  1. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    I kind of feel like the Ed/Sam situation, the Saturday people just got 'lucky' if you want to call it that, that Ed can't play last and it'd be bizarre having someone small on last. Pretty convinced we have Sunday headliner in Taylor, though I would be well up for a big Sunday opener!
  2. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Where are you seeing that and what does it actually say? Cheers!
  3. Sziget Festival 2018

    Even better, cheers!
  4. Sziget Festival 2018

    Thank you! I emailed Sziget and it was hard to understand but I think they said the same haha.
  5. Sziget Festival 2018

    This announcement does precisely nothing for me, but Lana announced as headliner does confirm that I will be doing Sziget from Saturday to Tuesday. on that note, has anyone ever bought a five day ticket but not gone on the first day? And does that cause any problems? My thinking being it costs roughly the same or less than to buy four day tickets or a three day plus a one day, and then if anyone amazing is announced in the A38 I have the option of changing my mind. But they won't be funny if I turn up on the Saturday to pick up a five day ticket which technically began on the Friday?

    (So he's saying so much money would go on Ed, that they wouldn't have as much to spend on other quality artists across the day and stages)

    Undercard just means the acts who don't headline but who make up the rest of the festival roster
  8. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    I think Sam Smith is legitimately the headliner (or at least last on) owing to Ed having a gig elsewhere that night.. so I think the poster ordering is accurate there.
  9. Sziget Festival 2018

    Someone clever talk to me.. does that make Paramore more or less likely for the empty headliner slot? i'd very much welcome Alessia Cara and Friendly Fires too!
  10. Interesting that there’s not much discussion of Ed Sheeran

    Not entirely true.. her new album limped in at No.6, Ed's is fighting for top spot (and has been regardless of Glastonbury in recent weeks) many months down the line. He's massively more popular than her, or Biffy (both of whom I agree could headline most festivals, just not above Sheeran). Anyway, I was in the pit with friends who are also fans and I thought he smashed it. Couple of setlist blunders, but in terms of what he gave to it, can't fault it. I do get though that it is easy to make anything seem amazing if you're down at the front getting involved. Case in point, I've seen Major Lazer from the side and thought they were dull as dishwater, saw them this time many vodkas down and right down the front, it was a massive party!
  11. Sziget Festival 2017

    What are they playing at on the schedules? Rita and Clean Bandit have swapped, Anne-Marie and the Courteeners have swapped. For people whp have planned based on the schedule given this is quite poor. Worse is that one of the tbc slots they made us believe was a subheadliner, nope, they've slotted in Glass Animals and moved Two Door up. They've shot themselves in the foot really as Two Door are a sub sized band and should have been there from the start but they made us believe something bigger was coming. It's cheeky of them.
  12. confirmed food vendors 2017

    Thanks to you and to @Divein - that's two places I will be checking out come next month!
  13. confirmed food vendors 2017

    Chips, cheese and gravy is legit my favourite thing in the world... do you know the name of their company? I MUST FIND THEM!
  14. "Really big secret"

    This thread, What would we do without this place? I am firmly hoping for Gaga, but of all the things mentioned in the thread, I think the most likely is Gorillaz.
  15. Late night non-dance

    That's really interesting because in my first year (2010) I had no idea you could drink your own drink INSIDE a bar and the Kasbah was the first place that I realised you could take your drink wherever the hell you liked, they were like 'you know you can bring that in, right?' I would agree with the William's Green shout, Club de Fromage, Guilty Pleasures etc is always good fun. Also Glasto Latino was a lot of fun. There's definitely stuff to do if you don't want dance/house
