This is interesting.



Twenty One PilotsFall Out Boy and Ghost Town would be further towards the top of festival bills if they were decided on online popularity, according to a new study based on social media followings, stats from streaming services and search engine results.

Twenty One Pilots would headline their stage over Jack U and The Neighbourhood, while elsewhere on the second stage Tonight Alive and Basement also would shoot up the line-up.

Meanwhile, Fall Out Boy would headline the main stage all on their own, with original co-headliners Biffy Clyro only appearing halfway up the bill. Red Hot Chili Peppers would also be bumped off the top of the line-up by Imagine Dragons.

Over on The Pit stage, Ghost Town would jump up five places to play just before headliners Mastodon, while Machine Gun Kelly would co-headline The Lock Up stage alongside original lone headliners Good Charlotte.

You can check out the full, re-ordered line-up (via Ticketbis) below.
