    23! 2 + 3 equals 5. Five were a band from the UK with 5 members in the 90's much like the Spice Girls. Victoria Beckham was a spice girl and was married to David Beckham. David Beckham wore the number 7 shirt at Manchester United. Seven was a film with Brad Pitt and Morgan Freeman. Morgan Freeman shares his surname with Martin Freeman who appeared in the Hobbit,. The hobbit was filmed in New Zealand which is next to Australia. Tim Cahill is a famous Australian football player who played for Everton. Everton is a club in Liverpool. Paul McCartney is Liverpools most famous musical export around today. It's obviously a Paul McCartney announcement

    A bunch of young men all dressed in black smashing a car exetremely aggressively on stage... it made me feel so, intimidated and it’s just not what I expected to see on prime-time TV.

    Had a bit of snow but it’s melting fast. Tracks are clear so it probably won’t be with us long. Bitter wind across the Park.

    There was a point last year when I was eating a tin of canned fruit with a broken pair of sunglasses instead of a spoon. A genuine existential moment

    Just bury them before the festival site is set up and then dig them back up when you arrive

    Although I absolutely despise the term - I just had a YOLO moment and bought my ticket After dropping all my plans for this year, under the 'too expensive' category, Werchter was the one I really, REALLY wanted to do. Looking forward to potentially seeing some of you there

    Cheers for the help guys! I need to encourage my mates to buy a ticket soon then! Line up is quality for me. Great mix of genres on the undercard with rock headliners. I can visit Brussels before the festival as well which is a bonus. Heard lots of good things and have it on my list of European cities to visit. Regarding the downvotes, some people are just bizarre. You just have to laugh Agree that the majority on here are great!

    Totally forgot that Clint Eastwood, Ascension or Sweepstakes were Stoner Rock music. Hits from Gorillaz are hip hop, Gorillaz as Damon Albarn is a whole different stuff, but sure you should agree with me that average attender of Sziget considers Gorilaz = Feel Good Inc and Clint Eastwood, not certain Busted and Blue, and of this the management is aware

    This year my wife and me will give a miss to Pukkelpop because we are waiting for the birth of our first daughter at the end of July, so for the first time in 10 years I will wait the first batch of names knowing that we won't be there for sure. I hope that all of you will get a great line-up, and I hope that they will get back Shelter Stage, because I would love to go back to Pukkelpop in the future (don't know when, but I am sure that I will go back there) Good luck with the line-up! Fingers crossed!!

    It's these 6 main stages that they're planning on this year.

    I always only have around 4 or 5 acts on my to see list, and spend the rest of the time wandering and exploring all the hidden gems. It's what makes Boomtown really special, as it's so much more than the stages and acts that are performing. The less pulls you have away from the madness of the micro venues and side streets, the better!

    Travis (I am a big fan) is the weakest rap/trap/r&b act in the last 3 years. It's not a big name in Spain and is not that huge as The Weeknd or Lamar who both have done tours through UK and Europe's Arenas. He was the supporting act in the DAMN Tour in USA for Lamar. Besides that, he didn't have a big big tour in USA, as other like Kendrick Lamar, Drake, The Weeknd or even J. Cole have done. The Killers were at this past BBK Live, and they're also in the lineup of another spanish fest. Liam Gallagher is a big name in UK, but here in Spain is performing at halls for 2k people. In addition to that, he is also performing in another spanish festival which costs half of the price of FIB and is mainly fulled with cheap spanish acts. Pet Shop Boys, like The Killers, were at another spanish fest in 2017. In the case of PSB at Cruilla, which is way smaller than FIB or BBK Live. And damn, the other big names are always the same, nothing new, they're everywhere. Justice (BBK Live '17 + Mad Cool'18 + Cruilla'18). 2DCC (BBk Live'17 + Cruilla'17). Bastille.... well, it's Bastille. Catfish, The Vaccines, Wolf Alice, The Kooks, Izal, Dorian, THEY ARE EVERYWHERE. Always the same names, i don't know what the FIB festival bookers are thinking. And yeah, those names could sell some tickets in UK, but come on, you guys can do it way better than that. Summing up, the headliners are cheap asf, shared with other fests and the rest of the big names just shows how lazy are te bookers of this festival. I gotta admit it, the small names are pretty decent but this was one of The biggest fests in Europe and now..

    Ok I think I love this booking, because it's just going to be an absolute party isn't it? I mean Diplo and Ronson are both absolutely MASSIVE worldwide - I'm still not really sure if they're technically headliners or not (or what that even means really), but I think it's going to be great regardless. Not many things as good as a Friday night headliner that is just fun. Bestival have got me back on board, just nabbed a ticket.

    Kendrick Lamar yesterday was great! His show, the crowd, atmosphere, the liveband (unfortunately hidden behind the screen), setlist (TPAB is my favourite album by him and he only played 2 songs from it, but it wouldn't fit in this show) were all perfect. Very diverse crowd too. Indieheads, older people, parents with kids, college students, hipsters, fangirls, ... Highlight after highlight, barely any time to think, pure exhaustion after the show. Already had to catch my breath after the first song, DNA. What a gig this was! I don't get the reactions that "this is Rihanna all over again". It's almost blasphemous to compare that shitshow with this genius. It will definitely be the highlight of the weekend.

    Broco on NME is a huge disservice to them. Especially if they're at least 4th down.

    We can agree to disagree. You get him and I don’t. Don’t get the popularity of grime and why the likes of Dua Lipa, Kendrick Lamar and Stormzy are the big popular hitters in today’s market. I’ll stick with bands like Nine Inch Nails, Pearl Jam and Jack White. That’s talent and small bands like Creeper get barely any recognition, it just disappoints me.
