  1. Kanye West is announcing a full tour and is expected to play Australia as soon as March. Given that timeframe, I'd imagine his tour is dropping EXTREMELY soon.
  2. That last thing actually went through my head there :lol: Further south you go, lesser they get. I don't think they'd fit. I think if they did, they'd probably have headlined it by now.
  3. Aye, it's not like Royal Blood were well established headliners. You won't find many festivals who won't put new headliners out there if they're the right type, and Sam Fender and Foals are definitely the right type for Victorious.
  4. George Ezra is a MASSIVE ticket shifter. The only reason he doesn't headline bigger is because he comes with a bit of a pop stink these days which a lot of festivals don't like to touch. He wouldn't co-headline ANY festival. He'd outright headline any festival that'd book him, outside of Glastonbury, which is obviously a different beast.
  5. Yeah, George Ezra as a co-headliner is pretty hilarious.
  6. I can see why The Wombats being there constantly would piss people off. I quite like em tbh, and thought they were great in front of a "who gives a fuck crowd" at Glasgow Green before Kings of Leon. Bloc Party were OUTSTANDING headlining Festival No. 6 in 2017 though, and I think their post-Silent Alarm output has been excellent.
  7. Why is there even a remote doubt that Sam Fender could headline this? He's not far off of being big enough for the majors.
  8. By the looks of it, they'll be off the lineup.
  9. I reckon it'll be a camping festival. Geoff Ellis definitely said not long ago there was room for another one.
  10. Fair enough. I just thought someone that's so blatantly "pop" would kinda get scoffed at. I couldn't see McFly and Busted getting booked properly either which is why I compared these. I'm still not entirely sure I'm wrong, but certain folk on here are fairly clued up on these things more than I so I'm willing to bow to this.
  11. Surely, given they actually said they were doing a surprise set, Mumford weren't going to sub. When has a surprise act ever done a slot that big at any festival? I mean... I guess Glastonbury is a bit different. Hence how a band like Aerosmith can get talked about being low on the bill behind acts they're far far bigger than.
  12. What bands don't have a day? The poster I seen didn't have anyone without a day or stage.
  13. Why didn't they list the UK date on a thing about the US tour? Damn. What a mystery.
  14. The reason I had her down as being the same as the last couple of secret sets is because she's someone folk would enjoy watching, but also someone who folk would scoff at if they were actually booked. I can't see Slam Dunk ever openly booking her.
  15. My first thought was "this is just some money mark and it'll end up cancelled" before seeing it was a Live Nation thing. Fucking hell.
  16. Avril would kinda fit the secret sets of recent times. I'd take that. Think Neck Deep are pretty shite tbh, but there's going to be decent choice so not an issue in the slightest.
  17. Except I actually predicted that exact slot on this thread for Shikari. We're talking completely different bands here. A Day to Remember aren't even close to Architects either.
  18. Architects playing such a high slot at Reading and Leeds is quite a funny concept tbh. Not saying they're not big enough of course. It just ain't happening.
  19. Didn't do much, but Enter Shikari at the QMU in Glasgow would be around the top no matter how many I went to I imagine. Funeral for a Friend at Slam Dunk was just glorious as well. I only did Ash and Fozzy outside of that. Ash were really good and Fozzy were fine.
  20. I only just found out that The Music's gig at Temple Newsam is the night before, so that has now made the decision 100% for me. That's a hell of a double header and I want every bit of it.
  21. Disclosure are comfortably the smallest act headlining. More suited to the audience? Probably, but there's absolutely no actual way they're bigger than the other two. Also depends on where Boardmasters are aiming. This could be a wild backfire depending on wherelse these acts are playing. And with KoL, you have a full arena tour as well as this which isn't a good sign off the bat.
  22. Two pretty big headliners there tbh, and one... not so big.
  23. Certainly not from me. I reckon it's comfortably the worst album they've made. Such dull shite most of the way. And it's not the easier sound of it either. The follow up is excellent IMO and didn't need to be overly rocky to be any good either.
  24. I'm not seeing Dave being in the reach of Boardmasters either.
  25. Springsteen over-ran so I'm pretty sure he'll have no issue with being cut for that reason. As for Mad Cool, looks fairly definite at this point, and the Boss himself said they'll be touring in 2022 although didn't get into any specifics on the where and when.
