according to the Daily Star.

Wouldn’t surprise me at all.  Someone came on with some info a While back saying that Glasto we’re doing something that hadn’t been done before too

I know this idea was shot down quite a bit on here when suggested but I had a feeling they might’ve gone down this route. 

Kacey Musgraves > Diana Ross > Alicia Keys > Lana? > Taylor Swift

Probably Haim in there somewhere as well.

I'm assuming that's bollocks as it's the Star, but if it was that'd be pretty cool. Plus it would make Piers Morgan explode, which would be even better.

I’d rather see a better spread of women across the top echelons of the lineup than just lumping them all into one day.

Both things can happen.

You would but I’d personally think that saying look women can fill a whole day of her biggest stage in the world will get more publicity. 

I also think there’s going to be loads of women filling those top spots anyway (too) this year

Counter it with the lad-iest Saturday the festival has ever seen. McCartney, Noel, Aerosmith, Crowded House, Weller, The Enemy (reforming for the cause).

This is really exciting to think who they might have got.

If they’ve got Billie I’m dead.

Makes it look like it's just a theme day though, rather than normalising something as festivals should be doing.

When doing my prediction in the predictions thread I did an all female Pyramid Sunday didn't mention it and nobody batted an eyelid, there really are a tonne of top female acts about at the moment so you can do this without it feeling like a gimmick and with a reasonable (certainly better than Reading/TRNSMT) amount of women spread around elsewhere as well.

Link to article?

I couldn't find it on their website. It's mentioned in a daily music biz newsletter I get, which has a round up of stories in the papers.

The newsletter says (exactly): Glastonbury Festival is plotting an all-woman Sunday line-up on the Pyramid stage this summer.

and that's all.

Potentially, but if the rest of the lineup is well balanced then not such an issue.  If he rest of the lineup is a sausage fest then yeah, very gimmicky. Also with Glastonbury it feels like more of another step in a sequence.  If R&L or TRNSMT do it next year then it would absolutely look like  a gimmick reaction to this year's criticism.

This seems less far fetched than the Janet Jackson story that broke about a year ago in a red top rag, and look what happened there.

Oh come on, pretty sure we'd all love to see Glasto's lady lumps.

1) all those acts rumoured for Sunday are great so no bones there 

2) it’s a bit of a gimmick 

3) ... when the best outcome is a diverse range of acts across all stages, and we don’t need to get our calculators out to find “balance”

Can’t remember what thread I’d previously mentioned this in ... at the time it got dismissed as not going to happen :)

Think Kacey Musgraves is busy on the Sunday but could definitely see it being something like Haim > Diana Ross > Alicia Keys > Dua Lipa > Taylor Swift. I agree with others saying that would be a bit gimmicky but equally that would be a brilliant run of acts and a great way to end the festival.

This Daily Star....?

 

yup. It publishes crap, but the peeps who do the music stuff are generally well-connected and do get accurate stories.

And this is an odd story for them to have made up, so I reckon it's from a source of some kind, quite possibly from last night's NME awards (which would suggest Emily, Michael, or Taylor).

It does feel a bit "gimmicky". If there were more women than men on every day - it would feel a bit more authentic & be more to how I'd rather it be done, but, I suppose this will probably register with the paying public more, so I think it's a good move.
