2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

Been listening to The Strokes at lot recently, I know they aren't together at the moment but would they get a headline slot these days. I know a lot of their 2017 tour setlists were Is This It heavy so don't know how relevant they would still be. That 2011 Pulp/ The Strokes top two at Reading was class and would love to see that on the pyramid

Nah unfortunately they're just in it for the money these days. I really want to see them too, but when they return it won't be at Glasto. And Glasto wouldn't want them as headliners even if they were willing to accept the fee.

I wouldn't totally write off our chances of seeing a Strokes sub slot some day. Slim, but it could happen

Strokes would be Other headliners or Pyramid subs at best these days. Like others have said though, they only really tour for the money so are unlikely to come for the fees GF pays.

I think there’s a much higher possibility of them headlining the Pyramid at some point than subbing it. At this point, they’re likely to be seeing an upturn in popularity - like so many other band in the scene they were the gods of - while the pool of rock bands to headline Glastonbury gets smaller.

True, feels like people aren't that fussed about them these days but they'll probably come back into vogue at some point. Shame the live shows are rubbish.

I love seeing them live but I can’t think of a more awkward frontman onstage than Julian, he looks like he hates it at times.

Now that they’ve embraced the nostalgia, you barely ever hear about poor live shows cos everyone’s too busy belting the words back at them. They don’t have any tricks to impress casuals but neither do Radiohead, yet that went down pretty well with those in attendance, Ed Balls aside.

I think the casuals will always be waiting for Last Night but that’s about it for them. I still see ‘lads’ belting out to it. First two albums are bona fire masterpieces and I’m still greatly fond of FIOE, it’s so underrated.

Angles and Comedown Machine are the underrated ones imo. First Impressions of Earth should have had a few tracks shaved off it.

Could never get into Angles but Comedown Machine deserves so much more love, still a surprising delight. FIOE had Juicebox as its lead single and I remember folks judging it on that but it has so much more going on, was very under appreciated on release.

Here's my latest attempt at a guesstimation;

 

Pyramid Stage

Friday: Led Zepellin + Fairport Convention

Saturday: Depeche Mode + Daft Punk 

Sunday: Elton John +  Bruce Springsteen  

Other Stage

Friday: The Prodigy + Chemical Brothers

Saturday: Green Day + Biffy Clyro

Sunday: The Killers + Stereophonics

 

Although it might be a tad expensive;

I think Biffy Clyro and The Killers are the only bands on that list to form this century.

So what, not my fault no one who has is big enough/available enough. 

Because Led Zeppelin and Daft Punk are clearly gonna be available in 2019.

Who on earth are Fairport Convention and why have you got them subbing the pyramid?

Blasphemy. They're an incredible band. Pioneers of folk rock. 30 studio albums of cracking music to choose from as well.  Sandy Denny of the strawbs was with them briefly in the late 1960s...

They’re not going to sub the Pyramid

What is the point of constant lineup "predictions" that have literally no chance of being anywhere near correct?

Can we all just agree to ignore battleborn ffs
