Might as well start this now... predictions for bands/headliners?

I reckon' Jimmy Eat World or Weezer could be a decent shout, maybe something surprising like Sum 41?

Please not Jimmy Eat World, were dreadful at Reading in 2017. Personally would love Don Broco or Frank Carter and Sum 41 would be good but not sure I can see it. Still think Deftones could be a good shout because James did mention them several times in a podcast recording.

Jimmy eat world in front of an appreactive crowd is a very different prospect to a reading crowd that knows a few songs at best.

Jimmy Eat World have been boring as hell the last two times I’ve seen them. Headlining Slam Dunk they played a dull set. I saw them in January at a packed Rock City and they were so flat again. Their setlist choices in recent years seem to really dip in the middle.

Booked tickets, do not really mind who they book as we will see great music but if they fancy asking back Nothing But Thieves that would be sound.

I can second this. I remember seeing them at Reading 2014 I think it was and they were awesome however watching them at Open’er and Southside in 2017 they were dull as dishwasher and I love the band but they seemed to have lost their mojo.

Would Ceremony play? Think they would be a great band for the Axiom

Would love them to play but surely more of a band for The Cave? Either way I think they could play just if they want too. It's been too long since they've played over here (think it's been like 4 years)

Imma go for Frank Carter, Alexisonfire, Neck Deep

I hope that people who not only think it will be Deftones, but Deftones playing White Pony in full, like disappointment

All aboard the hype train, my money is on Neck Deep and Frank Carter headlining for sure.  I also have a feeling this might be the year that Gallows return to the Trees.

I'd like to see Idles headline for sure if they aren't too big by the time Trees 2020 rolls around, I'd also love Feeder to make an appearance they always put on a stellar show, and Skindred would probably go down well too

I think Black Peaks will play a high main stage slot next year, also seen a lot of Metz and Venom Prison merch at this years festival, hoping they both play next year.

I feel like this year especially opened up the cave for some of the heavier hardcore acts out there. I don't think it would be too far of a stretch to see someone like Knocked Loose play, I think they would go down really well.

What makes you say that? Thought it was a pretty standard affair to be honest. Still, I think Knocked Loose ain't a bad shout for next year. Could see them mid/high on The Cave easily.

I felt as if there were some noticably heavier bands this year ie Lotus Eater on midday.
