    Not sure but I can’t see an outcome where the main stage sub doesn’t clash with either of the second stage top two.
  2. Lineup 2018

    Funnily enough I saw Alfie Clayton being dropped off at daycare.
  3. Lineup 2018

    How did you know it was him you fuckin Creeper.

    Fair enough. I don't know what a relatively modest number of people chucking their tickets back onto Twickets has to do with slow sales but you're probably right. I guess demand will have been eaten up by Castlefield being not that long ago and then the album probably gave enough of those a reason to give it a miss.
  5. Arcade Fire

    Is it struggling to sell? Seems to have sold pretty well apart from what I assume are some upper tiers.
  6. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Think it might be specific to the Stones.
  7. Lineup 2018

    Could go either way I suppose. They closed it early for Kendrick last time and he only subbed, but I could see Wretch being a decent alternative to Kendrick as well and if they are bringing in more and more rappers then they're gonna have to start clashing a few dissimilar ones. Probably more likely that they avoid clashing AJ Tracey and Skepta.
  8. Kanye west confirmed

    That grid of blokes’ faces was originally the audience members who were asking typically rightist questions to Corbyn and someone on Twitter pointed out that their faces were all the colour of gammon, so now when there are typically conservative views (or ones that can be traced to that, like rockism would be looped into that on here) they are inexorably linked to gammon.
  9. Headliners Finish

    11 is the set curfew for main stages so you should be fine.
  10. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    Ah that’s awful. I guess it’s alright us lot knowing to never buy above FV and guffawing at their hyperbole when we’re not who they’re trying to con. They’re definitely the worst of a bad bunch - even in the cheap tickets game they all but eradicate the deficit with ridiculous fees.
  11. Lineup 2018

    He won’t play at all.
  12. Arcade Fire

    I think it’s just because we’ve had the end of year and winter and Christmas and whatever since. In reality, it’s not uncommon for a band to be promoting an album eight months on, and the Suburbs movie think came out about a year later. That’s probably why the ticket companies have implemented it then. I read that the seats in this tour give you a better look at the visual spectacle and all that if you eventually succumb to buying a ticket on the door.
  13. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    I know what you mean. You have a look at some tickets that are a fraction of face value because nobody wants them and it still puts you in a "queue" because of all the people looking at tickets right now, snatching tickets left right and centre.
  14. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    It must be a great time to be a classically trained musician.
  15. Arcade Fire

    People said they monkeyed around, but nobody’s listening now. (do-do-do-do-do-do)
  16. Meltdown 2018

    I would say you're definitely being harsh. If it wasn't the prestigious arts space it is then there'd be no Bob Smith curated Meltdown with all yer faves, and if there weren't these memberships propping it up then it would struggle to stay afloat. Manchester International Festival is about the same; these aren't regular gigs so they can't be expected to be treated as such, and that's why it's not necessarily in line with gig ticket prices and you have to jump through different hoops, and I bet that drives a fair amount of people away. Anyway I'm pretty sure you'll get a chance to see any of these acts again outside the Southbank Centre.
  17. Arcade Fire

    Quite nice this. Obviously massively triggering for anyone who was upset by the Everything Now co. pseudo-marketing scheme as this is very much the short film of that, but just comes across as a bit of daft fun really. Also gives strong evidence that Regine has never eaten cereal before. EDIT: in other news, they played (Antichrist Television Blues) for the first time in a decade last night.
  18. Lineup 2018

    Jorja Smith is exclusive at Bestival. I think Cigarettes After Sex will probably be in the next announcement (they still have tickets to shift for May) and Gang of Youths seem to be getting the run of festivals this year so I bet they’ll be playing as well. Probably Stefflon Don and a few more of the UK based lower down names as well.
  19. 2019 Stage Predictions

    Put ‘em here.
  20. Green Man Festival 2018

    There looks to be a dozen or so to tack on, including a second stage headliner. It seems like they release a small announcement every month from now so the comedy and literature type things might be eked out over the coming months. I'm still having a tough time deciding too but they'll give plenty of warning when tickets start to run low, fortunately. Yeah I think I made the same mistake first time I saw it. Doesn't make sense but there you go, the world of festival lineup posters for ya.
  21. Green Man Festival 2018

    KG are headlining Friday night. Says they're Sat/Sun on their site. Ah thanks. Shoulda thought about checking there. D'oh.
  22. Green Man Festival 2018

    They've said that there is one second stage headliner to come, so they're certainly not all Friday-Sunday second stage headliners. If I was gonna punt on one outcome or the other, they'd all be subbing. Do you guys think they'd have said about Thursday's headliner by now? I'm thinking that it might be Grizzly Bear because they have a French festival on Friday, and Lowlands on either Saturday or Sunday, and then possibly Pukkelpop on either Saturday or Thursday as well. Green Man Twitters seems to be avoiding answering about Thursday which might mean they don't wanna divulge that Thursday headliner is already there, but I don't get why they wouldn't confirm it.
  23. 2019 Stage Predictions

    Fair enough. Personally I understand it with quite a few acts hat are decent-enough space-fillers or rapidly up-and-coming artists (there are repeats in my prediction as well) but you don't really wanna overdo the likes of King Gizzard and Father John and Solange until they just become part of the furniture like Everything Everything or something.
  24. 2019 Stage Predictions

    Yeah I don’t think I had him in my prediction and I’m moving TWOD out of the Other sub slot so I’m down.
  25. Lineup 2018

    Stereophonics, Catfish and Liam Gallagher headlining every field in the land is peak Brexit.
