  1. Castlefield Bowl

    Always interested in what's going on here as I'm literally a couple of minute walk away!
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I wouldn't call those big pop acts cheap....
  3. Neighbourhood Weekender 2018

    It's essentially hope and glory done right but with bigger bands. Definitely a market for it round here and for me it's a pretty perfect line-up for that sort of thing. Price wise too it's really good - if courteeners did a Heaton park etc again it's £50, if noel did an outside one it's £60+. You've already cleared the cost of the two days and that's without blossoms, editors,coral etc who appeal to those of us who like that,ahem, "durge". That's before the smaller acts like fickle friends, big moon etc who I presume will be even more well known by next summer. I'm personally very much looking forward to it!
  4. Neighbourhood Weekender 2018

    what a shocker this lineup hasn’t gone down well on efestivals eh.... really hoping to get tickets for it, though with only 25,000 available total I’m not counting on it!
  5. Flaming lips

    Saw them at festival number 6 last night. Just a big party - so much fun. Was second time I've seen them, first was Glastonbury 2010. Only gripe is the slowed down do you realize - I remember the full version being my absolute highlight of that sunny Glastonbury. The rest was incredible
  6. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    So good that they do an app! No cribs and bloc party clash and I didn't realise the slow readers club were on (shows how much I've looked at the lineup). I like the sound of this real ale house too! cribs, slow readers club, PSB and flaming lips for me - literally 4 acts, and take in the festival the rest of the time. Maybe bloc party if the gf wants to but not bothered personally
  7. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    It's not us that needs to be prepared, it's our friends running the thing. I was at Y Not and wouldn't expect much from this weekend if it's going to be wet. Have a tow cable ready if you're parking....
  8. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    Just looking at the bus times above I feel this might be a lot more cost effective!! So we're going for that option. Thank you zzzfest for that!
  9. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    Might have to take you up on this! Our plan was to go on the Friday and leave on the Sunday, to only do two nights camping, and I was SURE I'd seen shuttle buses back on Sunday on the listings but now I've gone to book there's nothing. Will let you know!
  10. Festival Number 6 - Portmeirion, Wales

    My tickets have gone to my old flat so hopefully I can get hold of them!! Based on previous years are cribs and bloc party likely to clash completely? I've got no interest in bloc party but gf isn't interested in seeing bands twice and we saw cribs in may!

    Much much much better. Gutting really. Even as a big fan, Glastonbury put me off even considering this weekend when normally I'd have been on it straight away. Just watched take a bow and with the lasers it looked incredible. I would venture that the crowd was shit at Glastonbury which could've contributed, but I guess the crowd being able to jump around and not being knackered from walking around in thick mud helps them get up for it too
  12. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    I think 50% is fair for those who actually went in and stayed on the Saturday like me - a few queues and a poorly designed site isn't reason to get all the money back. It makes sense to get the refund for the day that just didn't happen. Those who felt so unsafe they left / didn't get in at all will need to take further action to claim but those numbers will be lower than those of us who stayed I think
  13. Festival cancelled due to mud

    Eventbrite have refunded everyone today for the Sunday. The email said that they're doing this despite having paid all money to the organisers and are taking 'aggressive steps' to get the money back. They reiterated how their customers come first and that we shouldn't have to wait any longer. Absolutely top notch customer service / PR from them. he's now removed the twitter and Facebook accounts, though he did send some abuse to the radio presenter first, who's screenshotted the private message. Along with one or two other bits: On a side note one thing that's really annoying me is the lack of business sense from the press in favour of sensationalism. 'He's not giving money to Manchester'...it was going to be PROFITS to Manchester. A day of the festival was cancelled, so there will clearly be no profits. So no money to Manchester. It's not hard to understand!
  14. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    Sums it up perfectly! People talk about overcrowding but seem to think going anywhere near the stage (as in past the sound desk) would be risking their lives or something and all just crush at the back instead of spreading out evenly. When I went to go to the toilet (from about halfway towards the stage so not even close) I had to push through really crowded areas to get out but where I was stood there was LOADS of space one thing I would add is that hundreds / thousands just left so that might be why it got better later on

    Now he's saying a junior member of the team had the account and did the ridiculous tweets. Saying it's all him as of earlier this evening
