This is the longest sentence I've ever seen.

Kaiser Chiefs would probably have to play Kendrick day since they're at Victorious on the Friday. Only slots I could see them having are below Sum 41 on main or either side of Deaf Havana on Radio 1 if they realise how far they've fallen. Don't think they're likely.

Tent was packed in 2016 for The 1975 and surprisingly Two Door Cinema Club opposite the Chilli Peppers as well. 

Pretty sure that the 1975 were bigger than fall out boy and vaccines in august 2016 yet for some reason fall out boy coheadlined and vaccines were subbing (effectively 3rd down)

Looking back 2016 was such a good year

I finished the nights with: The 1975, Foals and Two Door Cinema Club. An indie fans wet dream. I personally thought it was better than last years lineup and will be better than this years too. Matter of opinion really though.

I thought last year was a really good lineup for my tastes tbh (Although it was my first ever proper festival so I may have just thought that because I didn't know any better) and this years lineup so far is already aligning quite a bit with my tastes just to a lesser extent.

I did 2016 too and I thought 2017 was way better for my tastes.

I didn't have any killer acts in 2016, but 2017 had Flume, Oh Wonder, Glass Animals and Muse who I all love

You have great taste. Did you go to EE before Glass Animals and Flume? My friends went and made me see them last night and they do not disappoint, best concert i've done even though the crowd was awful during Sundara (the support) it was like EE but lowkey became EDM especially for Night of the long knives, that song was incredible live been humming it since.

I saw the start of Everything Everything and the end of Carpenter Brut as I wanted to see both. Kinda wish I had done it the other way round as apparently the end of Everything Everythings set was great (and I fucking love Distant Past) but oh well.

 

That night for me was so stacked, went and caught a bit of Noisia too in the break (though it was dead in the dance tent as Eminem had just come on). Would have loved to have seen One OK Rock, Shame, Andy C, While She Sleeps, Flatbush Zombies and Baby Strange too but they all clashed with each other which was unfortunate.

I ditched everyone that night for Flatbush, cannot describe the love I have for them it was incredible to finally see them (and shake Zombie Juice’s hand). Although I do massively wish I saw Glass Animals. Also kind of regret picking Eminem over Flume.

Are we expecting the next announcement to be pretty much the full poster? Also, when are we thinking it might be? Scene as the latest bunch of acts were seemingly released prematurely to people's predictions. I feel like it may have been the case that the 2nd announcement was supposed to be released later than it was but due to the backlash the first lineup received they thought they'd try get people back on side by releasing the bigger acts sooner.

Hard to say really. There are fewer acts on the poster now than when they announced Eminem last year, so they’re still doing things at a slower rate.

It is usually the case that there’s a June announcement (after Slam Dunk or Download) where it’s all but completed aside from four or five acts and I can imagine that staying true.

Really haven't being paying attention to these threads so wasn't really sure if the timing of the next announcement has been debated or not. Personally, I'd be surprised if we get past the first week in April with no new acts being announced but ultimately this years R+L has just been a guessing game in terms of when info comes out.

I mean, its a similar amount of acts to the amount we had at this time in 2016, 2015 etc.

We just unusually got about double the normal acts in 2017.

 

But yeah, i expect we'll get the full poster in April sometime

There’s always at least thirty names still to come after April/May, not even counting later announced lineups like for the BBC Introducing or Alternative Stages. There’s no way they announce the whole thing next month.
