So you're saying that Fish from Marillion is still in with a shout?

He played the cropredy folk festival last year and was truly awful. 

Maybe should have done a  Beatles/McCartney cover,   Twist and trout or mullet of kintyre. 

And finished with the national anthem, Cod save our gracious Bream.

I dunno whether to be happy or sad with this thread because loads of bands I like are getting fully ruled out except Iggy. 

If its Iggy then thatll do me. Festival made.

Could Weezer fit the bill for this slot? and /or Pixies?

Can only play Sunday so it's either sub/3rd down if they'd accept it on Other or JP headliner....reckon they would want more than that though considering what they charge now and Glasto doesn't pay a lot. It's fairly rare for them here and they have pricey me personally out now.

Always wanted Faith No More, not that they’re touring at the moment.

Sigh, I'm gonna be disappointed whoever plays now that faith no more have been mentioned!

I think they need a Saturday night Math Rock slot.

That'll cause a division of opinion on her.

I can't tell if you were intentionally being clever here with your maths reference or if it was entirely by accident, but have a Like anyway.

Yep. Someone like Rolo Tomassi would be great. They're touring in July, too...

Now we're talking.

Tbh, with the 'rock slot', get Mastodon there. I think they've developed some mainstream credibility and they'd blow the blanket brigade away. Make it happen for next year.

I think Alice In Chains have some UK dates in May (including Braehead Arena of all places), so if it's them then maybe they've waited until the full lineup to sell more tickets for that.

Donde esta?

My thoughts exactly as I scrolled through the poster looking for the WTF bookings. Must be someone playing elsewhere as an exclusive? Or an act who are delaying announcing their summer plans?

Maybe the metal band pulling out was the traumatic event that EE mentioned in the Rob Da Bank podcast

Gojira are free on the Friday and playing in the UK Saturday and Sunday.  Napalm Death slot? (was that Friday?), or better yet a secret Thursday Greenpeace stage slot :)
