  1. Bands for 2017

    I'm really impressed with the new Waxahatchee album, Out in the Storm. It reminds me of the softer side of grunge back in the early 90s, like Juliana Hatfield and The Breeders. Really good stuff and it'll be great to see some "rock" on the Garden Stage. Sunday is looking awesome from start to finish: Vaudou Game > Nap Eyes > Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever > Nadia Reid > Julia Jacklin > Waxahatchee > Amadou & Mariam > Marika Hackman > Bill Callahan It's interesting that Simon was sharing album recommendations about the first 3 of these acts on Instagram during the year, so he does give some clues away as to what might be coming.

    I totally agree, but it's interesting how Thursday is now more of "a thing" with Woods Stage headliners of some pedigree for the last two years, as opposed to competition winners and underground acts in the Tipi. Don't get me wrong, I used to love the old days, but things have simply moved on. I much preferred last year's Teleman/Shins combination to this year's, but each to their own.

    Once Glastonbury has been on TV, End of the Road is all I can think about every year. Clashfinder already planned

    This is my 9th time at EOTR and the only time I ventured into the film tent was film occasion number 3 for @shoebox - but it was standing room only for The Muppets as everyone had the same idea. I soon ventured back out into the rain. I agree with @xxialac - why do something you could easily do at home? Too many bands, too many ales.

    It gets busy but you can usually get in and even work your way forward fairly easily. I can't remember a real crush in there. Not everyone goes for the late Big Top show though; there are still things going on in the Tipi tent, the silent disco, the disco ship, the bonfire at the cider bus, and some are even heading back to their tent by then!

    FJM had a huge band at Glastonbury, horns, strings, etc. It'll be impressive if he brings it all to EOTR.

    It all seems to be Woods Stage and Garden for me this year, with surprisingly little Big Top compared to most years. For me, the acts are spread well across the days, with Sunday being the best. What a day that could be: Vaudou Game > Nap Eyes > Rolling Blackouts Coastal Fever > Starcrawler > Foxygen > Amadou & Mariam > Deerhoof > Bill Callahan

    I totally agree. Yes please. Bloody Sunday night looking the best again. I'm usually gone by then. May have to stay over for the first time.

    The festival does have a bit of a history with supergroups. I was wondering about the likelihood of BNQT playing, given that BOH are there anyway.

    Interpol have a nice space on Saturday 2nd Sept during their tour for the 'Here come the bright lights' album. One can only hope! http://pitchfork.com/news/73217-interpol-add-turn-on-the-bright-lights-anniversary-shows/

    The Spotify description of Yndi Halda mentions "post rock, lengthy compositions"... not one for me. I still flinch at the memory of Explosions in the Sky.
  13. You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

    We'll have to come back on here, report on how many of the 10 we actually did see, along with a one line review.
  14. Tickets Selling out

    Does it sell out to "The Man"... Never! Do tickets sell out... Usually just a few weeks before the event. I think kids and teenager tickets sell out a lot sooner.
