  1. There were plenty of American acts that played the same R&L which they pulled out of plus other fests and shows last year though. I suppose you can say American acts are more likely to pull out of because they have to travel more and there's a higher percentage of Americans not getting a jab so there's more restrictions for those ones but I fully expect to see American bands in the UK/EU this year.
  2. Looks decent for £20. If it was closer then I’d might go.
  3. That's a controversial statement. I’d probably call Death Magnetic their weakest, it’s just a redundant album in the scheme of things since it’s an okayish version of what they have done. Even as shit as Reload, St Anger or Lulu were at least there’s a purpose or an idea for them unlike Death Magnetic. Out of the first five which everyone seems to love And Justice For All is the weakest for me, I’d bump it to 6th and bring in Hardwired as 5th. Hardwired did what I thought wasn’t possible any more and made me give a shit about new Metallica music even if it is a few songs too long.
  4. I'm always happy seeing The Bronx play so I'm happy with this announcement. 🙂 They are probably on the Dickies stage, it was only removed last year as there were too many bands pulling out.
  5. A batch of tixs for Foo Fighter's UK tour has just been released for anyone who missed them first time round.
  6. How are Hanson big enough to play Roundhouse? The last one hit wonder I saw was Wheatus and that was in a club for a fiver.

    2022 New Music

    To be honest after Frankie T talking about how the next album was gonna be back to a hardcore sound I'm kinda disappointed with the singles so far even if they aren’t bad.
  8. Gorillaz are playing APE this year. It's a decent line up too with IDLES, Pusha T, Self Esteem etc on it.
  9. Instore and their website are the same price, it's just harder finding their sale/reduced items on the website.
  10. I second (or third?) Banquet Records. I use to go there all the time when I lived in South London plus they do alot in the community and put on shows way above their weight.
  11. I've always found agreeing to disagree a sort of weird paradox saying, it's just so much easier saying I can't be arsed with this anymore. In any case Dental has a billion posts and another billion upvotes, I call him winning the disagreement.
  12. Yep, we are actually the fools for not doing the Youtube-social media influencer thing and giving our time away for free. Matt in particular should give it a try, he has just enough upbeatness with his posts to carry it well as opposed to alot of other posters on here who tend to bitch, rant and moan too easily about festivals.
  13. I would have thought before the 31st Dec which was before the price bump which they sort of did in Nov though. So maybe before the next payment plan installment at the end of this month. I've been giving Pinkshift a listen simply because I've not heard of them before and they are on the line up. They are fairly decent, I might check them out at the fest now as long as they aren't clashing.

    2022 Headliners

    KoRn would need a few years away but think of the heroes welcome they would get when they finally do return and as a headliner too. Copping has talked about all of those before but has never pulled it off though. I've never been overly impressed with Copping myself, Downloaders seem to celebrate as he has a hard job and pulls off a few miracles like AC/DC or Faith No More but he seems to get burnt alot of the time. Like Faith No More's return went from exclusive, to festival exclusive to just playing the fest or getting Blink 182 to headline in the 00s but then they spit up and there's a story about in 08 he thought he had booked Rage, Foos and Rammstein to headline (this was before Rammstein use to play festivals) so he put his feet up on a job well done only for all three of them decided they didn't want to play so Download ended up with KISS, Lost Prophets and The Offspring in a last minute scramble whilst there were options like Sex Pistols playing the same weekend at IOW, Slipknot would have been a better bump etc. Maybe his headliner bookings are the safe same old thing as when he tries something else he fails to get them or does with heavy compromise like AC/DC refusing to be on the line up hoodie.

    2022 Headliners

    There's a handful of bands that can make a fresh jump to headliner for them. Ghost are on headliner form and should be a contender, Bring Me should heave headlined already and KoRn already pull headliner sized crowds. The biggest challenge for them is trying to convince bands to play as The Who, Green Day, Foo Fighters, Pearl Jam, Blink 182, Bon Jovi,Nickelback etc could help ease their headliner troubles but they don't seem to want to play or Copping is just shit at persuading them. But the annoying part is the undercard. It seems younger bands like Architects have lost interesting playing at Download and there's acts like Code Orange, Ghost, Greta Van Fleet, Slaves, IDLES, Royal Blood, Nothing But Thieves etc have never played the fest or never played the mainstage despite some of the most talked about rock/punk/metal etcs in the UK for last few years.

    2022 Headliners

    Yeah Dave's tour was an instant sell out which includes two nights at The O2 which is headliner form plus to the kids who go to R&L he's massive, it's a pitch perfect booking for both of them. It's like that every year at Download, they haven't got their finger on the pulse at all. It's shocking that Bring Me the biggest UK metal band of the last few years have only ever played Download mainstage once.

    2022 Headliners

    Nah, loads of acts are back on tour at the same time so it's a generally more choice for fests. However I’ve seen people are still complaining just because they can and try to minimize the acts though, like; Muse are no longer a stadium act because they are at IOW even though they had a sold out stadium tour a few years ago. Glasto are desperate as they have Billie Eillish despite being a white hot international acts who sold shit loads of dates. Rage Against The Machine at Reading only appeals to CEX workers. Dave isn’t a headliner nor is Stormzy. The only exception to putting out a stronger than usual line up is Download who have stuck with almost the same headliners since 2020 despite Metallica, Avenged Sevenfold etc being available now and choosing not to replace the bands that have pulled out so bands like The Distillers have been bumpedup but look out of place headlining the second stage or brining in shit like Steel Panther. Of course Download tries to offer the most boring line ups possible every year so it’s really no change.

    2022 Headliners

    He still complains about the pop punk festival needing to book more pop punk bands in there though.
  19. They might have got a bump up because it will be their first UK shows but touchwood he actually turns up considering how often these American rappers cancel due to "unforeseen circumstances" even before covid restricted travel.
  20. That day is pretty strong already, even if they aren't the strongest sub they can get away with it. It's like when Frank Carter was 3rd so people were convinced someone else was gonna be added but with Foos shifting tixs there wasn't a need. To be honest I'd rather have a sub that correlates with the headliner than some random shit just chuked on the line up because they are big enough for the slot.
  21. Yungblud wouldn't have shocked me if they were a weaker co/smaller main stage headliner, that tour they did shift alot of tixs and they are an act on the rise. I was sceptical about him just because he played the prior year so it seemed abit too soon for that kind of bump. People always moan that the act who has just been bumped isn't big enough to headline, fuck there are regular posters in this forum who are saying Stormzy and Dave aren't headline size still. lol
  22. I already go to Boomtown which costs the same as the major fests depsite not having major headliners so if the £350 middling fest is well curated and is well organized then yeah I'd pay it. Tbh price isn't even one of top 5 things I look at when go to a fest and it not being a 100,000+ crowd is a plus.

    Yeah, I went into it thinking it's meant to be this gen's Doctor Strangelove but it's jokes just weren't sharp enough. It's portrayal of denialism was spot on but at the same time with Trump, Covid, Black Lives Matter, Brexit, Climate Change etc I've seen that sort of satire/portrayal done to death for the last few years already.
  24. I'm selling a standing IDLES tix at Brixton on the 17th Jan with Self Esteem supporting for face value. If anyone is interested just send me a private message.
