I remain convinced it was Mumfords.

Whilst I wasn’t convinced as I think they’d be on a small stage (like they have done before) I can’t deny that it was looking like slim pickings for who it could be. I was stumped.

Just saw she's playing Primavera, so hopefully she'll be back for Glastonbury.

I think there’s another European show she’s playing that’s even closer to Glasto (can’t remember off the top of my head). She looks pretty sure bet to come back.

I’d probably be 80% Dua 20% McCartney. Maybe head to McCartney for the end?

Yeah I feel ya tbh. It's not anything against Macca, it's just more that Dua's ascent has been so rapid and Future Nostalgia has hit so big that it feels really exciting.

Probably makes people uncomfortable because of the connotations of Lolita - the link with child sexual exploitation etc.  https://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Lolita 

Maybe. That does rather assume a particular (and incorrect) interpretation of what I said. What I was actually referring to was a marketing bent towards under-age seduction, evidenced by lyrics like "bruises, on both my knees for you" and "might seduce your dad type". You might feel comfortable listening to this from a 17 year old child, but each to their own.

 Would much rather have Dua not against Macca if at all possible unless there was a scheduling miracle and both were not overlapping. What if they just made Dua the Pyramid sub for Macca and there is just somebody else in Other Saturday night? Or we’re safely assuming the run of Aerosmith, Noel and Macca is locked up.

Because Noel Gally G is in the frame. Can’t bump him off or turn him down if he wants to play.

I obviously am not losing sleep if he’s there or not but he would be some peoples highlight of the weekend. He’s very very very popular.

No Macca for you then? I’m surprised.

If Macca headlines, nobody could possibly be disappointed. We’re comparing a former Beatle to a living legend. Nobody is a loser in that scenario. If push comes to shove, in this world of the inordinately entitled, I’m going with Relton Rohn.

Fair enough. Will be interesting how this turns out. Looking at Elton’s dates I am predicting he’s doing 2023 instead of 2022. I think his dates put him firmly in for a Saturday headline slot in 2023… playing in Paris the Monday after big G.

That logic doesn’t hold much water considering he’s playing London the weekend of the Big G next year.

Just thinking outside the box here but do you think Taylor Swift would accept a sub spot (but with a headline length set) below McCartney or Elton John. 

No one would think any less of her and this way Matt and Mr Jass will both be right and everyone wins

You think this is about being right?

I mean, it is, but still…

Its possible if nobody cared about their egos. I mean this isnt Janet Jackson we’re taking about who photoshopped her own poster to be first overall. Taylor was not even the first name on the 2020 poster anyway. But in the end, an agent isnt doing their job right if they cant secure a headline spot for their artist and has to compromise.
