Could Gorillaz headline? Don't doubt there size but having seen them live they're very much dependent on a lot of guests and animation work that seems a lot of effort to pull off.

They've seem to have made it work at previous festivals they've headlined. Just depends who's available at the time. 

I could see Gorillaz potentially happening. New documentary coming out. They've been active on social media more recently. Damon Albarn supposedly finished up with The Good, The Bad & The Queen, no apparent news on Blur coming back anytime soon.

Got an insider source that suggests Travis Scott, Bring Me The Horizon and Gorillaz are to headline R+L alongside Liam Gallagher.

Gorillaz is a strange name to be throwing in there. Feels like it’s very leftfield but I can see it working. I’d rather have Blur though.

Liam Gallagher tends to not do sets longer than 1 hour and 10 minutes so I think he could be co-headlining with another indie band like catfish. I reckon we could be in for another 5 headliner year.

Liam Gallagher / Catfish

Stormzy

Travis Scott / Bring me the horizon 

Two albums plus Oasis classics, if asked to fill a 90 minute slot he will.

A lot of people seem convinced that Travis and BMTH will co-headline together. I'm a bit out of the loop so is there anything suggestive that this will happen?

Gorillaz. Unexpected, I know. What about the unexpected booking of Fall Out Boy in 2018, no one would've guessed that. Post Malone this year, no one thought he'd come back so soon. Past couple years, R+L have thrown some curveballs. And Gorillaz is this years. Wait until the announcement.

There was meant to be an announcement of all 4 headliners at once in January. With some other names, sort of the same as it was announced for this years event.

This is way more shocking than either of those. FoB was only surprising due to how soon it was after 2016 and Post Malone everyone could tell would be coming back - he was probably signed there and then. Gorillaz are far far far more surprising and I would love to see it personally. Don't think anyone really cares about them that goes to R&L though...

 

EDIT: and where is this source from - any more details as you literally have 2 posts

Gorillaz put on a great show, I would much prefer that to Biffy so soon again (although wouldn't be disappointed with that either) - not sure whether the RnL demographic thinks the same though?

What could a Gorillaz day main stage look like, with the abundance of artists they work with?

i mean always worth asking for a source right

It’s actually never worth asking for a source. That doesn’t validate what they’re saying because if they are lying then they could be lying again, and we can’t verify anything ourselves either. Plus, anyone with a good source who wants to keep receiving info doesn’t publicly identify their sources.

Where do you reckon The S.L.P. would play? I was thinking 4th down Main or subbing R1. 

I'd have thought that as Kasabian were back on tour that the S.L.P. project would be on hold until the end of their current album cycle.

Though for staging, I reckon headlining one of the smaller stages might be a better fit.

Were there indications of Gorillaz touring next year?

Not that I'd say no - I saw them at Lollapalooza Paris last year and thought they were very good.

Thoughts?

Also, dua lipa has announced a europe tour for early summer, including 2 nights at the o2 - do we reckon we could see her make a return to R&L?

I'd be happy with this but are AM even touring? Cardi B is shite and there is no other option really which is kinda bad. Jake Bugg should be higher definitely. Good runs on Saturday and Sunday for me but the Friday is barren. Think it would sell decently though.

There's rumours AM are in the studio for another LP but very little otherwise about when it might appear or any consequent tour dates.

cheers man, i’ll change it around and try and add some more acts too.  in terms of AM they seem to be back in the studio according to a few things on twitter/instagram - may not be 100% legit though. could possibly be an exclusive if they were booked? otherwise cant really think of any indie bands that are likely touring next year (other than the strokes) then foals and catfish which seem to be doing other festivals making r+l unlikely.

So if Travis/BMTH co-headline which way round we thinking it will go? Don't they swap order at different sites? I'd be hoping for BMTH last at Leeds.

i would prefer travis to close personally, just due to his set up. but both acts have insane production - so wouldn’t mind personally; but would rather travis. 

 

sorry for double post!

BMTH from Yorkshire though so (along with the fact I'm more into them) I'd rather they close out Leeds. But on the flip side, with Reading's legacy maybe they'd rather close out there?

Dunno.

I'd rather BMTH closing Leeds day though.

Catfish have nothing for next year. Definitely not ruled out yet and they did mid-summer festivals last year so no real indication of what they will be doing. Hopefully a year off and then come back next year to headline it perhaps?

Where would the Black Keys place? Announced a may US festival so definitely could be around?
