They're making their 6th album after R&L, I could see them being co-headliners the next time they come to the festival, probably in 2020 or 2021. They'll close the main stage at Leeds and be second last at Reading if that's the case. I saw them at Neighbourhood Weekender which was in Warrington and the crowd was absolutely massive.

Yup, if they get a bigger show under their belt down south like at least Wembley Arena...should be more than that really but was good enough for other lesser options before. I don't deny they are loved there, done their own outdoor show.

They’re clearly not a big cellar.

There’s a reason why female fronted bands never get far compared to the male ones. Paramore are the only headliner I can think of and they’re incredibly overrated anyway. The only reason they get list

fingers crossed ADTR are crossed off the lineup and replaced with a better sub because they’re rubbish

Fake news. The entire tour sold out apart from Brixton which is close to selling out. Having said that I might have misjudged their popularity a little bit. I always think they’re basically on a par with Courteeners who are subbing this year hence why I thought they might sub.

There was still tickets this morning when I looked. I like blossoms a lot, ain’t close to the courteeners around the north west tho.

Have they ever done something like this with a band closing the coheader spot at one site and not at the other, as for Courteeners it makes so much sense.

Yeah 's what co-heads usually do, most recently in 2014 with QOTSA closing Reading and Paramore closing Leeds.

FOB were basically a glorified sub to Biffy in 2016, as Panic are to Kendrick.

What would R+L gain from bumping up Courteeners though? They already sell to about all the people interested in seeing them play Leeds every two years and wouldn't be able to have them headline every two years; it'd be no good for Courteeners to start rejecting smaller slots and festivals because they won't get anything else, so it just looks weak as hell when one of R+L's headliners is playing 7pm on the Other Stage. Besides, the band has peaked as it is.

Disclosure and Foals swapped in 2016 also I believe

Strokes made themselves look average. Pulp made them look like dogshit.

At Reading when Jarvis joined them on stage JC just looked embarrassing trying to keep up him, Cocker being the charisma volcano that he is.

Was well confused until I realised by JC you meant Julian Casblancas and not Jarvis Cocker :lol:

Starting to think The 1975 might be more likely to do Glasto next year and R&L in 2020. Was thinking Stormzy was a possibility at Glasto but I think he'd make more sense at R&L next year - more time for a second album to be released, hasn't played R&L since 2016 (before his debut was released), struggling to think of another hip hop artist that could headline next year as that seems to be the route R&L is going down.

With that in mind:
Friday - Stormzy, Two Door Cinema Club
Saturday - Arctic Monkeys, The Streets
Sunday - Twenty One Pilots, Childish Gambino

BMTH would couple well with TOP if Download don't get them.

2020 being something like The 1975, Travis Scott, Foos.

Parquet Drive announced for Wacken next August. Makes them probably about 80% for BOA and 20% for R+L but who knows.

Yeah go on. I don't reckon they'd go down that well at Bloodstock personally. Wouldn't at R&L either of course, but at least wouldn't need to headline so I think they're fairly likely.

Where would they play at R&L? They’re certainly big enough to headline the NME tent but I don’t think that’d be a booking that’d go down that well. Probably 4th down man stage.

Got them as 5th main on my prediction but would probably do 4th yeah.

 

Also, would Stormzy co-head or outright headline? Who could he co-head with?

Don't think it would really matter. I reckon TDCC would be a good sub for him. They could bill that as a coheadliner if they wanted like they have with Kendrick/Panic!, with Stormzy closing both sites.

I think Stormzy if his second album does as well as the first could possibly headline outright. I love TDCC but I don't think they are the right sub/co-header for Stormzy.

Yeah I was thinking 4th down main stage. 21 Pilots getting the heavy day :lol:

Yeah I think that's a good prediction to be honest. Foo's I think are likely for R&L when they return and Travis Scott is a similar transition to Kendrick. Reason is largely due to money for Kendrick not doing Glasto....I really don't think he needs to take that slot at the minute at all.

Arctics thought for me are Glastonbury. I'm at The 1975, Arctics and one of Madge or FM atm.
