  1. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    On another note - new Stereophonics album just confirmed for 3rd November. Tour in Nov or Feb, big festivals over the summer? (They seem to have been headlining smaller ones this year rather than subbing at big ones).
  2. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    I dunno, I just feel like Daft Punk would do their own massive shows, maybe do a couple of festivals like Coachella and Glasto. I don't see TRNSMT as something they'd be hooked on. Maybe a GSS show would suit - their big own show. I feel like for TITP, plenty people put Daft Punk as someone they'd like to see booked (understandably) and DF saw that and thought "we can't get them but we'll book lots of dance instead", but in reality there's a big difference between booking Daft Punk and booking David Guetta, Disclosure, Disciples and Annie Mac.
  3. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    Love how DF always include Daft Punk as if they could get them if they reformed.
  4. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    2011 was next level stuff. Headliners everywhere.
  5. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    200% especially as the Phonics should have a new album out by then

    Fatherson have that Scottish band aspect going for them though - sold out the Barrowlands which I don't believe MK or LtB have done. Acts like Vukovi, Lafontaines, Gerry Cinnamon, Lewis Capaldi and Be Charlotte (all scottish) got great crowds this year, all examples of Scottish crowds turning up to support their local acts.
  8. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Going for a big full on prediction nice and early. Will be very pleased if half of these come off, even if they are in massively different positions by then, lots can change in a year. Also, I banked on King Tuts and Jack Rocks both being a little bit bigger in size of set up and in size of acts booked. Friday Main Stage: Arcade Fire / Courteeners / Haim / Jack Garratt / Wiley / Declan McKenna King Tuts: Fatherson / Marmozets / Kaleo / Mallory Knox / Draper / Mt Doubt / Allusondrugs Jack Rocks: Pumarosa / Pronto Mana / Blaenavon / Electric Guest / Rascalton / Declan Welsh & the Decadent West Saturday Main Stage: Foo Fighters / Liam Gallagher / Chvrches / Wolf Alice / Christine & the Queens / Nothing But Thieves / The Amazons King Tuts: Frank Carter & the Rattlesnakes / Peace / Colonel Mustard & The Dijon 5 / Frightened Rabbit playing Midnight Organ Fight in full (10 year anniversary) / Puppy / Mickey 9s / Soak / Model Aeroplanes Jack Rocks: Indigo Velvet / We Were Promised Jetpacks / Black Foxxes / Hunter & the Bear / Nieves / Kwabs / Lowly / The Youth & Young Sunday Main Stage: The Killers / Royal Blood / Imagine Dragons / Kaiser Chiefs / Dizzee Rascal / The Horrors / Honeyblood King Tuts: The Twilight Sad / Lonely The Brave / And So I Watch You From Afar / Prides / The Xcerts / Lawrence Taylor / Foreignfox Jack Rocks: The Sherlocks / Lewis Capaldi / Sacred Paws / Moose Blood / Holy Esque / Saint Phnx / Huxtable I would really like to see some little surprise sets like the Frightened Rabbit one I included to make things a little bit more unique. Would add something extra to the festival

    People pissing in crowds is grim. Go before the band begins, hold it, or work out how to find your pals again and nip out to toilets
  10. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Went for all three days, though only made it from about 7 after work on Friday. Really enjoyed Radiohead, Belle & Sebastian and Black Honey on Friday. Fair bit of movement in the crowd but didn't really bother me too much. Really easy queuing for pints and food, though the munch wasn't amazing. On Saturday I saw Circa Waves, Stormzy, The Kooks, Georgia Ezra, Sundara Karma, Catfish & the Bottlemen, The Lafontaines and Kasabian. Highlights were Lafontaines and Catfish. Castfish in particular really worked the crowd and played well, can see them stepping up to headline slots in a couple of years. Site was a lot more rammed than friday, a lot more time waiting for drinks etc. Today went to Vukovi, Blossoms, Twin Atlantic, The Amazons, Two Door Cinema Club, The 1975, Superfood and Biffy. Vukovi and Twin were cracking, Blossoms were dull as mud I thought compared to their album. Biffy absolutely smashed it, best act of the weekend. Notices get quieter again, but nice and bustling. Overall I really enjoyed the weekend, would definitely go back next year. Though I'd want slightly bigger stages/tents for Jack Rocks and King Tuts. Better selection of beers is always welcome (I did hear that either West or Drygate can't remember which tried to get in but were rejected). Totally agree that toning down the blatant commercialism would be nice. Make better use of the tree covered areas, some more fairy lights in the branches and set up a wee acoustic stage or something. Final positive note, I don't think I saw one person urinating against a fence the whole weekend - fantastic to see loads and loads of toilets so there was no excuse for just going against a wall. Long may that continue.

    No wristbands are issued unless you have VIP tickets seems to be the consensus. You need to keep the ticket all weekend to get in each day.
  12. TITP 2018

    I would expect to see something similar to TRNSMT - standard guitar bands with one or two slightly leftfield choices thrown in so DF can claim it caters to a different audience. Arcade Fire or Paolo Nutini / Imagine Dragons / Stormzy / Two Door Cinema Club Justice / Craig David You Me At Six / The Jesus & Mary Chain The Killers or Foo Fighters / Royal Blood / Lana Del Rey / Haim Chvrches / Jack Garratt Wiley / Christine & the Queens Florence + The Machine / Stereophonics / Lorde / George Ezra Boy Better Know / Blossoms Jamie T / Dizzee Rascal

    Cheers @kingcrawler for the clashfinder (http:///s/trnsmt2017/ for anyone wanting a look). Here's the Utilita Energy Power Tree stage times if you want to add them too
  14. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Black Honey, Superfood, Tijuana Bibles are the 3 I already know and will be making an effort to see.
  15. TRNSMT Festival 2017

    Yeah that's crap for us, but I can totally understand it from a business perspective. They would make a lot less money & have more trouble with drunk folk if you could just nip out to any pub, get hammered and have a wee burger then head back in to the arena.
