2020 headliners

Neil Young
Macca
Elton John
Fleetwood Mac
Taylor Swift
The Foals
The 1975
Blur
Coldplay

These are the names that continuously keep getting floated. 

I'd personally take anyone from the top 5 of those, but it's lovely to see how unknown the whole thing is. The last time I went, Radiohead were confirmed on the 20th Oct 2016... Which means we could have one of these names in ink in three weeks! How exciting!

Springsteen?! I fucking love Bruce but if he’s gonna flub it as badly as in 09 it’ll be a waste of everyone’s time.

Aye. I really enjoyed it as I was a fan, but 3 hours for a headline set is too long, and no Born In The USA? GTFO.

It was a poor set list alright. I mean, he’s got a headlining set for the ages in him if he wants to but there’s no guarantee he does.

He has said he will be recording a new e-street album in new year so supposedly touring. If that is the case he will play a set  based on that. Did not see him in 09 at Glastonbury but did the next day in Hyde Park, the Working on a dream album was unfortunately one of his weakest so live show not his best. Saw him at IoW however and that show based around Wrecking Ball was excellent. So if he does which I think unlikely it will depend on the album quality. 

Big fan as you can see and would love to see him at Glastonbury but I think that boat has passed.

Just been at an acoustic night at Pilton Working mans club. One of the acts does a cover of stairway to heaven.

i go over to Michael Eavis and say: so will we hear stairway to heaven on the farm in June?

micheal giggles

micheal: did he play stairway to heaven?

me: yes

micheal : really?

me : yes it was his second song ( me thinking, I know he murdered it but even I could recognise the track)

micheal: oh I didn’t recognise it, really? So how are you?

 

take from that what you will......

Are you trying to troll or are you being serious?

I’m being serious.

Im absolutely amazed anyone serious thinks that out of all the artists queuing up to headline Glastonbury 2020 that anyone thinks Taylor Swift will be one of the 3 that gets chosen.

if I’m wrong fair enough and I’ll be the first person to alllow the piss to be taken out of me. But I’m really surprised it’s a serious rumour.

No way that Billie Eilish is successful enough to headline. Dumpy's Rusty Nuts on the other hand have a new single that's a huge return to form and they deserve a shot at it.

Yeah, but it's no 'Boxhill or Bust'

If Tay doesn't play Glastonbury next year, it'll be because she chose not to, not because the festival didn't choose her.

Glasto HQ would kill to have Taylor Swift headline. She's one of the most successful singer songwriters of the millennium.

Disagree. Massively.

like I say, I’d she ends up headlining I’ll still be on those forums and I’ll be more than happy to admit I was wrong.

For me she’s not Glastonbury headliner material.

she may well be successful but I think she’d get a lukewarm reception at Glastonbury to be honest.

I 100% back you on this, totally agree. Either it’s some weird form of groupthink in this forum or I’m out of touch with music. I just don’t think she’s a credible enough artist to headline Glastonbury, especially for the 50th anniversary.

Why would you post this. It's clearly wrong and it's not even funny bait. Try harder!

She would be no different to Jay Z or Metallica or Kanye 

massive booking.

personally, I’d pass but she ticks all the boxes
