  1. 2019 Headliners

    Thought this was a football post at first and was so confused as to why you of all people were posting about football.
  2. Lineup 2018

    They might be the biggest metal band of their generation but they're nowhere near those three in terms of legendary status. There has to be a cut-off somewhere.
  3. Yeah Travis Scott could be a good shout tbh if they went down that route. Reckon Chainsmokers might be a bit big for it? Think they're in a similar place now to where Macklemore was in 2014 (might be wrong I know naff all about them) where we were all expecting him to headline NME and he obviously ended up subbing main. Then again I guess he could still have headlined NME if the lineup wasn't so weak. Been expecting them to sub V or something since the rumours came about that they'd be around late Summer.
  4. Lineup 2018

    A Passion Pit DJ set headlining NME? Travis Scott subbing the festival? Cage the Elephant third down? Sorry man this isn't it.
  5. Yeah tbf I wanted to re-shuffle the NME headliners to avoid the clash but it seemed most sensible the way I had it, as annoying as it'd be. And fair on Schoolboy Q. Wasn't feeling my previous NME headline picks (Jungle and Friendly Fires) and couldn't really think of anyone to replace them with other than Vampire Weekend (I think Shikari will do Download and can't really think of any dance acts who are the right size atm). Yeah I've seen some people predict Future for that slot which may be more sensible? Don't really know enough about him to say.
  6. Football 17/18

    Yikes that Giroud finish... Edit: On the 4 year anniversary of Wilshere's Norwich goal, and the same players linking up again (plus added Walcott).
  7. Slight update. As always there would be acts to slot in above some of the lower ones like Alvvays. Stole a couple of FR/Dance headliners as I couldn't be arsed thinking about them until we have more of an idea of who'll be around. Reading Friday/Leeds Saturday: Main: Royal Blood/Paramore (co-headline) / Wolf Alice / Don Broco / Lil Uzi Vert / Marmozets / Creeper / IDLES / Basement NME: Schoolboy Q / Jack Garratt / The Horrors / Tom Grennan Dance: Hannah Wants FR: Peace Reading Saturday/Leeds Sunday: Main: Arctic Monkeys / 30 Seconds to Mars / Courteeners / The Wombats / Mastodon / Alien Ant Farm / The Amazons / Fickle Friends / Inheaven NME: All Time Low / Nothing But Thieves / King Gizzard and the Lizard Wizard Dance: Annie Mac Pit: Skindred FR: Amber Run 1xtra: Brockhampton Reading Sunday/Leeds Friday: Main: Kendrick Lamar / Twenty One Pilots / The Kooks / Everything Everything / J-Hus / The Hunna / Declan McKenna / Hinds NME: Vampire Weekend / Rat Boy / The Cribs / Alvvays Dance: Sigma FR: Death From Above 1xtra: Wretch 32
  8. Lineup 2018

    But the rock element is becoming less relevant because they're keeping up with music trends and hence booking more hip-hop and dance instead of it. It's no longer a solely rock festival in the same way it's no longer a jazz festival.
  9. Lineup 2018

    Meh it's a contemporary music festival that moves with the times but also has a strong focus on rock music. Getting annoyed that it's booking some of what's in vogue at the moment because it used to be a rock festival is dumb. It used to have more rock because rock was more popular back then than it is now. If grime was this big 15 years ago then R&L would have been booking it. Most of us who no longer go to the festival had a turning point where what was being booked was no longer in line with our tastes, but that's because we're older than the target market and they're booking what that target market are after. 16-18 year olds at the moment are into grime and being a guy seemingly in his mid-late 20s making YouTube videos complaining about a festival aimed at teenagers replacing the music he likes with grime music is embarrassing af. Tbh tho it's not worth the level of ranting I'm going at here I was just overwhelmed by the cringe. Anyway ye I'll stop moaning about him.
  10. Lineup 2018

    Man complained about grime cos it was originally a rock festival... When it was originally a jazz festival... Fuck sake.
  11. Lineup 2018

    Is this a grown man with a YouTube channel dedicated to Reading and Leeds festivals? His rock love and grime hate is as embarrassing as the Courteeners-obsessed Manc people on Twitter who think everything other than lad rock isn't proper music. Also what was even the point in that video? Man actually hand wrote a line-up of his favourite bands on canvas with Rammstein half way down The Pit and included his own band and one band just so his cousin would buy a ticket... To a festival that isn't even happening... This has made me unnecessarily angry smh.
  12. I like Arctic Monkeys, Stormzy, Tame Impala, Kendrick Lamar, Vampire Weekend and honestly that's about it. Think it'd be a naff lineup but then again I expect it to be a naff lineup.
  13. Lineup 2018

    Not sure how I managed to get through 5 minutes of that.
  14. Oh no it was just a joke cos everyone always quotes people's predictions and bolds the acts they'd see, but your prediction was already written in bold
  15. Download 2018

    I thought Trent hated playing metal festivals because he doesn't like NIN being seen as a metal band, or something along those lines. Can't see them playing at all. Most likely trio is surely A7X, Metallica and Ozzy as most have said, and after that I think there's a chance of Bon Jovi, BMTH (if they're active) and QOTSA (if the own show info is false or is just a show in Scotland or something). Can't really think who else there is. Pearl Jam but they also don't like heavy festivals do they?
  16. British Summer Time 2018

    Ohh right sorry for the misunderstanding haha. And yeah, spill or give us a hint
  17. British Summer Time 2018

    Those sentences weren't linked. It wasn't a "wtf are you after if you don't want Roger Waters?" I was just asking because there could easily be acts he likes in contention for the remaining spots. But even if you don't like him, it's not really an underwhelming booking in the grand scheme of things.
  18. British Summer Time 2018

    50% of the headliners so far are Roger Waters. What kind of acts are you after? Still 4 or so headliners to come ain't there, and it's usually a decent spread of artists.
  19. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Based on it being in this thread I assumed a tour/own show announcement rather than a festival announcement. Won't be R&L anyway as they always warn us of an incoming announcement and it's too soon for them anyway. BST also normally warn us the night before so we'll know tonight if they've an announcement coming tomorrow. They also announced Bruno Mars either yesterday or the day before so it'd be a bit soon for them to announce another.
  20. Nick Cave

    Ugh why can't Glasto just be on next year? I'd be expecting him to pop up now if it were.
  21. Latitude 2018

    Yeah decent shout if he's around.
  22. That Friday and Saturday are actually well good. I'd probs get two day tickets tbh.
  23. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Quite a few big, older bands who look like they'll be around at the time - Depeche Mode, Iron Maiden, Bon Jovi, Pearl Jam. Could end up similar to 2012 in that regard. Pretty much between IOW and BST for them all in terms of festivals (guess Bon Jovi could do Download). Also in terms of newer acts, the likes of Kasabian, Florence and The Killers will probably be around with no obvious festivals for them to be at. If IOW make a hash of their headliners this year then they should probably just give up.
