Glastonbury 2019


#221

Depends who else they get but reckon if they went safe with the other 2 headliners (macca and Arctic monkeys or something) they might go for Kendrick. He’s absolutely massive, a critical darling and apparently good live. Only thing that holds him back is not having the crossover hits that the other 2 hip hop headliners have had


#222

Is he massive though? I’m not sure he’d pass the ‘has my mum heard of him?’ test


#223

The format recently has been newish British act, older British act and wildcard. Could see some sort of The 1975/Bruno Mars/The Cure type situation.


#224

Almost like music is consumed in different ways now innit. He was the 4th most streamed artist on Spotify last year, and damn is the 10th most streamed album ever. I’d say that qualifies as being massive, even if that doesn’t translate to being ubiquitous


#225

Are they big enough? What sort of venues do they play on tours?


#226

The O2 apparently. Same place Marcus and the Mumfords are playing next time round…


#227

Blimey. Fair enough, pretty good that nowadays bands that aren’t your bag can get really big and completely pass you by and you just don’t have to listen to them (barring Ed sheeran obviously)


#228

What, people can listen to music…through computers???

I just think his audience is different to the Glastonbury pyramid stage headliner audience, that’s all.


#229

Kendrick Lamar wont be headlining Glastonbury


#230

Fame Academy’s own Lemar on the other hand…


#231

Drake would be a better fit for the festival anyway. Kendrick for Prima please :grin:


#232

Was toying with suggesting this last night, but feared I might be run off the boards.

Drake headlines Glastonbury

  • Hell Yeah, Fucking Right!
  • Pack up your tent, we’re going home

Just hold on…


#234

Sometimes Glastonbury is great in giving you the opportunity to see something you’d quite like to but wouldn’t pay for. Drake is one of those. Also one of the few biggest pop stars on the planet at the commercial peak of his career. Why not?


#235

I’m just hoping for the Cure. :grinning:


#236

Kendrick won’t be doing it. The 1975, Muse and someone else (probably Macca) is a good shout.


#237

It’ll be The Cure, not Muse.


#238

Macca, Drake and The Cure would be good as far as Glastonbury goes


#239

1975 hardly seem to have the crosd generational appeal that most headliners have for this tho?


#240

I thought their last album was pretty good and had a few big crossover singles on it. The bigger problem about them headlining is I don’t think they’re actually very good as a live act.
