McFly and the sugababes went down very well this year (along with Mel C's rammed dj set), so i ask who do people think will be booked next year (if anyone) for the big pop acts on a random small stage slot?

I'd like All Saints personally!

Goes without saying, but if they got a second crack at a reunion run again - they appear to be off if not down for the count right now, I think - then Busted would be a hoot.

That being said, wouldn't mind Charlie Simpson digging out that first Fightstar record again.

Erasure have the bangers to secure either a decent slot on El Pointo or a late one on West Holts.

Erasure would be a dream fourth down on the Pyramid on a Saturday afternoon - effectively the same time as the Legends slot, and with enough singalong hits to go with it.

Tears for Fears interesting. Could command as high as third on the Pyramid, or could be an Other opener on the Friday.

Tears for Fears and Simple Minds nailed their recent tours.

Have not seen Tears for Fears this year, but saw them on the last arena go-around before Covid-19. Was a short-ish show but absolute bliss.

Simple Minds also acing it. They're at the BBC Radio 2 event this year - moved from London to Leeds, and with a weaker bill on the whole - so yet to sell out.

They play some pretty big gigs these days. They'd command a decent slot.

And I would be there for that. really seems possible they could be there next year. Maybe 3rd or 4th on pyramid? Or headlining Park?

I refuse to think about this further. Was supposed to see TFF at Shepherd's Bush on Monday - their most-intimate UK for decades? - and I had to pull out due to sickness. *sob*

Simple Minds are an odd one. Too big for a minor slot at Glastonbury, but not known enough by the kidz for a big one? Great musicianship these days, with none of the late-80s pomposity...
