Did Aerosmith announce a day? You’d think they’d be on same day as Macca.

Saturday.

I was going to prop up the stage predictions post and query whether we could see some 2020 placements having a slight hacksaw taken to them. If we are already looking at the headliners having a day shuffle.

Macca, Aerosmith and DRoss all on the Sunday would be spectacular, but also seems far too good to be true. Surely Aerosmith will stay put if Macca moves and just stay local to pop up with him the next day?

edit: if them popping up with Macca ever was the plan, that is

Obviously acts can only play days they're available. Billie can only do Friday so that's locked in and I doubt Kendrick cares whether he plays Saturday or Sunday.

Having Macca Sunday makes sense from a locals friendly, festival closing perspective.

Killers headlined Saturday last time though 

 

Stormzy was Friday.

And Kendrick was originally for Friday? So they were already fine with two big rap acts headlining in succession on the same day.

I could be wrong but I don't think this is over yet.....for one I'm not certain that GFL themselves will be totally comfortable with a big rap act headlining Saturday night 2 festivals running.

I'm with you on that (or rather I am hoping you are right!)

Taylor replaced with .....  Billie Eilish 😢

Replacing one of the biggest female artists in the world with another one of the biggest artists in the world is a pretty good job. If Taylor isn’t available there isn’t anything they can do about it.

Female for female. There wouldve been an uproar if that wasnt the case. Emily is pretty proud about the gender split, especially at the top if you have 2 female and 2 male acts up there. ( counting the legend )

I'm happy with Billie, but I'm not sure she's a replacement that Taylor fans with Glasto tickets will be universally chuffed with. I think for the majority, Gaga or Adele would be seen as more appropriate replacements. It is what it is and there's no onus at all on the festival to "replace" Taylor, but I don't think Billie being a very popular female act means she's a perfect swap. It's best seen as a fresh booking I think.

If Billie wasn’t available how much do you wanna bet Adele would have been asked? Sounds like she’s going to be around just at the time of the festival.

They probably would have kept it in their back pocket if they were really stuck.

I'm not too sure. It depends on their stance with repeat bookings at this point - we've only had two festivals since Adele last played, but ultimately it'll also be 6 years when the next festival rolls around. Personally I'd rather them ignore the years and wait something like 4/5 festivals before repeating, but I'm sure we'll have exceptions to that. Adele's headline set just feels very fresh in the memory. Even Florence would seem a bit too soon, but maybe that's just me!

Yeah I think it would only be a last resort but aside from those who were there in 2016, Adele returning is something I can imagine happening and will probably go down well. I think she will join the list of people they can call on if they are super stuck and she’s about. It’s not like she has been everywhere and anywhere since she last played. People would find it a pretty unique booking!

Aye, she definitely has that star/unique quality. Obviously touring is crucial income for a lot of acts, but I really think when you reach that top level you can really benefit from staggering your releases/tours, making each one a bigger event. Look at Muse - they're around so often I think it's devaluing them as a live proposition. Liam is the same as well, to the point where I think an Oasis reunion is meaning less and less as years go by. It's interesting that Taylor was the queen of this, but has lurched to the opposite camp (in terms of album releases) but I guess she's a special case.

I'm disappointed but keeping an open mind (just).  When the 2019 Pyramid headliners were confirmed I was pretty relaxed about missing them - rap not being my thing, Killers were gash in 2007(?) and never been a Cure fan.

Watched them all on the tellybox though and realised we'd clearly missed something great.  I *may* swerve Kenny (surely Stormzy has that genre sewn up?), Billie we will almost certainly see given her profile and the opportunity, and Macca, well, he's a Beatle, not sure there are too many times to see a real Beatle playing live to 100,000 people in a field.

I understand there's other stuff on elsewhere too?

Oh I know there is nothing they can do .... doesn't mean I can't be disappointed about it. 

When your first Glasto was going to have one of your favourite artists making their first appearance on the Pyramid and it ends up being downgraded to Billie Eilish it is hard not to be disappointed.  No interest in Billie Eilish whatsoever- she isn't even in the same league as Taylor.

Agree with this.  Would have been delighted with Gaga, Adele or even giving Dua a bump up.  Just cannot get why Billie Eilish has got so big - just a load of hype.  She is dull as f**k and cant even sing
