Tbh it may well have been the plan many many months ago but at some point along the line booking negotiations, logistics and covid have caused it to be changed.

Is there anywhere to keep track of current rumors in one handy list while the main site is awol guys? 

Dental has done this list for potential headliners.

Gonna do a RAG recap of who has dates announced to establish that the two (who Neil would mark as a TBC if he still could) not having tour dates yet is no big deal because of how few names are actually on the map so far.

  • Adele (BST exclusive)
  • Arctic Monkeys (R+L)
  • Biffy Clyro (Download)
  • Bruce Springsteen (no dates yet but leaks; rumoured date for Belgium on Sunday - b2b very unlikely)
  • Coldplay (ruled themselves out)
  • Dave (R+L)
  • Dua Lipa (in Norway Sunday)
  • Eagles (in Dublin Friday, London Sunday - 3 days in a row very unlikely)
  • Ed Sheeran (in London Friday, Saturday)
  • Elton John (in London Friday, Bristol Sunday - 3 days in a row very unlikely)
  • Florence and the Machine
  • Foo Fighters (in Manchester Saturday)
  • Gorillaz (Germany Friday, Luxembourg Sunday)
  • Green Day (in UK Friday, Saturday; Dublin Monday - 4 days in a row very unlikely)
  • Guns N' Roses (in France Saturday, b2b dates in different countries very unlikely)
  • Imagine Dragons (UK exclusive show in Milton Keynes)
  • Iron Maiden (Download)
  • The Killers (too soon)
  • Kings of Leon (in Dublin Friday, Belfast Sunday)
  • Liam Gallagher (in Belfast Friday, Glasgow Sunday)
  • Metallica (in Germany Friday, France Sunday)
  • Muse (headlining IOW; in Spain Sunday)
  • Pearl Jam (in Italy Saturday)
  • Rage Against the Machine (R+L)
  • Red Hot Chili Peppers (in London Saturday and Sunday)
  • Royal Blood
  • Stormzy (too soon)
  • The Strokes

I believe that's pretty much it. Given that the green names would all cause fierce arguments on whether they could headline, I think it's easy to expect that more names are forthcoming despite many festivals having announced their lot.

Waiting until after the superbowl is starting to sound a lot like “once coachella is announced”

Surprised that overnight we've now landed on David Guetta, Martin Garrix and Marshmello as likely headliners. 

Doubt Emily can afford all this, but if they dip into the charity pot it'll be worth it.

Those kids never really needed proper toilets anyway.

Too big since she won the BBC Sound of 2022

Did she?

edit: wow she did. Well done to her. I reckon she will at least play somewhere in silver hayes.

Dawn FM slaps. Get Abel on El Pointo.

I used to be a bit indifferent to the Weeknd but his music has been so solid for the past few years I really think he’s near the top of my wish list now.

Can I be really petty?

It took me a long while to get over the Weeknd pulling out of 2013. I was really excited to see him on the Sunday as an alternative to Mumford.

You're in the right place.

Wow, what a few pages to catch up on. Who the hell are SHM? never heard of them? Sam Fender to headline? the Weeknd (who I have at least heard of but his SuperBowl HT show was dull as ditchwater). 

I'd actually like to see Flo headline as she clashed with one of my all time fave Alabama 3 sets in the Glade the last time she headlined.

I'm looking forward to seeing Billie and probably being underwhelmed by the other two headliners, grumpy old man that I am.

That said it is thoroughly refreshing to see the fire of speculation well and truly lit as we move into the pre-announcement period. 

I suspect that Emily's emergency back ups are ready (Flo/FF/Muse/George Ezra etc) whilst she continues to see if Macca and Kendrick can make it. The Covid situation seems to really be hitting the US acts the hardest which must be making this a nightmare to put together.
