2022 Headliners

Our man Ken says Rock Werchter are working on another TW Classic headliner too. We know Macca was down for that in 2020 but this year seemed to be Springsteen until he cancelled the tour, though I’m sure Ken said they still had something lined up for Macca. Hopefully he’s decided to tour and this is him finalising everything, it would fit in with him generally not sorting things too far in advance.

I expect that the information was true at a point in time, and I hope it still is, but the sources reinforcing the info could potentially be working off what they heard pre-pullout so I’m too cautious to believe it ‘adds’ to what we’ve got.

Paul and Kendrick doing what could be their only shows of the summer - or even the year - at Glastonbury would be an amazing coup. But just reading it written down makes me think how far-fetched that might be.

I think we need some indication by February. Acts will know if they’re committed to playing shows this summer by then. Fingers crossed.

agreed with this, id be surprised if glastonbury had 2 completely exclusive headliners. February will be very telling I think

Unless pull out was earlier this week I’ve no reason to believe what I’ve heard isn’t correct.

It pains me to say it as I wanted Taylor over Kendrick so badly.

The only nagging thought I have is that the days in which both Macca and Kenny are supposedly playing weren’t how I imagined it. Therefore I think I’m using that thought process to doubt what I’ve heard when apart from that there’s no reason to doubt its authenticity.

Radio 2 toting Harry Styles and Liam Gallagher as “heading to Glastonbury” this morning 🤔

Zoe Ball just mentioned Styles tour dates and LG’s ‘big announcement’ today. Even said the words ‘could it be Billie Eilish?’ In her excitement. She’s hyping up speculation but doesn’t know anything.

Aren’t we still missing a BST headliner? Kendrick was booked for that too…

I think RW’s final headliner is a band according to brave sir…

I’ve checked the other threads and it looks like Les Ardentes is missing a headliner too. Kendrick was down for that in 2021 too.

Which festivals for which Kendrick was headlining in 2021 no longer have him booked for 2022?

How many are left?

I really don’t think the days are an issue as Macca was Saturday last time. Kendrick on Sunday isn’t that weird if that is how it turns out.

No longer booked or no longer have space?

We know he was doing Opener and Ardentes and both have a missing headliner. Don’t know about others. He is gone from RW and the others.

Acts will play whatever day works best for them or the festival. If Macca was asked first and picked Saturday then so be it, Kendrick takes Sunday.

I doubt either would kick off over what day. You’re either the big Saturday night headliner or you’re closing the whole thing.

Just trying to get a sense of whether his activity in Europe is no longer happening, or whether that's just restricted to a few festivals who perhaps couldn't wait for him to confirm.

If there are several festivals he could still play - enough to justify travelling to Europe - I'll have more confidence he's playing the big G.

It’s kinda hard to gauge some that don’t have space as some festivals book like 3 headliners a day

in my opinion the festivals to watch are the US ones that are tba in the weeks after Glastonbury. If Kendrick has to whisk away to do them I can see why Glasto would be a one off.

He left it late last year to confirm his plans for 21 to the point that many festivals moved on and booked other acts. Looks like he’s left it even later this year.

GF have done well to hold their nerve and wait, although you’d have to suspect they would have been given encouragement from Kendrick’s people to do so.

@dentalplanwill disagree but I think the initial plan was always for Kendrick to do Glastonbury and the other festivals in Europe booked him because they knew he was available.

If he was giving it a long time before confirming big G, I can see why the EU festivals would move on. If he won’t sign for the other EU festivals until big G is formed out.

Looking at festi leaks the majority of mainland Europe festivals still feel very uncertain on whether they can go ahead. I can’t see many of them agreeing to wait until the wire for one act when their priority is to get tickets sold. I think general concerns around COVID will have played a big factor in whether festivals would wait for Kendrick.

Exactly. After two years of cancellations what they needed was acts confirmed and tickets on sale.

Hopefully yesterday’s announcements will allow the festival to give US and foreign acts a lot more certainty over the festival going ahead and the lack of restrictions on it.

Majority of these festivals had 90% of their lineups out in September. I can’t see them agreeing to wait until Feb or March to drop a headliner in this current climate.

Is there not an argument too that some of these festivals wanted to get tickets on sale asap as a quick cash injection, just in case it has to cancel again? Some people would hold onto their tickets so it’s a decent way of getting cash in the bank.

If coachella booked their headliners last minute, and Neil's info originates before then, and supposedly Kendrick was asked to play, why would he have said no?

Maybe he’s not ready? Maybe he’s locked in for somewhere else in the US like the Governor’s Ball.

Maybe his album won’t be ready/released in time for Coachella and he doesn’t want to play a bunch of unreleased material? I guess him only having headlined three festivals ago could also be a factor. Or maybe he’s feeling more comfortable with the UK’s handle on COVID over ‘muricas. Just spitballing, but there are a few reasons why this might be the case.

If he plans to drop the album in June then a show in April won’t work.

When he dropped DAMN he dropped it a few days before doing a string of festivals. It seems to be how he likes to do things.
