Glastonbury 2019


#351

For a first announcement its decent. Neneh Cherry and Miley Cyrus will be fun


#352

It’s actually a pretty good lineup, I’m just cross Primavera have an infinitely better one.


#353

I’d honestly like to give my ticket back over that line up but there’s no way the wife will let me.

Hopefully it’ll be sunny and it won’t matter.


#354

If Miley didn’t play Party in the U.S.A. I’d be furious


#355

Anyone complaining about this first announcement can and should sell me their ticket.


#356

There was a BBC Radio interview with Robert Smith last year and they asked him about Glastonbury and he said it was unlikely as The Cure had always had a bad experience every time they had played Glastonbury.


#357

If she’s not visibility tripping balls I’ll be furious


#358

thought she was sober these days?


#359

Not going but plenty there I haven’t seen and would be interested in (Chemicals brothers, Janelle Monae, Vampire Weekend, The Cure). Good announcement imo


#360

This is a very good line-up.


#361

Same as always innit… when they announce every stage all the interesting/new stuff will be buried away in the line up some where. Hope everyone has a great time.


#362

It’s alright, and there’s obviously plenty to see and loads else to do etcetc, but I think by Glastonbury standards that’s a pretty boring announcement. Normally I’m green with envy when the lineup gets announced if I’m not going, but no such feelings this time round.


#363

I think this is a really strong line up, nice to see a diverse set of headliners!

EDIT: oh wait, are Janet and Kylie actually headliners?


#364

Nope, Kylie is in the legends slot on Sunday. She’d be much better than the Killers :confused:


#365

Ah, yeah that makes no sense.

At least they’re given equal billing on the poster I guess?


#366

I definitely think of the Legends slot as a 4th headliner, isn’t that the general consensus? Their name goes on the t-shirt too.


#367

Liam not getting top line billing shocker!?

Also in other weird billing news, that suddenly looks a long way down for Interpol :confused:


#368

Glastonbury doesn’t really put weighting on acts position in the line-up the same way other festivals do, beyond the top couple of lines.


#369

Adjacent to Friendly Fires, who no one has listened to, or even been remotely aware of, since 2009. Strange one.


#370

Heard a decent new track by them today. Probably got a new commercial success on the way.
