Full line-up will be announced.

A few chart names in there I believe and a few up and coming acts that have been targeted as ones to watch for this year.

But that's as much as I know for sure. Until Friday.

John Power played at Hartlepool Maritime Festival last year before Lightning Seeds and for the first time ever played some Cast songs. He had never ever done this before.

If they had a number one album within the last 2 years that means very likely to be 2008 but possibly 2009. So, I reckon so it's either Radiohead, REM or Basshunter.

However, judging by the level of success/fame by the majority of previous headliners my guess is one from The Ting Tings, The Script, White Lies, Paulo Nutini, The Kooks or The Feeling.

You've got them the wrong way round London - but I admire your sentiment.

The Hoosiers are truly dire.

To be fair, for me the best part of going to MML is during the day seeing bands you've never heard of that take you by surprise. I remember one year my mate dragging us to the Empire to watch Editors, who I'd not heard of at the time, and they were amazing.

I think two years ago Wild Beasts were on in the Empire early afternoon with about 10 people in there but they were unbelievable.

I would prefer a good headline act mind and I think that building it up for the Hoosiers announcement is a bit of an own goal.

It's difficult to compare MML and SIRF as Stockton is mostly local bands with usually very good headline acts each night and a couple of half decent support slots whereas there are so many stages at MML I can imagine that a lot the budget gets swallowed up paying for the many, many gigging bands which means there's less for the headline act.

Saying that, I did think that they were getting there with Ash and the Zutons but that's two steps back with the Hoosiers I'm afraid.

Haha what a complete joke. The worst headline act in MML history there a kids band that's why u dint see on the line up for proper festivals. I've been saying for weeks that sumthin had gone wrong hence the delays in the line up. Much prefer they said yeh so n so pulled out and this was the best wd could do

I have convinced myself it will be The Klaxons.

Rob knows everyone hates The Hoosiers cos they are a big pile of horse XXXXXX!

It can't be The Hoosiers [rle]

Yea, to be fair I've never watched a headliner.

Usually I don't care because there's loads of other stuff to keep me occupied, but this year looks so weak so far compared to the last few years.

I can't see anything this year to suggest we're going to get an Editors@Empire, Nine Black Alps@Town Hall or a Frank Turner@The Central.

However, there's still enough there for a decent day out I suppose. I'll be going along to see The Chapman Family, Detroit Social Club, Chapel Club, Johnny Flynn and Erol Alkan.

Built up to think it was the Klaxons to find out it's the Hoosiers. I feel your pain.

Oh dear MightyDuck.

Someone gave me and a mate free tickets to see a band at Empire a few years ago, we couldn't be fussed going.

It was Arctic Monkeys.

Seen them a couple of times since though so it's fine now.

I Am Arrows should be good though, the albums pretty good.

It's Andy Burrows band (The old drummer from Razorlight who used to have loads of chew with Johnny Borrell!).

There is no way The Hoosiers will be at the top of this line up.

It's just not going to happen.

While the news of The Hoosier's headlining is shocking, i am more flabbergasted that anyone can actually listen to TFM!
