The biggest piece of shit and the woman who treats her workers like shit. I can see that.

Terrible headliners. Luckily there's about a thousand other stages people can go watch at the same time.

Uhm, what did you expect and why do you care? It's as generic as ever and if you're excited for main stage bands - something is seriously wrong with you. I've been to 40+ festivals and I don't think I've seen more than 20 mainstage bands full sets. This is why european festivals are the best, because the promotors really know their shit and book bands of all genres/sizes, spreading them out over all stages. Also, how awesome is it when a band who played a great set at some smaller stage gets a shot to open up the main stage the next year? I love that.

Beyonce is kinda cool actually. U2 i already knew and Coldplay was revealed last week i think? Having both those bands of similar sort of style ("stadium rock") really turns me off the festival this year, they need more of a 'hard rock' headliner imo. Or Prince, every festival could do with more Prince....

I never go to Glastonbury anyways, so it's no skin off of my nose. Plenty of other festivals I've been to and still go to annually.

From what I've heard, Beyonce puts on a pretty rocking live performance.

I'd love to see U2, but I find the Beyonce choice odd. Not that people wouldn't like her, but to see those 3 headliners, she is clearly the odd one out. I would have expected it to be Muse or something.

But I'm not going, so if the fans want it, more power to them, I guess.

Complaining about Beyonce is absolutely ridiculous. She's a powerhouse performer. I would kill to see the "I Am..." stuff live.

And I wouldn't use the word "generic" to describe her as a festival headliner.
