Genuinely no ideal what the deal is with that voodoo skellington c**t. Has he got a lace doilly on his shoulder?

I believe it's a disco ball he's cut open rather than a doilly. Not sure if that helps.

What the actual fuck has happened to this thread / slot?

Limp Bizkit? Fuck off.

Limp Bizkit are all sorts of fun live. Gets a thumbs up from me. I reckon they'd draw a huge crowd as well. A LOT of people in their mid 20s to early 30s were swept up by the whole nu metal genre and I reckon a lot of people who don't normally go to metal shows/festivals would jump at the chance to see them.

The real answers if they want a 'metal slot' are Mastodon, Gojira, Lamb of God etc., but it's never going to happen unless they make an effort to book much more metal throughout the lineup. If they want a novelty metal slot, which this intends to be, they need acts that are recognisable but can't be too big, so LB are a perfect choice.

 

Slipknot! 🤘🏻

The slot’s probably not actually happening, if that is any comfort. And I don’t think Limp Bizkit would be chosen for it anyroad. Bizkit at Glastonbury would be excellent though, as I’ve said for a long time. Seems that a lot of people spend their whole weekends navigating around shit that they don’t actually listen to for novelty value, don’t see why Limp Bizkit should be any more upsetting a booking than Sheryl Crow.

Why would Em actively mention their being a slot, to then not actually book a relevant act for the slot?

That is comforting, Dental; thank you.

I think comparing Durst & Crow as bookings is very unfair on Crow though.

Get Limp Bizkit on the big pointy stage: they were so fun at Reading 2015. Would far rather see them get a slot on there than Bastille or Years and Years.

Because it appears that there aren’t any! Pyramid looks busy on Friday already without a random hard rock act, for some reason kept off the poster, thrown in there.

She also mentioned a legendary American singer-songwriter slot on Saturday afternoon didn’t she? Guess that could extend to Janet...

Eh, not really. It’s a booking that seems to mean something to a very limited age bracket, and a god damn sideways looking dog who keeps telling me she’s a much bigger deal than I think she is.

Maybe it's moved to Saturday to accommodate someone who couldn't do the Friday?

Agree. At least it wouldn't be a snooze fest

It's entirely possible that Emily says something because that's what she thought at the time - then an act falls through or pulls out and everything gets reshuffled.

If you make sure you're connected 

The writing's on the wall

Genuinely thought this was a photoshopped picture with Tim Westwood. Imagine my surprise when I saw the next page and doilly man is an actual thing.

Still very much think the third down rock act is a goer despite us not being able to figure out who it is. Would be odd that in the first year of Emily acknowledging that the slot is an actual thing that they don’t book an act for it. Lauryn Hill fourth and Bastille fifth seems just right to me.

Limp Bizkit are playing Finland on Friday so you might be right here.

Stand by this from 3 months back

That'd be a clash and a half with IDLES if The Park 6pm info is correct.

 It'd be one of those clashes thats not really a clash though. You'd see Ig, cos he's seventy something and not Idles who will currently turn up to the opening of an envelope.

Plus he doesnt sound like the Cockney Rejects doing the greatest hits of Oi!

I still think IDLES would get a huge crowd - there is an incredible amount of hype around them and their recent tour was superb. 

Iggy would (probably) be a one time opportunity for him to be seen and o imagine there is a fair crossover between fans of both.

Where did this Limp Bizkit idea come from? That would be pretty mad if it was Saturday. LB > LG > Chemical Brothers.
