Victorious 2019

Not sure. Victorious is in Portsmouth in August, Citadel is in July in central London, two completely different events.

If it turns out not to be New order(unlikely, as they are almost nailed on by the sounds of things), definitely think it will be Catfish as announcing Citadel this morning shows that they are playing multiple UK festivals this summer and not just TRNSMT. They only really seem to be taking headline slots as well, so if Victorious are offering them up a headline slot I doubt they would turn it down.

Bit of wishful thinking but, could new order not slot in somewhere on the Saturday or Sunday and catfish still headline the Sunday? New order bare minimum sub on main stage. With acts announced so far that could be a possibility little bit of reshuffling. Just a thought, don’t want to get slated for saying it though haha, it would be a win win in that scenario seen as I love new order and catfish.

as much as i think you have a point, tame impala were a u.k. exclusive for citadel last year and are arguably bigger than catfish- so although they won’t be an exclusive, it’s quite possible they’ll just do the two city shows (london&glasgow) and appear at glasto maybe

also does the fact that catfish are playing citadel, and trnsmt mean they’re less of a ‘global’ act now?

The only surprising thing for me is New Order are headlining Bluedot which is, according to efests listings a 5k capacity festival. 

They also aren't an arena act, when you look at the line up this year theres no arena acts on there at all. Maybe its just one of those years where no-one is available. I guess it does seem to have allowed for a stronger undercard bill. 

That Sunday it looks like 3 big acts could still be announced, Saturday has Rudimental, Bloc Party, James Bay, OCS and Hives all in bold.

Sunday just has Vaccines and Clean Bandit. 

And we got Saturday special guests tba unless they do a Gomez on us like last year. 

Interesting I saw team locals say that Blue Monday sign is for the special guests slot. But I really can't imagine New Order are only the early 1.45 Saturday slot.

So regardless, who we thinking taking up the other big slots, say its New Order and 3 more big slots?

You know whats weird Tame Impala are playing Europe the ENTIRE summer and have no UK dates whatsoever. 

Would be class to have them headline, Tame Impala, New Order, The Vaccines as a top 3. Hell throw Editors in as 4th down. Beautiful.

Catfish are much bigger in the UK than Tame Impala. They're a big booking for Citadel - they would have been fairly big here. I think you might be right that they might be less of a Global type headliner now but if they're moving up in the world then that's inevitable.

I don’t even think new order are bigger than the vaccines at the minute. Only people playing above the vaccines on festivals at the moment are like NG...  so new order could be a special guest or a sub. I think there are three potential good sized acts and one biggy to come. Don’t know who but new orders definitely one. 

Tame impala would go down a treat but I’m really not sure. I don’t even know who to speculate anymore.

Could Peter Hook be playing again as the special guest? 

My mind is numb in thinking who the headliner could be. I know there is a strong call for Catfish, i love them and would be happy but i just don't see it.

I also don't see New order as a headliner for a festival of this size, especially when looking at the line ups over recent years. 

Maybe New Order could be a sub - but to who????

good fun this isnt it?

Couple of friends tell me they've heard rumours of The Killers. Not sure where from.

Similar size to Latitude, which they headlined last year. So, not impossible?

According to efests listing, Victorious is almost double the size of Latitude. Having not been to Latitude I can't comment. But it says that's 35k and Vic is 65k

The "killers"

Radio interview - "I thought they were dead"

"Don't say any more you'll give it away"

 

Genius !

Last year at latitude.... the vaccines subbed the killers. 

Give new order a decent slot with killers and vaccines subbing what a Sunday.

re: Killers chat, think there's going to be a lot of disappointed people here on Thursday.

I think generally wherever you go on Thursday there will probably be mostly disappointed people.

What is expected from this Thursday announcement? The final headliner or more? 

The Sunday headliner and more. 

They will probably hold a little back for April announcement, but maybe not. This will be the 3rd announcement, so we might have all the big names on Thursday. Just leaving the smaller stages for later announcements. I doubt we will get any stage splits yet.

Who are you thinking Lucky?  Do we think we’re getting new order as a headliner or maybe someone else.. If it is new order it’s dire for headliner.
