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.

Jarvis is coming directly from Electric Picnic, I doubt he's just going to be able to change days at the drop of a hat.

I think the most likely scenario is that Courtney will be bumped up, then someone local to the UK and is promoting new material currently will take up a lower slot.

We really should be getting another headline-worthy act though to get our "moneys worth", since the money they were going to pay Beirut is now freed up...

Broken Social Scene finish their European tour dates the week before. I'd be delighted to see them back.

 

Yep, I'd noticed that too......and agree 100% ....... they'd be a lot of fun on a Saturday night..........

I'm not sure if most people were aware Beirut were still going

I understand their career peaked in 2011 on the Woods Stage whilst I was trying to watch Apocalypse Now in the cinema tent.

Has anybody heard anything about a Beirut replacement?

Working Men's Club are supporting Bodega in Birmingham and Bedford on 27th & 28th - they would be a great late addition. Bump Courtney up and create a space on the undercard.

Just bump Courtney up and use the freed up funds from the Beirut cancellation to bring in Föllakzoid (playing in Brighton on the Sunday of EOTR so should be a no brainer), Dungen (performing Ta Det Lugnt in full) and Lingua Ignota.

Missing this Black Midi set for Goat Girl should actually be illegal. 

Does anyone else think Black Midi are criminally overrated? I've given them a few tries (including after reading about people's love for them on this thread), and although some of the music is really interesting, a lot of it is far too noodly for me, and the lead singer's voice is horrible...

Can definitely see why you’d say that, it did take me a while to get into them but now I think they’re easily one of the best young bands around. Their live shows are genuinely astounding but not for everyone. The fact that they’re at EOTR pretty much sold the festival to me.

They definitely are an acquired taste but once your hooked they’re ace. 

I first saw them Green Man and had no idea what to expect only that I could see all kids gathering for a right mash up. Stood at the front of the Rising Stage and got a right battering. Actually getting lost in their album tonight followed by some Brian Jonestown Massacre and a few beers 🚀

Cant see EOTR on the Fontaines tour page. We sure they're still playing with all the cancellations?

At least one of the dates they'd announced as cancelled is still on there so I wouldn't read that into it unless they/EOTR confirm it specifically.

Wilco European tour starts on 4th Sept...

Could easily change their flight to stop off in Bristol or Southampton.

Maybe we'll get another exclusive listening preview of their new album, but this time in the flesh rather than listening to the record.

In fact this all sounds so plausible that I've already decided it's definitely happening.
