Now come on - how likely is that?
Plans have been announced for an event to be staged in Somerset to fill the vacuum left by Glastonbury Festival as it takes its sabbatical in 2012.
Shepton Mallet-based music promoter and businessman Kevin Newton has announced that he intends to stage a large live music event somewhere in Mendip to fill the gap left by Glastonbury Festival next summer.
Mr Newton manages boy band Reconnected are backed by Dragon's Den Duncan Bannatyne, who owns Charlton House Hotel in Shepton Mallet, Mr Newton told Somerset News "I am speaking to music agents in London to find out which headline acts could be available. If I can get a big enough headline act we will have a 'big weekend 2012' in the Mendip area."
This has made us at Safeconcerts HQ smile, anyone who thinks they can emulate Glastonbury or even begin to fill the immense gap the festival will leave in 2012 has to be a bit out of touch, let alone thinking that the kind of line-up hinted at by Mr Newton will have any chance of attracting the Glastonbury faithful. We've already seen the Isle of Wight move their event to the 'Glastonbury' weekend in what can be seen as an attempt to poach the Glastonbury crowd. We're sure many other festivals will try the same approach and we are equally sure that none will succeed. Trying to grab the Glastonbury slot smacks of a cynical attempt to make money at worst, naivety at best.
We're a teeny bit reluctant to say this because we don't want everyone rushing to the Isle of Wight next September - but if you want a guaranteed top notch festival in 2012, one that has earned it's place and one that can give the Glastonbury vibe a run for its money, head to Bestival
, it's consistently special - but shhhhh - don't tell everyone!
