I really hope we’re well off with this. This isn’t a bad lineup guess by any means...I just love me some big unexpected surprises for us all. If they can’t pull off a big WTF for the 50th...when can they?

I think there will be a few surprises but for real. Taylor, McCartney, Kendrick, Diana Ross and Aerosmith as a top 5 is a dream for any festival.

The lineup page has been like that for a while now. Great spot about the twitter handle though. Usually changes in the socials happen when something is at foot!

 

To wet everyone’s appetite, since there is a lot of traffic on this thread I’d share my latest “fake” poster that has kept up to date with the latest rumours.

I’ve tried to make an edition which squeezes the three pyramid headliners + Diana Ross + Aerosmith on the top line as I imagine the final poster will bill these five acts as headliners just like the 2019 did with Kylie and Janet.

I also wanted paid attention to which artists managers will probably want their acts billed high up on the poster. For example, Tyler, Alicia Keys, Gwen Stefani, Camila etc.

I have also analysed posters from other festivals across the world this year and looked at who is typically asking for a high billing. 
 

I really want to continue working on this the closer we get to the actual drop and do a comparison at the end with how much we got right and how much we were wrong with. Coachella forums/reddit do this every year and I’d love if we did it too!

This is way too strong I reckon. Lots of nice stuff in here though.

Also not only have you split Nubya Garcia's name in two but you've also spent her first name wrong.

And there's no way Fatboy Slim is playing two years in a row

Sure...I’m just staying hopeful that when the poster does drop - there’s at least one totally unexpected huge name on there, rather than just a line up that confirms our existing assumptions.

I'm hopeful! Maybe not for Rage (although that is obviously the dream) but for something that slipped through the radar. Like a Katie Perry but, you know, good...

We can't have worked it all out, surely? It seems like it's been too easy this year

Is there a reason behind this?

Well where would they play? They are 100% headliners at any festival they turn up to and they are headlining R&L. 
 

Also they’ve announced their world tour dates and it would make no sense to come over to Europe just for Glastonbury, the go back to the states.

If they were playing Glasto they would have announced with their world tour drop, as they pretty much self confirmed for all of their European festival appearances before the festivals themselves got the chance to announce them.

But Glastonbury doesn’t play to the same rules as other festivals, I’m not saying I think they’ll play but if there’s any festival announcement Rage wouldn’t leave to the specific festival poster, it’d be Glastonbury

Name a band in similar size and scope, with a returning tour, that are headlining Coachella and R&L and have also played Glastonbury in the same year. Because there isn't one.

It’s absurd but I think they’ll be there. As will The National. The line up is going to be stacked

There isn’t mate, but I think if you asked anyone a few months ago no-one would’ve believed Aerosmith would play and not headline

But glasto doesn’t pay them enough to make a solo trip to Europe economically viable

For a band reuniting for money, coming over to Europe for one low-paying non-headline gig would be massively against their interests.

Also they are a headlining band. They have plenty of festivals across the world queuing up to book them as a headliner.
