  1. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Pre-sale tomorrow isn't it? Surely they have to announce the headliners. It's not as if its a proper festival, where people are camping, and it's not an established one either. Can't see anyone buying a ticket for Friday and the Sunday of the second weekend, without knowing who is headlining.
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Really? It comes across to me more like a day gig in a field, than a normal festival. They don't even have to play the same weekend. and surely it's gonna be a bit of a problem next summer if Noel refuses to be on the same bill as Liam.
  3. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I think The Prodigy and Noel are obvious possibilities now, after seeing Liam and Stereophonics announced as headliners. Maybe they might be a massive one like Arctic Monkeys, but they don't really need to book a huge name, if they get the bookings across a whole day right. Liam and Courteeners are ideal for a lot of people, Stereophonics day will appeal to a lot of people.
  4. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I was open to the idea of doing a day at this, if one of the days was appealing to me. It's not looking good so far. I'm going to see Liam on Sunday, and although Wolf Alice is a good booking, The Courteeners would have been enough to put me off anyway. Stereophonics are a very poor booking as a headliner. They've been subbing TITP and V Festival every few years, for as long as I can remember. They're now trying to sell day tickets, with their name on the top of the bill. They're one of the easiest bands to catch as well, they are always touring. It'll take an Arctic Monkeys day with a couple of good bookings underneath them, or an unexpected day like the Radiohead one last year to tempt me.
  5. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    https://m.facebook.com/pulpthefilm/ Ah shit, it's actually came from this page, which is an official one but related to the film. I can't remember if the photo they've uploaded has relevance to the film. Would be strange to upload a hint to the film page mind. Hmm.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Could be completely irrelevant, but Pulp have just randomly updated their Facebook cover photo to this. Unusual. Something on the horizon?
  7. 2017 New Music Thread

    This sounds more promising. This is the opening track to Noel's new album. More of an instrumental than a song, but could work really well as an intro. Much more interesting than his single.
  8. Manics

    Going to see them in Newcastle on Saturday, with support from The Cribs. Looking foward to it.
  9. Arcade Fire

    Standing tickets haven't even sold out for Glasgow. Radiohead sold least tickets for TRNSMT festival as well. Shows why they always book the same stuff for T.
  10. Arcade Fire

    £110 for 2 tickets, £19.10 in 'Service Charge, 'Facility Charge' and delivery. What the fuck is that all about
  11. Arcade Fire

    Got 2 for Glasgow. Straight in, after refreshing the page when there was 10 seconds left on the countdown. First gig of 2018 booked, and they're one of the few people I haven't seen who I am particularly bothered about catching.
  12. Arcade Fire

    Considering going to Dublin and making a weekend of it.
  13. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Future Islands would be suitable for an Arcade Fire day.
  14. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Might well go for Florence though, after the criticism he has had this year over female artists. She wouldn't be particularly expensive. Would probably sell well, if they got the rest of the day right.
