It's pretty much a guarantee that Bring Me are doing it at this point. Holding out on a full announcement as they are trying to get MCR or Rage booked? Unlikely, but a man can dream.

It looks like Rage aren't playing in Europe until 2021.

Is it? 

There's no rumours that they're doing it, in spite of many a prediction that includes 'em. The people who have claimed to have had reliable info that Bring Me The Horizon were headlining also didn't include Liam Gallagher in their set of headliners. 

Thirty Seconds to Mars played European dates across August/September in 2018 and I can see Bring Me The Horizon doing the same, maybe doing a run of UK shows after. I draw that comparison a) because their appearance (sub) seemed an inevitable, but never happened, and b) I feel they're both of similar standing - neither wanting anything but the top, but perhaps the festival not quite agreeing. 

I wouldn't be surprised if they were announced but I don't think it's a lock by any means. Especially when Slipknot are around in August too, which I'd wager would be a much better booking.

Slipknot w BMTH subbing would be mega.

Bugger, didn't know that! Damn shame.

On the topic of Bring Me, it's just more of a gut feeling than anything, coupled with them dropping a festival date in August and (apparently) them themselves hinting at it in a stream or something? The lack of UK amo shows just makes me think that they'll end that cycle with a bang, and Reading + Leeds seems to be the best place. Can't personally see another full UK tour for that cycle. A headline slot just seems inevitable given how they've worked their way up the line up over the years. Now or never as a previous poster said.

More than anything though, it might just be me WANTING to see them headline and looking into everything as a sign that they'll headline though, granted ?

Much as I'm not a big Slipknot fan, if they did do it next year, could see Bring Me subbing, similar to how Royal Blood subbed The 1975 this year. No chance of Slipknot co-headlining with them, but that booking would probably suit both parties.

At this point in time, Dua Lipa subbing Slipknot would not surprise me in the slightest truth be told.

No way, that is way too disparate.

Absolutely it is, and don't get me wrong, can't see it happening realistically and I don't think it will, it's just with how bonkers the festival seems to be with booking certain acts, it wouldn't surprise me if it did happen. Thought back in 2018 Sum 41 > Dua Lipa was a bit strange, even Travis Scott > Fall Out Boy too. Didn't Korn play before someone completely different one year, or vice versa as well?

Would be pretty damn amusing though.

I'm hoping that you're all going to be unwrapping the Origin of Muse boxset on Christmas morning, and it gives them the final push needed to do an Origin of Muse tour. Performing songs from Showbiz, Origin of Symmetry and Absolution. If they wanted to cash in during the break between albums then I'm confident there's an army of disillusioned Muse fans who'd go for it. Probably better suited to a one-off gig at Finsbury Park rather than R&L. 

I think I'd prefer it somewhere smaller scale than Finsbury. Maybe a Brixton Academy or Kentish Town Forum. IMO that would feel a bit more special. But equally that's basically just my personal hopes at wish fulfilment after I missed out on the by request gig ahead of their last R&L slot in 2017.

I don't know how well the Origin deep cuts went down at Reading 2011. I remember I was there and got thrown about the moshpit during New Born and Bliss, and that Space Dementia and Micro Cuts seemed to go down very well. But equally, I'm not sure what the casuals made of some of Origin's weirder bits.

I honestly thought it would just be some US election 2020 shows and out, so the fact they're even considering beyond that is something.

Muse in an environment like that would be absolutely insane!

Shepherd's Bush Empire in 2013 was awesome. Probably the best Knights of Cydonia I've seen of theirs. So I would be way more excited for a return to that scale than another arena/stadium run.

Not sure if it's been suggested already, but can really see Bullet For My Valentine being there one of the days after the Reading secret set. A headline slot on The Pit or a nice spot on the Main Stage in a run up to Bring Me The Horizon/Slipknot would work nicely.

If BMTH do co-headline they would fit into the main stage quite well that day, 4th down main?

This would be fun: 

Travis Scott + Bring Me The Horizon / Wolf Alice / Architects / Bullet For My Valentine / Denzel Curry / Ghostemane / Knocked Loose / Dream State 

Travis would have the best pits of the lot.

Liam headlining latitude next year as well. Reading is really going to have to get its act together if it's only getting the same headliners as far smaller festivals imo.

On the other hand, this does make me think Liam may be the money saving headliner. Hopefully means some other fairly large bookings.

 

Edit: Nothing against Liam by the way, personally really enjoy his music. It just feels very safe and would appreciate something a bit different.

Yeah, heard it on the radio about 30 mins ago. As someone who goes to both every year I'm fairly disappointed as I always liked the fact they rarely share many acts.

not sure it's true.

Supposedly it's what Radio X says, but from digging in secret sources it seems to be the case that no one has had a early press release for Latitude so I'm not sure where they've got that info from.

Yeah, it's rare they share acts many at all let alone a headliner. First time that's ever happened, if it's true.

Just to confirm, it wasn't Radio X itself. It was a Barclaycard advert on Radio X just before 8. I think you can rewind on their radio player so I'll see if I can find it again to confirm!

then that's probably Barclaycard winging it.
