2019 Predictions

Recommended Posts

I was planning on seeing them as I’ve seen Low a few times before and never seen Beirut

 

wonder if they will move Courtney Barnett up to headliner and just find someone to fill a gap lower down? Likely just depends on who is available

It's a good chance to get a better headliner in - this year's headliners might be the weakest ever.

 

Get Stereolab to replace, easy peasy.

Not a lot of headline quality bands around for such a slot at short notice - look at Green Man, they only announced Yo La Tengo as headliners last week when they weren't even first named in the relevant new addition announcement. I'd guess all EOTR-level festivals have standby lists but replacing the band they'd been pushing as main headliner...

Not a fan of Beirut so I was always going to see Low. That was an easy clash to resolve. Really hope they don't get an amazing replacement 😂😂😂

Lot of people responding with 'Better Oblivion Community Center!!!!', because it'll obviously be simple for Oberst, Bridgers and band to drop everything for one overseas date with seven weeks' notice.

Edwyn Collins is free 

Not even headlining the not much more than half of EOTR capacity Moseley Folk Festival the same weekend.

The Strokes are in Ireland the night before. Can't see it though.

CB is arguably a bigger draw than Beirut anyway so she will likely just move up a spot.

It'll be Ezra though won't it?

I always chuckle at some of ludicrous suggestions for replacements when this sort of thing happens. Not so much in here, but on social media. You have to wonder if some of these people even know what festival they're attending.

I would be pretty chuffed with Courtney being bumped up! Would resolve my clash with Kikagaku Moyo.

Can see Ezra stepping up, but really, it should be CB. Was surprised she wasn't headlining already tbh

Public Service Broadcasting are headlining Moseley on the Friday. They’ve played EOTR before. Could see them being slotted in as subs if CB is bumped up.

I can't imagine that there are any headliner acts who just happen to have nothing booked that weekend so I expect that Courtney will get bumped up and they'll find a sub somewhere - Ezra? Courtney vs Low will be a horrible clash though - big decision to be made by me.

I'd be happy with that - I was planning on missing Courtney for the Garden Stage stuff and then heading over to see Beirut, so if I get to see her now it'd be a result.

I wouldn't be surprised if it's Low getting moved across.

Ezra's US tour begins on the 5th so I guess rehearsals, not to mention the expense of flying over for a single date, would rule that out.

As long as it's the Furman variety....he'd be welcomed back with open arms; by me anyway.

I know, it's hilarious. Suggesting The Strokes!? On Facebook someone suggested Royal Blood (LOL), another person said The Rolling Stones (what?) and someone else said Bill Ryder-Jones (not even big enough to headline the Big Top)

Shift Jarv Is from Sunday Garden to Saturday (otherwise Garden is going to be rammed on the Sunday), then get either Ezra or British Sea Power (playing around end of August in UK) to headline Garden on Sunday.

Kikagaku Moyo on that stage is one of the gigs of the year for me. Saw them in Dublin a few weeks ago. So so good.

Agreed! At sunset time it is going to be pretty special.
