2020 Stage Predictions: What do we know? Do we know things?? Let’s find out!

He was booked sixth down John Peel on the Friday this year, but people were expecting that to be rammed based on how his profile was taking off.

Would expect him to have a much bigger slot this year having now that he has had a number one album and lots more airplay. Thinking third or fourth down Other.

OK I wrote what I meant horribly so Im gonna start again. I'm probably way off base but my assumption on what has likely happened is something like this.

I assume Sam Fender was booked pretty much straight away after he cancelled this year on a kind of "i'm too ill to play this year so I'll be back next year to make up for it" basis. At that point he was probably bumped up to low/mid other stage for next year as I agree, JP would have been very busy. However, since then he's taken off even more, probably 3rd/4th down other. I have no idea how flexible the timetable is (obviously slightly flexible as seen in the Billie Eilish move) but I wouldnt be suprised to see him stuck in mid other like Capaldi was this year (he was 5th down when he could have probably been 2nd/3rd that day).

Can we assume the same for Snow Patrol getting another shot as they had to cancel last minute similar to sam fender? They were later afternoon on Other, so maybe the same slot again or even earlier  In the day on Pyramid?

Slightly different as Sam Fenders album just came out whereas the Snow Patrol album is already over a year old, not sure if they'll still be touring (Especially as some bandmembers have side projects that they may want to focus on). Wouldnt be suprised to see them turn up, but not as nailed as Fender is imo

They just released an ep and have a  tour in the winter, so theyre active at least. I just think that after not being there since their last release that its justified to have another go because of the circumstance.

Dya not think Wolf Alice might headline the Other Stage, given that they were supposedly asked to do it this year, played Pilton Party and will have likely released their third album by then?

Dunno if I see Bon Iver subbing the Pyramid - just seems like Other Stage headliner is their obvious slot and can't see why they'd not see that as a better option.

Not sure I see RTJ going from 4th Pyramid to 4th Other, think they'll get a slightly better slot than that.

Wolf Alice - no. They were offered it in a dry year for Other headliners, I can’t see it being a standing offer.

Bon Iver - people say that about loads of acts. The National was one, Nick Cave another, etc. They could probably do either but sometimes it’s gotta be the Pyramid.

RTJ - good shout, forgot about them being that high. I’d maybe shuffle someone around and have them second/third from top of Other instead.

Metallica secret set? It is the kind of thing they might do, but only if they are local. I have been suggesting a Euro festival summer for them next year with Werchter, MadCool & NosAlive and hopefully headlining IOW. Still think JP would be fantastically rammed for them, but I guess they're no bigger than the Killers

Wolf Alice are great but couldn't headline Other. Would place their billing to be the same as the likes of Two Door Cinema Club and Courteeners who subbed this year.

I'm not so sure. Normally the 'reward' for playing Pilton Party is getting a better slot than you might otherwise get

Fair point. Although they were placed one slot below Two Door at Y Not this year (and maybe a couple of other festivals? Could be an anomaly), so with that in mind, 2nd to last on Other could be seen as a small bump. Would be perfect as the sun starts to go down.

so where do we reckon Noel Gallagher is going to be playing? Cos I'm pretty sure he's going to be playing.

Macca's sub seems the obvious answer, that or Other headliner opposite Swifty.

Pyramid sub like his brother, doubt he would accept less and isn’t going to headline.

He's going to sub the Pyramid on Saturday night and play for one minute longer than his brother did.

You are such a crafty bugger, just happening to bring up Noel 35 minutes before some announcement......

Noel set to announce some tour with a Glasto hole at 4pm?

Yea, subbing Macca would be ideal tbh. Saw Noel at Mad Cool and he was actually a load of fun.
