How likely are any of these acts from appearing:

-Blink-182 (they said last year that they were playing the UK in summer 2020 but haven't said anything since. Could they be doing APE or their own summer tour?)

-lewis capaldi, lizzo, Halsey, Hayley Williams, dodie, tiny meat gang, Yungblud, Scotty Sire, scouting for girls, simple creatures, Busted, Limp Bizkit, Lil Nas x

 

 

I reckon YUNGBLUD could be in a 4th down slot and Hayley Williams could be there

It really wouldn't make a difference if Outbreak was closer to R&L given how much they make nearly every act an exclusive. The only festival they "share" with is 2000trees.

Also surprised that ETID haven't played since 2014. They used to play pretty much every other year but that was back when Mike Davies booked The Lock Up and it ran for 2 days and speaking to the Lock Up what the hell happened? The new booker got some good bands in 2015 and 2016 but it's kind of been downhill since then and it's abysmal this year.

Don't think they've had exclusive acts for a while. Would make a difference if it was closer so bands aren't flying home June and back in August aha.

I remember Dan P carter took over in 2014 but not sure how long that lasted, I thought he'd be able put on some stacked days given all his contacts and good rep.

I saw him but that’s not my thing, he was good but by that time my Dad was in prime embarrassment mode

Do you know if Daniel P Carter still has anything to do with the booking?

I'm sure I can remember him having some influence back in 2016/17

He still does, was clearly a bit pissed off about the soundcloud rappers that were obviously not his choice last year as he was tweeting out the line up for his stage every morning and referred to them as 'etc.'

Anyone remember the name of the guy who used to book the bands for the lock up stage back in the day? 
 

EDIT: Mike Davies, that was it!

I wish I had listened to Mura Masa before his set. Really into him now and am thinking about going to his Ally Pally show too.

Mura Masa was quality wasn’t he? I’d seen Postie twice and wasn’t fussed so went with Mura Masa only knowing a couple songs but hearing he put on a sick show. Deffo didn’t disappoint! But to be absolutely fair, it was my birthday that day and I don’t remember much from that specific day. Whatever happened that set though converted me into a Mura masa fan lmao.

wasnt the biggest fan of the new album though I must say. The ones with Slowthai and Claire were the only ones I really liked!

I reckon Lewis Capaldi special guest on the Sunday between Slowthai and Tom Grennan

Way too big. If Gerry is a sub at Reading Lewis is a headliner / coheadliner.

Newbie here, being 20 I'm not as pleased with this line up as I was last years however I still think this years line up is amazing and will be going to reading for a 3rd time (tbh the music is 25% of the experience anyway).

When do we usually get another line up drop - I do like this year but feel like I need a couple more good names to make it feel really worth it

and do we really get big names in the second lineup drop?

Hoping we might see Mollie Collins in the Dance Tent in the next announcement! She liked my tweet, and didn’t say no, where as I tweeted her pretty much the same last year and she replied saying she wasn’t playing! Fingers crossed as she’s a top DnB DJ!

He plays a lot of those rappers on his show so he must have a hand in booking some of them.

Pretty sure he still does. He's always done the pit since it first started in 2013 where it was one day and when the Radio 1 Punk show ended Mike Davies stopped booking The Lock Up and it went to one day and The Pit to two from 2015 onwards.

Trapped Under Ice is an EU exclusive and Incendiary and All Out War are both UK exlcusives so they are still doing them for the bigger bands, no point in the smaller ones since they're not gonna be at any other festival. I'm convinced that them at 2000trees have some sort of deal/relationship going on as one Outbreaker headliner has always played there from 2018 onwards and no other festival. I mean, Turnstile only recently played Slam Dunk recently because of Outbreak. I remember hearing that Turnstile were booked to play one year (2016 I think) but Outbreak kicked up a fuss with them so they pulled out (don't know if this is entirely true or how it went down). I really don't think they'd be so keen with them sharing acts with another festival in Yorkshire.

It says in the press release this is the last show tba.

Omg all those fans who brought tickets for the 1st show on sat 20th thinking it would be THE 1st show in the UK.... until they announced Thurs 18th.  And now Tues 16th.  Wtf !  Twickets will be bouncing again.  More planning needed guys please.  All of us here in Ireland brought MK tickets and some even booked flights/ ferries. And then they announced Dublin

Sounds like clever management to me

I am hoping a run of Slowthai / Run the Jewels / IDLES / Rage is possible - what do we think?
