Self aware how?

KoL are still huge and shift tickets, they’re headliner status still imo and they’d be strange to take a sub slot.

Not saying they’ll headline this year but wouldn’t be shocked to see them do it again.

Hey, I like them, I bought Glasgow tickets yesterday morning. Just think they’d be a slightly underwhelming Glastonbury headliner these days, even if I suspect they will get another crack at it some day. Subbing someone mega huge like a Macca or Elton, or headlining the Other against pop on the Pyramid wouldn’t be a bad gig for them.

So you guys really want this to happen.

 

 

 

Still scratching my head on how that song became so popular. Coldplay has become much more -measuring my words- simple but they've still not wrote a lyric as cheesy as the ones in Fix You. Dreadful song.

Just seen the line up, looks like a festival on its final legs. A first announcements of 'meh' acts. Nothing that you look at and go, thats a great booking

I think it's a step up from the last few years. Muse are at least a genuine stadium act.

Kasabian only headlined in 2018 and since then have been through their 'issues'. Not sure who still wants to see them headline (Peter Crouch obviously, but who else).

Yes it’s a step up. IOW is probably going to remain buoyant as it’s target audience isn’t exactly picking apart their lineups. They will probably do fine by booking the odd popular act every few years and booking acts for the mums. Credibility wise tho I can’t see it recovering. 
 

The future of festivals pulling large acts in the UK is now limited to Glastonbury, BST, Parklife, and maybe the odd upcoming star at R&L. We are already nearing a point where gigantic acts in the UK either do Glastonbury, Stadiums or both… not much in between.

Agreed. Imagine if IOW had managed to bag Elton and/or Coldplay. Would be a totally different story.

It's a gamble in Kasabian. Still nobody knows where they sit on the popularity scale now... and a safe booking in Muse. Nothing inspiring but it's a B+ pair of headliners imo

So maybe like I said the other day, major acts will have to take headline gigs at medium-sized festivals to get paid.

Are Muse *that* far apart from Coldplay? Coldplay sell more records and get more airplay but they're still multiple Glastonbury (and other festival) headliners, stadium fillers and whatnot...
