They were already gonna be over here this summer anyway; I recall they were supporting Duran Duran at their BST show. So it's not like they're a lock

ah ok didn’t realise.

Bit of an exaggeration there, they've played the festival exactly twice, 3 and 7 years ago.

Plenty big acts have played more without that criticism - Tame Impala being a good recent example.

I mean yeah they last played in 2017 which was only two festivals ago. As far as I can see they played the same set list in 2013 and 2017. I imagine they’d play the same set list if they came back again.

There’s nothing wrong with being a houseband but I do feel like the novelty of the booking will start to wear off if they come back every few years.

Gateshead! I knew it was them! Even when it was the coronavirus I knew it was them! 

Convincing my mum and dad to see LCD at the end of a very trudge-y weekend was next level special. My da (in his 60s) was peripherally into the band but I'd had to briefed my mum that day on what

There's always room for getting funky with Niles and the gang.

I agree, I think they could slot in next year, especially if someone has pulled out...always a solid booking.

We know we might have some replacements and if the Eavii need to call in some favours from the regulars, so be it.

Besides, we’ll all be up for a dance to these hits if the festival goes ahead.

I wouldn’t be surprised if she’s headline or nothing now but where would Cardi B play at Glastonbury these days?

I don’t think she would purely because I imagine she’d charge a lot of money. She seemed to shoot straight to headlining festivals after her album came out so now that she’s getting even bigger it’s hard to imagine Glastonbury being able to afford her unless she headlined, as is the case with most big US hip-hop acts.

way too expensive for glasto. Think she might be a shout for wireless with those dates tho.

I would think she is on the Pyramid, probably 3rd or 4th down unless they wanted a rapper to sub a rapper. ( ie Kendrick ) The plus side is she does perform a set of full songs with a couple of short ones just due to being a guest on a track and to fill things out but nothing too out of hand. Downside is that Glasto isn’t her type of thing ( doesnt get what it truly is ) and she would try to be late to her performance cause she thinks she runs everything.  BBC wouldnt be too pleased airing the performance though, especially WAP.
 

Rolling Loud needs a name on their poster to draw and that is her at the moment. And yeah, Wireless seems like a safe bet though. A “headline” set from her is an hour so that’s all anyone is paying for. Not a deep enough catalog to warrant something longer even with a new album.

Surely not again. These lot are becoming a bit of a houseband.

Considering how big of a crowd they got last time - I’m worried they could become a lazy sub option in the future..

How could any music or Glastonbury fan say ‘surely not’ to Chic playing Glastonbury.  
 

Aside from them being incredible live, it’s quite a large festival and there’s plenty to see if it’s not your bag.

Don't think this has been mentioned yet but Kacey Musgraves has herself down for Rock Wertcher on their website so I expect she'll be back

Another one I’d completely written off so incredible if she’s back. Gutted she’s seemingly not back at Primavera which I definitely have a ticket for, but good to see I might get another chance to see her at Glastonbury ticket depending.

Ah that’s a proper bonus. More names I thought were out the picture are starting to come back.

That might just be another case of their site just copying the dates from bandsintown. Not concrete
