    Oh God! It looks far, FAR worse when laid out like that. Hard decisions will have to be made!

    Predictions for 2018

    Doesn't look too bad. Really hoping that they put all the Big Top headliners on late again, after the Woods and Garden headliners as that will free up some pretty nasty looking clashes. Biggest concerns are Destroyer up against Hookworms and being stuck inside the Big Top for a lot of Sunday when I want to see a fair amount of stuff elsewhere. That AK/DK, Posies, Amen Dunes and Japanese Breakfast run is rather tasty!

    Nice! Some good additions there. Particularly pleased with The Posies, Screaming Females, Bas Jan and Kiran Leonard.

    Which artists on which stages?

    I can't see Hookworms on one of the outdoor stages, personally. I gather that their current set up has a lot of visuals/projections, so I'd imagine they'd be in the Big Top again. Think I agree with your Garden Stage headliners. Other than that, I'm clueless.

    Billy's a local lad and yet I've never actually seen him perform. Seen him around town plenty and his face is plastered on a wall in Rochester now. Makes a change from all the Dickens nonsense!

    Ha! They've really messed up in a few of their communications this year. Claims that St Vincent and Yo La Tengo have never headlined before are the ones that have got me.

    You do realise I was taking the piss, right?

    First announcement 2018

    Nice additions. Titus Andro, Lucy Dacus, Haley Heynederickx all the get the thumbs up from me. Soccer Mommy and Orielles albums need to be listened to again. All good stuff.

    If we're clutching at straws from random collections of words in tweets then this clearly references This Is Happening And the latest one is a reference to All My Friends and therefore LCD Soundsystem are definitely playing.

    I think they're absolute toilet, mate.

    First announcement 2018

    It doesn't usually sell out until about 4-6 weeks before. This year might be different with Glastonbury not being on, but I'll be stunned if it sells out before the beginning of July. There were approximately 100 musical acts over the whole weekend last year, and 62 acts announced so far this year. We're still in for another fairly hefty announcement, which is likely to include some pretty decent sized acts. It's far from done.

    They didn't, they were in the Big Top. Unless there was a secret set that I missed. They were phenomenal that year though. Such a great band.
