i'm still trying to decide on a 3rd festival for this year, latitude seems to be top of the list at the moment but it will depend on how easily i can get there. it always has a line up that really appeals to me.

Radiohead at Latitude? No chance.

Would take a lot to get me back there to be honest, there was something about Latitude that just didn't work for me but obviously does for many others so I'm glad about that.

Although the Gaslight Anthem playing would probably make me buy a day ticket or work it again haha

It'd be a bit out of character for Latitude to book a headliner with the calibre of The Cure, unless they're trying to show ambitions to be a bigger festival.

It might fit in well with the ethic and whatnot, but they're miles bigger than any of the headliners that they've had before. Plus, if they're playing Bilbao BBK as is widely rumoured, they'd have to peg it back to the UK. Seems more likely to me that they'll stick around and play something in Portugal too.

I think Mumford & Sons makes sense though.

I've had a look on that but i can only see March dates, what suggests she's playing latitude or have they removed the dates?

I'm tempted by Latitude this year, i'm only 20 miles away and if the Mumford rumour becomes reality then i'm there. Throw in The Vaccines too then i'll be happy.

yeah...just a rumour before. Not a massive Cure fan myself but my missus loves 'em which means I'll have do less begging than normal. Be our first time at Latitude but looking forward to it.

I just can't see The Cure been here and I'm a bit surprised they're a strong rumour for the simple reason 3 gigs in 3 countries is too much.

Travelling from Bilbao to Lisbon is not too bad, but to go then to Latitude is too much imo. For a start they won't be finishing their set in Lisbon till around 2 - 2:30am I'd imagine. Considering they play for around 2 and a half hours they'd have to get to begin their Latitude set around 8:30pm. That leaves 18 hours. 18 hours for them to:

Leave the stage in Lisbon
Travel to their hotel
Get a good nights rest
Travel from the hotel to the airport
Catch a flight to London
Travel from London to arrive at Latitude
Set up equipment

That would be a lot of travelling. After having a show in Bilbao only the day before Lisbon I can't see it happening. I read a piece with Rob Da Bank yesterday about Robert Smith how thorough he is, will only do something if it's absolutely correct and if it's planned perfectly. I can't see him agreeing to 3 festivals in 3 different countries. Especially when it is to do with Latitude. No offence to the place but it's a medium sized festival. It would be a large coup for Latitude to get them. I can't see why The Cure, being a fairly large band would be utterly desperate to play and that they'd go to that much trouble just to do so.

And as for the map that's just rumours. I've also seen a further map where the UK point is in London. Unlike other larger countries it's much harder to pinpoint where the green point on the blurred image on the Cure's website could be for.

Either you're every quiet at work or you have to much spare time on your hands...that said, some good points chap!

Hoping for Elbow myself...

With Big Chill cancelled, I'm guessing FR will have more dollar to spunk on the line up & no Glasto on has freed up availability to book larger acts.

Elbow is a good shout, seems like the perfect audience for them & need to headline something.

Big Chill being cancelled wo'ty free any further funds for bigger bookings for other fests. And it's likely to make the bookings more expense all around their fests, because there's less opportunity to do any sort of block bookings and get a reduced fee by doing so.

Glasto not happening makes no difference to anything, aside from freeing up three extra bands that could be booked and claimed as an exclusive.

Would they end up with The Cure, Elbow, Noel Gallagher as their acts with The Cure being a possible UK, more likely england exclusive).
