The Sherlocks caught trying to bump themselves up festival bill

The Sherlocks are playing the Y Not Festival this year. Although they’ll be on slightly earlier in the day than you might have thought if you’ve been looking at their Twitter feed.

Y Not announced its 2018 line-up earlier this week, posting an image of a poster detailing the bill. But when the same image was posted by the Sherlock’s shortly afterwards, there was a slight difference. They appeared to have moved up a level in the festival’s billing, while The Amazons had moved down.

If you’re going to taper with an image like that, you might as well make yourself a headliner, rather than trying to sneak your band into joint third billing. Various people subsequently did just that for the band, doing their own Photoshop work to place The Sherlocks at the top of Y Not and other festival’s line-ups. Other people on Twitter claimed to have been blocked for questioning the band about their own tweak of the Y Not poster.

The band eventually deleted the offending tweet, but last night made light of all the hoo haa, posting a new update saying, “Not sure what all the fuss is about with Y Not Festival’s line-up. Has anyone seen Glasto?” They then presented a doctored Glastonbury line-up poster with themselves placed at the top. They also had to add ‘2018’ to it, because it was a poster for the 2003 edition of the event. There not being a Glastonbury 2018.

The Sherlocks began a UK tour earlier this week. They hit London tomorrow night, starting a twelve night run at Wembley Stadium.
