We've been talking about RHCP for so many pages now I forget... is there anything actually linking them?
 

headlining festivals in Europe, and every time they do festivals in Europe, it's headlining the same festivals that your Coldplays, Foo Fighters etc. headline, yet apparently people think they couldn't possibly headline Glastonbury these days.

as for the Taylor thing, not really an issue for Glastonbury. just have a delayed broadcast of the Lover tracks from her set. there's no issue not broadcasting sets, Portishead (or was it Massive Attack?) didn't allow theirs broadcast before.

I don't really think the AMAs thing is even remotely true TBH, I can't see any court ruling that performing a medley of tracks live would constitute "re-recording" them. And if Taylor was arsed, she would just do it and then fight them in court on it.

I'm a big fan of her music, but as a person I think she's incredibly manipulative, and this open letter just seems like the latest in a long history of her trying to twist the narrative to suit her.

The full Stones set is a bootleg. It wasn't broadcast, only a section of it.

Surprised the Stones haven’t released it yet given they seem to release a live album every few weeks.

Justin Timberlake is apparently headlining Pinkpop the week before Glastonbury. I reckon he's a much better fit for BST and I don't think they'd book him and Taylor Swift to headline in the same year but another name to consider.

Are these two negotiations kept separate then? Make a deal to play Glastonbury, then go to the beeb to see what coverage they can give?

Yeah JT sounds like a BST booking.

Its a shame because when he first came back he was making really exciting music but now he’s just fizzled for me. His old stuff still bangs though!

But he offered to play for free and Glastonbury said no!

Yeah he’s just too big to do anything other than headline. He’s beyond a household name.

They’re shite though mate. Nobody is saying they aren’t big. They’re just totally irrelevant except to bros with 7/8th length shorts on.

Kendrick probably wouldn’t broadcast his set either would he if he played? Would be weird only having one headliner properly shown over the weekend.

Fuck it, 3 headliners that aren’t broadcast and hopefully 2021 demand will be a little lighter

I thought he only showed a couple of songs but I may be misremembering.

The whole thing is on YouTube, but maybe it wasn't shown live?

That may be the case actually! He didn’t show anything when he subbed in 2015, he must have softened a bit!

I know we’ve been reliably informed that we won’t hear anything about the headliners until after new year but could someone down in Somerset just have a wee look in the oxfam shop windows just in case!🙏

Saw this then two minutes later had an facebook notification saying Glastonbury had a new post on their page. 

It was a voter registration reminder, which is great! ....  but allllssoooo..... would have preferred an announcement.
