Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

Predictions for 2018

Recommended Posts

Green Man tends to be a lot of the previous year's EOTR and it has happened again....Ider, Omni, Bo Ningen, Xylouris White, Goat Girl, Beak, Baxter Dury, Lemon Twigs - all at last year's EOTR. Having said that, John Grant is always excellent, as are PSBroadcasting, and Courtney Marie Andrews would be brilliant. My personal wish is for Jagwar Ma, Ride, Django Django, John Grant and how about a bit of reggae from 6 Music 'flavour of the month' Hollie Cook?

For End of the Road's most recent Facebook competition to give away Ty Segall's stage outfit from last year, they awarded it to somebody whose dream headliner for this year was Bonnie Prince Billy. Maybe there's a clue in there?

It's what we've all been waiting for. It has to happen one day and I know Simon was at his Union Chapel show (which was brilliant!), so I'm hoping he chatted Will up then

Any clues from the primavera lineup? I know it’s a few months before, but just seeing who is touring this year

spiritualized would be good. No point in trying to guess as always have no idea, but always pleasantly surprised. Are MBV likely to play?

im guessing MBV, Bon Iver and Bonnie Prince Billy. Which means it isn’t going to be any of them.

This is my first year going to EOTR, and I've been getting excited at all these suggestions. As a newbie, when roughly does the line-up normally drop?

Anytime now!

Just found this thread. Love the fact that some of you started in September 17 so pretty much as soon as you got back! I'll tack a guess/wish at Wolf Alice, The Horrors, First Aid Kit, My Morning Jacket Trembling Bells to start.                                                                                                                                                                                   Having said that last year was only my second year and now I'm hooked simply by all the great new music I've discovered there. Any one know when we're likely to get first band announcement? Does no Glastonbury mean it'll likely be earlier than normal?

Total conjecture, but I have a feeling... It must be time for Courtney Barnett and I'm wondering whether they'd get Kurt Vile over too (he's played before), so that they possibly even do both solo and joint shows. I'd also consider long odds on Franz Ferdinand. They might have been too mainstream once, but they're also sufficiently art-rock and have new material. Possible Woods stage headline slot for First Aid Kit, who've worked their way up the other stages at EOTR over the years?

Predictos (of artists who have not been mentioned yet):

  • King Krule
  • King Gizzard
  • Ezra
  • (Sandy) Alex G
  • Flat Worms

I would be extremely happy with the above. Did not think about king krule, (sandy )Alex g. Would fit in perfect.

Again 

I wasn't aware that they headlined in 2014 but I guess a 4 year gap is long enough for festivals. Not really a fan of YLT but I haven't truly listened to their stuff so I'm very indifferent to them as headliners
