  1. Honestly my initial reaction is a little bit underwhelming. Didn’t think the sound was all that and the crowd was pretty dead. Too many people filming rather than enjoying the night. Not the perfect setlist but it was pretty decent and played longer than expected which was nice. I prefer theatrical Gerard Way we used to get rather than comic book guy Gerard Way. Have seen better and seen them be better unfortunately but maybe I need to sleep on it.
  2. Also hearing no golden circle, just spoke to security near gate 5 and they said it’s a free for all and the barrier was just for Thursday.
  3. Anyone know how early you had to get in for the golden circle wristbands or if they were handing them outside of the stadium before entry?
  4. Hoping for less phones on Saturday. I don’t mind the odd photo but I don’t want to watch the gig through other peoples phones and I feel it may kill the atmosphere a tad.
  5. Panic!, Paramore, MCR and MGK. Going full on the pop punk next year.
  6. Yeah Dinosaur Pile Up and The Big Moon are both good shouts. I’d like to see Kid Kapichi, Bob Vylan and Lauran Hibberd added. Who are we thinking for the Friday headliner as Sea Girls and Everything Everything are decent sized headliners.
  7. I feel like it needs a Kendrick, Eminem, Post or Travis
  8. Updated prediction due to Kendrick’s new album and that it’s looking like MCR may have new music out as well. I do think it’ll definitely be one Kendrick or Travis Scott but I’m not 100% on which one yet. The 1975 / Machine Gun Kelly Kendrick Lamar / Paramore My Chemical Romance / Sam Fender
  9. Depends, if Metallica are doing their own dates it’ll be Download but if not then Download will be RATM, Metallica & Slipknot and MCR will do R&L. Probably depends where Paramore go as well as I can’t see R&L booking both Paramore and MCR
  10. Don’t think it’s a question of Kendrick or MCR as I think R&L could get both but if R&L get Paramore I don’t think they’ll get MCR. Looking like Travis Scott and Post Malone will also be around next year so could be 1 of 3 between Kendrick, Travis Scott and Post Malone.
  11. If anyone is going to the Stadium MK Thursday date can you let us know if there is a golden circle and if it’s a case of picking the wristbands up outside or getting in early to get in etc.? Thanks in advance!
  12. I’m thinking they’ll be more suited to R&L and it’s Downloads anniversary next year I think they’ll go big on heavy acts like Metallica, RATM and Slipknot but yeah could go either way as Metallica could decide to do their own shows and RATM, Slipknot and MCR would still be massive for Download.
  13. New MCR which is decent. Got to be R&L or Download next year.
  14. New single from MCR, got to be R&L or Download for them next year.
  15. Looks good but not quite enough to commit to it all just yet so waiting for Monday before getting a ticket. If I were to go my must sees would be Sea Girls, The Mysterines, The Reytons, Baby Queen & Spector.
  16. I’m thinking of catching Spanish Love Songs in Bristol on the Sunday which reduces part of the clash for me.
  17. I think as they were the first act of the weekend at Reading they messed it up. Such a shame as I watched them do an acoustic in store last year having never heard or seen much of them and thought the lead singers voice was amazing.
  18. 2006: Arctic Monkeys (too long and too many stoppages, didn’t know how to hold a crowd, a slot too soon for them at the point & completely overshadowed by Muse the same night)/The Streets (didn’t get it) 2007: RHCP (boring, too much jamming & didn’t play under the bridge) 2009: Arctic Monkeys (terrible, felt like they played loads of the new album, had to leave halfway through. The Prodigy were the true headliner that night) 2010: Guns N’ Roses (so late and weren’t very good when they came on, left to watch Marina & the diamonds)/The Libertines (not really a fan and overhyped, didn’t live up to it so I left to watch Enter Shikari) 2011: Madness (didn’t get it and still don’t get it, went to the bar) 2013: Twin Atlantic (main stage was too big for them, sounded terrible)/Fall Out Boy (reunion hype, got a massive crowd but didn’t live up to it. Very poor) 2014: QOTSA/ADTR/YMAS/Papa Roach (Not sure if there were sound issues this year but I was massively disappointed by all of those) 2015: The Libertines (don’t think they should’ve been headlining tbh, didn’t pull it off) 2019: Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes (seen him be much better before and didn’t rate the setlist) 2021: Nothing But Thieves (sound quality was terrible)/Two Door Cinema Club (not for me)
  19. Not ideal for me with a lot of overlapping. Also think it’s a bit annoying what they’ve done with the headliners, I’d rather they’d have just clashed Alexisonfire with Neck Deep than clashing with both but here’s my go to with a few decisions yet to be made. Cassyette/The Bronx or Meet Me @ The Altar/Hot Milk/KennyHoopla/End of Cancer Bats/Smrtdeath & Hot Mulligan or Mod Sun/Pennywise/The Interrupters/The Flatliners/Neck Deep or 3OH!3 or Spanish Love Songs/SUM 41
  20. No chance of happening imo. Got a big pool of headliners before they’d even consider Coldplay let alone book them.

    Arcade Fire

    Tour late this year means festivals next year right. Are we thinking they’ll probably do APE in the UK or elsewhere?
  22. This is true. Could always take a headline spot at Slam Dunk next year instead of doing Download or R&L and return to Trees at some point. Slam Dunk will already have a relationship with them as they were booked on the Time & Space album but Download/R&L have the cash so it depends what they prefer.
