The Jo Whiley "Reveal" Show

Recommended Posts

How about this for an idea – on the days before the first poster is released, Jo Whiley does a slow-reveal on her show, playing a track from each of the acts on the main stages in reverse order, peaking with the Pyramid line-up. Maybe it would need to take place over a few days, come to think of it – could include brief interviews with the bands, perhaps get Emily on there too?

Worth paying your BBC licence fee for, I reckon.

Personally I’d rather a format which didn’t include having to listen to Jo Whiley in order to know who’s playing.
That said, I’ve nothing against a slow reveal. Most years I take henry junior to an airshow in Gloucestershire, which just happens to be the biggest and best in the world. And just like Glastonbury, the lineup is a matter of great debate. The enthusiasts want rarities from far and wide, whilst Joe Public wants the Red Arrows etc. And from about February, until July, one or two (or more) of the attractions will be announced each Thursday, and slowly - over the months leading to the show, the lineup takes shape.

But radio doesn't need TV licence

Although this isn't a bad suggestion, this year I feel like they'll go for something with a bit an instant impact but likely to gain a fair bit of publicity at the same time. A simple poster reveal doesn't feel enough this time round. 

How about Michael getting tattoos of each act on his legs?

Usually the reveals have been done on 6 Music recently and as a 6 Music listener I'd like it to remain that way :D

They missed an opportunity in December to reveal an act an day in an advent calendar format.

Didn’t even have to be all big names either, could have been Taylor one day, Mik Artistik the next...

24 days with a different Mik track each day would have been great.

Didn't Radio 1's Zane Lowe show do this the Rolling Stones year, but starting at the top of the poster and working down song by song.  I remember it being quite good.  His show started at 7pm was synchronised with the poster drop.

Out of upvotes. Dammit.

This thread got my hopes up that this was a solid plan and was going to happen soon. Now i'm back to the torture of not knowing when the poster will drop. Dammit again.

Actually.... Tomorrow is the first day of Lent - 40 days, 40 acts leading up to the poster on Easter Sunday.

Make it happen Eavis!

He used to do it for Reading/Leeds 10/15 years ago. Radio on, line up dropped and scramble to get a ticket page refreshing non stop.

This is one of those ideas that sounds a lot better in theory than it actually works in practice.. I've seen a few festivals try something along these lines (off the top of my head, Shambala did a version of it last year), and it's very easy for interest to trail off after a few acts that aren't to your taste.

I just think the idea of having to tune in to Jo Whiley's show every night quite a ghastly thought.

Imagine how much Oasis you'd end up listening to.
