Let's pick the remaining acts for EOTR 2012

32 posts in this topic

It's been a while since the first band announcement for EOTR 2012, so in lieu of the next one, I thought some wishful thinking and idle conjecture would be a good thing. Four important questions, to which I've provided my own answers. Who would you choose?

Top wishes to fill the remaining two headline slots on the Woods Stage (keep them realistic but hopeful, i.e. not Neil Young)

For me: The Decemberists, My Morning Jacket

An "Alternative pop" act to follow in the footsteps of Lykke Li

Peter, Bjorn and John or Belle and Sebastian

Indie/Blues/Psych Rock headliners for the Big Top

The Black Keys or Black Lips. Or failing that anyone else with Black in the name, but not Black Mountain or The Black Angels, we've had them, good though they were

A new band to get there at all costs

Of Monsters And Men

Some good calls guys. I can see them offering something new while also fitting with the EOTR atmosphere. The Shins have a new album out this year. It would be fantastic to see them appear.

For another band with Black in the title, as "Big Top Psychedelic Dirgy Indie Headliner" (in the most positive way), what about Black Rebel Motorcycle Club? .....Blaaaaaaack! (Fast Show fans rejoice)

For what it's worth. No, really...

Great Lake Swimmers (top new album in April), Sufjan (I know!!), Bonnie Prince Billy if Sufjan can't make it.

Peter, Bjorn and John or Belle and Sebastian

Harlowe and the Great North Woods, Be-Good tanyas, bring back Iron and Wine too

Lambchop (lovely new album in Feb), Gillian Welch,

Not a new band but we need Woodpigeon back at all costs. The world loves Mark Hamilton and Mark Hamilton loves the world, I think. (there's a very special digital ep from Woodpigeon released on Mon 23 Jan)

Very happy with the shouts for The Shins, although not sure whether the Sony backed Mr Mercer is a bit commercially minded for EOTR or if they are more Garden Stage? If not, then Leonard Cohen might do. :)

Anyhow, one of them if poss plus a little band called Sigur Ros who are supposed to be back in studio this year.

Not quite Ms Li, but lots of fun: I'd choose Yeasayer (new album overdue). Could however easily see SSVIIB doing it, given new album this year and their Bella Union label

Indie/Blues/Psych Rock headliners for the Big Top

War on Drugs, or ideally Menomena (although they are a sure fire thing for the Garden Stage really)

A new band to get there at all costs

Youth Lagoon

Also, can I add another category?

The Scots band

Following on from Meursault, Admiral Fallow and others, can we have The Twilight Sad or Frightened Rabbit (or both) please?

Would be more than happy with the aforementioned Bon Iver, Sufjan Stevens or Sigur Ros

For the alternative 'Joanna Newsom' slot I reckon Animal Collective could be good.

Would love to see Deerhunter for an early evening set.

Little Dragon, Blonde Redhead, M83 or Fever Ray

Sorry, I'm too lazy to sort these into the 4 headings, but any of the following would be most welcome:

Akron Family

Gregory Alan Isakov

Liam Finn

Ay Ducane

Monument Valley

Marcus Foster

Fanfarlo

Bony King of Nowhere

Daughter

Edward Sharpe & The Magnetic Zeros

Neil Young (yeah ok I'm being optimistic)

Singing Adams

Cass McCombs

Damien Jurado

Dignan Porch

The Minders (please please please!)

Delta Spirit

Radical Face (or any of Ben Cooper's projects)

Electric Owls

Owen Pallett (on his own, not as a collaboration with some orchestra)

Kings of Convenience

Vadoinmessico

Her Space Holiday

Toumani Dibate

The Black Atlantic (not Indie/Blues/Psych but it fits the Black in the name requirement)

Bon Iver (rather see him that Fleet Foxes again if we're talking something slightly more mainstream for a headliner)

John Vanderslice

Josh Ritter

Dr Dog

Mark Kozelek

Jason Lytle

Portugal. The Man

Seawolf

The Boy Least Likely To

Mary Lou Lord

Withered Hand

Lots of new albums due from the list above, so quite a few will be touring I guess, and yeah I wouldn’t be adverse to Gaslight Anthem either - I’m not a huge fan but I’ve seen them before and they do give it their all live.

Lots of strange suggestions in this thread! The Black Keys are massive now and are more likely to be second headliner at Reading rather than headlining the second stage at EotR Also someone suggesting Belle and Sebastian but not as headliners - it's not going to happen! Also whoever called for Animal Collective obviously didn't see their terrible headlining set at Green Man a few years back.

Being realistic: Spiritualized and The Shins

An "Alternative pop" act to follow in the footsteps of Lykke Li

Deerhunter

Indie/Blues/Psych Rock headliners for the Big Top

Caribou Vibration Ensemble (okay, not going to happen!)

Also Caribou aren't playing Bestival are they? Isn't it just a DJ set with Four Tet? Not the same thing and nowhere near as interesting.

Three words really: Great Lake Swimmers.

That would be a dream come true.

Fingers crossed.

Spiritualized and Wilco just announced for Wilderness, about 3 weeks before EoTR. Anyone want to speculate whether that makes them more or less likely to play EoTR? (I'd have thought less, though neither of them seem to be exclusives...)

They've just tweeted that they are announcing the Sunday night headliner and some other bands at 10am tomorrow :)

Hmmm....the day after Wilderness and Electric Picnic announce bands....wondering even more if we'll get any overlap. Like for example if they had to hold off announcing Sigur Ros until EP did....

http://www.efestivals.co.uk/news/12/120301g.shtml (I could see some more of those EP bands doubling up at EoTR....) or some Wildnerness ones http://www.efestivals.co.uk/news/12/120301c.shtml
