Headliners: The National // Florence and the Machine // The Prodigy

Vampire Weekend // The War on Drugs // St. Vincent // Ben Howard

Complete guess.

How quickly do tickets normally sell out for this? Had my eye on it for a couple of years considering finally doing it but would like to wait for the line up. 

The National would seem likely given they're in Europe the week after, would the two dates at Donnybrook in June play a factor in how likely they are though?

As fun as it would be, aren't Kendrick Lamar and Arctic Monkeys perhaps a little too big for this?

No. Arctic Monkeys played a few years ago, and Kendrick played a festival half the size here in 2016. they probably won't splash out on both of them though, especially after getting away with relatively low-profile headliners last year.

Those gigs are with a different promoter so basically zero chance The National play.

It sold out last year before the lineup was announced. They went on general sale on Saturday and still available, but I wouldn't be at all surprised if they sell out after the lineup announcement tomorrow.

The War on Drugs are headlining a festival here in June, so no chance of them either.

Thanks for letting me know, might keep an eye out tomorrow then and make a decision quickly!

Great shout apart from war on drugs but that would be insane and quite realistic aswell

Bit disappointed about no "rock" headliner :(

I'm the same, I'm guessing there's a couple more to come? 2015/16 had 5-6 names at the top, and 2017 had 10 in their own font/logo before the rest of the list, so either way there should be more? But yeah I was hoping one would be in this announcement too, under the headliners its quite a good line up for me  but I'm already seeing Massive Attack and can't say I'm overly bothered by Kendrick.

I noticed Sleaford Mods were added in the official announced which is pretty cool, I'm happy with most of that to be honest. Kendrick Lamar and St Vincent are great bookings and I'd rather Massive Attack and NERD over seeing Arctic Monkeys or Muse for the 5th or 6th time.

Yeah think St Vincent posted the Draft poster by mistake, either they're coming in a later announcement / not playing

Jesus they must be really scrimping on the budget if Sleaford Mods pulled out.

nerd is a poor headliner 

Yeah a weak headliner.. I don't know if I have ever met a fan of NERD. Not a terrible line up but it is the weakest to date in my opinion.

tbh they might not be a headliner they might just be a logo act but tbh I would expect st Vincent, dua lipa and ben howard to be logo aswell

Jeez its a bit of a wait for this second main announcement and I know last year the second announcement was about 23rd June, but apart from the Theatre of Food announcement there has been nothing since March.  At this point I think they are taking the piss here considering End of the Road has announced their day splits.  I guess that Arcade Fire could be a possible contender with maybe NERD subbing them or doing a co-headline.
