Why is half of it a backing track? 
 

Straight to Foals. 

I haven’t gone straight to Foals but I was wondering this. We were very hyped to see what she’d be like but we’re a bit underwhelmed so far

Do American artists just see Glasto as another festival. They never seem to tailor their sets to the event. Think there's a lot of good reasons to focus on British acts - two American headliners in one year is naff.

 

Half of her music is a backing track and her singing isnt exactly setting the world on fire.

 

This kind of pop never really translates to festivals tbh.

She’s clearly very popular and good at what she does, but you can’t come to Glastonbury and mime your way through half a headline set on the pyramid stage. 
Think this one was maybe a year or two too soon. 
 

Foals already better.

Sam Fender definitely showing why he has such a good live reputation off the back of his most recent tours. I can kind of understand why he might not have originally had this slot - an hour is a long time to fill with just 2 albums behind you're belt both of which do contain some fluff - playing Howdon Aldi Death Queue' a B-Side (although a well regarded one) and putting Spit of You and Seventeen Going Under mid-set (instead of b2bing it as a closer with Hypersonic Missiles).

 

Way too early in the weekend to be using future headliner, but he's definitely a future headliner based on that. Another album behind that's even remotely as successful as his last 2 and he deserves a Friday night. 

Your theory about 2 albums not being enough for a headline slot doesn't seem to be stopping that girl headlining the Pyramid. 

For the record, I have no idea who Billie Eilish is.

Anyway, I'm off to watch Primal Scream.

Hope you all have a great weekend. Think of it as 'Virtual Glastonbury' or 'GFH' in this post-Covid era.

I'm just happy it's back.

I'll be watching Foals too, but unfortunately with the sound quality of a transistor radio! And let's face it, Foals need to be LOUD!

Absolutely! Other half told me to turn it down, he can fuck right off 🤣

After a busy day… I’m in.
Billie does nothing for me but fuck it’s good to see a Pyramid headliner ‘live’. Moved swiftly on to Little Simz which is probably where I would be - West Holts looks great, even if not that busy. Though I’d probably equally enjoy Foals if my partner was as in to them - glad I don’t really have to worry about clashes and compromises!

The joy of Glastonbury-on-sofa!

I wonder how the BBC are going to try and big this up?

 

Mining half the songs.

Some of the cringiest crowd work I've seen. I know she's probably not done as much live work as she's wanted but crikey.

 

It also highlights a big issue with the streaming era pop she sort of belongs too. It's meant to background music, Glasto are going to have to put more effort into working out who'll be good live. Sam Fender was way better than this.
