Haha no chance. Many like Foals and were open to hearing a good tune last night. The likes of Kasabian, Kings of Leon, Two Door Cinema Club, The Killers and Biffy Clyro all well below Foals here. 

But yes, bring on that Other headline set. 

Thats what im holding out for.... Other stage headline slot would be perfect fit at this moment in time I think.

Them and Vampire Weekend :D

More chat from Yannis about Glastonbury at around 07:40 here.

So hard to know how to take that... "Glasto is the one" "dont know if it will be this year or next year" is he trying to get Emily's attention? Have they already been booked for this year? or next year?

Sounds like they haven’t been asked and the hole within the schedule is in case they are asked...

Probably don't fancy their luck in the resale after failing in October.

Irony is it'd probably be easier to scoop up a ticket if they were announced to headline.

Exactly how I felt listening to it. Not booked. Hoped to be but if not we’ll do next year please Emily.

I was, hilariously I might add, insinuating they were saying all of this so they'd be booked to play Glastonbury Festival as they hadn't managed to get tickets to attend in October.

I absolutely loved their first two albums but the subsequent ones haven’t really moved me as much even if they do contain some decent songs.    If they’re playing I’ll go see them.  In 2016 they were very good indeed on the Pyramid but I was extremely well oiled at the time and this may have affected my judgement.

Fair play, I must have mis-read the general opinon of Foals on here.

Been a huge fan since the first album myself, and seen them many times (including in a pub in Doncaster!). 

That said, I was a little disappointed by What Went Down. Felt the best three songs had all been released before the album came out itself (What Went Down, Mountain At My Gates, A Knife In The Ocean) and the rest of the tracks didn't live up that level (never a huge fan of Snake Oil).

Lol I was saying the other night that I was annoyed I missed them when they played a pub in Doncaster.

The new song is fine but it could fit seamlessly into the last album. It’s more of the same really which is slightly disappointing but not very surprising. After Holy Fire it really seemed like they were on the cusp of being really huge but it feels to me like they’ve been simmering just below where they should be ever since.

When they said they were releasing 2 albums in one year I was a bit worried. When was the last time a band released 2 really good new albums in one year? They’ve struggled to follow up Holy Fire with something as good (never mind better) and yet somehow they now have enough material for 2 albums in the same year both of which are good enough to put out? Sounds suspicious to me. If they want to get massive again they need to release one solid album with a banger or two that’ll get some radio play.

King Gizzard managed 5 in 2017 that were all genuine worthwhile efforts. Ty Segall managed something similar last year (although, to be fair, only 3 of them were good).

I agree with your point though, this seems more like a double album they've decided to split the release of and good double albums are very rare.

Got my tickets for Birmingham, can’t wait. Its a venue I’ve never been to before as well which is a bonus.
