It would look out of place.

I think they're always gonna try and book a rap/hip hop headliner for the foreseeable future. If Dave is around next year with a new album (don't think that'll be till 2022 but could be sooner) then I think he'll at least coheadline. I also really think Travis Scott will headline next year if he's available.

Then I’d replace Kasabian or MCR with Travis Scott.

Lewis Capaldi will never sell out 1 Wembley Stadium show, let alone the amount Ed Sheeran did. Not just because I personally don't think his music is any good at all, but because he just isn't as big. Simple as

Like others have said, R&L just isn't the place for him, there are many many other acts/bands coming through that will probably be warranting a headline slot in the next 10 years

Lewis Capaldi played Truck Festival as 3rd below Wolf Alice and Nothing but Thieves, and I'm surprised I actually managed to go without seeing it. Think I was watching Anteros on one of the lower stages, but I don't fully remember.

Certainly, I'm aware he's become a huge deal and huger still since that slot in July of last year, but I would argue he'd need to release music in another direction to be in the mix for this place. Which is not to say there's some inspiration - on Spotify, I regularly get an advert for a playlist he did for Renault that features some R&L headline types. But I think its in too far away a direction.

Judging how big Lewis Capaldi will be in the future based on his ( quite excellent btw ) performance on his debut album is madness, especially since he's every bit as big at this point as Ed Sheeran was at this point in his first album run.

Not that this has anything to do with whether R&L should book him of course. They shouldn't.

For the same reason that Ed Sheeran hasn’t and will never headline Reading and Leeds, Lewis Capaldi isn’t gonna either. I know it’s moved towards booking more mainstream and chart dominant acts overt the last couple of years, but I don’t see them going down the whole solo sad lad route any time soon. It’s really not their vibe and their are tons of other festivals those acts are better suited to. 

"Solo sad lad" haha such an accurate description your right though Icant see it ever happening at Leeds and Im personally thankful it wont. Each to ones own and all that but that kind of bland whingey, acoustic ballad style simply is not suited to Reading And Leeds. Last 10 years Ive been going i do notice the line up changing of coarse but not to that extent. Leeds always retains its alternative core style and cant see acts like them ever getting the top spot. The likes of Ed Sheeran, Gavin James etc just remind me of that knobhead that can barely play a guitar whipping out an acoustic guitar at a house party at the end of the night for attention 😂

Will be a few more bigger acts. Wolf Alice will likely be as big as they get.

Looking at the clashfinder if Declan McKenna and Two door clash I will riot

I mean it's complete guesswork since we don't have a full list of bands and placements.

Unrelated but looking back at the early pages of this thread 2/3 headliners had been predicted by 24/03/18 (and who would’ve predicted RATM). Is it me or is this forum getting too good at this?

Until Dan told us, did anyone actually get the correct trio?

Someone must have predicted the correct trio after the Rage reunion was announced, considering so many users here make so many predictions (myself included) and we already knew LG was headlining by then.

To be fair, we didn’t really predict two out of three by 24/3/18.

Stormzy and Liam Gallagher were two of about 25 names predicted. With such a scattergun approach, we should be ashamed of only getting two, haha.

Pros and cons for both imo. Performance wise I prefer Skepta. He always puts on a banger filled set that gets the crowd going. I find Dave more story telling (which he is obvs) and less of a festival crowd type act. Then again, I’ve only seen him in 2017 so maybe can’t comment.

I think to the masses and general public at this point Dave is the better booking purely as skepta is always around. I think right now Skepta is around a sub headliner and Dave is around a strong 3rd down main. One more big hit or album on the way and he’s easily bordering on headline status though.

george ezra would be an amazing headliner for the record. saw him in manchester and he’s absolutely sensational. such a good laugh. capaldi would be shite, saw him at tramlines and it was 45 mins of ballads

I've only heard a few capaldi singles, but it still completely baffles me how different he is to his music. If only his music sounded half as fun

Also, skepta vs dave, I'd say skepta would be the better booking right now because he has so many bangers (enough to fill an hour easily), was supposed to play a couple years back and Dave played last year so it wouldn't be all that exciting imo.

Saw him at Latitude last year and was a very fun headline set. Doubt he'd be suitable for Reading although I will admit he is a great live performer.
