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'

Yes mate, when am I ever going to see Janet Jackson or Miley Cyrus again? Also, I've been lucky enough to tick off so many acts on the lineup already.   Acts like The Cure, Liam G, Idles etc I've

@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

Low, Sharon, Sons of Kemet, Comet is Coming, Cure. Until the Twilight Lads get added anyway. 

Sorry to pee on your bonfire, but The Twilight Sad claim to never have been approached to play.

Vampire Weekend - not a huge fan of their latest album but never seen them live and 'Modern Vampires..' is one of my favourite albums of the last few years.

Yeah, this, to the letter.

That's what they would say, Amy Lawn, isn't it? Refusing to give up belief til the full lineup drops.

This is difficult to say without the full lineup and seeing who is clashing etc, I'm also swayed by who I will see at Big Weekend on Saturday otherwise Miley would have made the list:

1. Chemical Brothers

2. Kylie

3. Janelle Monae

4. Christine & The Queens

5. The Streets

BCUC - if the sun's out and the cider is in hand
Kylie - more for the crowd laughs than anything else!
Hawkwind
Idles
The Damned

This was hard - there's me thinking that the line up was meh and I have about 20 must sees!!!

Oh go on then... Sticking with officially announced acts and not including DJs (cos that list would be way too hard to whittle down) I'm going for:

The Comet is Coming
Gojira
Mavis Staples
Lauryn Hill
Rosalia

 

Would have said Christine & the Queens but I have this weird hunch I'm definitely going to end up missing her.

I saw Vampire Weekend do a tight 45 mins on the Pyramid in 2013. All killer no filler. Was ace. 

From what I see, the band is a bit bigger, a bit jammier. Expecting some flab but with their hit parade, it would be hard to do a bad job of it.

I'll see them at any rate unless its a death clash with The Cure or Kylie (please god no)

Unbelievers, Unbearably White, Walcott, A-Punk, Run, Giving Up The Gun, Ya Hey, Worship You, Campus, Diane Young, Hannah Hunt... get at least a half dozen of this in there and I'm sold. Get all of it and I'm over the moon.

Number 1 must see: Mavis Staples (My only I will definitely see!!) 

Mik Artistik - As he is playing so many times including Wednesday I know I'll end up catching him

So many others are clashing all over the place that I really don't know who I'll see

Do I go Hot Chip (Who I am guaranteed to like) or gamble on Chemical Brothers 

Same with Janelle Monae vs The Cure

Same with This Is The Kit vs Fat White Family

Will hopefully see Lounge Kittens, Kate Tempest, Lizzo and Neneh Cherry

I have a list of about half the line up of things I would like to see so definitely going to be ok but I don't think I have ever been so conflicted or indecisive about who I'm going to see. 

Sorry for not just giving a straight answer but if anyone can give me any steer on my 3 big clashes so far then that'd be awesome!

I've gone for:

Hot Chip - seeing them if they're playing Glastonbury has become sort of a tradition for me and they've never let me down yet.

Janelle Monae - no brainer for me. My wife thinks I'm obsessed and she might be right.

Desperately wanted to see This is the Kit, but I'm gonna be at Kylie with Mini-Woffy (although this clash is going purely by Clashfinder at its still completely unreliable stage...so I'm hoping it's wrong).

I've seen Hot Chip 4 or 5 times and I know they are going to be brilliant and I love them but never seen Chemical Brothers. Not really a huge fan but think I'd certainly love a greatest hits set which I assume at a festival is what they would do. 

Janelle Monae is tricky as I am actually seeing her in Manchester a week after the festival and have already seen her on this tour but there is no doubt I am obsessed and am convinced she's going to do something magical at Glastonbury. Again The Cure are a greatest hits band for me but some of those hits I really love and I've known and loved those hits for my whole life. I just wonder if they'll be as good a live act as Janelle and if I do go with them whether I'll watch Janelle on tv later and go WHY!!!!

Have seen This Is The Kit and they are great but never seen Fat White Family and really like their new album. 

I realise these are absolutely first world problems I'm having but I reckon I'll be flipping coins on the farm.

Useless top of the page, let me balance it out with another rec: Steam Down.

Not many videos going of them but its one of London's best jazz/soul/Afrofuturist astral travelling nights. Will be pure energy up on The Park with the right crowd and weather. Could be a top 5 "give it a go, come away dazzled" pick.

In short: yer screwed!!! ;) 

I wouldn't even bother thinking about each of them until the day...and even then maybe just before...and decide depending on where you are geographically, meteorologically, spiritually and how - if that's your thing - inebriated you are!
