Have we ruled out Dua in place of Taylor? 

Appreciate it's not like for like. 

Billie or qotsa wouldn't do it for me but I'd love an opportunity to get to SE corner early, so not a downside for me.

They went for someone else instead of bumping up Dua to the Friday. Kinda makes me think they aren’t in a rush to have Dua headline if they can have her headline the other stage.

If she is perfectly happy to headline the other then they won’t bump her up.

Always said Dua will headline on album #3.

I think Billie being a bigger touring force and headlining a few things way before Glastonbury has given her the edge. They are both massive but I think Billie has been the stronger touring artist so far. Dua can’t sell tour dates like Billie can… (in fact I’d say only Taylor and Adele can sell dates like her… maybe Ariana too).

Beyonce and BTS since theyre stadium acts.

Fair - is it a leftfield opinion to say even beyonces sales have got a bit wobbly lately?

Define wobbly. You still cant quantify Billie ticket sales on a stadium level to see how it holds up anyway. If she decided to play Wembley and sold it out  clean in an hour then you got an argument but we’re not there yet. I think she will do a victory lap in north america next fall and itll be stadiums so we’ll judge then.

Dare I ask is Billie actually any good live?! Love her albums played loud in the car and when out walking on decent headphones but the videos I have seen are a bit meh. Her visuals and lights are good but she seems a bit bored? Or have I just seen the wrong videos?

She wasn't very good at her last appearance on the farm, imo. Seemed to be the general consensus at the time.

I agree that Sunday is Swifty's if she wants it and I really hope she does. Right now I think we're going to get:

Sulky Lolita
Relton Rohn
Tay Tay

Depends what youre watching. The glasto set didnt go that well at all. I mean the Reading set went off better and you can obviously tell because the crowd was reacting as if she was headlining that day. Sound mix is a big factor too because if you can actually discern her voice from the double vocals then you can tell she is signing and not hiding behind extra effects. The thing is you can really see how somebody is if youre watching them in broad daylight and if they can pull that off then when its night time and you can have a proper show with everything behind it then it can be better. Like I said, if she does play I would not expect anything out of the ordinary for Glasto. Its just another tour stop and itll be the same setlist as the rest of the dates. Its obviously a high standard for headliners when it comes to the fest and you hope the performer understands that, but I wouldnt in this situation. Is everyone going to get excited if she brought out Justin Bieber? Cause thats like the extent of special you would get.

I'm just not convinced with elton until there is something else put out there to indicate that he's interested in the festival. He's been silent on it and eavis has been silent on booking him. It’s not like other artists where the BBC / NME / etc jump on a bandwagon by rolling out articles of him turning up. It’s like the press haven’t really been briefed that he is a possibility.

I hope I don't upset reg fans, but I do just have this gut feeling that he's not interested in the place. I love reg but he's a very opinionated man. It wouldn't surprise me if he has some feeling about the place and vowed never to play. Mainly due to the fact he seems to always tour around the festival and never show up. Eavis never mentions him either, which may indicate they’ve tried before and received a pretty solid no. (All hypothetical and just a talking point).

I've no real strong feelings about whether he will be there or not (would see him if we were both there), but I don't think it has to be anything against Glastonbury per se but maybe just not much interest in doing festivals. I think Bestival is the only one he's done? So maybe he's just not really into the lack of control over every element of it that he would have at his own gigs.

I dunno, though. They might persuade him.

He certainly isn’t a great fan of festivals, that’s for sure! He’s expressed lots of admiration for Billie Eilish so that could make Glastonbury a little more appealing for him??

I would say plenty of big artists such as U2 and the Stones are reluctant to do shows off their own terms and both made exceptions for Glastonbury.

“I haven’t been asked, no,” he previously told BBC Radio 6’s Matt Everitt.
“I mean, they may have asked – but no one’s ever told me.
“But I love Glastonbury – what Glastonbury is good at, not just putting all sorts of music on the big stages, but it’s a great springboard for young acts.”

Doesn’t sound to me like a guy who’s vowed never to play. Think it’s more likely that neither side has gone out of their way reaching out.

Until we have our next curveball I think Billie, Macca, Taylor are our headliners.

A Glastonbury first booking two female artists in one year, and the fact that I can’t really see why Taylor wouldn’t come back. She’s more enthusiastic about her slot than Kendrick was, and Macca being in Belgium the week before means it has to be a done deal.

A lot of focus in on the headliners, but I think once the poster drops it will look fine in context. Let’s not forget that Billie, Macca, Taylor, Diana would potentially be sat on top of

Aerosmith, Queens of the Stone Age, Noel Gallagher, Lorde, Pet Shop Boys, Dua Lipa

Aint no other festival booking diverse lineups like that.

I completely forgot the Pet Shop Boys we’re still likely.

On a personal note, a trio of QOTSA, Reg and PSB would suit me just fine. Give me that and you can have Taylor AND Billie.

Have kind of avoided this thread most of the past year as ticketless and mired in the shit thread, but I've just caught up on 20-odd pages and it feels like olden times.

Main takeaway for me though is the shock news that QOTSA are still a thing and people are excited about seeing them. 

Some of us are still pretending it's 2002 though.

That’s an interesting point, I can’t remember either Eavis mentioning him at all really. Not even when thinking about legendary acts that haven’t played. It’s always Fleetwood Mac and that’s about it. I wonder why he doesn’t register with them? Maybe they’re just not fans.
