2020 headliners

Recommended Posts

I think Emily saying the third headliner was still in negotiations is more likely to mean 'our first/second/whatever choice fell through and so we're still trying to talk somebody in to it' rather than 'we're trying our hardest in a long winded negotiation to secure this one single act'. Obviously once the headliners are announced we'll see our two never played before headliners and know who the third was, but I'm guessing it'll be pretty clear due to them being the odd one out in the wow factor department.

True, but like I said Rage wouldn't really fit with the hints that Emily has given so far, so I'm struggling to think of a feasible reunion that hasn't already been ruled out, has never played the festival or likely to have been in prolonged negotiations.

There's still the third headliner, which she could be playing down as not booked as they have got back together yet, which may also have involved long winded negotiations

Yeah I agree with @FloorFiller. There's going to be a bit of spin on what Emily says in interviews isn't there? She's unlikely to say, if asked, that they haven't decided on the 3rd headliner yet, or that their first choice turned them down/asked for too much money etc.

Saying "it's in negotiations" is suitably vague enough to make it sound like a firm decision has been made and it's simply a case of ironing out the finer details - when the truth could really be a variety of things.

Basically, we know nothing, as usual.

That's what I'm saying, I can't think of a possible reunion that would be in such prolonged negotiations. Open to suggestions, though!

Coldplay are breaking up so they can reunite for the festival.

AC/DC seem the most likely as they haven’t announced there plans yet, maybe negotiating with Glasto. 
 

the others are Rage and the Impossible bands of Oasis and Pink Floyd.

No one else I can think of big enough and willing... Kendrick hasn’t played so him and Tay for those who haven’t played and Stones/Macca/AC/DC for the pyramid expansion Saturday night set.

If you asked Coachella goers a week ago if RATM would be headlining they would of said “not a fucking chance”.

There’s always hope!

Was about to say that Roger Waters has dates over the Glastonbury weekend, but just had a quick look and can't find them. Am I misremembering or just not looking properly?

Doesn’t seem likely at all next year though.

Apparently planning a North American tour

I mean Prophets of Rage had an entire summer tour planned which was canned because of the rage reunion!

Ah, maybe that was it. Guess it's not impossible, but incredibly unlikely.

Not sure on this either way. If they were scraping around, struggling, trying to convince someone, wouldn't they turn to one of the Other Stage headliners if they are apparently  sobig? The fact they're in negotiations sounds to me like they are trying to make something happen that could be on the same level as the other two

I think what these past few days have taught me is that elusive posts on Instagram are an indication that a band has reformed.

I would actually put money on at least one of Oasis, Pink Floyd, Led Zeppelin doing shows again. Someday.

Also agree with @FloorFiller, although didn't Emily make it out like there's a particular act they've been chasing since summer, or was it more vague? Can't remember exactly what she was meant to have said.

Yup she said they’ve been chasing this act since the summer and her kids are frequently asking whether they’ve signed them up yet.

Which sounds like to me it’s someone who doesn’t jump at any opportunity to play the festival. i.e probably international.

Two headliners already booked that haven’t played before says ‘international’ to me too.

yarp. I also wonder if it’s someone who can’t sign the dotted line yet (for whatever reason).

In an absolute cuckooa, fantasy land, Kate Bush would be ideal. Has she played before?

Never going to happen in a million years, mind.

In absolute cuckoo fantasy land - Talking heads would be  my ideal... but they all hate each other :(

Talking heads, black sabbath... I had thought of a 3rd one the other day but I can't remember
