All bases covered there

He won’t be headlining Sunday, tends to take the day off...

With Calvin apparently out for Other stage headliner, who are the ones that are candidates now?

I think about Biffy Clyro, Royal Blood (ruled out?), Foals (for Sunday only), Mumford and Sons, Tyler the Creator (think is big enough to do it at this point) The Strokes, The National, RATM (just a dream for that gap but unrealistic)?

The Prodigy? :D

Mumfords sliding from Pyramid to Other in 7 years seems implausible.

That’s where they’re at. But it’s such a glaring plunge, would they even bother?

In usual circumstances, yes.  But as friends of the Festival, it surely wouldn't be out of the question for the 50th - especially given Emily's comments about the size of the Other Stage headliners.

They didn’t get close to selling out APE last year, cheap tickets all over the shop.

Admittedly they did also play an arena tour last year, but I’m not sure how that sold.

If they're ready, and have managed to get a Keith-free live show together, they'd be perfect.  No signs they have due to lack of any other activity, but it's entirely plausible Liam is working on something just for Glastonbury as a tribute to Keith.  Would absolutely love to see something along these lines with guest vocalists... John Lydon doing Firestarter would be mind blowing.

Right. Mumford on the Other seems like such a regression. Technically Pyramid level (once) but so badly dated as an early 2010s thing.

Depends how they look at it.

Other acts have moved down the line-up further and faster than that in the past, albeit it's been a while since a Pyramid Headliner has done so.

At the end of the day, any line-up is relative. I don't think it's a huge disgrace to be on the second stage against a huge megastar like Paul McCartney or Taylor Swift.

I have very little interest in Swifty, but if Billy Banjo and the lads are the alternative I’ll be at the Pymild with bells on.

Calvin and Royal Blood ruled out (maybe)? Can someone please update me on these developments?

Lad I know who told me about Royal Blood playing This Is Tomorrow is still certain of them playing Glastonbury, when I pushed him he did say he believed it was heading the other. That was a few weeks ago though so they could easily have moved them down etc if they needed to move it around.

Not sure about Royal Blood, but the news on Calvin is that he's doing Arcadia. Some posters thought that ruled him out of the Other, but consensus since is it actually makes him more likely and it'll be a full set on the Other and a dj set on the crane.

Not that anyone really knows, but any idea what time Calvin would likely be on at Arcadia? Would we be thinking aligned with the headliners or more of a 1am set?

Hmmmm I think now he's on Arcadia that might change things. If he was doing a second set somewhere smaller it would make sense, but having an act on Arcadia and Other? 

Fully prepared to be hit with a bunch of times where this has happened, but it seems like overkill to me

What I got, from a direct source, was it was a big 'get' for Pangea and this source had not heard of an Other booking to go alongside it.

Make your own conclusions (and I see most people have lol)

Forgot Pet Shop Boys here. But somehow I have the feeling they will be headliner a different stage. Of course this is with 0% info.

trying to word this the best way

I didn’t hear that he was playing Pangea and not Other stage... but it could mean that it is the case.

We have no idea with pyramid level other headliners. I feel confident now that Biffy Clyro and Pet Shop Boys are two of them, but then again Royal Blood, Biffy Clyro, Pet Shop Boys doesn’t really look right. I think Royal Blood and Biffy are too similar.
