  1. Lineup 2018

    RaR/RiP 2nd anouncement is out: Alexisonfire, Andy Frasco, Avatar , Babymetal, Baroness, Bausa, Beth Ditto, Chase & Status, Gurr, Heisskalt, Jonathan Davis, Kreator, Mavi Phoenix, Milliarden, Moose Blood, Muse, Pop Evil, Shinedown, Snow Patrol, Starcrawler, Taking Back Sunday, The Bloody Beetroots, The Neighbourhood, Thursday, Vitalic, Yungblud I guess Snow Patrol and Chase & Status can be relevant? Can't see US bands staying until late summer in Europe...
  2. Lineup 2018

    Pearl Jam just announced Euro tour for early summer, including Werchter and 2x O2 arena. It was a wild prediction anyway but they got mentioned here several times. I guess this crosses them out
  3. Lineup 2018

    I see your point but I was commenting both from comparison vs last year (when Green Day, SOAD, LP, Arcade Fire, Blink and Foos were available) and from headliners relevance on the continent perspective. To provide more context - Gorillaz are struggling to sell out 5-7k capacity places (e.g., Hamburg still available) on the current tour in Germany. 30STM were absolutely pitiful in 2013, playing to the smallest headliner crowd I have ever seen. Limp Bizkit were playing against them to a completely packed Arena stage... I can't see them being more relevant in 2017 unless their new album is a huge hit. RaR/RiP demographics is closer to Download than Reading so I guess Jared's movie achievements don't count ;-) Anyway, I think booking Gorillaz (and also 30stm to certain extent) is a great move as their pool of potential headliners will expand. They will sell out regardless, strong undercards will help too.

    Could have been the case. They announced the lineup 2 wks later than usually
  5. Lineup 2018

    I guess RaR/RiP struggles with headliners tbh (FF played 2 yrs ago, 30stm are rather weak and gorillaz are a gamble). 30stm got pitiful reception in 2013. No one really cared, the smallest crowd I have ever seen for a headliner. Imagine 30stm headlining Download...
