  1. Rock Werchter 2018

    Very surprised that Steven Wilson is playing - he doesn't play a lot of festivals (and then usually prog fests). Quite a coup for Werchter. I'm doing MadCool, but both this and NOS Alive looking incredibly strong this year. A shame no UK fests come close to these kind of line-ups.
  2. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Ye gods! Just seen the full R+L line-up. I barely recognise any of the names... Either I'm "Officially old"TM or it is as rubbish as I suspect.
  3. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    I am somewhat underwhelmed tbh, and if I hadn't already got a locals ticket (going with my brother and family), this line-up would not tempt me. After the R+L announcement and seeing what else is on this summer, no UK festival is really bringing anything at all special. I would have thought that the vacuum left by Glastonbury would have enriched all the other festivals but it doesn't seem so. And then you look at the madness going on in Madrid and Lisbon and it really does pale...
  4. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    The wider internet at 5.01
  5. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Happy Mondays? Wouldn't mind that... but not a very cryptic clue.
  6. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Believe me, I'd like to rule Kasabian out altogether...
  7. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Except Depeche Mode who sold out the London Stadium less than a year ago... And The Killers who have headlined both Wembley Stadium and Hyde Park And Kasabian who headlined King power Stadium for a two night stand. But other than that lot, you're right.
  8. Mad Cool 2018

    I saw BADBADNOTGOOD at Glastonbury. Sadly, not an ironic name.
  9. Mad Cool 2018

    Eels are great live, and surprisingly funny and a 'good time' considering how downbeat they are on record. I hope the programmers don't have them clashing with PJ as I imagine them having a lot of fans in common. PJ are incredible though and 2.5 hours is pretty standard for them so no doubt where I'll be.
  10. Mad Cool 2018

    This is typographically very unsatisfying.
  11. Mad Cool 2018

    Does anyone know how the VIP golden circle works. I've got a regular ticket but see there is a special zone for VIPs, and was hoping that its one of those ones to the side, not blocking access to the front completely for us plebs.
  12. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    ...And end every single song with a 5-minute drum solo!
  13. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    Looking at headliners in the 90s and saying they were over booked is ridiculous. The festival simply wasn't as big back then, either in physical size, attendance or cultural acumen. The idea of stadium size bands going to Glastonbury or indeed any festival was just not considered, so you never would have had the likes of U2, Springsteen or GNR of whoever else was at that stage back then. At the time, the Black Crowes were a totally credible headliner. Lenny was pushed up because RHCP dropped out but still nailed it.
  14. Music on the Thursday

    Primal Scream headlined in 2012 - a great start to the weekend.
