2020 headliners


Recommended Posts

If RHCP play then I think it will definitely be on the Pyramid. As much as we’re apparently getting bigger than usual Other stage headliners I don’t see a band who’ve been headlining festivals and playing stadiums for about two decades taking that slot.

I agree with others that BST or IOW are more likely for them but their gig in Italy right in the middle of IOW weekend is a bit worrying.

Taylor Swift is out.   https://amp.theatlantic.com/amp/article/588118/

Looks like we might have finally got Gaga for Fri judging by her latest heavily Glasto related Instagram post... I mean, they're striking pyramid poses... Even the flight attendan

Still to look forward to: • Self confirmations ramping up • Predicting the next announcement  • 1st poster day • Who's playing which stage and when • Who hasn't made the 1st p

Yeah this talk of them playing below headline is very silly. I don’t think they’ve played below headline anywhere for 20 years!

I can only speak for myself but By The Way, Blood Sugar Sex Magik, Californiacation, Stadium Arcadium were some of the earliest albums I remember listening to.

I just have zero interest in anything they’ve released after 2006. Don’t know if that’s a shared experience?

Na I think most people will be the same, myself included. They've only had 2 albums since though. They're just one of those bands that hardly anybody really cares about their new material, but they have more than enough huge songs and albums to continue off. 

Talk of headlining the Other (from others, not still responding to the quote) is pretty wild though imo. Let's not forget that she said "kind of Pyramid level headliners". That does not apply to RHCP. I think the biggest names we should expect for that are Foals, Biffy Clyro, 1975 etc, not one of the biggest bands of the last 20 years.

RHCP would be such a weird booking for Glastonbury in 2020, but with the headliner pool dwindling and some of those left to tick off either demanding too much money or just not being interested in doing it I could possibly see why they’d go down that rout, given that they’ve been a huge band for so long and never played. It’d look weird as hell on paper, but you can’t argue that they’ve got enough tunes to keep a festival crowd happy. I don’t see it happening and think BST or IOW seem more likely, but if they’ve struggled to tie down a headliner then they’re a perfectly adequate one who seem willing to do it.

RHCP would fall into the Taylor/Kendrick category of never having played the farm, yes?

But didn’t Emily’s vocabulary somewhat imply the two headliners they had booked were both solo artists?

Don’t think so. Her words were open to interpretation and she referred to the two booked headliners as something like ‘the people involved’. Whilst you could argue that if it was two bands she could have said so, the use of the term ‘people’ could indicate two solo artists, one solo artist and one band, or even two bands (if EE didn’t want to give away that fact).

God we need something new. Any rumour.. Anything at all. 

I think Emily's comments about two that have never played before have done a decent job of spicing up the conversation.  We were stuck on conversations about 1975, Foals and Macca for long enough!

Hear a lot on here about who the 2 headliners who have never played the festival before might be, but who are peoples guesses for the act that has been in negotiations since the summer? And are we thinking it is an act that has played the festival before?

Madonna.

That would make it 3 headliners who've never played before.
