Not really, it’s announce Dave, this doesn’t look like Dave etc

theres obviously other artists mixed in but his is the name I see the most 

It’s just a sub set of potential attendees in an echo chamber. Taking into account what people crow for on social media to book a festival would be a terrible idea.

The year is 2038. We've been back at Reading for several years now. The Wombats have just finished their set, 3rd from the top of main stage on their 20th consecutive year at Reading Festival. Next up

Dua Lipa could sub Liam. Yes, while she is one of the biggest artists in the world, in terms of their live pull they both had 2 nights at The O2 on recent tours and Gallagher sold his out much faster.

With the young audience, Dua would probably draw a bigger crowd than Liam but it wouldn't look too out of place to have her subbing Liam.

This is all hypothetical and I'm fully expecting Gerry Cinnamon to still sub. However, I had a random thought that if Community Festival returns in 2021 I would say he has a shot at headlining, even with his current tour dates FR could shift him over to that.

Liam would/will pull a massive crowd. I doubt there are many bands, if any, more popular with R&L’s young audience than Oasis. 

Id say AM tbh. Oasis close second though and I agree with your point, he’ll get a big crowd for sure even if he isn’t popular on here

Imagine being in a band and searching your band's name on Twitter to see what people have to say about you :lol:

No way is Gerry headlining community, would need a strong sub for that (maybe wombats perhaps) - people like him down here a bit but he can't do Community yet (and hopefully never).

I don't see how Dave is an awful shout, he would be cheap as fuck too I bet. AM / Dave / Liam wouldn't break the bank and please a lot of people. Migos, TDCC/Courteeners and Capaldi to sub.

What makes Dave a headliner? He hasn’t got new music to promote. I also can’t see them putting him as a headliner straight away when they could definitely get away with having him sub and then headline a couple of years after that.

I would love to see Parquet Courts & Gang of Youths on the poster next year where do we think they would be on the bill? 

i'm a big fan of Gang of Youths, Go Farther In Lightness is up there with my favourite albums but with that being said they wouldn't play high up the line up if they were to be booked, probably high up in the FR tent

Post Malone only released two songs from his 3rd album when he headlined. I think Dave is working on a second album currently and if he's promoting it in 2021 he could easily headline

Post Malone was way bigger than Dave, though. He was essentially the biggest artist in the world when he co-headlined. Dave isn’t there yet.

Dave is one of the biggest UK rappers though and he fits with the audience. If he is planning on putting an album out in 2021 he'll headline.

It's a bit sad isn't it since I didn't @ them nor was it a response to anything they'd posted. Even funnier that they've still liked it considering what it says hahaha

I see them liking a lot of posts on insta as well, and not even just music ones a good selection

I second this he’s absolutely huge within the festival going community, arguably same level as Stormzy

Dave is not as big as Stormzy. Look at the arena tour Stormzy had lined up.

Dave isn’t as big as Stormzy yet. He’s not too far off but they’re definitely not equal. Stormzy is 100% headline status and Dave probably couldn’t do it at this point in time. Another album/lead up to a new album and yeah, headliner but as of now he’s not. He needs that push of album 2
