If they booked Foos or AM instead of Fall Out Boy (I don't think I'll ever get my head around their decision to bump them up to headliners) that would have been a very solid trio of headliners.

If your aunt had bollocks she'd be yer uncle.

Not a chance of Tool showing up. Unless this is a meme that's gone over my head - Neutral Milk Hotel on Radio 1?

If Slipknot do play I see it being a once and done, so I hope they get the full 100 minute set they're currently touring with all bells and whistles rather than the 75 minutes co-headliners usually get. 

Couple of names I think have got to be considered: Guns N' Roses. Obviously contingent on their seemingly never-ending tour carrying on till next year, but they'd be a monstrous booking and their last UK shows were supposedly much improved. LN have the cash obviously.

Rumblings of new RHCP material has been circling since last year - nothing has surfaced yet but in 12 months time there could well be a new album on the horizon/released. Another big draw, and unlikely that their 'questionable' prior sets would be a factor. 

Half meme, half wishful thinking. Their set at Download was just insane and I'd love to experience it again. Wouldn't surprise me if they disappeared for over a decade once this new album is out though, it'd be very much in their nature to do such a thing.

I was actually thinking GNR. I'm sure ten years is enough time for Festival Republic to forgive Axl for all the fuckery he pulled in 2010 and apparently he's been turning up on time now. They've been playing three and a half hour sets too.

With the recent Spotify thing and them knocking Drake off the top spot on the iTunes charts, you never know, they might be turning the heads of normies.

They aren’t turning the heads of R&L’s main demographic.

Tool aren’t coming anywhere near R&L. Tbh neither are Slipknot, i’d love it but they aren’t. Next year has boring headliners written all over it.

Slipknot will happen soon. Next year seems like the prime year for them but even if that doesn't come to fruition, they're such a high-profile band now and they aren't declining in popularity in the near future and it'll happen eventually. I'm really anything but a fan so I've no need to convince myself of it, that shit's just gotta happen.

I agree for sure and I think that next year looks like as good a time as any for it to happen. Their profile is massive right now because of the new album and it’s not as if they aren’t mainstream anyway; everybody knows who Slipknot are and anybody who goes to R&L who likes rock/metal music will know several of their songs. I think they’d go down just fine.

They won't have two indie headliners, I used to quite like catfish, but their last 2 albums sound just like the 1st, so I'm hoping they never headline unless they release something "new".

Would be 3 very good headliners from what's available next year - do think Foals would smash a full set, think they might end up at Glasto though

The father of Green Day touring musician Jason Freese has said in a now-removed interview on Instagram that his son is ready to go on a world tour again and next summer is likely.

If download do get Green Day, the pool of "Sunday rock headliners" looks quite small unless QOTSA or something make a comeback next summer. However, we are assuming that Green Day are even coming back themselves in 2020.

If they're out of choices it would be awesome to take a risk on Slipknot with BMTH subbing, The Strokes or something rather than do another KOL type booking (at the end of a huge touring cycle where they've played god knows how many UK festivals) like The Killers.

Would say there are 3 pop-punk bands that could all headline Download next year (Blink, Green Day, ADTR) which is kinda crazy though I doubt they'd get more than 1 of them.

Edit: On BMTH, I could see them headlining Slam Dunk and maybe a few of the smaller festivals like Y Not, Truck etc. if they're willing to take a risk from the usual indie headliners

Not 100% settled yet but probably going for something like this:

IDKHow > Twin Atlantic > Patent Pending > Dream State or the FR Secret Set > YMAS > Wombats > Royal Blood > 1975

Queen Zee > Against The Current > The Hunna > get pissed for three hours > Larkins > Night Riots > 21Pilots

Milk Teeth > Yungblud > The Faim > Enter Shikari > The Story So Far > Pit Secret Set > Frank Carter > ADTR > Foos > Last ten minutes of Bastille if I can be bothered

4pm looks like my designated food break every day.
