    Probably got more pressure to sell tickets both on the weekend and on the days in Paris. Foos ain't a cheap booking and the booker seems clever enough to know that the average Foos fan isn't turning up for a cluster fuck main stage like Muse got when they headlined here.

    Seems pretty clear from the poster that JEW and GC will alternate headlining main, with PVRIS headlining a softer stage and Frank Carter headlining a heavier stage. TBS 3rd on main.

    Wasn't aware the tour sold badly. I'd put a decent amount of the blame on to whoever booked the support slot. I've seen Anti-Flag support them, Pennywise support them, both great bookings and both times me and a few mates were on the fence then saw the support and thought "no we have to go its worth it for the double header". But this time they decide to book Sleeping with Sirens?? That's one of the worst booked tours I've ever seen. The only possible explanation is that they somehow thought that they'd try and appeal to the kids and that they'd sell some tickets from fanboys/girls who would buy tickets to any Sleeping with Sirens gig even as a support band. I'm sure they would've sold some tickets this way, but still absolutely mental.

    Rise Against are easily big enough to headline 2nd. Pretty sure they already have done it before. Think last time they did main stage they were 4th down, but wouldn't be shocked to see them wind up 3rd down with Guns booked.

    ??? Not really seeing any difference. Alkaline Trio would be able to do similar if not slightly bigger venues if they came back in 2018/19 as they've been away for so long. Not that fussed just thought it was really weird when thinking about the biggest American band they've booked that someone's first thought would be The Front Bottoms.

    I personally think theyre too big to headline one of the other stages, but even if their not, if you had Jimmy Eat World booked to headline, why would you book Good Charlotte to play at the same time as them? Makes no sense and is a waste of money and would piss off the punters, especialy older crowd who maybe don't always go or haven't been before who wouldve just seen JEW, TBS and GC on the poster. I think Good Charlotte are too big to play 3rd down and I dont see them having Taking Back Sunday 3rd down either, as they subbed what was one of the biggest Slam Dunks that theyve done in 2015. So I just dont see them being there at all.

    In what universe are The Front Bottoms bigger booking than Alkaline Trio?
  8. Slam Dunk 2018

    I don't think Good Charlotte are nailed on at all. They'd surely take up one of the top 2 spots.

    Not like predicting Parkway Drive to headline 2nd is putting your neck on the line is it?. Youd be pretty foolish to bet against them being booked in that slot at this point given their definitely around and the bands headlining. Predicting IceT and BabyMetal to play is pretty safe too. I dont blame the guy for trying it to be honest, hes probably got most of them eating out of the palm of his hand. There always going mad for the slightest bit of information over there.

    I think they'll be locked in for a slot at Reading and Leeds. Especially when these festivals would've first been booked they would've hoped that they'd appeal to what R+L is looking for these days more than they've managed.

    My basic point is: If BST doesn't exist last year- Green Day aren't at BST. Green Day may instead do Reading and Leeds > Reading and Leeds doesn't exist or want Green Day > Green Day's only option for a festival performance is Download That's basically what you're looking at in the European countries that get "better" lineups each year. Same reason why Graspop has Jusas Priest this year but Download doesn't Judas Priest aren't offered a headline slot at Bloodstock > Judas Priest probably end up at Download this year

    Theyre not competing for all of the same headliners or bands or the same punters, but BST and Reading being there does lead to DL not being able to book lineups as strong as the Euros fests. BST got both Green Day and Rancid on a UK exclusive last year. Reading will always be after bands like Foos, Muse, Biffy, QOTSA, Royal Blood, Green Day, Blink etc which DL would book. They've even had Metallica in recent years

    Not a bit too big for that?

    Oh wait I think he was right. The original poster has leaked: https://gyazo.com/3b209c01ee43879f4756ac66a93d49d6
