2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

Id rather see Queens of the Stone Age be given a chance than Tame impala or Foals. Tame Impala are very boring live, when i saw them at the pyramid the other year It was a bit of a Snoozefest ( there not much better studio either)

If they're operating a train with wheels, then it can't a be a huge surprise when they fall off

Pah! You don't even know what a train is!

Isn't all this 'bump up' talk a tad premature? It's 18th January!

Most of my bump ups end prematurely.

Huh. I thought Tame Impala were loads of fun when I saw them live. Can't imagine anyone thinking their show was showing. I didn't see them at Glastonbury though so maybe it was a bad performance? At NOS it was party central when they played.

it might be worth noting that I'm not a massive fan, my friends are so I went to check them out. They are a little "soft" I kind of like rock to be a little more riff driven. I can't imagine they would be a good headline show thats all.

They were incredible at Alexandra Palace when I saw them, but I am a massive fan so there's that.

They were absolutely brilliant on the Pyramid in 2016! Can understand they might not be to everyone’s taste, but boring they are not.

Same here. Saw them at Alexandra palace and Glastonbury, both times crowd around me were really going for it. I’d be well up for them headlining a stage. The show definitely worked better under darkness rather than daylight, Alexandra palace had an amazing light show.

Surely EVERYONE knows The Strokes' first album?

everyone that was in uni and attending indie discos from 2002-2007, yeah.

outside of that, most people wouldn't have a clue. that list of songs a few pages back is pretty funny, I'd say most Glasto goers know Last Nite and maybe 3 more to hear.

to most people, even ones with an active interest in "non-chart" music, The Strokes are washed-up relics that most would be surprised are still actually together, let alone making (largely ignored) music.

Even if you have an interest in "non-chart" music they also aren't everyones cup of tea. The Strokes were always a little shit imo, I like rock a little more hard hitting.

Out of all the options, I'd bump up the Chems to headliner. They'd put on a better show than anyone mentioned (aside from Gaga, but I just don't see that happening at all). 

If you're going to end up with three "smaller" headliners than normal, may as well pick the one that would blow away the field. 

I just had a dream (staying home today due to being ill) that the Chems headlined and it was really boring. That’s all the evidence you should need that it’s not them.

Has Madonna been totally ruled out for some definite reason because if she's about to tour she would be someone of the right kind of stature and would help with gender balance etc.

Dancing in the 30 degree sun with all the confetti cannons going off is one of my favourite gig memories of all time. I wouldn't even say i'm a huge fan of the band (certainly a fan, though) but it was a hell of a moment.

Yes she has been ruled out. Emily said it.

Much belatedly arriving to the party, the news Macca will be stateside makes me regret even more not being able to source a ticket in December at short notice. BST must be a long shot now too.

Same, feel like I'm destined never to see him

They have been known to be economical with the truth before. *keeps fingers crossed for Madge*

Stormzy - Cure - AM has to be the most bloke-y lineup of anything ever to exist ever

I give you Reading 2009 - Kings of Leon, Arctic Monkeys, Radiohead (with Kaiser Chiefs, Prodigy and Bloc Party supporting)

re: Tame Impala, I've seen them 3 times live now and I've never not been bored to tears, despite being told many many times that they're amazing.
