    It got voted #1 in an online poll last year. Presumably, no other countries voted, because there's no way in hell Oxegen competes with Glastonbury or Benicassim or something.

    It's not even Ireland's best music festival, it's just the biggest.

    They are headlining the V Festival here in Oz - Killers, Snow Patrol, Human League and Madness. Frustrating, I think I'll go if I can get a comp ticket.
    Up Next: Cobra Starship, Gogol Bordello, Talib Kweli & Jean Grae

    they're this year's jack johnson. I'd put $100 on them having a contract like I'd still bet JJ did wherein the act plays for a much lower than normal booking fee in exchange for higher than normal billing. because there is no greater publicity or 'cred builder' these days for a band than headlining major festivals.

    It isn't like the killers haven't headlined a major International Music festival before:
    http://blog.q4music.com/glastonbury/...glastonbu.html
    THE KILLERS NAMED AS GLASTONBURY HEADLINERS
    The Killers will be headlining this year's Glastonbury festival, Q can exclusively reveal. They join the Arctic Monkeys and The Who as the Main Stage headliners.

    "We're really chuffed that we've got The Killers," Emily Eavis tells Q. "They broke through on the New Band stage in 2004 and came back the following year on the Main Stage, so they've come up through the festival. They're the right band to headline this year's festival."

    The Who's guitarist Pete Townshend confirmed that the veteran British band will be playing their first Glastonbury this year. They close the festival on Sunday night.

    "This chapter of the band is over in July 2007, so if you want to catch the new Who at their most effective for 20 years, come and join us," says Townshend.

    In addition to Björk's headlining appearance on The Other Stage, also strongly rumoured to be performing at this year's festival are: Lily Allen, Arcade Fire, Babyshambles, Bloc Party, The Chemical Brothers, the reformed Creedence Clearwater Revival, Daft Punk, Editors, The Fratellis, Happy Mondays, Hot Chip, Kaiser Chiefs, Kasabian, The Klaxons, The Kooks, Larrikin Love, The Magic Numbers, Paolo Nutini, Scissor Sisters, Super Furry Animals, The Twang and The View.

    As always, the full OFFICIAL Glastonbury line-up will be revealed by Q on 1 June.

    It probably won as it has a "Best festival awards - vote for us and win tickets" banner on the homepage. Bribery always works!

    I'd say March, I'm not a hundred percent though. My Bloody Valentine delayed the announcement last year, didn't they?

    I've applied to the crew I was working with last year again, but I'm not sure if they're even going this year. New economic climate and all...

    No, we didn't understand it either.

    Some drunken Canadian dude in a Bloc Party shirt kept apologising about it to everybody.


    Lavigne had pom poms.

    Seriously. I miss the good old days when bands that were much bigger in Europe than here were actually good.

    Hahahaha wow. Ireland is pretty weird. I have never even heard of Razorlight in my entire life.

    The funniest part, though, is that that's actually a great fucking lineup that I would totally go to if it was in California.

    I like how their festivals break down the lineup into stages.

    Most European festivals do this way before stage times are announced, so you at least have an idea of how things are going to run.

    is this a sign of festivals dying, or have they always shared the same headliner?
