But most years we at least go in to the festival thinking there could be another big Pyramid moment. 

That someone will step up with a set for the ages. 

Not this year. 

All just a bit meh. 

 

Stormzy could easily provide the 'moment' if he gets it right.

Based on the couple of times I've seen him previously, I'll be surprised if the atmosphere in the field is anything but electric.

The only thing potentially stopping it is people turning up and actively wanting to have a shit time. Similar to some of the crowd criticisms I've read on here about Kanye's set.

They sold out 3 nights at Wembley Arena, and as our Canadian friend says, was a fantastic show.

I'm not sure they sold it out, some pals got tickets for one of the shows the very afternoon I was sat there gushing to them about how good the night before had been. Still, the mere fact they warranted 3 nights has got to count for something.

RE: Arcade Fire.

Someone described them as shorting a fuse on EN, with all the political happenings atm it should have been prime for them, but managed to mess it up a little.

Huge fan here, and have faith they'll come back strongly. Loved the '14 set, but agree they might have been a one-off for now.

I didn’t enjoy the 14 set that much, thought it had too much ‘new stuff’ and that it was a bit flat. Went to Wembley last minute on the EN tour as someone pulled out and was not particularly bothered but their set and show blew me away, it was probably the best gig I went to last year

Apols - might not have sold out some of the seats now iirc.

Was brave staging, and we were lucky to see them give it a trial run at the small shows the year before (York hall, Bethnal Green).

Up there with the nest of last year, we still talk about it. And we got Jarvis as the guest, which was a turn-up...

Sorry for being too lazy to go through the thread, but has the Killers rumour got weight behind it, or is it based on bookies odds and guesses?

Personally, I think they are a good choice, due to their popularity and quality of their sets (though somewhat uninspiring, I've seen them around a dozen times)... But they're on that fine line of putting on a set that could be one people talk about in the future (especially with the musicians they could potentially bring out with them), but it could also just be very standard and people say "I got smashed and had fun"

Though I don't think there's any chance of them putting on a bad show.

Neil has had word it's The killers and the cure. Not confirmed though.

That was one of the most toxic crowds I've ever been in. I had people around me just shouting out horrific racial abuse; n-word, c-word, you name it. It was incredibly disheartening and lead to me getting in multiple shouting matches with people around me that almost resulted in full on fights.

Yeah I was there on the Jarvis night, it was amazing seeing the wiry lad grinding away up there. Cherry on top for me.

Went to the Manchester show on the same run as that York Hall show, but they didn't do the boxing ring there, just yer normal festival stage. Was a decent gig but nothing exceptional, reckon that was to do with sight lines being poor, sound not being particularly loud and bit muddy, and the fact that the venue was a dirty ditch I have no affection for.

Surprised by that.  We were about halfway back and the general vibe from most around us was that we were excited to see what Kanye did.  Most people were still up from Pharrell.  Everyone seemed to enjoy the first few tunes, but then there was something of an exodus as he began to struggle.

😡😡😡 It really did bring out the worst in people, nasty undercurrent to a lot of the crowd in the build up, which is why I pushed as far forward as I could and luckily ended up in a spot of the crowd where everybody was there to have a good time and loved it. Sorry to hear you had to experience that.

Arcade Fire are going to be fine, can't imagine them not headlining main stage again at some point in the future. EN was their worst album imo but still had some great tracks, reflektor was a great album but too long, suburbs and funeral are up there with the best albums I've ever heard and neon Bible had some brilliant tracks too (no cars go, intervention, my body is a cage etc). Maybe they're in a slump but I think they are still going to be a huge name for the foreseeable future. Saw them at castlefield bowl 17' and it's best show I have ever seen, long may they continue

It’s unbelievable that at the glastonbury festival that some idiots would rather attend a performance that they so violently hated when there are so many other acts they could have been at. I just don’t understand that. What were they expecting, that he would just do Mumford covers instead of his usual set? Some folk just don’t deserve tickets.  once the whole line up is finalised we will decide where to go well in advance. In all the years I have never been disappointed .

Similar experience.   There were a LOT of people there who were just excited at the idea of seeing him fail so they could be proved right.   So many people complaining that he shouldn't be headlining or they don't know his songs and yet they were still there.  Very, very odd.

I moved around until we found some people who were there for the right reasons.

OMG! I am genuinely shocked by this. Why would you bother going FFS! I hope that doesn't happen with Stormzy :(

That was the same where we were nearer the back, not the toxic atmosphere described by a couple of others. 

We did indeed join the exodus after a bit.

Others on here (maybe even you), have took me to task on this many times before, tried to get me to revise my stance on Castlefield toilet bowl. But I will not be swayed. Still bought a ticket for The National tho, and got a beady little eye on that Janelle show and all.

Interesting, I've always loved CB - all the way back to the days of DPercussion.
