Never understood the dislike to them, especially on here? Suppose everyone has their own taste...but am I missing something?

Suppose they’re just predominantly more a ‘young persons’ act and this forum skews to being slightly older. I enjoy them for what it’s worth.

Feel like I may get some stick for bringing them up again but were 21P ever ruled out? They headline most festivals they play so can see why Emily would say they are pyramid level, and they have a date in Ireland the week of the festival which I know of

Twenty One Pilots/Calvin Harris/Biffy

Would definitely qualify 'Pyramid headliner' acts. One big enough to headline Reading etc but just the wrong genre fit for the festival, probably the biggest commercial DJ in the UK and a rock band who almost made it to Pyramid headline status but has had a long standing successful career regardless.

Source? 

It was half way down an article written by the sun, which i know isnt all that trustworthy, but they said it was part of Emily's continuing plans for a better gender split. Sziget is having her headline this year amongst other pre pyramid level headliners so that ticks that box for emily saying other other stage headliners would be massive.

DUA Lipa is to headline The Other Stage at ­Glastonbury this year, I can reveal.

My sources say Dua, who releases her second album Future Nostalgia in April, has just been signed for the Worthy Farm gig.

And they say the decision to have her top the bill on The Other Stage was made by co-organiser Emily Eavis in a bid to increase the number of female headliners.

One said: “There was definitely an argument to say Dua should have been on the Pyramid Stage, but Emily wanted to have her on board as a headliner.

“She wants male and female artists to be equally prominent on the festival’s bill this year.

“Dua’s fans will be thrilled and she’s looking forward to putting on a show to remember.”

The Sun has a frustratingly good track record of getting Glastonbury related stuff right actually...

I’m going to say Pet Shop Boys, Dua Lipa, Royal Blood/Foals.

S*n might be dogshite but that’s a pretty specific prediction. Even gives a caveat for “well, you might think Pyramid but they needed a woman topping the Other bill for optics and Dua has earned a key slot” which scans as correct. I’m inclined to believe it.
