The post at the start of the Stormzy thread just says that because Stormzy is correct it suggests the other rumoured ones are correct too.

And if the replacement for Macca is a bloke then Emily's comments still stand.

If we're believing twitter though, his replacement isn't confirmed.. there's just been an approach

She was initially just speaking to someone she knew.  Wasn’t like she was publicising it

Yeah fair point. You'll have to forgive me attempting to become Sherlock Holmes, you may or may not have gathered that I'm pretty desperate to see Paul McCartney headline Glastonbury

I’m with you, very very desperate to see him myself

She hasn’t been publicising it! It was off the back of me and someone else asking her questions.  She isn’t gaining anything out of it in the slightest. 

No one really gains out of it but there was something said originally for her to be questioned.

Paul Weller? At this point I am thinking of possibilities.

 

Last time he played in 2015 he was a (IMHO) weak sub. Before that he was third down in 2007. I'm not aware he's done anything to deserve being bumped up to the top slot.

Is Bob Dylan a possible?

Unlikely I'd say but you could argue he fits in with the vague hints given on Twitter. My thought with Dlyan is if they wanted him, and he wanted to do it, it would have happened already though.

Madonna? She's been rumoured the past few years.

Would get my vote, Like A Prayer is the GOAT pop song.

Mr Mumford and his backing band "Sons"?

Yeah... her friend was disappointed with a Stormzy so they started discussing it

My thought there is if they could get her, it would be done and signed already. You would think Madonna would be one of the first feelers they put out.

Bob Dylan and Childish Gambino both seem to fit the description (solo, have a gender, unexpected, prob say no) although she reckoned a Macca fan wouldn't like them, so maybe not Dylan

But then we've got two rappers headlining - modern times eh?

Seems a bit early to be panicking into a shock replacement though doesn’t it? I mean Prince pulled out in April and they got The Who. 

If it was Macca pencilled in and he’s pulled the plug, he was surely the ‘safe’ bet out of the headliners. Surely they would be aiming at a safe one to replace him?

Yes but that just kinda proves it - that did seem a very panicky rebooking with havning to cancel a gig and fans revolting etc.

But there’s lots of years headliners are apparently not even booked until the new year? So this should be fairly par for the course. 

Also, without trying to sound too grim, if you line up a headliner a year or so in advance who is in his 70s I reckon you tend to have some sort of backup plan. This is some time ahead of having to announce anything so the idea they were scrambling from the other source or going for weird ones from her seems strange.
