Lil Baby and Not3s are quite big draws and I think R&L has a bit of a weird crossover phase in effect… they’ve nicked a lot of artists that would be huge draws at places like Wireless.
Post Malone, Lil Uzi Vert, AJ Tracey, Anderson .paak, Mura Masa, Lil Baby, Gunna, Fredo, Stefflon Don, Slowthai, Gunna, D-Block Europe, Headie One, Octavian, Not3s…
A separate slightly smaller festival would sell out based on that line-up alone. There’s just a very weird overlap because practically nobody who likes any of these artists will want to see Bowling for Soup or The Wombats or even one set from the Shikari boys and obviously the same applies in reverse
But yet they’re also miles away from the kind of eclecticism and diversity that festivals like Glastonbury achieve so it’s just a bit of an odd hotpot. Even Coachella seems more balanced than R&L. And by more balanced I mean they don’t put the Wombats on the mainstage in 2019
