  1. Download 2018

    Not a chance they're at Download
  2. British Summer Time 2018

    Maiden are a pretty good shout. Would probably sell well especially with a biggish band supporting and bands like Saxon etc underneath. I think Paramore probably end up there if they're not at Reading.

    Yeah it wasn't exactly subtle

    I'm not so sure Stone Sour will sub after seeing how some of these shows have sold. If they can have Five Finger Death Punch and Steel Panther 3rd down, don't see why Stone Sour should be subbing tbh.

    It depends on the headliner. This year they had Rob Zombie and Simple Plan against Biffy and then they had Sum 41 and Exodus against System of a Down. However, they had absolutely nobody against Aerosmith. I think the year before they had All Time Low up against Rammstein and some of NOFX against Black Sabbath, but then again they had absolutely nobody up against Iron Maiden on the Sunday. If you're used to Reading or Slam Dunk etc where there's 3 or 4 acts up against the headline you will definitely be very disappointed.
  6. Slam Dunk 2018

    I think Slam Dunk are a festival that can afford to have someone that's not massively "mainstream" like Brand New headline, a heavier headliner like an Architects or a Parkway Drive, or even a "smaller" headliner like Sum 41, Jimmy Eat World or Good Charlotte. It will more than likely sell out either way.

    I don't see how Stone Sour are bigger than Weezer in the UK. Could maybe make a case for Stone Sour being bigger at Download I guess, but even then, it would be very worrying times for them if Stone Sour ever headlined.

    There's literally no chance those 3 are the headliners. Avenged are probably there but there's no way they get paired with Bring Me and Green Day.

    I really hope it won't be Ozzy but its probably a safe bet and a "now or never" type deal. Will shift a fair bit of tickets for sure.

    Are Beartooth big enough to headline 3rd now?

    They probably all could, but apart from New Found Glory I don't think any one of them would be particularly good/big headliners for that stage. New Found Glory definitely the biggest and you could easily have them headline 3rd, probably a stretch to have them sub it but I think if they don't have too many big Avalanche type bands on main or 2nd (they booked a hell of a lot of them this year, likes of Sum 41, Good Charlotte, Simple Plan etc) they could maybe strengthen the Avalanche a little to compensate. I think Less Than Jake could headline it but considering they were willing to play 2nd down on a stage at Slam Dunk, I don't see why they'd kick off at being 2nd or 3rd down the Avalanche Stage if they got paid. Against Me! would be a pretty weak headliner for it imo, think last time they played they were only 3rd or 4th down? I can't remember the exacts but I'm sure The Used and whoever headlined 3rd that day were on after them in 2014. PVRIS are an odd one. I think when you look at the venues they're doing on this next run they're certainly big enough to headline it and realistically they'd probably shove a band like them on Main or 2nd, but I dunno, they've never played Download before and I'm not sure if they'd be a big enough deal at Download to warrant headlining it.

    Well yeah, but they also played pretty much every other European festival that would have them this summer. Why would they come all the way to Europe next summer just to headline a UK festival that they have repeatedly decided not to play for the last decade, including last summer when they were playing every European festival under the sun. They chose to play BST instead so I see no reason why they'd come back over on this album cycle.

    Them not playing Download this year was a pretty big indicator

    Where did he say that? There's no way any more than 1 of those bands would get booked for next year as they'd all want to headline.
