  1. Main Stage

    yep agreed but also then leaves either a headline or sub slot open!
  2. Main Stage

    That sounds like they are not subbing but lower down card?
  3. Main Stage

    as I said, i just wrote down in poster/ website order to give an idea of strength and times. looks like only room for 1 more act (2 if Peter Hook is Thursday). I can still see them announcing another act for Saturday night either after or before DMC which would give them the Snoop Dog slot but still allow them to have pride of place top centre of poster. If this was an issue I can't see it being raised by Catfish or Libertines tbh. What I will say is imho this is the strongest pre headline main stage in years
  4. 2018 - Any advice or help needed ?

    What is the correct, polite course of action to take if, in the middle of the night in emperor's you hear a Scottish female voice screaming 'Rob, Rob, Graham's finally gone to sleep, I need you now... and Mrs Botton too!' I think the message may have been cryptic so any help appreciated.
  5. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    Happy to be corrected by Tinie was on for much longer than 50 minutes last year. Mrs Botton was shocked at the many tracks he played that she actually knew (& liked!)
  6. Who would you like added in the next Announcement?

    Spoiler alert... I have heard that 'Butch Dyke' is the Saturday dress up theme this year! (Ps keep this under your frumpy shit hat!)
  7. Main Stage

    Based on nothing more than the order they appear on website and posters (& removing the * Thursday artists, pretty sure only 1 so far?) here is the Main Stage with an act time guesstimate just as a gauge to see whether there are likely another act(s) to add. Looks pretty full to me. Friday Saturday Sunday 2130 CATFISH & THE BOTTLEMEN RUN DMC THE LIBERTINES 1945 OCEAN COLOUR SCENE JAMES SHED SEVEN 1830 THE WAILERS THE SHERLOCKS WHITE LIES 1715 PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS DECLAN MCKENNA 1600 THE SLOW READERS CLUB THE AMAZONS DUB PISTOLS 1445 LANCASHIRE PISSPOTS efest meet up HOLLIE COOK SAM FENDER 1330 THE BLINDERS JORDAN ALLEN PLASTIC MERMAIDS 1215 FALSE ADVERTISING FELIX HAGAN & THE FAMILY

  10. Line up prediction game 2018

    actually strike that Jeramiah Ferrari confirmed so on 6... & with DannyEvo getting controversially DQ'd who knows!!
  11. Line up prediction game 2018

    Fun Lovin Criminals Panda Cups Liam Gallagher Jesus Jones Lowes Marsicans Garage Sleeper Reverend and the Makers Cast Texas Chemical Brothers Snow Patrol The Sherlocks The Amazons Jamie T Kasabian Shed Seven Jeramiah Ferrari Fratellis there is my 5, expecting Panda Cups to be confirmed and still a chance for Lowes and Jeremiah Ferrari but that only puts me potentially up to 8 so once again I'll be buying this year!
  12. Calling out

    I think I mentioned my dislike for the calling out stage (layout not acts!) more than a few times. I hope it is not the Amazon's as I'd like to see them.
  13. Calling out

    Do we know who the calling out headlines are from the lineup?
  14. Line up prediction game 2018
