    Remember that Joe Strummer came from a middle class background and was basically the quintessential mockney.

    I see what you did there.

    2019 festival

    Where are IDLES? One of the most talked about guitar acts from the past year, you'd have thought they'd be nailed on for R&L.

    Maybe they could get slotted in, like Dua Lipa did last year. 5th would probably be right for them.

    Any realistic slots left for Greta Van Fleet? Would 7th down on the Foos day be too low?

    You're Trying Your Luck with puns like that.

    2019 Headliners

    If it's The Killers, do people still think The Strokes have a chance of being there? As I've said, it's madness that they've not played the festival once in their career. They could easily sub the Pyramid or headline Other.

    Still think it'd make sense if Shikari subbed.

    2019 Headliners

    Bruce knocked it out of the park that night. I remember Eavis getting fined £3k for him overrunning his slot by half an hour, and saying something along the lines of "I'd have paid much more than that for just half an hour of Springsteen." Blur were just magical though. Only better live performance I've ever seen was The Stone Roses at Heaton Park.

    2019 Headliners

    I watched all three headliners in 2009. All were excellent, but they got progressively better by day.

    Lineup 2020

    Pretty good, but not sure if BMTH will be around next year. I reckon a Wolf Alice/Catfish co-headline could be feasible if Wolf Alice's next album does well. Also Imagine Dragons are way too big to headline NME.

    I'm surprised IDLES haven't been booked as they've been one of the most talked about guitar bands over the past year. Can't think of where they could slot in.

    A lot of people thought they were too high and I still maintain that slot should have gone to The Gaslight Anthem.

    The Courteeners would never be booked to play Download. However, they did sub TRNSMT last year. What's your point?

    It's not bollocks. Download is a more niche festival than R&L, so bands tend to get higher slots there than they would at R&L. Case in point being the year both The Offspring and Lostprophets headlined. Neither BSC or BFMV would have subbed R&L in 2017.
