My excitement levels have dropped massively over the last couple of weeks as I've become less and less convinced it will happen 😔

I’m with you.  In the last month my excitement and optimism for Glastonbury has sunk to a massive low.  I was optimistic when they were taking of thousands of fans being allowed back in stadiums and that was cancelled and we're ready for the winter spike.  Can I see 200,000 in a field, not a chance.

Hate saying it but I suppose it’s my way of dealing with the disappointment

Will festivals and gigs happen next year? Yes I’m almost certain of it.

But will they happen in the same capacity? I don’t think just yet but I imagine mitigation’s will be in place to make it as normal as possible, it’s simply a compromise that organisers and punters will have to make in the meantime. I could see a lot of festivals go for a scaled back approach if they can’t happen normally but I think Glasto could suffer due to its size and complexity

for what it's worth. I've heard Dup Lipa is headlining next year. 

 

If festivals come back

You can like her or not, but Dua Lipa headlining a 50th Anniversary is poor.

How about a 51st?

Fucking fantastic.

Seriously though, a great booking, massive artist, deserves the step up and a woman headliner which will boost her profile massively. Will be there if nothing else is on, maybe not if she's Friday night and Thom Yorke is playing.

If its correct then Dua Lipa // Paul McCartney // Arctic Monkeys

Right now I’m more concerned about whether it goes ahead rather than who’s playing...

She wouldn’t be my first pick. Or second. Or third. Or fourth.... I don’t see it, I don’t see the bump from Other to Pyramid in 12 months.

The future nostalgia album was massive over lockdown, it's only definitely enhanced her standing. 

Was she headlining other? She'd have definitely been one of the biggest crowds on that stage.

Yeah by all accounts she was headlining the Other opposite Macca.

I mean Basement Jaxx headlined the Other Stage in 04 and then the Pyramid in 05 *(admittedly under exceptional circumstances). Prodigy and Stormzy both did that jump over consecutive fests but with a fallow year in between...

I'm not sure its particularlly likely, but it wouldnt be that unprecedented

Not the 50th really - it wasn't the 50th festival, just 50 years since it started. That celebration is gone I think - the BBC thing this year was it

So was Kenny but that's my opinion.

That trio would be great for me.

Oooo that would have been hard. Macca is great and all but his voice isn't the same now and all you really want is the encore. 

I'd have seen what the set lists for the gigs before Glastonbury were but dua on other before sneaking into the back of the pyramid could have been on the cards.

Can’t agree with that, I’ve had the pleasure of seeing Macca a few times, most recently a couple of years ago, and not only is his voice still fine but you are also getting two and a bit hours of non-stop classics. The man is responsible for some of the greatest music ever made, and he brings all of it.

Yeah I'm feeling the same. 

I think I kinda thought it would have all settled down a bit by now and we'd be well on the way to getting back to normal. HA! Foolish I know, but it was nice to think that.

Same here. I can see the cows headlining every stage again next year sadly..

Wouldn't mind having someone I'm not too interested in on the Friday, depends if they rejig the headliners on the other stages. I had a pretty rough Editors v Thom Yorke clash lined up this year, so adding another good option on that Friday would be manic for me.
