No one is subbing Slipknot, if they're playing, they're headlining outright.

That sentence makes no sense.

I definitely heard a few Slipknot songs played between bands at Reading, would not be shocked if they headlined it since they've already done Download. Arena tour early next year definitely has me thinking it's happening, it's pretty much the exact same time 1975 did theirs this year. And on the back of a Number One album I think it would be a great booking.

Slipknot / Stormzy / Green Day

I reckon they save Eilish for 2021 on a new album.

We know what he means lol.

If Reading are ever going to put Slipknot back on the top then off of a number 1 album is the best place to start as its very rare for a metal band to have that.....especially in this day and age where people actually need to make a point buying/downloading etc.

I don't see it being Green Day, there are more hip hop and rap options out there that will sell quickly also that will connect with what they will put on the undergrad more so.

I still stand by Stormzy being a ridiculous booking to headline, I've nothing generally against the bloke but he's got one bloody album, no 2nd one announced, no single for it as far as I know, no major tours even. I'm just saying like, bar coming across humble and wanting to make a difference...obviously talking about his background etc, what has he done?

Stormzy had another new single out, what, two months ago? Which would probably be the second for a new album if you count Vossi Bop but there's no guarantee either would be on it. I absolutely think he'll announce an album for 2020 before the end of the year, people thought Glastonbury booked him to headline too early and he smashed it, don't see how booking him to headline R&L on album two would be out of the question.

He headlined Glasto and, in a lot of people's eyes, absolutely smashed it. That's worth something. He's definitely worth considering to headline, although he wouldn't necessarily be my first choice.

I reckon she's back next year, it seems a no-brainer for both parties.  And if she does come back she'll be headlining outright.  See this as similar to Post Malone, after his big crowd last year they struck while the iron was hot and got him back the following year cos it was the right thing for both parties.  As well as being a ticket shifter there would be a lot of kudos for the festival in booking its youngest ever headliner and a solo female headliner.  It just seems to add up - in fact the only thing I see stopping it is if she (or more accurately her management) prices herself out of it.

Stormzy will drop a new album out of nowhere before the end of the year I reckon. He alluded to it on I wanna say Graham Norton a few months back.

I wouldn't even know that was a single not on his album. I thought it was too early, I still think it was too early. As I say, nothing against him personally but I kind of wanted to watch it back at home and think shit I should have checked it out. It's definitely one of the poorest headline bookings I've known Glastonbury to make, just for the record too....I was a fan of Ed Sheehan, thought it was a great booking but on the night I thought him subbing and Biffy Clyro having the longer set would have been a better night.

Post Malone pulled the biggest headliner crowd I’ve ever seen at Leeds and I’m certain that Stormzy would match it if he was booked. That’s why he should headline.

Nothing to suggest it’s happening but is there any stock Stormzy might try and do his own show? I definitely think it’s possible - although it might be seen as in direct competition with Wireless so would probably have to be at a different time in the summer.

Especially with a new album I reckon Stormzy could pull off a big gig.

EDIT: Merkyfest?

Not a fan of Stormzy but it's beyond question now if he's headline sized or not.

It's all about pre 2011 for biggest headline sized crowds, Leeds used to sell out every year.

We'll agree to disagree.

I’ve gone every year since 2010. 

Stormzy is 100% a headliner after Glastonbury.

There is no way two door cinema club are headline the radio 1 stage. I reckon they will sub. I think nothing but thives are radio 1 stage headliners.

Could see Stormzy headline and equally could see Slipknot headline but I think with the direction Reading are moving in, Slipknot would be a co-headliner with another act for diversity.

Not sure what people see in Two Door to think they’re worthy of a big slot. I like them but their UK arena tour is hardly selling well and their latest album was average at best.

I don’t know how many times I have to say it but if Slipknot get booked for R&L they headline outright. They are not going to co-headline.

Sounds strange to say it but Reading seems to be moving in a direction where Slipknot wouldn't be booked anymore.

To be honest Slipknot would be a very welcome booking. Fall Out Boy last year aside (for all the wrong reasons) when was the last time the festival booked a headliner which made people think "I wouldn't have expected them to headline Reading and Leeds"? The Cure in 2012?

See your point but there was plenty of Slipknot posters around the arena as well as people in Slipknot shirts. I don’t really like their music at all but think they’d still be a superbly good booking. However the reaction to it on social media etc would be very funny to see.

I really like Slipknot, but I agree with Corey Taylor, they don't want to share a lineup with the Foo Fighters anymore because they don't appeal to the same audience anymore. I know plenty of fans like both but Reading suits the Foo Fighters but not sure Slipknot do anymore.

What a year to debut!

Don't buy, not on the year of an all round fairly weak set of Glastonbury headliners.

I'd agree they would be.
