A lot of people thought that set was great. Certainly everyone around us seemed to enjoy it.

so did most people on here, including several now saying that the National blew it/sucked/whatever.

like lot of efests things though, just repeat it enough times and it becomes fact.

With Foals there's also the drummer saying they hadn't been booked in October, and it doesn't seem like they've been struggling for acts this year with the amount of rumours we have. I think Dua Lipa, Noel and Elbow are the most likely trio at the moment.

I liked it personally *and* thought they blew it, FWIW

Got a lot of history with the festival and is a homegrown act who gets it. To The National I’m sure it’s just another festival, and to Glastonbury I’m sure The National are just another band they’ve booked a couple of times. Likewise why I could see Foals getting the gig again, but not The National.

I think we tend to overthink things if grumpyface from The National said they wanted to do it before anyone else was lined up they'd get booked. Friends of the festival get rebooked because it's easy but it's perfectly possible for a non-friend to make things just as easy by giving Emily a buzz last summer when they were sorting out The National's 2020 plans.

I enjoyed it, but their setlist decisions (namely the four song run of new material) was a mistake for the position they were in. And I know a lot of people have said that the crowd around them enjoyed it, but my experience was that it all kind of died on its arse, although to be fair considering they don’t have anything close to a ‘hit’ anyway, that probably would’ve happened regardless of setlist for a crowd waiting for Foo Fighters.

indeed. they didn't smash it by any means, but it's funny reading the thread from that time and how many people thought it went well, compared to most now making out that it was some kind of trainwreck.

The Lana Del Rey / Stevie Nicks odds have gone infinitesimal.

I’ve lost count of how many acts Matt has said are definitely subbing now. I suppose if you throw enough balls you’ll eventually win a coconut.

Given The National used to be around every summer and never got booked, then finally did get booked and stunk the place out, I'd wager they'll go back to being around every summer and not getting booked.

Not announced any festival dates for this year so looks like he, understandably so considering the tone of his new album, might just be sticking to his own shows.

I mean yeah but he does have a bit of a special thing for Glastonbury. He did turn up with Kylie last year.

Their last show is only a few days before Glastonbury. I wouldn’t be surprised if glasto is their last date of their tour. I’d be shocked if Nick didn’t make an appearance at Glastonbury at all. Especially for it’s 50th!

I’ll be elsewhere for the subs except maybe Noel. I for one think Noel into Macca will amazing. Everyone together having a good sing along which for my crew hasn’t ever happened.

I’m sure in the years leading up to 2017 they were always around though and weren’t booked. Probably be the same again this year, maybe they just like touring early summer.

And fucked it two times. 

I'd say 1.5. The run of new songs was odd but they recovered significantly. Can't comment on 2010 because I saw the dead weather (majority rule).

Noel finishing with All You Need Is Love and Macca coming out to Hard Day's Night or Eight Days a Week would be unbelievable.

It'll be the night of the massive pissed up singalong:

  • Aerosmith - DWMAT
  • Noel - DLBIA
  • Macca - Jude
