  1. Yeah 3rd is too high really, take that part back. But wherever the slot, they're in Stockholm for Lolla on July 3rd and happy to be 7th on that poster.
  2. I mean we already lost Brockhampton, whether that means we'll see replacements is another story, it's not like they need any help shifting tickets
  3. Such a shame about Brockhampton. I know they played 2019 but it would have been great to see them back. Would love to see an Earl Sweatshirt, Denzel Curry, Blu, Freddy Gibbs or JPEGMafia spot.
  4. What we saying, 6 new somewhat big names at 3pm UK? Wolf Alice, Idles, Turnstile, Modest Mouse, Bush, Fontaines D.C. I'm still saying Biffy Clyro are a shout to replace Faith No More but Liam Gallagher is more likely.
  5. Called the Mar-May postponement a few pages back, seemed like the obvious solution. L+R will still be on for them. Helps that our government is doing something good for once in trying to open back up quickly now that the spike's over. Hope we see that reflected through the rest of the year.
  6. Won't comment on the rest, but I think you'll be just fine at a festival with PJ and Metallica headlining 😄
  7. Added in the final batch December 13th.
  8. Tell me if I'm going mad here - Biffy Clyro? They're not exactly massive in Belgium, not playing there yet next year but have dates across Europe in concert hall size venues. We also now know Paramore are active this year although literally 1 date so far, so probably a one-off
  9. Not here sadly. 8 headliners already in place.
  10. Vaccinations don't stop anyone getting and spreading Covid.
  11. Too low, Jack is a headliner. Liam Gallagher is more that level for a non-UK festival. Bush maybe. Placebo would be perfect but they're not available.
  12. Okay, that's all I was saying really, not being into hip-hop, pop or electronic, there's almost no point in even looking at a Coachella lineup any more, wasn't suggesting people should have to listen to things they don't like. That being said you should check out Black Midi, Turnstile and Amyl & The Sniffers from this list if you haven't before. I'm off to RW for the first time myself this year since Metallica and Pearl Jam are still on my bucket list - that's one thing age will definitely do to you, not give you enough chances to see the old chaps!
  13. Perhaps Clutch is too far then, but not that far off. In the two main stage setup you need to reduce the overall amount of bands. Say Download has an average of 16 bands a day (2019), at best this becomes what, 12 bands? So you're looking at bands like Power Trip and Underoath to open is more like it.
  14. The main reason it doesn't work is that Download already has less bands across the first two stages than Leeds used to, so you'd have to cut say 17 bands down to 12 and make them all bigger bands with longer sets. Have Clutch start the day at 1pm, Lamb of God on at 3pm etc. which just sucks for the smaller names trying to break out
  15. Yeah it's tricky to pull off. L+R is quite clearly a "main main stage" and another one and it would just look silly putting Korn next to Slipknot
  16. L+R did it for Covid (and it stuck) which Download obviously isn't bothering with, but let's play for fun - tricky coming up with an actual 6 co-headliners for Download that make it look worth doing Bring Me The Horizon / The Offspring Nine Inch Nails / Faith No More Deftones / Korn Something like that maybe. Days would have to be stacked with bigger-than-usual names
  17. It's not unreasonable, but no, I have a good feeling about events in summer. Up until then it's pretty sideways.
  18. Totally agree, but not being interested in genres like hip-hop/pop/electronic and then going to a Coachella thread to thumb down a Coachella lineup just seems quite redundant. When was the last time it was rock-oriented? 2013 and then started moving away from that gradually?
  19. They've got 4 shows before Coachella, but "pulling out" of a festival they weren't even officially announced for is much easier than pulling out of a string of show dates. My prediction is they postpone the first half of their tour March - May until 2023 and play the dates July - August, assuming Covid looks better in summer.
  20. That's like 1/6 headliners and 15% of all bands if it's even true
  21. No, as in, their last show indefinitely, they're going on hiatus as a band. Sucks.
  22. You're right, it would be 20 years since St. Anger...
  23. Uh oh. https://www.cbsnews.com/news/kanye-west-ye-battery-suspect-los-angeles/
  24. Only had half an hour to throw it together so some things are definitely off. Mastodon deserve that slot IMO after one of the best metal albums of 2021. Agree that the placement is weird though and I can see Architects subbing too. Agree on the others, couldn't think of good 3rd slot fits that were interesting, only bands like Trivium came to mind.
