Other Stage 2020

There was a part of me that thought it was cool because it would mean that headline sized bands would be doing the fest a favour and stepping down a slot to play the 50th. However, it seems that on further reflection it would be a pretty silly move for a band genuinely trying to establish themselves as U.K. festival headliners.

A secret set would probably work better career wise.

While I completely agree, I think a band saying they headlined the 2nd biggest stage at the biggest UK festivals 50th aniversary is still really cool.

I never get the 'they headlined the other so they can't do the pyramid' But there's proof to this that it doesn't happen a lot.

I'm just bored of the 'well killers did a secret set and then headlined' and then we had months of discussion around Foals doing a secret set and headlining and now it looks like the same will happen with the 1975. Just because it happened once, doesn't mean it should or will happen every year.

I'd disagree with that too, many signs point towards a 1975 secret set. Pet Shop Boys against Kendrick I can see.

To be honest though dude I'd say she's about as nailed on to be on the Pyramid as Liam was to headline Reading.

That’s a pretty shit clash I think. Fair enough genres aren’t that similar but I’d be gutted about it.

West End Girls kind of has rapping at the start haha.

Coming from a different direction. The 1975 could well still be touring in 2021 and have a good shot at headlining then considering there doesn’t seem to be (that) much competition. 
 

I honestly think the fact it’s the 50th anniversary fucked their chances. There is way too much competition this year for them to get the headlining slot they deserve. Right band with the wrong plan (or whatever).

We Didn’t Start The Fire and It’s The End Of The World As We Know It are both rap songs, pass it on

I've predicted for them to headline in 21' if they don't play the Other this year, so I do agree. I just don't see them not playing this year, as well as Emilys comment about 'pyramid sized other headliners' With everyone we're talking about in the run up to it, Pet Shop Boys, Dua, NGHFB, Calvin Harris now. The only one I see being in that level is 1975.

Magnificent Seven by The Clash also. To be fair I think they were hanging around The Bronx then so lends some authenticity to it.

I genuinely don’t see how Dua Lipa is big enough to headline other.

I'm genuinely baffled, sells more tickets than most Other stage headliners and even subs that have been bigger. I doubt there is many bar Liam that have subbed and sold more.

Going to stick with what I said a couple days ago, the fact Calvin Harris isn’t headlining Coachella, I think he could be a serious possibility, fits in with what Emily said about pyramid sized and as other have said here, would split against macca.

Probably wont matter because Calvin will likely close out the night at Coachella after RATM. So he still gets to play last regardless of his billing. Nothing new with that anyway. Its not as if this hasnt happened before. Beck was a headliner in 99 and when he came back in 2014 he was a sub.

At some point recently, the consensus changed to he's subbing Macca. Not sure why though - can anyone tell us if there was solid info?

3rd or 4th down Pyramid in a longer than usual 'special guest' type slot. They were never going to be a traditional sub, it'll be more like the Legend/"teatime" slot but a day earlier I think.

Someone who had info (I think from one of Noel’s band) that Noel definitely wasn’t playing last year has heard that he’s subbing on the Saturday, so it seems pretty likely.

Thought the ‘Noel’s subbing’ crew had just gotten louder lately - didn’t realise there was anything to it. 

Well, the Oasis tunes will be fun much like they were with Liam last year, although the Aerosmith in to McCartney dream is sorely missed.

On the other hand, if it's Aerosmith -> Noel -> Macca, you've got a nice break to get some food, booze and have a piss before Macca starts
