Emily Evening Standard interview

Recommended Posts

Sorry if already been posted but can’t see it and can’t see it online either. Interview with Emily in tonight’s Evening Standard - no big reveals but nice nonetheless. McCartney planning something “very special” and trialing reusable coffee cups....hope you can read it 🙂

Taylor planning on spending the weekend there is cool. No doubt @CaledonianGonzo will be lurking by the loos on Saturday night.

The Macca thing has to be guests, surely?

Could Taylor do a secret set as well as headlining

I am 100% ok with this. I know it's not the most popular opinion around here but I loved the half hour version of Best of You. People were singing "woah oh woah" all evening and someone woke me up with it the next morning. 

More than happy to repeat with "na x 1 million"

To be fair, Taylor does have shows in Berlin on the Wednesday and Oslo on the Friday, so "weekend" might be a bit of an overstatement..

Maybe, but it's stretching what most people would think of when they hear that..

Posting a sideways photo of an article that could be easily found vertically online is the most 'my dad' thing to do.

I don't say this to take the piss. It's endearing and I love you.

Don't worry, it sounds like you're a generation younger than my dad.

So long as, in order to start a new MS Word document, you don't find an attachment in your emails, open it, then delete the entire contents and start from there then you've nothing to worry about.

I used to work with a lady, who when she needed to forward a PDF on to someone would print the said PDF, then scan it in and send that in an email!

Maybe Taylor is actually @JoeyT and that whole baby nonsense was her low-key trying to find out how much time she can spend at the festival

I knew someone that re-spell-checked photocopies.

Filling the last few slots is interesting. I remember in the run up to 2015 Emily said they intentionally leave some slots vacant just in case someone asks to play pretty late on in the game. Exciting stuff.

That's probably how they were able to squeeze in Burt Bacharach that year. I remember he was a very late addition, and they were able to use a spare space in the schedule. I guess if they didn't fill the spot, there'd be no shortage of acts who'd like a bump up to the Pyramid.

Yup and I think they are mindful of it too. I think they do it just to see if any acts get a meteoric rise between being booked and when the festival rolls around.

Usually after Coachella, the early festivals, and Big Weekend, you get a small inclining of which smaller acts are going to get massive crowds. For example, Billie Eilish was bumped from JP to other after a huge slot at Coachella and album release.

It’s smart to be honest.

It is wonderful how the mind works.

This is the species that invented the rocket ship and the Kinder Bueno.

This was written seconds before @fat_man_joe found his dad was the mastermind behind Extinction Rebellion 😃
