2020 headliners

I'm with you on this one - I also think that Fleetwood Mac would be met with initial excitement because of the name factor, but then a lot of younger people would listen to them and realise they don't like them.

 

hardly, I've been to see them 3 times in the last 5 years and the crowd has been mostly people in their 20s/30s.

But when Zep do headline, reckon they'll break the headliner crowd record? Sounds like it will be a pretty huge event

Probably not, they're will be a lot of U25s that wouldn't give a toss 

P.S the age is purely a guess, so don't hang on it ?

the average Led Zep or Fleetwood Mac fan wouldn't be seen dead in a field full of the unwashed masses (in their eyes) and would happily pay £200+ for a premium seat at Wembley or the O2. Not saying either would have a small crowd, but I do think it wouldn't be Rolling Stones or your average legends slot level of busy.

Luckily I'll be 30 2 weeks before so I'll be allowed with the oldies into the Pyramid field for Led Zeppelin. 

Come on guys! Bar an ABBA reunion,  the biggest 3 bands, with members still alive that could ever be booked would be Led Zep, Fleetwood Mac and Pink Floyd! None of those would have a half empty field. Half of you have lost your heads

This thread has gone mental. Pretty sure some of the people thumping the 1975 drum are the same ones claiming Led Zep wouldn’t pull a big crowd. Insanity. 

If i hadn't already upvoted all the Taylor Swift BDSM stuff you'd be getting so many green arrows

They would definitely pull an astronomical crowd

Zeppelin would pull a huge crowd no question, just not as big as FM these days. I know about 30 people (all under 26) going next year and struggle to think of any that would be arsed about Zeppelin.

This is outrageous. I don't know who you think the average Led Zep (or FM) fans are, and why they'd have such an opinion of the 'unwashed masses'. This is such a baseless assessment of their fan base, and actually very inaccurate.

I’m 26 and mentioned led zeppelin in our glasto group chat, 1 person was excited the other 8 myself included aren’t bothered, would maybe go for a song or two to say we’ve seen them and then go somewhere else, don’t think I could name you a song without opening Spotify. 
 

they’d get a big crowd, but I’m not sure a big crowd would stay for the full set

I think maybe it seems that way because FM are a going concern these days and in the public eye. If Led Zep reformed and announced a tour (regardless of a Glastonbury appearance), they'd be breaking records everywhere.

They might objectively but I don't think the general crowd would enjoy it as much.

This is using your own lack of interest as evidence of everyone else's lack of interest...

I couldn't name more than one Taylor Swift song. This has absolutely no bearing on her popularity or suitability as a headliner.

Not sure I've ever seen such an excited reaction in the surrounding vicinity from a bar playing a jam than I did this year when the Inn on the Green put on Fleetwood Mac's Dreams.

Maybe, but I'd argue the average age at a Zeppelin concert would be almost double that of Glastonbury. Whereas a FM Concert would be similarly aligned.

No way is this true.

Which part? 

Glasto punters definitely skew younger, even if it's got.a better age spread than other festivals.

Fleetwood Mac's recent tour was heavily attended by millennials (as others in this thread have pointed out).

They also have more Spotify listeners than Zeppelin, even if it's only be a few million a month. We know that the majority of Spotify users are millennials (Spotify have confirmed this in the past).
