Needs something a bit more interesting on Saturday night 

Saturday Park subs cut about halfway into the headliner on any other stage anyway.

Yeah I thought Iggy Pop/Spiritualized, Beach House, Caribou seemed like a pretty good Saturday night.

Lauryn Hill is an interesting option anyways but I'd be at Arctic Monkeys ready to come back on Monday and complain on eFestivals that it was shit.

Spiritualized into Beach House is cool as fuck (put em on the same stage even if he did that last time) but as much as I like Caribou he’d be a bit of a dud to finish the night on 

Lets just sack Caribou and have the mighty Beach House headline

Faithless in 2010?

I dunno....I'm the usually the last person for citing precedent, but Orbital subbed Pulp before their famous headline set.  I genuinely cant see much wrong conceptually with the Chems heading back onto the Pyramid before a headliner and blowing the cobwebs off of the c**t.

Underworld in 1999 is the last time a proper electronic band subbed the Pyramid, with the Chems themselves headlining the thing in 2000.    Although the Chemical Brothers are made for the Other Stage and playing in the dark, I'd be up for them subbing the Pyramid for a change.  As long as we still had an electronica headliner on Other/W Holts at some point over the weekend.

For those who are in the know with the local area, is there any chance that next time the license is up for renewal that we might get some later slots on the Pyramid again?  I miss "the sunset slot".

Yeah those are all fair points. I left Hot Chip that high as they seem to have a good relationship with the festival and I figured that might go in their favour, I originally had Interpol as JP headliners too but shuffled things about. Didn't realise that about Lauryn Hill, I was thinking she might be too big anyway but if she's selling out these at decent prices then yeah I agree with you on that.

Hot Chip subbed Other in 2010 and headlined WH in 2015.  I can't see why they couldn't sub Other again.

I think their last UK appearance was subbing Primal Scream at On Blackheath tho.

Maybe they would. It just stands out to me that they’d be above a bunch of bigger acts but I suppose it’s not always necessarily biggest-to-smallest.

Have you seen Caribou live mate? They’d be pretty legit as a Park headliner to bridge your day watching bands into your night huffing glue.

Maybe their stock has fallen a bit and I didn't realise.  Seems a low placing - maybe because they'd already toured the hell out of their last album?

Either way, I'll be there if they play - they're amazing live.  I can't imagine there would be any clashes that would keep me away.

That doesn't appear to be so much boring but a sketch where Steven Toast fronts a rock and roll band.

I was wondering why I enjoyed it so much.

Unless the music climate changes dramatically I can't see them not having one electronic headline on Other/WH.

The campaign to get Bicep to sub level for a sunset Pyramid slot starts here.

Phwoar, I'd love a bit of that.  The Pyramid does have the best sound system after all.

Although realistically Chems, Disclosure and maybe Jamie xx all seem more likely.

Jamie xx does have form for that sort of thing. Did a big early evening set at Flozza's Hyde Park gig and I think he was on about 7pm at the Park a few Glastos back as well. Weather permitting, his music is pretty good for when the sun's up - definitely more so than Chems, but if one of those was more likely to be given a Pyramid sub slot it's the Brothers.

After watching The xx play Loud Places last year as the sun went down, I really wouldn’t mind a bit of that again. Beautiful stuff.
