NME.COM readers speak out about controversial line up
Yesterday NME.COM exclusively posted the full line up of Glastonbury.
Fans have flooded NME.COM with their opinions on the line-up this year.
Benj 1364 summed up the mood of some fans when he wrote: “Glastonbury needs to have a big re-think!! They are scraping the barrel now! Michael and Emily SORT IT OUT.”
Ricardonal said: “This line-up is shocking. Last year Glasto had the likes of The Killers, Arctic Monkeys, Kasabian, Kaiser Chiefs, Arcade Fire to name a few. There are a few good bands here but for me the best line-up this summer has to be Reading. Glad I?m going there instead.”
Other readers commented on the fact they were glad they didn’t register for tickets this year. Flumphert said: ?Due to commitments (I) didn?t register this year. Thank fuck I didn?t either cos the lineup is atrocious.? Matt Paradise said: ?Boy am I glad I didn?t bother buying a ticket- that?s pretty awful , so bland.?
Jamesheal wrote: ?What a joke?Glastonbury is definitely going to be a warm up for a proper festival.?
However, there were plenty of positive comments.
gazmassie noted the number of newer bands playing: ?Good to see some awesome bands playing on the other stages i.e Vampire Weekend, MGMT, Black Kids, Neon Neon?Thank God Glasvegas are kicking the whole thing off.?
Meanwhile Swoosh said: “Better than Reading/Leeds . Quite a bad year across the board. But I think this is the best line-up plus Glastonbury is more than just music – it’s the experience?I can?t wait.?
Jordiep07 stood by the line-up commenting: “I don’t see why people always have to find a reason to slate Glastonbury just because it’s the most famous festival around. OK, the line up’s been better, but hey, this is a good line-up.?
Mr_gamgee said it was more about the experience of the festival than the line-up, commenting: “I have a few things to say to those who are dissing Glasto because of the line-up…1) How fickle are you if you’re letting a single act put you off going to an amazing festival that doesn’t need one single headliner to be worth going to? 2) Poor line-up? You obviously haven’t got a clue. At the cost of ‘amazing headliners’ you now have a fantastic amount of even more brilliant smaller bands, I’m going to be stupidly spoiled for choice.

Wilsonio added: “Some people need to get a grip because none of the festivals are that great! The fact is?there isn’t enough decent bands in the world at the moment!”
Natty123 declared: “I can’t believe people are saying they are disappointed with the line-up – I think its a great line-up. I can’t believe John Mayer is playing the Pyramid!!!! People will have a good time no matter what, there is something for everyone! Bring it on I say!!!”
