    I am regular to Rock im Park, a sister fest (like Leeds to Reading). Park is at Nurnberg's city park while Ring is at race track in central Germany = more complicated logistics. Apart from location, the only major difference is curfew which is 3 am at Ring vs. ~midnight in Park. It's a brilliant festival. Happy to share more of interested/relevant

    FYI - new additions to Rock am Ring /Park: PVRIS, Antilopen Gang, Seasick Steve, Nothing More, Andrew W.K., 6ix9ine, Mantar, Don Broco, Thy Art is Murder, Scarlxrd, Giant Rooks und The Night Game I guess it makes all US bands announced unlikely for RandL

    Hi guys, crowd-sourcing question. Any interesting new names on the line-up? I go every year and most exciting for me are the new discoveries on the small stages. However, it's getting harder to find out the ones worth watching with NME debacle and lack of other sources covering new interesting/alternative music. Any recommendations this year (bar Dance stage, not my cup of tea ;-)? Thanks, appreciated!

    March/April Much better line-up. Rock im Park (sister fest) is based in Nurnberg, similar set up as Reading if you prefer city based fest. RaR is at a race track, so just a camping but with massive non-stop party ;-)

    They're OKish. Not the best live band around but much better than KOL tbh. They were pretty good when they came back from the hiatus in 2015/16 but somehow underwhelming when I saw them last year. Anyway, one of the more interesting acts announced.

    Offspring have some EU shows/festivals scheduled for June/July, making them very unlikely for R+L imho

    Lineup 2018

    RaR/RiP 2nd anouncement is out: Alexisonfire, Andy Frasco, Avatar , Babymetal, Baroness, Bausa, Beth Ditto, Chase & Status, Gurr, Heisskalt, Jonathan Davis, Kreator, Mavi Phoenix, Milliarden, Moose Blood, Muse, Pop Evil, Shinedown, Snow Patrol, Starcrawler, Taking Back Sunday, The Bloody Beetroots, The Neighbourhood, Thursday, Vitalic, Yungblud I guess Snow Patrol and Chase & Status can be relevant? Can't see US bands staying until late summer in Europe...

    Pearl Jam just announced Euro tour for early summer, including Werchter and 2x O2 arena. It was a wild prediction anyway but they got mentioned here several times. I guess this crosses them out

    I see your point but I was commenting both from comparison vs last year (when Green Day, SOAD, LP, Arcade Fire, Blink and Foos were available) and from headliners relevance on the continent perspective. To provide more context - Gorillaz are struggling to sell out 5-7k capacity places (e.g., Hamburg still available) on the current tour in Germany. 30STM were absolutely pitiful in 2013, playing to the smallest headliner crowd I have ever seen. Limp Bizkit were playing against them to a completely packed Arena stage... I can't see them being more relevant in 2017 unless their new album is a huge hit. RaR/RiP demographics is closer to Download than Reading so I guess Jared's movie achievements don't count ;-) Anyway, I think booking Gorillaz (and also 30stm to certain extent) is a great move as their pool of potential headliners will expand. They will sell out regardless, strong undercards will help too.

    Could have been the case. They announced the lineup 2 wks later than usually

    I guess RaR/RiP struggles with headliners tbh (FF played 2 yrs ago, 30stm are rather weak and gorillaz are a gamble). 30stm got pitiful reception in 2013. No one really cared, the smallest crowd I have ever seen for a headliner. Imagine 30stm headlining Download...
