Got my ticket already Looks like its going to be

Arctic Monkeys or Green Day
Kings of Leon or ?
AC/DC

Radiohead said they'd only play glasto i believe but that seems unlikely now, id welcome them to play on the friday as i dont think arctic monkeys are headlining material quite yet.

Radiohead won't be playing Glasto.. they said it's not green enough for them. It was in the news a while ago.

i want Radiohead!


they even got asked last year but turned it down


i'm guessing


'indie' headliner- Kings Of Leon (was the killers this year)
'Legend'- Radiohead (metallica this year)
'Reunion'- Greenday (rage this year)


if you see the formula i am following there.

however, AC/DC is probs more likely than Radiohead . R'Head will probs do Glasto with Blur


that leaves Bloc Party for V next year


PS. there HAS to be at least one British Headliner next year. So that points Arctic Monkeys in as well as Radiohead

Arctic Monkeys have had TWO ALBUMS!!!

I can't stand it when bands like this have headlined Leeds Festival in the past few years.. Razorlight, Franz Ferdinand, The Darkness (1 ******* album). It's criminal.

I've been hearing Kings of Leon, Green Day and AC/DC this year. Would be good, but nothing would beat Rage Against the Machine last year.

Well I used my special tricks and it took me atleats 2 hours. It's just luck really.

And I just used a lot of back-door links etc, and on as many computers as possible. And continuous refreshing, gets so tedious, but you just can't stop.

Did you not see them headlining the Pyramid stage at Glastonbury last year or the year before?! I'm not even a big fan and bloody hell they were awesome, they could pull Leeds off EASILY.

I'm definitely considering not going this year. I can make you one gaurantee though: Glasvegas will headline the Radio 1/NME tent on one of the nights.

See, I'm thinking that The Cure may well play.. and that's why I'm not ruling out going just yet! As long as I can get back to Manchester on the Sunday night, I'll go but just leave before it gets effing ridiculous on Sunday. This year was definitely lacking something but like a poster up there somewhere, by 06 07 and 08 wristbands would definitely like a little 09 friend... especially as my 06 one looks like it may die any day now.

Blur will do Glastonbury (and I've already got my ticket done, dusted, sorted for that one! Ahh Glasto <3 only 190 days!).

Im going to blame the mud for the crappy atmosphere at this years leeds in comparison to 06 and 07.

And someone else with the last 3 year wristbands, i know a few people with 07 and 08, but not 06 too. Mines always buried undernieth the 07 and 08 ones though so you cant see it

At the moment its my Leeds 08 one that's dominating everything ha. Then Glastonbury 08, then TITP 06, then Leeds 07 and then little ol' Leeds 06 buried right at the bottom there. Poor fella.

I'm not sure whether to blame the mud, where we were camped, the smaller size of our camp this year, the bloody idiots on Sunday night which annoyed me more than usual, our tent getting robbed and broken or just that I was comparing it to Glasto too much haha. Either way it was a bit poo, but I'm HOPING this year will improve. Definitely leaving on Sunday night though, I cannay cope with that crap anymore.. too old for that ******** now (at 19, ha.)

the mud last year did make everything so much harder, which left you feeling a bit like..uhh, which obviously you don't wanna feel like.
so hopefully it won't be like that this year.
anyone else think the strokes might play?

The mud was nice. But I kept on sinking at Leeds if I stood there too long!

I would love for Kings Of Leon to headline. I like their older stuff.

I got my ticket the day after 2008 finished!

Headliners are likely to be AC/DC, Kings Of Leon and not sure about the other, but Slipknot will probably be second, LostProphets self confirmed and so did Fratellis. White Lies, Florence and the machine, Glasvegas and Friendly Fires will be appearing in the NME Tent, and most likely Klaxons.
