2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

Fabulously left wing and with a short enough career that he probably shouldn’t be doing it yet, Stormzy being booked to headline would piss off the gammon brigade even more than Kanye did. I love it.

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 ? 

It didn’t seem to go down that well at their gig in Manchester on Friday....the crowded steamed out to the toilets and bars when a new song was played.

In fairness, the new tracked sounded pretty good live

Reckon Elton John is a stick on.

Never aff the iplayer these days. Where do I get a bet....

He's in Switzerland for the Sat and Sun and isn't doing 3 nights in a row all tour. Reckon he's likely for 2020.

Ah ok, cheers :-)

Hold that bet. 2020 it is then.

I don't think actual "gammons" care about who headlines Glastonbury because it is probably just a farm full of tossers to them, but if you mean the general whingeing public reaction then Kanye is just about the most controversial rapper and Stormzy is more or less the least, so I'd strongly disagree on that one.

I completely don't reckon it should matter in deciding whether he is up to it or not but I just can't stop thinking how poorly a Stormzy headline performance would age. Like, the scene he came up in has gone back underground again already and all other UK rappers-gone-pop who have made it onto the Pyramid are a bit grim to think about now (even Dizzee and he released a classic), and I'm even wondering if he'll avoid the next album flopping, never mind #3. But again, I think Glastonbury history should be more abundant with acts who were briefly massive and then bottomed out so I'm wid it.

Hasn't his "final" tour finished by then? The good ship Eltonbury may have sailed and I am sad.

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, 

They surely don’t. The last 20 years worth of headliners would have looked a lot different if they did, especially the ‘shite’ bit.

His tour will go well into 2020. He’s already said as much.

Wouldn’t bet against his last U.K. gigs being Glasto followed by a huge outdoor show ie BST.

Mumford and Sons are about to do a 2 year world tour (friend of a friend is employed on the tour) so here’s hoping they don’t have Somerset as a destination.

Christ, imagine being stuck on a bus with them for two years.

And then you decide to take your own transport just to avoid them, calling Marcus up with the excuse "I'm running late, just go on without me", only to hear back "I will wait, I will wait for you" over and over again.

Maybe Jordan Peterson will tag along for the ride to break things up a little

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.

Is Stormzy not a bigger deal over here than Kendrick?

Massive-ass 1975 tour just announced. We’ll see how ticket sales go obviously but no reason in my mind they couldn’t headline. Four albums is plenty.

Info in the R&L section from some The 1975 superman saying that they aren't doing Glasto next year (he asked one of them). Probs just headline R&L.

Edit: Superman. Nice.

Find it hard to believe they aren’t playing at all unless they’re lined up to headline 2020 but okay, interesting. Thanks for the update.

You do know the edit function can be used for correcting errors as well as acknowledging them? 😜

Lot of us in the R&L section were speculating that they'd only be allowed to co-headline R&L if they subbed Glasto (like Foals did in 2016), so it could be that not playing Glasto was the only way to be given outright headliner.

I do but when they're funny like Asians Grande and The 1975 superman I like to leave em in there.
