See Lovebox got Wu-Tang as a UK exclusive and it's more that likely the same with Gambino. Wireless got Stormzy & RAE SREMMURD. Bestival got Silk City. EOTR got Vampire Weekend. I'm sure this can be added to as I've probably missed some out.

I don't think anybody has been announced as an exclusive as of yet have they? I mean with the amount of money they have to spend on acts surely they could have ended up with some of these acts on an exclusive instead of them playing smaller fests and they wouldn't look out of place at all. Don't know if it is just me but exclusivity makes acts seem much more exciting.

Definitely poor if they're gonna mark them as the main exclusives in the upcoming months.

Maybe exciting wasn't the right word. It makes it more interesting if it's someone who you may not get to see for a significant amount of time/ever again.

Yeah understandable when it’s a special one-off kinda thing but the majority of those acts you listed are gonna be touring again next year, and are gonna be all around Europe as well in what I reckon will be something of a watershed year for people finding their festivals abroad.

Besides, even if R+L don’t name them as such, many of the acts are gonna at least be English festival exclusives. Including the headliners, which is commendable in a year where every other festival has one of Stereophonics, The Killers and Liam Gallagher headlining.

Dua Lipa, and I'm offering that without further comment.

St vincent is about close to reading as unlikely as that is

She's here for End of the Road, and doing three shows leading up to it, including Edinburgh on the Saturday of R&L weekend, not that she was likely in the first place.

According to the reading and Leeds app pendulum are a UK festival exclusive, but that’s all I seem to have noticed.

Maybe as a live act but there are a bunch of other DJ sets going on (tho as I have explained before, they are basically separate entities)

See Justice are in Europe the weekend before R+L. Dance tent headliner maybe or is that slot too small for them?

I imagine a dj set would be too small for them but can always hope

Lovebox actually got Wu-Tang, guess I'm forking out £70 for a day ticket, will be worth every penny

 

Reading next announcement has a lot of potential still, still about 60% of lineup to be announced.

I'd love to see them as obviously they're legends but I've heard they're terrible live so be cautious.

Sure but I doubt we're getting anyone near the size of Wu Tang

Truthfully it doesn't matter how terrible they are live, will still have an amazing time as they are probably my #1 of all time. The Live at Montreux recording sounds amazing too, but of course they have aged!

Probably not, but we already have Kendrick & Travis, who I'd argue are the biggest captures around at the moment!
