I only actually reckon 1 of those headliner suggestions might happen. It's a shame that that band is by far and away the worst of the lot.

Are Less Than Jake really likely to headline given they played mid-afternoon a few years ago?

 

Parkway Drive and Rise Against are real possibilities though.

Had a great time at Midlands this year! Much preferred the layout of them shifting all the stages to the bottom of the Festival Area, was easier to get around. 

Although a weak year in my opinion over the past few years I've been, it was still great fun. Templeton Peks lead vocalist is very strong, was a great festival opener. Lower Than Atlantis were really good, so were PVRIS, my boys in Zebrahead (again getting huge crowds!) and Good Charlotte. 

During GC some girl infront of us threw up on the floor creating a very stinky little circle where people watched  in disbelief that they just had their shoes chundered on... after 10 mins we all just jumped around in it cause we were having fun haha.

Bar AOF is be happy with all of them but AFI or Weezer preferred. I actually don't think they'd get Weezer though, I want to say Offspring too as they feel a name too big.

I don't see the route changing as it sells well, I also think Rancid would be in headline contention at least of the smaller big stage JEW closed due to rarity. NFG, LTJ, Alkaline Trio would all be great though I see clashes coming.

Alexisonfire would be pretty awesome. 

I can see Pierce The Veil subbing next year.

I think Flogging Molly being booked on this Fireball tour is probably a safe bet to assume they'll book them on the Fireball Stage next year.
