Cor, £70 price hike on last year 

Few titbits from my friend tonight at the big moon gig  No news on NiN or arcade fire. Arcade fire still not decided if they are touring next year. NIN are mulling over festivals or their own gig

Morrissey's views, as repugnant as some are, are not really that outside what a lot of people think. That it is affecting him booking shows seems sad, he's not done anything illegal. A lot of pearl cl

No it’s not the Kooks. That is plain ridiculous. 

I can't see them headlining a full day but they're very much comparable to Catfish in 2018 - could easily be a day like that. Plus, the (first) source has correctly delivered the other headliners.

I don’t want to live in a world where Beck, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, Justice, Interpol and Iggy Pop are considered subs whilst the bleeding Kooks are deemed headliner material.

Catfish - who while awful are very popular with young people and played on Radio 1 - are in no way comparable to a band who haven’t been remotely revelation for more than a decade and were shit even when they were popular.

Where's this Kooks stuff coming from? It isn't 2006 Haha. Their last album came out two years ago and charted at No 9 in the UK. They aren't exactly popular young go-getting ticket sellers with consistent a back catalogue?

Wouldn't surprise me if they are struggling to book headliners.

Bookers of arena size bands/artists on the up may be dubious, have reputations to think of: "Didn't you give away loads of tickets for free last year? Sound issues for The Strokes sell out? Sure you know what you're doing?"

The Kooks, though, no chance.

Nah that’s nonsense.

Pay them their fee and they’ll play - no one gives a feck about how they fill the venue. And sound issues were a one off. All festivals have sound issues from time to time.

They’ve done 12 nights so far and only one had sound issues.

I don't think it'll be blink-182 due to it being too close to their USA tour for a band where a member has to sail across the Atlantic to get here.

Lana being ruled out is a surprise given how people had it nailed on she was gonna do this. But then maybe it isn't - there's been a lot of dead certs falling through this year.

Biffy clyro have been pretty active on their socials this week with colourful cards being the main thing... presumably that's a sign something is coming very soon.

(IIRC) someone on here who has had reliable info on some of the other acts playing gave us a clue that it was an artist related to Community Festival, and a second person independently heard it was The Kooks.

Only one has had issues, as such. But personally I find the general quiet sound level an issue. I know there's not much they can do about that though.

You can only go by what you know, I’ve been three times in the last couple of years and have never had an issue (I wasn’t at the Stokes mind).

I don’t see the problem with Kooks, while its not the most exciting booking its cheap and will sell better than BMTH and Christine. Also their Community day was the busiest one yet it seemed to me and they have a pretty wide audience.

I don't think you can rely on previous tours in the same way.

BMTH sold out 2 nights at Alexandra Palace and most of an arena tour before APE which I would argue is less than the Kooks could handle at this point.

As the same time, I'm not sure where the 5K tickets information came, the day was as busy as Bon Iver from what I recollect.
