Am I being soft or does it not say who's playing each day on that? Because it says Saturday and Sunday for Leeds, so does that mean either Mystery Jets or Let's Eat Grandma are playing the Saturday? I've been after someone to watch instead of the 1975. I like a couple of Dave songs but one of them two would be a great option for me and my group

EDIT: Just checked Mystery Jets twitter and it says they're closing the stage on Saturday, hopefully that means regular headliner time not earlier/later, assuming LEG could be Sunday headliner then, shame because I've followed them since their first record but I would have to watch peace over them

The Transgressive line-up is after the other stages have closed, it's part of the late night line-up (at Leeds anyway, not sure how it works at Reading) - so there won't be any clash with 1975, Peace etc.

LEG are playing at Headrow House in Leeds on the Sunday, it's an event with several acts on (e.g. Self Esteem), and they seem to be the headliner so either they are playing very late on the Sunday night (to get there after they've finished their slot in the city centre) or they are playing Saturday night and staying in Leeds.  If that's correct about Mystery Jets playing the Saturday, then it would seem to fit better having LEG on the Sunday.

Honestly starting to think they're just ending the Pit early every day, I can't think of any other reason to have held back 3-4 bands on the stage each day at this point.

Someone said that last year they didn’t complete the Pit/Lock up until August 1st, the BBC introducing stage announced the same time.

Obviously BBC introducing has already been announced so it won’t be the same as last year haha

What was the ‘heavy’ day last year? 

well i'd say the kendrick day but it was a mix which is what I enjoyed. sum 41, skindred, deaf havana, pendulum, trash boat and it was a pretty heavy pit top lot too. with pendulum though you had the dancey crossover...it was all just singled out heavy.

Still not see why we're even considering Slipknot - why bother when you could just get Liam Gallagher who would be cheaper and has songs that people who like all genres know a few of or someone along those lines. He's sold a O2 date out and announced another too along with other tour stuff so is definitely big enough to a co, if not a solo headline honestly as if the second o2 date sells out that matches the 1975 plus he's massive at Leeds which always struggles with sales.

Liam Gallagher would be such a boring headliner. Not like I'm a huge fan whatsoever but I'd much rather Slipknot as they're a much more interesting booking.

Because its editable by anyone and someone moved it. Don't think theres an actual reason, but I'm guessing that they don't think they'll clash with Foos.

Honestly I can't see R&L having a metal headliner ever again apart from BMTH who aren't even a metal band anymore. Metallica might get one last go of it too. I think Slipknot's best chance of headlining R&L was probably around 2008-2011 when their music was more Accessible and radio friendly. The festival is definitely moving away from heavy bands at the top of the bill.

^^^ fair enough with that, LG is not the most exciting pick i'd prefer Noel anyway to be honest (prefer his set and he'd be subbing probably so freeing a slot :D )

The world should just ignore both Gallaghers now and hopefully they go away.

Liam headlining would be so poor. Yeah, it’d please a load of people but they’d all only be waiting around for the 30 minutes of Oasis songs.

If anything, they’ll make sure Shikari clash with the Foos otherwise that tent is going to be rammed.

Oh probably, like I said it's an arbitrary change because it can be edited by anyone, I wouldn't put any stock in it.

Liam's solo stuff is very popular and also excellent, he's just released what a lot of people are saying is one of the songs of the last couple of years (once), and then you have Noel, his latest stuff isn't for everyone but he is doing something different and pushing the boat out and experimenting. People don't want Liam because he's doing the same thing over and over, but you also don't want Noel when he's doing the opposite?

Liam would smash it, I saw him headline both parklife and benicassim last summer and he killed it both times. He did a great glasto slot too just gone. After seeing the direction the festival is going lately with more pop headliners there would be a lot of happy people if Liam was top of the bill next year. He is huge right now and his voice is sounding incredible.

It looks increasingly likely that the stage will close early. Clashing with ADTR will do the job.

Well, all of Liam’s live videos I’ve seen consist of the crowd being static for his own stuff apart from Wall of Glass. They go nuts for the Oasis stuff because that’s all they’re waiting for. He sounded bum at Glastonbury. Really, really bum. The ‘best song’ thing is a non-point, really. I think that The Menzingers have recently released one of the best songs of the past several years. It doesn’t mean anything. 

Noel makes music for people who buy their albums from Tesco. He’s in the same bracket as Snow Patrol and the Stereophonics. Thankfully, he isn’t big enough to be discussed as a potential headliner.

I wouldn’t be surprised by Liam headlining whatsoever and I do think that he is probably big enough to do it. I just think that it would be a really dull booking and performance. 

Slipknot on the other hand :ninja:
