Same article that mentioned Paul McCartney wasn't it? All this discussion when we've known all along.

Yeah, it just said he's the bookies favourite, thought. It said Kendrick is thought to be in advanced talks, they're chasing Madonna, and Macca is the bookies favourites.

I remember talking about it when their article about Kylie came out and we were discussing their merit on Glasto leaks. I said at the time that if the article wasn't bullshit you'd probably expect Kendrick to end up playing but that their words on the other two were pretty non-committal, but it was a different writer to the Kylie one anyway so I stopped thinking about it.

Kenny back in the game. I'll take that one. Give me a ticket.

Stormzy laying into Noely G on Insta because he knows that hip-hop top two is coming so soon.

Could be onto something there..

Ah right, in that case the Country Winston threat is still alive. To be fair, Mumfords, Kendrick and The Cure sounds good for the resale so I'm all for it.

Holy shit. It's the same person who hinted at P!nk playing there, and Rock Werchter have a live video on FB scheduled for tomorrow evening, which is probably them announcing her when she announces her tour tomorrow.

Apparently he was right around ten times last year too, about acts and the new stage they had last year. Could be a goer. Says he'll be announced either on Friday or next week, so we'll know soon if it's right or not.

Kendrick / Macca / The Cure. Wow.

Turns out it's 6:55am, not pm, so we'll hopefully find out his P!nk info was correct even sooner.

Werchter usually announce on Fridays so it's almost definitely someone that's announcing their own tour and including RW in it.

Kendrick back in the frame- he's currently 11/2 as well. 

The only thing that I think can put extra weight behind the theory is the fact that Emily did go see him when he was touring over here.

I'd love it to be Macca,

But Stormzy, Macca and The Cure? 6 out of 6 male headliners two festivals in a row? Glasto is too "woke" (zzz) for that surely?

Stormzy - has he even sold out the O2 yet? Seems premature. The Cure is a good shout. I would have said Metallica based on their schedule but it seems too soon. Lars absolutely loves Glasto though and was there last year filming Bradley Cooper for A Star Is Born.

Eagles seems up Eavis' street - Billy Joel ruled out as Wembley is only UK performance. I hope Stormzy headlines Sunday night if it's him - so I can drive home early.  

Stormzy isn't headlining.....and Kendrick won't be either. 1 it's a 3rd year and too Glasto won't pay what he wants and by all accounts, Reading wasn't all that.

Have you not read the evidence. Makes sense.

Apologies but can someone give us a refresh on what the info for Macca was? I know where the info and predictions for all the others come from but Mac was so long ago I've completely forgotten. Was it just Emily saying he's top of their list?

Kendrick / Macca / The Cure. Wow.

So RW will be:

Fri - Cure / Sat - Mumford / Sun - Kendrick

Glastonbury:

Fri - Kendrick / Sat - Cure / Sun - Macca (I can’t see Macca doing Sat night)

Or Cure don’t play at all and Kendrick moves to Sat with 1975 on Friday?

Kenny’s back in the picture? For real?

DAMN!!!

Don't think I've heard a single track by him, be good to have nothing tempting me to the pyramid for at least one night anyway :)

I’m now wondering if there’s the possibility of an unofficial co-headline thing going on... Kenny only plays short sets so they also ask the 1975 to do a longer than usual set for a sub beforehand...

@Mattymooz make the poster please xxx

Not much point when at the moment the only changes is going from this:

To this:

And even then the subs and thirds could probably have still worked the other way round too

Hmmm that's probably a good shout, who else could do the longer set if 1975 do R&L? Would QOTSA still be around?

Already happened.

Another thing I’ve started thinking about Macca is that the Arroyo Seco weekend is probably due to be Glasto weekend, which is kind of an oldies’ fest in Pasadena run booked by the guy who books Coachella and one-time Desert Trip. It might not be Glastonbury weekend but I think there’s a strong likelihood of Macca there bc of the Phoenix date.

What he does at most festivals is books a 90 minute set and skips out early. I’m sure he’d do that here rather than any coheadlining guff.

Werchter is Thu-sun and they often have co-headliners so he could play any day that he isn't at Glasto.

From Lana Del Rey to the finest Lana Del Rey tribute act 'Lana Del Ray'. Glastonbury is not what it used to be.

That Pharrell set never happened.

The liquidity in the market on SkyBet must be absolutely abysmal. All it took is a couple of hours of chat about Kendrick and I assume a few people from here betting on him for his odds to shorten all the way down to 3.75.
