    Green Man 2019

    Idles as discussed are one of the big rumours. Doubt Cave's new album will be out by the summer and he wouldn't tour before then. GBQ... who knows?

    Sock and Phobophobes both played Rising last year, so that might be an automated addition.

    Euros Childs.

    Green Man 2019

    They're the next band listed on the poster, and those on there are actual huge mainstream commercial acts (and Franz, who were one not so long ago) Though they're also fourth on the bill of Bring Me The Horizon's day at All Points East (behind Nothing But Thieves, whoever they are) That all said, different target audiences mean different priorities, Solange went in a year from second stage at Lovebox to headlining Latitude without anything new in between - not to mention King Gizzard going from third from top of EOTR's Big Top in 2016 to headlining GM '17.

    2019 Predictions

    I'd be surprised if she misses another festival summer, though, and also miss both EOTR and Green Man twice - were I them I'd offer a Milk! Records Tipi takeover, bringing Jen Cloher, Tiny Ruins, Loose Tooth etc over and maybe Katie Harkin as she's been playing in Barnett's band and is due to unveil her solo material soon. I'd love Sleater-Kinney but if they're only just starting in the studio I very much doubt they'd be ready to come over and reveal the new songs in time. I don't know how many would be headline size but Bon Iver, Spoon, TV On The Radio and Torres are all due albums this year.

    2019 Predictions

    Catfish played the Thursday one year when it was all unadvertised in advance - think it was a Communion Records deal. Mumfords played twice before their first album, I think the first time they also backed Laura Marling. Iain Archer played in 2009, then became a songwriter who works with Snow Patrol, Jake Bugg and James Bay.

    2019 Predictions

    No-one up for Courtney Barnett? Looks like she's in Europe around June so is in a good place to come back at the end of the summer, and Green Man have hinted she's not playing there.

    Green Man 2019

    Not that I think they will, but I love how there's a thought on here that Idles could headline Green Man while in another thread there's a debate about whether they're big enough to headline 2000 Trees.

    Wait, when did the Futureheads reform?

    Green Man 2019

    You could easily say the same about James Blake in 2016 or Beirut and Neutral Milk Hotel from 2014, though. I definitely think you could have them headline if you have them as a UK festival exclusive and maybe two more secure crowd pullers for the other full days.

    2018 - Your Thoughts

    Is it really, though? The first one was sold primarily on Byrne and the two since have been drastically different shows, not to mention she's a lot bigger now than she was even on that last visit. If we can accept repeat visits by John Grant...

    2019 Predictions

    King Gizzard headlined Green Man this year, I doubt they'd be on Garden.

    2018 - Your Thoughts

    I can only think EOTR, and maybe Patrick, didn't know what form of the band was going to do these European shows when they were booked and the splits planned out, as I know they're going back to full band for their next US jaunt.
