There's plenty of reason to take exception with The Rolling Stones for their tax evasion/Under My Thumb/Stray Cat Blues, Metallica for their bear hunting, The Who for the child porn on Pete Townshend'

For my own entertainment (I am an extremely sad man) I decided to have a look at the festival headliners over the past few years and see if any trends/ patterns emerge with the type of acts booked….ev

I always see that people consider their headline sets underwhelming but I watch them fairly regularly on YouTube and they seem far from it to me. Especially the first one in '07 - out of all the Glasto sets I've seen on TV/online over the years I'd put that as one of the ones I most wish I was at.

Next time I think I’ll just watch it on YouTube.

Hi, 

Please could you complete the following survey if you have attended or will be attending a music festival this summer. It is for my dissertation, and I would really appreciate your help!

Thank you!

I think you'll do much better creating a dedicated thread for this.  This forum normally gets quite a few responses, but you may struggle this year with Glasto being off. 

Good luck with your studies!

Done. Thanks for sticking me with the 18 year olds, a lot surveys put 25 year olds with the 30s, I'm not an old man yet.

Completed, but one thing to note - there are lots of people aged over 45 and having a single 45+ option is introducing a bias into the results.  I know I've closed down festival questionnaires in the past if I find that I'm in the bucket "30 odd until death" category.  Especially when there are options that only cover 7 years.

Would Glastonbury be interested in Kings of Leon anymore? Unless the R+L show is just a one off I'm guessing they'e going to have a new album out by Glasto 2019, wouldn't be a popular choice on here but still a headliner sized act I'd say.

My early prediction would be Arctic Monkeys, Kings of Leon and either Madonna or Fleetwood Mac

Unless they start gambling a bit more on headliners, they’ve probably no option but to hit up the stock festival headline options (Kings of Leon being chief among these) for another crack of the whip.

Or maybe inviting old legacy acts back. I suppose most of those would be okay.
