So, who do you really want for 2018?

A good time for some lineup speculation I think now tickets are flying off the shelves. Who do you want to play? I’ll kick things off...

Alt J

Kendrick

Kylie

Orbital

Moderat

Ritchie Hawtin

Loyle Carner

Phoenix

Sohn

Heidi

Black Madonna

NERD, Bon Iver (heard he was rumoured for this year before he cancelled his tour), St Vincent, Four Tet, Jon Hopkins, Wiki, Noname (don’t know if she’ll be touring next summer but), Jlin, SOPHIE

Can see Friendly Fires getting a prominent slot on the lineup if they're coming back with a new album.

Massive Attack are probably in with a shout of headlining now that they seem to be having a repeat headliner every year, playing Mad Cool in Spain the month before.

I think the following are in with a shout: 

Florence and that fandangled contraption of hers

N*E*R*D

Justice

 

Personally I'd like to see some:

Wu Tang Clan

Raleigh Ritchie 

Tove Lo

Joey Bada$$

Banks

The hunna

Kaleo 

Sigrid 

Bleachers 

Keir

Oh my God it's the church! 

Shy Fx

The Streets (Dear Rob, if you're reading this!!!!) 

Pink (amazing at IOW2010) and could tie in nicely with the theme

And a little Big Willie wouldn't go amiss.

Thank you please

Some great shouts here... would love St Vincent for Thursday headliner, and Four Tet and Jon Hopkins would be ace.

Think Loyle Carner will definitely be back after having to cancel last year. The Horrors are probably in with a shout of playing before the headliner one night as well.

I heard last year that it was Bestival that offered the Streets money for a come back and now they're doing shows I could see them doing it

For the headliners: Depeche Mode, Morrissey & Kylie (would prefer Madonna but chose to be slightly realistic) 

David Byrne on the line up would be amazing too (headlining or otherwise)

Seem to be headlining IOW, unfortunately.

Could something like this work?

Primal Scream

Massive Attack
The Horrors

N*E*R*D
Loyle Carner

Kylie
Friendly Fires

Not sure if there's any one act in particular that jumps out as a major ticket-shifter, so probably not...

It would certainly get me to return after missing the last 2 years.

Maybe replace Primal Scream with somebody more interesting though.

With Bestival now occuring the week after Camp Bestival, do you think they will share a considerable number of acts?

they always did at the lower end of the bill, with a number of acts which might be regarded as RdB's 'friends', so I reckon that's likely to continue.

At the top end of the bill I expect them to be different. They're aimed at different audiences.

I reckon the Dub Pistols, DJ Yoda and Kitty, Daisy and Lewis are nailed on...

Primal Scream have played twice before - which might make them less likely.

Yeah, perhaps - although they do seem more willing to repeat acts nowadays... Thursday headliners are always especially difficult to predict, but I think they'd be a decent choice to kick things off.

Camp Bestival line-up has dropped - hopefully Besti is on the way with some repeat business (Orbital especially).
