  1. Liam Gallagher / Tyler, The Creator / Bloc Party / Slowthai R1: Run The Jewels Stormzy / Billie Eilish / Wolf Alice / Brockhampton R1: Bombay Bicycle Club Slipknot / Bring Me The Horizon / Idles / Don Broco R1: Flume
  2. System of a Down / Korn Zippo: Sabaton Iron Maiden / Disturbed Zippo: Don Broco Muse / Deftones Zippo: Volbeat
  3. Download just said early bird prices finish Sun 22nd so defo thinking we're getting an announcement on 23rd.
  4. Rammstein, Green Day and System would've been such a solid trio if it could've worked out.
  5. Bombay Bicycle Club headlining R1 against the inevitable rap/hip-hop headliner would be sick
  6. Reading wouldn't have them back to headline the year after they subbed, perhaps 2021 or later. I do think they'd go down incredibly as a sub at Download, their songs have got some phenomenal riffs. Yes they may have more of a crossover with an indie/rock fanbase than DL's, but they'd fit superbly well under one of the more established, classic headliners. They sold out Manchester Arena and 3 nights at Ally Pally back in 2017 and will only get bigger with the new album, would be a very strong sub to have. Have seen talk on here previously of QOTSA headlining DL one year, if that's feasible then Royal Blood as a sub definitely is too.
  7. So many of these acts I could also see doing APE next year e.g. Tame Impala, LG, Kasabian, Courteeners, Foals
  8. Think next time they play they will co-headline, as weak as it may be. Can see them doing APE, TRSNMT, Boardies in 2020, arena tour in winter then finish the album cycle co-headlining R+L 2021.
  9. This would be a fucking dream
  10. If Slipknot headline, I could see BMTH subbing/co-headlining on a different day, to shift more weekend tickets (kinda like Foos and Royal Blood this year, who would've fit nicely together on the same day)
  11. Strokes and Slipknot headlining a 2-day festival in Peru with Interpol and BFMV the next 2 names on the lineup. Not that this is remotely relevant but yeah who knows what could happen I really do think Slipknot could be in their actual options for next year...
  12. Would be very solid but is this trio not way too similar to Glasto 2019? I reckon QOTSA could headline the Sunday instead of the Killers and then Stormzy and BMTH/Billie as the final 2
  13. What an amazing festival, absolutely shattered from the amount of time I spent at music but was incredible value for money. Mini Mansions: Quality set, Mikey's style is great and got really into it in the heavier songs. The Night Cafe: They looked bored, I got bored halfway through and left but crowd were loving it. You Me At Six: Josh's iffy vocals are cancelled out by his stage presence, loved every second of that set. Great setlist too The Wombats: Solid festival band, can play that setlist over and over again and I wouldn't mind it. Royal Blood: Holy shit. Blew it out of the park. APE next year or something surely The 1975: Production was out of this world, what a bold move opening with People. Boston Manor: One of the highlights of my weekend, great energy and drew a pretty massive crowd. One of the few bands in pop-punk with a cutting edge. Slowthai: Crowd was absolutely nuts, he'll be absolutely massive soon. Dinosaur Pile-Up: Great last minute booking, vocalist has improved a lot. Drew a surprisingly big crowd too. Billie Eilish: All my (basic) mates are obsessed with her and I was very intrigued and excited, but the performance felt dry other than the first and last songs. Sound wasn't great either. SWMRS: As always, they absolutely smashed it. Guitars sounded awesome and setlist choice was nice and refreshed from Community Fest. Stand Atlantic: Solid band, great sized crowd and really enjoyed the set. Bullet For My Valentine: One of the best sets of the weekend, sound was phenomenal. Drew such a big crowd and their mashup of Tears Don't Fall with All My Life was superb. Frank Carter: Incredible energy as always, loved his stage setup. Defo grabbing a ticket for Ally Pally ADTR: Bit disappointed, crowd wasn't the best and Jeremy's vocals always seemed half a second behind the band. Not a fan of the new direction they're going and I no longer feel they can headline DL next year. Setlist was nice though. Foo Fighters: By far the set of the weekend, was 2 rows back and every song was incredible. Compared to their gig at the Olympic Stadium, songs actually felt less dragged out than usual and a pretty perfect length. Rick Astley moment was class as usual, my band steal that mashup and do it at our shows! What a way to close the festival.
  14. Who's the 2.45 secret set on introducing?
  15. For anyone w early bird at reading right now, have campsites opened yet?
