does Madonna in place of Paul McCartney not make it any less of a sausage fest? Do you know what sausage fest means?

I don`t sorry. Watched on the iplayer on my tv. Radio1 thing with annie mac and Reg pulling out vinyls of his favourite tunes plus some of his songs that are covered on the new re-jig album. Worth a watch if you can find it.....in my opinion.

Oh yeah I have no doubt there would be more interesting/better acts they could book instead. I was just responding to the suggestion that they haven't got enough new material since they last headlined, when in fact they've released two studio albums - same as Muse between 2010 and 2016. I'm aware that their 2013 set was of the AM era though, so that could be used as a case against them. However, I do still think they're a pretty likely booking.

exactly, if Muse can be asked back after 2 dogshit albums, and singles that either barely charted, or didn't at all, then Arctic Monkeys, who actually had some top-20 hits between their 2 albums, certainly can. Arctic Money's last 2 albums have far outsold Muse's, even with the latter having a few years headstart...

Would Paolo Nutini be big enough to headline yet or is he just a sub? Hasn't played in a while and should have music coming soonish (will have been 5 years when Glasto rolls around). He last played 3rd down pyramid in 2011, so hasn't even played with Caustic Love yet let alone new stuff, seems like he should at least get the bump to sub if not headline.

He subbed the Other Stage in 2014.

I wouldn't really class Muse as a valid comparison, given that they've had a whole album and album tour in between the tours that they did Glastonbury on.

If you think about it in Arctic Monkeys terms; if they played next year, it'd be the same gap as between the last two headline slots. Now think about the difference between Arctic Monkeys in 2007 and the band in 2013, then think about what would be different next year. They might even be the ones who feel it's too soon.

I'm going for AM, Madonna and Paul McCartney...other stage the streets, QOTSA and the 1975 probably completely wrong though haha.

I was just going off of his placement in 2011 and how well I remember his last album going down. If he was 3rd down Pyramid then, his last album could have bumped him up to sub and a new one up to headliner. Either way ignore it now

This is exactly the point I was trying to make regarding AM

Other stage beating Pyramid on every headliner, nice. 

Seriously though, for all their faults as a live band (of which there are many) AM would be a strong headliner. Madonna would be a lot of fun but really hope it's not Macca, ultimate dad rock headliner who's almost certainly past it, book Elton instead imo.

I do like to be at the other stage haha. 

Yea AM are pretty big, Madonna could be a lot of fun...only reason I put QOTSA opposite her is to replicate what happened in 2011 with Beyonce. But They might've outgrown that slot are a pretty successful last couple of albums. I put Macca in because a lot of people would love him on the Sunday night slot I feel, but I'd be pretty far away from it. Haha.

I'm assuming he's talking about 2019 as I can't see why they'd be considered as Other headliners without a new album but seems like Tame Impala might be an option next year.

He said in the same interview that he hopes a new album will be out this time next year. I'm not pencilling them into my predictions personally.

Hey all, late to the party, but I'm presuming Elton has been mooted and/or ruled out for some reason?

Just seen his tour dates for 2019:

I'm by no means a big fan but would definitely give him a go. Would be a pretty good addition to his farewell tour, surely?

That would be one seriously strong headliner lineup. Would also struggle to top it for the 2020 anniversary unless they can pull something out of the bag like a big reunion or someone they have chased for some time (naming no names), in my opinion
