Aren't NIN basically locked in for the Primaveras next year?
Ah forgot that
Anyways, barring any reunions or classic rock returns, I’m thinking this is our pool of headliners for 2021.
Adele Arcade Fire Billie Eilish BTS Drake Justin Timberlake Kendrick Lamar Post Malone Rihanna Sade
I think there’s a good chance we’ll get two female headliners next year with Rihanna looking the most likely of the bunch. Kendrick could come back with 4 years between appearances but I feel like if anybody is up next for the rap headliner slot, it’s Post Malone. After this year’s lineup, I also think BTS’ chances have gone up after this years lineup considering the effort to bring in more Asian acts. Arcade Fire are in an interesting spot too, are they still headliners or could they possibly sub?
I’m guessing, however, the crowd who’s been struggling with lineups as of late are REALLY not going to like next year’s headliners.
Is the XX big enough to headline? I know they were a sub in 2017, but I think their new album will have to be huge for them to get the bump up. Fingers crossed because I'd love to see them on the fields
Honestly I'm at a loss for a rock headliner. I feel incredibly confident that Billie Eilish will headline after the release of her next album in 21 or 22. All of her arena dates in 2020 are currently sold out.

I could see the Red Hot Chili Peppers slotting in nicely for some reason
