😡😤Absolutely raging. Why give it to a nobody when the fans are crying out for a proper rock band? Muse are right there! I've been a Glastonbury fan for 30 years, but enough's enough. Time to support a real fest, like Isle of Wight.

Muse are a washed up bag of shit now living off the back of 12/13 year old albums.

Incredible.

Let's not skip over how massive this is entirely aside from it being Billie Eilish. Glastonbury festival is back. After 18 months stuck in limbo going around in circles arguing about the Strokes and Pyramid exoduses, we're finally on the fucking countdown baby.

This!!!

Just a thought - the Billie announcement seems to be a poster with her name at the top, with room for the 3 headliners and possibly legend. What about them announcing a name a day this week, or a name each week for the next month, filling out that poster?

It's also the first look at next year's artwork too, and I really kinda like it!

Nah, I think they'll each get that poster with their name on the top.

Wouldn't expect anything else for a while now.

Cause you think theyll shrink the font and fit them? Doubt it. If that was what they were going after then its all at the same time and not a single name type thing. Theyll each get their own whenever names are announced.

So, Nov 1st is the next announce? Its a monday!!!!

Feeling like it might be a little while before the next announcement now. Great to get excited by the early announcement last night and post this morning (even if not fussed on Billie personally).

I think, given Macca, Kenny and Diana are returners maybe they’ll just wait until the poster?

they didn’t announce Aerosmith last time, they could maybe do that?

I’m going out on a limb, leaning in to the excitement of today and I reckon we’ll get all the headliners and Ross announced before Christmas, and even before the December. Seems like they’re all sorted, Ross seems obvious and Macca is probably just twiddling his thumbs waiting to be announced. Kenny is the one that might take longer depending on his other plans but I think we get them all in the next 7/8 weeks.

Announcement wise from last time there was an act revealed in Oct, Nov, Dec and Feb before the poster in March. They should just have one in January on top of that and that’ll do it. 
 

Maybe they skip announcing Diana and give a new name? For 2019 they announced Janelle Monae as a West Holts headliner for example, why not do that sort of thing again.

Last couple of years we got to October and suddenly Kendrick started dropping festival dates for the following summer. While I doubt GF will announce him any time soon I'd expect to see a few Euro festivals announce him that will all but confirm him.

I think the announcements pre poster will be “new” acts that are playing the festival. So ones not on the 2022 lineup. They typically get the press attention and work best with gathering hype.

At least one headliner will be saved for the post, reckon it will be Kendrick just like last time.

ha h raging after 2 years of no Glastonbury - a year ago we were all saying we'd take the wurzels headlining. She's so relevant, how can you be raging ? May not be to your taste but raging? seriously? Unless you;re a 'booker' for the pyramid I'd say raging is a rather self entitled view 🙂 I may not be there, but its a decent booking and will make people talk far more than Muse (And I am a muse fan) - BTW IOW is a good festival if you feel the need to support them 🙂

Is there any reason not to post the lineup sooner than later? Seems like most acts have been organising tours a lot earlier than normal lately (due to less availability in gig venues) and also to secure a steady income from festival slots. They could really mix things up with a pre-xmas poster with a couple new people + confirming the acts returning from 2020...
