To be fair, it still baffles me to this day that even in 2014 someone thought Jake Bugg would be big enough to headline the Other especially above both Manics & Pixies 

In mitigation I think the story went that he was a last minute bump up after Metallica were moved up to the Pyramid. Having Metallica and Pixies headline the two biggest stages wouldn’t have made much sense.

They haven't really done that many shows since they reunited, have they? I'm surprised they haven't even done their own Manchester show yet; they supported Noel G but I don't think that really counts

To be honest their comeback has been a bit of a wet fart. It doesn’t seem to have gained much in the way of traction or interest.

a load of mid-sized festivals, and some support slots. bizarre way to make a comeback really.

I'd imagine there'd have been a lot more interest if it was their own gigs/tour. winter/spring was the perfect time to be doing it too.

I’d completely forgotten Doves had started playing live again tbh. Suppose they want to save the big festivals/shows for when they’ve got new material ready, but any amount of hype they might have had behind them has well and truly gone and I can’t really see a new album doing much to pick that back up.

A few months ago Emily posted an Instagram story at a doves show. Of course she can she whoever she wants without it being linked to the fest but one has to wonder... 

 

vampire weekend also have a glasto shaped hole in the European end of their tour, and have mentioned a couple times about Glastonbury being the greatest festival in the world...

VW subbed last year. I’d be gobsmacked if they were back again.

He was subheadlining at Reading & Leeds and at T in the Park in the same year. The rumours of him being bumped up from another slot or stage are likely unfounded.

True. On the time crisis podcast though Ezra had said about wanting to do more morning shows and making that a thing. They did the secret park set at glasto in AM last year too
