My wife will be thrilled if Royal Blood do play - she had to miss YNOT last year cos she bust her ankle which also meant she missed RB play near us in Margate in the summer!

Of course, Rag 'n' Bone Man played the Quarry one afternoon a few years ago, before he were famous. He was great, my daughter got his autograph after his set, lovely chap.

I notice at Kendal Calling that Earache Records have a stage/slot with Pigs x7, Black Futures, etc. That would be nice if they tookover the Squid for one day, especially if they could bring Godflesh.

There's some more fortune cookie stuff on twitter:

One reference to "Girl From Mars" so that's Ash (again).

One mentions "Bittersweet" so that could be Richard Ashcroft or Ellie Goulding or... Panic At The Disco...!!

 

Also, nowt to do with the cookies, but do you realise that The Flaming Lips have announced a few UK shows in the days leading up to YNOT weekend? They do a festival in Ireland the weekend before then play a handful of shows (liverpool, leeds, bexhill-on-sea, aylesbury!). That would be good.

Oh, and I think Tom Grennan will play cos he has a new album out this year and has played YNOT many times before!

Hopefully Richard Ashcroft, would also love to see Tom Grennan there again!

So I guess the truck line up basically confirms BBC as a headliner then, Royal Blood, Bombay Bicycle Club, The Kooks? 
 

Blossoms seems a strange booking for Thursday headliner I always associate that day with noughties acts on the decline like Feeder, Razorlight etc. Would’ve thought sub headlining would be a much better slot, but suppose it’ll shift some early entries. 
 

Plenty on the undercard for me to hopes at Y Not particularly The Snuts and The Lathums, and for my tastes Royal Blood is a huge upgrade to Catfish if that’s how it works out.

Both previous Thursday headliners have been peace and slaves, truck do it differently

Fair enough, well Bombay are playing either way that’s all I’m really bothered about, if they sub and free up a headliner spot even better.

What surprised me most is these "clues" are not exactly subtle are they.  They are pretty much telling you the line up prior to Monday which seems a bit of a shame. 

nah, it helps build up hype on social media and gets people talking about the festival... its a great marketing strategy imo, worked very well last year for truck festival especially; anyways, this is hardly announcing much of the lineup regardless

They do well because its a 20k fest booking the same acts as like 40-50k ones. How they afford it (or how much money Y Not/Tramlines must make) is beyond me

I'm not sure if this ever went ahead, but I'm pretty sure it's at least 30K cap now ( https://www.nottinghampost.com/whats-on/music-nightlife/y-not-festival-capacity-could-817641 ) but yeh, regardless they do pull some decent and fairly big names!

I was saying that Truck's is 20k - also maybe not but they still get headliners like Kendal's, Y Not, Tramlines and almost Boardies too despite being a fair way smaller.

Its because they all share the same booker and/or parent company so just divvy up the acts between them. Saving money block booking acts. Can throw Victorious into the mix too, that is the beast among them.

Yeah of course well aware of that, guess thats how they afford it :D just was saying they do well because they have acts bigger than they should for the price+size
