More people still went to see Craig David.

A good chunk of people just go to the Pyramid though. Would the killers have got a massive crowd there? Id say so. Im definitely not a killers fan either.

Yes it would. It'll be another lock out.

Well yes but have you seen the size of the JP tent, almost any sub sized band doing a JP set would cause that to happen

If they headline this year I don't think it'll be as busy as Craig David's Gargantuan Crowd.

How much of that was for him or for Corbyn? All my mates were there for Corbyn just afterwards.

Probs not but it’s tough to compare any sort of universally known act playing at 4pm to those headlining the joint.

Ideal compromise would be for The Killers to play The Craig David's Gargantuan Crowd slot and a band not fronted by a child's drawing of Count Dracula to headline.

Why would you attend a set you don't like just to hear a politician babble on after for 10 minutes?

I don't think it's a case of people not liking CD but Jeremy was definitely an extra incentive to be at the pyramid at that time.

Everybody seemed to be saying Libertines on the day, but I didn't trust it until I checked on here. I suppose if you don't know what's a trustworthy source, you're not going to fully buy even the most rampant rumour. The Killers seemed to be a different matter though, didn't the King Gizz chaps even make an obvious reference towards the end of their set? Everybody knew it was The Killers.

It was well known on the day, but from checking the SecretGlasto DMs, we didn't know for sure at noon on the Saturday, although did by 19:09 that evening. I'm sure there were lots of signs in hindsight, but at the time, it wasn't obviously them for most of the festival.

Edit: checking back, the info did actually start to solidify around noon, with a credible tip coming in at 10:30. But the point stands, before the Saturday The Killers wasn't well known. I spoke to a steward at JPT itself  (can't remember the day) who seemed very excited at the prospect when I told her. It was clearly news to her.

A lot of people moved out after CD....the field was much more sparse. Personally not arsed by Corbyn.

I'm surprised there was so little made of that video of him assaulting his girlfriend last year though considering the current era we're in (NME didn't even report it and they print nearly everything he does).

Got to admit, that had completely passed me by until now.

Really? I remember quite a lot about it. There was an initial thing about the incident, then both LG and his girlfriend refuted it and threatened to sue whichever paper, and then sources close to Noel said that Oasis are definitely never reuniting because of Noel’s disgust...

Admittedly, Google thinks I’m absolutely barmy about the Gallaghers and ships me every news story about them, but I thought it was pretty big news.

@addicted2noise I think the furore was nipped in the bud by his gf saying it wasn’t true. Video looked pretty damning but don’t know what else can be gleaned from it when they’ve both said it’s not the case. Don’t think it’d have sunk a Glasto slot though, going by Emily’s comments about Johnny Depp.’s booking.

Most bands wouldn't really feel like they'd need to debase themselves in such fashion. But then most bands aren't fronted by a claymation version of Alvin Stardust.

Couldn't you say the same about Blossoms? Their crowd was pretty damn big - you can't always read into crowd sizes.

Rag and Bone also had an inexplicably large crowd last time around. 

Lots of people just like shit music.

he was playing at 3 in the afternoon against, essentially, a load of nobodies. a few mainstream radio hits, and against acts that most people have never heard of during the day means massive crowds.

put Rag and Bone Man or Craig David on at 10pm and they obviously wouldn't have had even half the crowds they did. CD played in Sonic the previous year...

even Liam Gallagher's crowd size had a lot to do with being on before "prime time".
