2019 Headliners

Recommended Posts

I think the amount of complaining from people who went to the festival this year about the headliners is just crazy.

Considering them and Kylie were pretty much all that was confirmed when the deposits were paid off.

So according to the Guardian, Killers were third choice behind two heritage acts....

I assume one was Fleetwood Mac - who was the other? Neil Young? Elton? Eagles? Strokes?(!)

So: 3 for 3 then. Might have looked dicey on paper but an absolute romp for the Eavises.

Look at 2015: you can have a stellar set on paper, looking unassailable a month out, but they all variously go through the motions, fluff their lines or break their legs.

Or this year: you have three admittedly from the reserve bench, but who all look thrilled to be there and play career-best sets.

I know which I’d rather 😅

Yup. Helped it be a vintage year in comparison to, say, 2017.

Hold on, am I reading this wrong or are you acknowledging that the Killers did something good?!

Wasn't there to see for myself but the people who went seemed to enjoy it. If it leads to a resurgence of their peers getting the headliner call for 2020 I'll be less chuffed.
