I think Biffy will be at a bunch of smaller festivals and Foals will be at one bigger festival (or failing that, Latitude). Some good shouts about though. Here's some top-threes.

alt-J, Flume, Chvrches
Tame Impala, Haim, Anderson Paak
Portishead, Robyn, M83

Royal Blood, Pixies, Bloc Party
Blur, PJ Harvey, Belle & Sebastian
The Black Keys, Vampire Weekend, Savages

yannis also has ties with yala! records, who have a stage this year- so might make it even more likely// support from people like everything everything, yak etc

Maybe but it's hard to imagine anyone being terribly excited about that prospect. Surely, after this summer, people will want more of an 'event' from Foals than another one-day headline show in London.

what do you mean by “‘event’”? 

(also a side note, they haven’t played a one-day london festival since citadel in 2017/ and by 2020, they’ll have had two albums out- as much as i think i agree with your point, i wouldn’t rule it out)

Not sure how best to describe it but headlining Reading and Leeds again, or IOW or Glasto would be an ‘event’, if we continued using that term. This year they’re doing about ten open air fests and shows in the UK and a headline date at APE would just be a continuation of that.

As you say, they played Victoria Park a couple of years ago. It’d just be pretty boring even with a bunch of new songs. They headlined Reading a few years ago too but then establishing themselves there is at least a bit more interesting.

it wouldn't be a true efestivals prediction without the involvement of Portishead and Blur

You could say the same with Citadel and Communion with Mumford, but alas...

i see what you mean, and i had forgotten citadel was victoria park in “17 when i made that point 

i guess they are doing open air events, but they’re quite small ones (i wouldn’t say playing tunbridge wells will make a big splash in them playing in london)  

although, they are playing boardmasters, this is tomorrow, truck fest, and y not- so maybe a headline london show (like ape) and a sub at glasto wouldn’t be far fetched (like chemical bros are doing this year) 

also, catfish have played three consecutive london festivals, (finsbury park(17), victoria park(18), and gunnersbury(19))- with the point being that it doesn’t seem to be too much of a bother these days

true, but (along with the size difference between fest and act) mumfords like to do all that tweed ‘gentlemen of the road’ bullsh’t, which makes more sense at BST or APE, cos there are other days to rectify their beige ways- but if they were to do that to citadel, a one day event, they might as well put on their own festival (and dear god, no one wants that)

I’m holding out a lot of hope that Pulp will be back on the scene next year. It feels about right for them to return.

Someone on here said they’d recently heard rumours of it being forthcoming, but that’s pretty much all so not to get too excited yet.

I was considering adding them in that prediction on the last page but replaced ‘em with Blur as I think they are more likely to reunite and also to play this, whereas Pulp could be a bit more versatile.

Black Keys is a big shout

I'd seriously shell out serious money to stay in London for a fortnight to watch two weekends like that. I'd be glued to every single one of those sets.

Nah

I hope not just so theres a bigger variety of acts, but based on 2 days selling appallingly and 2 other days having fair amounts of tickets being given away plus the sound issues which put people off who went on the days that actually sold well, they are definitely going to have a tough decision. I am excited though as APE has always got cool acts.

It’s a huge corporation that battled to get the site for this festival - it won’t be retreating to its shell after some bad sales. They wouldn’t be giving away tickets if they weren’t trying to boost awareness of the festival for future years. They’re more likely to rethink who it’s targeted to than shrink the event, but I don’t think they’ll do that either just yet.

They had 2 bad selling days last year too - Bjork and Catfish. I bet they're surprised that Mumfords has sold so badly this year, but the money that they make from the punters (drinks, food, merch and programmes) will probably make up for the lack of money that they are making from sales.
