2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

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.

Good point, gotcha

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

GP's posts are like Mein Kampf and Birth Of A Nation; there's an ongoing debate over whether they should just be censored, or presented in their original form, with annotations explaining that they're very bad and wrong.

The R&L section is weird. It’s like this place gone feral.

For the record, this is the post I'm referencing.

Take this as you will and it could mean nothing, but there is a guy on twitter who is genuinely one of the 1975's biggest fans has been for years and is kind of know for that. He saw Matt Healy a few weeks ago and apparently told him that they aren't doing Glasto next year (he mainly wanted to know as apparently he its his 21st Bday at the time of Glasto)

This isn't true.

Mmmm, thanks. If they were subbing they might not even be booked yet so it could just be that, and of course it could also be bullshit, but who knows.

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

 

Hoping this summons that one JP superman so I can spend 3 pages trading bullshit with him again.

This was my thought - surely most of the acts wouldn't be booked yet. Are headliners even completely booked this far in advance?

He could have been telling the truth when he told that fan they aren't playing in 2019 as at the moment they aren't booked... doesn't mean that couldn't change I guess?

And as we know, acts can even literally be announced as "Reading and Leeds exclusives" and then still turn up at Glastonbury. I'm inclined to wait and see, I think.

Emily said the other week that they’d finished booking the Pyramid Stage, or a first draft of it. I imagine most of the bigger stages are quite far along.

Radiohead were announced not long after T-Day so some probably are.

Most big acts will have their schedules for next summer already in place, even if they haven’t announced anything yet.

I don't think we can eliminate The 1975 quite yet, but if you do remove them from the picture that doesn't leave us with too many viable candidates.  I think Arctics, Macca and Madge seem like very good bets at this stage. 

I feel like in past years we had a fairly solid indication of at least one of the headliners at this stage. Are they doing a better job of keeping it under wraps this year?

No man I think that's just hindsight.

The Wayback Machine suggests we had Radiohead and Ed Sheeran as SR on the rumours page for 2017 in the September before, fair play on that one. 2016 we had Foos as a strong rumour and then Muse and Adele amongst some R's. And I recall the couple of years before that we were more or less completely off the scent.

If it turns out to be Stormzy then we'll probably look back and consider ourselves to have known at this point. :P Same goes with Emily evading the Paul McCartney question in an interview a few weeks ago.

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.

I'm confused, They have a great first album, a poor second album and an unreleased third. I don't think they enough good material! I'd be really surprised if they headlined.

But i mean that's your opinion and really has no bearing on whether they headline Glastonbury or my back garden.

What's your opinion then? That they do have the material and are good enough? Neither of us have any bearing on whether they'll headline but we can both have a guess at what the powers that be are thinking. My guess would be they don't have enough good material.

My opinion is the opposite, in that the first album was poor and the second album was great. Do those cancel each other out and we carry on back where we were?

I quite like the second album but not mad about the first, but the point I'm trying to make is that if the album sales and ticket sales are high then that's an indication that a band is popular and warrants the slot. It's the difference between facts and opinion. The fact is they're a huge band that are going to be even bigger in a years time after they've released these records, it doesn't matter whether you think the material is any good. It will sell and they will get bigger.

Interestingly two people have mentioned how they prefer the second album, I'll have to give it more of a listen. I just didn't get into it after loving the first so much. I'm not slagging them off, I've been to see them twice! But off the back of that infectious first album.
