Surley you must have heard of Soulfly and Max Cavera?  Amazing band.

I have been listening to Earth Crisis,  Idles and Turbowolf on Spotify this week, all good bands if you're into that sort of thing.

I really like hacktivist, they'r kind of a UK rap metal band.

Feed the Rhino are blowing me away with their new album, it's a much cleaner guitar sound that most of the bands on this lineup, I expect them to be great live.

Idles are a must see for me! A few other bands, bit of a crossover with last year's Glastonbury (going to happen being earache). Looking forward to it.

it's about to sell out of 'normal' tickets, which means the coaches will then go quickly because people will panic.

if you want a ticket, get in there now!

Are Limp Bizkit headlining? On the website it says they're headlining the Town Centre not Lions Den like Die Antwoord & Gorillaz.

Someone mentioned them being opposite Gorillaz?

I thought perhaps Lions Den is closed on Sunday for licencing reasons or something but I can see that's when Jimmy Cliff is playing so surely they'd still be after a headliner for then.

"Joining the Gorillaz 2018 UK exclusive headlining slot are South African trio Die Antwoord, ‘Rollin’ rap-rockers Limp Bizkit.

 

That makes it sound like those are the 3 headliners to me.

but we know that Limp-Talent-&-The-Bad-Back-Fred-To-Hide-Poor-Sales aren't on the Lion's Den, so they're not the three Lion's Den headliners.

It's certainly possible. I thought I heard someone mention on here that we're due a few more big names though.

Are we expecting a lineup today?  I thought it was supposed to be Fridays and Tuesdays but not seen anything teased today.


Edit:  They just posted on twitter that The Copper County (formerly Wild West) district line-up is landing at 5 pm today.

I'm certain The Specials were listed on the website as Town Centre last year and I can remember being pretty confused as to whether there were two main stages or not as MIA and Cypress Hill were both listed as being Lion's Den (last year was my first Boomtown). Think it's listed like that as they don't fit into the usual Trenchtown reggae/dub lineup. 

They'd surely be far too big for Town Centre, even if playing across from Gorillaz? Would be dangerously busy.
