Your 5 Must Sees

Recommended Posts

Thought this could be a fun topic. Who are you most looking forward to? Doesn't have to be in any particular order.

1. Denzel Curry - Truth Stage on Thursday
2. Gojira - Truth Stage on Friday
3. Tame Impala - Other Stage
4. IDLES - Truth Stage on Friday / Park on Friday
5. Friendly Fires - John Peel

Every Glasto I create a League Table, consisting of my 100% must-see acts (top flight) and a second tier, of acts I'll try to see/see if I'm nearby. They can be promoted and relegated based on how much I listen to them or get into them leading up to the festival. 

It's fun being a sad act.

My top 5 as it stands are:

1. Two Door Cinema Club (Friday, Other)
2. Christine and the Queens (TBC)
3. The Killers (Saturday, Pyramid)
4. Liam Gallagher (Saturday, Pyramid)
5. Spektre (Day TBC, Spaceport)

My top 5 to see at the moment are:

1. The Killers
2. Tame Impala
3. Interpol
4. Idles (hopefully twice!)
5. Jon Hopkins

Shame that it looks like there'll be a bit of a clash nightmare on the Friday with Tame Impala, Hopkins and potentially Interpol.

With a load to still be released and discounting DJ’s...

Idles

Stormzy

Low

Mattiel

Rosalia

They’re maybe not my most hotly anticipated acts for me but acts that I’m definitely going to watch (due to other festivals etc)

To be honest, I have no absolutely must sees.  But lots of would like to sees.  Frank Turner, Albert Hammond, Bananarama, Keb Mo, Smoove and Turrell are the top 5 I think.  Though regulars Rodney Brannigan, Lekkido, and Mik of course.  And the Doonicans cos I love em.

Yes! Positivity for once. From what is publicly known, and leaving out DJs (no spoilers!):

1. Kylie – Pyramid, Sunday. With the right weather and the right mood, this has the makings of an all-timer.

2. The Cure - Pyramid, Sunday. One of the biggest bucket lists to tick off for me. Hoping for a Disintegration-heavy setlist, even with a truncated runtime. Going to hug my mates and cry. Going to be good!

3. Rosalia – ??. The thought of Latin brass echoing over the hills, calling everyone to action, before a full-on stage show of the most exciting electronic pop in yonks, got me proper giddy today.

4. Gojira - Truth Stage, Friday. Barring something unexpected, like Placebo topping the JP, I will be trying my utmost to get a searing hot metal injection at Glasto. Hope to fuck there aren't bad queues...

5. Suede - Other Stage, Friday. We can dream, right?

Another, impossible, I'm a million different people from one day to the next,  "give us a list" type of question.

I'll have changed my mind/realised I've forgotten/missed something by the time I've hit Submit Reply.

Please stop doing my head in.

Particulary hard as I'm volunteering this year.

When the full (and I mean full) line up is up I will do my usual thing of making up my own Clashfinder (TM).

Then I'll get on the volunteers bus, get given my shifts and work something out around that.

@Wilcosican Wow! Why the immediate downvote? I'd hardly hit Submit Reply.

Guess I should have put a /s, or an emoticon, or a smiley after the "Please stop doing my head in line"?

That was my honest answer to the threads question. Wasn't saying other people can't have solid, unchangeable lists.

Seroiusly? Why the downvote?

Didn't mean to offend, just didn't see a top 5 in your reply @MrZigster and it seemed snarky for the sake of being snarky.

Chemical Brothers, Friendly Fires, Tame Impala, Michael Kiwanuka and The Streets are my "can't miss" acts, hopefully there aren't any clashes!

I have anxiety trying to answer this thread and just can't. Im also going to have to wait for the schedule... knowing Lizzo and Janet clash has me spinning.

The Cure and Lauryn Hill for music I  listened to a lot when growing up and love. 

Sam Fender and Jade Bird for new (to me) music that I have really enjoyed since the line ups have come out. 

And Kylie for the Sunday singalong!

Two of mine are The Cure and Janelle Monae 😭

The big one for the weekend is obviously Miley.

Then I reckon Cat Power and Charli XCX round out the top 5.
