2022 Headliners

There’s a slight difference between a DJ set somewhere buried deep in the naughty corner in the middle of the night and a daytime set on one of the big stages. Any gap in the schedule or attempt at a pseudonym becomes jumped on and analysed in depth weeks before we even get to the festival.

The AFX set was in the Temple and was well known about beforehand, the Spike one was more under the radar.

I see. A very good secret it was then!

Yeah. They still seem happy to do them though and I don’t think that will be a deterrent.

@Suprefan are you sure Billie has another O2 date? A few posts out now that the Europe tour is fully sold out. I don’t know why they wouldn’t announce the Sunday date.

Whilst I don’t think she’s playing - if she’s only booked up on the glasto Saturday and no gigs on the Friday / Sunday, we can’t rule her out yet. Especially since she is confirmed in the country on Glasto weekend, and the nearest gigs are spaced out a few days away.

Here’s one for you Matt... if Billie is indeed free on the Sunday would you accept her headlining if it meant losing Taylor?

Would suck but it’s also possible that Swift / Macca / Kendrick are switching dates. Macca could be playing Sunday and Taylor could be playing Saturday.

Unless one of them announce a date during Glasto weekend there is no rule that they returning on the exact dates that they were originally booked.

You know today is a holiday and nothing will come up til maybe tomorrow? And I said the venue is being held so its their choice to use it or not. It should be added but 🤷🏻‍♂️. Now you get to rack your mind on a bigger will she or wont she if it stays like this.

Dua Lipa’s third album is apparently in the works. Would be quite mad if she had it out for next summer.

Surely if she has album #3 ready for next year then she isn’t headlining the Other? She could instead headline the whole shebang in 23 on that album’s victory lap.

Unless she's already been booked to play from earlier this year. Which would of carried on from last year? If shes not playing then I can 100% see her headlining 2023. Which would also be interesting to see if they would do Billie and Dua both headlining.

They need to add a 4th day 

You mean they need to allow bands on Pyramid and Other for Thursday.

 

and Dua is “thinking about album 3”. No indicator it could be finished by the winter and released in the spring.

I think Billie is doing it. No more announced dates and it's too convenient to be able to make it on both the Friday and Sunday of the fest.

Even if say she did Tinderbox on the Friday. Both The 02 and Glastonbury are within close enough proximity to do both and have the Monday off with Belgium across the water.

But with the money she is making from her tour, I'm inclined to think she may opt for Glastonbury as a televised set will set her up for bigger things the year after or even later next year.

Billie v Taylor? What happened to the good old days of real rock legend debates like Foals v 1975.

So now we have Dua Lipa subbing Billie Eilish and Lady Gaga under Taylor Swift. Can you imagine! Joking aside though, I think they would book either of those over Kendrick.

Why would they? Kendrick is the biggest rapper on the planet.

All joking aside with the “they won’t book x and y in the same year”, I can definitely see them having Gaga and Taylor together. I think both are big enough and have more than enough credibility to not be seen as “ugh two women pop stars headlining”.
