2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

Not sure how well most of the new Arctics album would go down on The Pyramid or how the viewers at home watching on telly would understand it ?

Mumfords were a flash in the pan, they're on the way back down now. They'll never headline Glastonbury again, they'll pop up at IOW next year most likely, maybe they'll even do a secret set at G to save face.

Pretty much spot on.  Will probably get away with doing IOW, Hyde Park and a JP secret set like The Killers did.   Can’t see them being given the headline spot again unless Glastonbury are struggling after a pull out.

Yep that's true. I'm not.

There seems to be an assumption on here that the Eavii complete some sort of quality control assessment of a potential Pyramid headliners’ last album before the deal is done. Is this true?

Did you forget that Muse headlined in 2016

There’s a number of examples. I can’t imagine them turning down a big act because their last album was ‘experimental’ and/or shite, yet people on here seem to think this is the case.

That post about the Arctic Monkeys only suggested that the new tracks won't go down well, not that they wouldn't be booked as a result of it.

I could however see reservations from the band in coming back with that one atypical album and not much else to differentiate from the last time, and saving their next Glastonbury headline slot for the following album.

The 2013 set was mostly AM-free. Point still works though. This album campaign seems to be at best treading water, mental ticket sales notwithstanding, so it wouldn't surprise me if they went away again after Christmas and shelved their presumed stadium tour for the next album.

I think it’d be a real shame if, after at least attempting to do interesting and different, the reaction forced them to retreat and fart out AM2.

Three songs off of it - the two most popular ones and then an album track everyone talked through - and the set is inextricably tied to the AM era so it counts for me. When you think of how far they had progressed in the same time period between 2007 and 2013, (despite bewilderingly playing largely the same set lol) coming back next year seems crap.

They'll definitely be still touring next year tho. Doubt they're ever gonna do stadiums at this point but they'll turn up somewhere. I just think that Glastonbury is so much of a milestone for them that they can't just be doing it every time they change their outfits now.

Mmm. Turner’s ego is sizeable enough that there’s surely no chance he’ll totally cave but even he must surely realise how dearly the lack of choruses has hurt their rep here. I know Arctics fans are ridiculously devoted but it still seems unlikely they’ll be queuing up in droves to pay £60 to sit at the back of Wembley Stadium and listen to Star Treatment.

Yes I agree with you. Would seem a bit lame and predictable for them to be the first headliner after a fallow year yet again as well, though obviously that would be the last thing either party would consider.

Did Latitude in 2017. Honestly the last album tour went on for so long and took in so many festies, they’re due a return to Glastonbury before anywhere else ... obviously not as Pyramid headliners but, if there was an ‘edgy’ cool kids Pyramid headliner like Pulitzer Kenny or Elton John, they could quite easily headline Other.

You've not been doing fuck all. You're making up shit for your imaginary imagination. You're bothered about rep on here for most people who you don't meet whereas I couldn't give an arse

Is there any intel that puts Stormzy in a headliner position? We’re only guessing at a headliner slot because he subbed Other last year, aren’t we?

Might he actually sub for Kendrick on the Pyramid in 2019? I’d imagine (totally guess) he’d be happy enough with that.

He tweeted or instagrammed a picture last week or so regarding the pyramid stage.

😂😂😂 If I'm making stuff up, then my imagination can't be imaginary, can it? I'll give you odds of 5/2 that you'd be better off not posting at 3 in the morning! Also... "You've not been doing fuck all" is sort of a double negative, meaning that you're agreeing with me. Hang on - I'm cutting those odds to evens! 😄

He posted Noel’s quote about hip hop at Glastonbury. Stormzy didn’t specifically reference headlining, but the quote was of course a throw back to Jay-Z. It’s not particularly clear either way.

I agree with you though - I think he’d be more than happy subbing the Pyramid. I don’t think he would demand to headline, and I also don’t think the Eavii would go out their way to approach him to do it. They don’t particularly have a recent record of giving critically acclaimed, but smaller acts that slot. It would be cool and a good move away from the established names/repeat bookings, but I’d be very surprised. They seem to have too many BIG name options for next year.
