The only decent thing about autumn/winter (apart from comfort food) is over analysing who is gonna play where, so here are my thoughts. Not been to Reading for a couple of years cos the line-ups have been pretty weak for me, or I've seen it all before. Still hopeful for at least 1 day next year...
Foals - could happen as a headliner. Smashed the bejesus out of Ally Pally and I also think the smaller upcoming gigs are deliberate.
Catfish could sub-head on one day or co-head. Seen them a few times and 3 times out of 4 they smashed it. Popular with the tweenagers (and me, even though I am no longer a tweenager, but I think and act like one!)
The Strokes - yeah, I would love to see them, but it would have to be a good all-round day to tempt me there. Apparently did a good set at All Points East and went down well with all ages.
Blur? Hmmm. They'd be better off doing Castle Park in Colchester to cut their fine teeth again.
BMTH - massive disappointment for me as I love a lot of their songs, saw them a couple of years ago at Sziget and they didn't play 2 of their most pivotal songs and they are a just a bit too much 30STM live...
I predict Foals for Friday, Stormzy for Saturday and I could see the curveball being Coldplay for Sunday as they are releasing new material very soon.
