    It was stated some time ago that Beyonce and Solange were staying in the same London hotel between 12 and 16 July and then flying into gigs in Paris (Bey) and Suffolk and Dublin (Solange). Can't remember what the whole article said but basically implied a visit to Suffolk from the sisters as there's no other cross-over in their summer tour schedule and they have a history of supporting each other when and where possible. Coachella showed this.

    It's nailed on that Beyoncé will be there. I thought that was already common knowledge?

    When he played a couple of years ago he mentioned he used to attend Latitude with his family, so it definitely holds a place in his heart. Would be a bit indifferent if he's announced tbh. He's quite good live but very static.

    Quite a decent guess, if I do say so myself. Now, fingers crossed it's a good 'un.

    Was looking at this last night. In 2017 the initial music announcement was 1 March, with comedy around 27 March and more music at end of April. With this in mind, I reckon we might get something shortly if they release something every month like last year. I'll guess end of next week prior to Easter.

    Sheeran's in Sweden on the Friday and Saturday and in Germany on the Monday so the only day he'll appear is the Sunday, if at all.

    I can't tell you, it's a secret.

    A friend of mine travels the globe for work and often goes to gigs in the cities he's working in, seeing around 50 acts or more every year. He saw Solange last year, knew absolutely nothing about her, and reckons she was the best act he saw in 2017, over and above much bigger names (and he's a rock and indie fan). He has implored me to watch her. If she's up against James then there's no chance but, if not, I'll give her a go.

    I'm biased as James are probably my favourite band of the past 30 years but, yes, they are strong enough. Their last album got to number 2 in the charts - which is 15 places higher than Solange has ever reached! They sell out every gig they play in the 3,000 capacity area and always sell out Manchester Arena when they play (18,000 capacity). They played numerous headline gigs in forests etc in 2016/17 and, perhaps most importantly, they are awesome live - seen them 8 times!

    Is this a definite? Daughter can't come until early Friday evening because of school and she'll be cheesed off to miss Gang of Youths.

    They're playing Bolton Wanderers' football ground on the Friday night so they're in the country on the Saturday. Think that's how.

    The joy of Killers and Beck would immediately be removed by the pain of Paloma Faith. She's a vaudeville act.

    If the returning headliner rumour is true, there's a longer list of those I wouldn't like to see returning than those I would tbh.

    Assumed you would know. Have you not had a media release from FR yet?

    And the others, size wise. Do we have a stadium act in there or are they all theatre/arena sized?
