Individual area posters starting April 10th.

Have we got any takers for this? Or are we going with the chicken's estimates?

In recent years the individual area lineups have mainly been out after the resales so you wouldn't expect them to start until early May BUT this seems very late so I think we may see them earlier. Chicken could be on to something.

Do we think Acoustic May get it’s own poster this time? I’m Sure the main poster normally has acts from more that the 5 main stages so wondering if more of the smaller ones will get their own moment this time.

Horrific thoughts of Theresa May with a guitar up on stage.

That would be pretty good. The Acoustic only got it's own release in 2000 and that wasn't any sort of fanfare release like stages get now. Apart from that it had a few extra names released on their own in 2013.

This is always a dead time for announcements. There has never been one from the 19th to the 24th March.

Hopefully things will start happening again next week but late March announcements have tended to be 1st poster drops or confirming acts who have self confirmed (Black Keys) with the exception of Lana Del Rey and Warpaint in 2014.

Last time the reminder email arrived on the 27th March for a balance payment window on 1st to 7th April so we should see that next week.

Although I don't personally believe we will, I'd love it if we got some more names this week.

I'm more inclined to think the next info we get will be stage announcements and I think they will be starting w/c April 15th...

There aren't usually many announcements between deadline day and the resales, especially in the week after.

2011 and 2015 included 1st lineup announcements. Having said that, we've had the earliest ever 1st lineup announcement along with the latest ever resale day so anything could happen.

I’m expecting earache to announce Rival Sons.

They’re at Download Spain on the 30th, and crucially, named with Glasto on Earaches twitter header.

What would you expect to be in the next announcement, Neil? Lots of names like the first poster or specific areas?
