  1. Bigger banger than anything Maiden have ever put out.
  2. Massive Die Antwoord vibes but somehow even more unsuited. I’d love it.
  3. Just get 100 gecs and be done with it.
  4. I genuinely think a band like CHVRCHES would get a decent reaction at DL but it’s the slot they would get. They’re a pretty big band who regularly sell out academy tours so they would probs need to be a logo act. And if they got low balled, why would they accept it? I think they just need to get Ghostemane. There’s a performance on YouTube from something like Lolapalooza Paris (don't quote that) and he’s insane. Download would eat that shit up.
  5. If DL had the balls we could hopefully get a day like this: The Cure / Deftones / Placebo / IDLES / Ministry / Deafheaven / Helmet / Nova Twins* * just whacked them in because it’s inevitable like Wargasm (they are much better though).
  6. Which is madness. Imagine a Placebo greatest hits set closing out the second stage. Similar to Weezer, really. How on Earth that band hasn’t played 70mins of bangers to a crowd in the setting sun is mental. Sonisphere got them.
  7. NBT are whack, bro. I’m playing Devil’s advocate here but if they subbed before Architects, Shikari etc. I’d understand the backlash 😂
  8. I’m going to predict that we will get a left of centre second stage headliner. My vote is Don Broco. The fact that they’re considered left of centre is pathetic because they’re a massive arena band but that’s the world DL lives in. If they do get booked, they will be the biggest party of the weekend.
  9. Too big for that and that would absolutely play up to the shit DL habit of putting exciting acts on small stages. IDLES could easily headline second or play third down Main.
  10. IDLES would be a fantastic booking for Download.
  11. That's both awesome and insane about Turnstile subbing Metallica. So unbelievably cool to hear. If I was booking DL, I'd be going all in on Turnstile and giving them a third down Main Stage slot.
  12. I was also told the same info, that Parkway were booked to play the Sunday and they weren’t sure if they were headlining or subbing. That comes from the first source before I got told GNR by someone else (who also had Metallica x2 and BMTH).
  13. Download should book Run The Jewels in a high position for sure. Acts like Denzel Curry, 100 gecs and Ghostemane in particular would go down well too, I’m sure. Ghostemane is one of the most exciting and experimental artist they could book. I saw him headline the Pit tent at leeds a couple years ago and it was as wild as any hardcore/metal act you can name. I watched Dana Dentata this year on the Dogtooth and the tent was busy. Granted, a large contingent looked a bit confused but plenty more were loving it. It sounds simplistic af but it proves to me that the genre doesn’t matter; if the music makes you want to move and the vocals are confrontational/aggressive, people will enjoy it. Ghostemane, Denzel Curry, 100 gecs, $uicideboy$, City Morgue, Ho99o9, Scarlxrd would all go down a storm at Download.
  14. Download hasn’t been at capacity since 2010. One of the admins on the official DL forums who is involved with the festival said that it averages between 70-90k most years (I’m sure that was the number stated). It hasn’t reached 100k and over in a long, long time and never has consistently.
  15. BMTH are in no way a weak headliner.
