Jane Weaver played two years ago, I recall, and haven't Los Campesinos been on before

As much as I like St Vincent, would be a bit of a lazy booking seeing as she has headlined solo quite recently, and also with David Byrne.

I wonder if we might see Mogwai back and, given the links, if Ezra might be promoted to Woods headliner? Not that I think that 'should' happen...

I've basically given up hope of SVE ever playing after wishing for it to happen every year.

I'm hoping for 

LCD Soundsystem - new album and no uk fest stuff this year

Fleet Foxes- same as above

Grizzly Bear- same as above

Courtney Barnett and Kurt Vile- very Eotr music and neither have played i think?

The Growlers- eotr style music and were fantastic at dot to dot, dont think they've played before

King Krule- hasn't played before and new album

Homeshake- hasn't played before

Sunflower Bean - great at bennicassim

The Drums- new album

Cherry Glazerr - great at dot to dot and not sure if played before

Radiator Hospital - new album

Twin Peaks - new music, great at benicassim, would fill the Parquet Courts slot well

Childhood- interesting and upcoming uk band, would be the cult underdog HMLTD was this year

Kurt Vile and The Growlers have played before. The Growlers did a secret set "in disguise" when they played. I say "in disguise", but they basically blacked up.

Yeah kurt Vile played in the big top. Agree about St Vincent played twice and not so long back. So would not be overly keen with a return yet. Its been a long time since Calexico played.

From the same year that Calexico last played, I'm amazed that Mercury Rev haven't played again since. Especially now that they're on Bella Union

A playlist of some of the bands I've seen in the nine years I've been going. The great thing is every song brings a memory of EOTR for me.

Definitely do me for starters! 

Was convinced Mercury Rev would play a couple of years ago (or was it last year?) when they signed to Bella Union.

Was also convinced BSP would play this year with the new album out. Possibly too soon since their last appearance in which case definitely next year!

And Tindersticks are the reason I first came to End Of The Road (having not been to a festival since Reading 1991) and have been coming ever since, 6 in a row now.

Deposit paid for next year anyway, I trust that I'll enjoy the line up whatever.

I am a big BSP fan and am always hopeful. Festival slots don't always suit them (too early, too bright, too big a stage) but their set in 2014 was suberb on the GS just as it was getting dark. I really hope they will return next year.

The Goon Sax would be a nice Tipi band...pretty raucous live...compared to the record...which is decent in its own right

Thanks to Spotify, I've just discovered the easy going American folk rock of Actual Wolf. This would fit right in at EOTR:

Good call - love his new(ish) album. An act for Tipi I think

He would be great in the Tipi but I think he's too big now and will only grow by next year, I could see him occupying a similar spot to Lemon Twigs or Car Seat Headrest

Would love to see GY!BE headline. Feist, St Vincent, Fiona Apple, Sleater-Kinney would also be v buzzing headline lads.

I thought Sharon Van Etten was taking abit of time out from music? Would love to see her again - she's ace.

Love her so much, outstanding live, but I reckon she's still at university #freshers #downinone #doyoutakeNUS?
