    Would Stereophonics fit the last headliner spot for this?

    Doubt it. Already have Garrix

    Would honestly be shocked though if the Saturday headline was a male band e.g. Tame Impala/The National/RCHP/Coldplay. Only way I could see this happening is if there is a female co-headline with Garrix, e.g. Ellie G coheadlining with Garrix. Otherwise, I think the Saturday headliner will be a female artist, similarly as Lana Del Ray was the last headliner to be announced last year. Ariana seems feasible to me and it would only make sense that they booked the majority of the headliners at the same time, as they would have a wider selection of bands with more open schedules and also costs being cheaper to book the artists in advance. Yes, Ariana will be a lot more expensive to book over the last few months with the release of her new album, however if they booked her around the same time as Ed Sheeran was announced, she would have been a lot cheaper and is certainly a feasible booking. There is a reason Sziget has changed and is now booking Post Malone, Ed Sheeran, 1975 etc and it's because they know that's what is going to sell the tickets at the end of the day and if they can shift more tickets than they ever have before, then in their eyes its the "best" line up so far, regardless of whether one individual likes it or not. Post had a huge crowd at Reading last year and has now been bumped up to a co-headliner there as well, so Sziget booking him does not seem like the worst decision business wise, although he is not to my personal tastes(although would much rather have him over A$AP or Cardi B). I honestly have no clue who we will get next however the 2nd female headline seems needed to me, despite Sziget saying they will not aim for a 50-50 gender balance like Primavera, they are aiming to promote diversity and therefore they will want their line up to look reasonably balanced between different genders on the whole. So far we have 53 artists announced in total, and so far only 11 of these have female performers in them(if I have counted correctly). A couple more female artists lower down on the bill as well as a 2nd female headliner is the direction I think they will be heading in from the line up announced so far. Could definitely see Marina make a comeback lower down on the bill. If it is another female headliner, and not Ellie/Ariana, I'm not sure who would be feasible. They have had Pink/Rhianna/Sia before however these don't seem like such relevant bookings anymore. Ellie is about to release a new album and Ariana has just released a new album, so these two seem the strongest headline options in my opinion.

    Is there any chance of stereophonics on the undercard? Really desperate to see them.

    Coldplay or Ariana. Marina, George Ezra, Foals, Bloc Party, Jorja Smith, Billie Ellish. That's what I'm expecting and would be happy with.

    My very ambitious bet: Coldplay to co-headline with Martin Garrix. Then Tove Lo to feature as a special guest in coldplay’s Set and they will perform their song “fun” together. Ariana Grande to headline Saturday night. Realistically not gonna happen, but it’s what I would like to see. Realistically will probably get Ellie goulding as Saturday night headline.

    Does the A38 stage definitely have acts performing on the first day this year, as am aware this stage hasn't been open until the 2nd day in previous years?

    I would argue that it's pretty well rounded. Got Ed Sheeran for pop, Post for rap, Florence, 1975 & Foo for indie, 21 pilots for Hip/hop, Garrix for EDM. A wide range of foreign bands as well as UK/US artists. Only thing it's missing is "rock" but in my eyes Sziget seem to be steering away from rock artists as presumably they don't sell as many tickets as the big "pop" names do. For example, Ed Sheeran's day has already sold out, so its evident artists like this are big ticket sellers, so they are going to keep going down this trend as far as I can see as it's what people will willingly pay to see. Honestly don't know who the strokes are but would be happy with RCHP/Killers/Coldplay and also think they would sell well for the festival

    Catfish will be main stage not a38?

    I'm thinking Foals to sub Martin Garrix, Ariana Grande to headline the Saturday and George Ezra to sub Ed Sheeran. That's my prediction for the next announcement, unless they go all out and book us Coldplay for the Saturday night. Pretty happy with how it's shaping up as a whole, really looking forward to it!

    Maybe someone like Foals could sub Garrix?? Thinking we still need the second female headliner, so gonna keep my bets on Ariana for the Saturday night.

    Just seems likely because Kygo and Shawn co-headlined last year, and last year they had a total of 8 headliners, and we only have 6 so far(as TOP are subs)...

    Still thinking Ariana for the next announcement. We still have the co-headliner with Martin Garrix to announce as well. Coldplay would be insane. Pretty pleased with this announcement, annoying it's the same headliners as Reading but happy with Iamddb/Valeras/Sigala/Franz Ferdinand & Years and Years

    Cardi B would be a terrible decision.

    Killers would be cool, worth remembering they had another increase in budget for bookings this year. I know that budget was pretty much spent on Ed however that means we are able to have a line up as big as last years + Ed to top off the line up, so will interesting to see if they book anyone else really "big" as we are kind of missing that at the moment, although it is an excellent line up.
