By 2018 I think they'd be big enough coheadliners by R&L standards, providing their next album doesn't flop. Bear in mind both Foals & Tame Impala are Pyramid sub headliners at Glastonbury this year so I'd say they're pretty similar in size rn. However I take your point that R&L have pushed for Foals a lot more.

Very true, however if they play next year they i can't see them headlining, they'd need to hold off another year then put out a successful album, definitely potential provided they do put out a strong album, however i'd hope after this year having two co-headlines we get a couple years without them doing it again. co-headliners just don't have the same impact an outright headliner does for me.

This is the 2018 thread, not the 2017 thread ;)

I know, was just bringing up the fact that should they play next year there's not a chance they'll headline 2018, i kinda get the feeling they will sub next year then return as co-headliners/headliners in 2019/2020

Ahh sorry I get you. Yeah that's also a possibility - either way I think they'll be playing very high up on the main stage within the next few years

We really can't make any kind of accurate guesses at this time, two years is a long time in the music industry, bands could break up, bands could reform, bands could drop off the face of the earth or catapult to being huge in that time. For all we know come 2018 someone like Catfish could be co-headlining, unlikely but if this album is a success and they release another that does well who knows...

9/10 Arctic Monkeys will headline in 2018

Depends when their next album is released. They'd probably do Glastonbury before R+L so unless they've got it out in time for festival season next year i don't see it until 2019 and as Alex Turner is touring TLSP all summer it'd have to be rushed to get a new Arctics album out.

I don't think they'll do Glastonbury before R&L necessarily.. AM last headlined there in 2013 and Glastonbury tend to have bigger gaps than R&L between rebooking headliners. I wouldn't be surprised if they play R&L before Glastonbury again

Say they aren't touring until 2018, that will have been 5 years, pretty big gap and they're one of the biggest bands in the UK, i still think Glastonbury would go after them unless they had other massive headliners/reunion headliners already booked

Yeah I still thank Arctic Monkeys will be a 'second option' for Glastonbury. I know AM hadn't actually been released when they last headlined but it was part of the AM tour, so that would mean really they've only released one album since their last headline if they play in 2018. I'm not saying I don't think they'll play Glastonbury that year, I just think it's more likely they'll do R&L instead, or even T in the Park or Isle of Wight - there's a few festivals that would probably go for them before Glastonbury.

Aren't glastonbury having a fallow year in '18 so won't be booking anybody?

It's not certain when the fallow year is going to be, but right now it looks like it'll be 2019 and there's rumours they'll be holding another event at Longleat that year too.

Surely they'll have finished touring by this time next year. This is the second summer touring Currents.

I think Tame Impala are more likely to headline Coachella in 2018 than Reading and Leeds. Also I think The Courteeners could maybe be an outside bet for a co-headline slot in 2018, not a massive fan but they've been drawing some huge crowds this year.

Is Coachella moving to August Bank Holiday weekend too or something?

BMTH are seemingly more possible for next year.

No reason why they couldn't do both but considering the lack of Tame Impala being booked recently for R&L I doubt it.

I know its possible they could do both but I just think Coachella seems to be more like their festival than Reading and Leeds (it helped to break them in america and they subbed AC/DC last time they played).

It is but still has no relation to R&L.

The Courteeners will never headline, they've never been huge and the fact they played 3rd top this year was generous, the festivals aren't in Manchester therefore they aren't going to headline.

The Courteeners certainly got bigger than i ever fathomed they would, but headlining a major fest seems like a huge push for them. there really isn't that much to them and their days of having big singles are over. reckon third is about as high as they'll ever get. there are far more other acts who currently seem better poised to take the step up than they do

The 1975/Imagine Dragons - BBK

Foo Fighters - Frank Turner

Arctic Monkeys - The Vaccines

Chvrches, Wolf Alice and some generic dance act for NME headliners

edit: Skepta isn't playing twice
