Suzanne Vega

Saw her at Beautiful Days, wasn't too fussed but my brother was pretty keen.  Would definitely be one for the Acoustic, but she was lovely to watch.  Sounded great and her songs are beautiful.

I'd forgotten Hozier - stumbled across him in 2014 and loved him!

Also just come across Isaac Gracie - sounds good, must listen some more.  Can anyone tell me more about him?

He was on with Annie Mac last night, some time in the first hour, catch up with it.  Just a brief interview as she had his new single as the hottest in the world, so played it twice.  I'll be going to see him if he's there next year for sure.

Simple Minds

Thought about them last week as my dad was on Sicily for a holiday and mentioned Jim Kerr living there. Immediately wondered if they would be up for a return (last in 1995?) and what slot? (Especially because we were discussing The Cure on here.)

Seen him a few times - he used to play solo, just him and his guitar which was pretty amazing as he could fill the room with sound. Plays with a band now, still good but I preferred the cut down sound of his earlier performances. Listen to the 2 versions of 'Terrified' on Spotify to hear the difference in his sound now. 

Saw him in 2016 at the BBC Introducing stage with my (almost) 2 year old son - we were pretty enthusiastic during the gig so he came out to meet us afterwards and had a photo! Nice guy.

Thanks - I'll have a listen (I've just had a quick look on Spotify but can only find one version so far).  I know what you mean though, I saw Gaz Brookfield a few times and then saw him with a full band - much preferred just him and his guitar as you could hear the lyrics and appreciate his guitar work more.

Thanks will catch up with that.  Yeah, I agree he will be on my to see list if he's there next year.

Thanks - I see what you mean.  I loved the stripped down version but also really liked the other version too.  I do hope he plays next year.

Post Malone unlikely id say? I don't think he'd take a low slot and I don't think they'd offer him a high one.

 

Id love to see Nils Frahm there somewhere. I saw the animal colective this summer and they were amazing so id happily see them again.

good choices :D 

 

both of these delivered what, to me personally, were life affirming performances at One Love this year - masterclasses in performance and passion.

yup, I loved them there too - tho I thought Iquiah was even more impressive at One Love 2015, and it was a shame the Twinkle One got a short set (I blame the diva Alborosie).

Any chance of a Thom Yorke solo gig? He seems to be quite active atm and supposedly has a solo album coming out. Not sure where theyd put him though

There’s a chance I guess - he’ll almost certainly be there anyway. The Park seems a natural home.

Would think Imagine Dragons will get a big spot, maybe even sub/third on the pyramid. They have a new album next month and regularly sell out UK arenas. 

I would be happy with that. They're great live. Wasn't the lead singer diagnosed with a degenerative illness? 

Edit - just checked - it's a form of arthritis but I've no idea how and when that might impact on his being able to perform.
