  1. Predictions for 2018

    As much as I like St Vincent, would be a bit of a lazy booking seeing as she has headlined solo quite recently, and also with David Byrne. I wonder if we might see Mogwai back and, given the links, if Ezra might be promoted to Woods headliner? Not that I think that 'should' happen... I've basically given up hope of SVE ever playing after wishing for it to happen every year.
  2. Predictions for 2018

    Widowspeak played a few years ago too.
  3. Top 5 Performances 2017

    Top 5: 1. Perfume Genius - stunning performance. Well worth waiting around in the rain for. Will headline in the future I think. 2. Nadine Shah - has upped her game considerably since her last performance two years ago. Really enjoyed the Loud & Quiet interview too. A very engaging character who is not afraid to speak out on important issues. Really funny as well. 3. WH Lung - Rightly getting a lot of love on here. Hard to believe they are so new on the scene. Superb. 4. J.Bernardt - Really got the tipi going early on Saturday. Loads of energy, good songs. One to watch. 5. Nadia Reid - Has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard, and has the songs to match. A real talent. 5.5 (i.e. more than just honourable mention) - TootArd in the tipi for the first extra slot on Saturday night. Was one of those magical End of the Road moments. Not many would have known who they were at the start. We all knew by the end. Really enjoyable. Honourable mentions: JC Satan, All We Are, Aldous Harding (the sound bleed was awful though), Ultimate Painting, Pond (drug dickheads all around us was more than a little annoying), Car Seat Headrest (wanted more vocals), John Smith (Father John Smithy!!), Julia Jacklin, RBCF. Let downs: Goat Girl (had high hopes, just a bit dull), Lowtide (really boring, lost the audience).
  4. EOTR Newbie

    1. Woods stage headliners sound check in the morning around 10.30/11. Pretty certain you can watch, or just listen in from the campsite. 2. It's a surprise!! There are some slots in the tipi after midnight. Usually it is people who played earlier in the day doing extra sets. Occasionally bands/artists do surprise slots at the piano stage, and sometimes on the disco ship. Last year there was also a surprise slot for Wild Beasts and a DJ slot by Jon Hopkins. Not heard of anything like that happening this year so far. 3. Never heard of any problems like this but would suggest you don't leave any valuables in your tent. Friends of the earth do a lock-up facility. 4. This seems to get later and later every year. Tuesday at latest I would hope. 5. No idea I'm afraid.
  5. You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

    Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever Nadia Reid (although sadly looks like may clash with above - annoying when both from so far away and not likely to be back for a while) Aldous Harding Perfume Genius Nadine Shah Pond Carseat Headrest Waxahatchee J Bernardt Julia Jacklin
  6. Cinema

    This year will be my 6th EOTR, and yet to watch a film. Do many people go? Always seems too much else going on for me.
  7. Bands for 2017

    Where has this come from?
  8. Bands for 2017

    Actually gutted now because I genuinely thought Moon Duo were already on the line up, and now realise that they're not there : (
  9. Bands for 2017

    The National was purely tongue in cheek! I would agree, no chance. It's going to be Ezra Furman isn't it.
  10. Bands for 2017

    Won't be Interpol as they are in Manchester on the Sunday. The National are free!!
  11. Bands for 2017

    "Before the capacity increase, had these 3 headlined on the Garden Stage (when it was the 'main stage') - no-one would bat an eye lid." Maybe. But then Mac deMarco was only deemed big enough to sub the garden stage just two years ago. To me, his booking smacks of desperation - they couldn't find a proper headliner for the Woods stage and so just asked one of their good mates to do it. Watch out for Ezra Furman headlining 2018 and then Perfume Genius in 2019.
  12. Bands for 2017

    Serious question for discussion - when and how did modern music get to the point where it is possible for someone as mediocre as Mac DeMarco to get to headline what is a fairly major UK festival?
  13. End of the Road line up? so far underwhelmed.

    I just don't get the Father John Misty love-in. I've really tried but just don't get it. But then I don't get John Grant either. FJM the most over-rated artist since Mumford & Sons?
  14. Bands for 2017

    Any idea why Old Crow Medicine Show are on the playlist?
  15. Bands for 2017

    The skeletons playing connect four have disappeared?! No, sorry - my bad. On Simon's instagram rather than the official one.
