Bastille, Ben Howard, Snow Patrol.

Wowzers.

Eww. Please no Bastille as headliners, a penultimate spot would fit them better

Goldfrapp and John Cale subbed last year, though. It'd be a bit of a jump for this year to have a sub bigger than last one of last year's headliners. Same with the Ben Howard shouts.

He's just been announced for the BBC's Biggest Weekend thing, too. Man's about to be everywhere again and as such he definitely has to be a leading contender for this, now, however dreary that may be.

Surely Biggest Weekend must make him less likely? At least a headliner.

Why? Swansea is nowhere near Blythburgh.

Just isn't a very exclusive booking for a headliner and Melvin likes an exclusive. Cant see the headliners being at any other UK festivals but could be wrong.

FR (and other organisers) constantly claim 'exclusives' that are only 'exclusives' if you don't count the Big Weekend as a festival. Probably because it's near-impossible to get tickets - obviously, acts playing an event nobody can get tickets to isn't going to affect your demand.

that's because just about every band in the world is sat around waiting for their Big Weekend booking.

So I've been told by someone who books bands they all see that as the very best exposure they can get. So I guess Melvin's wants of exclusivity might fall second to that with many bands.

True but Latitude don't share many/any acts with Big Weekend looking at the past few years. Don't reckon its gonna be James Bay and hopefully not Snow Patrol either.

If they're going to do a repeat booking, Kraftwerk are active (played in '13).

Are you on about James Bay? He’s at IOW and TRNSMT also (and probs more in the UK) so wouldn’t be an exclusive anyroad. He’s third down at either of those so I don’t think he’s gonna headline this.

You can’t compare Bastille or Ben Howard to Fleet Foxes really. They knew who they were booking when they booked Fleet Foxes, it appeals to a different audience and their popularity thru different metrics I suppose. If ‘well they’re bigger than Fleet Foxes’ is about to be a thing then it’s an open door.

Would love to see Kraftwerk return as they're around in July but they're in Belgium on the Saturday so doubtful.

The dream would be LCD Soundsystem or Sigur Ros. Think it will be:

Fri: Bastille + St Vincent 

Sat: The Chemical Brothers + James Bay 

Sun: Snow Patrol + George Ezra 

Special guest: Grace Jones

That's because, in reality the first week of March is not long to go!

People are saying on here that acts playing Madcool Festival will most likely not be playing. It's only a 4 hour and 45 minute flight to Norwich Airport and a further 1 hour and 12 minute drive to Latitude Festival. I do reckon most acts playing their will have slots at Latitude Festival too!

Nobody has said that acts at Mad Cool will not play Latitude, however crossover has been limited in the past.
