Frank Iero wouldn’t warrant a secret set. He wouldn’t fill the tent if he was announced let alone if he appeared out of the blue. Imagine hyping up a secret set to play in front of 150 people.

What about Highly suspect, they are releasing new music this friday and havent played a show in UK since feb 2018. 

Now that would be a real secret set, such a well kept secret I’ve never even heard of them!

i’ve noticed this too, still got my fingers crossed for them to be playing 🤞

Literally there is nowhere they could go. There's no gaps on the Radio 1 stage and imagine Catfish on the FR stage...

So, is there any chance of a potential secret set on the FR or Pit after the headliners on the Post day? I’ve never know them to have a secret set that late but then I’ve never known both to finish that early.

Can't see it, it would be poor treatment of any headliner to put a secret set up against them. Plus the secret sets are usually early in the day as a way of getting people into the arena, put them on late in the evening and it loses that advantage for the festival.

Was thinking it would be stupid putting a headliner up against a secret set but it seems the only way to get someone like Catfish to do a secret set. Them in the middle of the day in the FR would be carnage. I just don’t see why they would not book them for so long after how popular they are.

Only reason I can think of is they fit into that strange phase of being too big to sub and not big enough to headline and also probably don't want to co-headline,  would be odd if they've not even tried to get them

To be fair between Citadel and TRNSMT they may have been locked down for this year - citadel especially didnt sell well as it was, but imagine Reading being on sale so close too with a much better undercard. I know which I'd choose. Next year co headline I reckon

Surprised The S.L.P not been mentioned on here for a slot, early on dance stage?

Surely nowhere near big enough. Sure he was in Kasabian but the SLP have only released 4 songs and they aren’t even that popular are they?

Yeah but the difference is that was announced. If rumours went round about the SLP secret set I can’t see too many people rushing to get there. Maybe would have been good as a “special guest” opener but not as a secret set.

They had toured so heavily, Citadel was their 3rd London festival running in 3 years. I think they just need to give touring a rest for a year then come back and they could definitely do it.

Love Fame Tragedy a shout maybe for a secret set? Would be a good way to kick off the solo thing but I doubt it maybe as the Wombats did a secret last year and are already back for a second year running. I am assuming he will be playing lots of their songs as well as the new singles so it would kind of be overkill, 4 sets in 2 years.
