Metal/heavy music at Glastonbury

There are so many great UK metal and hardcore bands now that there really needs to be more on the bill. Obviously I would love some larger acts but seeing Employed To Serve, Jamie Lenman and Venom Prison last time out was so great. Now get Urne, Palm Reader, Bossk, Boss Keloid, Conjurer, Dvne, Hellripper and Green Lung on!

I really hope the Scum stage is back this year. Venom Prison have come on leaps and bounds since their appearance in support Gojira would love to see them back. Svalbard would be a good shout this year, or While She Sleeps. Would love to see Cattle Decapitation who fit the eco-vibe of the Festival but probably are not widely known outside underground death metal circles.

I too hope Turnstile are doing an IDLES, a late night Truth stage performance for them would be awesome.

Talking about the eco-vibe, Heaven Shall Burn would be a nice fit as well.

I know this is a terrible source, but I saw a post on Glasto Chat the other day claiming someone had insider info that Ghost are playing. Thoughts?

That would be so fun! I checked out oh my god it's the church yesterday, would love to fill my Glastonbury with faux religious ceremonies.

Ehh I think they’re much too big. Aren’t they like headlining arenas and festivals these days?

Yup. I guess I could see them as sub/third on Other, or 4th down the Pyramid? Not sure what other slots could hold them, they'd get a mighty crowd

I mean, I guess if they really wanted to play and reached out to the festival to do so then their placing wouldn’t be too much of a problem. Third or fourth down Other like BMTH have done wouldn’t be too outrageous. Maybe stick em against Diana for a rock/metal alternative. I don’t see it happening, but we’ll see.

Opposite Diana Ross on the Other would make a lot of sense to try and split the crowd a fair bit: I’d also like Ghost to have a secret full on death set on the Truth stage at 4am please

Would it?

They deliberately try and put big acts opposite each other in order to not have everyone turn up at the same stage - that legends slot is particularly tricky, cos it’s mid afternoon on the Sunday and will often be the busiest performance of the weekend. Put something really appealing to a specific subset of fans on at the same time at another stage, and you’ll draw away a good portion of them. It’s why I was watching Babymetal and BMTH when the world and his wife were at Kylie 👍

Babymetal were on a different day I thought, as I watched them

I am just wondering if there would be enough people who would normally see Ross that would go to Ghost instead, I just couldn't see it would be that many. I of course could be wrong. I would say Oliva Rodrigo would split the crowd

First time posting on here but how about While She Sleeps? Going to have a bit of a wider audience since getting airtime on Radio 1 and they are playing a run of festivals finishing on the Friday of Glastonbury. Could play the Saturday or Sunday before heading off on their Oz tour

Architects are touring early may, then have a random date in Finland at the end of June, so maybe they'll be announcing a few festival dates?

I'd love to see Electric Wizard, Loathe and Code Orange who are all around in June. Deftones is never gonna happen but just imagine it.

Architects seem like a great fit for me, seeing them next weekend for the 50th time or something 

I really dislike while she sleeps, the only artist I've blocked on Spotify as they keep appearing on my playlists. Never understood how they are so popular 

Didn't realise code orange were around in June, will check that out 

Would like to see some names from slam dunk appear like electric callboy, caskets, Spanish love songs, nova twins 

Also agree deftones are the absolute dream on other

You into Loathe mate? By the sounds of things they'd be right up your street.

 

Course! Saw them at download 2021. They were great minus some sound issues. Think they have new material this year

Yeah I've heard they have new stuff on the way, Connor left which is a bit worrying because he added so much to their sound, but they were pretty great when I saw them in Brum in December.
