Close, it was PS 2012. But I also reckon it would be a bit soonish... Or that new album is actually happening soon and some people had a listen and liked it...?

Yes you are correct, it was in 2012

Lana Del Rey has two great new songs out, album coming up. Could be a great name for next year, or would her gig this year in Barcelona rule her out (or even make her more likely)? Otherwise she would be great for just Porto.

The Strokes sound like an option?

Dunno, haven't heard about them touring again? The Voidz are on the road with new album, but were at Primavera in 2015.

The Strokes, Lana Del Rey, Vampire Weekend, Cat Power, maybe Kanye or Kids See Ghosts....

Saw Lana this summer, left after 20 mins. If you're a fan you may like her, but if you just like a couple of her songs it's the most boring concert ever.

A new album is planned for 2019.

Could this be the reason Best Kept Secret has moved back to Primavera weekend?

Smith was a bit vague about whether he would be able to quickly produce a new album that he would be satisfied with. But he surely was inspired. Or have I missed some news?

Had the same thought about Best Kept Secret, makes a lot of sense. Maybe share Vampire Weekend as well. 

Primavera usually announces the complete line-up at once, so may take a while before we know The Cure will be at PS, while BKS May announce them soon?

I reckon they might have moved dates for The Strokes but yeah, could well be The Cure. Must be a strong headliner if that's why they've moved weekends.

For The Strokes at APE, I suppose you mean? Can't see them being back at Primavera so soon but two events in one weekend where they haven't played makes sense.

I figured they could do all three given it's over 4 days. I suppose Primavera might not want to book them again without new material but I imagine they'd sell a lot of tickets.

20 festivals, mostly European for the Cure.

I'd take a guess at 

PS (Spain) BKS (Netherlands), Northside (Denmark) Glastonbury (England) Hurricane + Southside (Germany) Rock Werchter (Belgium) Opener (Poland) Nos Alive (Portugal) InMusic (Croatia) Les Vieilles Charrues + Eurockeenes (France) , Positivus (Latvia) Paleo (Switzerland) Open Air St. Gallen (Austria) Way Out West (Sweden) Oya (Norway) Electric Picnic (Ireland)

They're announced for Ejekt and Firenze. Strongly rumoured for Glastonbury.

Pretty sure Mad Cool will get them but that doesn't mean PS won't, obviously.

I didn't realise it sold well last time, thought the opposite actually. Would seem quite lazy and disappointing for regulars regardless. I think Gabi will just do his usual and tell punters asking for them that they were shit before and that he doesn't want them to return.

Wouldn't surprise me to see BBK Live get them.

Was really surprised to see them doing that many dates due to Bob's fear of flying - something I've just read was made up so he didn't have to tour much, the lying bastard :-)

Them doing both BBK Live and Primavera last time is what made me think PS won't be afraid to share them. They definitely seem more like Mad Cool's cup of tea but yeah, either one.

And that's an awful lie to have to commit to. Going on camping holidays and all that. Serves him right. :P

Open Air St. Gallen is Switzerland, not Austria

Built To Spill have announced a couple of shows for the UK (May 1 Leeds, 3 London), Germany, Denmark and Austria (May 21).. pretty sure they'll head southwards after

I see they're doing Keep It Like A Secret in full. Definitely seems like something Primavera would be in for.

Robyn to headline next year, or is she big enough for it? New album and female (was a big focus this year).

If not headliner, I would love her to play the 03:00 spot at Ray-Ban.

Would say she's probably not big enough. Think Lana is a more likely shout for a female headliner. 

I reckon strokes and the cure would be more likely at mad cool or APE if they're doing that again

Chance the rapper has that new album coming out with Kanye so I'd guess he could be in the running. Neneh Cherry and grimes also have new albums out so think they could have big slots

A bunch of other names probably worth considering:

Jeff Tweedy solo set

Brockhampton

Bauhaus (new album out)

J Mascis solo (doing a solo tour in the winter)

Marianne Faithful (new album featuring nick cave, warren ellis seems like something for the auditorium)

L7 (new album, haven't played since reunion)

Kurt Vile (new album)

Julien Baker/Molly Burch/Phoebe Bridgers (releasing collaborative material)

Molly Burch? Don't you mean Lucy Dacus? Had to google Molly, but will give hear a listen if she's a bit alike.
