See I disagree.  New Album, already touring, why not do it next year? Will he be about the year after?  Makes complete sense that it’s now. 

exact words I would have typed... age, all the rock stars we're losing these days, am sure he couldn't care less about 50th anniversary.

Decent chance the dates are cut off there because he's going to be announced for Bonnaroo (June 13-16) later on. It's right in the region

if he had never played Bonnaroo that would be a great shout (and a credit to your US geography knowledge), but it seemed like it was just yesterday - or past 5 yrs - that he played it (with the mighty Wilco on just before him I might add) and it's hardly something 'important' enough that he'd play it again so soon, surely. 15 years for something like Glastonbury on the other hand....

You might be right, but as mentioned above, Bonnaroo is willing to throw $$$ at headliners in a way that Glasto doesn't, and I would add that the demographics of Bonnaroo have changed a lot since he last played in 2013...they haven't really repeated a "Legacy" headliner before, but I think it's very possible...those dates are just lined up too perfectly.

And my geographical knowledge can be chalked up to being an American who attended 7 Bonnaroos before discovering Glastonbury...no special trick there

Not sure I agree but the money bit's fair enough, it was the "he's not done it for 6 years bit that still don't make a lot of sense to me. Do you mean they'll throw the money because it's been 6 years?

The 6 years is merely just a time frame I put as a decent amount of time before returning.

I don't see Macca playing Glasto next year, 100% he'd be doing 50th if he does it for me. We know they want him and he can choose.

I think if he is doing it, it’ll be 2019. Rumour was that two of the headliners for 2020 were already booked in 2017 - I think it’s a risky strategy lining up Macca to play an event three years away...

So What’s the realistic list to pick from next year?

Madonna, Arctic Monkeys, Paul McCartney, Fleetwood Mac,  Stormzy, Liam Gallagher, The 1975, Kendrick Lemar...... Struggling for other names but sure I’ve missed someone obvious.

Arcade Fire, Black Keys(Who knows when they'll reappear), Stevie Wonder, Neil Young, Florence, NIN, Drake, The Cure, Green Day, Gorillaz, Depeche Mode, Justin Timberlake, Paul Simon, iron Maiden, Waters or Gilmour

 

Some of these are I'm sure unrealiastic but just spitballing

I think only The Cure would be possible from that list

Neil Young's been playing again with Crazy Horse - it's anyone's guess as to whether he'll keep interest in this until next summer. Paul Simon's just retired - bit too soon for the comeback tour. The Cure, Depeche Mode both possible but I think their time has gone. I wouldn't be too surprised if Waters or Gilmour do it one year, and given their ages, it'd have to be fairly soon you'd think.

Gilmour has retired from big shows and Waters had he played Glasto would have fitted it in amongst his own shows . With the amount of musicians and production for his shows he won’t do a one off  for Glasto .

If that's true then FM are not 1 of those, Macca I admit less so but possible.

If his The Wall tour is anything to go by, I wouldn’t be too surprised if Waters does another round of the Us and Them Tour next year.

Depeche Mode won't be about for another 3 and a half years anyway. I agree though unfortunately, their time has been and gone. They should have done it when they had the chance.

Always asked for too much money sadly.

still don't think stormzy is big enough to headline! and hi year was really last year he's kind of gone down hill since

Not sure you can say he's gone downhill, he just hasn't released anything since last year. He'll be huge when he releases the next album

Paul McCartney has a reprted net worth of over £800 million, do you think he's arsed how much they pay if he knows it will really please his daughters if he does it?

Equally, why would he care if it was Glastonbury's 49th or 50th year? Apart from maybe Coldplay, I don't see any act being arsed.

Stormzy Friday

As yet undecided female artist Saturday 

Macca Sunday.

I’d go with this but switching it slightly:

Stormzy

Macca (with Liam supporting)

Madonna

I actually think you might have nailed it with that prediction. Everyone is expecting the 50th anniversary to be some insane mega booking but will it be, really? I was there for the 40th anniversary and it was great but aside from Stevie they hardly went all out bookings wise. I suppose you could argue that Gorillaz were supposed to be U2 but even so... I think Glastonbury are more likely to commemorate the anniversary in other ways, not necessarily through headliner bookings.

I reckon they try to ge the biggest/best acts they can every year and there's no special reason for imagining the 50th to be particularly noteworthy. They're not going to pass up a big act for 2019 cos they're thinking, ooh we should save them for 2020

I remember them making a big deal of the secret acts openin the pyramid that year. Ended up being Rolf Harris and Tinchy Stryder

In fairness, U2, Muse and Stevie Wonder was massive.
