that Saturday looks so sick wtf whyyyyyy did I book other things to do that day :(  the Sunday looks a lot rosier with the addition of James Blake too, even though that new album was crap.

Pissing me off how the ‘logo’ for C&TQ makes it look like she’s cancelled though, don’t know why anyone would sign off on that.

Wonder if this will keep growing until its considered one of the "big UK festivals"?  I can see AEG having this as a festival for younger people, and BST for older people

won't happen, it's limited by the size of the site.

In terms of the line up it’s already probably in the third tier (assuming Glasto is in a league of its own and then R&L and TRNSMT are the next rung down).

The decent-but-not-great transport links and the size of the site will almost certainly limit it ever going any bigger, but it’s such a nice chill atmosphere I don’t know why anyone would ever want it to become one of the ‘bucket list’ events anyway.

I feel like some of the TRNSMT headliners are on the same level as APE headliners tbh (Stereophonics and Liam Gallagher). Plus, APE seems to have much better undercards than TRNSMT and R&L

Yeah I know, it’s clearly not a black and white thing, but Stereophonics in particular was clearly just TRNSMT saving money to spend elsewhere, whereas they’d be a ‘main’ headliner if for some reason APE ever booked them.

APE isn’t gonna be booking Arctic Monkeys any time soon, even if they put out more records which alienate half their fanbase. Similarly you won’t find LCD or Bon Iver ever headlining TRNSMT or Reading either, whereas APE can get away with them without so much as a raised eyebrow.

Plus TRNSMT is a bigger thing culturally because it’s Scotland’s main fest whereas APE is just one of a bunch of big fests in London, obvs. APE will never get people going to it just to post photos of themselves at a festival on Instagram like they do at TRNSMT and Reading because that sort of person will just go to Wireless or even BST instead.

Wasn't really considering APE but that Saturday is insanely good. Now gotta figure how to get to Neighbourhood Weekender on the Sunday.

Has anyone had any luck with the £5 off since you're going to another day thing? Heard them floating this around Twitter when the line ups were first coming out - probably a load of bollocks and they've not committed to it knowing AEG

Best day line up I've seen in a few years that! The Strokes, Raconteurs, Jarvis, Interpol, Courtney Barnett, Johnny Marr, Parquet Courts. Incredible. Got Glastonbury and Nos already booked this year and don't think they'll have a day as good as that this year. Unfortunately I'll thrown a few feelers out this morning and no one can make the thing though 😐

Ents 24 have got a presale tomorrow as well. Got an email about it bout an hour ago. I'm sure if you register on the site they'll send you one. Wouldn't surprise me if there's one posted on the APE Facebook site tomorrow morning too

Have there been any rumours for the final headliner?

Been mentioned on here already although you'll have to plough through the pages

Oh Sees tour ends on 24 May at Bearded Theory with no London date and tickets still to shift. Reckon they will be at this but not sure which day. Probably a better fit on The Strokes day but logistics might make them more likely for the Sunday?

Could you say it's a tame booking?

Ah - was hoping it was them, but logistically it would be hard

Do you think they’ll announce any other uk dates? Ideally somewhere a bit further North? 

If they’re playing this then it wouldn’t be a total shock to see them pop up at Parklife or TRNSMT as a weird Liam Gallagher or NERD-type booking to get the Early Millenials through the gate. Probably not though.

Didn't someone way back mention something about Modest Mouse being around in Europe May time? Would they be big enough to do a day here?
