    def only doing Gaslight's day. hard to budget out festival money for bands like Menz, ManOrch that I can catch on headliners for $30. going to openly sob for Gaslight and can't wait

    I can't believe we're at the point where Travis Scott is a headliner. Yawn.

    I'd be pumped for Em, Jack, YYYs, NERD, Chvrches, Wolf Alice, Manchester Orchestra, Japandroids, 3eb and Middle Kids. Hope theres some crossover with Bonnaroo.

    If Gaslight, Menz, Japandroids, ManOrch, Alvvays, 3EB and Brockhampton end up on the same day, which I know isn't going to happen I would definitely go

  7. Wonder who the covered up artist is. I wish it was The 1975, seeing as MFC comes out June 1st, but I think they'd be higher up.

    It's chaos. Be kind. Prestigious

    Eminem, Yeah Yeah Yeahs, N.E.R.D., CHVRCHES, Gaslight Anthem, Post Malone, Silk City, Manchester Orchestra, DRAM, 2 Chainz, Japandroids, Kelela, Third Eye Blind, Brockhampton, Amine, Alvvays and Menzingers sounds like a really fun weekend.

    Dangg, major props to whoever called Gaslight Anthem playing 59 Sound in the original thread about lineup hints (high-top sneakers & sailor tattoos)

    Agreed, I didn't know Travis Scott was THAT big. Tried to get into him the other day and he didn't do it for me.

    Holding out hope that this is only one of several Gaslight Anthem performances this year. Be on the lookout for a Riot Fest date, methinks.

    Assuming the blocked out name is LCD Soundsystem based on being able to see the tops of the first 3 letters

    EDIT: probably not them but gonna do some digging.

    LCD isn't getting billed below Halsey, YYYs, or NERD. Lets be real.

    This is a really good line-up, IMO. I would love to go this but I’m sure I won’t end up there. Just hoping I’ll be able to see TGA this summer at some point.

    Really hoping that Manchester Orchestra / Mezingers combo hits firefly this year. I’m also a sucker for Post Malone.

    If Phoenix could top line last year Travis Scott easily can

    My feelings exactly. If Phoenix could headline in 2017 and Vampire Weekend in 2014, then Travis certainly can too.

    You'd be surprised how many teenagers are obsessed with Travis Scott

    he got very close to the same reaction kendrick did on their tour

    You have to remember this is NYC. A band like Phoenix can easily pack Madison Square Garden (FACT: they actually did sell out MSG with a surprise appearance from Daft Punk almost eight years ago).

    travis scott is still significantly larger, that was the point. not that phoenix is small but that travis scott is much larger

    True, but that was 8 years ago, when they were touring at the height of their career with an album that eventually went platinum. On there next tour 3 years later they played Barclays Center and it was far from a sellout (think I read 9k tickets were sold). Then last year for Govball they toured on an album that was a complete dud commercially. I think its more shocking to see Phoenix on top of a bill in 2017 than Travis Scott on top in 2018, no matter what city.
