  1. I thought Capaldi was brilliant, but it’ll be good to see him again in a few years with more albums under his belt. The crowd didn’t seem empty in the slightest either.
  2. Headliner predictions: Friday: George Ezra Saturday: Lionel Richie / The Chemical Brothers Sunday: Florence + The Machine
  3. NBT are way too low there, they play arenas now.
  4. Two Door Cinema Club are teasing new music, so I guess they could be back next year. It might be too soon, but that didn’t stop The Wombats.
  5. The two remaining members have stayed quiet, so it wouldn’t surprise me if they return with two other new guys.
  6. Yep, I’m one of those people! Still love YB though.
  7. Panic! At the Disco have just released a new single, announced an album for August and a UK tour for Spring next year. Sounds really good on first listen, hopefully they’re headlining next year.
  8. His most recent album sold 40k in the first week, most artists would kill for that. Not a chance the label will drop him. There’s no point looking at singles chart positions for indie/rock acts. Catfish and the Bottlemen only ever had one Top 40 single. The main reason for that being is that they just don’t get pushed on the big Spotify/Apple Music playlists, being added to Hot Hits UK on Spotify can make pretty much anything chart.
  9. Panic! at the Disco are definitely releasing new music soon, so they seem like a decent bet for next year. https://www.shutupandgotobed.com/
  10. Streams from free Spotify accounts do count towards the chart, but streams from paid accounts count for more.
  11. Like most rock acts, he's more of an albums artist than a singles one - his last album sold 40k in the first week, which is far more than most R&L headliners do. He hasn't had any 'hit' singles because his stuff doesn't get supported and put on Spotify playlists. To get a Top 40 these days without an absolutely huge fanbase, you pretty much need it to be added to Spotify's Hot Hits UK playlist.
  12. It took Lizzo’s new single two weeks before it entered the Spotify UK Top 200, due to playlisting/promotion. I don’t think there’s as much interest here for her as an artist anymore.
  13. Get Carter the Unstoppable Sex Machine!
  14. On their most recent tour in 2018, they played at the O2, Motorpoint Arena, Manchester Arena, SSE Arena & Birmingham Arena. Not sure how they sold though. 5.6m monthly listeners on Spotify which seems about right, and they haven’t released anything new in 4 years now.
  15. For what it’s worth, their bigger song in the UK last year was ‘I Wanna Be Your Slave’ - which certainly is a rock banger!
  16. “Eurovision Italian rock” fans aren’t their main audience anymore, they had two absolutely massive hits in the UK last year thanks to TikTok trends.
  17. I quite like it but Megan Thee Stallion’s new single with *Dua Lipa* is performing really poorly on the UK charts. It debuted at #31 last week and now it’s set to completely drop out of the Top 40 tomorrow.
  18. Ed Sheeran third down at Festival Republic!
  19. Maneskin’s upcoming Brixton Academy show has been upgraded to the O2 Arena, massive!
  20. They had Ed Sheeran open in 2018 too! Though that was because he had a show in the evening IIRC.
  21. Inhaler have a different crowd I’d say, much younger than the likes of The Reytons. I wouldn’t really say they’re a ‘dark fruits’ sounding band either, they use a lot of 80s sounds/synths. A bit like U2 really, and Inhaler’s lead singer is Bono’s son.
  22. Tbh, whatever happens I wouldn’t expect much from their early albums. Matt Helders said a while ago that it feels like “karaoke” to perform them now.
  23. Just noticed that PinkPantheress is spelt incorrectly on the poster.
  24. They're currently suing the person who accused them - https://www.nme.com/news/music/all-time-low-file-lawsuit-to-prove-sexual-misconduct-allegations-are-false-3153929 And they're already doing a lot of big US festivals this Summer, so I wasn't too surprised to see them here.
  25. I might be wrong, but as far as I can see, Wargasm’s music so far has all been self-released.
