I’m just shocked Harry Styles and Dua Lipa aren’t there…. So very shocked @Matt42 😘

I think if Harry is on it they cant put it on the poster Right now or face the wrath of everyone who bought stadium tickets. If they pop him up there in May there is nothing anyone can do about it. And would you want to add that fanbase to the resale pot?

Dua is clearly keeping her powder dry for 2023. Can't think of a safer shoo in for lock of the week.

I’ve folded on Dua.

I’ve not folded on Harry / Flo.

Flo getting her own announcement in respect of her being a previous headliner would make sense to me.

They don't announce secret sets which save face for acts no longer really in the headliner conversation.

Not sure if this is the right place to post it, but made a start on a 2022 playlist, obviously gonna be adding a lot more to it - any suggestions for songs to add? I'm into most genres, but very much wanting to discover new acts!

Was hoping on  Stereophonics, Radiohead, Fat boy slim , Chemical brothers , Doves

Well you’ll have a 20% success rate so not a total loss.

And there’s info Chems are DJing on Pangea so if that comes off you’re up to 40%!

 I think we'll be getting some other british fare on the next announcement. Its slightly lacking in that department. The Craig Davids, Stereophonics, Travis, Kaiser Chiefs, Snow Patrol kind of stuff isnt there and to some degree normally has a presence. So its kinda weird they didnt put it on this poster unless they didnt want to step on the toes of some of the other fests who have those booked and want to have them sell some more tickets before adding them on. I mean what are Editors, La Roux, Manics, Dizzee Rascal doing right now anyway.

Dizzee’s laying low under threat of cancellation.

Weakest set of headliners in recent years for me not that I ever watch many. Foo's and The Cure only ones I've seen in full since 2014 when I started going again.

You not liking them doesn’t make them weak, just means you don’t like them. They are anything but weak, one of the biggest up and coming pop stars, a, if not the, most legendary singer/songwriters of all time, and one of the biggest hip hop acts on the planet by no measure can be considered weak.

I will only see one of them but by no means would I consider any of them weak.

Hear hear. Rarely means much anyway.

2015's offering of the Foos, Kanye and The Who was, on paper, very strong — look how that panned out. One leg break, one topsy-turvy set that fell short, and one pointless booking that stank up the place.

2019 was, on paper, fairly weak — and it was possibly the most unanimous triple-slam dunk the fest pulled off since 2009. (Even then, Bruce had grumbles for being indulgent)

Got a 20-year-old, a Beatle and a Pulitzer winner: three generational icons from three very different lanes of music. It's class.

Was funny how riled up Kanye got people though.

Was in The Back of Beyond after his set and we got chatting to this dad and son who were there together. Person I was with asked dad if he saw Kanye. He starts frothing at the mouth going “Apparently he said he’s the greatest rock star on the planet! How can he say that?! The fucking Who are playing tomorrow!!”

Was mental. We just looked at each other and walked away.

Still regret not seeing Kanye.

Went to Suede instead, which was fine, but can’t help but feel I missed out.

Thought I was watching an all timer headline set after the first two songs. Ended up being fun but obviously was a bit of a trainwreck.

It's a struggle to think of a more underwhelming comeback than that of Doves over the last couple of years.

Every reunion in the past couple of years has been pretty underwhelming. None of them have played their shows yet.

Dizzee still needs to play a gig he has still not rescheduled from his intimate album launch shows. On verge if sending the CD and tickets back for a refund.

Yeah this is where I'm at overall.

The opening run of Stronger, Power, Paris, Black Skinhead and All Day was insanely good. He was crushing it. Both encores were electric and he had a few highs dotted (Mercy, Blood On The Leaves, No Church In The Wild/Jesus Walks). But got thrown off his game and had at least 45min completely in the weeds, in a way I don't think is comparable to any other Glasto headliner.

Not so bad as to elicit boos, not so consistent as to back his chat about being the greatest rockstar – a score draw. Top piss-boiling antics.

I think in hindsight its potentially regrettable because at that stage it mightve been the best you were going to get out of him and the chance he properly tours and such now is very low.
