  1. 2012 specifically. Throw in Peace and Palma Violets and you've already got a nostalgia fest for that year.
  2. Lineup 2018

    Never got The Courteeners, never will. Can't help but feel that the fact they're from Manchester has helped boost their popularity because of the music press's hard on for that city, despite Oasis being the last genuinely great band to emerge from there, which was nearly 25 years ago now.
  3. Lineup 2018

    In the 90s and 2000s V line ups were not too dissimilar to Reading and Leeds, just with a few more "commercial friendly" acts thrown in. They had Radiohead and Morrissey headline one year, and have also had acts like Sonic Youth, Pixies, and QOTSA play in the past. It seemed to get a lot of leftover acts from Reading and Leeds the previous year. It's only been a fairly recent thing that it's been pure mainstream pop. It'd be great if it did come back this year, and they outdid Reading and Leeds. Would answer a lot of questions if the headliners were Foo Fighters and Arctic Monkeys too.
  4. Lineup 2018

    Apparently Nas' crowd was pretty dead in 2016, and he is, to a lot of people, the greatest rapper of all time. If a band is huge enough like the Roses then they will go down great. I saw them at both Heaton Park and then Leeds last summer and both times there was a lot of younger people there. But if the festival didn't book them in 2016 when they were touring, and not at V or Glastonbury, and instead opted for Biffy despite them headlining just a few years prior, then that speaks volumes. They missed a real trick there. Day tickets would have sold out. Maybe the likes of the Manics or Pixies wouldn't go down too well with the younger crowd, but the promoters need to acknowledge that it's not just 16 - 20 year olds who go. The 2010 line up was a perfect example of blending old and new.

    Commonly used back in the day where I'm from (Leeds).
  6. Lineup 2018

    I guess so, but they and the festival seem to like each other. Don't think they've not promoted one album at the festival. File alongside 'sick', 'dark', 'rough'.
  7. Lineup 2018

    There needs to be a new festival with a line up similar to how Reading and Leeds used to be. The amount of great bands who are active in the summer, who the festival has missed out on because they feel they don't fit the demographic. I'm not suggesting a weekend's worth of dad rock, but it'd be great to have a festival where someone like Weezer or the Manics or Morrissey or Pixies or whoever would play alongside newer up and coming acts. If Hip Hop is the in thing right now, then bring in veterans of the genre like Public Enemy, Ice Cube and Wu Tang.
  8. Lineup 2018

    "Earth shattering" "California legends Papa Roach"
  9. Lineup 2018

    Anyone fill me in on the hate for Dudey Rhino on here? Just seems like a guy who likes his music and hates his shit festival line ups.
  10. Lineup 2018

    2008. The only act in the top two over the weekend was Bloc Party. Also The Libertines in 2010.
  11. Lineup 2018

    Gaslight Anthem 4th down on FOB day, Manics or Pixies headlining NME on Kendrick day. I wouldn't say I've fixed it, but I've given those many cracks a good old papering.
  12. Lineup 2018

    They didn't even have the mercy to at least give us The Gaslight Anthem.
  13. Lineup 2018

    "Who are Arcade Fire? The Libertines should be headlining!" Hard to imagine the festival having NOFX, Weezer, Modest Mouse and Cypress Hill all on the Main Stage these days.
  14. Lineup 2018

    I think another factor of that is that they've gotten a few acts that V may have taken this year. The festival got slated for having My Chemical Romance but they were still much bigger than Fall Out Boy. We'll never get someone like Pulp again though, which is sad.
  15. Lineup 2018

    Looking back, 2010's headliners were very weak. They had Guns N' Roses who weren't actually the real Guns N' Roses, a then unproven Arcade Fire who were bumped up, and then Blink 182 who never headlined even in their prime. But at least that year had a ridiculously strong undercard. You just know that this year is going to see whoever the flavour of the month pushed up to 3rd, surrounded by a load of hype acts no one will remember in a couple of years time.
