are Arctic Monkeys really listed before the Rolling Stones?

Arctic Monkeys listed before The Rolling Stones on that poster. Interesting. I doubt Mick is very happy about that.

if I were Stones, I would pull out just for being listed after the Artic Monkeys.

they are listed that way, but probably those first three bands will headline on a different date
lineups are listed by stage

Arctics friday stones saturday mumford sunday is the rationale behind that sequencing

Maybe it was listed in order of relevancy to good music still being made.

eh if you're gonna list by date, you usually break it out that way so each date's headliner looks important relative to the next (like coachella does). this method of sequencing does seem to imply a heirarchy, although perhaps inadvertantly.

Man, say what you will about the Brits (bad teeth/body odor) but, damn, they know how put on a festival.

Nick Cave's hand got stuck in a glory hole, that's why it's all deformed now...

Sounds like a great festival but what is up with that crappy ass flyer. Looks like they cropped it out of Super Mario Brothers 2

Glastonbury website says tix are sold out. Besides the fact that its crazy expense to fest it up in the UK. $ looking weak.

Damn Nick, you doin the Siggy too!
Where's my bass at.

Nick Cave & the Bad Seeds should be first on the lineup. Easily the best band on that list.

Posted by Anonymous | March 27, 2013 10:02 PM

You're wrong, 10:02. Chic is the best band on that list.

Makes Coachella look like The Crossing Brooklyn Ferry or The Great GoogaMooga Fests.
