  1. Lineup 2018

    Having Post, Kendrick and Skepta all on different day is just a ploy to sell more weekend tickets imo.
  2. Lineup 2018

    Saw them at Echo Arena a few years back and you're spot on. Never have I ever seen more embarrassing mosh pits than that night. The whole crowd seemed disinterested until a song of st Jude came on and then obviously everybody loses their minds when 'not 19 forever' plays. Their light show wasn't impressive at all but I don't know if they've changed it since. Can honestly say it's one of the worst gigs i've ever been to.
  3. Lineup 2018

    Is it just me or does having Skepta before courteeners seem unjust?
  4. Lineup 2018

    Disagree. Just cos the crowds good doesn't mean the bands good live, thought they were really terrible have to be honest.
  5. Lineup 2018

    Definitely, if he'd released more music at that time I don't think he'd have even taken that sub spot because of how well it was received. Theoretically if this played out like the way it did last year with these 'surprise slots' who'd you expect/like to see? In a realistic world I'd probably say 30 seconds to mars and the vaccines In terms of a not to so realistic choice though I'd probably say Vampire Weekend and a Bombay Bicycle Club reunion.
  6. Lineup 2018

    Yeah I remember people on here were bewildered at how he got a sub spot but he went down incredibly well at both sites and he's the closest thing people are going to get to Oasis for some time so looking at it, it seemed to make sense having him in that slot. Think it's the same with everyone have to say. All the lineup reshuffles I've seen in an attempt to make it bearable have got rid of FoB. Let's just hope Wolf Alice are indeed the NME headliners as they're miles better and would be a very enjoyable way to end the night.
  7. Lineup 2018

    Going by last year they announced 2 surprise big names taking the sub spot and 3rd down (Liam Gallagher and Korn) iirc. So they could've held back RB if they're doing the same this year but like @WFD said they have no reason whatsoever to do this. They've surpassed sub level now but with how unpredictable FR have been recently I wouldn't have put it past them to have offered them that slot.

    This is gonna be spice boy fest
  9. Lineup 2018

    I have genuinely seen people say 'the only positive of this lineup is that courteeners are a step closer to headlining'. So, I would blame their fans who view them as the best thing to come out of Manchester ever as well as FR.
  10. Lineup 2018

    The Vaccines were awful in 2016, would be another disappointment to add to that lineup in terms of indie rock have to say.
  11. Lineup 2018

    Anyone seen that Mallory Knox have parted ways with Mike. Saw them on tour last year and they were very very good, real shame.
  12. Lineup 2018

    I'm in that category in terms of age range and a fan of both rap and 'older music'. Sort of seems like they've gone for quantity over quality in terms of rap acts and then done neither with metal/rock/indie. All I'm thinking is there must be more quality to come but judging by that poster I wouldn't put it past them to just announce the hunna as a 'revolutionary up and coming rock group' smh.
  13. Lineup 2018

    Even Matt realises it's a shit lineup... And he's playing there You know it's bad when even the acts you've payed to play are complaining.
  14. Lineup 2018

    Having one of these would have made it so much better. It's evident that there's at least 10 options who are around this summer that would be better than FoB or KoL and I don't believe that they weren't able to get any of them. Seems logical that something did happen but if your back ups are panic, fall out boy and kings you're completely entitled to face scrutiny.
  15. Lineup 2018

    I mentioned it before but having the wombats and courteeners as your main indie acts for a festival of this size is an embarrassment. Let's just hope they can pull it out the bag.
