Secret sets 2022


FloorFiller

Recommended Posts

Taking my sister this year, and she's utterly clueless... she text me over the weekend:

'I think Fleetwood Mac are going to show up, but I think it's rumours'

I replied, nice joke!

she didn't understand, and said it's rumours that she read online somewhere

Proper partridge stuff that

According to now at least 2 people I know that are working on site this week:

Paul McCartney will bring on Harry Styles and Elton John, possibly others.

Secret Sets are more uncertain (secret) but Paolo Nutini has apparently been floating around.

Harry Styles has a show that night so most certainly bollocks.

Edit: wait, maybe not? Always thought he was booked up all weekend other than Friday but seems that may not be the case according to his tour dates.

Quick reminder that George Ezra has the current number one album.  He's incredibly popular, just not with people who obsessively follow these things.  

He is indeed, really popular with the general public at large, his set will be rammed and the people in the tent will love it. George seems like a really nice bloke, I'm just not that much of a fan of his music but I can see the appeal.

As much as I'm not a fan, I was singing Shotgun for the rest of the day after the sign was spotted.

George Ezra is more than a solid rumour - he’s basically confirmed

Jack White on the Park seems pretty nailed on too, as does Bastille WG Thursday.

Do you usually spend the entire weekend wandering from TBA to TBA hoping it’ll be somebody massive?

No but most other times it has been someone worthwhile. Plus we've already lost one WG secret set so just seems poor to have Bastille and someone who's played the last 2 year.

I duno why a pyramid headliner special guest would need to be widely known amongst people. Different for a full set were the stage people etc need to know.

There will be lots of famous faces side of the stage for Maccas set who could conceivably sing but are there as punters, is there a big box with ELTON JOHN MICROPHONE written on the side of it under the pyramid?

The other secret WG set was Metronomy who are playing elsewhere over the weekend anyway. Little was lost.

Edit - indeed it was Wolf Alice initially. Then was Metronomy. Then taken away.

It's funny that some folks think they're in a position to decide what is, or is not appropriate as a person in a TBC slot.

They can be anyone and that's part of the beauty of it. 

As with any act - it will delight some and disappoint others.

I think he's decent and enjoyed him live before but in all fairness this album is a huge drop off. Lacks the two huge lead singles (paradise/shotgun) that the last one had, instead theres what - green green grass? doesn't even compare!

Foals 2019 - played in 2016

Elbow 2017 - played in 2014

Literally can’t remember any of the other recent ones other than The Killers, but seems like you’re probably being pretty selective in your memory of the special guests not having played the festival recently. They’re almost always friends of the festival who play often.

Just the crowd where I was, and I couldn't find my mates. And I didn't particularly want to watch Foals anyway. Can't comment on the performance!

Yeah the park stage can be bad as there is a steep hill on the right of the stage as you look at it. Feels like the crowd is massive. 

 

The left side by the wall is the best place it'd high up as well

Elton is a decent shout.  London the day before, Brizzle the day after.

Are him and Macca even pals? And Elton certainly isn't with the festival having never played!

I have an irrational dislike of him that's entirely not his fault.

The very first time I went to parklife my friend had given me some sweets (for the very first time) to hold until later when we were to watch disclosure. Only I didn't hear the last part and ate the sweets at about 3pm and we wondered off to watch George Ezra. 

Cut to 30-40 minutes later and I'm reliably informed that during the slower songs I was yelling "it's not a fucking funeral George"

That experience has always really affected my impression of him.

😳

Elton is on my shortlist for a 2023 headliner, so maybe him getting a taste of the festival makes sense?  Plus he's probably driving past that day!

His single is playing every.fucking.hour. on the shit radio station at my work. I will be as far as possible from the tent at that time. Whoever plays at Avalon really.
