Would they not potentially be perfect for one of the Thursday slots on William’s Green?

Well that would be amazing but I’d have said Other or JP more their vibe. I’ve been dropping ‘see you at Glasto’ into their twitter comments recently but they haven’t really risen to it so I’m thinking the dream may be over.

Some on social media complaining about the line up, not what they were wanting blah blah. So here’s some advice and good news for them, there’s still tickets available for the Isle of Wight, fill yer boots.
Meanwhile I’m looking forward to the greatest show on earth.

I feel like I knew less artists on this lineup than I have in previous years, 2019 I knew a lot more people... BUT, that's a great thing, I've already discovered artists I like by looking them up from the lineup, and I'm looking forward to discovering more! 

For me the lineup is great, a perfect balance of names I know and want to see, and new (to me) music to discover.

Isle of White line up is worse, but also kind of similar?

Frustrating mix of decent enough, radio friendly acts, but that play literally everywhere all the time / aren't really very "current" (Jessie Ware, Blossoms, Vaccines) and acts that feel a bit gimmicky/past it (Happy Mondays, Kasabian, The Kooks, Shaggy). 

Really glad to be going to Glastonbury for the first time...but it'll probably be the last if this lineup is an indication of how it usually is.

It must be annoying being constantly told its not about the lineup but its genuinely true once you're there. Thats what makes it such a unique place/festival. Its actually not comparable to places like IOW or similar.

Of course its nice to have your favourites on the lineup but you've got to remember that Glastonbury caters for everyone, and does so on a shoe string budget giving tons away to charity at the same time.

I'm pretty certain you'll be blown away by the place so just go into it open minded 😄.

Yeah, I'm 100% certain I'll enjoy being there and soaking up the atmosphere with friends and strangers alike. 

But I'm going through clash finder and there's like 4 acts I want to see on Saturday for example? Just bit of a shame. I imagined that because this was the defacto 50th anniversary, it would be filled to the gills with new and current music from UK and abroad, undeniably legendary acts, with the odd obvious crowd pleaser thrown in. 

The fact that it caters to everyone and doesn't really have the same budget or curation as other festivals is becoming really clear to me. But it seems this one is worse than other years? The stage that had Wu Tang Clan in 2019 has a...brass covers band.

Glastonbury always seems to swing between top heavy and undercard heavy, this year I don't think anyone can argue the headliners are anything but top drawer, even if they are not to your personal taste.

If you have 4 must see acts on one day is fine, gives you a chance to have a bimble and see what happens. 

You might not even end up watching the four you had planned, I know it sounds strange but that's Glastonbury

As long as those 4 acts aren't clashing I think you'll find thats a pretty nice day out with the size of the place, it will take you a while to walk to each stage etc (assuming they're on different stages). Spend the rest of the day checking out new music and just following whatever vibe. The night time takes care of itself.

I wouldn't say its worse than previous years no - no doubt over the years I've been going there have been some lineups more suited to my tastes, and others not. It just varies year on year. You're also comparing a headliner to a band who are way down the running order.

I think given the popularity of the place, people assume it is this utopia of music festival lineups but it isn't possible because of the model Glastonbury have. But I'd much rather they have that model than a commercial festival who pay their headliners millions, but make their punters queue for bar tokens and force them to camp separate to the "arena".

Yeah those are all fair points, really. Tbh I’m looking at it as more of a camping holiday / chance to hear The Long and Winding Road while buzzing off my tits, than an actual music festival at this point.

I’ve been to approx 15 Glastos and always make a list of who I want to see.  In reality, I end up seeing about 5/6 bands/acts that I wanted to see and will often sacrifice going to see someone that I’ve wanted to see for ages because at the time I was having a lot of fun doing something else, usually something completely random that Glasto continuously keeps on offering up.

It really isn’t about the line up.  The line up is just an excuse to put on the rest of the stuff.

Look at how much fun you have on Wednesday when next to nothing is on.

The headliners are generally brilliant tbh, it’s all the shite like The Hoosiers, Elbow, McFly and The Libertines and all the soundalike radio 6 bands like foals etc I’m disappointed by. 

VAR check in progress: Troll confirmed

I echo this and i have found quite a few new artists who will fit in nicely to those i already know and have been listening too. It dosn't help however when the fuckers have clashed 4 of them on the same time and the same day !! Also Fontaines clashing with D Ross. But because its D Ross and the legends spot i have to be there. As a 60yo who drew up listening to that music how could i not.

I generally look at the line ups and think I don't know most of these. (Not that it matters.)

When I look back at the line ups of previous years I think "wow that's a great year" 

I have just done it with 2016, as I didn't get tickets for that one and again thought wow! Now at the time I was like that's not a bad year to miss out.. 

This is where Glastonbury gets it right, they don't catch falling swords. You look back and they generally have it spot on.. 


They are pretty good at what they do! Who would have thought?!?
