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. 

Third person, here.

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.

You’re probably right. I guess if we all throw out 100s of names around this time of year, with hindsight it will always seem as if we knew it along. 

We need a big tip from Neil, word from a tenuously repsected journalist, or a “my friend is mates with the drum tech guy for AC/DC” story to get the juices flowing!

But the next album sounds like they're going back to their roots, so far.

Really? I can't see any of those tracks fitting on on the first album. Unless you mean to early EPs which tbf I've still not listened to. 

For the record the second album is obviously better and you're having a bad time if you prefer the first. Got some bops tho. 

EDIT: also I might add that I feel like they're saving the more out there material for the follow up album next year, the bizarrely titled 'Notes On a Conditional Form'

I’ve listened to neither album and won’t listen to the new one, but I can still see they’re big enough to headline come June.

No I meant because the new songs are bad just like their first album, cos we were all agreeing on the quality of the debut. I guess it wasn’t clear.

Going to assume he's not headlining now, even though there's still a gap you'd imagine other dates will be added. 

On the other hand, if this isn't a sign then I don't know what is.

Yeah but mate, the title of his album is Egypt Station, and in Egypt there's...

Pyramids.

I’m curious - why are you assuming that means he isn’t headlining? Have I missed something?

edit: yes, yes I did miss something 😂 arse. 50th it is?

It's gonna take a date either on or after the festival for me to rule him out. He has to come over from America to Europe at some point. Why not between Wed 26th June and Sun 30th June?

If I do take him out, though, I guess I'll sub Madonna back in for him.

Macca ain’t doing Glasters with those tour dates.

The amount of time he's taking between dates that are much close than Pheonix to Glastonbury, not a chance he's flying back to the UK even in time for Sunday, I also very much imagine with those dates than at least Bonnaroo is happening and possibly even Firefly. He's defo getting Canada, Japan and certain areas of America done to be able to be in Europe next year.

Stormzy, FM, Arctic Monkeys
Ms Lauren Hill, Liam Gallagher, Kylie
Iggy Pop, Dua Lipa, George Ezra

I’m struggling to see why Macca playing on the Weds rules him out of playing Glastonbury?!!  

Can someone educate me?

If he's leaving it 6 days between playing Edmonton in Canada to play lower down in America, I doubt he's flying from Pheonix to Glastonbury and playing within 4 days. If you see, some of the gaps in dates between places are pretty much. Also he'll be 77 when that comes around, he's not going to get up on stage in front of how many millions watching at home and sound crap from not being ready

Just reread the first page of this thread, there was a fair few predicting Foals two years ago which seems so unlikely now. 

I’m going to go with:

The Carters

Madonna

Artic Monkeys

That’d be phenomenal but seems way too strong, sadly.

Heard he flew home the wrong way and went via China.

This actually reminded me of that time Gaz claimed Radiohead played in Germany because it was on the way from Japan to the US.

That's what I was attempting to reference. Thought it might have been too tenuous a link to understand, mind.
