Great point! Hadn't thought of that...

Usually I'd agree, but it could be at that point they were not the third headliner and what Dave was saying at that point could have been true.

They are having to plan this at such sort notice that things could have changed.
Indeed, hence subject to change ;) we agree!

Though for the record I still think it's very unlikely, just not impossible

I don't think Glastonbury will happen - not again so (relatively) soon, and bearing in mind Gorillaz headline slot the year after too.

I agree with you, it seems a bit too soon, has there been a Glasto headliner that was back so soon ( apart from Damon with Gorillaz)

Rem headlined in 1999 and then in 2003.

I think Radiohead were 97 and then 03 too.

Florence and the machine were rumoured to be headliners for glastonbury but has just been announced she's just another act. Now everyone on Twitter etc is saying its radiohead/blur as possible final headliner.. What does everyone think? Surely not glastonbury and hyde park in the same year again like last time?

I didn't think they would, and Dave confirmed that, and yet...

Reckon it might be them or Taylor Swift.

Taylor Swift can fuck right off. Mind you, if she is announced, I'll be signing no petition like the anti Kanye brigade, because I'm not a total prick.

It'd be quite neat though: one rock artist, one rap, one pop.

I'm not a fan of hers but it's a music festival. There should be a variety of music for a variety of people in my opinion

Ah yeah there is that I suppose! Raging I didn't manage to get tickets this year though. I'd love to see Kanye again.

Disagree, festivals like Glastonbury should be about bands, plenty of other events to see the likes of Taylor Swift at.

Ah that's bollocks imo. Nothing should be off limits at a music festival in terms of acts playing.

I think the more these festivals become more diluted, they make them less appealing to people as they try to cater for everyone and up not really hitting the mark for anyone.

I like festivals like Glastonbury, T in the Park, Leeds/Reading because they have always been about bands/artists that write and play their own music. Yes you get the odd curveball, but the more it is filled with pop artists the less appealing it becomes.

It might sound snobby, but there is plenty of other festivals and events for these artists to play at. I've always liked the spirit of indie at these festivals.

I'd be very surprised if Glastonbury had 3 American headliners. Likewise I'd be even more surprised if Blur were allowed to headline when they're already doing Isle of Wight festival.
