They obviously have contacts who know who is on the festival’s wish list for the year and who they are speaking to. Until the contracts are signed, sealed and announced there will always be a pinch of salt required.

Of course.  But i'd say that's the case with any outlet.

All bases covered there

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

Amazing for Dua if she is headlining the OS (she's for sure a future Pyramid headliner), but selfishly gutted that she's not subbing! 

Yep feeling the same. Gutted that in a day it seems like info confirms clashes with Charli and Dua Lipa, but good slots for both of them and great bookings.

I remember finding it strange that Stormzy didn’t play the pyramid until the year he headlined. In 2017 he easily could have taken a pretty massive pyramid slot, but he was placed on the other stage.

Maybe they have indeed got their eyes on Dua headlining in the future, and it would be good to hold off her pyramid debut until the time.

I think this info that Calvin isn’t performing as Calvin Harris could be right. I heard he was playing Pangea but nothing as to whether it meant he was only doing one set.

Yeah he said in a interview with Annie mac a few weeks back all of his shows won’t be under Calvin Harris ( didn’t even realise it wasn’t even his real name, it was just a stage name) his new project is called Love Regenerator and he would be doing shows under that name

He’s billed at Coachella as Calvin Harris though?

Rudimental?

I guess so, they are probably the closest to it. I think it’s usually because bona fide pop acts are usually acts of the pyramid just because of their mass appeal.

They may not get played much on Radio 1 these days, but the Pet Shop Boys were very much a bona fide Radio 1 / Smash Hits - style pop band.

Not when they headlined though - I think that’s what Matt’s getting at.

Bingo. Acts that are getting heavy radio 1 rotation and chart success at the time of playing. Rudimental kinda fit into that category but I feel like they can be seen as a similar sort of booking as Chase and Status.

Christine & The Queens was the closest thing I could get to Dua Lipa in my mind when I thought about the same thing yesterday.

Rudimental and Major Lazer are more in line with The Prodigy in terms of bombast and multiple blokes on stage. Jake Bugg, well, he’s just a bad troubadour and Glasto has had plenty of that. Pet Shop Boys are more of a heritage booking a la New Order, poppy as they are.

But C&TQ is contemporary, theatrical, uplifting pop with flair. They might not sound alike but the nearest analogue to Dua Lipa imo in terms of recent Big Pop on the Other, alongside the Lorde sub in 2017.
