  1. Album of the Year 2017

    My name is Boutros Boutros Boutros Ghali. Put down the mixtapes and give us the album, Charli!
  2. Album of the Year 2017

    Is she’s gonna differentiate between mixtapes and albums then so am I.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Completely not a R+L act. You’d have them two on stage doing acapella harmonies and some shitty kids starting an ironic circle pit.
  4. 2019 festival

    They could do it but I'm sure it would certainly be on the second year of whatever tour, because there's no way they'll forego the run of June's hard rock and metal festivals they play every couple of years to do R+L and the like.
  5. Lineup 2018

    This is generally not a rule for most festivals Alf.
  6. 2019 festival

    I read this three times wondering what Tyler the Creator had to do with Peep Show.
  7. 2019 festival

    Okay, time to get me some criticism of my own: MY CHEMICAL ROMANCE, A Day to Remember, Bombay Bicycle Club, Glass Animals NME: Everything Everything ARCTIC MONKEYS, The Hunna, Architects, Run the Jewels NME: Giggs THE 1975, Two Door Cinema Club, Tyler the Creator, Neck Deep NME: The Libertines
  8. Lineup 2018

    I reckon they should change their announcement schedule because the December and January ones seem practically pointless. It's like the people getting them early were getting them regardless of acts, and the people dependent on acts wait until the main announcement. Just bring the main announcement forward a month I say, then more acts and the assigning of stage splits and running orders in March. I think that could well bring back the chaotic scramble for weekend tickets that they used to have.
  9. Lineup 2018

    Ah, The Grimmie definitely announced Eminem. I don’t think it matters to the announcement timing though. Yeah next week would be more likely than this week because there’s only one day left. As for more likely than others, I dunno. It seems that either they’re having a hold up in the announcement or are changing the way they typically announce so it could be tomorrow and it could be January.
  10. Lineup 2018

    When did they stop announcing it on the radio?
  11. 2017 on Spotify

    Wow. That’s nothing that a hundred men or more could ever do.
  12. All Points East Festival 2018

    There’s a comp on DICE to win VIP tix to all the music events over the two weekends. You gotta buy a ticket to a Goldenvoice event to enter (includes like Young Fathers, PSB, Bonobo... there’s a list on the app) but it’s open until end of Jan so more qualifying gigs might pop up before then. Another good reason to get on DICE anyway.
  13. Taylor Swift

    You're right, it is a great piece massively undermined by the runner up shout. In 2016 he changed the world, fair enough. In 2017 he ignored/dismissed everything going on in the world and played golf.
  14. Lineup 2018

    It's not just a Pukkelpop rumour; an Austrian newspaper hinted towards them as a booked act for Frequency Festival before that. I would sorta expect to hear about a new album very soon if they're to play this summer, however.
  15. Lineup 2018

    They're not the biggest and best at what they do, Foo Fighters are. Honestly not to dampen the analytical powers of Beez but they're in good company as far as generic rock bands go; it's just they became the whipping boys of pop-rock and it stuck. I guess the horrible post-grunge leanings is what makes them an easier target than most - I think if Creed were still around they'd get shit on just as much - but yeah it is what it is and I don't see any reason why they have to become a festival band. I think their first album is pretty good grunge tho.
  16. Lineup 2018

    What makes them the sort of band Download should book? They are a band that the majority would refuse to even give a chance and would think twice about going to a festival they’re headlining, and their fans probably don’t have a lot of interest in going to the festival either.
  17. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    You traded my soul for pogs?!
  18. Lineup 2018

    Can't see how they're a strong sub now. I think they'll still be okay to sub next album and hopefully get Bestival/Latitude/APE headline slot under their belts before being ready to make the leap to major festival headliners.
  19. Download 2018

    I think Parkway Drive are telling the truth on their tour dates about playing Saturday tho. Then the poster would read chronologically and in line with their slots:
  20. Latitude 2018

    But as Zac says, there are gonna be plenty bigger and more appropriate acts for V than Florence and the Machine, whereas she suits Latitude down to a T and she's around and also she's only doing very few European dates on account of her not having the album out yet so hardly going to be enough of a big gun to rescue V Festival. Also they've not definitely gone to three days. Maybe. Would look better on the festival as a new blood British headliner than Catfish and the Bottlemen (who don't have dates yet) but I guess we'll have to wait and see.
  21. Lineup 2018

    Sub for whoever the other night is that isn't Royal Blood or Foo Fighters would be f9. £30 for three days at the moment. But aye, it seems to me like pie in the sky wishlist stuff bc of the relocation but they are rumoured to be about Europe in July so they could swing by if they were willing to waive their normal fee and do something special. Plus it looks like it's either Tramlines or nowt for Arctic Monkeys in England if it's true that they're not doing R+L.
  22. Lineup 2018

    I know it's not really relevant but I know Coachella was mentioned by some in reasoning to Arctic Monkeys playing R+L. It's looking a lot like The Weeknd, Beyoncé and The Chainsmokers are the headliners out in Indio. And God help us all.
  23. Album of the Year 2017

    I hope one of those is Craig Finn or your reputation as the resident Hold Steady fan is in jeopardy!
  24. Latitude 2018

    Arguably same (but not with V) for Arcade Fire and The Cure tho, plus I’d say V could get much bigger and more appropriate names in her place. Plus she’s definitely in Europe at the time which isn’t the same deal for those two. It’s a good suggestion.
  25. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Massive, and it’ll put the festival on the radar of more folk than the usual acts. Really gonna have to see the reports from this festival now the fallow year has allowed attendees parents to go along as well.
