I’d have thought The Smile are strong contenders for a Park secret set?

They're busy basically all weekend.

Arcade Fire after Win Butler announcement? No chance.

 

I think you mean Will.

Nah, think a lot of people just wrote it off due to how mental the crowds of people trying to get to see it would be and that was that. 

I agree that they’d probably draw an insane amount of people if word got out, but huge bands have done it before and it’s been okay so I wouldn’t be so quick to say it’s a total no-go.

That was me who had this info. Heard it from a talent booker at a rival festival.

It’d be tight but they finish their Saturday show at 7pm in Belgium and have Sunday free. Thom has some history of secret sets too

Fair play, if that’s true then that’s amazing for those going. I think they’ll defo do 2023 headlining. Tbf the killers did a small stage so why not I guess

I remain very skeptical despite the information. Mainly as I was at the Killers and I imagine AM would be so much worse crowd control wise. Howeverrrr JP is a tent with limited capacity and Park would be safer. And I do think that AM's popularity has dwindled with the younger 18-25 crowd.

Not so sure about that. Last album may not be getting regular plays at student club nights, but the bangers from before that will still be getting heavy rotation and the reception and almost instant sell out of them playing Reading/Leeds shows that they’re still very popular with that crowd. They’d draw an insane crowd if they did a secret set and the Park entrance would definitely have to get shut off at some point.

If it's true...how do I ensure I'm front bloody row?

Not at all. They are the most requested act at Reading in the comments year after year - still hugely popular.

The Killers are about as big as it gets to be honest, can't see it being much worse than that. Only thing that could make it bad is that AM have been difficult to see recently, they hardly toured their last album (everywhere sold out etc) whereas The Killers are always about so people might jump at the chance to see AM more.

There's been a lot of chat on here in the past that secret sets don't work as well these days as so many people find out about them on social media, etc.

When do they typically get leaked on social media? Is it during the festival for example? Or does it become obvious much earlier than that?

I thought were specific things set up to leak them during the festival?

There's a secret glasto twitter account AFAIK, but I wasn't sure if the secret sets became widespread knowledge a fair bit before that

Depends on the set, some feel like they're known weeks before the festival, others come out over the weekend but we (at least the people paying attention to eFests) I think tend to have a good idea before the festival starts.

When was the last genuinely secret set from a reasonably big name, no leaks beforehand? Must have to go back a fair way.

Pretty sure nobody had a clue about Thom and Jonny in 2010. Massive surprise that one. Not sure if there have been any big ones since that have gone un-leaked beforehand but maybe there’s something I’m forgetting.

AF at the Park would be absolutely insane. If there’s any sniff of that happening come the festival then count me in. 

Absobloodylutely.

There was someone the other day saying they'd heard it was Arctic Monkeys on the Park, did anything else come from that? Arcade Fire would be the best result here and not too unrealistic either.

I can’t see that happening for safety reasons. Would be worse than Radiohead!

I found out from a thread on here.
