Scream could be your Sunday night JP headliner.

Is there another former headliner who could make it a trio on JP, or are Editors a lock?

Agree with everyone else - Pyramid sized!!!   I mean Emily seriously over egged that one

Reckon Fatboy could draw a big crowd if up against Kenny

Yeah, in all honesty it might not be 'pyramid sized' but its the perfect opposite with Editors in the JP tent for those that want a more indie/rock night.

Unsure who I'm gonna be seeing to be honest. I can see FBS being special.

Would be nice if Fatboy was closing after a big rock act on the Friday, despite all its faults the Other is bloody beautiful with a good sunset. 

Would be a sideways move, but Royal Blood to play underneath FBS? Would perfectly counter Lana Del Rey and just sticking them 3rd down Pyramid again would be uninspiring

I was wondering if it was a situation you see at other festivals where a dance act plays after a decent sized band. IOW and Latitude have done it in recent years.

It wouldn’t exactly set the pulses racing but something like Snow Patrol with Fatboy straight afterwards would fit.

I think you are maybe on the right track there ...  was just thinking the same.  I remember watching a bit of IOW on TV last year and I think Fatboy did a set after the headliner one night.  It was after either Biffy or George Ezra.

He gets to do his Other  Stage “headline” set but a rock band also headlines as well - that would work well I think?

Really struggling to pull together a string of other subs. Reckon some are tba or being held back.

Fatboy Slim // ???

Dua Lipa // ???

Pet Shop Boys // AJ Tracey

Reckon Royal Blood could squeeze in.

Definitely - still reckon there’s a high probability of Biffy turning up - new album, touring, doing festivals

AJ Tracey is Friday according to BBC.

I’m willing to bet on a decent sized name before Fatboy, perhaps Biffy, with them playing say 9.30 till 11 with Fatboy doing a set afterwards.

Royal Blood don’t look like Friday Unless something changes (wont say why but believe Neil has the same info)

It would be v v surprising if they weren’t as the info ruling them out of Friday places them at the festival later on. And the info is sound.

Played third down JP tent in 2017 I highly doubt it.
 

*edit: wow they subbed the jp tent. I thought they played third down.

No snow patrol on the line up after pulling out last year, maybe opening other stage with their reworked stuff, they’re doing a special lunchtime Sunday set at latitude with reworked ....

I think fatboy is a smoke screen for a surprise. I would have him as a jp headliner.

Thinking about this a bit more, if he's the Sunday I can see this being a Fatboy Slim + Special Guests. Would explain the Calvin Harris rumours, Chems would likely be there, few other big DJs or vocalists. Can see this being one of the 'big surprises' 

Yeah I think you're onto something there. 

Also I get that fatboy slim has played everywhere and we've all seen him, but maybe he's ready to put on a show on the other and I think he will bring the party. Dont see how it's much different than the other dance acts that headline other.

Honestly I'm just relieved I'm not missing anyone while I'm over at the pyramid 😂

George Ezra. Was a great night the whole crowd changed pretty much between them as they are so different but both did fun sets - the closing set idea should definitely become more common I think, IOW have it again this year with chems (a bigger act too so i guess they deemed it a success!)

Biffy Clyro headlining Friday, playing against LDR but Fatboy Slim does a closing set, or the same on Sunday with Royal Blood as the optional band too.

Wasn't that surprised at Fatboy Slim. Sounds like a kinda thing they'd like to do on an anniversary, especially when he's got such a long history with the festival
