Other Stage

Recommended Posts

I didn't watch anything at the other stage in 2017. Hoping for some better fare in 2019.

As for headliners, who are decent options?

Chemical Brothers (again) 

Other than that, I am struggling.

I'd love for Glastonbury to go for something different. Rammstein maybe. Then again though, after how few people were at Boy Better Know, is "different" a good move?

The Prodigy are a shout I reckon. The Streets have been thrown around a lot. Not sure if that's an Other thing or a JP thing. No idea how big they are.

Someone had info a while back stating The Streets were offered Pyramid sub or Other Header.

My mates would be into the Streets. I'd swerve that. Hope they'd be the same night as McCartney

I'm sure The Streets played Jazz/World in 2009. He headlined JP in 2011 so I do wonder if his absence has really elevated his stature sufficiently for an Other Stage headline. Who knows, but I'd be very surprised if he was anywhere near playing such a significant slot. Other will surely have a big "dance" act, so Prodigy is a good shout I recon. As for the others, not a clue

Ive seen the Prodigy & Chems at Glastonbury before. 

Seen them both a lot, so I'd only be there if nothing else appealed. I'd know it would be good.

Tame Impala I’m counting on them to contrast with somebody other than the Cure, though they wouldn’t clash with the Cure.

It has yes. The Streets sell more tickets now then they ever have done.

Too big. Suspect any festival he does next year will be headlining.

Yeah - but not PM. I imagine he's too expensive and also doesn't need the exposure. 2 nights at the O2 shifted in minutes at £75 a pop. (I had the misfortune of having to buy some for teenagers  .... and then an extra £40 in "service fees").

BBK playing last year was a good idea, but absolutely daft to put them against Ed and his looper.

Just as a point on BBK, I didnt think it was as empty as people made out.

You could get to the barrier just before they come on, but I turned round when they had started and it looked back to the sound desk at least. 

Kano didnt finish at the Park until 15 minutes before they come on so I think everyone got down after that.

But bands for The Other potentially:

The Streets
Pale Waves
Bloc Party (Hopefully Opener)
The Coral
Jamie XX
Tame Impala
You Me At Six
J Hus
Sigrid
Tom Grennan 
Jessie Ware
Gerry Cinnamon 
DMA's
Declan McKenna

Just to name a few.

New White Lies record out in the Feb so expect them mid afternoon at some point.

I’m Skeptical about Tame Impala despite the Beats 1 interview. 

Out of interest, has anyone ever subbed the Pyramid, then headlined the Other before going on to headline the Pyramid in the future?

I think they have a mid afternoon residency there.

They should have White Lies/Editors/Interpol in a row and see if anyone notices when they change over.

I see Orbital have been added as SR today. Dunno if they'd be Other Stage at this point, or elsewhere?

I'd say West Holts more likely.
