  1. Speculation is linearly correct, but I have to say that having Dua Lipa and LG headlining gives me that bitter taste of Kasabian - Major Lazer promoted to headliners in 2017 while sub-headlining 2015's edition. And we all remember how 2017 turnt out to be. In case this turns to be a weak edition, this would break the unspoken rule that says that Sziget receives better lineups in even years.
  2. I'd consider Caribou, Mac Demarco, Thundercat, Agnes Obel, Parquet Courts, Ty Segall, Black Midi and Shame as main names in the A38
  3. Not really sure about this, instead I believe that among the three, The Strokes are the more expensive.
  4. LMAO After 2018 debacle I still have PTSD thinking about that night. I'm up to say I'd love to see them anywhere but at MC. Sad but true. That or putting them on the last slot of the main stage one night, but I don't think it would work out decently anyway It depends on how many stages they have this year: if 7 like 2018, there will be many more names, if 6 like 2019 I think we are missing no more than 5-8 relevant names - included the headliners. Fact is that if they are using 6 stages, the situation turns odd, as they would put some not-so-irrilevant band in the last stages with 40 minutes slots, which would be kind of unusual.
  5. That's because you are a good guy! Still looking forward to see you irl bro, have fun over there!
  6. I'd kill to have Run The Jewels and Girl in Red
  7. No way they gonna make such big announcement without teasing, especially with Eminem with no european dates. The bigger headliners are always teased (Robbie Williams, Rihanna, Arctic Monkeys, Ed Sheeran... even bloody Kasabian in 2017). Don't keep your hopes high, toady nothing will happen.
  8. If they actually wasted both The Strokes and My Chemical Romance cards, I guess they could go for them as a solo headliner (like PJ in 18). I mean, why not? I guess it depends on them deciding to have a heritage act or something more mainstream. So far we can't really say, as the day is between Faith No More and Billie Eilish, so you can lean towards both the options without breaking the "storytelling" of the day - not that Mad Cool really cares about this element What about the closing electro-spot on the main stages (i.e Chemical Bros; Major Lazer; Bloody Beetroots...)?
  9. None? I could create a fake account and push names at random and you all would be questioning if that is some Dan Panaitescu's ghost or what releasing confidential info about the fest. We all have an idea about what the pool from which they get the smaller names will be, take an handful of these and put with some big names, more or less hyped in Sziget's circuit, and you will get a prediction... I mean, Tom Walker, Foals, Khalid and OMaM are already highy favored to be in the lineup; to these you add the name that has been hyped the most in the last 4-5 years and two random names and there you have a new Sziget-version of the Oracle of Omaha... Am I the only one that starts to notice that this collective hysteria due to them not releasing the lineup is possibly leading to a troll bait?
  10. I am thankful I live in Europe for in NA they really have some cheap-ass, over-priced, poor-experienced festivals
  11. I think that Bologna will be less expensive (the ticket surely is 40 € against 80 £, it has an international airport as well and the city and accomodations are cheaper), and the band will be less exhausted from 2 days in a row performing. Plus, the venue should be bigger. You lose in terms of organization tho, since italian shows are usually messier than England's. But here, another chance.
  12. I'm starting to reckon that we simply do not have any insider this year. The guy leaking 5 heads out of 7 said a big announcement in terms of quantity would happen tomorrow and no info has been released about this yet, and it makes it suspicious. This guy just comes and tag some lyrics piece randomly. Anybody can leak with a new account, so I'll just stay quiet and dont care about it much, names are on their way because it's almost february, but I am actually tired of hearing from random intel gurus
  13. Eminem, Shawn Mendes, Foals, Khalid, Tom Walker, The Neighbourhood and Of Monsters and Men? Not aware of touring schedule of most of them, but that sounds reasonable - and partially welcome.
  14. That or the fact that eastern promoters are forced by the low palatability of their festivals and the territorial distances to propose higher and higher cachets. Plus the fact that they require an headliner status that nobody that really matters in the circuit is up to give it to them, may those be Coachella, Mad Cool or Rock Werchter, makes the demand of the band non-sense and the whole reason of the reunion highly suspicious. I mean, I'm okay that almost any reunion is a cash cow event, but at least don't make it so obvious.
  15. I'm tilted. They went from "We want to headline Coachella" to "Okay, it's fine to headline Volt and sell our greedy asses to eastern festivals instead of the main circuit for a bag of cash", and then release press interview where they say that it is not about the money Might give up on Bologna as well, as the whole thing looks like a cashgrabbing parade right now, and not the kind I'm too keen to take part to.
  16. Except DJs, I'm pretty sure there are zero overlapping: same (small) country, same company, different periods
  17. Modena City Ramblers? Actually any time you want, they live there last I looked
  18. The most hyped return of the year is Ken - Efestivals, to hell with MCR, RATM or The Strokes
  19. Let's take a walk on memory lane 2014: 7 on 7 - went only through half of Calvin Harris, as it was too painful. Bonus points: lost both QOTSA and Placebo for bad time management; 2015: 3 on 7 - Robbie Williams, Florence and Alt J 2016: 5 on 7 2018: 5 on 7, but left Lana half in the performance because I found her dull 2019: 1 on 1 (eheh) - but I guess I'd have done 5 on 7 (Ed Sheeran and Florence, plus Martin Garrix and Posty for the lulz). Funny fact: I had the tickets for the Florence day, but I lost the flight in the morning from Warsaw where I was and had to take a detour to Paris in order to get to the island without having to sell a kidney and eventually I arrived at midnight or so, so I lost the whole day until David August
  20. IMHO super weak, with only The Strokes having a wow factor, but I dont think that real announcement will be less flat than this, so I guess it is a good prediction
  21. You see what i mean when I say that this forum has some bias problems when it comes to prediction and so?
  22. I'd add Rudimental, to some extents, DJ EZ and also Eli & Fur - saw them in Washington in 2017 and they were surprisingly good - never thought I'd hear about them ever again tho
  23. I cant really understand why Sziget, with its audience, should go after Stevie Nicks: she is a great singer but it is literally the furthest thing from what this demographic asks. I barely care about Fletwood Mac and I'm 25 with a solid background of 80s rock, left alone a zoomer who only cares for trap and Billie Eilish.
  24. I think that Eminem, with the due differences, is like Bob Dylan is: you don't go to his show for the live performance, nor the atmosphere, it is just something that you owe to the "you of the past"
