Your Dream Line Up

In a bad way I suppose, because Portishead are way downtempo for Arcadia. Though I've not been since the days where the firebreathing spider reigned supreme so maybe it's more chilled out nowadays after her removal from power.

It's not... But why not try something different?

Radiohead. Anytime, any place, anywhere. Possibly on the Malibu stage? - For those of a certain age that one...!!

 

Portishead.

KLF.

The bit I don't get with this @blutarsky is curating a lineup that actively fucks you over as curator with the clashes!!!!  Unless your dream lineup also includes a Potter-esque time turner thingy so you can avoid missing anything :lol:

Fair point well made.  Maybe this is why so many of my communiques at work aren't particularly well-received :lol:

As you were Blutarsky, as you were...

Top of my most wanted list is Tom Waits, but I really don't know where he'd play. If he headlined the Pyramid I'd worry he wouldn't go down well with the casuals. A tent would be best for atmosphere but would be stupidly busy. Headline Other just seems a bit meh for such a legend. Despite being the greatest artist going I'm not sure how to make him work at the festival maybe the fantasy should just be another UK tour.

 

I think Emily said Tom Waits is an all time dream booking for her to get on the farm, so if he’s playing, it’ll be closing the Pyramid.

Which makes sense but I'd be seriously concerned that he'd lose a fair amount of the crowd. Definitely one you'd want to get in front of the crush barrier for. Never going to happen so it's probably not worth worrying about.

Every act that ever existed to pick from and your Saturday night headliner is the Foo Fighters?

I was more baffled with Fleetwood Mac on the Park and the Pixies on the Pyramid..... haha

So glad this thread is called "Dream" line up as its a massive dream that Tom Waits would headline the Pyramid stage.... I love his voice but I would hazard a guess most people under a certain age 50? don't even know who he is. Not a chance he is headlining the Pyramid in this or any other universe.

Which takes us back to my original point which is that there isn't a suitable slot at the festival for Mr Waits.

Of course there is... headlining Park stage maybe? or somewhere lower down on another stage? :D I think Park stage would suit him quite well.

As I was indeed! Naturally this lineup means any single act I want to see is going to clash with at least five other acts so black magic is essential.

Personal preference isn’t it... Pixies are one of my all time favourites. I’ve seen them multiple times and they’ve smashed it every time - I’ve literally sing along to every word. Love Fleetwood Mac too, but was imagining them as an unannounced Park stage early set. 

 

RE: Tom Waits, never playing is universally agreed is it?

If it was personal preference I'd put all my real favourites on the smaller stages as then you'd get a more intimate gig and bearing in mind a few years ago The Pixies were about 3 down on The Other Stage headlining The Park would probably be more likely. 

I don't think Emily would ever ok your list it falls so far short of 50/50 gender split.

Someone once suggested Rammstein on Arcadia....if we're going to go different, I'm all for that. Especially with it's new super industrial look!

(Obviously never going to happen though, before I get told off)

Mine was about 60/40 I think. And that includes people like Judy Garland and Joni Mitchell who obviously aren’t going to play. It’s so bloody hard, I don’t envy the bookers at all.

At the moment I genuinely think the best and most exciting music is being made by women I could name about 10 acts that I was amazed weren't playing this year so I don't think it should be that hard. I appreciate at headliner level it might be trickier unless you go into the pop arena as there aren't as many female fronted rock bands but this year you could easily have added Ex:re, Gwenno, Stealing Sheep, Jane Weaver, Hinds, The Staves, Sleeper, Garbage and The Orielles.

I don’t think I would find it that difficult to book a 50/50 lineup if I was aiming for it, but given this is all time favourites and the historical dominance of men in the music industry, this was always going to be massively skewed.

Interesting as if I was doing an all time list mine would probably still be closer to the 50/50 despite the historical dominance of men. If I have the time I might have to do one.

He hardly ever tours and never does festivals. So yeah it's not going to happen.
