As much as I would be happy with Iron Maiden playing, I just cannot see them repeating a headliner 12 months on. Has that ever happened with any of the big festivals?

Dude, you have a lot of time on your hands!

I think Maiden might to do it - they kicked off their tour last time with a festival, and seemed to love it, so I wouldn't rule them out.

Not sure about any UK festivals, but a few years back Nova Rock in Austria, a very similar festival, had linkin park 2 years in a row in 2011 and 2012. I'm sure there are other examples.

Misread that and thought Roy Hodgson was doing a spoken word tour, part of me wishes he was; Bohemia headline slot taken care of there.
Oh joy another game of truth or troll

That's only including bands that have already been announced for festivals, there's probably loads more bands yet to announce and bands which could do it, but are still in talks.

Resigned myself to it not happening so if it does then that's only a good thing, rather than thinking it does happen and being let down for if they say it doesn't

I'd guess grass pop can get away with it a hell of alot more than any UK fest could. I only checked grass pop, because I remember someone saying KISS play every year and as it turns out that was just wrong.
