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

Much, much more likely IMO to be Kendrick than Post Malone, but I would think if summer outdoor shows anywhere in the UK were announced, I would say PM would shift more in any region than KL.

Does anyone disagree?

Definitely agree - Posty would definitely shift more.

Genuine question, based on the clues we have, is there anyone it could possibly be other than Taylor and Kendrick? Also using a bit of common sense.

Sure.

On the female side, there's a fairly small list of people who are big enough and match the clues - Taylor Swift, Pink, Madonna, Rihanna, Ariana Grande, and Kate Bush. It's just that one of those is far more likely than the rest of them put together.

On the male side, the evidence for Kendrick seems a lot less solid and you could probably come up with a quite a few names. Drake, Eminem, Timberlake, Phil Collins, and Bruno Mars (to the best of my knowledge) not having done it before. Obviously Elton would be on the list if dates didn't rule him out, and as an old bastard I'll refuse to fully accept that Billy Joel and Tom Waits aren't big enough even though many will claim that. Probably others I'm missing as well.

I find it really interesting how much love there is for Kendrick on here - it is definitely disproportionate with what I hear outside of this forum.

And yet just over 50% who replied to the poll on here have little or no interest in seeing him.  That would suggest with the wider audience at Glasto the number would be a bit lower - maybe 30%-35%. 

Serious Question - does that really fit with Headliner status? (ducks for cover)

I mentioned the same thing on here a few weeks ago but yes he is certainly big enough to play I just wondered if it would resonate in the UK. Apparently so. I've seen a lot of love for him on social media and a lot of hate but that is standard for absolutely anybody these days. Just look at the Macca announcement.

See also Stormzy 12 months back.

I don't think a lot of peeps here talking about Kendrick understand what a legend status he already has in hip hop. Maybe Post Malone will shift more concert tickets, but there is no way Glasto would go with him over Kendrick.

Critically acclaimed? check

Commercially successful? check

Bold and innovative? check

Like Jay-Z in 2008 and Stormzy last year it will turn out to be a fantastic booking for the festival.

yeah agreeed, if you doubting kendrick you just havent paid enough attention to his body of work.

Get on rapgenius.com, follow the lyrics with the album. if you are not a native hip hop listener, ALOT of what kendrick is saying will pass you by. 

Id love to see how much does a dollar really cost at glastonbury. highly doubt hed play it but would be an amazing moment.

If tele tubbies were announced as headliners 80% of people on here would think they were the best thing since sliced bread.

Yes, he headlines any other festival on the planet, Glasto is no different. He'd draw as big a crowd as most other 'normal' headliners, and pulling numbers out of thin air isn't gonna change that. 

Having a quick look, on his DAMN tour he did two nights in a row at the O2, then was at Wembley arena a week later!

You obviously were not here for 2016's announcement of Coldplay and muse then.

I thought Kendrick at his o2 show was amazing. Loved it. Massive fan of him too.

Reading was a little lacklustre, don't know why? Where I was stood, the crowd was dead. That probably played a huge part in it as I like to see some movement and hype.

If he is playing 2020, I hope he'll have a new album out by then. A few singles will be disappointing.

But what if it was two female headliners....... ?.......
