  1. I really don’t think Dave has the pulling power to be a co-head he is big in the UK but outside he hasn’t really made a name for himself
  2. There soo good! Funeral : Rebellion (lies) Neon Bible: Keep the car running The Suburbs (such a great album) : We used to wait Reflektor : Reflektor Everything Now : Creature Comfort or Signs of life Just a brilliant band.
  3. Got to admit just looked at Dave and AJ Traceys listeners on Spotify they are huge both are 6 million monthly listeners which is outstanding. Would expect them to sub next time they play. I really do feel though that Kendrick in 2018 was possibly the greatest headline set and a huge pull for Reading. Kanye’s new song sounds a little like ‘life of Pablo’ so hoping he’s going back to his roots which is good cause he’s stepping away from his church stuff. Meaning he’ll be back!! Just hope Reading have that kind of pulling power to get Kanye along (it would be insane) and tickets would sell quick. Kendricks set was incredible in 2018
  4. Give it to me right now! Tbh I really don't care if we get shit headliners this would be fucking insane and the festival would sell out!
  5. I can't deny I think The Strokes will take a co-headline slot if you look at the Primavera sound poster they have huge acts like Gorillaz, Tyler the creator, The National, Beck, Tame Impala and The Strokes all potential headliners of any festivals tbh The National and BECK will never be back at Reading but anyhow this proves The Strokes might consider the possibility of Co-headlining. Plus this puts the Gorillaz in the frame too. Plus even though we slag off Arcade Fire they have got some brilliant records and they'll be cheap plus they'll have a big enough pulling capacity too co-headline. I know it's early June but good to see there around. Food for thought?
  6. Arcade Fire releasing new album soon! Thoughts on them headlining again? Or they past there days I think if there new album has the same reception as Everything now they could be in with a shot!
  7. Yeah DMA's are huge now I feel like they'd make it to third down/forth down main stage like they were at sub status on Truck this year.
  8. It's a very sad situation for this festival I remember going in 2016 when Jamiroqui headlined. Personally I think Boardmasters will go back to there old ways with headliners. There was a big significance with this year as it was 40th anniversary and they obviously had the problems with the year previous. So in the current state I think it's very unlikely for it to go down the pan as it's just a brilliant festival and very well-known. 2021 I would go for. Dave Red Hot Chilli Peppers The 1975
  9. Regarding Next Year I really think Arcade Fire will be likely to be on one of the days Win Butler has had a few album teases so expecting a new album by 2021 so that would be a good booking. Plus they would suit the BST image and there material is brilliant. Currently gone back to loving The Suburbs what an album so would be brilliant to see them!
  10. Absolute belter! tbh I'm quite pleased that Foals didn't play Wilderness this summer because that still keeps them in line to be a headliner at Reading, I do feel like they were quite unlucky with there festival bookings this summer especially missing out on Glastonbury and Reading but there now extremely relevant as there a Brit award winning band which turned some heads I'm sure and the last time they headlined a festival in the UK would've been truck in 2019 and there Glastonbury set was broadcasted everywhere. So I think there really likely to co-head next year or even headline outright on the Friday they've got an excellent setlist.
  11. Would love to see Blur I think I say that about 7 times a year on this forum but would love to see it!
  12. Tbh any of those apart from Dave, Stormzy and Disclosure and I'm happy No arcade fire or Vampire Weekend though sad times
  13. Looking forward to next years line up Biffy Clyro / Foals , Skepta Arctic Monkeys , Tyler The Creator Rage Against The Machine , Bring me the horizon Going to be ace if you look at Spotify TBHC did better then Suck it and see? Personally love hits like TBHC, Star Treatment and 4 out of five, I think they'll be great to see live mixing in and out of old stuff and new stuff, different sounds. Then to save some costs with The Vaccines slotting anywhere on the lineup then you've got a lineup
  14. This would be brilliant put Idles on as BBC radio 1 headliner and replaced with Skepta or Wolf Alice would be perfect!
  15. I personally feel the main headliners are irrelevant as of next year. Stormzy personally I think had his peak winter 2020 and wouldn't shift that many tickets next year as he would've this year unless he releases some new material which I highly doubt he will. LG to be honest he wasn't big enough for a headline slot this year even after 'Why Me, Why Not' was released he would've shifted a fair few tickets plus he was playing at Latitude which personally I think will appeal more to his target audience, unless he co-headlines he won't be back next year. RATM I think they'll definitely be back rescheduled the same dates next year so there almost confirmed plus there a great headliner. My feeling is even though the festival has been cancelled many sponsors would've invested in the festival and food vendors would've reserved spots which all comes up to a significant amount of money, I know last year when Boardmasters got cancelled they did not refund any sponsors of food vendors not sure what festival republics policies are though with Reading & Leeds. If this is the case they'll probably book a few big names including headliners as there will be a lot of competition next year. I would go for personally. Foals // Gerry Cinnamon Tame Impala x Tyler The Creator // Wolf Alice RATM // Courteeners
