    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.

    Too true. That streak is stuff of legend, they'd be mad to break it.

    Hey folks, I know this is very off topic but I hope you're cool with it as I'm a regular poster here. One time only I swear! Outside of speculating about festivals online, I make music and I have a new song out today. If you like Nothing But Thieves, Muse, that sort of stuff, you might enjoy it. Okay, i'll shut up now. Hoping to maybe see Marmozets, Kasabian, Courtney Barnett, Enter Shikair & Biffy at 4 today!

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

    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!

    Killers on the Sunday. There is music on the Saturday but it's through the Glasgow streets, and it'll be bald, middle-aged men singing about things that happened 400 years ago.

    If you don’t like his videos, don’t watch them! He has an audience that watches (and presumably enjoys) his content and if he enjoys making videos then nobody should have a problem with that. You’re not being forced to watch them.

    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.

    Imagine paying £500 for a Kendrick M&G to find out he went and spent time with some randomers Grandma and all it cost them was a Shepard's Pie.

    My brother is part of the road team for the Libertines this summer and he seems to think Benicassim is a done deal for their summer bookings. Not sure why nothing has been confirmed to the public but apparently there are 20+ confirmations including The Kooks! You heard it here first!

    I wanna throw this one out there: Festival Republic. Three or four years ago I would have counted Melvin Benn as one of my heroes, someone who championed live music and did his best to keep it alive and kicking (albeit while making a tidy sum on the side, God bless). Then Latitude started to slide. We had the GOTR takeover. Then last year FR said they were going to lead the way in promoting female acts and female headliners at their 2018 festivals. We got Solange at Latitude. At Reading we got KoL, Fallout Boy and Kendrick Lamar. God only knows what will rise from the grave of V-Fest. Pathetic. Reading's reputation has been built over the years on what's cutting edge with the kids. that's how it should be. That's what keeps it alive and VITAL. So I get Kendrick, I really do. But I do not get Fallout Boy or KoL. Neither of those bands has anything new to offer, nothing interesting to say. Popular music kicked back in the 60s against what was happening in the world. In the late 70s it did the same, and again in the 90s. Now, when we need our music heroes more than ever, FR seems hell bent one just one thing - making money. Forgive me, I have had way too much to drink. i am probably stating the obvious but I needed to get it off my chest. It's fun to lose and to pretend. RIP Kurt. Cat Man x

    Green Day's latest album Revolution Radio made number 1 spot. http://www.officialcharts.com/chart-news/green-day-hit-number-1-with-revolution-radio-to-have-a-chart-topping-album-at-this-stage-of-our-career-is-especially-gratifying__16647/ Im not a fan of Kendrick and i, I am a huge fan ofrock music. But i am far more disappointed at the headliners been Fob and P!ATD. Kendrick might not be my cup of tea but i can recognize his talent and why people would enjoy his music.

    Hope these help people realise Kendrick isn't generic at all, he's a really interesting artist.

    Outlandish Primavera 2018 theory: Could Paul McCartney be added? - They implied Unexpected would be much bigger this year. Hard to be bigger than that and would be a great stunt to pull off. - There were beatles on the background design of the posters - He's releasing a new record this year. Might prefer to launch it in front of a big crowd but outside the UK. Couldn't announce him yet as needs to tie in with the wider announcement. - The video had 'The End'? on it - a classic Beatles track composed by, yes, Paul McCartney.

    Best stay in lisbon is Alfama I think. Lovely place, many small streets/restaurants/ good places to visit, not that overcrowded. You have access to the metro to Cais du Sodre there. Best stay according to reach the festival may be Belem (which is close to the festival), but that's far from the city center and there not so much to do before that (except the visit of the beautiful monastry). If you like to get fast to the festival (and stay in the city centre) stay close to "Cais Du Sodre". It's the train station where every train to Alges (Festivalsite) departs and and arrives and it is close to Bairro Alto, where you can find many bars, if you like that. There are many hostels in Bairro Alto. It's nice, but it's full of tourists and bars. If you like to stay quiet - stay at Alfama. Near "Rossio" is also a very good place to stay, because it's central to everything. "Also, does anyone know when the whole festival usually sells out?" This year was special - in the last years you where able to buy 3-day-passes until april/may....

    I've reached 500 posts after nearly 9 years. I guess I've not been the most time efficient. I hope you've all had a good weekend, my house is full of colds so I'm knee deep in children's snotty tissues! I'm back at work tomorrow too after a week off... bad timing! Thought I'd use the 500th post to wish you all well, and a quick thank you for putting up with my ramblings! Have an awesome week.

    With Mad Cool destroying the competition this year and Primavera being as big as it is, this is a really impressive line-up.
