9.30 is just ridiculous, even BST is later than that and its got all the posh people around Hyde Park. Got out nice and quick though and home around 11 anyway so thats alright I guess but it wasn't even dark for the end of the headline set. I think two of the wireless days are later by 30 mins but still its such as joke vs Victoria Park. No fireworks either complete joke really.

yeh init i agree, 9:30 is way too early for a headline set to end, and yeah i agree fireworks woulda been great too...

wireless times for this year are: friday- 13:30-22:30, saturday- 11:00-22:30, sunday- 11:00-21:30

with the friday and saturday though having end times of 10.30, what is stopping commuity from being held on a saturday if it were to stay at finsbury? but tbh i cant see FR wanting to stay much longer if the locals continue to moan about it, i felt the sound for every set par the kooks was pretty quiet and at times you couldnt even hear the artist. but, it was still a great day and i got to kings cross by 10.15, the organisation was great for entrance and exit - apart from the massive queue for online tickets to be collected. other than that though, excited for 2020! 

 

edit: the music at wireless according the set times posted on the app, finishes at 10.15 on the fri & sat, then 9.20 on sun

I had a very eventful day but all in all, besides the early finish and some noticeable sound issues for Swmrs, thought it was very well put on again.

 

also have I made it up or did they have stalls selling gum, fags, etc. Last year?? Cuz they didn’t this year but I could’ve sworn they did last year as I remember buying from there.

yeah at victoria park 9:30 was when the headline sets were starting - their loss as Finsbury Park I guess. Thoughts on who will be headlining next year? Would like to maybe see the wombats take the slot myself although they might be a bit small. Kooks seemed to sell it really well this year and they are doing the same slot as them at r&l. Was a lot busier earlier on than previously years too, probably thanks to Gerry mainly but still.

erm well i would love to see maybe foals do it? courteeners would be decent but i reckon theyre too big now for community. its hard to guess though who they could get as headliners though, as i definitely wasnt expecting the kooks this year; maybe bastille, bombay bicycle club, kaiser chiefs, cage the elephant could be in with shouts of headlining? not too sure though tbh. but then in terms of other acts i could see or would like to see there include razorlight, gerry cinnamon (again), dmas, decland mckenna, the wombats, the vaccines, jamie t, lily allen... will be intersting to see though if they stay on at FP or move on elsewhere to somewhere like victoria park where the sets can finish later; unless FR can try and change the restrictions currently in place for them so they could finish at maybe 10.30/10.45? anyways, does anyone know why they do the festival on the sunday not the saturday?

Last year the festival was on a Sunday because they had Liam Gallagher there on the Friday and Queens of the Stone age on the Saturday. Not sure what happened to any acts on the Friday and Saturday this year? I did hear that Kings of Leon were to play one of the days but this never happened in the end.

They subbed IoW definitely not too big, probably wouldn't sell well down here either and I hope not. Bombay is possible I think not sure on Kaisers or Cage - cage are a bit niche. Victoria Park is full so not there unfortunately and unless they come to an agreement by moving wireless theres no way it will be later. It was Sunday every year so far is probably why, not really sure although I guess it makes it slightly later after the final pay day. May be easier to get staff than friday/saturday too.

Foals would be a great pick I think - who were you expecting this year and why not Kooks? I didn't think they were that big really with their past placements at other fests I guess.

tbh i was expecting a bit of a bigger band such as catfish again, but i guess citadel got them. but i did think in the end that the kooks fit the bill really well and pulled quite a good headline set; just a shame though it still ended in daylight and had no fireworks to finish off the night. and fairs i reckon courteeners or foals then with wombats as a special guest. but yeh i reckon FR will end up staying at finsbury, just a shame though as both fests do have a lot more potential - but theyre held back by the restrictions the council has put in place for them; would love to see that change though.

who are you thinking could be on the bill?

They've generally had a few big acts on each bill who probably could've headlined so I wouldn't be surprised to see somebody like Kaisers subbing, could see Bastille probably headlining too? Also people like Wolf Alice, Courteenrs could easily be booked.

I think Bastille/Courteeners with Wombats would go down really well. Other choices maybe George Ezra, Noel Gallagher (maybe too old though with their whole new music thing but would be great). I think if the wombats weren't doing Reading this year then they could headline probably, maybe next album I guess but would love to see them headline it. Foals would definitely be fine without Wombats, I'd currently say Wombats are probably too strong for sub unless its an underwhelming headliner. Would honestly love to see them make Community a two day event and make it maybe one larger artist like Foals on the Sunday as its a worse day for sales and then a smaller one like wombats on Saturday but sell only two day tickets at least till a month before it would work well, I think they are already kind of struggling to get suitable headliners as few bands are rising quickly for their new artists kind of thing. Sort of like Neighbourhood Weekender I guess.

2020 - Foals full headline OR George Ezra, Bastille or Courteeners with Wombats special guest

2021 - Blossoms/Catfish or above who didn't do it ^

Not a fan of Wolf Alice and not really that classic community indie pop I guess, not nearly as well known as any of the current headliners we have had but may be on the way, not really a listener to be honest. Can see catfish back although may be too big by 2021if they aren't already now. Surely not 2020 as that will be their 4th london fest in a row and you can tell with Citadel that the sales are dropping off now.

tbf i think the wombats could headline with strong subs, especially considering the kooks did it this year. but yeh a 2 day thing would be pretty mint too and could see it working if they did a different lineup to neighbourhood and kept it at like £70/80 for both days or £55 for the sat, £40 for the sun - like keep it at the cheaper price point for ticket.

Yeah, I guess i just want an early summer festival that can get the big TRNSMT names down south (well like last year's anyway hah) that isn't Glastonbury. Wonder if they will put Community on glastonbury's weekend again, seemed to sell well even though it was that weekend this year.

What smaller acts could be there? Was kinda gutted I couldn't make it this year for Sea Girls and Academic who were both great when i'd seen them before. Would love to see YONAKA, LONA, Sunset Sons play, and could Royal Blood possibly headline? Bit heavier than the headliners they've had so far but I still could see it.

I went for George Ezra, Foals, Wombats and Noel then Glass Animals, Circa Waves, Wombats if they don't headline and someone else.

This was my first Community after two years of pulling out last minute. Wasn’t sure what I was expecting but it was bloody great. Aside the great music, the best bit was finding the quiet green corner, through the trees, (top right of map). No queue for toilets/bars/food between acts. 

I would definitely up for George Ezra here next year.That’d be perfect.

Blossoms and kooks draws all the usual crowd in and royal blood would be a great stepping stone for them to headline reading and attracts new types of fans..

Not convinced that Royal Blood are the right act, not really that classic singalong 5 years out of date indie that they go for. Would definitely put a lot of my friends off anyway. I reckon George must be in with a shout which i'm fine with, pleasantly surprised with his IoW set and would work well with the non-darkness curfew too.

I reckon it’ll be one of the Gallagher brothers. Depends how much they’re willing to invest and other commitments. If Liam isn’t doing Reading and Community are willing to bring him in I’ll say him (but ticket prices will probably increase). If not then Noel has been quiet for a while, he’d probably be quite a bit cheaper but would still go down well.

George Ezra, Foals, any Gallagher and Royal Blood are all too big for this fest. It'll be The Wombats or Bastille.

I feel like any of Noel Liam or Ezra or probably even Royal Blood is probably a bit optimistic. Noel and Ezra have both just done Isle of Wight so would be a huge get for Community. At the moment I think Wombats are possibly the most likely shout? Ideal for the festival, will be three years since they last played, and probably won't be too expensive. Would definitely be tempted if the undercard was as good as it has been so far.

 

Also, who could do the 'heavy' spot this year? Feel like Frank Carter could be a shout, IDLES could if Reading don't get them on an exclusive.

Thinking about it by then it will be a year and a half since their last London show which sold out i think so would definitely be alright. I would love it to be fair, although not too sure as their sounds of the city with circa waves too as support seems to have sold badly so not sure it would work great.

So since Wireless has been announced as 3rd - 5th July 2020, I'd be guessing Community will be Sunday 28th June. Good back-up plan (again) if i'm not at Glastonbury 🤪

Really hope its moved to Saturday 27th because I don't see them pushing it back later than 9.30 sadly. Will still go either way though!

Predictions - in order of likelihood

Headliner: Courteeners, Wolf Alice, Foals, Kaiser Chiefs, The Wombats, Bring Me The Horizon

Sub: Wolf Alice (if not headlining), Nothing But Thieves, Bastille, CHVRCHES, Bloc Party

3rd: Idles, Frank Carter & The Rattlesnakes, Shame, Deaf Havana

Others: Sam Fender, Miles Kane, The Sherlocks, The Magic Gang, DMA'S, Johnny Marr, Pretty Vicious, Introspective

2nd stage headliner: Razorlight, The Night Cafe, Twin Atlantic

Definitely not BMTH, its not their scene at all and so soon after their awful APE sale at a ?larger? festival no chance. Johnny Marr would be great loved him at strokes day on APE.

I thought they were around the same size but community has cheaper tickets and at a better time of year for bmth young fans
