2020 headliners

Recommended Posts

Kendrick, Elton, and Taylor would be my dream trio, to be honest. Would mean I’m at the Pyramid every night, which isn’t ideal, but that would be such an incredible line up. 

Rest assured, though. Because I want it, the headliners we’ll actually get are The Foals, Coldplay, and Paul McCartney (featuring Chris Martin).

I reckon November 14th for first headliner announcement, based on absolutely nothing at all,

 

and it’ll be T-Swizz

I don’t think Swift will be first. 

This time last year the Cure were announcing festivals left, right and centre and yet Glasto didn’t come till March/April IIRC. My money is on Swift announcing either her own show(s) in the UK or BST (which doesn’t usually announce until Nov/Dec) and not being confirmed until next year.

We almost made it a decent amount of time before Foals were brought up again.

I have watched the videos for, I think they're called, Crazy and Crying? Watched them many, many times.

Awful, awful tunes, but I was a teenager at the time and, well, I'm sure we all remember Alicia Silverstone and Liv Tyler. 

Crazy and Cryin' sound like the exact same songs to me, but it may be intentional? Loved those as a teenager as well! Haven't heard them in a few years, but sure I could belt out Crazy with the best of them if they were confirmed.

I'm hoping as there's nothing to rule him out yet either. 

It comes in threes they say so would be quite a year for him:

1- John Lewis Advert 

2- Rocketman film 

3- Announced to Headline Glastonbury 

 

*Tongue in cheek of course but here's hoping.

 

At a guess, no. 3 isn't as important to him as the other two, given that he's only ever shrugged the topic off.

I misspoke to say he's 'not in the running' bc that would mean he's ruled out, which he's not. But with mounting late-2020 UK/EU dates and nothing earlier, he does seem to only exist in contention because he's retiring and because it's the anniversary; the former was the case this summer and probably in 2021 too, so just the anniversary really. 🤷‍♂️

Yeah jut put these two on and I've definitely got them mixed up before. I would have said it might be the intention to follow a formula until I realised they were on the same album. Why????

The video for Crazy is a bit fucked, and that's even when you take out the fact that one of the stars is his daughter.

They have it at Disneyland Paris too 

They’re updating it to an Avengers or Iron Man coaster in most parks. They’ll probably keep some kind of reference in to Aerosmith. Tony Stark probably sees himself as the third ‘toxic twin’...

Personally I think the only suitable test for a headliner is do they have their own rollercoaster. If no, need not apply.

If I had two rollercoaster based on my music I suspect I'd not be up for playing third fiddle beneath Foals and the Courteeners.

So what’s the thinking on first headliner announcement?

Can’t see one anytime soon considering we’ve already had DiRoss.

We'll they've gradually been announcing things a bit earlier over the past couple of years (no pattern, ahtt etc) and since they've got two of the headliners fully signed on, I think we'll get at least once of them before Christmas.

Still think there's a chance we get something before the book release. The BBC and co. probably won't be reporting on the book release, however if they drop a headliner announcement just before it releases I can see the different outlets having a "and they are set to release a book commemorating the 50th anniversary of the festival" line within the news article. I imagine Google searches go through the roof when a headliner is announced as well, and people doing a Google search will likely stumble on to the Glastonbury website when the book will be all over there.

MGM studios? I went on that in 99.  How is that still a ride now? 

Was the best attraction of the park though 

Disneyland Paris, think it’s changing to Iron Man now though.

I see Bon Jovi have a song called Roller Coaster, so I’m predicting a double rollercoaster bill with Aerosmith 

Where are RHCP in this equation?

I don't get the whole Taylor Swift love - am I missing something? Are there particular songs I should listen to which might help me to 'see the light'? Or is it just a zeitgeist thing that I missed out on?

Illuminati shit mate, I don’t fuck with it and I don’t want to know.

You’re best just to nod your head, and be at the pyramid on the Sunday of the festival.

Kendrick being added to the rumours page...you love to see it. @eFestivals Neil is that based on the info from @Col!n?

sort of - it definitely adds to it.

But I reckon the betting odds alone are enough to rumour them both (should really have had Kendrick rumoured earlier, i guess), because if people are putting money on to shorten their odds like that, there's definitely a rumour going round.

Kendrick being booked is very similar to the Kanye booking (imo). An act Emily proudly makes no secret she wants to book, and it will happen one year (or eventually).

Like we knew Kanye was going to be booked one year - was just a matter of when!
