Anyway - we have derailed the announcement thread... 

Indeed you have. Interesting discussion though, if it gets diverted elsewhere on the forum I’ll add my 2p worth.

Surely the full line up will be next Wednesday? 1st June and before the bank holiday. Otherwise it'll be 7th June and 2 odd weeks before the festival starts which'll be pretty late?

We've had inside info it's actually Monday 30th May.

I'm really not sure that Doja Cat has/ will cause any delay. I can't see why they'd be able to magic an act out of thin air that just happens to be touring in UK at this time etc. Why would they not have asked them already and they're already be on the line-up? They will just shuffle things around. 

 

I don't think the line-up was ever coming today, which Emily quoted as saying "in June". 

Nothing to do with Doja Cat. 

 

They got Gorillaz to replace U2 in 2010 "out of thin air". They had The Who magically jump onboard when it seemed very unlikely in 2015. Also, some acts genuinely say no. Maybe thats something that surprises you. Just cause youre one of the top fests in the world doesnt mean you get everyone just by picking up the phone. Plenty of acts are only attainable if the payday is right and Glasto doesnt pay full fees to anyone. Coachella made Ariana Grande happen in 24 hours when Kanye dropped out in 2019. They had to postpone about 10  tour dates to do it. They took an extra week to get Harry Styles this year when Rage Against The Machine backed out at the last minute. So plenty of things can happen in a weel or more. If glasto leaves the Doja spot at TBA then theyre going to take a little extra time to decide on what to do since they got it.

Point is, it’s probably a lot easier to replace an act that isn’t a headliner to one that is.

If one of the 3 Pyramid headliners pulls out it becomes newsworthy and all eyes are on the festival for a replacement. 

Regarding Doja pulling out, there are a lot more second tier acts around that could potentially fit in, or be bumped up from the current line-up.

Outside of here and the other festival sites has anyone even noticed? The general public only look at the headliners.

Yep every time someone asks whose playing they just want to know what 3 are on the Pyramid and maybe the legend slot as well.

well it does make the conversation easier and shorter. BUT I have to say a colleague with MOR musical taste did spot Doja Cat when spying on my screen that was displaying the line up poster. Well that old thing that needs updating!

I’m no flag waver but I’d rather have the monarchy than another prick politician only interested in re election and lining their pockets with back handers. At least they bring in tourist money, plus Charlie boy was highlighting  the environment long before it was cool.

The Queen's crown was given its own car last week.

Charles sat on a golden, jewel encrusted throne and spoke about social housing and "tough times" which we are all experiencing. 

Their nephew (and most likely others) are quite obvious nonces, and are able to be bailed out by the head honcho whenever needed. 

I hope in my lifetime that the monarchy falls. I just don't see what need there is for them in this day and age. The tourism shout means zilch, empty Buckingham Palace and allow tourists in for a fee to take a look around and I guarantee there's more money generated from that than a few arl bags living within those four walls.

What the fuck has this got to do with Glasto announcements?

Is Williams green not likely before the full line up now? Hoping for 1 or 2 as yet unannounced acts there. Shame were brilliant last time so hope they return, also loving working mens club right now and will be made up if they are playing. Viagra boys would be top of my list but I think we would probably know if they were coming by now..

It's only had...one? announcement of its own. Don't expect one before the full line-up drop. Paging @Gnomicide to thread for the definitive info.
