Have you seen The Wicker Man (Nick Cage 2006 remake)? That's the worst film I've ever seen. I was in hysterics in the cinema but sadly for them, it isn't a comedy.

I have. still not as bad as Left Behind though. I was actually angry at the end of that when I realised I'd been conned into watching a film with a dubious "religious message".

THANK YOU!! Such a genuinely terrible film.

Not sure where this is from. He's got a rep for being a bit of a prima donna and by his own admission was unpleasant to those close to him during his cocaine years, but I can't recall hearing about him behaving badly on stage with his audience.

And besides, the farm has seen many an act who has a reputation with them. They coped with Kanye well enough.

My suspicion is the reality is a lot less exciting than the myths.

He humiliated a steward at a concert in Gloucester a couple of years ago. She was stopping people from moving from seats and he picked her out and called her 'Hitler' as part of a tirade  - to the point where she was crying. He then apologised and got her on stage to overcompensate.

There was the incident in Vegas where he stormed off after being annoyed by a fan who he had invited onto stage ... 

I know its the Reg Fan Club on here, but hes a strop waiting to happen I reckon. :)

Let’s just take a moment to consider the holy trinity of high concept 90’s action films:

The Rock - Con Air - Face/Off

Just screen each one at headliner time on the Pyramid and folk will be happy. Trust me.

In those three films you described one of my cultural cornerstones of the 90s.

Cage recs not mentioned; Joe, Bringing Out The Dead, Adaptation, Mom and Dad.

And if you want to see Cage SWING for the fences, Vampires Kiss is the film for you, you won't say the alphabet in the same way again.

I saw them at festival 3 months ago and thought they were very meh. 
 

They’re not glasto 50th headline material. 

Would put money on them getting a bigger crowd than Kendrick though. 

I dislike the notion that just because its the 50th, it has to be special. I think it'll lead to a fair few disappointed people on here when we don't get all the special acts and secret sets. I'm still waiting it to be Foals/1975/Taylor.

In the interests of maintaining something approaching sanity, can we agree that there needs to be some form of Nic Cage representation at Glastonbury, and go back to arguing over Foals vs 1975? :D

I'm hot for Reg. A bit of drama on the Pymild would be rather entertaining.

What about a bit of Phil Collins - same sort of vein as Reg, all the hits, did a bit of a tour recently.

All of the realistic headliners are deemed ‘not special enough’ so they are going to lose on that front. I find it baffling that the standard is so high that Paul McCartney is not considered special enough!

the fact that no acts are being deleted from the betting means that no one is putting on money with any certainty - not even the people who claim to know.

because when you *REALLY* know you pile on money and more money because it's guaranteed free money ... and who doesn't like free money?

So no one knows.

I'd forgotten about his cameo in Kick Ass and his legendary "switch to kryptonite" line too

Apologies if I’m misreading bookies odds but Taylor, Paul and Kendrick are now the favourites on William Hill right?

We have too much power.

I'm sure Nicolas Cage will pop up on it in a few hours.

Another one with no mention of Aerosmith. 

Aerosmith are now 4th on sky net.

@eFestivals Do you think it’s interesting that the top trio bet for Sky Bet has the headliners in the order that they won’t be in? For example putting Taylor on the Saturday when she is most likely the Sunday. So they can capitalise off people thinking they are making the correct bet.

The terms and conditions on the betting imply they can play on any of the 3 nights as long as they headline.

Ah I misread I thought it was structured in a way that people were putting a bet on Paul to be the Friday, Taylor the Saturday etc

Let's hope this doesn't cause an argument but I am just throwing some information out there...

Someone on the Reading/Leeds forum has said he has information on the headliners been The Strokes/Stormzy/Travis Scott/BMTH, so if this is true (which it likely isn't, but let's just go with it) Does that make Foals (God I said the F word :O) more likely for Glastonbury as they wont be playing Reading/Leeds which some people expected them to do, and they won't go for smaller festivals as they did that this year...but with a double album release this year and a tour next year surely they will be at some festivals?

Were they expected to do Reading? I guess they were possible but I don’t think they were expected.

A prominent slot at Glastonbury and their own shows I reckon. They’ve got some shows throughout summer already booked.

Those three headliners won't even be the correct bet in any order tho.

I know they were mentioned quite a bit on the Reading/Leeds forum a while ago, but I haven't been looking at that forum recently, until just. So I know they were at least a rumour for it, maybe not expected...

What you're saying sounds likely in fairness

I agree entirely.

Don’t like to be cynical on these things but if Macca/Elton/Swift/Aerosmith is the expectation then there is a high risk of an underwhelmed thread incoming.

It could potentially be Spice Girls / Lewis Capaldi / Florence + The Machine.

I like these acts but think there will be some upset people on this thread.

Is this the most in the dark we've been at this point? Nothing significant to point to anyone really at the moment..

They played R/L fairly recently so would be shocked to see them back so soon.

There always is -  but I struggle to see how Kendrick, Paul and Taylor is something disappointing? There will be a lot of attention on the resale if those three are at the top of the bill.

2017 was quieter imo. Yeah we got Radiohead in Oct but we had no idea that Foos and Ed were touring until much later in the process. We were hung up on whether it was the Stone Roses.

IN MY OPINION it goes:  
 
Beyoncé > Taylor > Gaga  
Elton > Fleetwood Mac > Macca  
 
But any of either trio would be a treat.  

Where would Rihanna fit into all of this?

I’d much prefer Ri Ri to Taylor and Gaga personally. 

Special mentions to Unfaithful, Hate that I love you and California King Bed. 

She seems to be teasing a new album, or has been for some time. Not really in the rumour mill although there’s odds on sites for her. Can’t see it but I’d definitely welcome it.
