  1. Electronica/Dance

    Yeah. Obviously condolences go out to friends and family, but the electronic music scene in Birmingham is absolutely dire right now. It used to be huge and never caught up with legislations and the times Searching Midlands on Resident Advisor events is painful.

    Anyone going to Simple Things? Think I'll be spending most of my time at Lakota.
  3. Knebworth 2018

    It's going to make a return, OKAY?
  4. 30k more tickets for Glastonbury in future?

    Oh fuck no. Last year seemed way too busy. We'd be waving goodbye to any chance to get into the SE corner late at night.
  5. Primavera 2018

    Would love Pearl Jam but I guess they will be going for the big festivals. What about Nick Cave?
  6. 2019 Headliners

    Just give me Daft Punk, Elton John and Cliff Richard.
  7. Primavera 2018

    I'll always regret not seeing Girls live What sort of stuff does he play solo? If he plays City Girl I'm all for it.
  8. The National

    Much prefer the setlist for the 17th. I'm going to the 2nd night in London so I hope it's not a complete replica of last nights setlist.
  9. Beyond The Tracks

    Managed to snag some tickets for yesterday. Chuffed to see Slowdive. Really great little festival. I thought there were enough toilets, excellent selection of drinks, food stools were decent (perhaps could've done with something sweet) and the staggered stages was a nice touch, especially with local bands playing the smaller one.
  10. Justice out, Soulwax in!

    Yikes. This will piss a lot of people off. "production and technical issues" is such a frustrating excuse.
  11. LCD Soundsystem....

    Same here. It's a bit of a slow burner, but once How Do You Sleep? kicks in then that's when the LCD magic starts for me.
  12. Green Man Festival 2017

    My first time too and loved every second. Maybe someone can confirm but I believe the beer prices were increased by 50p this year?
  13. Electronica/Dance

    Yeah, Printworks is very underwhelming. Motion has a better line up and much better value for money.
  14. Electronica/Dance

    Really, really want to become a freerotation member. If anyone can help you'll be my friend forever.
  15. Green Man Festival 2017

    Great stuff. Although a bigger Oh Sees and Ryan Adams clash than I was hoping.
  16. Green Man Festival 2017

    I'm driving down from Warwickshire on Thursday if anyone needs a lift. Also driving back late Sunday/early Monday.
  17. Which festivals will sell out quicker next year?

    Probably Boomtown, Green Man, End of the Road. These usually sell out anyway, so expect more demand.
  18. Green Man Festival 2017

    Does that mean you have to buy a lanyard with the times on? if so that's a douche move.
  19. Green Man Festival 2017

    Sorry to hear that, man I'm not going solo, but I'd be more than up for a meet/several beers.
  20. LCD Soundsystem....

    Unpopular opinion: Everything about this LCD Soundsystem album reeks that it's going to be their worst. Still don't think that the singles are up to scratch with their older stuff.
  21. Green Man Festival 2017

    Has the special guest slot disappeared? (if there ever was one officially confirmed)
  22. Primavera 2018

    Smashing Pumpkins would be sweet. I reckon Yeah Yeah Yeahs would headline.
  23. Green Man Festival 2017

    Yeah! Stewarding is definitely better than not going at all. Also thanks to whoever updated the clashfinder a few hours ago
  24. Electronica/Dance

    Think I might give this year a miss after all. Group haven't really pulled their fingers out and the Dekmantel and Paradise nights are now £50? How many tiers do they want to add? Fuck that. I'll hold out for Printworks S2.
