Agreed I suppose that is a festival in a way that it is a festival however limited & Creamfields covering themselves.

Is Big Weekend still free?

If it wasn’t for the random info that he was doing Saturday vs Macca a few weeks ago I’d agree with you but..... that was said and then weeks later there’s this random dance festival exclusive.  I’d be amazed if he’s not playing now

Finsbury Park show as an outside idea. Think Big Weekend is nailed on though honestly not really any other fests for him except Glasto.

 

The only other fest that I would see him play would be Global Gathering that doesn’t exist anymore & that is quite the dance festival. Any London one dayers tend to be dancey or hip hop.

Subbing Iron Maiden at Download it is. They are on about the same time.

thanks.

if she had said "we’ve got kind of Pyramid headliner level headliners on the Other Stage next year" , then there'd be no doubt about getting enormous acts on the Other stage.

but she didn't, so "Pyramid level" is open to interpretation about their size/appeal, and not necessarily Pyramid headliner size.

PSB are certainly not Pyramid headliners, but they're certainly mainstream and well-known enough to play the Pyramid.

She had to of meant they were huge acts because it would have made no sense to have said anything at all, if it was that interpretation we could have Bjorn again and Craig David headlining the other.

Hopefully not to long until we all know a bit more :)

They won't be playing big weekend if they're playing an outdoor show an hour away 4 days later

Erm not sure. Big weekend can usually rope in acts doing other shows because you can’t really buy tickets to big weekend. If Calvin wants to do it he will be there.

I agree Calvin Harris will be there, but don't think The Killers will be which was what i was on about. Too much was made of the obscurity of them picking to play Falkirk stadium, there's gigs there every year, its a mid-sized outdoor venue. Perfectly reasonable for that to be their only Scottish show

Big Weekend doesn’t figure in any of this. It’s not a real festival. ‘Exclusives’ play it all the time.

Peggy Gou did her own Finsbury Park show last year so I’d say Calvin definitely could.

Not a 40k cap show, surely?

Yeah okay I understand.

I think Big Weekend is hard to predict because of this very reason dental explained brilliantly.

For some reason it’s exempt from exclusivity contracts and the reason why is probably because the average joe can’t buy tickets and go. A contractual loophole.

I've got it in my head now that Massive Attack will do Other Sunday night up against Swift, based on absolutely nothing other than wanting to see it happen

Haha not yet. Peggy Gou the brand will play her music to anyone that wants to hear it apparently and doesn’t give a fuck. Even if it means playing for Saudi Arabia. That’s crossing a line for me. Fuck her.

I started off being interested in her but she's already gone way too far in terms of marketing and brand pushing and it's really unattractive.  She really does believe her own hype.  Way too far up her own trumpet for me.

The quote is literally  ' we've  got kind of pyramid level headliners for the other stage this year' which is why people started speculating the 1975.

All is it is acts that play venues etc that could be classed as a headliners but wouldn't do so at Glastonbury....that's about as much as it's worth looking into it

Still think PSB/Calvin Harris/Foals is where the smartest money remains but The Strokes have jumped ahead of the majority of the rest as most likely outsider.

The thought of the crowd at a Peggy Gou show in London makes me feel a bit sick. That’s coming from someone who stays here also. 
 

That Saudi festival was an interesting one, some other big names played that I really wouldn’t have expected - Kerri Chandler, Danny Tenaglia, Cassy and a few others.

Kerri Chandler did? Didn’t see that! With Peace, Love, Admiration and blood money.

What’s happened with The Strokes? Do they hate money now?

My mate from work went to her printworks show in November and said the crowd was pretty awful, I think she can attract a certain type of clientele now.

The Strokes are not headlining every single festival they play then taking a slot on the Other Stage for a fee that is probably peanuts compared to what they get everywhere else they're booked for. Not happening

Yep. I wouldn't mind that trio (Calvin Harris it's a huge meh though but if it's clashing with Macca it's one problem less) but if the alternatives are The Strokes, The National or Massive Attack I wouldn't be bothered for any swap.

As everyone was arguing over semantics yesterday I would posit that The Strokes certainly do fit the “Pyramid level” billing.
