Glastonbury fans fuming after realising major clash during Coldplay headline set

Glastonbury fans fuming after realising major clash during Coldplay headline set

One Glastonbury fan called the set clash a 'personal attack'

It's always the way isn't it at festivals? Flying from one stage to another trying to juggle all the set times and inevitable clashes as you cram in everyone you want to see.

Combine this with crap signal and trying to slot food breaks in and it can be a bit of a logistical nightmare.

And it seems Glastonbury is no different.

Yep, turns out Glasto-goers were left pretty fuming after checking the set times for this year's event ahead of Coldplay's highly-anticipated headline slot.

Plenty of punters won't want to be missing Chris Martin and co as they take to the infamous Pyramid Stage tonight (29 June) and break a major music record in the process.

But sadly it looks like some fans may be missing out after they realised there was a major set clash.

That's right, it turns out that while Coldplay are banging out some of their iconic hits like 'Fix You' and 'A Sky Full of Stars', Disclosure will be gracing the Other Stage.


"Coldplay clashing with disclosure at Glasto is acc making me soooo sad. Obvs have to roll to Coldplay but I just know that disclosure set on other is going to be special," wrote one deflated fan.

"I feel like the @glastonbury Saturday lineup is a personal attack on me," another complained. "How am I supposed to choose between Jessie Ware, Coldplay, Gossip, and Disclosure?!"

Meanwhile, a third ranted: "That Saturday line up for Glasto is evil. Coldplay, Disclosure and Peggy Gou all clashing…"

It looks like fans will have to leave Coldplay early if they want to catch DJ duo Disclosure in action, with Coldplay's set scheduled to kick off from 9.45pm to 11.45pm, and Disclosure's starting less than hour later at 10.30pm to 11.45pm.

Hopefully fans missing out can still get excited for the rest of the festival's star-studded lineup, which includes the likes of SZA - who is headlining tomorrow (30 June) - Shania Twain and Burna Boy.

Last night we also had Dua Lipa headlining for the first time, marking a huge point in her music career so far.

The singer even brought out an unexpected special guest during her set as she pulled out all the stops to wow fans.

The most iconic Glastonbury moments

2000: The year that nearly killed Glasto

While Glasto has always had people attempting to gatecrash, 24 years ago gatecrashers descended the infamous festival in record numbers.

It was so bad it resulted in the festival being cancelled the following year as ticketless punters swarmed the site, with fears at the time the chaos could kill off the festival altogether.

Luckily, as we know, Glasto is still going strong. Speaking to the Guardian in 2020, the festival's co-creator Michael Eavis explained: "The fence wasn’t good enough, the security was crap. So I was hauled over the coals by the police, who said: "You’ve got to get someone to organise your show. You’re a nice bloke and all that, but you couldn’t arrange something in a brewery, you know the saying?

"I said: ‘Fair enough. At least I can be guaranteed to get 150,000 people at the drop of a hat – I did get the knack of that!’”

Back in 2002, the ‘Fix You’ hitmakers won fans over as they played tunes from their upcoming second album.

Apparently, the band’s agent didn’t feel they were ready for it at the time, but Eavis insisted they headlined.

And I’m sure they’re glad they listened seeing as they’ve now got nine studio albums under their belt and millions in the bank, with their A Head Full Of Dreams Tour having grossed more than half a billion dollars in its two-year run. Impressive.

It was the feud no one saw coming, but in 2008 rapper Jay-Z responded to Noel Gallagher slagging off having ‘hip hop at Glastonbury’ in the most hilarious way.

The star opened up his infamous headlining set on the pyramid stage playing his own version of ‘Wonderwall’, which went down a treat with fans and spawned one of the most iconic moments in Glasto history.

The muddiest year ever

Britain isn’t exactly known for its glorious sunshine and I think that’s especially the case when it comes to festivals, which often see punters squelching through mud in their wellies, pint in hand.

Glasto in particular has become synonymous with being pretty muddy, but 2016 really took the biscuit. Even the festival’s boss said ’in all 46 years, it hasn’t been as bad as this’ as things became an absolute logistical nightmare after weeks of rainfall beforehand.

The scenes were chaotic, to say the least. Festival-goers were filmed diving into the mud and struggling to wade through gloop in such a way that made going for a pint like climbing Mount Everest. Generally, everyone was just really trying not to fall on their ars*s.

It wasn’t a pretty sight, but of course Brits still managed to embrace the music and the photos and videos have since gone down in the Glasto history books.

The Killers' secret set

The iconic band decided to take a more chilled approach to festival life by taking over the secret act slot on the John Peel stage in 2017.

However, as is usually the case with 'secret' gigs, word spread quickly as fans flooded to the stage in their droves to catch the band in action.

It was a far cry from their previous Glasto performance, which saw their headline show become marred with serious technical issues which majorly affected the sound.

Kylie's long-awaited headline set

In 2019 Kylie Minogue set the pyramid stage alight for her headline set, but she was actually meant to grace the stage much sooner.

14 years earlier, the pop princess was forced to cancel her slot after being diagnosed with breast cancer, making her appearance on the stage even more special for both her and fans.

Her set ended up being crowned the most-watched in Glastonbury’s history, raking in 3.9million watching at its peak, beating the likes of Ed Sheeran, Adele and even Beyoncé.

Alex from Glasto

That same year, rapper Dave created probably one of the most meme-able Glasto moments when he brought a bloke called Alex on stage to perform ‘Thiago Silva’ with him, which he absolutely nailed.

Safe to say the moment went viral, with the then 15-year-old becoming known as 'Alex from Glasto'.

It's no surprise really given his unreal rapping skills and the fact that he was donning a bucket hat, FILA bag and Paris Saint-Germain shirt. Brilliant.
