Lineup 2020

Recommended Posts

Surely Travis Scott is a front runner to headline this? New album, festival tour scheduled for next year - He played wireless in 2019 so it’s unlikely he’l be back there.

I think he could be big enough to headline outright as well.

Yeah he is a front runner. Now new stuff is likely to be out in time, he's as much a given as Kendrick Lamar returning after his sub slot.

Post and Kendrick both had what would be called coheadline slots though so I don't get why anyone would be hung up on whether he does it alone or with someone headlining before him.

With Coachella and Lolla shows in the pipeline I imagine they will get him doing some European lolla shows too. Those tend to be around the time of R&L so I think he is very much in the running to come back.

I guess he could always come back as a coheadline - I’m not saying he wouldn’t coheadline but I wouldn’t be surprised at seeing him headlining outright. 
 

He’s already painting himself to be the ‘hot’ booking of 2020 with a lot of festivals supposedly having him lined up to play. Bodes well for R&L as I’m not sure what UK festivals could effectively ‘steal him’ from them.

Yeah I'm saying that it's the same thing either way - doesn't mean he's being underpinned. He's one of the biggest stars in music at the moment and pretty much a god with R+L age group. You don't have to think about what Coachella, Lollapalooza, other UK festivals are doing because R+L will want him and they'll scoop him up.

Hey guys, aware that being a new guy this might come across as trolling, but I have it on excellent authority that R&L have booked The Strokes, Stormzy, Travis Scott and Bring Me the Horizon to headline the festival next year. I'd rather not share my source as I don't want to get them into trouble, but it's a very close friend who I know wouldn't relay false info. Just thought I'd pass it on, understand scepticism but I am certain that those are the headliners.

That’s be 4/4 headliners for me if true so I’m hoping it isn’t those 4 as it would most likely mean me having to go for the full weekend again.

Decent set to be honest. Two hiphop/grime headliners won’t raise eyebrows with reading’s current audience - but it will definitely sell well.

Who is coheadlining because there is a strong argument that Stormzy and Travis have the chops to headline outright.

Don't know anything about who is coheadlining with who, although you've got to think that Bring Me the Horizon would be one of the coheadliners.

Yep I assume so.

Makes sense, as they are still touring next summer, have only played a couple of UK shows since releasing the new album. A big co-headline show to finish that album cycle.

I reckon they’ll do one with it being so close to Glasto. Either way, I’m not a massive fan of Kasabian but you bet I’ll be trying to get a ticket to the dark fruits event of the year lmao.

I suggested a few pages ago a Travis/BMTH coheadline, I think those two seem like the obvious pairing if this info is correct. 
 

But then again this is the festival that regards Kendrick and PATD! on the same level so all bets are off there.

I think people have been saying that one for a while, because it follows a pattern. @SomeoneListeningIn has said it at some point but I don't know whether that was for 2020 or 2027.

Anyway, just because they'd be on the same day doesn't mean the fest considers them the same size. I think - much like Kendrick - Travis Scott would be the biggest headliner there and then the one randomly boosted into a headline spot is scheduled to go on before.

BMTH have just been announced for Highfield festival in Germany in August the weekend before R&L so it's starting to look more and more likely they'll be at R&L as I'm not sure what other festival would book them.

It’s looking likely. 

I think the co-headliners will either be BMTH + Travis or Travis + Stormzy but I think the former is more likely.
