  1. Latitude 2018

    You've missed the Lake Stage! which makes 6.
  2. Predictions for 2018

    The previously announced headliners were Fleet Foxes and The War on Drugs, so both male and very static on stage, and my guess is the 3rd headliner was going to be either female and/or someone who would add a bit of visual razamataz.

    I keep on expecting targetted ads for anti-depressants to appear on this thread. And its getting worse. James Bay, FFS.
  4. You get ten acts and ten acts only

    Version 1 (before I listen to any of the acts I don't already know). Vampire Weekend Ezra Furman (Garden headliner or Woods sub? - I'd prefer the former, but if so, who would he clash with?) Protomartyr Shame Colter Wall Big Thief Jeff Tweedy Hookworms Gruff Rhys (still remember his set + .ppt presentation last time) Imarhan And now to start in on the playlist.

    Google 'Green Man Festival Map' and click on Images.

    Why stop there. Be greedy. Let's have both of them.
  7. Latitude 2018

    Well I'd buy a ticket for that, which I'm not likely to do if we get the equivalent of this year's dross.

  9. 2017 - How was it for you?

    I saw Car Seat Headrest last Tuesday at the O2 Forum Kentish Town. Whereas at GM, Will just said 'this is a James Brown number', at the O2 Will explained they were close to the end of the cycle of playing the 2 Teens albums and were getting rather bored by it and were yearning to move on, so they often now mess around with other stuff as a relief to try and stay fresh, then they played the James Brown number. I rather felt that the EOTR perfomance was a game of 2 halves, get the 'hits' out of the way and then play the non-standard stuff that hasn't been part of the set for the last 2 years. Didn't lessen the performance in any way, but I think it does rather summarise the issue for bands that have been playing basically the same set for 2 years, and I know CSH have because I'd seen them a couple of times before the O2 performance.
  10. You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

    Agreed, and I do hope you're right about that, but then we may run into a clash with Japandroids? So if that happens, it needs to be the one you saw during the day clashing with Japandroids. So it comes down to a coin toss. It all gets very complicated.
  11. You get 10 bands and 10 bands only

    So you've now got the problem that a number of us have: Nap Eyes vs. Rolling Blackout Coastal Fever clash.
  12. Festival Buddy for End of the Road Festival

    That's a pretty good description. And we will be roughly where the 'G' of 'General Camping' is on the map above and to the right of where the Public Showers are marked. We should be there with the flag up fairly soon after the site opens on the Thursday.
  13. New Site Map

    I think it is pretty much where Karaoke in the Bath was last year.
  14. Learnings from Green Man

    Set was more of the same; not many numbers but, as per the 2 Spotify tracks, longish ones. Rough Trade should have the single with those 2 tracks (got mine at GM - have to keep waiting for my wife to go out before I can play them with the dial suitably turned up). Also I confirmed with Rough Trade that will have some CSH vinyl.
  15. Festival Buddy for End of the Road Festival

    Dom, we are going to be in the spot again, with the same flag, and many of the same cast of welcoming, friendly faces, although maybe not the Cherry Bakewell Tart vodka.
