  1. Highly doubt it festival season came back this year. We may still need winter lockdowns but I'm sure we'll all be back at large events by end of March at the latest
  2. Faith No More have dropped out as headliner. Who would be likely to replace them?
  3. New Kasabian song Alygatyr was pretty poor on first listen. Might be a grower though
  4. Thankfully I'm one of the lucky ones going to both. Never been this excited for a festival before both line ups have really knocked it out the park
  5. Flume being added to The Loop is huge. He's fantastic live and can't wait to see him
  6. I think Dave would be quite a cheap headliner option the rest though would all cost alot
  7. How much will it likely cost to spend a week in Barcelona including the festival?
  8. Not officially ruled out but the stuff coming out about the singer Josh Homme doesn't look promising and I wouldn't be surprised if they don't get booked based on the accusations
  9. Muse potentially?? they're playing in europe in July and definitely would shift some tickets
  10. That's more likely where Lorde would play
  11. I'm impressed by how many tickets Dave has shifted today. Definite headliner material. Not my cup of tea though and I doubt many of my friends like him so hopefully the other headliners are more appealing to us. Dreading to think about how dull a Dave Courteeners day could be for me ahahaha
  12. I completely agree with you that he's bang on the money for the demographic but I still just don't think he's got singalongs. Stormzy is much more commercial and he didn't even maintain a consistent atmosphere for his set alot of folk seemed disinterested unless it was one of his hits. Dave has thiago Silva and funky friday and maybe location where I reckon most attendees would know the words. Even though he is a terrific social commentator I still just don't think you'd end a night on him he just won't bring a bouncy lively atmosphere IMO. I seen him in Glasgow and the crowd seemed pretty bored until thiago silva and funky Friday were on. I get he is a bigger deal in england but I still think in terms of popularity stormzy is miles ahead of him and he would be better headlining the second main stage than closing the night.
  13. I just can't see Dave closing a night he is an incredibly talented artist but I just don't think he has those feel good hit songs you'd want to end a night on that's my take. I've seen him live and although he's very talented I just felt a bit bored by his performance
  14. Definitely nailed on for an FR secret set next year
  15. Everyone on that list apart from Dave and maybe the strokes would be really expensive could only see one of those names making it
  16. He was on at 9PM he had a support Ethan P Flynn who was on just after 8 if you're interested in seeing him
  17. Of all the sets at Leeds it arguably had the best atmosphere not a single person was standing still and I thought they played a good set.
  18. It'll never happen but imagine how spectacular a Kanye West headline set would be
  19. He was on top form tonight played a slightly longer set than leeds was on for just about 65 minutes and really had the crowd going was good to be in a crowd where the fans adore him. Mosh pits constantly and just an all round good atmosphere. If he was half as good as he was tonight you'll have a good time mate. Enjoy the gig
  20. Melvin Benn has also said one of the headliners was a previous headliner
  21. Melvin Benn has just said he's got 3 of 6 headliners already in place with an interview with NME. Guess the two main stages are here to stay
  22. I thought he was great at Leeds too. I'm seeing him tonight in Glasgow and I'm sure he'll be even better
  23. Yeah especially being scottish it was the main festival to go and when I went I'd know about 30 other pals who go so it would be a good reunion of sorts but the festival had more problems in the last few years I went the last year and there was a couple drug deaths a stabbing and funnily enough an ATM was stolen which has apparently £25,000 in it. I keep hoping for a come back but I think they've just settled for TRNSMT cause they know it'll sell but it's not the same and the atmosphere isn't close to what T in the Park had. Camping festivals are just another level to Day festivals IMO
  24. Especially with T in the Park gone now and TRNSMT kinda just being a standard city festival reading and leeds really have potential to sell out consistently now. I hope they're ambitious and look to book better acts and keep the momentum going
  25. I agree I think they need to stay away from some acts which have been mainstay repeats but it wouldn't surprise me if they rebooked Muse or Eminem again. I think the issue is alot of recent bands just don't seem to be like spectacular headline material like Kendrick, TOP and Post was great a couple of years ago and so was the 1975 but I can't see Royal Blood going down amazingly even though I'm a fan of them. If there is gonna be new headliners I expect them to be pop or rappers but Courteeners wouldnt surprise me although I feel they should have got the push years ago rather than now. I really don't think they're that relevant apart from Not Nineteen Forever
