As long as Taylor doesn't bring out Sheeran

Lets face it, she will probably bring out Sheeran :(

Taylor 0% - not my thing at all, literally zero chance of me being there.

Paul - 100% - I've always missed out on seeing him for one reason or another, I love the Beatles and for me he's a perfect Glastonbury booking. so very excited!

Kendrick - 2% - Not a fan and it looks very likely that there will be some big headliners elsewhere. My wife is a big fan, hence the 2% rather than zero!

Whilst I definitely wont be at Taylor or Kendrick, I completely agree that they are massive artists and deserve to grace that stage.

Taylor - 100% Never seen her, but would love to see her. 

McCartney - 50%. It's a maybe. A legend, but I've never been a massive beatles fan.

Kendrick - 60%. Probably will watch clashes dependant. Need to explore his back catelogue.

Possibly the most diverse set of headliners Glastonbury have had ever IMO.

Yeah a possibility definitely. I'd quite like McCartney to have no guests to be honest, don't think it's really needed. He probably will though

I would agree with that, I just want banger after banger.  

Unless he can get Kermit for the frog chorus ?

Kendrick - 0%, not my bag but completely get why it would be a big booking

McCartney - 3 million % - It's a moment I'll keep for a lifetime

Swift - 0% - see Kendrick

Will be at Noel wherever he plays. Win win really for me, he'll probably either headline Other Friday/Sunday or sub McCartney. I think I'd rather he subbed McCartney so I can find a good spot early and just stay there, similar to when The Stones did it and Primal Scream subbed

This is me :)

Poor you lot with 0% on each.

Out of interest (no subtle digs) who would you have preferred to see?

No prejudice I just want to know who you would prefer instead.... and can they be within the realms of possibility here.

Macca > Aerosmith | Dua Lipa?

It would be madness to put Aerosmith up against Macca. HUGE swathes of crossover fans there, it Steve and the lads do play I'd be gutted if they were up against Macca as I'd miss them.

Kendrick - 0%

Macca - 100%

Taylor - 1%

Sorry, that's not clear - it was meant to be Aerosmith subbing Macca and Dua Lipa headlining the Other ?

Kendrick - 20% - need to listen to more of his stuff. 

McCartney - 110% - As others have said, it's a moment I'll keep for a lifetime

Swift - 50% - Like some of the tracks on RED and had an ex that played 1989 incessantly so know some of that. Depends who she's up against.

Hard question to answer that, if the question is 'if you could pick any 3 active acts to headline who would it be?' It would be McCartney, The Strokes and AM. But I get the latter two wouldn't happen, for different reasons.

Having 2 at 0% doesn't bother me at all though. I've got the one I wanted the most, gives me the opportunity to get to other stages/areas, that's the beauty of Glastonbury and why we love it so much

It's not about who you would prefer to see, at least not for me, I think they're all good bookings but there is 0% chance of me choosing to watch something I almost certainly wouldn't enjoy.

We all love Glastonbury because of the huge diversity and choice, there will 100% be something else on that I'd prefer to be at.

I put 0% but I've no problem with her being the headliner, I'm happy enough with 1, probably 2, nights at the big one. The question was how likely you are to watch the act and I'm being completely honest that there's no way that's where I'll be on Sunday night.

Hmm I wouldn’t go as far as to say the other two are dead on arrival choices. They are within the realms of possibility - it’s not impossible.

Ah, ok. In that case you have all my backing on this prediction.

I mean that’s the question I’m asking though. If the three headliners don’t float your boat, surely there are three others which would?

Glad for you all and can see why it would be considered a massive lineup, but personally a bit disappointed.  Kendrick and Macca really not doing it for me at all.  As long as Taylor gets confirmed I will be happy, but now feeling really nervous about it - I really want at least one big night at the Pyramid

Kendrick - 20%, I have tried repeatedly to get into him - just not my sort of thing.  If there is nothing else to grab me when he is on I might go to see what he is like live 

Paul McCartney - 0%,  boring and just not into the music

Taylor Swift - 110%, There is no possible act that would make me miss this one

Kendrick - 100% no act I'd be pulled away by.

McCartney - 10% My Granddad didn't walk out of a Beatles gig in the 60s for me to tarnish that story 60 years later and I'm just not that bothered but appreciate how huge the booking is.

Swifty - 25% I'd go along for a listen if there was nothing else on and loads of my crew were going, but in reality there's going to be something else I'd prefer to see.

Not necessarily. Something I've realised is that when people ask who I want to see at GF, an awful lot of mine are acts that would appear further down the pecking order or on different stages. When I see the lists of names that get touted as possible headliners there are very few that would be a definitive draw for me. Not just this year, but generally.

Throw in the fact that I like to use the fest to see different things and stuff I've never seen before, which means I'm less keen on returning acts that I've seen and loved like Stones, Springsteen, Coldplay (yes I know), Blur etc, and I'm really running short.

The only Pyramid headline size acts that come to mind for me are REM and Daft Punk, and for various reasons they aren't going to happen.

Bit of a ramble, but might make sense to someone out there :D
