  1. 2019 festival

    My Chemical Romance, Drake, The 1975
  2. @luckysalt said that they were never in the running for 2016, and I don't know why people think that about 2017 but I definitely don't believe it. That would've been a terrible booking by that point.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Yep, so be it. But you can't look at that lineup and say the festivals booking policy hasn't changed and that they've always only booked what teenagers are listening to. FWIW I don't even like The National and quite like Janes and Interpol but I'm not that fussed about them, if it's better for the festival than go for it. I'm not trying to be Chinaski, just pointing out that I don't think what he was saying is true.

    It doesn't matter though when the band being bumped is bigger than the returning headliner. It probably hasn't happened as recently because there hasn't been years recently with as many acts ready. Like Royal Blood, BMTH, Stormzy, 21P, Florence, The 1975, possibly even Chance are pretty much all ready I think.
  5. Lineup 2018

    Please note that I'm not saying that it needs to go back to the way it used to be or that the change is a bad thing - but the guy in the video keeps saying "that's what the kids are listening to! It's always booked what the kids are listening to!" - I don't buy that. I don't believe that in 2011 16 year olds listened to The National, Interpol, Janes Addiction etc, in 2013 NIN and so on. I think that the festival has definitely moved in a more mainstream direction and further focused on what the kids are listening to. Which is fine, but I don't completely agree with that idea.

    Why couldn't they have BMTH and The 1975 but BMTH and Foals? The 1975 are definitely bigger. Anyway are we certain that Stormzy's a headliner? I know he sold out Wireless rapidly but that might be down to the festival more than him. I wouldn't be against it happening, mind. I think it will be BMTH + TOP, someone big like Yeezy, Killers, Arctics or whoever then The 1975. I wouldn't rule out 5 headliners again also.
  7. Aight this thread was useful as fuck last year so we need another one. So I'll kick things off: La Dispute- quality emo/ post hardcore band who I think hip hop fans might be able to get something out of oddly enough HMLTD - Not exactly sure how to describe them apart from a good rock band that you should listen to. They're the only ones on here that I like and are obscure enough to make the thread. So who does everyone else recommend?

    Hate to crush your dreams Alf but there is no NME stage.
  9. Lineup 2018

    Good stuff man! Keep it up.

    Really hope Manson and Alexisonfire or Rise Against don't clash. Has Copping said anything about if the other stages are on during Ozzy?
  11. Download 2018

    What you're saying about "perfect subs" and "different sounds and crowds" entirely goes out the window when you suggest a main stage of GNR / Heloween / Gojira / Opeth / Lachuna Coil. FWIW I think stylistically, Manson under Ozzy works perfectly. All these things you're saying don't actually matter at all, you're just desperately trying to justify why they should book a lineup that you like by making up bullshit pointless rules that wouldn't benefit anyone apart from yourself. Also Hellfest main stages have a range of styles, and Download has a stage for Alt/core bands as you like to call them. But why does it matter?
  12. Download 2018

    Main thing I'm wondering is why you think metalcore needs to be separated from the rest of the lineup.
  13. Yeah I thought about this the other day when you said the people behind the QoTSA gig should book a weekender. So many bands about this year wasted. Are Placebo doing anything? Let's av' them Day 2 or 3 and I'm there.

    http://www.kerrang.com/the-news/bring-me-the-horizon-are-definitely-working-on-new-music/ Twenty One Pilots as an influence. Jesus.
  15. Lineup 2018

    Fucksake I thought you were festivalsaregood at first so I believed you. Go away.

    Alright, who do you think is bigger than BSC and should sub ahead of them? If you booked the lineup this year what would it look like?
  17. Download 2018

    Shinedown are probably much bigger in this country than Spain, hence they play lower slots in Madrid. As @Pop Punk Sucks said, there's only so many slots you can fill and there's obviously an excess of bands touring this year, so some won't make it. I think it's pretty certain that those bands are playing third, if they weren't I'd expect they wouldn't include their logo like the missing Avalanche headliner. Also, most other bands that are big enough for the slot have announced their own shows or are playing a different festival.

    It's supposedly harder for UK festivals to compete with Europe given the value of the pound or something (I might be completely wrong there). NIN don't do heavy festivals so we can cross them off already. I'd expect APC to be fucking difficult to work with and wouldn't be that bigger draw then some of the other bands higher up. Unfortunately, in this country Black Stone Cherry, Thunder, Shinedown etc can all play Wembley at least and would probably be miles cheaper than everyone you mentioned. Mostly though, none of us have a fucking clue what happens behind the scenes and AC obviously knows better than us what attainable lineup would bring in the most profit and has booked one to do so. I don't think it's because Andy's dumb or out of touch or whatever.
  19. Glastonbury 2020

    Kendrick Lamar / U2 / Elton John
  20. Lineup 2020

    Wrong festival, ignore me. was pretty fucking confused by the idea of Travis Scott and Major Lazer co-headlining the 50th anniversary of Glasto.
  21. Lineup 2018

    Also, is it amount of time spent listening to females or percentage of acts you've listened to in the past 3 months or whatever that have a female? Shite survey tbh.
  22. Lineup 2018

    I got 6% female. Is that 6% of the artists I listen to have a woman, or that 6% of the total band members I listen to are female?
  23. Lineup 2018

    It'd be an interesting idea if it worked. At least for the promoting women side, because the personalised playlist it made for me was way, way off. Weirdly it had one Stone Sour song then the rest was Ellie Goulding and Craig David and stuff. I find that fucking weird because I don't even listen to Stone Sour but it must've known I'm a rock fan for including them so what the fuck was the rest of the playlist?
  24. Lineup 2018

    I think they'll play it safe and try for an album of arena rock bangers. Honestly though, long term I have no clue what they'll do about Oli. Given how shite he is now, how the fuck will he be able to perform in 10/15/20 years time?
  25. Lineup 2018

    Yeah I think The Forum was the biggest venue they did so I'm possibly getting ahead of myself. Around Enter Shikari size let's say. And yeah completely agree on BMTH, There is a Hell particularly. Tbf I can't blame someone for hearing Diamonds Aren't Forever or whatever and thinking it's abit shit (even though it's a cracker), There is a Hell though is fucking incredible and easily one of the best metal albums of the decade. Pretty weird how narrow minded some of the metal community are as you'd have thought it'd take a pretty fucking open mind to get into it in the first place, but alas.
