Ooh. Foo Fighters.

Reading and Leeds did very well to get such an edgy act.

Bet they’ve never played Glastonbury.


#202

Reading are outraged Stromzy isn’t doing a number there…


#203

He and Eavis have just done a number on Glastonbury…


#204

Are they more upset about that than getting the Glastonbury 2017 headliner?


#205

So Stormzy confirmed, Macca, The Cure strong rumours

Nothing leaps out from the latest rumours unless…

Nah won’t happen… Could it? They aren’t normally in the same hemisphere let alone the same farm…

Although the Beach Boys would be a bucket list


#206

Stormzy, Paul McCartney and the Cure would be hilarious, the newer crowd wanting edgy would be best to nip out to JRM’s pad nearby for something more daring…


#207


#208

I won’t even bother going in for the resale, if thats true its proper shite, I’d rather wear high heels for the whole weekend than see that shite.


#209

Probably best placed on the Trans thread maybe?

:lou_is_a_flirt:


#210

Kind of agree with you Baz, but then they could equally appear on The Other Stage.


#211

One feels the deflector shields are going to be fully powered and all in full working order if announced.

“Glasto isn’t and has never really been about the main acts, I want something edgy from a band that plays Ave Maria with their foreskins…”


#212

The other stage, more like another town would help the festival.


#213

The TV audience for Macca & Cure will be massive. tbh I normally only see 2 Pyramid headlines each time I go, I regret missing Beyonce for Queens of the Stone Age who were a bit too edgy for me, missed Blur (I think it was) for The Prodigy which was one of the best gigs I’ve seen

So perhaps more sensible would be I could appear at the Other Stage for Stormzy but then seeing as he is going to be the next big thing ever do I want to miss his breakthrough moment.
These are the joys of Glasto, decisions.
Nothing ever goes to plan!

Can’t wait, anything is better than another night in watching Netflix and Mrs D_P isn’t coming so I can behave my age for once!


#214

OK, I was on the University bus between campuses the other day and there were 2 students behind me discussing music and bands, they were generally discussing 80s bands, including the Cure, and what other 80s bands they should listen to.

I think the Cure would be mainstream for Glastonbury these days.


#215

I like the cure but this is the Southampton of Glastonburys, a gamble like Stormzy, a legend like Macca being Keegan but Keegan at Macca’s age and the Cure well what the fuck are they doing topping the bill?

Thats desperate shit.
Macca on the legends slot and the other 2 main stage day time Sat/Sun.


#216

I do hope Hacienda Classical get confirmed, they played here at Dubai Opera this weekend lot of pals went and danced themselves into stupor.
That’ll be the way to spend a Saturday afternoon by the Cider Bus
It cost the guys £80 For a 90 minute concert btw


#217

Why would you even be thinking of a resale when you’re off to New York?


#218

Because Glastonbury isn’t in April.


#219

OK that’s edgy

So is this.
(mind you I saw Snow Patrol here 7 years ago and they were fvcking superb)

Almost certainly means that both of them are not going to be headlining Glastonbury. The Hyde Park mob tend to tie their acts into exclusive headline arrangements, which is the main reason that the Killers ended up playing a secret set at the John Peel in 2017.

Brandon Flowers bitched about his berth at the time. Was never Glasto’s fault.
