2019 Headliners

If you can talk them down to a 50 minute hits set, then I'm in.

This from Lollapalooza 2013 is a two-hour set and I think it covers a lot of hits with a bonus godly Disintegration opening run. I would rather three hours but I could definitely go for it.

yeah that's not bad to be fair.  I could still shave a bit from it, but I am not a superfan.  I've seen them twice at festivals, and once thought they were brilliant, and once thought they were really boring.

I'd be surprised if they headline Glastonbury. But then I am hopeless at predicting the headliners and am frequently surprised at the lineup.

Pretty much this. How on earth are The Cure not a great glasto headliner? I mean, they're British heritage that actually has a lot of succes everywhere in the world. And they'e got hits. Lots of them. Probably more than most of the acts that would normally headline Glasto.

I mean, who doesn't know stuff like Inbetween Days, Boys Don't Cry, Just Like Heaven, A Forest, Lullaby, Close To Me, Lovesong or Friday I'm In Love?

The exact same could be said of Depeche Mode too. I'd love to see both of them there next year!

Depeche Mode didn't do any of those songs :p

Arctic Monkeys, Kylie Minogue/Madonna/Beyonce and McCartney... not particularly inspiring. Lucky there's almost always something else on.

Arctic Monkees look nailed on to me.

 

Other than that if I was going to have a bet - 9/1 on Taylor swift looks like probably the only thing worth putting a fiver on. Everything else I believe plausible is too short odds.

If Depeche Mode have been asked numerous times to headline the Pyramid I have trouble understanding why the thought is that The Cure aren't a suitable headliner?

DM have never done Glasto.
The Cure have already headlined 3 times.

(* I hope I'm right with that. I might not be).

Yep, 3. Not since 1995 though.

I saw them in '86.  That was enough for me to not bother the next two times. :P

Yeah but Coldplay haven't headlined since 2016, so y'know...

Swizzle's production probably wouldnt fit on the Pyramid so she'd have to conjure up a whole new show. Not necessarily a deal breaker but not exactly a sure thing either.

Same could be said of most of the big American stars, there’s no precedent for Madge doing a scaled-down show on festival stages either. At least with Messers Timberlake, Mars, Knowles-Carter, Fenty and Gaga there’s ample evidence they’d be willing to change it up to fit on the Pyramid.

Fleetwood Mac, Kendrick Lemar and 1975?

I did hear Guns N Roses are touring Europe again this summer, they are more commercially minded nowadays so would expect they would probs sacrifice fee for exposure  

Kylie for Sunday Legend

I doubt it, Slash is touring himself next year.

I see Kylie there but what a lot is another thing. Kylie and Cher would be great, I think I'd miss Dianna Ross

Tbf, Slash and Myles Kennedy in a mid afternoon slot again would be more appealing than GnR headlining!

Is there anything that would rule out The Cure? To say they are 3rd on that list (for whatever it's worth) there doesn't seem to be much discussion. I'd love it, but I can't really see it. I wouldn't say they are big enough in 2018 but some of you guys are better judges than me!

 

Edit: apologies if this was addressed 50 pages ago¬†ūüėā

They sold out BST quite quickly - I'd say they're a bigger proposition than some of the names being suggested here. Not sure how relevant they'd be to a predominantly younger crowd than that (presumably) at Hyde Park though

That's what I'm going for, come to mention in I reckon he could be offered the 3rd down slot that ZZ Top and Royal Blood did. I put Iggy Pop but he's had a chance to before.

Mans already been on the Pyramid doing Paradise City and wearing his hat. Why would he not only come back but move up the lineup now peeps can see him play with Axl rather than Alter Bridge bloke?

Because that bloke from Alter Bridge is Myles better than that bloke from Guns and Roses?

Slash is only playing the Eventim Apollo on his tour so he's obviously not playing that slot.

He's also playing in Donny the night before apparently.

Edit: Why is his entire UK tour London, Manchester, Glasgow and Doncaster what a freak.

Indeed.

Maybe Myles can kill two birds with one stone and hit up the Other with AB while he‚Äôs at it...ūüėŹ

Slash seems like a 'play once and ticked off' kind of act to me. I mean, what has he added to his setlist since 2010 other than a bunch of his (I assume) mediocre solo stuff?

Also Alter Bridge are terrible so the more we can keep them away from the festival the better (not that they ever would be booked mind).
