Yep, and even if the licence didn't specifically state which stages can open when, there's also the noise limits (as measured at various off-site locations including Pilton Village) which are pretty severe on Wednesday and Thursday - even running the Pyramid at half power would massively breach them.

So no chance of a Thursday set happening this or any year unless the council (and therefore, the locals) agree to it after a licence amendment is put in. Which will never happen.

there is a provision for it within the licence 

nope - if you look thru in more detail, you'll find the major stages are dealt with separately.

edit: as someone has already pointed out.

I think it's very unlikely to happen. From my experience sitting-in on licence hearings the council are very resistant to expanding the disruption for locals.

Having said that, an exception for something big like a 50th anniversary might get past them, but I still think it's very unlikely.

as they'd need to book acts, they'd need to get the OK from the council before they booked the acts.

Which very probably means it's not going to happen, as the application would need to be made by around now. As it's a public thing and no one is aware of application, it can't have happened.

How strict are they with the curfew? If a band stops playing at 11:32pm on the Sunday on the Pyramid, would the festival be fined or would the council just give them a slap on the wrist?

Don't know, but it would start a moaning war on eFests that's for sure 😋

the council would be likely to act, because the council is likely to have locals on their backs complaining about the 2 minutes extra noise.

They got fined £3,000 when Springsteen went 9 minutes over, and I think it was said at the time that if it happened again it'd be more.

I think you're massively underestimating Aerosmith. No chance they were a back-up, they're a mammoth booking. Others are too by talking about Aerosmith as a sub. There's no way they're doing anything except a special guest slot with an extended set length. Doesn't need a fancy name because it's a global juggernaut of a band playing in the afternoon but will get one anyway, formally or informally. They're not gonna book a band more famous than many headliners (including one playing this festival - yes, less relevant currently obviously) and have them simply as a back-up to the legend (who I'd bet they'll get a way bigger crowd than btw) or playing the same slot in terms of stature as the likes of the likes of xx, The National and Vampire Weekend. 

Wait you’ve misinterpreted what I’ve said.

if they failed to get Diana in the Sunday slot they might have had Aerosmith in the back of their mind to play at that point if it didn’t pan out.

Not that Aerosmith are a replacement booking.

To be fair, they should have been fined for the 6* hours he played before the curfew.

 

* It felt like 6 hours.

Was there a special consideration when they aired the England vs. Slovenia match on the Pyramid? That was a Wednesday.

And christ... 10 years ago!

The NME article about Emily being godlike genius says full lineups out in March, but who knows if this is based on solid info or just the NME guessing

Likely that she will announce the third headliner at the god like genius event? 

it's not impossible, tho announcements at events are not-the-norm rather than the norm.
