  1. 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.
  2. Thanks to you and to @Divein - that's two places I will be checking out come next month!
  3. Chips, cheese and gravy is legit my favourite thing in the world... do you know the name of their company? I MUST FIND THEM!
  4. 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.
  5. 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
  6. So mad at Emily I had made peace with Gaga not being on the poster and now she's gone and thrown this in the mix and opened the door again to the possibility.. I am more than aware I am probably just going to be disappointed twice, though.
  7. yeah Sziget Festival UK replied to me on Facebook and confirmed she's cancelled. I'm not in the same spot as you as there are loads of acts I'm excited for, but Charli was one, they could have made it more clear.
  8. Anyone any idea where Charli XCX has gone from the program page? I know she won't be one that many here will care for but she is a great live performer and I was interested in seeing her!
  9. I disagree, especially considering we have no Colosseum names etc. If I got up to 4 acts a day, on average, I'd be fine. Some days are going to be busier, other days I can spend more time exploring the island and the city.
  10. The schedule is now on the website and the Sunday and Monday have 'coming soon!' in the sub headliner slot. As they are both under DJs could this been an option for some more fairly big rock acts? If there was a couple more akin to Biffy that could effectively headline the festival but don't, that'd be great! I have about 24 acts I can see based on the schedule so far, that's not too bad!
  11. Almost certainly Foos and Ed. I am with the poster who said they may get a bit bored of three hours of Foos but I hope to be proven wrong!
  12. Amen! I used to hide away while watching it at work, now on a Saturday morning I'll openly watch it on a break. I've given up caring if people know I like it. Not to shit on this thread at all but if it brings you pleasure, don't feel guilty about it! It is nice to see people admit to having love for some less 'cool' things though
  13. Saw Will Young, Lily Allen and one of the Four Poofs and Piano in the NYC Downlow. They were a big deal at the time... promise.
  14. She was awesome in the John Peel tent also. Happy with this, bizarre she's got pretty much the same slot though.
  15. This is a great announcement for me, though am assuming many clashes with the four ladies I most want to see.. I'm another who thought Sophie E-B was really great on Acoustic recently, but I missed out on the disco hits at the end due to clashes, keen to see her again along with Birdy (big booking for Avalon, no?), Lissie and Lucy Rose. Also obviously down for Busted if it was a clash-free situation. I can't see me missing many of the main acts to watch them, though.
