Lucy spraggan played the Avalon stage last year. Think she was X factor 

My friend was her manager. Used his earnings to pay for teacher training & thus had to turn down a free ticket to Glasto.

Giving up a free ticket? Now that really shows commitment to the education system! Lucy was really good, Avalon was busy and enjoyed her performance.

She was ‘found’ on Youtube, I think he got a pay off to allow her to be on the show or certainly made a bit of money off it, bought a brand new Focus ST in cash which we immediately wrapped in clingfilm. Geography teacher, gave me great advice during my training too. Works in a really small school so no chance he could get time off, they are still friends.

He loves gigs but doesn’t really do festivals other than Leeds our old local one, proper emo type with a fringe so Glasto isn’t on his radar.

There’s a few stories about him being spotted by students!

This has probably been mentioned but Suede are touring, so far only dotted around and in various countries.

I saw them last year at Bilbao BBK and they were excellent live i was really surprised how good they were actually.

I really hope we get Robyn but if we get her I see her headlining a stage which puts me in a right fucking predicament.

Apparently Brett (or one of them) was asked in an interview not that long ago and he denied it. I'll try finding it later if I can be bothered

John Peel stage? Done that before. 

As for predicaments, I’m already resigned myself to the fact that there will be clashes everywhere. And I wouldn’t have it any other way!

She didn't headline, but she did storm offstage due to sound issues, so that's one reason she might not be back.

Robyn did?

She was awesome at Wilderness. Friends thought it was crap.

Taking my daughter to the Peterborough show the day after getting back from the farm. That’s how rock n roll I am.

As reported on Efests, Travis are active playing in Edinburgh 20th August, they headlined in 2000? 

Any chance of a slot this year? Obviously not headlining, i caught them on the telly playing Hogmany and i was quite impressed with their live performance.

I’m sure a space on the bill can be found for them somewhere.

They could pretty much go anywhere, opening the Other, early Pyramid, evening John Peel, headline Avalon wherever there is space.

They did release their glasto performance from 99 as a live album last year and didnt play the fest. Makes sense to have them there for the 50th. And have only done a small amount of shows for The Man Who which also turned 20.

I‘be wondered before if they could have a few former headliners dotted around the lineup. The likes of Travis, Ash, Skunk Anansie, etc...

Booking Skunk Anansie would be very cool. Sign me up for that.

Having failed to get a ticket for their tour last year, absolutely on board with it.

Didn’t Emily elude to a something like this. I’m trying to find the quote.

I think it would be great. Didn’t Ash headline a smaller stage a few years ago? I don’t know whether I’m imagining things.
