    Think the worse the clashes are, the longer they'll leave it to announcing all that.

    Be interesting to see if they have anyone on at the same time as ATDI. Don't usually have a band on same time as Thursday headliner.

    Yeah bit like saying Slam Dunk should have Blink-182. They would if they could.
  5. Slam Dunk 2018

    Sounds interesting. Wondering it will be like tents at Reading/Download.

    Have they given any idea of what the Hatfield site is like. Hard to gauge on a map. Had a friend who has never been ask me but I said it was a new site. Like you probably not going this year as I have other plans. Any idea if it is going to all be indoors, outside, mix etc?

    They can't fantasy book it though. If you want all of NIN, A Perfect Circle, Limp Bizkit, Placebo, Stone Sour and Alice in Chains on the lineup, then at least 6 of Bullet For My Valentine, Black Stone Cherry, Marilyn Manson, Volbeat, Thunder, Shinedown, You Me At Six, Parkway Drive and Rise Against have to be dropped. Maybe you have the following: Avenged Sevenfold A Perfect Circle Limp Bizkit Alice In Chains Guns N Roses Black Stone Cherry Volbeat Placebo Ozzy Osbourne Nine Inch Nails Stone Sour Parkway Drive Maybe to some on here that looks like a better lineup. I think you have to take into account whether or not Nine Inch Nails would accept a sub slot or not, hard to say. But either way, with that lineup you're still going to have people kicking off that all of Shinedown, Bullet For My Valentine, Marilyn Manson, Thunder. Deftones, Hollywood Vampires and Rise Against are around in Europe or playing their own shows but haven't turned up. Would many on here or FB/Twitter be moaning that You Me At Six arent on there? Probably not. But they obviously trying to appeal to younger people, maybe they see You Me At Six headlining that stage alongside the Avalanche bands as being an overall package and You Me At Six having headlined Slam Dunk etc being proof they're key to helping them appeal to that market. Maybe they did have a choice of YMA6 and Placebo and only YMA6 were interested, or maybe they had a choice of both and worked out that with the Avalanche stage being there too, the chances are that more YMA6 fans will buy weekend tickets than the average Placebo fan who isn't interested in much more on the lineup.

    There's only so many slots these bands can play. You only have so many sub, 3rd down and 2nd stage headline slots available.

    I think they would still book Moose Blood, not just based on them previously booking Itch/The King Blues, but they've very recently updated their home page website listing a handful of the bigger bands they've had before to advertise the fest and Moose Blood are in there. Surely Basement and especially Arcane Roots aren't big enough to sub main if Creeper aren't. Although I suppose one of the might sub the Thursday as they might still have that as a slightly "weaker day". Could see something like: At The Drive In While She Sleeps Arcane Roots Frightened Rabbit/Wolf Alice/Drenge/Feeder Moose Blood Brian Fallon/Marmozets - Enter Shikari Bury Tomorrow Basement

    If Reading didn't book Rag N Bone Man when he was playing every festival that would take him in the UK and Europe on his last album they're not going to book him now. Personally think the guy did incredibly well to get 2 hits rather than being a 1 hit wonder, will keep him getting some royalties and tours for a few years, but no chance anyone really cares about his 2nd album.
  11. 2000 Trees

    My gut is that Trees would still book them. Obviously Kerrang have still put them on the front cover, Download booked them last year etc, obviously some would say 2000 Trees are a different sort of festival and not as corporate as the other two, but they did book The King Blues and Itch to do solo stuff at the height of the allegations and stuff against him.
  12. 2000 Trees

    Unless plans have changed in the last few days, there's no plan to announce the final headliner in the next announcement. Is some very good undercard stuff though.
  13. 2000 Trees

    Think that some of you in here will be happy with the announcement next week

    Why have A Perfect Circle 3rd down when you can have Thunder and Shinedown?
  15. Slam Dunk 2018

    Pretty lazy booking with RBF and Goldfinger
