I thought Sam Smith was a tennis commentator.
I thought she was a Yorkshire Brewery.

I would laugh if it was Justin Bieber or One Direction to headline on Saturday.
Well you could try and get a bookie to take that bet as you would get good odds but its not all that important - I have been going for the past 35 years { and not missed any } and there is many years I never see any of the main acts.

I'm sure there'll be a lot of bigger acts to be announced soon. A few obvious names are lacking, such as Sam Smith, Ellie Goulding and Katy B.
They shouldn't have mainstream artists there imo. Most people that attend Glastonbury (or festivals in general) are rock fans, and they don't like that kind of music. Look what happened when Jay-Z was there.

Looking at the Wikipedia article, they had a few pop/dance/R&B acts there last year (Dizzee Rascal, Professor Green, Rita Ora, Laura Mvula, Chase & Status, Example, Azealia Banks, Public Enemy, Major Lazer, Maverick Sabre). So maybe there'll be another 10 or so mainstream artists there again, but I don't see the point of having any tbh.

M.I.A playing, worth the ticket price alone.

There was a tweet going round a few days ago about JLo playing her biggest UK performance soon. Some people were speculating that she's playing Glastonbury.

Has Glastonbury suddenly become an MOR chavfest?

Not suddenly, no.

I just don't understand this snobbery when it comes to music and festivals. I can understand why people would support Glastonbury being more geared to rock music considering that's how it's been since it began, but to deny it of having any 'mainstream' acts is ridiculous.

Glastonbury is not known solely as a rock festival. That's what festivals like Download and Sonisphere are for. Glastonbury to me, and I'm sure many others, should have variety seeing as it's one of the biggest and most publicised festivals in the world, and certainly the biggest in the UK.

Music has evolved since Glastonbury began. The rock music market isn't as big as it used to be. And line ups should reflect that in some ways. I'm not saying Glastonbury should go down the V Fest route and essentially become a pop festival, but it shouldn't adhere to the snobbery that so many rock fans seem to adhere to.

I really dont get them. Anonymous. Empty 'epic' tuneage without any distinctive features.

and that name is woeful.
Agree with both comments, I don't get the fuss, a friend of mine is a fan and I had to endure two hours of them last night I felt extremely miserable afterwards

That really would be scraping the barrel on Glastonbury's part. If they were going to go down that route, they could at least get an actual star like Rihanna.

I reckon Prince is the big name yet to be announced.

Since I've been coming here I've noticed 'mainstream pop' acts are just as bad. Here's some comments I've noticed on here recently; 'Mojo is a magazine for white boys who can't dance.' 'Laura Marling is bloody awful because I've never heard of her.' (The logic in that one's hilarious don't you think?). 'How dare 'Indy' fans slag off the X Factor? How dare they??' 'The Who are past it, the sixties are over. Time for them to make way for One Direction.'

Yeah but those comments are coming from people who don't have a clue about music. "Mainstream" of course covers the likes of One Direction but it also covers many credible acts who would be appreciated on the Glastonbury stage just as much as rock acts.

They're actual acts names. Haddaway and Dr Alban are 90s eurodance cheese.

there was a false alarm about the fence - some idiot claimed he saw it but turns out he is not local and just ' thought he had seen it ' via the webcam which would be a surprise as last year it started going up 20th of May

Not sure if that is a tounge in cheek answer or not. If not then it's not T4 on the beach!!
Ellie Goulding and Sam Smith now confirmed. Told you.

Has Glastonbury suddenly become an MOR chavfest?
2014 and people are still throwing around the word 'chav'? Wow! In response to your nonsensical question: no.

'Hipsters' is usually the term directed towards people at Glastonbury. Along with phrases such as 'Only old people can afford it these days" which means Glastonbury is full of aging hipsters. A term needs thinking of for that. Greysters or something much better

It's a great word to use when it feels entirely appropriate. From its beginnings as a retaliation against and rejection of the commercialised, big-business side of the music industry, Glastonbury seems to be turning into little more than a big PR exercise for manufactured acts that seem to exist mainly as figureheads for ad campaigns.
