purely hypothetical but what slot would KIDS SEE GHOSTS play if they were announced?

Headline. But you're more likely to see a ghost than see that happen.

What slot do we think Sam Fender will have if he's playing? I'd guess around 4th mainish

He's announcing a Ally Pally date today so I think he's a bit big for FR

It’s an arena tour, how the fuck has this suddenly happened after I saw him play to 400 at Fibbers in York (wasn’t even sold out) less than a year ago?!

 

I can see him being third down on main. Maybe R1 headline but after an arena tour they might want main stage.

Download announcement confirmed for 2pm tomorrow so could help you rule out a couple of bands.

People are gonna be so upset that Saxon, Whitesnake and Skid Row aren't gonna play R&L when Download is announced later.

An announcement of Biffy and Blink 182 could annoy a few people though.

I saw an article about earlier saying Blink, Biffy and SOAD were the headliners and thought that was poor but it turns out the article have just used someone’s prediction lmao.

i do reckon all 3 are a possibility though. Deffo SOAD surely

Blink 182 and SOAD are massive rumours.

Biffy have only seriously appeared since someone posted saying Copping posted a Jigsaw piece on instagram (but nobody else saw at and there's no evidence). Either way that would not be the greatest line up in the history of Download it has to be said. One band who played 3 years ago and haven't released or intended to release anything new for 15 years. One many people can't stand and drew a shit crowd last time they played and one who's new albums is utter shite. You could have two of those alongside Maiden and get away with it but not all three.

No blink means that they must seriously be in contention for R&L now.

I was thinking this, would seem strange for them to release an album and not do some festivals. California tour they toured Europe in June/July so thinking it'll be shows in August this time around. Think with no Tom that they may be a co-headliner with someone like BMTH.

Ah shit we're getting Blink aren't we?

Praying we can make the most of a bad situation and at least have them co-head with Foals or The Strokes maybe. Wishful thinking.

I agree with this. The boat has sailed for them to be able to headline things like Reading and Download outright now.

It could just be Travis doesn't want to spend months on boats to avoid flying so they are skipping Europe all together.

Blink are playing an acoustic show in Kingston next month in case anyone wants to see them.

Download have just announced KISS as a headliner and had Def Leppard this year, they aren't exactly the top rock acts of today.

Wait until there are indicative dates before fearing their return. People were saying all this junk last time about not doing Download CONFIRMING Reading and then they just did their own shows. I suspect same will happen again.

It’s not confirming anything but they are definitely a contender now. 
 

The lineup change makes them a questionable booking but if this was any other band - alarm bells would be ringing.

I'm not talking about Blink being a top rock act of the day. Not having Tom and seemingly getting a worse reception to each release isn't doing much for them.

They're not meant to book bands like Blink 182 that's not the point of Download. It's a festival for classic rock and metal fans as the headliners of the past few years have shown. Hence why the prospect of Blink was being baulked at by so many.
