This is the longest sentence I've ever seen.

If the headliners are Royal Blood / Imagine Dragons (or Paramore), Kendrick and Foos then it could be the first time in a fair few years that all the headliners are actually British festival exclusives (bar maybe R1BW). Can't really see any of those headliners making an appearance elsewhere, although I suppose it's a bit too soon to say.

From a quick google the last time the festival had 3 exclusives was 2013, although Biffy did play R1BW.

Might Foos still play TRNSMT?

any ANYONE that says about not being able to afford AMs and Foos - they had Eminem AND Muse last year.

 

oh, and do they jus get Fall Out Boy on the cheap every 2 years? They must have nudes of Mr. Festival Republic

Muse didn't sell out their day tickets till about a week before the festival even with Liam as a support - foos and arctics will sell out their days instantly regardless of support. Muse are awesome but they are just not on the same level as foos or arctics. Eminem was meant as the bigger headliner with muse as the inbetween and kasabian as the cheaper headliner.

Nah they have a us tour starting 7th July and the only trnsmt slot left is 6th july. Tbh I thought they were nailed on for Sunday 1st July until AM rumours started to circulate . They will probably do Glasgow summer sessions with r+l.

It isn't as rigid as you're making it out to be. Both Eminem and Muse are huge headliners and could easily be the biggest headliner in any given year. Kasabian are probably a mid-level headliner. Last year's trio was just a stronger trio than usual.

I agree that Muse aren't on the same level as Foos or AM but they're still in the top bracket.

Wouldn't be so sure, Arctics didn't even sell out the presale when that went up for TRNSMT.

Yeah that makes them all the more likely for R&L then I suppose, who's the favourite for the last TRNSMT headliner?

good news, I'd be happy with Loyle Carner at R&L

He was one of my highlights of the weekend last year, I'd love to see him again.

 

On a separate note, any chance of The Strypes somewhere on the undercard?

Jack white has a show on the 4th and 7th so he could, but then surely it would have been announced at the same time as his other dates ? 

I originally thought QOTSA because their finsbury park show wasn't UK exclusive , but they have a show somewhere else now on the 6th.

Pearl Jam have a free day, but again they've already seemingly announced their whole Europe festival schedule.

Maybe a smaller headliner like the libertines bc arctics and killers must've both been quite expensive to book.

Depeche mode maybe?

NGHFB could play too; Liam is on the first weekend so booking them both on different weekends would probably be okay. 

Can't think of anyone else really for TRNSMT

Okay fair enough I see what you mean in comparison to 2015 and 16 where rhcp and Metallica were very significantly above the other two , maybe it's just because muse seemed to be basically everywhere between 2015-17 that I just grew a bit tired of seeing them announced at every festival that my opinion of their status dropped a bit.

NME did article on Smashing Pumpkins and said dates are coming up in 'coming months' could they headline or is it more likely a Download next year?

They probably wouldn't do R&L this year, I'd say Download next year could definitely happen.

Yeah I got really excited about this and brought it up a few days back , But realistically I don't think they'll ever play reading again. Just woudlnt appeal . Download 2019 w BMTH and someone else would be epic. Maybe a UK arena tour sometime late 2018/early 2019 as they're defo planning a reunion tour.

Wouldn't appeal would be so good. Clutching at straws and laughing to myself may be a reunion act and why its taking so long :P

Has anyone heard anything about the White Lies UK festival announcement at all ? Said it was going to be this Monday, but nothing tweeted by them or anything...

Probably 6 or 7PM, Bet its Kendal or something like that. Would be quite naive for it to think it would be RandL.

That makes sense for Bring me the Horizon schedule...

2018: Reading and Leeds

2019: Download

2020: TRNSMT? Glastonbury?

Just a thought.

Edit: Maybe not headline Glastonbury but make up a spot.
