Which stage will Elbow be on?

Recommended Posts

With a new album out, their close links with Emily and not having played since 2016 it’s surely a given that Garvey’s Gang will be there in 2020...but on which stage? Park last time and Pyramid before that, so what do we reckon - Other or West Holts? Gotta be outside for sure.

They played in the park 2017. Was a secret gig though. 

Sorry, got my years wrong. That was what I was referring to when I said they played Park

Hard one to call. They're playing smaller venues these days but have said they'd rather play multiple dates in smaller venues than the odd one in arenas. 

During their Park set Guy said it was his favourite stage at the festival so maybe they'd crop up there as headliners but at the same time, they could easily sub The Pyramid again.

I don't see them headlining any stage personally but then that's a biased / hopeful opinion based on the enjoyment i've had at their previous glasto slots whilst the sun is setting :lol:

It's a fair point. It was their 2011 Pyramid set that converted me into a fan. Saw them last night at one of the album launch shows, glorious.

Was discussing this last night after the intimate Manchester album launch gig - Park was, and will remain, perfect for them. I don't even see them ever headlining a main stage - I think they, and their fans, would be more than happy for a sunset Park gig again.  That's my hope, anyway.

They will be about 3 down on the Pyramid or 2nd down on Other stage I would guess.

They will definitely be there though I think its a given. They bloody love the place! 

I would prefer another 6 or 7pm slot on the park stage personally... you never know.

I would agree. Probably on before Biffy subs Elton. You’d love that😉

I'd happily watch Elbow and have made no secret of my love to see Reg headlining so yes I would love to see it.

I'll just go somewhere else while Biffy are on.

The wonder that is Glastonbury. There’s always an alternative. In fact sometimes too many!

I think they love the festival enough that they will happily slot in wherever. I suspect how their latest album lands could be deciding factor.

.. actually third down on Sunday might be a good shout for them, Just after Diana Ross so will get a decent crowd. Cant really see them subbing the Pyramid again
