Stormzy

Madonna

 

That has been my guess for a while + I'm sticking with it.

 

Liam Gallagher, Wolf Alice and  Dua Lipa subbing.

It seems a solid prediction were it not for the info on The Cure and Macca.

And if it was that trio now, I think I'd feel a touch disappointed given we could have had The Cure and Macca, though I'm sure I'd see them all anyway.

How long does Macca normally play for? Just looked at his set from a couple of days ago and he played 39 songs. Guessing he'd get 2 hours at Glastonbury?

erm, what? :blink::lol: 

The Cure were massive back then (much bigger than now), and another headliner that year - Psychedelic Furs - were (briefly) just about the biggest band in the world at that time (which is why they buggered off to the USA just after).

Don’t know about massive. They were chart regulars, but then so were the likes of the Bunnymen, Smiths, etc. 

What I meant was, GF attracts the biggest names now, back then it could never have got the huge names selling out stadiums at the time - Springsteen, Stones etc. (whatever the 80’s equivalent of Foos, Sheeran, Adele etc were). Their headliners were from the next rung down, and the Cure and Psychedelic Furs belonged there.

In 2004 he dropped to just the 33 songs, the lightweight.

Madonna, Prince, Jacko, U2

I tend to agree that the scale of headliners is bigger now than back in the day, which is what makes The Cure a curious choice.  They're simultaneously a heritage act and an old skool 80s-esque Doc Martens and black Levis choice.

What are the dates either side of Glastonbury for these?, I know the Italian one on the 17th June and then another deep into July Greece?

See more people are thinking Dua may sub, I don't see Wolf Alice subbing at all myself though. I think they can get 3rd down or sub Other but they would be lost subbing imo.

This show was warm hazlet.

Everyone knows Travis Scott is the hip-hop headliner Emily Eavis needs to be booking now anyway.

I think the cure selling out Hyde park so quickly and it being a very good gig has boosted them up another notch.

Indeed, that's what I think had made Glastonbury grab them as one of the older acts one more time in their moment before it goes. Not sure I'd go to see them even myself

Wolf Alice have played three festivals in a row and are winding down VOAL after their Christmas gigs. They won’t be there next year.

If that’s all it takes we could end up with Michael Buble too.

Sons of Kemet album slaps.

I feel like I've hard a lot of Wolf Alice songs, seen Wolf Alice at festivals, been played a lot of their songs by eager fans, and couldn't tell you what a single one sounds like.

Possible kylie is actually a headliner and not the legend? Just to throw in another name..queen? Got the film out later this year to ride on the back of.

I'm hoping macca info wrong and the cure is right. cure, madonna, queen. If kylie is legend slot for sure them Madge would have to be Saturday.

I don't see it, she sells a lot of tickets to her fans and does have wide appeal, but she also does a lot dates like race courses etc that Lionel does for example. He sold out arenas etc and dolly sold crazy dates but neither would ever headline it now. I actually think they've got 4th spot now to give it extra long to acts that have the hits but just aren't the headliner now.

I’d love to see Queen & AL on the farm, they’d kill it. Trouble is ME and Brian Mays’ views on killing badgers and the public spat that caused make it unlikely.

My guess is he'd get just about as much as he asks for.

You seem to be confusing 2nd Tier with Alternative. 

Back in the 80s Glastonbury seemed to want to attract the alternative crowd rather than aim for the huge popular names. The Cure were arguably the biggest alternative band around back then.

At the 2004 show he said he wanted to carry on all night but he wasn't allowed to 🙁

I disagree. The festival has always been about contemporary arts and I don’t really see much, if any, difference in the variety of acts it attracts to perform each year. I don’t remember it being any more alternative in the 80’s than it is now - there were as many mainstream chart acts of the time (Amazulu, Funboy Three, King, Level 42,  UB40 etc) playing as the likes of The Smiths, The Cure etc.  The obvious difference though is the size of it. The first year I went (1983) I think there were about 30k punters; now it’s more than 5 times that. They can now attract  the biggest names going; they couldn’t then, but I’ve no doubt they would have if they could.

Mumford & Sons

I was talking to Winston from Mumford & Sons yesterday (long story), and he said they'd not yet been asked to play Glastonbury "but would love to be asked."
