Dude you know Shed Seven/Embrace are nowhere near the size to headline this right?
Blondie just got off doing an 8 date tour of the UK which included multiple arena dates and 2 nights at Brixton. Shed Seven/Embrace couldn't even do that at their prime!
Im all for both bands lower down the bill, but I was just trying to brainstorm headliners.
Blondie are around the same size Madness are IMO.
All the headliners will be arena acts and the second stage headliners will be around that too I imagine.
I wouldn't be surprised with a triple of
Blondie - Snow Patrol - Paul Weller, its gunna be something quite Middle of the road, Heart FM/Absolute Radio friendly. Although those 3 together is a bit overkill, I wonder if Snow Patrol are still big enough to headline this or would they sub now, been away a long time but new album coming out, probably a sub like Travis was 2 years back.
Then the second stage a bit more current.
I'd love them to get Faithless or Chemical Brothers however, I don't think either are out of reach for this.
