I have no interest in Foals, so let's settle this once and for all and start talking about something else.

Many acts aren't big enough to headline Glastonbury yet still do. Gorillaz, Mumford and Sons, The Arctic Monkeys (when they first came out)

But they did headline... so they are big enough?

They absolutely nailed it at Reading.

I think Glastonbury absolutely should be giving these 'borderline' acts a shot.   They have 2 other nights to put on dead certs.   

Glastonbury sell out without the lineup being announced and are in the best position to create new headliners.   Stick them on, widen the headliner pool.

The question should been, are they good enough?

That's the question people often answer even though they were asked "is this band big enough to headline".   The amount of posts you get along the lines of "I don't like that act, how on earth can they headline?" is amazing.

 

Foals could easily headline. The only question is whether the festival will ask them them to.

I agree, give it to Tame Impala. Maybe wait until 2021 though as they only just played.

Maybe the question should be are Foals big enough to headline the 50th anniversary? 
 

In my view no. But there’s no reason why they couldn’t headline eventually.

Still think all the subs in 2016 should have headlined. Maybe keep Coldplay so there's a geniune massive act and I was at LCD Soundsystem anyway.

I do wonder why it always has to be a band that headlines. A huge DJ, such as Carl Cox, would smash a headline slot on the pyramid. Little indie kids 'The Foals' are not fit to lace his boots, musically speaking.

Or would that upset the apple cart, and the Jennifer's not be amused and therefore think twice about buying tickets for next years 'Glasto'?

I thought the idea was that we voted (with our wallets) that we should trust the representatives of GFL to make these decisions?

Yes but Glastonbury’s booking policy reflects on us, because we talk to everyone and anyone in the outside world about Glastonbury until they hate us.
