Well they have headlined the biggest festival in the world

If you’re on about Coachella I’d hardly say their headline slot amounts to their popularity to a great extent. Knowing that festival they were probably chosen because the light show would look Instagram aesthetic

Yeah but they obviously are very popular. A total no-mark couldn’t headline Coachella, light show or not.

The Stone Roses headlined Coachella and they’re total no-marks in most of the world.

Does anyone know when the next announcement is likely to be for Reading Festival?

I was just thinking that. Should be soon, there’s usually one just after Slam Dunk

Does anyone think there could be a chance that Cassia get added? Could be a booking for an early slot somewhere

Could easily see them there to be fair. Probably on the festival republic stage early on or on the bbc introducing stage later on.

Instalment plans end tomorrow don't they? Imagine we'll get an announcement in the next week or two, unless they wait until after Download for whatever reason.

They've just announced I Don't Know How But They Found Me, Da Baby, Hoodie Allen and The Compozers.

Hopefully we'll get a bigger announcement soon.

Does anyone know anything about anyone playing the 1Xtra stage this year? I thought I was doing well at keeping up with hip hop but it’s just random words and letters. Is DaBaby a big thing?

Dappy is playing, he's young and hip right?

Happy with IDKHow but Hoodie Allen's placement probably makes Night Riots and 21P clash which is annoying for me. Saturday has the fewest bands I want to see anyway without them clashing them.

Headie One, Octavian and YBN Nahmir are the only noteable names on there for me, much better rap acts on other stages though such as AJ, Gunna, NAV and Lil Uzi

Bombay just announced a handful of dates, including an Ireland show in the first weekend of August. Surely must be in with a chance for being the Secret Set (yes I know they’re down as an exclusive at Wilderness but when has that stopped certain acts?)

I think that definitely backs it up. Especially since Tyler, the creator has just announced a US tour around the time of R&L and he was a major contender.

If it's a secret set it surely doesn't matter if they're exclusive or not, Wilderness won't be arsed about a secret set as it's unannounced so won't affect their ticket sales. Exclusives are just about selling more tickets at the end of the day.

How many more names are we expecting in the next announcement? Wondering if anyone else will fit in on the main stage on Friday but doubt it now. Someone like Yonaka, Tom Grennan or Sam Fender would have been nice

There's only 30-odd names left probably and it'll largely be bands on the Pit and 1Xtra I suspect. We're still down one on Friday main but I'm expecting it to be a guest opener sort of situation for a slightly bigger name to kick the festival off.

Nofx and Less than Jake just got announced for a festival in Devon the weekend before Reading/Leeds. Would be incredible if either of them were a late addition to the R/L line up.

That would be absolutely incredible but can’t see it happening, no obvious place on the line up for a start.

The days of them booking these bands seem a distant memory.

Not really, Sum 41 played recently and Papa Roach. ADTR this year and they are still rocky bands. YM@6. I wouldn't rule it out happening. For a 2nd year running it's gone to show there is a market for there to still be a rockier band day.

PUP and Royal Blood clashing would be horrible, hopefully when the official times come out PUP are somehow before them.

I saw Pup on that headline run in April, definitely go and see them over Royal Blood.
