Ok the dude bitching earlier today made me laugh but this got me. Don't think it'll go down well anyway but here we go...

Biffy/BMTH // LG // Eminem

Subs: Migos / Courteeners / Gerry Cinammon don't know who is subbing who.

NME headliners Red Orange County and AJ Tracey, one TBC. 

Run the Jewels main stage. 

Main stage very low on guitar bands.

That's all I know for now. 

Literally nothing too exciting there for me lol

Love Biffy and BMTH but seen them before

LG and Eminem also (Reading 2017)

Also main stage very low on guitar bands scares me

If this is true it'll still be great as Reading always seems to be, but damn did I get my hopes up.

I believe the headliners but not the subs as I don’t think Migos isn’t big enough any more and Gerry cinnamon isn’t yet unless they’re subbing the co headline

Migos played just before The Strokes at Lollapalooza Paris last year and had a huge crowd so can see it being a possibility.

Has anyone ever seen The Reytons and if so let me know if they're half decent live- think they'll be on the lineup somewhere (obviously not main stage) the vocals give me an Alex Turner vibe phaha.

They’re a very shite version of arctics but a good laugh and generally get a good crows

R&l is literally becoming download right in front of some people’s eyes and too many people don’t complain and buy tickets anyway.

The same headliners every three years recycled and repackaged.

If Dan Wilcox is right then fuck that. I was excited at the prospect of rage, but I’ve got egg of my face for thinking R&L had actually turned a corner.

If you look at those acts and get excited, can I ask...is this your first festival? Or do you not give a shit about heavy act recycling and don’t really care if the same bands play year after year?

Second time at Reading for me, so yeah I’m in the former group

Wasn't a few pages back where it was said BMTH turned down headline slot?

This!

We got „It‘s RATM. BMTH turned down.“ and „It‘s BMTH. No RATM.“

You can‘t tell when he‘s trolling. Looking at past years, unbelievable info was true. I think it‘s RATM.

You mean that album that people hated because it wasn’t their usual style but as an album was genuinely really good? Agreed. 

I didn't hate it & thought it was good, no need to bite :).

Isn't their best album but its not bad in any shape or form, having seen them perform a few of the tracks off of it at TRNSMT they go down well enough but obviously WPSIAM and AM tracks go down a lot better, their setlist that day was a treat and they smashed it

Never said it was bad, i thought it was decent and a good change.

Boardmasters has just as strong of a top billing as R&L, if true. Maybe even stronger. Why wait this long to announce that..

Because no one wants to play R&L anymore. It really fucking feels like that.

MCR, Rage, Strokes, Travis Scott, Stormzy, Foals, Billie Eilish all playing shows this summer and R&L got none of them. This has to be something to be examined because if Dan is right Reading is struggling to put together lineups. 
 

This fest has gone to the dogs. But it seems that people will still buy tickets because they don’t mind the same bands every 2/3 years at this point.

I cannot anywhere see Migos subbing im sorry they were absolute dog piss last time

Eminem hmmm maybe hopefully Friday

Biffy/BMTH would be mental and I love Rex so that’s alright, I’m sure Run the Jewels will go off and Gerry should be alright 

idgas about the Courteeners I’ll see them if there’s no one else

But a lack of guitar bands is what gets me, that’s been the cornerstone of the festival and I feel like two or three a day on the MS is no where near enough

Hopefully other stages are loaded with them

TBC I reckon could be CATB or Blossoms Against Eminem

Reckon AJ Tracey Against Biffy BMTH

And Rex Against LG

also feel like Biffy will close Reading and Bring Me will close Leeds

Eminem headlining 3 times in 7 years.

Just gone through about 15-20 tragic pages, one minute everybody was talking about RATM, then BMTH turning down a headline slot, then chicken sandwiches (Probably the best moment of this forum for the past month) to BMTH co-headling and now everybody moaning about Eminem.

Dan’s put out such conflicting information that at this point it’s pointless getting excited/disappointed about anyone until the lineup is actually released. 
 

Couple of days ago it was definitely Stormzy and RATM with BMTH turning down a slot, now it’s definitely Biffy/BMTH and Eminem - which to believe? 
 

Working out which posts are truthful and which are a wind up is an exercise in futility at this point.

Exactly this!

Can't believe people take every post as gospel 😂 his tactic is and always has been to say every headliner that's in the running for it over a couple of weeks and then once it's released people will scan back to find the post he did with that lot headlining quote it and call him mystic meg

Rex Orange County has released a "pony" album since he last played, the bump up to headline NME isn't warranted. 

Migos' stock has plummeted since they were 3rd down on main stage, their last album was a travesty and their last performance was so sub par (only played at Leeds for what felt like 20mins)

I personally believe Dan wouldn't just drop all the info at once, why would he 2 weeks before the announcement when he has everyone on this thread panting? It must be hilarious for him. Wouldn't be surprised at all to see the info "adapt" over the course of the next week, like it has done so much already.

 

P.s Fuck you for mentioning Rage, Dan.😂😭 (No idea if emojis work on here now)
