Plan Bs first albums bangin

Yeah i like Plan B, not normally my cup of tea with that sort of music, but he's good, and the Ill Manors album worked well with the movie! Very good!

Maybe FR headliner? TBH I doubt it, he hasn't played the fest since 2006 so...

I doubt he’d play either, but if he did he’d probably want a main stage slot. Which would make him less likely!

Plan B was taking up third down slots before he went away, not sure where he'd be these days. Unless the album takes off he could probably get away with FR headliner against a strong main stage headliner.

Hmmm, do we think Foos will do R+L now that they are basically confirmed for TRNSMT.

What? Wait. When did this happen?

It didn't. TRNSMT has changed dates and now Foos are possible whereas before the move they were ruled out.

Yeah just seen the Transmission and speculation. I'm not a massive Foos fan but would have gone if it was true....................... except that weekend I'll be at Ramblin Man. I wonder if TRNSMT and RMF have collectively got someone which would account for the exciting development that caused the delay in the RMF announcement.

TRNSMT have booked Ratt?

Yeah, I’ve no idea really. Hasn’t played festivals in forever so there’s not much to base an opinion on. Just think he’s a fairly big name that they’d probably need to give a main stage slot to, 5th down would be about right. 

I had to witness him support the Stone Roses at Heaton Park in 2012. Utterly awful, the huge bar queue was more fun!

hahaha uv ruined my dreams lol 

I was well excited for them at Leeds 2012 but they were so dull it was ridiculous. Almost everyone had the same opinion, too. They were the same two years later at Glasto.

why have QOTSA been disregarded? this would be the first year that the secret set from the previous year hasn't played.

According to someone from Live Nation they're doing their own outdoor shows. I imagine Wolf Alice were supposed to be the secret set who played the following year but then QOTSA became a possibility because of their new album release so they got them in, too.

It's a bit different I think given the last few years to have headlined it then do a secret set and top it, others recent have done the headline set after the secret only...I know Green Day did but years and years ago.

Was that a confirmed source? It just seems bizarre to me, I think they are perfectly set up to co-headline with Royal Blood. It just fits.

QOTSA/ Royal Blood - Wolf Alice on the saturday night for me.

Also could we be seeing Bonobo playing a live set? It's a little left field for the standard R+L audience but i could see it working. Will they risk it?

The coheadline will defo be Foos if they are playing, Coheadline would probably be the weakest day (so will probs be on the Friday)

Don't see any reason why Bonobo will play, there was no reason why he couldn't do it last year and was in the area, don't see why he'd be back again. (And I don't think he's that left field, though I don't know where I would place him, NME sub maybe?)

There’s a new Glassjaw album coming in December. A NEW GLASSJAW ALBUM. Could see them headlining the Lock Up or reckon they could be more likely for DL?

Was just wondering what everyone's thoughts on twenty one pilots playing are.From my point of view haven't really grown that signifanctly in popularity since their last time at reading, certainly not enough to justify the often predicted sub slot. Any thoughts?

Yes those Foos are too small and weak a booking to headline outright. They need a co headline slot to give them some exposure and the step up they need. They'll be on with someone of a similar size so probably Guns and Roses. That will be an incredibly weak day but we need to nurture these future headliners.

whens the first announcement then?

Hoping it's next week but most likely gonna be 1st/2nd week in December. If Foos are announced for TRNSMT could they potentially be held back by R+L till later on, dunno if FR own TRNSMT you see.
