  1. Yeah the lead singer made a point of this on stage at Reading saying how they’ve been told they have to finish early because “the Festival think you’ll all go and watch Post Malone instead”, which got a large boo from the crowd lmao.
  2. Very good album. Would welcome him mid-main/high R1 for sure.
  3. Yeah Mura Masa was empty at Reading. Me and a couple mates were sat at the back and went Mura Masa just cuz no better option and he heard he had a good stage show. Crowd only came out to the mud barrier and that was it.
  4. Including fan favourite American rock headliners such as Muse.
  5. Dua Lipa isn’t my thing at all but I happened to be sat down towards the back when she was on and she was okay. Huge crowd. This year Anderson .Paak for example was one of my most anticipated acts and I was right in the crowd for. He was very very good, yet had a poor crowd. I know which one they’d take the chance on booking again in a high slot and it ain’t Andy.

  7. His posse attacked and killed some lad after one of his shows recently. Stabbed with a massive blade. There's videos showing the whole thing and everyone's blaming MoStack for their actions. He's not helped himself either seeming to ask everyone to delete the video to protect his friends and his image. Not gone down well at all. Yeah I can see that to be honest. Would just hope for a more interesting booking in such a prominent slot, can definitely see Courteeners happening though.
  8. Deffo realistic. Not sure if MoStack's going to be booked for many more things after recent events though. Besides that it looks alright. I'd be satisfied enough with that but for the love of god, any co-head option other than Courteeners please haha.
  9. I don’t know about you but I don’t think Tyler, The Creator would play Download. Personally I don’t think any of those lineups @Andre91 suggested scream download any more than Foo Fighters/A Day To Remember/Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes/The Distillers/Enter Shikari did this year. I reckon a day like that with a combo of Stormzy/The Killers/Foals/The Strokes etc. Headlining the rest of the weekend would be perfectly acceptable.
  10. Is it widely seen as their best though? I think if you ask most people they’d say their best is Antidotes or Total Life Forever, personally I’d say What Went Down. I haven’t seen many shouts for the one being their best yet though, although it is incredibly good (I am a huge foals fanboy tho so I love everything they’ve put out). I think the upcoming album will give them that little push to be known as a comfortable headline act at most festivals and give them even more of a popularity boost, although I’m not sure if a Glastonbury headline is on the cards.
  11. Weezer headlining but playing the Black album, Teal album and Pacific Daydream in full and nothing else.
  12. As someone who thinks Kasabian are quite average, this new S.L.P. album has really impressed me. Would not be mad at all having them as a "guest opener" if we did get Kasabian headlining. Between this and Murph from Wombats' new project this is FAR superior.
  13. Quality band. They were great at Reading last year from the few songs I saw. Saw them on their own tour and at APE earlier this year too, very consistent. They did however say at both that they're taking a break for a while as they've been non-stop touring since Broken Machine, aswell as the recent EP too. I'd probably expect them to give next summer a miss for festivals thinking about it.
  14. Gutted I missed Press Club, ended up walking back to White after The Night Cafe to chill out for a bit and not coming back till The Wombats. Glad they were great though, would love to see them rebooked they're quality.
  15. Templates aren't working mate.
  16. That's completely understandable, I love the first album and welcome a lot more of it in the setlists. I saw them on the tour after they released it and they played it in full + Indigo Puff and it was amazing, it all sounded great live. I do quite like the second album too though and think it's a tad unfair some of the stick it gets just because they've been playing more of it recently.
  17. I don't get the dislike for Sundara's new album. It's a fun indie record with songs that mostly sound just as good live as the first album. Greenhands, Higher States, Little Smart Houses, One Last Night On This Earth, Symbols Of Joy & Eternity and Home are all class tunes. I can't see them returning next year but give it a couple years they'll be 4th down main or subbing R1 at the least I'd have thought.
  18. Royal Blood were a better sub this year than Bastille were when they subbed in 2017. I saw both sets and loved both bands huge amounts at the time of seeing them. In terms of performance and crowd size Royal Blood>Bastille.
  19. Bullet are nowhere near big enough surely? I’m fairly sure they played about 5th down last time they played and they were more relevant then than they are now.
  20. Right super early prediction that will be nowhere near right: Stormzy//Tyler, The Creator//Architects//All Time Low//Halsey//Loyle Carner//Tonight Alive Jamie T//Metronomy//Octavian//Rich Brian//Yonaka The Strokes/Foals//Skepta//Brockhampton//Bullet For My Valentine//The Amazons//Blaenavon J Hus//Idles//Declan McKenna//Marmozets//JPEGMAFIA The Killers//The XX//Bombay Bicycle Club//Nothing But Thieves//The Neighbourhood//While She Sleeps//MoStack Jamie XX (Closing Set)//Courteeners//Neck Deep//21 Savage//Dominic Fike//Rejjie Snow
  21. I know it's not exactly likely but I'd absolutely love to see The XX subbing and Jamie XX doing a closing set on the R1 or something. Sticking it in my prediction because I'm allowed to have some wishful thinking.
  22. Food I had was decent. Paid £12 for a good size pizza, fries and a drink. £6 for a proper meaty quarter pounder, £8 for 3 big pieces of chicken and chips. Was quite impressed actually this year
  23. Had a brilliant festival. Probably the best Reading weekend yet. Personal faves: Bloxx were brilliant again, pulled quite a big crowd considering they were opening the R1. Royal Blood were insane. I was down in the front circle and the crowd was brilliant. The 1975 was easily one of my highlights of the weekend. I’m not a huge fan in general but the whole show and performance was perfect. Slowthai was as good as ever, always puts on an insane show and didn’t disappoint. Anderson .Paak was great even though I went off on my own to watch him as none of my group were bothered. Good fun live. Shame he had such a small crowd. Peace were amazing but that was probably more down to the crowd as the pits were basically one big midlands meet up haha. Saw many people I knew. The Amazons packing out the R1 was really great to see I’m glad they had a huge crowd they really deserved it. On top form Frank Carter is Frank carter, don’t have to see anything more he killed it. Enter Shikari are easily one of my fave bands of all time and they did not disappoint at all during their pit set. What a setlist. Sadly had to miss the main stage set due to almost passing out at my camp in white due to the heat. All in all definitely the best Reading I’ve been to even if the lineup wasn’t the best. A great birthday weekend too roll on next year x
  24. Rob from Don Broco tweeted saying they were the secret set on the dance tent under the name The LaFontaines. Gonna be a lot of angry Broco fans when they realise it’s not them hahaha.
  25. Masicka has pulled out of 1Xtra stage. Replaced by M Huncho.
