Just checked on Spotify and I'm shocked that Elephant isn't their biggest song.

It definitely was for a while, but then Currents came along and they got a lot bigger.

So am I right in thinking...

Fri: Tame Impala

Sat: The Streets?

Sun: Chemical Brothers

Last two are more or less interchangeable. I remember someone, maybe a couple of people on here saying they’ve been told The Streets were opposite Paul McCartney, but I don’t know what day they were told Macca would be... and in reality they were probably being told by someone guessing based on the rumours.

Chem Bros have done the last two Sunday's in 2007 & 2015, plus if they are in Cornwall Friday night, why would they hang around for an extra day - rest maybe? Would think the bookers would change it up and slot them on Saturday.

Both times they were up against a legacy act in The Who, so maybe Chem Bros vs (supposed to be) Macca on the Saturday night makes sense.

Is there anything in saying whoever is up against Stormzy on Friday on the Other stage will possibly be more of a heritage act than perhaps Tame Impala?

Just thinking in terms of catering for the varied audience at the festival surely something not as contemporary might be in that slot?

Perhaps i'm talking shite mind.

Could be Orbital in West Holts? Or do we have someone for that slot?

Awesome news. 

They were very high on my wishlist so I'm made up with that. Hopefully we get some new music soon :D

Aren’t The Cure a legacy act? Chems must have done Saturday in 2011, so they arguably did change it up. Seems 50-50 to me.

You could argue that, but CB’s Friday night date means it’s not them there, and Tame Impala are much more obvious to go against Stormzy than any of the other Pyramid headliners, while The Streets are more likely to avoid the clash with Stormzy with Stormzy than any other Pyramid headliner.

If they were to play WH, it seems it’d be Friday night yeah. Could easily see someone like Doves or Cocker or Ashcroft on another stage too - maybe Sheryl Crow on the Acoustic.

I'd say that Hot Chip are currently the best guess for that slot.

I'm holding out hope for Orbital Friday WH and Hot Chip playing before The Chems...

you might be lucky. It's quite possible HC aren't on West Holts.

My guess and hope is The Streets Sunday.  

My thinking Stormzy is Friday and Wu Tang clan on Saturday so in my head it makes more sense them being Sunday..... I’m probably talking rubbish though

When u had the killers info yesterday you were chasing a few other things, anything relating to the other stage headers?

I think -

Tame Impala

Chemical Brothers

Foals

Streets subbing big Stormz on the main stage, hopefully get enough time to dash to Tame Impala after their set!

I've got to say, the undercard is shaping up pretty nicely for me already.  So far I've got the following on the rumours list I either really want to see, or I'd be more than happy to wander along to:

  • Hot Chip
  • Chemical Brothers
  • Orbital
  • The Streets
  • IDLES
  • Vampire Weekend
  • Kylie

But mainly those top three would ordinarily each be must see acts for me.  Not bad considering I suspect there's an extra band or two to be announced/leaked.  And I might even go and see The Cure.

Think the streets will be wasted there tbh.  But, it would ensue that I see them I guess

Can't deal with a clash between Streets and Wu Tang so here's hoping Streets take Friday or Sun.

This would suit me to the ground for Other Stage. But potential Killers Saturday clash would cause me a major headache.

I'm really hoping they move away from the sound of Currents. Gave it a whirl last night after the news of them topping Other and it still doesn't really do it for me after all this time. A few standout tracks, but as you say, very samey. Doubt they're gonna go back to the psychey feel of their first two albums but I'd be interested in them moving in a totally different direction.

I’m eager to see what route they go down. I personally think each album sounds different to the next when comparing the three of them (with innerspeaker and lonerism sounding more alike next to one another than currents does). 

But with the progression I’m hoping that they take things in a new direction completely and surprise everyone. I remember waiting for them to drop Let It Happen the evening it come out a few years back being the first single off the album and being puzzled as to whether I liked it or not - which a lot of Currents went down like for me initially. But after digesting it for a while I appreciate Currents as much as I do their two precious bodies of work, and probably rate it as my favourite of the three when it comes to access, live performance and enjoy-ability.

I’ve seen them many a time but I caught them at citadel last summer and it was the best time I’ve watched them live easily. The light show and visuals on the big screen as the sun set and night crept up on us was unbelievable. New Person, Same Old Mistakes to finish the performance with the confetti cannon they have was magical - heart is set on them being there in June now so I’ll be really disheartened if it’s dud news that Neil has had that they’re there!

My only concern for the new album is that they don’t go all out pop. They’re getting a lot bigger across the globe now and they do have their own sounds - featuring in Travis Scott’s latest piece of work - so everything they do still sounds like them, just with a twist of the artist they’re featuring with. Just for the quality of their work, although subjective I know, I just really hope they don’t go too pop and have pop artists all over their work in aim to reach the top 10 status. I don’t mean to sound like a miserable old git, but Kevin Parker probably has a chance with the next singles and album to transition into fully fledged house hold names if he wants to make the crossover, as I don’t think their previous works have the mass, mainstream appeal. 

What do I know though.

Bring on Tame Impala ft. Ariana Grande

Two Door Cinema Club are 'SR' for the Other Stage now. They're headlining some festivals this year, would that be a top slot?

😮

Well I’d guess as Neil has added them there’s new info! Ha.

Presumably subbing or headlining it @eFestivals
