He didn’t seem to say when though - sounds like after the tickets so on sale which doesn’t make much sense.

they’ve done that in the past before, and of course Glastonbury never releases the lineup until after the tickets have gone on sale

Sunday has made the lineup more equal in terms of gender which is great

Ed Sheeran will be Saturday's big draw but I think Sundays line up on the main stage is a better mix of music tastes. I think most people will just be happy to be at a festival again though!

Incidentally, Lorde was one of my favourites over the years when she came to Hull.

I used to like it when they played musical mashups of bits of all the songs from performing artists as part of the announcements. Wasn’t expecting Lorre as the headliner but excellent choice

Even if with the case of no covid regulations whether it will be bit more open air in the tent and less covered. Do think Foals would’ve worked better on the Main stage I’d argue they are at headlining main stage point in career

Is anyone going to try and go to Coventry?

Not 100% but I'm in the Midlands so don't want to pass up the opportunity to go with it being fairly local so it'll be a shame if I miss out on tickets.

Always intrigued to see what the specialist music tent gets called each year. It's still the In New Music We Trust tent to me 😂

Seems to be the Future Sounds tent this year. It was "The 1 for New Music" in 2019 and "the other stage" in 2018 and "where it begins" in 2017. Slight identity crisis!

Seems Radio 1 are playing it safe with British acts this year.

think that’s fair comment on the safeness of the homegrown choices but its the case I imagine given the volatility of the covid rules and still in a global pandemic think the music and events teams want to have fair share of acts that if a new variant was to happen and saw travel restrictions

Think its credit of the talent on the UK music scene that we have a festival with such commitment to strong music talent and with the coronavirus pandemic it maybe some of the acts first festivals. I’m pleased of how the music and events team got the lineup without many crossovers with Glasto

They did send out links to special Happy Hour mixes to those going. Seems new to this year. Not the same, but...

Big Weekend is going to be fun for the DJs. It must be a while since they've been able to mix without restrictions. And it'll be very different to 2019 when you had the likes of Annie Mac, Grimmy, Phil Taggart, Maya Jama and Dev.

Including Huw Stephens. 

Considering that theres future soul, chillest show, future dance it wouldve been good if they announced that there would be 1 soul spotlight artist on Future Sounds stage giving Victoria Jane’s show bit of content a few piano session and maybe run a Piano Session Introducing event on BBC Introducing stages across festivals like R&L, R1BW, GLAST as cross BBC INTRO + RELAX Promo.

Think it will be good to hear presenter like Jack Saunders presenting from Big Weekend as for an event like that he’s got the needed energy and enthusiasm that will carry it with doing interviews and such. Maybe will hope to hear him or even see him doing Glasto coverage later this summer with Clara Amfo.

Think presenter like Greg James will be excited to get back out there as he works on the listener interaction and can tell likes being involved in events where he can chat with listeners.

Jordan at the station for 6 years. Will be the first time with such household recognition as will be more name and face recognised from TV too

I do wonder who’ll they’ll have hosting. I’d be very hyped to see Jordan/ Vick or Greg.

This about TV or Radio could see chances of Clara Amfo and Jack Saunders being involved
