Time to get the ball rolling with this.... announcement could be anytime now.

Who we thinking?

Headliners are generally mid to large sized acts that aren't necessarily on an album cycle, so kind of tough to predict. Flaming Lips are back around next year so that might be a shout. Maybe someone like The Wombats, Liam Gallagher, Editors.

HAIM might be a possibility if they're not doing All Points East.

Presumably Ian Brown is in the running. Pet Shop Boys also a contender, although maybe the Bournemouth date makes that difficult.

As much as I would love it to be HAIM, I'm 90% certain they have an album coming out next year, so I can imagine them getting a smaller slot at bigger festivals and still getting the same exposure. I'm thinking maybe Bastille, Scouting for Girls and someone like Olly Murs? I'm rubbish at predicting these things though.

So, I've done some digging by stalking the Victorious Instagram Page and figuring out which verified artists they're following who (to my knowledge) haven't played before. 

I realise this isn't the be-all and end-all, but it could give us some indications of what to expect: 

- Haim

- Foxes

- Wolf Alice

- The National

- Liam Gallagher

- White Lies

- The New Faith

(They're also following Bjork, but I'm discounting her based on size). Thoughts?

Could see Foals headlining one night. Doesn't look like they're at Reading/Leeds and they're definitely a good fit for it in terms of being the right size and genre.

Why's that then?

Supergrass are a shoe-in for Truck this year (the Oxford connection). Doesn't necessarily discount them, from Victorious, but I can't see them headlining any other mid-size festivals. And they also had the Glasto Pilton Party slot at the end of the summer, so I'd say they're due a Glasto-announcement shortly.

Assuming that means by default Haim are out too.

They ain't been announced for IOW have they? 

Everyone on here

Unless you've got specific info to suggest Supergrass are doing Truck I'd say that's a bit of a wildcard and not very likely if you look at the profile of the crowd. The bulk of Truck's audience are 16-20 years old, Supergrass wouldn't be a huge draw for them.

they normally have some older acts too, tho - and with Supergrass being from Oxford, it's a good fit.

Liam and Foals would be a great couple of headliners. 

I quite enjoyed only going for a day and a half last year so would be quite happy if it were those and someone I'm not interested in.

Liam is doing Reading/Leeds that weekend so won't be him. Foals would be an obvious choice, then at least one relatively 'nostalgia' act. Not sure who that could be, Chemical Brothers? Not sure where else they are that weekend, but they managed to get The Prodigy so why the hell not? Foals, Chemical Brothers then maybe another, older rock act/indie act. Pet Shop Boys could maybe do it instead of Chems, but can't see the both of them there. Noel to play again? Biffy Clyro?

The pool of aged, indie headliners must invariably run out and there to be a repeat at some point.  Would love to see Flaming Lips back to co-headline the Friday with an upcoming band like HAIM or Idles.
