That was just Matt42 stating his wishes as fact every day and posting essays to anyone who disagreed, to be fair.

I swear she hasn’t looked particularly likely to return at any point.

I mean for the last few months, as concrete info about various acts & festivals' plans for 2022 have become clearer yes, but I meant back in April/May sort of time, when pretty much everything was pure speculation.

Did the locals want Sheeran in 2017? If not for Macca or even Elton being available, then you couldve maybe had Kendrick on Sunday and its a true sign that there shouldnt be a headliner catered just for those few thousand  people who live in the region. Theyre not going to have very many artists they like be a Sunday headliner in a few years anyway.

Probably. The dude is one of the biggest celebrities in the country. You can't really get any more well known, easy going and Radio 2 than Ed Sheeran.

Just had a flashback to a debate on here that the 2013 Sunday Locals would have preferred Mumford and Sons to the Stones as they play music more suited to rural Somerset farming types.

It's a known fact that Somerset farmers spend all day listening to the Wurzels and drinking moonshine out of those big jugs with the X's on them.

I think as soon as she started putting out rerecordings it seemed quite likely she would probably wait till after she was done with all of those to be done and out before topping the pointy one

With the license extending over so many years, do the locals really have that much sway over things any more? Griffiths can yabber away all she likes in the MDC meetings, but her reach isn't what it used to be, surely.

I mean, sure, but the festival I imagine still want to be on good terms with the local residents, after all the Eavis' still live there the rest of the year. They do still put up with a lot what with the build, event and disassembly. It doesnt take much effort from the festivals part to swap Macca and Kendrick after all, assuming they are both available on those other days.

I don't think the threat of licence issues has ever really much of a factor in terms of lineup conversations - by the sounds of it, the idea of a locals-friendly act on the Sunday has always allegedly been about Michael hearing it from his neighbours if he books someone they don't like.

I really want to see her loitering by the cider bus … complaining about the Sunday headliner

Interesting that a few months back the general consensus seemed to be that Taylor was the most nailed on returner out of 2020's trio, and now it seems all but certain that she's the only one not back

Just shows that we’re all a bunch of geeks who haven’t got a fucking clue.

I think if things came to a head, Glasto would in win a court case if they were denied a license one year because the locals demanded a certain type of artist. That is not relevant in any way for the event to be able to happen. I dont hear the locals for Coachella complaining about not getting a certain headliner on the poster. Probably because the region gets around a $700 million boost in its economy due to the festival happening.

Billie Kenny Macca

Strong Strong Strong

Only seen Radiohead on the Pyramid in the 4 times I’ve been. Chuffed (tho QOTSA on the Friday is probs where I will end up).

Praying Thom Yorke and Kenny don’t clash again 🥲

How confident is the kendrick prediction?

Neil (eFestivals) has info that Billie, Macca, Kendrick is our trio. He got Billie right so pretty likely that the Kendrick info is right too.

And that Billie info was a little while back too.
