Yeah it's a tough one to call; was thinking Foals or Royal Blood, would Alt-J? Are Mumford or Biffy far too big? Two Door didn't sell it out by what seemed like a little way this year so maybe they'll try to step it up. Especially seeing as Mumford won't be headlining R+L, Glasto or Latitude and that they'll be on a new album cycle. Bastille could be in with a shout aswell. Vampire Weekend seem more like for APE or R+L, considering the British focus of the last two.

Could see Jamie T as a potential sub. Trying to think of who would fill out the card without recycling from the past two years or straying too far from the genre, maybe they'd bring Slaves or The Hunna back. The Kooks would be one for third down maybe, very boring live though imo. 

Didnt even think about the Courteeners, especially having just subbed R+L, maybe this is next for them; seems the dullest/most likely choice.

COURTEENERS - Jamie T - The Kooks - The Hunna - Declan McKenna lol

I'd quite like to see Foals honestly, but doesn't seem like they are touring. It would be their first UK show for a while though, since Citadel 17 also in London. If they were to do a few festivals which seems pretty unlikely it would probably be like GSS or something. They haven't done a UK tour for a long time though so it would probably sell well.

Bastille seem the obvious shout for me. 

Yep. To the point where anyone else doesn’t make sense.

Probably like Bastille > Blossoms > Don Broco. Why am I here lol

Pretty sure that Broco said that after this tour they are done till the next album, but agreed Bastille and Blossoms as a top 2 seem like a no brainer

Would the 1975 do this 

Almost definitely too big for Community I'd say, although they would be a perfect fit if they upscaled a bit.

Makes a lot of sense. If Don Broco aren't around who else might be a good fit for the 'heavier' band they seem to like to book? Frank Carter maybe?

Blossoms are doing Stockport stadium 22nd June, does that rule them out for Community? Not sure they'd want another outdoor show so close to that show, especially if they weren't headlining.

I don't think they'll have much difficulty selling that out before Community is announced. Practically different worlds, their hometown and that London, so it won't matter a bit.

Blossoms aren't big enough to headline Finsbury. Could see them sub it mind. 

Absolutely. Maybe even third down, depending on who else they get to play.

They've had You Me at Six and Slaves play third down so Blossoms wouldn't be TOO much of a stretch, although I think they'd be much more likely to sub. There probably aren't too many bands bigger than Blossoms that fit the demographic Community is going for

Tickets onsale Friday so I reckon lineup Thursday. Announcement brought forward considerably - hopefully this time they'll manage to sell it out.

Isn’t it about money these days and what sells? 

 

They'd have to increase ticket price tho, which I imagine would be an issue for the demigraphic the festival aims at

What do you mean? They'll get booked for events that are way bigger and consequently pay way more. They're even being spoken about as Glasto headliners; they're not gonna headline Community where the headliners so far have been TDCC and Catfish.

It goes without saying that 1975 have bigger fish to fry next summer with the possibility of Glasto or R&L. 

I do therefore doubt they'll play this, but I wouldn't say they're 'way too big' for it. Finsbury holds 40k odd after all.
