  1. Lineup 2018

    The sort of kids who would spend their Christmas money on a festival nine months away are obviously nerds and not the sort of people anyone wants at a festival.
  2. Lower Than Atlantis won’t be given that high a slot. They were even lower down than that on the second stage at this year’s Boardmasters. Would probably be palmed off with a middling slot on that stage or just main stage filler again.
  3. Latitude 2018

    It’s alright. I don’t suppose we’ll ever truly know. I do actually think Chvrches seem more likely now, and that Catfish will probably instead do all manner of mid-sized festivals (and possibly sub R+L) throughout summer. I guess The 1975 did Parklife the same year they did Latitude but they’re a bigger band, Parklife is a bigger festival than the Tyneside thing and I don’t suppose it aims for the same clientele as Latitude does so that seems more acceptable.
  4. Download 2018

    Not before Christmas though. Additionally Korn are unlikely because Jonathan Davis seems to be touring solo in Europe right around the time. I think there’s a decent chance of him appearing.
  5. All Points East Festival 2018

    Seems over on the Primavera thread that Jack White has essentially been confirmed over there, so chances of him being at All Points East look good. It'll probably be even stronger than a TMR undercard, going off the form of APE so far.
  6. Green Man Festival 2018

    Scouting trip me thinks. I just peeped that they have already announced shows in Prague and Zurich on the Monday and Tuesday before GM. Additionally, Bob War on Drugs said on Belgian radio that they were back there in August (ie. Pukkelpop) so they enter as a candidate for this I reckon, given that they played EOTR last album. On the large side but it'll do.
  7. Latitude 2018

    10% less seems very small considering the Latitude capacity is about 50% below Reading or Isle of Wight, and the headliners aren’t very big in comparison, so I don’t quite believe that. Anyway, Michael Eavis claims Fleetwood Mac want £5m to play Glastonbury. That’s barely budgetable for any festival let alone Latitude where Fleet Foxes we’re the last band to headline.
  8. Yeah you’re right this is the topic for it and we’re free to choose whether to get involved. It’s just as far as feedback goes, no one here ever gets it right or even close on a larger scale so it might be more fun to assemble when we get a better indication of the acts around and stuff.
  9. Really don’t wanna be an arse but there’s merit in just doing a prediction and saving it a month or so, or waiting for something to actually change. It’s fair enough wanting feedback but seeking it on a full line up prediction every one or two days is asking a lot.
  10. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    If you're shipping a bromance between QOTSA and Muse then you oughta read the news.
  11. Lineup 2018

    I think Catfish headlining some new festival in Newcastle at £32 a go should end any chance of headlining Reading and/or Leeds 2018. Probably doesn't bode well for Latitude chances either.
  12. Latitude 2018

    The same Fleetwood Mac who say Glastonbury don’t pay enough?
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Hope they process refunds quite quickly as I bet a fair amount of those tickets were Chrimbo pressies.
  14. 2019 festival

    Looks pretty realistic. However Limp Bizkit and Bombay Bicycle Club headlined NME on their last appearances so I think they’d be on main stage if they were back.
  15. Lineup 2018

    They’re actually pretty successful stateside and across a few continents.
  16. Best Kept Secret Festival 2018

    Yeah that’s the best way to describe it imo. I think The National. LCD Soundsystem, Father John Misty and Future Islands are all good as some of the top names for this festival but far from surprising or rare choices.
  17. 2017 New Music Thread

    It being their last album would be the dumbest thing ever. None of them have really broken out on their own yet so they’d essentially be retiring. I guess I’m just never gonna be a fan because they seem mediocre af and there’s only the one guy that strikes me as a talented rapper but they’ve obviously got a thing going in hip hop circles so I doubt it’s the end.
  18. Lineup 2018

    Yeah that festival seems to have changed a lot.
  19. British Summer Time 2018

    Tbh only a year and a half on, £60-odd seems pretty cheap to see Kendrick now.
  20. Lineup 2018

    Paramore have never played European festivals around R+L. They’re just not that big a deal anywhere else but UK and America.
  21. 2019 festival

    Just seem like the types to reunite after five years off I guess. They’re all still pals and their separate post-MCR projects will barely keep their pools heated.
  22. Rock Werchter 2018

    Yeah this seems incredibly odd. Like it could be an early iteration of the line up but they since replaced Jack White with Marilyn Manson and Macklemore’s social media people received or uploaded this one in error.
  23. Lineup 2018

    Sure but like those dates on that list, you can quite easily suggest they’re spoken for as they’re playing those countries in spring.
  24. 2019 festival

    Make way for the Prophets of SOAD
  25. Lineup 2018

    Kasabian were gonna come back to the UK at some point. But yeah I guess you’re free to predict that but it’s not tied to any dates at this point and they’d be coming over solely for R+L. Very unlikely imo.
