Macca’s actually done things of interest in the last 10 years.

Oh behave. I’m not going to lower myself to argue with you. That is the beauty of the festival. People like different music. I like Elbow and have never heard of Doja Cat but you will never hear me slagging other artists off.

Difficult to know where to start with this

Poster from the 2nd year I went.

If someone said that the acts who played had a "best before" date then they'd never fill all these blooming stages.

I’d rather the majority of the bands in that lineup play this year than Elbow - Madness, The Cure or The Pogues would each be great acts to see as they have fans young and old, even if peoplE just remember their obvious hits.

Elbow have no cross generational appeal, they’re just dull Radio 6 music for 40+ pseuds. 
 

Macca is playing because he’s a living legend. Doja Cat was playing because she’s a huge contemporary pop and r&b star. It baffles me why Elbow seem to be so high up on the bill?

So the BBC can jizz when they play 'that' song.

Madness were poor on the Pyramid the other year. 2016? Just felt really flat. I was looking forward to them, but left disappointed.

Clearly you didn't see Madness in 2016. As others said, it was quite a surreal disappointment to those of us looking forward to it.  Secondly the Cure are obviously not gonna come back imminently after such a cracking headline set and the Pogues haven't been active for years. 

If you're gonna advocate best before dates you really need to up your game.

I honestly have no idea what you're talking about when you refer to "advocating best before dates". I have no knowledge of the performances you're referring to either. 

All I'm saying is Elbow are a very middle of the road band who don't have either a nostalgic appeal or feel very relevant in 2022.

Comparing them to the artists on the flyer you've posted is strange as they genuinely don't hold a candle to any of them.

I don't disagree with that.

They are however a band that's proven to be hugely popular amongst the Glastonbury audience, and are friends of the festival™, and those facts will count for more than enough to ensure that that they're considered for decent slots.

Same reason that Coldplay will come around for another headline set eventually, no matter how many people complain about it being uninspired there'll be 5 times as many people in the field enjoying it.

Elbow are 😴 tbh but I understand they have a massive appeal. 

Nostalgic appeal though I know at least two couples who had one day like this played during their wedding ceremony 🤢

I mean its not as if  theyre not gonna book some safe acts on the bill.. The issue is why Elbow is getting a sub slot  before Kendrick Lamar of all artists. If its for crowd control purposes, well theyre succeeding in making sure their Sunday headliner is going to have a small amount of people wait around after Elbow, since those same folk are going to head towards Pet Shop Boys. BBC isnt gonna be showing many aerial shots of Kenny on sunday thats for sure.

I'm a bit surprised at some of the Elbow comments on here, quite un-Glastonbury like, they've put lots of new material out since the last time they played the Pyramid in 2014, I think they seem perfect for 3rd down on the Sunday, anyone who saw them play previously would agree that it always feels special seeing them down there, as he has a huge affinity with the place, and talks about it with such passion. They had a massive crowd even up against The XX when they did the secret slot up the Park a few years ago, and lets be perfectly honest, the size of Kendrick's crowd is going to have nothing to do with Elbow coming off stage about 3 hours earlier. Horses for courses and all that, if it's not for you, i'm sure there will be something somewhere to float your boat. God we need the full line up now don't we!!

Not sure if i'm in the minority but it works for me cause I like Elbow and Kendrick

The thing is, as has been said before, they are a friend of the festival and were booked for the 50th celebration as were many others to commemorate the occasion. High up Sunday is the perfect slot for them! They’ll draw a huge crowd, One day like this, will be their last song, it’ll have loads of happy punters singing along and it’ll many peoples highlight of the festival. That’s why they’ve been booked, not Spotify streams or tic tic hits! Because they suit Glastonbury.

Several of the bands in this bill are playing this year (or key members from them) Waterboys, Paul Heaton, Billy Bragg are all around. 

I would happily see any of them again. 

I'm also looking forward to Elbow whatever position they play.
