2021 Lineup


Recommended Posts

That introducing stage is proper quality this year isn’t it? STONE, Yard Act, Alfie Indra, Bonnie Kemplay, Calva Louise and Berwyn all really great acts. Really hoping for minimal clashes for Stone, Yard Act and Alfie Indra especially, have accepted with Calva Louise and Berwyn being headliners and subs respectively i’ll probably be elsewhere.

Can’t recommend Stone and Yard Act enough if you’re into your new wave post punk semi-spoken word style stuff

Noooooo! 
 

ive only got 9 bands that I really want to see all weekend and now that’s reduced to 8 (unless they get a decent replacement)

Bollocks! Ho99o9 gone too.

Im down to 7 for the weekend (would’ve been 6 after QOTSA pulled out but happy with Biffy)

Fingers and everything else is crossed that the replacements are good.

Feel like this is the start of US bands pulling out - Yungblud (lives in LA) and KennyHoopla are in the UK so they’re good to go

What’s annoying is that the festival aren’t even keeping us up to date.

The fact Spiritbox have pulled out was discovered because someone spotted it on their instagram and Ho99o9 have been removed from the poster without comment.

Fair play to Bloodstock who have kept us up to date every time there is a line up change.

It's sold out, they don't care anymore to be honest. 30k people could turn up but 90k tickets sold is what matters.

I get that but most other businesses would still need to look after their potential future customers by treating them well.Thatobviously doesn’t apply in Reading/Leeds case as there’ll still be a queue of new people wanting tickets next year regardless.

I imagine they’ll be saving them up for an announcement next week or when the app/set times are out but it’s still not great. It’d be less embarrassing for them to derail all the changes at once than post every time an act pulls out. It’ll have to be officially announced soon, you’d be fuming if it got down to set times coming out only to find your favourite band had pulled out.

STONE are great, so glad that they've made it to R+L as there's been some great artists and bands play on the Introducing and then go on to much bigger things, i'm hoping for the same for them. Liverpools music scene at the moment is buzzing and definitely should be on everyones radar.

Bar and toilet queues too...

I think those will actually be lessened as they were always heaving post and act on main stage finishing (the bogs anyway, the bars are never too bad but are at peak then). People will have to go why bands are on, so it should be more spread out

Unfortunately, this is not something new for RandL. In 2014 we bought tix mainly because of Chino Moreno's Crosses pretty much Europe exclusive gig in the Pit. The Band was removed from the poster without any explanation a month before the festival:/ I guess such things are inevitable when you're organizing a festival with 200+ bands. With the COVID situation, things are obviously worse...


I don't know if Daniel P Carter still curates the Pit. I'm sure (if possible) he'll come up with some quality replacements.
Let's see

Pretty much any band from the Download Pilot would fit the bill, and that was all put together at short notice. 

Also, Slam Dunk is the weekend after, so lots of bands on that bill should be ready with very little notice.

Yeah I got a sneaky suspicion this is the start of a few that’s gonna pull out - there were a lot last time but had a feeling we weren’t done

just hope they can get some suitable replacements in time - you can’t change the circumstances of them been pulled, but hopefully the replacements more than make up for it.

Malevolence. 
 

Really hoping that City Morgue don’t pull but I can also see it coming. 

City Morgue have got the app notification saying "unfortunately City Morgue are no longer able to perform" written all over them. Really hope it's not the case, R&L, a warm up in London and two gigs in Poland a couple of days after are all they have in Europe though, plus they have a gig in Chicago in the 21st

Watched Lauran Hibberd at a local festival this weekend who is playing the introducing stage, well worth a watch. Good front woman and pretty catchy punky vibes is what I was getting. 

She's brilliant- saw her at a couple of small festivals in 2019 and she's released some even better music since. 

Holly Humberstone is also good

Yeah, I remember that.
 

Trouble is I didn’t notice until a day or so before that they weren’t playing and was not happy.
