Does he have any existing connection with the place?

Can’t see him playing either any time soon, to be honest. I’m sure they’ve both approached and been knocked back in the past. Nick’s bigger than ever now so I don’t see him taking it yet.

He's headlining arenas, while EOTR headliners tend to be Roundhouse level.

The Handsome Family's 2022 dates make them look a cert for an EOTR appearance same with Les Filles de Illighadad who withdrew this year.

Wonder if we we will get an earlier announcement this year with a lot of bands announcing shows for that time of year already, is my mind playing tricks or was there one year where the first announcement was in November or something? The Belle and Sebastian year maybe?

The year that Wilco headlined was a November announcement, albeit only about 6 or 7 acts, and this was pre-Woods Stage, so quite a while ago.

Cheers, just checked B&S and Sigur Ros were announced on 14th December

I suppose with Pixies we have technically had an announcement already but still have a feeling we might get another one this sooner than usual.

Hope so. Loved them since the 90's but they've never cropped up on a festival bill I've been at or touring when I'm in England / Scotland.

Just back from watching Lounge Society, Honeyglaze and the absolutely brilliant Keg.

Keg are so good that I'm going to spend the next 9 months going on about them until they play EOTR. They have just have to. 

If they play anywhere near you then go and see them.

They sound a bit like Squid

Yeah, especially with the trademark cowbell popping up! I reckon Keg are a bit more motorik though and Squid don't have a conch player (missing a trick there with the aquatic theme).

If you don't have a cowbell and a trumpet these days then you might as well not bother to be honest!

I wonder if there's a chance that Mitski will headline this. 

Only a few weeks until we find out!

I like her, but she played second from top on the Garden Stage last time and the crowd was decent but not overwhelming.

Has her status changed that dramatically since?

Seems so. The tour she’s sold out is pretty sizeable. Bigger than you’d see Angel Olsen or Big Thief doing. And the tickets went immediately.

Fair enough - none of the shows are anywhere near me so I wasn't really paying attention to the size of the venues.

Still not convinced she'd be the right choice though. She was good in 2019, but really didn't see anything to suggest she should be topping the bill.

Mitski has gone TikTok viral (my teenage daughters are now listening to her). So whilst these shows have sold incredibly quickly, I think you're looking at a different crowd to your standard EOTR crowd. She would still play pretty high up and I would still love her there, but headlining Woods seems unlikely

Big but not necessarily with the EOTR clientele is not much different to Mac DeMarco in past then, right? Or even King Krule? I see what you mean but I don’t think it precludes her.

I think Phoebe Bridgers would be in the exact same category as her too, and EOTR would jump at the chance to have her headline.
