A few of these at Bearded Theory seem like certs.

Actually, Flaming Lips are a possibility since they don't have a date in London. However, given that the Kaleidoscope headline show did not sell well, they certainly won't be APE headliners. Patti Smith is likely ruled out because of her November shows.

Beck confirms brixton academy show in July

Was gutted to miss out on the 2016 date at Brixton so this is of interest.

Quite something that I initially thought this year was going to be quiet for gigs after 2018/19 were intense on that front... there's like a good 10 things I want to do already. 😝

Biffy Clyro’s absence from R/L has surely got to make them seem likely for this now considering there’s few festivals left for them to be at? 

I'm not sure what their options really are. I'm aware that until it became apparent Stormzy was going to do R&L on top of his pre-announced arena commitments, Biffy were linked with it. So this has to be up there for them though.

Unless there's some other event we've all missed. Personally I think them subbing Foos at BST Hyde Park would be pretty awesome, but that's fantasy shit. Even if that would be better in a stadium imo as Hyde Park's acoustics are patchy.

Would be chuffed with a Biffy/Lana double header on the Saturday and Sunday of the second weekend. 

Which would both explain the late announcements. Biffy once their album/tour is announced (you'd imagine imminently, maybe next week?) and Lana after her UK arena tour finishes so would probably be a 3rd March announcement if it happens.

I don't think there's any reason to delay a Lana announcement until March – her O2 date has sold out and the rest of the regional dates are pretty much all gone as well.

Her and her team! LDR's solo tour will almost certainly be a type of deal where if she passes 'x' amount of ticket sales, she makes more money. Festivals play flat fees so that's not applicable. 

 

As previously stated, her O2 date has sold out, and the rest of the tour is basically there, so can’t see the benefit.  In fact, if tickets sell poorly as a result of the delay it would be incredibly bad PR and damage her brand, like it did for C&TQ’s

Do we think someone pulled out?

Well, it’s likely NIN did, but that was a while back. Arcade Fire may have as well, or at least they could have been involved in protracted negotiations which didn’t succeed. Same could be true for RATM or MCR.
