Initial thought was Ozzy, but that seems incredibly unlikely 

Yeah that was my thought. Got a new album due next year, but was his Download appearance not billed as his last festival date? (May have that wrong, and tbf it’s not like those claims mean much most of the time).

I would of thought he'd be too much of a risky booking because of all of his cancelled dates due to poor health.

KoRn came to mind (children of the corn) but they probably aren't big enough, maybe AC/DC or Slipknot?

He's just rearranged a bunch of postponed UK dates to late next year - which is assumed would rule him out as it'd be a bit odd to reschedule a London gig to October then announce another show for an earlier date. 

He's in the US at the time of BST anyway so its defo not him.

Ol' Swifty is the epitome of a BST headliner, but what would it mean for the Glastonbury rumours? 

I think its highly likely she will play, all seems to fit.

Did Billie Ellish not get accused of that earlier in the year? I seem to remember some uproar.

Also, who is/are Billie Ellish please?

 

17-year-old superstar. Though I doubt she's doing this given she's playing arenas in July, including 2 nights at the O2.

Can't lie - I don't recall hearing any of her music. But I know there's a fair bit of crossover. I did enjoy reading an interview with Billie Joe Armstrong from Green Day the two did for Rolling Stone. Though I bet it must make BJA feel old that he's been worshipped by a top 10-selling star who was 3 when American Idiot came out.

Once, it was plausible for somebody to do both. Think Springsteen, Blur and a few others have. Swift strikes me as the kind of act big enough to do so.

i've just been told - 3rd hand (so it might be wrong, but probably isn't) - that the first announcement is in about 2 weeks.

Ariana Grande was also mentioned as possibly one of the acts, tho I wouldn't put too much faith in that one.

Ariana Grande said she wasn't touring next year I think? 

Any word on the others? And who on earth @Brave Sir Robin's "occult" clue could be referring to?! ?

nope, tho Taylor Swift seems likely as she did it a few years ago.

With pearl jams tour dates looking to drop around an early werchter announcement and their usual early december rush to renew fan club subscriptions I'm gonna go with pearl jam for this.

That would make sense for an end of month pay day sale just in time for Christmas presents.

Clearly I missed the news of the tour extension.

Depends if they have a new album out. Has to be a possibility though given they haven't done a Hyde Park show in years.

The band announced a new album for 2020 if I'm correct. Seems they're on tour in June (announced at Hellfest and Werchter), they could play there if Glastonbury don't book them again. Still watching the DVD of their Hyde Park show sometimes: would be sick to see them play there again!

As a Foo Foghters fan, they're Reading headline set wasn't as good as their London show last year because it was pretty much exactly the same, even the pandering in between songs. So yes.

But the Reading set wins because of the Rick Astley surprise.

I was at the London show and I really enjoyed it. I also saw them at Glasto. They are a band I’ve enjoyed every time I’ve seen them but it really feels like they are in the UK every summer at this point.

This decade, the only times they've not played UK shows are 2010, 2013 and 2016. So they've certainly had their fill of UK dates.

I've only been to the 2 runs in Milton Keynes and I have enjoyed both of them, but I do think they need a bit more variety to their live shows.

I'm a big Foo Fighters fan, but I agree. Their main problem is that they tend to have really good singles and then only tend to play the singles live.

With an ever growing list, none of the previous hits ever get cut or swapped, so you just end up with the same 15 songs plus the latest 4 or 5. The next tour, two of those will be added as staples, etc. Most of the songs from the previous album are never heard again.

It's a shame as I think they have some great album tracks. Most of Echoes, Silence, Patience & Grace has never been played live.

I don't think BST is that great for rock gigs due to the whole golden circle thing blocking us poor people from getting closer to the bands. I've seen Roger Waters and Stevie Wonder there in previous years who I thought were both great but can't see it working as a venue for someone like Pearl Jam or Foo Fighters where I'd want to be close to the action
