Conversations been going on for a while, but I just simply cannot accept that catfish, Ezra and stormzy will headline. SURELY they know that wouldn’t sell tickets.

Don’t say Fleetwood Mac, be realistic. 

Not many good acts touring or doing festivals this summer.

Think Catfish would be a perfect headliner for TRNSMT, young act with a big following and genuine live chops. Ezra is a great live act but lacks the excitement factor but he'll sell tickets. Strokes are still big enough to headline but I think Stormzy would sell better, ideally you'd want an older established act with a combo of catfish and stormzy and I imagine Muse would be the biggest seller but doesn't look like that's happening. Gerry would sell tickets but surely can't be a stand alone headliner

Florence alongside 2 of stormzy, Ezra, catfish would have had a better balance I reckon. A previous Glastonbury headliner, one from this year and one for the future.

I know it won’t happen but I would have liked the Friday to be Sleaford Mods into Young Fathers with the later finish that Radiohead got.

If they do  go with the 3 younger acts they might shore up the undercard with older types which might not Work.

Im thinking 3 along the lines James, ocs, doves, Manics, cast.

Could Chic sub Ezra ?

Is that in order? Because MGMT Should be headlining and GVF shouldn't be that far down.

Some sort of order, MGMT haven't been around for a while on the festival circuit and their last album didn't perform amazingly. I couldn't justify putting them above a mercury prize winner (Wolf Alice) and one of the biggest indie rock acts in Britain (Catfish). also I've put Greta Van Fleet down that low judging by where they were placed on the Download 2018 Line Up (very low down) and that both Rival Sons and Kaleo are more established acts and I couldn't put them at the bottom of the line up.

I wish! But their stage show for this upcoming stadium tour looks huge and they never play three nights in a row, unfortunately.

Yeah looking forward to seeing then in Manchester.

Yeah may as well just have them headline all 3 nights to be honest.

I don't see the problem with having Catfish/Ezra/someone else, even if they don't sell out they are both much cheaper acts than like Arctics or Killers or Queen from this year so they would probably have a similar return really. The undercard for them would also be cheaper probably.

It would sell plenty tickets, relax. Who would you have booked instead that's realistic?

I don't think Florence has sold out her 2 Edinburgh gigs which must be like 10k total so doubt shed be a better option.

Rightly or wrongly I’m thinking that means they’ll be at a Scottish festival announcing soon, so TRNSMT seems the most likely option. Not sure what headliner they’d be an obvious undercard act for though

Well they won’t be close to being an undercard, that’s for sure.

I don't believe they're at Trnsmt. Though there's a few of the undercard I can't remember/didn't get to, so it isn't impossible. I like them though so think I'd have been aware

Why do people keep suggesting artists that are playing Edinburgh or Glasgow Summer Sessions for 🤦🏻‍♂️

How about the Foo Fighters? 

Playing Glasgow summer sessions so they are ruled out.
