So inoffensive but so, so boring.
I would rank Ed Sheeran alongside any number of that illustrious group of British post-punk guitarists that used to be referred to as 'greatest of their generation', namely people like Andy Summers, Johnny Marr, John Squire, Bernard Butler, and Graham Coxon.

I think he's a musical genius, and I can't wait for Glastonbury now.

Glastonbury is so much more than just the headliners. Can't believe the palace fan who threw a hissy fit at this announcement and asked for a refund.

Have to admit to being pretty clueless about Sheeran's music. What makes him worth listening to?

80% of last week's top 20 featured a song by Edward Sheeran. His music gets played by all of the major radio stations, from Heart FM (damaged single women), Absolute Radio (damaged divorcee men), Heat (morons), Capital Radio (arrested development), Radio one (middle-class provincials) - basically, he's got cross-genre appeal and he's ruddy brilliant. And like Ellie Goulding, he's also connected in some very undefined way to the royal family.

In all serious, I would've liked to have seen Calvin Harris headline on the Saturday. He's been consistently brilliant now for about 12 years, and he specialises in top quality single records. If he was American and black...

There's a long list of singers & groups who have been massively popular. Doesn't mean their music is any good. Why is Sheeran different and why might he be remembered by future generations?

He's captured a zeitgeist though. Love him
Or loathe him personally,a lot of people love him and there's inherently something less distasteful to him as a person than say The 1975. Is his music any good? Nahh does it matter? Not really.

There isn't one reason there that makes him worth listening too.

You've described some people who listen to him, and the fact he's played in the radio is bollocks. That's all label politics.

The guy is inoffensive. Problem is, he's so inoffensive it offends me.

But as some one said. Glasto is more than the headliners

It does if your headlining one of the biggest music festivals in the world.

It's going to be so predictable.

Run of singles. Couple of album tracks. Bring out a "special guest" to appear edgy. Pretend one of his pedals is broken but carry on regardless to look "authentic". An "impromptu" cover, a ballad then some shit song to end.

He will say/sing absolute nothing if any relevance.

Foo Fighters and Ed Sheeran are about as generic in their respective genres as you can get. Nevertheless they will draw tens of thousands when there will undoubtedly be much higher quality acts on across the festival at the same time.

I can't deal with people criticising Radiohead though - those people have literally no idea what they are talking about, even if they don't particularly like them. Having one true headliner is enough for me.

That was me. It wasn't a hissy fit. The headliners are shite. Whilst there's admittedly a lot more to Glasto than the the headliners, that's the most boring, predictable set of headliners ever. It's Radiohead's 3rd headline slot. Coldplay have done 4 in 15 years - they just churn out the same old crap. I'm not taking 4 days off work & spunking 500 odd on that - I'd rather go on holiday abroad & lay on a nice beach somewhere. I'm selling my ticket back which is the normal procedure - what's the problem?

It comes down to personal taste of course.

Yes, Radiohead are playing for the third time but they haven't played in 14 years (which was widely accepted to be the best Pyramid headline set ever), have released numerous albums in the intervening period, all bar one being critically acclaimed.

The other two are bland in my opinion but the general Pyramid punters who camp out there all day regardless of who is on will be pleased. And as you quite rightly say, there will be loads else going on, absolutely loads. It actually looks like a pretty strong year based on the various rumours floating about.

Agreed - it's nothing against Radiohead or the Foo's either. Like you say, Radiohead are a great band & I have a lot of love for Dave Grohl. Those 3 headliners have just given me the hump - pathetic I know.

It'd just be nice to have a bit of diversity. Those 3 acts seem to be aimed at white middle class folk. It's just boring. My point is, back in '95 for example - Oasis headlining. Yeah they're 5 white blokes, but they'd have been kids tuning in from council estates up North watching that, being truly inspired - if they can do it, why can't they? Rather than some 25 year old architect from Surbiton swaying along to Radiohead in his living room whilst sipping a glass of Pinot. Kanye West is mainstream but at the least him headlining shook things up a bit.

I hear Wiley is performing & I'm sure there will be other diverse acts - but the headliners are the big statement. I would've liked to have seen something like a Grime artist named as a headliner. I'm not gonna make out I'm some huge Grime fan - I'm not. My knowledge is pretty much Stormzy & Skepta - but why not name someone like one of them? Grime is huge at the moment, & again - an act like that would appeal to teenagers. It could inspire a whole generation. Rather than Ed Sheeran singing some song about fingering a tart in Galway.

So yeah, that's my point - I know others won't agree.

I agree with Gilesy's first and second post...

Quite. It’s not demanding a refund. It’s just the process.

I adore Radiohead, and they’re worthy of a headline status.
Foo Fighters will probably put on a good show, but it’s very “by the numbers”.
Ed Sheeran isn’t for Glastonbury for me.

I also agree. Glastonbury is a lot of money. I did a week in Barcelona including flights, AirBnB and Primavera festival and I reckon it was cheaper than my last trip to Glastonbury.

I can't deal with people criticising Radiohead though - those people have literally no idea what they are talking about, even if they don't particularly like them. Having one true headliner is enough for me.
Like Radiohead a lot, but they really need to up it after their Roundhouse shows. I thought they were really dull, and very self-indulgent. Disappointing after some previous crackers.

Not really bothered about Pyramid / headline acts as long as there are a few old faves tucked away on the smaller stages. But then I don't pay anyway, so can't complain.
