2021 Headliners

Recommended Posts

I’ve stretched this in the 2021 predictions thread but if we are losing most of our top line...

1975, Paul McCartney, Arctic Monkeys as headliners. Diana returning for legends.

Dave, Lizzo, Gerry Cinnamon as subs. (In that order)

Gorlliaz, Dua Lipa, Pet Shop Boys other headliners (with Fatboy bumped down to other sub).

I think this would be a good salvage of what is lost with 2020. It’s not that impossible either.

Really don’t see the headliner trio looking like that - from the most varied trio the festival has had to a bunch of lads and a bunch of guitars. Maybe one of Taylor or Kendrick replaced by a standard band, but not both.

If Taylor is out, they need to get Gaga on the blower ASAP and offer her whatever she wants.

2014 was the most varied IMO.

Really? A rock band, a metal band and an indie rock band?

Florence, Kanye and The Who springs to mind immediately.

I suppose in terms of the rock spectrum it was a good range. Kasabian have enough appeal to the "mainstream normie" crowd too.

I still think Metallica is the most ballsy choice for a headliner that Glastonbury have booked.

No way. 

Jay Z takes that for sure. 

Might not seem it now because we’ve had various rap and pop stars since, but at the time it was a huge booking that caused uproar.

Posh guitars, loud guitars and lad guitars.

Did their 50/50 gender split for festivals rule come out after they were announced for this year? If so maybe they would reconsider rolling over if BM didn't have that equality in 2021.

Why the fuck has Lady Gaga not headlined Glastonbury?

Because she hasn’t been booked to headline.

Because an agreement has never been brokered between the festival and her representatives to headline Glastonbury festival.

Kendrick not on the Bilbao bbk 2021 line up, depsite being booked for 2020. Looking less and less likely by the day that he'll be at Glastonbury

Mmmm. Not looking too promising. Glastonbury could still be a one off, but for some reason I don't find it likely Kendrick would do that?
