Bon Iver with Tame Impala closing the day, yes please!

Tame Impala is big enough to play co for a band like pearl jam. Not big enough to play in a co-headline combo.

Yeah, but Tame Impala needs their visuals/lasers and Jack White didn't as much. They always are gonna have to close a day because that sunset slot from 9 pm and on isn't gonna work for them at all unless a band like Pearl Jam is okay with them not closing the stage like The Cure was okay with Tool closing it this year.

Tame impala before pearl jam was just an example.

Werchter is trying to put a band on the right spot, if the agent is ok with it. So it can happen that a smaller act plays after a bigger act. But not Every agent is ok with that.

At Mad Cool practically every (bigger) band can play in the dark, as it starts and ends much later than Belgian festivals.

Ow, that's too bad!

I think they need the darkness even more with their new lightshow.

Yes, they do. 

I was at that gig in Madrid 18 and I wasn't impressed that much (not knowing them that well), so I went without a single tear shed to the other stage waiting for Pearl Jam, and I was kind of sure I was okay with that experience and Tame Impala was just not my kind of band.

Than I saw King Gizzard and the Wizard Lizard at Sziget the very same year and I was like "mmmmmh maybe with a better setting..." 

And then I saw on youtube the live at Glasto this year and I was pretty sure I watched a different band playing a different show.

Could the who be a potential headliner with a new album ?

In 2006 they played in combo with Muse, they closed the festivalday... I've never seen the field so empty...

They had a lot of opportunities to book them again, but no...

That video doesn't justice to the sky at all cuz I was there aswell (check when the person taking the video turns back to watch the crowd for a better understanding). The sun was already down when they started for starters and it got darker by the minute (check the video 5 mins in) and you'll see the difference. The sunset-spot that had bands like Nick Cave or Arcade Fire playing in previous years gave shows in near daylight for most of their show and played in full darkness in the last 5/10 mins or so, which is not ideal. They'll probably close the day after some band like RHCP (who allowed Editors behind them in 2016).

Monday Firenze Rocks "festival" will reveal its first headliner for 2020, maybe we can excpect a name that could fit also for RW or other festivals?

They booked Editors first, Blur was supposed to play before them. Blur cancelled their summer plans. They contacted RHCP if they want to fill the gap. They did. The contract with Editors was already signed, and closing the day was in that contract. So no, allowed is not the correct definition. Werchter had the luck RHCP wanted to fill that gap. 

They announced as only festival RHCP some time later. The other festivals came all together with RHCP a few weeks earlier.

My prediction is that it will be someone who could announce whole tour, but Firenze will be only "festival" like Ed Sheraan last year (+Sziget)

Gotcha, okay. Otherwise RHCP would've probably asked to close, I assume?

With Albarn releasing a new project next year, I don't have high hopes for Blur but who knows. The guy released a second Gorillaz album whilst he was on tour with Humanz.

Greenday and Weezer

European tour presale doesn't start till Tuesday compared to Monday in the US so would make sense if they had more to announce on Monday

My thoughts also. 99% it's Green Day

Looking at the Facebook page, Firenze are announcing for the 11th June. Greenday already have shows 10th 13th and 14th. Is it likely they'll do 4 shows in 5 days?

It's unlikely but not unknown. Plus, the show on the 10th is in Milan so very little travelling involved.
