These predictions are mostly artists I wouldn't pay to see, it's a shame but if you look around most the major festivals this year it's exactly the same thing. 

Also people debating the pulling power of some of these artists, just because you don't like them doesn't mean everyone else is the same.

As for Noel Gallagher, I was at his gig at Edinburgh Castle (£60 a head) and it wasn't sold out. Granted it was a week night but you would have thought a gig in the city centre that Noel Gallagher was playing would sell no problem. 

The Killers have and will always be headliners. Shouldn't even be up for debate.

my predictions (wouldn’t be a massive fan of this lineup (also wouldn’t be surprised if chem brothers appeared (they have london, and manchester headline festivals, so would make sense to have a scottish date somewhere))

friday- STORMZY, the streets, gerry cinnamon, giggs slaves, loyle carner, kano, idles, lady leshurr, slowthai, ladybird

saturday- CATFISH, richard ashcroft, wolf alice, johnny marr, the amazons, dma’s, tom grennan, sam fender

sunday- GEORGE EZRA, (special guest) snow patrol, bastille, the vaccines, kodaline, razorlight, kate nash

Would definitely go the Friday and Sunday. Probably leave before Stormzy came on though. Desperate for The Streets to make an appearance.

Public Enemy would be an extraordinary booking, but their Gods of Rap thing at the Hydro probably rules them out.

Is anybody going to that gig by the way? I’m thinking if I’m not going for the full trnsmt weekend I’ll get myself a ticket, love a bit of Wu Tang Clan

Gerry Cinnamon / The View / DMAs / The Snuts / Vida

That would easy shift 50k tickets just out of Scottish sales alone. Why not just give the people what they want instead of this Doddie Ezra and Stormzy nonsense.

Aye! I am. Wu Tang, Public Enemy & De La Soul. Well worth the £80, if yer planning on going you best check cause I heard standing was sold out.

No doubt G Cinnamon is popular and with decent support he could probs play Summer Sessions or something n shift about 25/30k. That lineup at trnsmt would not easily shift 50k tho. To be honest I feel a lot of people are underestimating how many bands could easily sell out a day at trnsmt and there aren't many imo.

Gerry COULD headline but won't. If he was announced as a headliner, I wouldn't be surprised. I'd be delighted for the guy tbh. I'd also be avoiding it like the plague unless the undercard was exceptional.

There was hardly any bugger watching them at TRNSMT 2017. They are absolute tosh. 

Some crowd at T in 2012 when they weren't even announced. There was rumblings and every fucker turned up.

Set length is the biggest problem for Gerry headlining IMO. He literally only has 13 songs in his catalogue atm, 9 from the album plus discoland, kampfire vampfire, canter and fickle mcselfish. You’d need to add a handful of covers or new songs just to get to a 90 minute long set.

 

I could see him shifting 50,000 tickets right enough so it depends if DF would be happy to just have him headline for an hour and have more acts on the undercard.

I could too to be honest, there's a massive hype about him in Scotland at the moment among young and older people. Also that new Catfish song  sounds like a Razorlight B-side to me but they're bigger than the Strokes so what do I know.

Faithless don't exist; Prodigy couldn't.

I don't reckon Prodigy could sell 35,000 tickets in the much bigger and more accessible market of London.

Any idea how much they sold at Victorious? I know it's literqally the other end of the country so slightly different demographics (and Vic has bigger names on the second stage that might influence things too?)

Aphex Twin would be fucking amazing. Could imagine him doing T easy, if it was still going.

Yes, in the Slam Tent.

I think that it was just too many Scottish shows as he played the Hydro & AECC in April, then Biggest Weekend in May & also Electric Fields in August. But he's just announced a gig at the Playhouse which will be interesting to see
