  1. Lineup 2018

    Glastonbury doesn't have two main stages, it's just a bigger festival than R&L so its second stage is much bigger than R&L's second stage. If it ends up happening most of us think it'll be similar to some European festivals (and how Reading used to be) where they have two main stages next to each other and the bands alternate.
  2. 2018 New Music

    Just seen these guys are playing Leadmill while I'm home for Easter. Don't get to many gigs now I'm in Southampton so I'll pick up tickets to that. Only £8.50, too.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Probably got Beyoncé/Jay-Z co-subbing, though.
  4. Lineup 2018

    Aye but I dunno if you've seen but someone told us yesterday that BMTH have an arena tour that's under embargo until 24th August which would suggest them playing R&L. Guess if they were offered the slot and weren't gonna have an album out in time they could agree to a secret set (and to headline next year) and then announce their arena tour afterwards.
  5. Lineup 2018

    Clutching at straws I think. Much more likely for a headliner to leak; loads more people behind the scenes will be aware of who's headlining. Wouldn't be surprised if secret sets are sorted much later on, either.
  6. Lineup 2018

    The 2 stage info also said FOB, BMTH, Royal Blood, Kendrick and Imagine Dragons will be there. All 5 of them would headline in that situation and then there's only space left for one of Foos and AM.
  7. 2018 - What it might have looked like

    Dno but I bet The Natty would have played this year instead of last year and consequently not have played a million unreleased songs. Not that I remember them anyway.
  8. Latitude 2018

    You think it's nonsense for someone to think a trio of musical acts is a step down from some previous trios of musical acts? Pretty sure the majority opinion in this thread was that that was the case anyway.
  9. Latitude 2018

    Christ, calm down. It was just a naff headline trio compared to what Latitude had been putting out in previous years. And again, it was clearly just the guy's opinion (and obviously mine too). "But the claim that these acts are a step down in quality over previous headliners [...] is nonsense". How can that be nonsense when it's an opinion of someone?
  10. Lineup 2018

    Did they re-brand the stages a year before they re-branded the posters, then? Bit weird but fair enough.
  11. Lineup 2018

    I can't tell who it is at all, it's too blurry when you zoom. Defo isn't Grohl, though.
  12. Latitude 2018

    The post you replied to was saying Latitude used to be great but isn't anymore. I think it's pretty clear he was talking about the quality of the acts. And obviously it was a personal opinion.
  13. Lineup 2018

    The last time Foos played the stage didn't look like that...
  14. Lineup 2018

    Yeah but it would be Bert on Beats is Bob. You don't just de-capitalise them for the abbreviation. We get it, you like obscure emo bands that no one likes or has heard of.
  15. Latitude 2018

    Who cares how big they are? They're shit. V Fest has big headliners, it's still shit.
  16. Lineup 2018

    Think he also gave us Foals/Disclosure in 2016.
  17. Latitude 2018

    The 1975, Mumford and Sons and Fleet Foxes...
  18. Lineup 2018

    Ugh wtf I literally know that "Out" should be capitalised and that "the" shouldn't, but ADtR and BMtH look ridiculous. Should "on" not he capitalised? Would have thought that'd be the same as "out". Fall Out Boy co-headlined two years ago. They're not playing as non-headliners below 6 headliners this year. No chance.
  19. Lineup 2018

    Yes they would be.
  20. Lineup 2018

    Yes I don't expect every single BMTH fan to like ID. I'm not saying they're the two closest bands on the planet and everyone whose favourite band is BMTH will have ID as their 2nd favourite band, and vice versa. But they're both (in style) pretty straight up arena rock bands nowadays. BMTH will still have older fans who won't be into ID, yes, but fans they've gained from their last couple of albums will likely be into bands like ID. The National and Jake Bugg are a million miles apart. I can't imagine many National fans would go near Jake Bugg. One appeals to lad rock fans who love Oasis, Courteeners and Kasabian, and the other are a Primavera/Pitchfork-y band with (no offence as they're one of my favourite bands) fans who'd turn their nose up at anything of the sort.
  21. Lineup 2018

    There's also the fact that R&L will want to book AM 10x more than Paramore, so if theyre both available (neither have anything making them unavailable thus far) they'd most certainly go for Arctic Monkeys first. Only thing is if they have Foos and don't wanna use up both in one year or pay that much money for two headliners.
  22. Lineup 2018

    It's nothing like Jake Bugg and The National ffs. I'd imagine most BMTH fans nowadays are into pop-rock like Imagine Dragons.
  23. Lineup 2018

    Not really seeing as a spread of genres (within the bounds of what R&L usually books) is an obvious thing for them to try for, to sell tickets to a wider range of people. 5 of the 6 headliners being Foos, BMTH, FoB, Roya Blood and Imagine Dragons would be absolutely awful in that sense. If someone had come out and predicted a trio of Green Day, MCR and BMTH for 2019 I'd say the same, it's appealing to a small range of people. Pretty much ruled out is ridiculous. The only thing we have suggesting that is Neil's info.
  24. Mad Cool 2018

    Ruled out by Bar Tool.
  25. Lineup 2018

    They'll definitely be at TRNSMT, but that wouldn't make a difference to whether they play R&L. R&L have always shared headliners with TITP/TRNSMT, including Kasabian last year. Arctic Monkeys ain't gonna have stopped touring by late Summer man.
