With the 2012 forum slipping down the page and all the discussions done surrounding it, i think its time to strike up next years plans and thoughts. I'll start the ball rolling !

Shame we didnt have a forum for seperate topics witin the forum section but thats being considered, and after nearly 2700 posts in last years trawl i would hope so, as looking back or trying to find stuff became very time consuming.

It may be just over 11 months away but id be bored without some discussion about it so here goes, a lot of the main stage acts will depend on who's touring and who's not next year, its obviously too far away to tell with any accuracy who'll be doing the rounds but thinking about bands that will be producing new material and who fit in to the affordability bracket i'll plug for a few of the following ! -

2 door cinema club
Example
Bombay BC
Spiritualized
Scissor Sisters
Embrace
Vaccines
Frank Turner
Razorlight
Paul Weller
Alabama Shakes
Courteeners
Little Comets
Tunng
Bloc Party

As usual at this time of year we'll be lucky if theres a 100 posts by december ! Lets see whos still out there

Some good choices...and Paul Weller (dreary arsed shitebag). Be happy if Scissor Sisters were the 'dance' headliner...although Dizzee was phenomenal this year! (can't believe you didnt go in the end!)

Primal Scream could be a good shout...great way to round off the weekend. Yeah, just don't get the Lancashire Hotpots...its got no musical merit and its not funny so can't see what the attraction is.

Wouldnt mind Basement Jaxx as the Friday night dance act...

Would imagine they would again...and I reckon our lot will try to book them. Might as well, just the Thursday and Emperors to book in the new year then. Take it you are??

Oh, gonna add Bibelots and Deadbeat Echoes to my list of likelies.

What's the point you still have to buy the extras on general release and if you get your finger out everyone always seems to get what they want, also do you buy them direct or is it through a ticket agent for the pre sale?

the november release last year got you tickets at the 2011 price, tenner cheaper, also gave you the comfort of having an early buy option on emperors and campervan tickets which saved a bit of grief and stress on release day.

Dare say if the options there again this year i'll snap it up, did anyone catch Admiral Fallow this year ? heard they were pretty decent and see theyve got a tour in december which i might try and get tickets for, Cluny in Newcastle which is an excellent small venue, had a bit of a laugh to myself as the cluny also have serious sam barrett listed, who knows if he ever appeared at Kendal, after being the first confirmation that we knew about

Friday : Alabama Shakes, King Charles,The Wailers , HotChip. Calvin Harris
Saturday : Kassidy, Cast, Glasvegas, Echo and The Bunnymen, Charlatans
Sunday : Jake Bugg, Candi Staton, The Shamen, Happy Mondays, Richard Ashcroft, Kasabian

I know, I know, I know that we`ve already had the Kasabian are too big discussion BUT I`m basing this on the fact that they have headlined T and Reading / Leeds 2012 and as a hard working band, where else are they going to play. They aint going to get a headline slot at Glastonbury surely. I also think they are the type of big ticket sellers that the organisers are looking to book as they look to expand - another arguement altogether.
If Lippy`s right and they secure Jimmy Cliff then for me nothing else matters.

Reckon Ashcroft is probably too big to headline even without Kasabian...if you switched Ashcroft to headline over Charlies on the Saturday and had Mondays as the Sunday night headliner could see that happening maybe. I'd be a bit worried if they got Kasabian to headline...the festivals I've been to where they've played/headlined have tended to be quite rough crowds. Think a combination of the, pardon my French, knobheads who like dance music, drunken teens and Kasabian fans would make for quite an aggressive atmosphere. And they talk utter utter crap...one day they're banging on about how Danny Boyle missed a trick by not getting them to play 'Fire' at the Olympic opening ceremony, then the day after were saying they didn't want to play...grow up!

Richard Ashcroft would make a good headline act, seen him several times playing solo as well as with the verve and enjoyed all the sets ive seen, certainly a decent back catalogue thats well enough known to get a good reaction from the masses.

The Kasabian issues a whole different ball game, i know they played rockness which has a capacity of around 35k, the capacity for kendal next year will be around 17k including staff and bands, i cant imagine the revenue generated from the crowd being enough to even dream about getting Kasabian to headline and if they did i would imagine theyd have a budget of a fiver to book the remainder of the card, The best idea is to spread the cost over the card and book stages with strength in depth to attract an audience that will be spread over different stages in the venue Unless Kendal manage to slip another 20 to 25k people in to the venue its not gonna happen for a long long time, maybes in years to come and with less popularity as theyre sliding down the scale they may appear.

You were at Wickerman, and apart from the top 3 to 4 acts on the main stage the rest of the card was pretty weak, to me that shows where a majority of the budget went, this became pretty obvious when you wandered around the tents mid to late afternoon to acts that were playing to 30 people, even the main stage was pretty empty until after 7pm. As good as they may have been the 4th and 5th from top on the main stage one day were Bis and Skerryvore, maybes its my ignorance but id heard of neither and couldnt imagine them being the main reason people went to the festival.

Id go with ........

Two Door Cinema Club
Primal Scream
Courteeners

Impossible to get Kasabian, way way way out of their budget. Think people like Jake Bugg and King Charles will be up there near headlining and they willl as always have a strong dance stage lineup.

Cant wait for next year already, really not fussed that Im missing Leeds Fest this year as Kendal has got me now.
