    Heh, fair enough. I legit thought you might not have been having it. I think that line up works really well, to be honest. I'd have plenty to go on. I like the idea of being able to see Stone Temple Pilots and Alice in Chains over the weekend. Not sure about this new guy for STP but I think it sounds more natural than Chester did at least so maybe worth a try, and they seem willing to step down line ups to reestablish themselves so it's the least that peeps could do.
  2. Primavera 2018

    Hmm, I guess so if it wasn't possible for her to do NOS Primavera Sound. Interesting to see her back later on in summer. Unlikely but not impossible I suppose. He did make it seem easy but also why would they do it so rarely if that was the case?
  3. Mad Cool 2018

    Seems reasonable then if he's not ruled out. I don't think Liam Gallagher would headline this considering he''s less than a headliner at smaller European festivals but it's a better suggestion than anything I can think of.
  4. Primavera 2018

    Yeah I guess. They can show them the lyrics to Revolt if they want.

    You're really not having Parkway Drive playing Saturday are you?
  6. Primavera 2018

    Well, Gabi said a couple of months ago that they were trying to get Jack White still, and a couple of weeks ago he said that some artists are "resisting on the smallest details", so I'm thinking he still isn't properly booked because he's tough to negotiate with but they're very far along the process. Obviously if White was solely at Mad Cool or BBK then he'd just say no as they seem to have their headliners pinned down.
  7. Mad Cool 2018

    Didn't he get ruled out by the Bar Tool fella?
  8. Latitude 2018

    Did he? Cool. Live Your Life was a right tune.
  9. Mad Cool 2018

    Thirty Seconds to Mars are in Madrid in April. I think you could cut that list down to Radiohead, Arctic Monkeys and Muse but also I don't think having two of those next to each other is all that realistic - most likely one of them and another name outside of those. I wonder if [The] Smashing Pumpkins' reunion plans may include this? It's an outside shot but it does seem to be a matter of "when" over "if" now and there's good reason to keep their reunion announcement held back and good reason to guarantee them a token headline slot. I think the biggest obstacle to it would be that their old guitarist is currently touring with A Perfect Circle, who have shows until July 1st. Aside from them and Kendrick Lamar I'm struggling for names. edit: Were Disclosure a headliner at last year's Benicassim? I guess they've got to come back eventually...
  10. Primavera 2018

    Gabi is still going with this Q&A. Not many juicy details about potential acts - he responded to the question "would it be more surprising if Bjork was or wasn't at Primavera" with "neither would be surprising". Interestingly, he says Childish Gambino might be around next summer but PS looks to coincide with the promotional period of the Han Solo movie, so he can't play PS.
  11. Latitude 2018

    There's that Melt Festival that I'm sure you're aware of. Not that it'd really impact their chances of Latitude. Could do both, could do neither.
  12. Lineup 2018

    A few of those weren't announced until the end of March when the day splits came out!
  13. Lineup 2018

    That's not Christmas money then. But also I was completely joking. Maybe. I was just thinking in the circumstances that they play a few festival shows next summer at either side of the pond. Not sure if they'll have an album out in time for 2019.
  14. Lineup 2018

    I mean it's possible for views to change over the course of a year isn't it? I think they could book both now, but I don't think they will. Also Green Day aren't Arctic Monkeys and will be between album tours. And Green Day headlined alongside Eminem last time. I don't see it ruling them out.
  15. Lineup 2018

    Hang on. Replying to the edit: I don't see why not with this either. Foos and Arctics could easily be in the same year. This year they had Eminem, Muse and Kasabian and they all seemed like pretty big names at the time, nobody could comprehend all three being there in the same year.
  16. Latitude 2018

    I think that Tame Impala were only at NOS Alive last year so might be unlikely for them to return two years on, leaving the rest of the weekend free for Latitude. They're doing Thursday at MC anyway. I could see them playing Bestival though if they're around until early August. Played Bestival UK and Canada on the Currents tour so I guess there must be a relationship there.
  17. Lineup 2018

    If you want another act to speculate about, there's some talk of Green Day doing a festival (Governors Ball, if it matters) stateside, because of some clue thing. They usually don't tour for that long at all but if they are doing a smattering of festival dates next year then I can see FR jumping at the chance to get them in for Reading.
  18. Mad Cool 2018

    Jack White seems almost certain for Primavera Sound after the lead booker's comments last night so it will likely have to be someone else in that spot.
  19. Lineup 2018

    The one on the line up page? I think that's been up a while.
  20. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Yeah that's what caught my eye about it. Not a fan of the band nor a Scottish resident but it seemed weird enough to let people know about. Beach Ballroom in Aberdeen looks to be about ten yards from the beach. Imagine that in the summer! Sand on the dancefloor.
  21. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Future Islands have a Scottish tour in June. Big news for Greenock based fans of funny dancing mans.
  22. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Is this not the cull May is referring to?
  23. 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.
  24. 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.
