Calvin Harris has a date for his Vegas residency on the Friday so definitely the Saturday or Sunday, with the latter surely more likely? 

Could that mean Fridays headliner is to be announced

I'm surprised people didn't call Biffy more before the announcement. Big (PR) show in their heartlands on the eve of a new album? No brainer.

I don't think it's a hard rule that dictates the rest of the line up but I think there will be an effort to bag a few more Scottish acts, given the location.

Given the time of year too, I imagine quite a few artists will be viable. Though that said, surely there's biggest fish to fry than The Killers? Wouldn't R1 want someone like Billie Eilish or Taylor Swift first?

Sly hint from Scott Mills yesterday that Gerry Cinnamon is going to be there, makes sense really. 

If he is there he will do Friday or Sunday

Also disclosure playing Riverside Festival in Glasgow on the Sunday, hopefully means they'll be on the line up somewhere. 

Could they be the dance headliner

He's playing This is Tomorrow on the Saturday. Assuming Friday is a dance day then Sunday's surely most likely? 

Never heard of that festival, thanks for mentioning it, I’m interested!

Could be wrong but for w/e reason, the BBC website lists Biffy's day as the 22nd (Friday), so Gerry might be playing then too

edit: nm, I double checked the other artists and it lists them all as the 22nd right now.

 

If Friday's usually the dance day then yeah, Sunday's probably most likely for Gerry.

Calvin not playing the Friday so that might be a glitch.

Any rumers on the courteeners being there
