2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

I know the mood is still possibly otherwise but I reckon this kills the chances of Strokes headlining G.

I dunno. Just seems a bit odd.

Strong line up on the day at APE tho (if you're into that sorta stuff, I guess... Viagra Boys anyone?)

there's been some geezer post to say he's heard they're headlining, but other than that it's just been Gucci hyping them up.

And there's been others post that they've heard Madge is headlining, and AMs, and I think others too.

Don't forget.....

I think it’s a long shot for Glasto but there are rumours of Madge doing a world wide tour later this year and she’s currently recording new music apparently. 

the Madge rumours originate from June 2018. She's since been ruled out by Emily.

While it's not impossible that Madge has been recruited since Emily ruled her out, it's far more likely that any Madge stuff going around is repeats from that story from June.

Be reasonable here Neil. The Strokes have a headline rumour and a radio DJ mentioning them playing a couple of times.

one geezer has said he's heard they're headlining, same as one geezer has said for others.

The mentions on the radio didn't say anything about headlining, and I reckon that would have been included if they were.

Sure it’s probably been mentioned but Radio 1 have a competition tomoz for 2 tickets.  Do we think some sort of announcement will come with it?

no

Gonna have to sacrifice someone to get a Headliner announcement. It's a sign.

Sure, if Emily ruled The Strokes out it’d be fair enough, not playing.

And we went over with The Cure that people outside of music forums talk about acts playing and headlining festivals interchangeably without zeroing in on the difference. It’s a bit strange to think that “so and so is playing this festival” always means ‘not headlining’.

They might be playing.

But if they were headlining I'd have expected that to have been part of what Grim Nickshaw heard, and then he'd have likely repeated it in at least one of the times he mentioned them.

I might be wrong, but that's my take on it. They're not really a headliner-sized band for Glastonbury after all.

This is exactly what I’m saying though. We’ve heard about them headlining, and if it was any other act ‘playing’ would mean ‘headlining’, but the preconceived notion that they wouldn’t headline apparently overrides this info completely.

I think the fact that he mentioned them playing makes it less likely that they are headlining rather than more likely. The headliners are going to be a big announcement not Nick Grimshaw casually dropping it during his show. They could be sub-headliners maybe even Other stage headliners but I just don't see a Radio 1 DJ being allowed to make an off the cuff remark about a Pyramid headliner.

Radio DJs often make off the cuff remarks about people playing and headlining festivals. It’s not an official announcement channel so they can speculate like the rest of us

So APE is 40k capacity and 6 stages. Seems a bit of a stretch that a band that would headline that would headline Glastonbury as well. 

Stormzy would never sell 40K tickets and he's headlining

Yes but I think if it's a big act they'd probably check it out and if there was a chance it was a headliner would probably not mention it or at least mention it being a rumour rather than saying I hear they are playing particularly a BBC DJ as they know they get the exclusives from the Eavii when the announcements are being made.

can't make any sense of that.

Playing doesn't mean headlining for other acts. Playing doesn't necessarily mean headlining for this act.

They don't get any special info (until perhaps shortly before an announcement) but they'd be nothing to stop them gossiping.

Nick was gossiping. The gossip he had clearly didn't include 'headliner' else he'd have passed that gossip on too.

The Strokes seems like a much better prospect if the pyramid stage was just that APE line-up that day. Wouldn't have to bother with any of that wandering round I'm usually subjected to, see how the other half live (until headliner time when I wander off to Wu)

He definitely would, although he hasn't done a huge tour in the UK there is such a high demand for him, could easily sell 2 nights at the O2, especially off the back of a new album.

Surely it's a bit of a non argument (for what it's worth I think he would)

for a one-off show? He'd whip The Stroke's arse, big time.
