They get a massive following going to see them at Leeds every couple of years anyway so why cut that down to every four or five years minimum to give them a headline slot now? They're already a headliner to that mob so might as well book however many actual ones for everyone else.

Fair.

Why do people keep predicting PATD in such stupidly high slots?

Still maintain next time they play they will be a logo band, last album did really well and they sold out two ally pally shows alongside other 2016 shows

Kendrick Lamar / Two door cinema club / Panic at the disco

Arctic monkeys / The courteeners / Slaves

Paramore / Enter shikari / All time tow

Can't see Two Door subbing. Good live band, but had a small NME stage crowd (admittedly against RHCP) and the new album is unlikely to excel them that much, unless the 4th album can do that. Can't see PATD any higher than 5th main/3rd NME, like in 2015

Panic! seem to have had a bit of a commercial renaissance as of late (for some reason) so i'd definitely think they'd get a better slot than last time round, even if it is just one place up on main

They played 5th main in 2015 and since then have had a very successful album and sold out two nights at Ally Pally. They're not popular on this forum but i guarantee that next time they play they will be a logo band, either 3rd main or headlining NME. They did a co-headline tour with Weezer aswell, you're underestimating their popularity with the younger audience that makes up a majority of the crowd now.

Panic! have done the reverse of Fall Out Boy. They're much better at being a pop band than a rock band. Where as FOB are shite at being a pop band and should go back to playing rock. They're much better at it.

Panic! were never a rock band anyway, they just liked to think they were! 

Agreed on FOB, last album was shit.

First album was Pop Punk, Second was Pysch Pop/Rock, their third was Alt Rock. The latest two have been straight up Pop. They were a rock band, although have always been on the poppier side of rock.

They're considerably better at Pop than Fall Out Boy are to say the least.

Didn't Panic sell out 2 Ally Pally shows? No way they're not playing higher than they did in 2015.

Exactly what i was saying. People seem to dismiss them because they dislike them. Im not a big fan but how they can deny they are on the up is past me.

They're touting Tame Impala for co-headlining, yet Panic sold out just as many days at Ally Pally as they did.

They are touting RB too so, it's basically who they want over anything else.

Have you heard the latest FoB album? It's pop and there's no way you could argue otherwise.

I'm not saying it isn't, I'm saying it's shite and they are bad at it.

So a band that makes pop music isn't a pop band just because they're bad at it?

P sure half the people touting them (myself included) wouldn't even want them as a headliner.

They changed from what they were good at, it's just my opinion, I'm not asking anyone to agree.

If you listen to their earlier stuff, it's quite easy to see that they weren't a pop band however.

Thinking it's quite possible we see them bumping a couple of bands to outright headline in 2018 with no competition from Glastonbury so they can afford to be a little more risky.

Could see something like: Royal Blood / BMTH / Muse or Foo Fighters

They could probably go the other way with that though - book stronger without Glastonbury and try and scoop up some of that crowd. Would say Foos, Arctics and Royal Blood but at least one of the first two will probably be doing stadiums instead.

Arctic Monkeys is a shout, I don't see any scenario in which BMTH don't headline in 2018 however, they're the perfect R&L band and will have a new album, it's just too perfect timing to miss.

Royal Blood / BMTH / Foos, Muse or Arctic Monkeys wouldn't look that weak provided Royal Blood and BMTHs next albums are successful which in all likelihood they will be

Yeah that's all true enough. That'd probably be hella strong in two years' time actually.

Maybe just my ignorance, but whilst I recognise Royal Blood are getting big, are they ever going to get to the point people would pay headline money to see. 

From my experience with them, everyone seems to like Royal Blood, but nobody seems to love them.
