  1. Arcade Fire

    Everything now is getting really strong radio play - I only listen to the radio in the car sporadically and I heard it on radio 1, 2, absolute and x this weekend.
  2. Arcade Fire

    Hmmm with reflector I was very positive and have gradually lost enthusiasm for it (some great songs but significantly worse than the three before). With this I loved the first three singles but it is disappointing to hear they are the standout tracks (along with the penultimate one). Hoping it grows on me and is better live (as everything they do generally is)
  3. Latitude Festival 2017

    Oh yes of course, i'm not saying latitude has turned into leftfield! It wouldn't have happened a year ago though... Not to my personal taste but Dave was really good.
  4. Latitude Festival 2017

    A large section of the crowd were singing the Jeremy corbyn song on the sunrise stage before Dave came on... which was surprising
  5. Blue Dot Festival

    Some more feedback for the organiser who was on here - the only negative we had was having paid £35 for showers for the weekend we were less than impressed to find them packed up on Monday morning!
  6. Latitude Festival 2017

    Am I biased (because I can't stand them) but did mumfords make latitude worse not better? Limited alternatives on Saturday night, big queues in the car park straight after their set and a feeling like sunday was half empty? Had a top weekend but saw about 2 full set from the top six on the main stage and not because I had other places to be. I like fleet foxes and John cale but head and sub at a festival that size they are not... and they drew the crowd to prove it. Can't help but feel that a more regular sized Saturday headliner could have meant John cale in the afternoon, fleet foxes at sunset and a headline act that people would have stuck around for? That said still had great fun at Goldfrapp, Placebo, DJ yoda, Joe goddard and in the woods generally

  9. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    Well I'm certainly not losing any sleep over it!
  10. Are Tories welcome at Glastonbury

    As a left leaning person it sometimes frustrates me how confrontational people with otherwise similar views can be (personally I don't see that as the way to win people over) However I saw no abuse of tories at any point, the corbyn speech, radiohead mentioning Theresa, Jeremy corbyn song etc. I wore a labour t-shirt on the first day and a guy looked at me incredulously and said 'for the many not the few mate' in an aggressive tone. I replied yes politely and carried on having a lovely old time. Tories are welcome, no abuse is welcome. The festival has political roots and I enjoyed seeing them being celebrated this year like they hadn't for a while. It is unfortunate for tories that the best large UK music festival is directly against their politics but it can easily be respectfully ignored... or they can go to other festivals.
  11. Blue Dot Festival

    Thanks so much for this festival. Glastonbury aside, I have never wanted to return to a British festival as much. I don't remember walking past a tent/stage and disliking the music at any point. Sci-fi stuff like the star wars talks/jedi class and back to the future deloreans/puppets were highlights too. As was hearing the doctor who theme performed 3 times. It makes a real dilemma for me to return with the kids (who would love it) or without (as this year) and enjoy the late night stuff. Having that outside the arena with the fire garden and close to several campsites was great for us.
  12. Arcade Fire

    Wow. I have seen them a few times - pyramid, Hackney empire, bowie second line parade in New Orleans etc... but that was just as special. What I wouldn't give for a regime solo album, wih more singles like sprawl 2, produced by win.
  13. Latitude Festival 2017

    Any recommendations from the undercard... for someone who tends to like the more electronic (simian, dj yoda, fatboy, jaguar skills) or upbeat (placebo Leon bridges, public service broadcasting) parts of the line-up? A lot of the latitude music is too twee/chilled/acoustic for my liking but I go as my friends do and it is an otherwise lovely festival Thanks!
  14. Latitude Festival 2017

    Got my volunteering shifts through... bar Friday night 5-1 I have the entire weekend off (Thursday and Monday day time shifts) - happy with that
  15. JUSTICE

    Yeah it probably was my least favourite of the three... but still excellent. Sound was so much better than Jackson the previous night
