2021 Headliners

Whilst I get that argument I think there’s an element we’re forgetting - Emily said they were already talking to some acts about 2021 way before COVID. Gorillaz seemed to announce a series of 2021 dates in a flurry mid-pandemic, which makes me think they always planned to do a 2021 festival tour.

My guess is that they were already pencilled in for Glasto prior to COVID. So it’s putting them into the right slot/a good slot that becomes vacant.

Easy to shift the headliners around to fit what’s needed if Dua is moved.

for instance I’d suggest moving Fatboy opposite Macca.  Then either PSB or Gorrilaz (if booked) opposite Kendrick and Dua

I think they’ll go for a younger act to fill any vacant OS slot left by Dua if that’s what happens, and I don’t see it being Gorillaz for that reason. Something like Disclosure makes far more sense, and I’m sure there are a ton of other options, possibly even another bump up from the 2020 lineup.

Royal Blood and Twenty One Pilots are both around.

I’m not sure if they’re big enough to headline Other but maybe Wolf Alice? We did hear that they were offered that slot in 2019 and they would fit with promoting women in headline slots which they did seem to be aiming for across the main stages this year.

They’ve dropped off the radar a little. Played Pilton Party in 2019 which is pretty much a confirmation for the following year but were conspicuously absent from the poster. They’ve been meant to be having an album ready for over a year now too (although COVID may have banjaxed that).

If they get their next album out by Spring then there’s no reason they couldn’t. Are they any smaller than Alt-J for instance?

🚨 Ken in the Rock Werchter thread says that they are talking and close to signing a huge headliner. 🚨

The clue he gave was ‘stadium sized’.
 

People think this is someone who has never played RW before.

Was that not in relation to an act System of a Down fans would like?

More worryingly, people in the Rock Werchter thread saying Muse are being announced for a festival in France the weekend after Glastonbury.

OK OK, let's just calm down a little.

We need a list of who this could be. Is it someone who doesn't already have shows announced for next year?

Muse played last year tho. Ken seems to hyping this up though so I doubt it will be a standard RW band.

Results of the twitter poll btw

Macca started off with 60% lead which gradually went down as TS got more votes.

Kendrick stayed throughout within the 18-22% region.

I refuse to believe there’s a stadium band out there that is a soad alternative. I think he’s talking about two different bookings.

Meh. They already played Pyramid last album and I like acts going from stage to stage.

I agree but I think Royal Blood would be good for the Sunday pyramid sub slot. If not this year but another year. 

They do like to put a ‘band’ in that slot. Vampire Weekend, Biffy Clyro, The Black Keys etc.

Hardest slot to pull off at the whole festival I reckon.

No reason why not but I don’t think that is by design but just because most subs - and acts in general - are bands.
