    Definitely not just you. Also I think the "what if gender roles reversed??" types have been rightly met with such derision that in an incident like this where it does seem like they're playing up for clicks that it was a woman who got injured accidentally, it's like you risk your argument will be thrown in with that lot and that you're excusing actual domestic violence or something along those lines. Yet now we're seeing alleged 'hypocrisy' regarding the Nick Oliveri situation and some fans pondering the future of Queens and whether they wanna see them again... over kicking a camera. I mean if people wanna disassociate because he's a reckless dick and he's hurt someone and thrown around offensive language then they should, but he has previous for all of that anyway - it was only this year he was in another assault lawsuit iirc. I do think it'll blow over quickly but I am quite taken aback by the reaction. I think most of the fans are united in saying that he should pay handsomely to settle this (just as he shoulda if he succeeded in only kicking the camera) and that he should do some reevaluation and perhaps rehabilitation, but the current social climate has people going wild about tearing down public figures.
  4. Lineup 2018

    I can't believe I just spent my time reading the last two pages
  5. Inmusic Festival 2018

    I think Franz are still in with a shout, though maybe not big enough in 2018 to do so. If not, The xx, Lorde or Two Door Cinema Club maybe. An outside shot is Arctic Monkeys who seem to be announcing festivals in Jan, they did play INmusic in 2013 just before the last album cycle (and the same week they headlined Glasto)...
  6. Taylor Swift

    No Taylor hasn't gone off the boil that heavily lmao
  7. First time Reading goer; have some questions!

    3) I swear Jack Rocks was an 18+ stage? (At least I know that stage was 18+ in previous years) 5) TBH I recommend the portable chargers you can get when you're there. It's something like £20 and you can swap it in all weekend for a fully charged one. It kept my phone, portable speaker and a buddys phone charged pretty much 100%. Only downside is it is only open till midnight so you need to make sure you are fully charged before then! Also, if you keep the charger between years it gets cheaper, and you can use it at most FR fests too.
  8. Taylor Swift

    On the Glastonbury front....is Lorde now a more likely headliner ?
  9. Queens of the Stone Age

    This is clearly an attempt at stage theatrics that he has been doing every night. Though if it was malicious in anyway which it doesnt seem to be then obviously a shitty thing to do, but I don't think that's the case. The Me too movement is so important but i really hope that stuff like this doesnt get looped in and ruin careers while being offensive to those who actually are dealing with cases of assault. I am really worried that an side effect of the me too movement (which i hope continues to out despicable acts of violence of sexual abuse) will be giving excessive power to the internet without thought, even writing something like this feels scary nowadays cause of the absoloute "for and against" nature of argument we seem to be heading to. might just be me tho?

    I was reading about QOTSA thing on reddit and ended up on Muse's page and saw this written in one thread. Says Matt said they'll do some shows in Spain. I thought maybe you could be interested in that https://www.reddit.com/r/Muse/comments/7isy95/i_met_matt_after_the_show_tonight_he_and_dom/dr17ccu/

  13. First Announcement Prediction Game

    (providing it is a smaller one like normal which could be unlikely with the delay) 1. Foo Fighters 2. Stormzy 3. The Wombats 4. Sundara Karma 5. Creeper 6. Jack Garratt 7. Hannah Wants 8. A$AP FERG 9. Jungle 10. Skindred 11. Don Broco
  14. Slam Dunk 2018

    Aside from GC co-headlining this is looking amazing so far. JEW, TBS, State Champs, FYS, Frank Carter, Creeper, Thursday and ETID are all fantastic bookings for me.
  15. First time Reading goer; have some questions!

    Was my first time this year and i was 16 at the time and had such a great time! 1. I camped in orange as we wanted to be fairly close and in the action but didn't want to camp in tiny yellow that everyone has to walk through to get to the other sites. Orange was great but if youre looking for somewhere slightly more peaceful like the others have said i wojuld recommend brown, white is years away! 2,3 and 4 have been covered well so just gonna give some handy advice that i picked up 1) if you want free choice of where you camp and would enjoy an extra day in the great atmosphere, pick up an early bird and go on the Wednesday! I did this year and although nothing was on the atmosphere was so good and was fun with my mates. 2) put your camping chair in your tent when you arent there, it will be gone. trust me. 3) check out the Jack Rocks stage (this year it was just outside the arena) some quality new bands play there 4) spend as much time in the arena as possible, always something good on somewhere 5) take a 20000+ powered portable charger to last you, (im sure you already have a plan for that from your previous festivals) hope this helped and have a great time its so so good
  16. Festival Food

  17. Download 2018

    I swear every tour he’s had the last 6 or 7 Years has been a farewell. Even when they played in 05 I don’t remember Sabbath having a huge crowd. might just be my memory being off. Plus A7X put on an acclaimed performance last time they headlined.
  18. Slam Dunk 2018

    ok thanks so what are GC and jimmy the two headliners?
  19. Slam Dunk 2018

    About 50 bands usually play, but I think most of the big bands (apart from heavy ones seemingly) have been announced already.
  20. Slam Dunk 2018

    There'll be a few more announcements yet.
  21. Slam Dunk 2018

    Frank Carter Good Charlotte and Creeper niiiice, how much more is there to be announced? not too familiar with SD
  22. Queens of the Stone Age

    Ah okay fair nuff. But yeah I agree with what you've said there.
  23. Queens of the Stone Age

    I read that it wasn’t the same stage equipment and he battered some of the lightning and stuff that Muse and 30STM had to use, which is again shitty and he needs to stop blaming it on ‘lost in the performance’ and have a look at himsen. At the same time, people trying to slap a #MeToo narrative on this are clearly reaching and aren’t familiar with the dude’s history.
  24. Queens of the Stone Age

    Yeah I know, on first reading I thought he was trying to come across as though he kicked equipment and accidentally caught her at the same. Looks like he's just saying he mistook her camera for lighting equipment.
  25. Queens of the Stone Age

    Yeah I was going to say. It doesn't seem like a lie as the nature of their stage set up on this tour is that the lighting and stuff is there to be kicked/punched/whatever. The video is what? 15 seconds of the show. It's still a poor excuse though.
  26. Queens of the Stone Age

    He kicks lighting and equipment at every show though.
  27. Queens of the Stone Age

    Bit of a crap statement that. He doesn't appear to kick any lighting and equipment in the video either, just swings straight at her camera.
  28. Queens of the Stone Age

    "Last night, while in a state of being lost in performance, I kicked over various lighting and equipment on our stage. Today it was brought to my attention that this included a camera held by photographer Chelsea Lauren. I did not mean for that to happen and I am very sorry. I would never intentionally cause harm to anyone working at or attending one of our shows and I hope Chelsea will accept my sincere apology.—Joshua Homme"
