Comes from a pretty faultless source. I suppose you could say (horses mouth). But can't really say anymore than that. Take it as you will. 

I believe you man, just seems a strange one. Unless @lobo is right and The Park is being expanded. 

Who knows. Could be my first Park headliner so actually works for me.

I’d take Hot Chip as my Saturday night headliner. Never seen a headliner at the Park and that’d be a pretty fantastic first one.

I don't think they've ever played The Park have they? Maybe they just want to try somewhere new rather than repeat themselves.

Oh right we've got Hot Chip headlining The Park now have we? Well I'll take that, never seen a Park headliner and my two pals who are as big Chipheads as I am both took a year off in 2015 so they'd both be made up with it.

Yeah they’ve pretty much played every realistic slot they could so guess it makes sense for them to do the Park if they’re wanting to stick to night time/headliner slots.

It's possible they just really dig the Park as well. I've seen Joe, Sarah, Alexis and Al in Park venues both doing various side projects and just cutting loose on a number of occasions.

No they haven’t so you could be right. 

Pretty sure Joe Goddard did his thing there in 2017. 

Maybe they just want a change, if the rumour holds true then it’s a great Saturday night right there.

I was very much #TeamMacca when the Saturday night McCartney vs Hot Chip debate was raging a few weeks back but with him out the picture I'd be delighted with Hot Chip on the Park as my  headliner

I don’t think Hot Chip are nearly as big as they once were.

Agreed.

Their WH set was half full if that.   They were barely selling out academies on their last tour.

They'd be a great Park headliner - it'll be busy but no need for an upgrade.

For me it would be Tame Impala Friday, Killers Saturday and Cure Sunday. 

If you need help getting tickets then as I already got some would be able to help you out?

Not even sure I’m doing the resale at the moment - still up in the air. Cheers for the kind offer though.

Were they ever actually properly big?

They're not much smaller than they've always been, and the West Holts set was well attended. Nothing spectacular but certainly not one of the thinner WH headline crowds I've seen. They headlined Green Man and Festival No 6 on the last tour, which is round about the level they've been for about a decade.

They’re listed above Primal Scream and Jon Hopkins at the Chems’ All Points East day. They seem to be at the same level as always, I agree with Lawn.

I don’t think they’ve been shunted down a stage at all - I don’t wanna put words in his mouth but Neil seemed to suggest there was an offer there for WH. They are genuinely the type of band that could and would say “we want to play the Park this time”.

it's what I heard.

Like you I think it's quite possible they might have other offers they might prefer.

Hot chip headlining a reimagined Park Stage with a bigger sound system and screens is fantasy territory for me.

Not sure if sound or staging restrictions make that likely? Be overjoyed if that’s in the cards

That is interesting. I wouldn’t predict Chems on Saturday now, as a knock-on effect. My prediction is in tatters.

Quite fancying seeing The Killers now, if I go.

With The Streets clashing with Wu-Tang? That seems like an odd match too

I don't agree. They're from the same broad genre but fairly distant nonetheless. It's like saying it'd be odd if The Wombats played at the same time as The Cure.

Saturday - Killers, The Streets, Wu Tang, Hot Chip....

Wu Tang for me IF they will all be there.

Or Orbital.

Still hoping for Aphex Twin to pop up and headline somewhere.

I guess, but considering how much less rap there will be at the fest (compared to the dancier stuff which you can find elsewhere too) I'd have though you'd wanna split the hip-hop up more. I have no idea if this is actually something they would consider tbh though, really I just can't get my prediction to fit together anymore when I swap Chems and Streets

The Streets could sub the Pyramid.

 Stormzy, Childish Gambino

The Killers, Liam Gallagher

The Cure, The Streets

That still seems like a stupidly high booking to me, especially given the other options available (Vampire Weekend, Janet Jackson, The Strokes etc.) but I guess it could happen.

Think I'm gonna have to go back to the drawing board ffs
