Popping in here for an obligatory Swifty nod.

I still believe.

The question now is whether she’d hold Glastonbury above all the other dates it’s become apparent she isn’t doing. Is that possible?

Well, she has a second home in the UK. She has close friends who would sell her the idea of playing. But she has a gold-standard management team who would manage all of her tour dates.

Glastonbury would have to be personal to her to insist on it. I’d like to believe that’s possible. But it would also mean she’d be committing to a singular date that’s inaccessible to her fan base. That strikes me as unlikely.

As much as I would move heaven and earth to have Swift back in 2022 it sounds to me like she’s busy. The re-recordings and her personal life with Joe sound like the priority right now.

It really wouldn’t surprise me if they plan to get married at some point next year and that’s why a summer of touring is off.

Would her fan base really be that irked by her playing a single UK date? She could feasibly do something for a chunk of her fan base as a fairly last minute warm up gig for instance.

I like you would like to think she looks at Glastonbury perhaps above any other festivals. I think the ethos both of the festival itself and Emily's proactive nature to ensuring females have an equal platform / representation on the lineup is likely to resonate.

I don't see how re-recording her back catalogue has an impact on her ability to play live dates as others have mentioned though?

Aye. They're all fucking bonkers.

I can’t believe she’d go to the effort of getting her band back together and rehearsing a new show, with a new production, with all the effort and logistics that goes into it, just to play one gig that pays peanuts.

I mean her last 3 big shows were all one off's, the City of Lover concert, Capital Jingle Bell Ball and Amazon Prime Day, definitely not beyond her.

Well damn, sorry if Pitchfork rubbed you the wrong way cause they gave your fave artist one bad review and you dont think what they do for their festival means anything to the landscape.  Theyve been had at least one female headliner since 2015 and had a 50/50 gender split since 2013. Plus a total of 3 occasions of 2 female headliners. So a smaller less meaningful event in your eyes with less resources has been able to do that and Glasto hasnt, so what does that tell you.  But if you need something a bit larger then FYF Fest 2018 had all female headliners. or The Essence Festival which has been around since 1995 and has had all female headliners a few times, but since it caters to african american audiences you probably would not care. But who is counting unless a white festival organizer does it. How about all queer headliners? FYF Fest had that in 2015 until Frank Ocean dropped out.  And have you ever heard of Lilith Fair which was all female artists from top to bottom on their line ups when it was around over 20 years ago? So quit while youre ahead and have respect for the ones that are actually doing it right now and dont have to seek headlines about what theyre doing, they just do it and history will show that they were ahead of everyone else.

if they find this message you'll get death threats to your door, Glass Animals were in a chart race with her last year and one of them made a joke on twitter and thousands of her fans were hounding them for weeks. i still see it on tiktoks with Heat Waves people in the comments mentioning their beef

Adele was never a serious contender, three festivals and just one album since her last appearance? It'd be the same basic set with a couple of new ones chucked in.

I've made no secret of how much I enjoyed her 2016 set. she absolutely smashed it, but I can't see any need to return to it any time soon. There was a whole narrative on the night about her overcoming her stage fright, doing the gig she always wanted to and nailing it. Loses its magic a little if she's back a few years later and it becomes just another massive show for her.
