There isn't going to be a Glastonbury in 2012? :stunned:
And you know why? Because with the London Olympics the next month, there won't be enough portaloo's to go around. As bizarre as it sounds that is true.

Living in the States I know very little about Glastonbury. As far as the three headliners go is there a bigger sense of honor based on what night you are playing? For example, is closing out sunday night a bigger "event" then the closing out friday? Is saturday the big night to close? I guess what Im asking is what is the TOP top spot?

Saturday is definately the best spot and right at the heart of the festival. I would put Friday over Sunday but others might disagree

:eek::eek:

Although the idea of Glastonbury is appealing I could only manage it if I was teleported there for Coldplay. Must leave it to the young and/or hardy Coldplayers out there.

And I did have my sweet sweet moments with Coldplay at Liverpool in an intimate crowd of a mere 1000. But will see them in Canada again when they come here.
:rolleyes:

Welcome Roz:) Love your Avi Picture... So damn lucky!!!! I am one of the oldies here as well, but if I could go to Glastonbury I would:p I have to wait for some USA stops.

And we will finally meet! And we will go to all the Florida and California shows! And maybe throw in a Las Vegas trip, too!

Nope because of the Olympics.

Wow. :| It's kind of hard to imagine a year without Glastonbury. . . maybe the world is ending in 2012! :uhoh:
:p

That's actually kind of a funny reason, but it makes sense. :|

I think they usually take a year "off" every 5 years or so anyway to let the grass get healthy again, so the farm is due for that next year anyway (aside from the Olympics issue, of course, so it's good timing in that sense).

Thank you martinfan in the USA, I treasure my photos taken with Chris, Guy, Will and Jonny and had everything framed including my signed ROBTH cover with a lovely note from Phil. :p

Yeah Saturday is really the biggest slot and I'd take Friday over Sunday as well. Although I did think Coldplay would be doing Sunday after they did Friday and Saturday in 2002 and 2005 respectively.

But if Rolling Stones ain't doing it, who is?? Do Radiohead fans know when an album is coming out from them? Is Prince back in the rumours? I still wouldn't be surprised if it's the Rolling Stones. The S*n is full of bullshit 24/7 so I don't think I should even take this Coldplay rumour seriously.

Radiohead is a huge possibility still, but with no plans whatsoever, it's hard to speculate. An album has been expected from them for some time now, and even if they're planning a summer release, they could certainly do the same as Coldplay in 2002 and premiere the songs on the pyramid stage. Maybe I'm just being optimistic, but I'd put my money on Radiohead closing sunday.

no way Radiohead is playing. no one's heard a single rumour about them, and when it comes to speculation they're kings of the world. and ok, they're so fucking great, but don't think they'd dare to play Glasto as a one off....

There's a good possibility readiohead could be, what a line up that would be.
