Lawks! It's only the 2019 Next Announcement Thread!

Recommended Posts

Bit underwhelming for me but mainly because I already knew about the cure and idles. I also suppose it's unfair to expect a massive surprise each year and it always to be someone to my taste.

Bring on June!

Hi Sas!

That SpiderSet™️ was truly magnificent, partly because of time and place, being with beloved friends and being perfectly, erm, refreshed!

However, Mr Hopkins was also UNBELIEVABLE live at Motion in Bristol a couple of weeks ago and so you should be majorly excited!! The Singularity live show with some precious bangers and a couple of amazing covers thrown in is phenomenal. Looking at the poster, the dream of him closing West Holts seems to be gone, so I just hope he’s somewhere/sometime excellent...!

:)

Ben x

Oooh I wonder where they'll put him! Closing JP? I'm still so annoyed with myself about 2017, I totally  just FORGOT he was on. Unbelievable. 

Please be a live set. Please be a live set. Please be a live set. 

p.s. I love Motion :) Haven't been there in years!!!

Do you think he was for the Saturday? Makes me wonder if The Killers agreed to do the secret slot if they had an agreement to headline again or if Emily just thought that once Macca dropped The Killers would be ideal to replace based on the crowd they got in 17 

all scenarios are possible. I want to know which scenario it was.

I absolutely love the lineup so far.

For those of us who go to a lot of gigs and festivals, each year there are fewer and fewer "wow" acts because we've been fortunate enough to tick lots of them off but there's still plenty to soundtrack the greatest weekend of the year.

If there's things on here that you're not familiar with, now's a great opportunity to get familiar and find something new to love.

Hit the nail on the head there. I've realised I've pretty much hit saturation point over the years, but the positive is that it frees you up to explore new artists and wonder a bit more around the site.

Nick Grimshaw is full of shit.

He's full of shit, but to be fair, he didn't say they were headlining.  He said playing. And he's said it 3 times. Maybe they still are.

It's alright. 2 headliners I want to see but obviously nothing on a Stones/Macca level, probably 13 or 14 others I have an interest in going to see but no absolute must sees yet but who knows, when I start listening to those I've never heard before I may find my new favourite band. Still a long way to go with only 65 acts named so far.

I can't believe they didn't deem Jeff Goldblum big enough to be on the main poster either - he's Jeff GOLDBLUM for goodness sake! An absolute outrage so it is.... 

I don't think they announce who is in the underground piano bar...

Chems have nearly always done Sunday right? or am I just making that up?

 

Bit of a bad clash if they are, rather have them go up against Killers.

Last two were Sunday; two before were Saturday. The Pyramid set I can't quite recall but pretty sure it was a Friday...

Right, whos got a list of which slots/bands were announced in 2017 after the initial poster.

The one that sticks out is Tame Impala in 2016.

I think they have enough time to seek a replacement. Courteeners were rumoured to play under The Prodigy and do not see them being boosted up.

Vampire Weekend

I really hope so tbh.... that would be my choice. 

Ideally I would want Tame Impala to clash with Stormzy and Vampire Weekend to clash with the Cure... then I can watch the Killers as well

Courteeners were supposedly the sub to Prodigy and haven't been announced - so I'm guessing they're still working out what to do.

I knew one had been a Sat. Really hoping it is again this time.

Imagine Jeff in the piano bar! I might actually stick to my resolution to make it in there if he would be at the end of it :lol:
