    Parkway Drive are absolutely on their way to headlining. It wouldn’t surprise me if they are big enough for it on their next album cycle, so probably looking at 4 years away at least. I’m going to put down my three headliners for 2019 as of now just incase I end up being on the money this far out Bring Me The Horizon, Rammstein, KISS.

    It’s got to be Horizon’s time, surely. Especially if they have a new album out.

    Rammstein’s album is going to be out by the end of the year so I think that puts them firmly in the frame unless they decide to hit up a big arena tour.

    BMTH, Slipknot & Iron Maiden. Chance of Kiss and Rammstein too I’d say.

    Weird comment. He just prefers dream State. I listened to Dream State after some guys camped behind us kept going on about them but I don’t like them at all. They’re just Tonight Alive from a few years ago.

    Greta Van Fleet are going to blow up something ridiculous. They will be mid main stage next time they play, I would wager on it.

    With MCR being a pipedream, realistically, Bring Me The Horizon subbed by Architects is what is needed on the Friday. It'd be so good for the UK scene.

    My Chemical Romance / Enter Shikari / Architects / Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes / While She Sleeps / State Champs / Milk Teeth Ghost / Behemoth Slipknot / Five Finger Death Punch / Trivium / Lamb of God / Coheed and Cambria / Code Orange / Power Trip / Cane Hill Within Temptation / Alestorm KISS / Judas Priest / Halestorm / Clutch / Amon Amarth / Arch Enemy / Tyler Bryant & The Shakedown / The Raven Age Killswitch Engage / Gojira I considered having Don Broco as a second stage headliner.

    Download is a different place now. They wouldn’t get bottled. They’d get a hero’s welcome, I am absolutely certain.

    No they couldn’t. They aren’t anywhere near headliner size. I think they’d be an excellent sub, however.

    They would never do that. They are the kind of band to dwell on the past, no matter how awesome it would be.

    Volbeat are absolutely massive all over Europe and are a festival headliner and a stadium band. Playing to such a big crowd at Download this year will have done them wonders in the UK. They were really great. I decided to run a bit of a poll over the weekend and I was asking people whether they think Five Finger Death Punch are now ready to headline Download and the response was very mixed. I must have asked 60 odd different people and it was pretty even. A lot of people said no because they haven’t consistently sold out arenas and that is what a headliner needs to do, whilst a lot of people said that they are ready for the push and would welcome a new headliner. They weren’t even there this year and so many people were wearing their merch. Architects and them had more people wearing their merch than half of the bigger bands on the lineup.

    New headliners as in bands being bumped up to headline Download for the first time (so not bands like Blink, Paramore etc. who have already headlined other U.K. festivals) ? If that’s the case, then the following within the next few years: Bring Me The Horizon, A Day To Remember, Five Finger Death Punch, Volbeat, KoRn. Looking beyond that: Parkway Drive, Architects, Ghost. BFMV are just too irrelevant I think and do not warrant that headline slot.

    Not a chance. I loudly laughed when Matt Tuck said ‘Who knows, maybe in 2 or 3 years we will be headlining’ whilst on stage. They’re irrelevant. They played a good set but there just a nostalgia band now who should be nowhere near subbing. The did nothing to suggest otherwise.

    If Architects have an album out in time then I think they’re a strong candidate to sub the main stage next year or play third down. They had by far the most merch on display at the weekend. It felt like I was never out of sight of their logo. Lots of people I chatted to were speaking about them too. With Parkway Drive moving into arenas, I think that is the same size tour that Architects will be going for. BMTH / Deftones / Architects. or BMTH / Architects Book it.

    I'm just going to do my Top 10 of the weekend and then a few others. 1. Parkway Drive 10/10. Absolutely incredible. This was the set I was anticipating the most and they absolutely smashed it.The setlist was wonderful (even if they dropped Carrion), the stage show was immense and the crowd was great. I had such a good time for the entirety of the set. I am so stoked that they are moving into arenas on this tour. This band are future headliners of Download for sure. 2. Marilyn Manson. 9/10. WOW. Where has this Manson been hiding the last few times he has played Download? I thought he was incredible yesterday. That setlist was just banger after banger after banger. It was perfect. Crowd was huge too. 3. Bury Tomorrow. 10/10. Blasted a hole into the ground for half an hour. Their set was far too short and they need to be playing Main Stages but they seriously get better and better every time i see them. Dan is such a captivating frontman. 4. Rolo Tomassi. 8/10. The only word can use to describe what i saw is BEAUTIFUL. Just stunning. The album is my favourite of the year and the songs sounded phenomenal. Again, just beautiful. 5. Alexisonfire. 9/10. Perfect setlist . They played everything I could have wanted them to play. The band were really up for it. I had a great time. Much better than Leeds 2015. 6. Ded. 9/10. Surprise of the weekend. I went in knowing a couple of songs and I was blown away. I couldn't take my eyes off the stage. A similar thing happened with The One Hundred last year. Very very exciting live band. 7. Jamie Lenman. 8/10. Devolver is such a great album and the songs sounded massive. He is properly talented. So much energy considering it is just him and a drummer on stage. Lovely set for a Sunday afternoon. 8. Neck Deep. 9/10. I left GNR after an hour as I wasn't feeling the jams and solos and I knew I couldn't enjoy 3 hours of them. ND had the tent RAMMED. I love that they came out to Sweet Child O' Mine with the GNR logo as their backdrop. Amazing energy from the band and the crowd and a great setlist. 9. Stray From The Path. 8/10. Blasted the tent to pieces. Such a great band who give it everything live. 10. Volbeat. 8/10. Like others have said, this was so good for them in the UK. They had a gigantic crowd who were so into it. The band sounded great and I really do think that they can headline this in future. A few others I have comments on: Avenged Sevenfold. 4/10. What a let down. What was up with that setlist? The middle 40 mins or so of the set was SO dull. It completely left the crowd all around me flat. They started off realy well and ended well but everything in between killed the set. Really disappointing. Andrew WK. 5/10. Far better in the tent the last time he played. He always has great energy but it wasn't as good outdoors. Plus he didn't play I Get Wet . Asking Alexandria. 1/10. Rubbish setlist. Boring performance. Danny stacking it at the beginning gave me a good laugh though. Cradle Of Filth. I actually quite enjoyed them and they are not my thing at all. Will there be a bigger juxtaposition in 2018 than Cradle playing in glorious summer sunshine ? Starcrawler. 0/10. F**king dreadful. The singer came off so try hard and false. It was just weird. Properly poo. I watched a band in the Dog House on Thursday called Immersion (I think) and they were brilliant. Really heavy and really energetic; they had the whole tent bouncing. Really cool to see. OH. AS IF GNR PLAYED SLITHER. That was seriously awesome. Final thing; I always pay lots of attention to merch I see people wearing and by far the most merch I saw this weekend was Architects. I saw so many people in t-shirts, vests, jackets, hats. I heard lots of people talking about them saying they wished they were playing. Download should pick up on that, I think. The future is so bright for them.

    Yeah, it’s not a secret set. It’s The Fever 333 playing mid afternoon on the Avalanche Stage. It did look like a secret set as there was a 1 hour 40 minute gap after Rolo Tomassi but in yesterday’s Kerrang! it got confirmed that it is The Fever. It’s their first show outside of the USA so that’s pretty cool. I’m really happy with it seeing how they’re only doing Reading.
