  1. Lineup 2018

    What does he expect from the sort of festivals booking The Wombats?
  2. Lineup 2018

    God damn you guys got me hyped for Blossoms breaking up and it turns out it's just a guy in the band saying another guy in the band is acting a bellend. Even if it's real, it's fucking nowt.
  3. You're just capitalising random fucking acts now pack it in. Looks fair. I feel like Kendrick day's just not gonna be very good with the way it's stacking up at the moment. There are quite a few acts that are touring earlier in summer that I wouldn't expect to be added but you never know. I don't think Mike Shinoda's gonna be ther though, he seems to be crowdsourcing gigs at the moment. Goes without saying at this point but you've got Fickle Friends stupidly high. Also if first day is Lock Up I reckon Dream Wife will be on there.
  4. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I didn't know but that ^^^^ sounds good. I know they're supports for RBCF and Magic Gang tours as well so they're in company of good bands thus far. Looks like Belle and Sebastian are testing the waters for a Belle & Sebastian cruise. I like the idea of there being one, but maybe not going to one. Not down for Stuart's school disco or whatever where everyone dresses as public schoolers. Would jump overboard tbh.
  5. Lineup 2018

    I know what you mean. I woulda thought they'd need to be signed up already to have prevented Glasto from approaching them - or, more likely, vice versa - for next year. I think they need to be willing to bite into their budget for Arctics next year for sure. It is the most popular genre within the target audience nowadays though so I struggle to really blame them. Especially with the competition with Parklife and potentially Rolling Loud - wouldn't be surprised if this was a preemptive strike at Rolling Loud to protect Wireless in future years. But wrt indie bands, there are a lot that are already on other festival bills - some that Live Nation have a vested interest in - so I think the future announcements are gonna be heavy on the indie. Plus they don't really need to be big to be appealing for indie fans as even small bands can stir up devoted followings so I think it'll be fine in one or two announcements time when they have an FR stage and the body of the NME set out.
  6. Lineup 2018

    Seems a nice enough bloke but when he acts like he's clued in because he reads this forum, it makes him look a bit of a melt. edit: he can't like his music that much if he's a fucking Don Broco fan.
  7. Lineup 2018

    The rumour is that they have stadium dates, so something to do with the money they'll get from that would be the best guess imo. Yeah this is what I think but I couldn't be arsed writing it.
  8. Lineup 2018

    Yep. Really regretting now putting something on it to say that it was fake, although I know some clown would have scrubbed it off seeing as there must have been at least one person that wanted to try pass it off as real. Honestly, if Kendrick plays last at both sites - which is pretty likely imo - then it doesn't matter if he's headlining alone or coheadlining. He doesn't play longer than 90 minutes at his own tour dates so his set won't be pared down or anything. e: plus if he plays second-last at Leeds then we might end up being able to see Chvrches in the tent.
  9. Lineup 2018

    Why? Is Adam Ant playing?
  10. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    I'm not sure a line up has ever been released without you telling an act to fuck off. Crazy that The Charlatans haven't actually played this before given that Tim's been there most/all years. The line up's something I'd be pleased with if I had a ticket already but wouldn't be rushing for my wallet to get to. Seems pretty solid to me.
  11. Nah not when doing a DJ set on his own he won't be. Definitely no bigger than Annie Mac, who will be headlining the dance stage.
  12. Lineup 2018

    Yooo the ones I just mentioned were from other people’s info and don’t have any obvious reason to have dropped out in the last few days. I agree they’re not gonna add headliners but there are clearly bigger names still to come.
  13. Lineup 2018

    He’s really popular around here. No idea why. Probably cos he nails Nirvana and Rage covers. Yep, standard procedure at this point. I think The Horrors and Peace will be added after Live at Leeds. He was the act @DR OK was hinting at last night.
  14. Lineup 2018

    This is only about 20% of who’s playing. Of course it’s salvageable. We have reason to believe acts as big as Travis Scott, The Vaccines, Logic and Chvrches are being held over for next announcement.
  15. Lineup 2018

    You're the only person FR are competing with Ramblin Man for.
  16. Lineup 2018

    Tbf that's not strictly true bc people were suggesting Royal Blood just because it gets a new up and coming band as a headliner. But the likes of Biffy and The Libertines as have been suggested have no bigger right to headline than Fall Out Boy do at this point.
  17. Lineup 2018

    Other festivals just give him an hour and a half and he doesn't fill it but it doesn't matter. That's definitely not the reason Panic at the Disco are headlining. If word is to be believed, it comes from trying to put together a second main stage which Panic at the Disco would have been a headliner of, but now that's not happening. I don't know why that means there's a replacement on Sunday and Fall Out Boy on Friday but it is more sensible than Kendrick not playing for long enough. From the last couple of hours I have gleaned that people would rather bands they like headline instead of Fall Out Boy.
  18. Lineup 2018

    It was after Muse went down the shitter. R+L 2011 looks fine on its own; in reality it was up against the biggest ever TITP and IOW lineups and very strong Glasto and V ones too.
  19. Lineup 2018

    They’re headlining the Friday at Victorious. The cheaper day before the festival even. I was thinking yesterday how crazy it is that they joined this middling festival merry-go-round when they were once in such demand to reunite and Pete Doherty was appearing at Live 8 and stuff. Now they’re not only reliable to show up, they’re fixtures. Sharing a top line with Lamine! at the Sakho.
  20. Lineup 2018

    This lineup is Leeds United 2003-04. Lets be real though, this hasn’t been put to shame by Y Not. Y Not has been put to shame by Y Not, and it just flags up how dead the British indie rock scene seems to be - now that leading names are going straight to the festivals headlined by fading stars of yesteryear
  21. arctic monkey shows

    Ah, the lead guitarist. Fair enough.
  22. arctic monkey shows

    Has @eFestivals specified which arctic monkey he’s referring to in the title?
  23. Lineup 2018

    Wow, you just made me gay for tolerance.
