Here we go then, queue all the whingers coming on saying how bad the line up is and the worst one ever because their favourite band isn't playing...

Khalid, Vampire weekend/Martin Garrix co-headline, Libertines, Foals

There is no mention anywhere as far as I can see of headliners?

Would think Foals def the Sunday headliner but no reason bigger acts for Friday or Saturday can't be added as headliners IMO

Libertines definitely headlining, they announced it on their own twitter, still wouldn’t be surprised to see someone like Ian brown on the Saturday though. Also, the video they posted on FB suggests those are the headliners

Nah, it's objectively speaking way smaller headliners than they usually have.

Last few years has seen RHCP, Kasabian, KoL,, Killers, Lana etc all huge names. This one has Vampire Weekend, Libertines (who's stock has dropped massively in last 5 years and Foals who were the smallest headliner in 2017 last time they played and co-headlined with 2 others.

45 quid with fees for a 4 day festival is dirt cheap no matter how you look at it. Would be interesting to see how many tickets fall into that price bracket.

Cant decide how i feel in all honesty. Libs, Foals and VW are decent headliners but the under card doesn't go far enough for me. But then at 49 euros you cant really complain. 

My issue with the price is how many tickets are going to be available at this price?

Personally I think it's as good if not better than last year.  Thursday and Friday look really good. I am not sure about Saturday for me and Sunday will be great. 

Thursday last year FBS was okay so AVB and Khalid must be a step up. 

Lana was rubbish so vw and the rest look good. 

Foals and Steve aoki are brilliant live and you for the price I don't think you will get much better. 

They are going to try and get the crowds back and I for one don't think it's a bad thing. 

I have spend 250 for szieght and wish I had not bothered looking at this and what else is too come

Paid 42 quid for a Libertines ticket in 2 weeks time, so can’t really complain at what’s on offer for the price here, decent lineup

Similar here. Paid 45 quid for Vampire Weekend and 15 quid for Foals. This is a great price for this type of lineup.

No complaints from me, lumineers are massive for me for personal reasons so seeing them live will be special! Foals 2017 were immense, crystal fighters were too! Plenty of fun acts in between plus a few more to come. Just unsure if I’ll give the kooks a second chance after they got me dogs abuse in 2018 for dragging everyone to them only for them to be average at best 😂

So looking at the pricing, if you get in there very quick the festival ticket is €49 (I get that but fine)

it terms of the glamping for me and my partner does that mean €25 x 2 for camping & €50 x 2 for glamping? so all in all €248 Or would you just pay for clamping (€50 x 2) and the total €198?

That’s a good answer, prefer that one! 🤣 How sure are you? 

Very sure, normal camping is 25, then glamping 50, you don’t have to pay for both. Will end up a bit more than 198 right enough once they’ve added on fees

Sziget is great to be fair but this is unrivalled value. Proper headliners of many genres at €49. I swear its like 6 nights camping too

The fan page clearly got early access to the lineup & prices, and every act they tweeted got announced, apart from LG and Biffy. Both being held back for the next announcement?

I can’t imagine LG being announced now as would have thought he’d be headlining if he was to play! Biffy is still a possibility though

They’re quite cryptic this year, usually they admit they have no idea and it’s all just guess work. In the past they have just released the leaks early if they happen but this year they just put about 5/6 acts in a row who are there and then they put a few who aren’t? Plus they ALWAYS bum off that hinds band on that page and they’re here again this year so I bet they came in their pants when they saw that

Liam's third time in 4 years is nonsence.

The main issue for me now is that we dont know what to expect and when. And how many non-Spanish bands they gonna add.

What price do we think the tickets will rise too after the €49 thing turns out to be a advertising loophole where only the first 10 tickets are that price

No reason for them to tweet wrong acts, they’d clearly seen the lineup and were trying to brag about it. Suppose we’ll find out

They only confirmed headliner we have is Libertines for the Saturday. Would be a bit much for Liam to play 3 times in 4 years but he would shift tickets.
