  3. Billie Eilish / Royal Blood Travis Scott / Sam Fender The Killers / Queens of the Stone Age Merry Christmas x
  4. Arctic Monkeys are by a countrymile the biggest headliner that R&L can book. End of. You could've stuck BMTH, Shikari and Limp Bizkit on the Rage day and The Sherlocks, Jake Bugg & The Hunna under AM and that second day would've still sold out quicker.

  6. Got to spend this festival in the press tent, absolutely surreal to interview bands like NBT and still get to go to lots of sets. Met the big man Melvin briefly, he just laughed it off when I asked who's headlining in 2022. Sam Fender was also just hanging about too which left me very starstruck haha. Biffy for me were set of the weekend, with Slowthai, Holly Humberstone, Sam Fender and Posty (who really surprised me given 2018 and 2019) not far off. However, the crowd for Biffy at the start was SHOCKING - front area barely half full. A combination of how late they were booked, their relevance to the 16-18 year old crowd and also the fact Gerry Cinnamon - and the whole of Scotland - was on at the same time. I think rockier acts, unless they're stadium level (e.g. foos, muse, rhcp etc) will now always take the smaller MSW slot while the more mainstream ones take the later MSE headliner. Can see Royal Blood, Foals, Sam Fender, QOTSA etc all suiting that perfectly. Sam is absolutely a future headliner, he is massive, would not be surprised at all if he's booked as early as 2022. He's only 1 album in and he's already surpassed Wombats, TDCC and probably even Catfish now. I thought Catfish were actually quite tight at Leeds but watching back their Reading performance I can see what some of yous mean.
  7. Rage Against The Machine / Sam Fender Dave / Royal Blood Gorillaz / Foals
  8. Fab yes this is very helpful, yellow gate is where I need to go. Just to confirm - your guest camping wristband does again you access to all the public campsites too if you wanted it yeah?
  9. Leeds - any others with guest tickets going Wednesday? Also, do yous know whereabouts on the map the shuttle bus drops you off??
  10. Where are Squid playing?? Can't find them on lineup
  11. I pray for Architects, I think realistically itll be Frank Carter.
  12. Quick question - has anyone ever been to Leeds as a weekend guest ticket holder before?? (/press pass) I'm doing press for one of my uni societies but have a "weekend guest camping ticket" and I notice there is a guest camping designated area on the map. I was planning to camp in the normal campsites with my mates, but if it's a different wristband this might not be possible maybe? If not, I do know one mate who's volunteering, so would his campsite also be the guest campsite (has anyone volunteered before)? It says I can access "all public areas" would the normal campsites count as a public area??
  13. I prefer not to speak. If I speak, I am in big trouble...
  14. Anyone go to Frank Carter's pop up in London today? My mate went and he got told some juicy information...
  15. Reckon they'll do the potato/fortune cookie thing this year or just cut to the chase?
  16. Stereophonics Kooks Idles I reckon
  17. Govt keep saying Easter over and over again as the timeframe for when things will be "back to normal." Allowing a bit more time - call it mid-May when a sizeable proportion of the population are vaccinated. Honestly, festivals have to happen for the industry to survive - as stated above - they will absolutely find a way. R+L are already well preparing for a mass testing approach as Melvin as said, and the vaccine only improves things. Have some ✨ optimism ✨
  18. I was a bit disappointed by the Deftones 😕 My current top 10 are: 1. BMTH - Post Human 2. DMA'S - The Glow 3. Idles - Ultra Mono 4. Vistas - Everything Changes in the End 5. Run the Jewels - RTJ4 6. Stand Atlantic - Pink Elephant 7. Nothing But Thieves - Moral Panic 8. A Hero's Death - Fontaines D.C. 9. Enter Shikari - Nothing is True and Everything is Possible 10. Open Up Your Head - Sea Girls
  19. This album is next level. Comfortable AOTY, and supposedly one of a few more EPs still to come. For anyone who thought their peak was over, this has got to be what brings them back. They have to headline at some point!
  20. I have a feeling IDLES are gonna headline Truck Festival 2021.
  21. They sold out Ally Pally after extensively touring Broken Machine, and have probably their best album yet in October (judging by the singles) - should be in with a high chance of a #1 looking at that week's releases. I'm sure they want to shift lots of tickets for this first before their UK festivals get announced, then have another spike of sales off back of the album then also summer 2020 festivals. I think they'll sub Catfish or Queens as has been said, equates to 4th down main roughly which is perfect Edit: summer 2021*
  22. Suppose the tables were turned and QOTSA were headlining DL and it was LG/Biffy at Reading 2021. How do we think this would be perceived? Weaker/stronger? I think QOTSA are a massive booking but seen a lot of people saying they're just a glorified sub, younger crowd never heard of them etc.
