I think The Hunna are already on the decline, this new album has kinda flopped. I don't reckon they're gonna be booked next year, but if they are then 4th main/R1 sub sounds about right. Would probably be the best slot they'll ever get at a festival before they drop off completely.

Anyone know how well their tour has sold?

Shite apparently. I heard their Birmingham "residency" is barely half sold.

Are they really that big though? I'm not sure they really are quite that big yet. I'd say 4th down main or R1 Sub max surely. Like I get that they're decent sized and that's been recognised but I feel if booked it'll be like Broco, we all expect 3rd main, NME headline no doubt but in reality be a few slots below. I mean they're not quite the size of Pendulum, Wolf Alice, Skepta (as he was originally booked as the headliner), or even YMAS, Flume or Haim from last year are they?

Fair enough. Last I heard was that they were doing arenas so assumed they were big enough for the slots I said. If their shows aren't selling well then aye, forget that.

It’s all been downhill for The Hunna since they postponed their tour because it clashed with exams.

It's all been downhill for The Hunna since danz026 listened to them and realised they weren't actually one of his favourite bands.

Headlining NME is a good shout for Frank, and The Gaslight Anthem would make a great sub to him, if they haven't gone back on hiatus by then.

Damn, time flies. I still remember Leeds 2008 very vividly, like it was only a few years ago.

Yes yes yes.

Tbh I reckon Post Malone could possibly be the usual rap headliner next year. Drew a big crowd this year and his set was very impressive for as short as it was.

I'd say him and Travis are strong contenders to headline 2020 for sure. Not sure how good it'd look getting an act who played 5th down one year, headline the next with most likely no new material. Wait for another album and yeah he could easily headline.

They did it with The Strokes, albeit way back in 2001/2002.

Also The Darkness went from 4th down in 2003 to headlining 2004.

(Although both acts were bumped up the bill, but you know...)

Defo a reason to think Post could play high main next year and following his crowd would be an easy booking. Sticking him under Drake sounds the best idea but it's actually better to do under someone like TOP or BMTH...something like that as a day you think may not sell as well otherwise will probably have the crowd attending for the weekend due to Drake interest.

The Hunna are way too big for the FR Stage.

Definitely. They headlined 2 years ago and have only got bigger since. In my opinion they’d be big enough to play 3rd main with the current crowd if you compare them to The Vaccines and The Kooks who did it this year.

Oof, there go The Orwells out of my 2019 prediction lmao, had them to sub the FR.

I saw them supporting Weezer last year and they remain the single worst band I’ve ever seen. The singer was absolutely infuriating, almost as if he had googled ‘how to be a rock star’ and copied every tired trope terribly. Fucking poser.

I never actually saw them but have heard people saying they're shit live. Apparently they seemed fucked when they played Reading last year.

Between them and Starcrawler, you really don’t like rock and roll do you? :P

But yeah, I really liked their music and their live shows but fuck those creeps.

I remember watching the Orwell’s at BST before greenday where they drew about 35 people to their set. And the ego on that lad was unbearable, no wonder he’s a nonce.

are people thinking one rap headliner is the standard now? can understand thinking so because of there being one two years in a row, but i don't think there's an appropriate rapper around next year like kendrick as of now. except maybe drake, who is quite hard to pin down in terms of touring cause he typically just does whatever he wants.

I think a rap headliner will become standard yeah, but obviously if no one appropriate is available next year then it won't happen. Drake seems to be the most likely as you say. I guess Stormzy could if he's not doing Glastonbury and got new material out. The only others I can think would be Childish Gambino or Chance the Rapper who could potentially be billed as coheadliners.

Yeah of course, he completely slipped my mind.

Fwiw I agree with you about it not being a given. If they have something like Arctic Monkeys/The 1975/BMTH/Twenty One Pilots with a few high-profile hip-hop acts on the bill like Cardi B, A$AP Rocky, Tyler, etc. then I think they'll be fine in terms of hip-hop coverage
