Both Count Of Ten festivals so they'll be sharing at least one headliner I'd have thought

No longer Count of Ten festivals.

Tramlines is run by Sheffield venues. Truck and Y Not are now part of the Global Live/Festivals and Broadwick Live portfolios

But Y Not / Truck / Tramlines will be sharing the odd act!

I can see The Libertines doing it. They are big in terms of popularity, but not too big to turn down a festival of this size. Small for them, but a huge headliner for Truck.

Courteeners also a possibility? Who knows, just have to wait!

The Libs are way too big for truck, they headlined reading only 2 years ago, no way will they agree to headline truck, or that truck can even afford them. 

My money is on Frank Turne, he headlined Wood Festival a few years ago who's run by the guys who run Truck and apparently still gets on really well with them. 

Another outsider could be the Kaiser Chiefs, doing a big arena tour and free around that weekend.

Tbf the libertines rely on their old success and their reading crowd was a lot smaller than most of the other Reading headliners. If it is true and Truck have booked a bigger headliner than expected I could see them throwing money and potentially being able to attract the libertines especially with tickets being more expensive... We'll have to see come next monday though...

It will not be the Libertines! If it is I promise to never post on here again. I'm confident Libs will not do it.

If Truck are going for the typical Libertines crowd they'd book someone like Courteeners who would be a lot cheaper and probably go down better as they're a lot more relevant.

Nobody's mentioned The Kooks yet, they're going on a big tour and would perfect headliner size.

I imagine Blossoms could headline to be honest. Something like them Jake Bugg and Franz Ferdinand

happiness or sadness?

I'd agree that libs are too big as much as I would love them to play.

The Kooks, not a bad shout there.

Bastille? thoughts?

Source?

I've never got this. When people ask for a source. What you expecting in reply. Festival organisers, press team, knows a band member...;.

You will find out if the person is a billy bullshitter when the line up gets released.

This response makes me think it is The Libertines

Im guessing at Truck,  Ynot and Tramlines to announce the Libertines on Monday and Tuesday.   Tramlines in paticular gave a hint at them through facebook/twitter.

I'd be surprised if it is libertines - not heard their name once in regards to truck. That doesn't mean they're not playing though

Do we think just one headliner tomorrow or 2? Hoping for at least one of Stereophonics, Frank Turner or Prodigy.

Surely that's a huge step down for The Libertines.

Or those festivals are trying to make a statement and take punters away from Reading and Leeds? Especially when there lineups are having more and more hip hop and less indie bands.
