Don't often post here but I thought this was worth mentioning. So make of this what you will but, essentially, I spoke to someone last night (a good friend, very nice person who I couldn't really see lying about something like this) who is mates with a couple of the guys who play for Rex Orange County... They said that they'd been shown the poster from the guys. They confirmed it was Kendrick (not that we didn't already know that) and they also named Dua Lipa and The Strokes as playing. Could be complete bullshit, could have just been shown a fake poster and been confused (I didn't think artists were actually sent the poster to be honest), but I thought it was worth mentioning to get people hyped up for poster day.

Hey! Joey JoJo!

another sure fire sign of its arrival is people posting what they are up to now ....and  saying it will and why it won't be arriving :)

I think I've been walking to walk for the last couple. I've sinced moved and now I drive - does that mean I have to walk 3 hours to work to get the poster?

Yep :)

I was on the loo for 2015. For some reason I remember hearing my phone receive the notification from outside the room. 
 

2017 I remember waking up to see that the lineup had been released. It must have been early because I remember waking my flat mate up and then going back to bed.

I don't think it's unreasonable to ask you to sit on the loo for the rest of the day then is it?

How long before the announcement do efests usually post the infamous beds tweet where we all lose our minds? I can't remember seeing it last year and I have push notifications on

I feel like we got it about 40 minutes before it was announced? It was about 8am they released it, I think?

Usually night before but last year maybe it was like an hour before.

Fairly certain that Neil had wind of something the night before last year and tweeted half the usual "stand by your beds" or something else to suggest it was imminent?

It depends. Sometimes the night before. Sometimes a few hours before.

Without spilling, I think Neil gets a heads up from a contact in the guardian when it’s on its way. (Neil feel free to tell me to delete this if this is something secret).

I remember someone said for 2014 that the reason the poster looked like this is because they made a quick decision to release the lineup.

Metallica signed the dotted line in Feb and they were waiting to get them in the bag before releasing anything. Obviously they couldn’t announce them so they had to generate a poster with “special guests”.

This is actually offensive to my eyes.

Just had a look at the Thingy

The main poster announcement is gradually getting early, from 2010 onwards the dates are - 14.04 - 14.04 - 27.03 - 04.04 - 14.04 - 29.03 - 30.03 - 15.03 - ? - and obviously last year was the earliest ever.

This year there were two headliners announced by 15.12 - almost two months earlier than the previous earliest (08.02) in 2008.

While I understand there is no pattern - taking into account all this info along with the fact that it’s the 50th and we already realistically have the third headliner, I can’t see it being much longer until the first poster drops.

Just adding to this, I know when I mentioned my mate had seen the poster and a lot of people said they thought the Eavi were the only people to see it until release day, I spoke to someone else I know yesterday who I know is 100% credible and works close with the festival (he’s got a lot of my close mates into the festival on artists bands that get handed back a couple weeks before the fest) and said he’s also seen the poster in the past week and that it definitely needs to be sent to management of artists for approval, hence why there’s a few people saying they’ve seen it now. He didn’t mention when it was getting announced but the fact that it’s all ready and management have seen it is a good sign right?

Nah this is making me too excited now.

I'd plump for a morning announcement so if it's going to be this week then it's probably better to focus on tomorrow than today...

I'm going to be in The Royal George pub tonight.  For one of the previous first poster drops, I was also in The Royal George.  Surely it's a sign? 🤪

Yes it is

You were on the loo without your phone? Disturbing behaviour.

Lack of adult supervision on the thread.

Not saying it's your fault but.....
