    Will have to check this out! From many visits to Sounds of Frome I’ve gotten to know one of the members who works there.

    2019 Headliners

    It’d be a shame if Arctic Monkeys aren’t there as it’d ruin their streak of headlining after a fallow year. Just gotta happen!

    2019 Headliners

    Completely forgot that this happened! Wasn’t able to attend the Sunday of last years festival so it kind of escaped my attention.

    2019 Headliners

    Do I dare to bring up the classic “Are Biffy Clyro big enough to headline?” talking point? I think they have a very strong back catalogue, and the last couple of times I’ve seen them (both at Reading) they just had the most almighty big sound. Some may say they seem irrelevant which is a perfectly valid point, but with plans for album plans for 2018, it may well help fling them back into the public eye. https://www.google.co.uk/amp/amp.timeinc.net/nme/news/music/biffy-clyro-new-album-plans-2018-2205735%3fsource=dam

    God that 2016 lineup looks good on the back of yesterday’s announcement, doesn’t it!?

    Why did they book the Horrors!? It ruins the pattern of every act having two words starting with the same letter!

    BMTH would’ve been a great headliner too. Would’ve been a R+L success story to have them on the top of the bill after working their way up. Would’ve resonated with a large segment of the demographic. Doesn’t mean they can’t do 2019, but it might’ve been a very good thing to do it this year.

    What’s more is that they obviously thought they could rest on the fact that they got KOL as being a stronger/bigger headliner. Yet really they’ve been stagnating for a good while yet. Cardboard cutouts would do just the same job.

    Lineup 2018

    This is a sad sad day. Lack of innovation and creativity and frankly effort to put together an attractive lineup. Agree with @losing44, the rock bands on there are very surface level. What was a festival that had me literally running from stage to stage to see all the act I wanted to see fills me with disbelief nowadays. 1st time in 9 years I might not go.

    If the two stage thing materialises, I hope that it doesn’t dilute the quality or strength of the headliners and or Co headliners. I worry that it might be an excuse for the lack of big names, especially in these early announcements.

    30 Seconds to Mars (I know they’re not everyone’s cuppa tea) Would alt-j be possible for Co headlining, I know they’re playing Latitude? Cant think of any other particular viable options due to tour dates.

    To be fair a set of cardboard cutouts for KOL would do the trick fine and save a hell of a lot of dosh. Would be a poor booking. All the other mentioned names seem very appealing indeed. Though I’ve heard Kendrick being notoriously expensive to book I think R+L would be mad not to book him. Tremendous appreciation amongst all kinds of music fans, failing not to mention the younger newer demographic that is keen on the rap/hip hop/grime. I think if the new 2 stage format goes ahead it’ll open us up for the likelihood of more Co headlining. Household R+L names who might not occupy the full headliner status. Royal Blood, I know Alt-j are at Latitude but that kind of act, XX. The third evening I have not a clue I don’t think I’ll be disappointed but I’m not expecting much at all.
