2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

You can rule Foals out well and truly. Looks nailed they are headlining Truck, and I don't think Glastonbury would want to share a headliner this year with Truck festival.

Can't see Lorde popping up. She's been pretty open about spending time back home and living her life for a bit. 

Don't get me wrong, I'd REALLY love it. I missed her set as it was sandwiched between Radiohead and The xx but I just can't see it. 

Me neither. If she was UK based then sure, but it’s hard to imagine she’d come all this way for a one-off non-headline slot. *waits for someone who knows what they’re talking about to tell me she lives in Somerset or something*

Don't think anyone thought they were even close to headlining Glastonbury...?

Exactly. She's back in New Zealand and this is what she posted a month or two back... Sounds pretty definitive!

Hello my dear email friends,

As you know, I don’t really have social media anymore, but I wanted to share some pictures and thoughts from the end of tour with you.

Eyeris counted up 116 performances this tour. That includes shows, festivals, radio thingies, TV performances... holy shit I have no idea how we did all those bloody performances! And now it’s the end, and I’m caught in an overwhelming mix of relief, gratitude, mourning, elation, and exhaustion. As I sit at home at my kitchen table with the dog under my feet and the doors wide open, I’m thankful to be back where I feel most like myself, but also a little spooked to think it will be a while before we see each again, formally. I had gotten used to meeting you all over the world, all those countries, faces, voices. Every show was different in its beauty, every jet-lagged night as freshly excruciating as the first time... Tour is no joke, it takes so much from you, but is the absolute brightest time. I’ve never felt richer than in those moments with you, all of us heaving to Green Light, or singing Writer together, or Supercut. The way you took this record and made it yours will be a highlight of my life forever.

So really, this little note is just to say thankyou. Thankyou for continuing to change my life, year after year; for living inside the work that I make; for always being ready for what’s round the corner.

I haven’t started properly on the next record yet, and I’m not sure how long it’ll be. But I’ve been teaching myself how to play piano, and here and there little bits come out. I think this next one will probably be born around the piano in my house, me and my friends, keeping it simple. But we’ll see.

I love you so much. Thankyou, thankyou, thankyou. I’ll try drop in from time to time here with a photo or something, let you know that I’m okay. But know that for now I’m happy here at home, living quietly and simply, eating toast, going for walks, swimming. And you’ll hear all about it soon enough.

OH and also, I’m going to try make a couple of t-shirts or sweaters, to celebrate the end. You know how useless I am, but keep your eyes peeled for those.

Ok. That’s all for now. I really love you.

E xxxxx

Are they an especially big headliner for Truck or have they really just fallen off that much in the past few years? 

Edit: oops that was meant for @Stuielooie

Big for Truck surely. I think Truck will be a festival close to their home turf tho, no? Probly why they're doing it.

What are you talking about?

It has to be Heidi/Keisha/Mutya, that is 'classic' Sugababes, although anyone who says 'original' get's a nod of respect.

Heidi/Keisha/Mutya was the vintage period though ;)

I thought Heidi was Scandinavian for years. I was shocked, shocked I say when I found out she was a Scouser.

Foals at a truck festival sounds like something that would happen in Texas

No no no.

They wouldn't be able to headline that either.

Lorde would fucking own 

I missed her slot last year for Paak, but let's be real: on the telly it looked like a tour de force.

Yyyyyyep. This would make me and my (Glato newbie and massive Lorde-fan) brother very, very happy people!

Is it just me or (efests) have things got more exciting, rumour-wise with suggestions of Lorde/Mac/Robyn/Gaga(dream coming back alive) etc.?

This place isn't good for the soul.

There was talk of Snow Patrol a few pages back too, and it’s pretty clear that’s not happening either.

The more I think about Lorde being part of the info I got the more it seems like the person chucked her name out when asked to elaborate on the three subs being female. Sort of thing someone not obsessed with every single act’s touring plans like we are on here would think was feasible enough for the slot. And then obvs that throws doubt on the whole thing.

Yeah when a lot of people have hope again it's always a good thing however it's the hope that kills you! Although Macca no longer being in the frame is gutting for me it's good to speculate again. Better than all the shite trolling and fake account stuff that seems to have dominated this year. 

I miss the stone roses guy who "posted" his betting slip, that was peak Efests 

 

*oh and when the Foos played the cheese and grain and parsonjack got in. What a day. I got no work done at all.

Have they been relevant since their 2000 bottling?

My brother was part of that crowd (but didn't partake in the piss throwing) and is attending his first GF this year. He's been to various festivals since then, and I've watched him DJ events over the years, but as his younger bro, I'm massively excited to see his reaction to seeing THE greatest festival on earth...

Just been having a blast of Sugababes back catalogue though. Fok. Whoever knocked about with their production knew their shit.

Get them in.

Right, I realise I’ve never had any info before (other than Eoin Loveless telling me last year that Drenge hadn’t been booked at that point but were hoping for the call after they announced their new album and shit like that), but one of my mates piped up in the group chat the other day and is now happy for me to spill the beans. His words:

”So my new flatmate has a friend who books bands/ is an owner of a music company. She said she knew Paul McCartney pulled out months ago as he said he’d booked an US date, and they’d had fleetwood Mac at arms length.

And like a significant company, she also knows the people who manage 1975 and pale waves and organised their recent tour

So it’s not like “my mate owns a music company” but it’s in an office in slough

Apparently it’s all female subs on the pyramid, with Liam headlining other on Friday“

Then he came back later after talking to her again:

”Source is the booking agent of the 1975, who are not playing this year, playing 2020”

(I don’t think he knew the 1975 were ruled out by other gigs anyway)

Next message:

“And that large bets have been placed by music heads on fleetwood, which is why odds are low”

And then finally he came back again today to say Foals will play a secret set (seems pretty likely) and that Lorde is one of the Pyramid subs. We pointed out Lorde isn’t touring and has no new music since she subbed Other, so he went back and they said she’s doing it as a one-off.

I realise this is all very Chinese whispers, and the Lorde info seems duff and casts even more doubt (if it was needed) on the rest of it, but just thought I’d share, what with that other industry guy mentioning them at the Fat Whites gig too from a few pages back.

I’ve asked if she has any info for things that haven’t been announced yet but will be soon so we can verify, but nothing forthcoming as yet.

Seems like everything that has been rumoured here plus one or two bits that seem highly unlikely makes me sceptical, but will ignore that as I'm happy with Mac.

If the all female subs thing is true then it’s thrown a massive spanner’s in the works for what everybody on here has been expecting, but tbh considering the original ‘Stormzy is headlining’ info came with ‘Liam is subbing’ I’m inclined to not believe it, which then leads me to think the lot of it might be bollocks.

Can’t say I’d be too shocked if Fleetwood end up being our mystery headliner though. I imagine some money would’ve been chucked their way to stop the top tier of 2019 looking particularly weak.
