Is anyone going to this thing on Sunday? We need someone to just ask point blank "Is Taylor Swift playing the Miley slot from last year".

I don't get it what does that mean?

If she's not headlining Glastonbury, there's always NOS Alive.

They’ve done me dirty with this Diana announcement. I’m pissing off all my mates a lot earlier than I should be only talking about Glastonbury.

I’m also now completely spoilt and feel entitled to another announcement imminently.

Didn’t in some video Michael say Neil Young is playing? If so. I can see him playing before Rolling Stones. He’s happy to play before Dylan. Michael doing his own Desert Trip fest (which I attended and it was ace)

Riiight I get you. So they're disliked basically because they make catchy music, but people are wetting themselves over the potential of Taylor Swift?

Tay Tay hasn’t stoopped to the levels of You’re In Love With A Psycho. I actually quite like some of their stuff, but they’ve knocked out some absolute (and in that case, offensive) drivel.

Headlining Leeds/reading is nowhere near like headlining the pyramid and come on the Leeds/reading line ups are pretty poor these days. I just don’t think they’re ready sorry bro 

Reading/Leeds has been headlined by Foos, Muse, Kasabian, AM, Radiohead, KoL, Mumford, etc. in recent years. As well as RHCP, Eminem, etc. So totally like headlining the Pyramid.

Foo Fighters encabezó la etapa de lectura y Leeds este año y Glastonbury 2 años antes, así que no creo que sea tan malo como crees que es. Leer y Leeds es bueno, tu opinión es mala

We need an auto translate. Jose has some good stuff to say.

My feeling is that it will actually be the three absolutely massive headliners, and they managed to convince them (or threw more money at them) because Michael will be retiring after this festival and they're all his favourite bands.

Hell of a lineup to have your final shows on eh?

The retirement announcement will be after the festival so as not to make it bittersweet.

I'd kind of figured he had semi-retired anyway, but yeah I guess it makes sense for it be a bit of a big deal after the 50th.

I think the whole idea of Stones/Zep/Fleetwood is very exciting but where does 'Tay Tay' fit into all of this?

I'm pretty sure she's a dead cert and wouldn't take any slot other than headliner. In my opinion we'll only end up seeing one 'heritage' act eg. Fleetwood Mac alongside Taylor and maybe someone like The 1975 or Kendrick. ?

That would be excellent ?

Michael es básicamente la cara del festival de todos modos, no puedo imaginar que haga mucho por eso en estos días además de algunos actos específicos. tu opinion es buena

@Jose Águila Google tells me you said "Michael is basically the face of the festival anyway, I can't imagine that he does much for that these days in addition to some specific acts. your opinion is good"

Yeah but to a lot of people (including me) he's more than just the face, he's the originator, the driver, the pioneer of what the whole thing is. It'd be an amazingly sad time if he properly retired but what a way to send him off.

How would Mark Radcliffe know? Why did anyone even ask him?

As a BBC staff member who regularly covers the festival its fair to say that if there were rumours flying about, he may well know something.

 

He was asked as part of a Q&A at the end of chat about his book.

 

OK?

In exactly the same way the Chemical Brothers do all of their tracks...

When Chemical brothers play ‘out of control’ Live which is my favourite track by them, it has no vocal on it. Chemical are not a vocally led band though with a vocalist

Those prodigy tracks depend heavily on the vocals so are you thinking they will play them as acapella or use a different vocalist or play Keiths voice?

tbf Grimmy knew about The Strokes playing this year quite far in advance.

Estoy completamente de acuerdo con usted, pero creo que Michael está cada vez menos involucrado en los últimos años. Cuanto más lo pienso, más me sorprendería si Michael se desconectara por completo del festival.

But then again what do I know, I'm just a little Spanish boy
