It is slightly concerning to me that 2018 at least had an announcement for the announcement before the end of the year, even if it was another month and a half before the actual announcement. They seem hesitant to commit to announcing anything, as if nothing big is confirmed.

Or they’re still tryna get big bands

I believe that was the year after. 

 

My main memory from 2008 is a rumour going round the entire campsite that the band on the bill for the BBC Introducing stage called 'The FF'ers' were actually the Foo Fighters coming to do a secret mini set. Mass disappointment ensued when there really was just a band call The FF'ers and they were booed and bottled off stage. Hilarious at the time, but quite harsh really (though maybe a bit of a poor choice of band name). 

Wouldn't happen these days with things like smartphones and being easily able to look things up, but I suppose that would've been one of the last few years where word of mouth at the site is all you had! 

I think I remember that story. That was back in the day I was first getting into music and I remember NME hyping it up on the site beforehand saying it might be a sign of a secret Foos set, then everyone being pretty narked when it wasn't. I think they'd done a secret set when they headlined V the year before, so I guess it wasn't without merit, but equally I think they'd only just done Wembley, so maybe it was a bit too soon.

In retrospect that would've been a great first gig experience to go to. But hey ho - much as I imagine Reading has a fair share of 15 year olds, I doubt I would've convinced anyone to go at that time.

Seems like they’re leaving it very late if they’re still trying to get some big acts.

As in and MCR or AC/DC, who need to sell out their own shows or release new music first

AC/DC aren’t turning up at R&L. We need an announcement because this thread has gotten really stupid recently.

The dreaming of MCR has gone beyond tedious and into hilarious. There's a better chance of me rocking to the main stage for 90 minutes just chugging off to porn.

No reason to doubt it but just wondering where the BMTH/Travis rumour has come from as everyone seems to be suggesting it. 

Kylie leaked the lineup.

Are there any users who have shared insider info before who are yet to say something or have said something?

Yeah i thought he was there last year but never bothered checking, that is a bit of a weird choice to have him two years in a row but they'll no doubt have a small pool of headliners and looking at the announcement on twitter nobody seems to care he's there again they're just asking for Scooter 

Yeah i'm genuinely shocked like one person seems to care it was like 1 complaint for every 20 comments.

Yeah I went to that gig and either Matt or Dom said they weren't planning a show for ages. But Matt Bellamy said the other day they might do a Royal Albert Hall show in 2020 as one of their only gigs of what is otherwise intended to be a quiet year. So they're likelier to do fests in 2021, but then I didn't think they'd do R&L given they only played it 3 years ago.

Origin of Muse special I hope :)

I’ve seen Dua Lipa.

She wasn’t that good

I've seen her a few times too, and I agree... But her performance standards have vastly improved since the last shows she done... She has listened to the criticism she received and worked upon that. For example watch her recent performance at the MTV EMA's

No it doesn’t thank god. It means the exact opposite. SW4 acts don’t normally have much crossover with Reading either
