Other than the Stones and Primal Scream (!!!!), kind of a meh lineup. Funny to see how low Phoenix are....
Kind of a slap in the face to Coachella - you may have The Stone Roses and blur (who have already played Glastonbury 4 times), but we were able to book The Rolling Stones, and one of your headliners is on our fifth stage (presumably against Mumford & Sons).
I don't know what you guys are talking about, that Glastonbury lineup is stacked. And yeah, the Arctic Monkeys have been headlining festivals in England since like their second album. It doesn't make any sense but it's nothing new. I love that they're technically listed before The Stones which is just batshit insane.
I think they're listed in that order because Arctic Monkeys will headline Friday, The Rolling Stones Saturday, and Mumford & Sons Sunday.
Those dates are also way to conveniently wrapped around Coachella's dates. No reason for a late add, but that would be so freakin awesome.
That's what I've been thinking since Fallon announced that Prince would tour the west coast three weeks ago. Prince is open on Saturday (and Sunday) of both weekends and would slide perfectly into that headlining slot above the XX and Phoenix.
10. Macklemore & Ryan Lewis 9. Preservation Hall Jazz Band 8. The Tallest Man On Earth 7. Dirty Projectors 6. Divine Fits 5. Built to Spill 4. Vampire Weekend 3. Elvis Costello & the Imposters 2. The Postal Service 1. Andrew Bird
Fail my list if you choose, but I don't have much exposure to Sigur Rós or Primus. I intend on seeing both sets, and they might end up on my Top 10 Sets of the Festival list, but neither act is one of my most anticipated acts.
I am so in love with them right now. I was listening to my giant Sasquatch playlist on random last night and their songs kept being the ones that I was like "oh shit yes!". For the record, the complete opposite reaction kept happening with The Presets. Yuck, sorry Pea.
I have never enjoyed The Presets on record, but I loved the live performance of theirs I saw this last October and I look forward to seeing them again! So, even if you don't like any of their albums, still check out their live set!
