eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

I think the ideal band for this slot, this year in particular, is Lynyrd Skynyrd. The line up so far is clearly very light on blues rock artists. Its very heavy on female/pop/dance  acts and one relatively new grime artist. Every year Glastonbury throws in a few acts aimed at my generation of aging rock types.  Skynyrd would be an ideal counterweight  - LOTS of blues and country laced guitar, a bunch of genuine rock classics that nearly everyone knows and a whole lot of attitude. Bon Jovi would also be a good shout.

It's not going to be Metallica. Lars may be there but the rest of the band will most likely be at home.

They headlined 5 years ago, are still headlining stadiums, why would they play 3rd down?

It's not Metallica because it's going to be Greta Van Fleet but in my head it will be a Metallica secret set and nothing can tell me otherwise.

I have pondered about Lars’ love of the fest bringing the band back in 2020, but playing a guest spot on the Pyramid after already crossing the top spot off the list seems unlikely.

Is it not Weezer since they're in London on the Saturday? Or have they already been ruled out?

I'm pretty sure it's being billed as their only UK show

Weezer's Brixton gig on the saturday still has tickets unsold for both stalls and balcony. I hope they're at glastonbury on the sunday, and they're just gonna announce late.

Would much rather have someone relevant (e.g. Architects or, god forbid, GVF) rather than some old hasbeens. Therapy? also is a decent shout.

Slayer would be epic but unsure if it works with tour dates/how serious Download’s last UK show tag line is...

Frankly I think it's really overpriced. They haven't been good in years and their early stuff is good, but not good enough to consider them legends or anything.

Just seen it's £63 for standing. Jesus wept! Even for Brixton that is ridiculous. Just glad they're at NOS Alive.

There’s no way someone like Therapy are going to play third down on the Pyramid

Probably. They’re at Werchter anyway.

Next?

Saw them at a couple of festivals last year. Good crowd at Bearded Theory, about 20 people at Feis. Would like to see them there but they ain't playing that slot.

Must be the case, seems mad them being over Glasto weekend and not playing the festival. Possibly on before Chem Bros on the Sunday.

Re: Metal slot. I really can't see it not being Greta Van Fleet: Touring Europe, suits the pyramid, free on the Friday, still a few tickets left to sell on their tour, subbing Muse at Werchter...

Imagine if it's Snow Patrol & Emily believes they are "rock".

 

If it is, suddenly Catfish are going to be a wished for metal band lol

Really hoping it’s something none of us have thought of and the surprise makes us less disappointed with whatever weak booking it actually is. Would love that.

The White album they released about two or three years ago was pretty good, their Brixton date on that tour only cost me £39 too so its a huge leap in price if it is £63.

They've got a loyal fanbase though so it might sell, before the gig I had a meal in Nandos accross the road and there were fans lined up all around the venue ridiculously early
