Headlining in Italy doesn't necessarily mean you headline in the UK. Im not saying they cant headline festivals in the UK, just they would be an out there shout to top the bill at Reading, which in the main sticks to mainstream headliners.

Will be interesting to see what kind of crowd they draw at APE, I think thats more their scene than R&L but if they struggle to sell well in central London, no chance they can headline Reading

This seems wild to me. Might just be my echo chamber but Tame Impala seem like the second most reading band after AM. They seem to appeal to rock fans loads, are most rap fans fave rock act, and used relentlessly on tiktok. They might struggle at APE because of the pretty weak undercard, king giz definitely should have been on their day, but on a reading day would probably be the first day to sell out

Meanwhile, no one I knows could name one of their songs

I suspect you’re closer to a larger attending demographic than me, I just can’t see them being a mainstream ticket shifter

Thinking Download is more likely for them. But it could go either way tbh.

I’m thinking they’ll be more suited to R&L and it’s Downloads anniversary next year I think they’ll go big on heavy acts like Metallica, RATM and Slipknot but yeah could go either way as Metallica could decide to do their own shows and RATM, Slipknot and MCR would still be massive for Download.

MCR for Download, Kendrick for L+R. Kenny's gonna be everywhere next year.  

Don’t think it’s a question of Kendrick or MCR as I think R&L could get both but if R&L get Paramore I don’t think they’ll get MCR. Looking like Travis Scott and Post Malone will also be around next year so could be 1 of 3 between Kendrick, Travis Scott and Post Malone.

Updated prediction due to Kendrick’s new album and that it’s looking like MCR may have new music out as well. I do think it’ll definitely be one Kendrick or Travis Scott but I’m not 100% on which one yet. 

The 1975 / Machine Gun Kelly

Kendrick Lamar / Paramore

My Chemical Romance / Sam Fender

Kendrick feels like the obvious booking. New album and it gives L+R a little more distance from the Astroworld shit.

I'm 20 and would say Tame Impala is a pretty solid pick.

Could we see Sam on MSE? He's just sold out his finsbury show and might be releasing a new album before next august

Nah, not MSE, but seems like the safest booking imaginable for MSW.

Seeing how R&L is a rock festival again now after this year eh… 

The 1975 / Sam Fender 

Paramore / Doja Cat 

My Chemical Romance / Machine Gun Kelly

I feel like it needs a Kendrick, Eminem, Post or Travis

Sunday // Blink 182, Red Hot Chili Peppers, The Killers, Muse, My Chemical Romance, Metallica, Greenday, Kings of Leon

 

MSW

Friday // Doja Cat, AJ Tracy, Lizzo, Chase & Status, Olivia Rodrigo, Lily Nas X

Saturday // Royal Blood, Courteeners, Queens of the Stone Age, Imagine Dragons

I’d snap your hand off for that which probably means it’s too good to ever be true

It’d be nice, wouldn’t it. Probably take MCR out, move Paramore to their position and have Kendrick headline Saturday.

This is abysmal for my taste. 1975/Fender are okay but not top of my list by any means, don't give a shit about the other 4

I’m hoping to see some more MCR dates on the calendar beyond this summer run, hopefully it’s one of or combination of DL, R&L and a UK arena tour in 2023

I think DL is a real possibility. Copping said in an interview last year that he had made an offer for them to headline but they couldn’t do it (I assume because of the MK shows getting announced) so he’s definitely keen to get them. I’ve said it many times but I think they’d get a hero’s welcome at DL these days.

Ooft, very much not to my taste at all that, as much as I do like The 1975, Sam Fender and Doja Cat, it seems very unbalanced - and can't really see people my age and younger wanting to spend £300 for that line-up ngl.

I think MCR go Download 2023 > Jan/Feb 2024 UK Arenas > R&L 2024 personally. Download can make a go of being their "only UK show of 2023" or whatever, then you immediately get the arena shows in for the people who couldn't do Download before ending this album cycle at R&L.
