Festival Rumours!

Postby sleepflower on Thu Jan 25, 2007 9:38 am

GLASTONBURY

Eavis has strangely confirmed 3 acts. Arcade fire, Arctic monkeys and Bjork!!! Though she is not headlining. I cannot wait.

Kasabian have announced they are playing, but no Confirmation from Eavis.

The who headlining one night as pete townsend admitted, but who the other act are, Eavis has said they are the biggest band in the world, and that they are teasing him saying it could be their last ever gig.
Now, from that I doubt it will be a band reforming, as their would be no teasing, it would be an expected one off. So who is the biggest band? I know people say U2 are, Rolling Stones have been wanted for a long time but apparently always wanted too much money, but maybe? Also we know Radiohead are pretty much his favourite band. Muse are also in line to take over the world.

I'm told that the "biggest band in the world" title currently refers to either Coldplay or U2.

Not in terms of sales, compared to those two.

I guess it could also mean Pink Floyd. But the chances of that are quite minimal.

Apparently the Who and Rolf Harris (not together) will also appear on the line-up. Or so the BBC would have me believe...

I think that Oasis may show up again too, but judging by there dismall effort the year before last i won't be watching them again...

I was afraid of the fact it might be coldplay. They played last time and I was very dissapointed. Sort of thing I think they would joke about too.

So...

Coldplay
Radiohead
U2
Oasis
Muse
Rolling Stones

I think Killers are not big enough for that title, though would be unsurprising to see them. There is also no fear of them halting their career.

Same with Arctic Monkeys.

Still hopin gfor Smashing Pumpkins... Them for the third headliner?

I like her stuff. She could be anywhere on site though. Almost every band will play somewhere!

Last time my favouriteplace was the little guardian acoustic tent. So small. I saw a few acts including Emiliana Torrini and Nine Black Alps.

Oddly NBA were about half an hour late coming on, I was right at the front and they announced they had argued with staff cos they wouldnt let them use amps, but they dragged on all the kit and played a vicious set. His voice started to go at the end and he looked in physical pain but never gave up.

No.

Smashing Pumpkins would put me in a panic rush to get tickets.

She is incredibly adorable. Saw her at glasto, V and shepherd bush empire. I love how she tells stories between songs and her voice just makes me melt.

Also Muse are definitely huge here, and fromwhat I have heard, are getting an incresing following stateside.

Good point Baxter! The Police are having a reunion tour, which I'd pay to see way before U2 or Coldplay.

I saw a jimi hendrix cover band recently, i was just in the pub at the time, and the guy could well have been Lenny Kravitz. I went and spoke to him and said "Why don't you do a lenny Kravitz tribute or something?"

he said "what would i call myself though??"

and the only thing that came into my mind was "Lenny crabsticks??"

he didn't like the idea...

I like the idea of seeing the beatles this year though, i think they played it last time too??

Nah, it won't be Muse or Oasis.... we're talking about the *world* rather than UK / USA.

U2 or Rolling Stones look the most likely, with some pretty good odds on either Radiohead or Coldplay failing that, I reckon.


Radiohead or the Stones I reckon I'd be excited by, but neither of the other two....

Im with you on Radiohead or stones, coldplay and U2 annoy me.

I agree with discounting Oasis, but Muse are getting quite big. Still, no chance of them suggesting their last gig, same with U2 actually.

Hmm, so radiohead, stones or coldplay I reckon in my top list of expected headliner.

Friday: The Who
Saturday: Biggest band in the world
Sunday: ???

I actually cannot believe Bjork is not headlining. It really must be someone great to follow her in the line-up. Bjork then Radiohead? could it really be that good!!!

I dunno, I imagine that Bono might announce that he wants quit U2 in order to dedicate the rest of his life to flying around the world (mmm... carbon emissions!) being a smug Struggling Background Artist *full time*... Lord knows, he's got the money (and the ego) for it already.

V Festival's line up looks pretty promising this year.

The Killers, Kasabian, Foo Fighters, Snow Patrol, The Fratellis, The Kooks, Basement Jaxx, Lily Allen, The Coral, Babyshambles, Guillemots and Primal Scream should make for an entertaining weekend. Tickets are a bit steep this year though, nearly £300 a pair.

But if any of you guys get to Glastonbury or T in the Park, make sure you check out Arctic Monkeys. I saw them last night at a small secret gig and they were fucking awesome.
