  4. Primavera 2018

    yeh ofc, I was more meaning someone of McCartney's level of notoriety, not specifically him. Nick Cave was one of the greatest shows I've ever been to and one of my first choices for a dream PS lineup. I was merely remarking that it'd be great to see someone who I've never had the chance to see before. I've been fortunate to see all my favourite acts that are still living/touring so would love a booking like Paul
  5. Primavera 2018

    not that I can see a unique booking like this would be amazing, but im fully prepared for AM, Bjork, Nick Cave and the National. Would work out for me as would only want to see Nick and The National. I did see both at the end of 2017 though so a surprise like Paul McCartney would be great, not expecting it tho
  6. Primavera 2018

    im starting to believe these Arctic Monkeys rumors. Someone in the Mad Cool thread saying they're announcing their festival dates on monday, which i think is the same day as the PS line up announcement
  7. Boomtown 2018

    it also seems strange to me that they've clearly indicated they are struggling for cash and so are scaling back the operation/mainlining expenses, but at the same time have just booked their biggest act ever. Perhaps they were over-reliant on that bid to increase the capacity, which ofc was refused, and have had to adjust accordingly.
  8. Boomtown 2018

    so, this goes against the main ethos of boomtown? One of the main factors used to be the lack of main stages and the importance/prevalence of tiny street venues. That's what made boomtown so special. Whilst I'm sure there will still be street venues, the fact they have got rid of one as popular as the rave-yard is a worrying sign as that has been one widely loved spots since i first went in 2013
  9. Primavera 2018

    I'm not really expecting there to be one. That list u mentioned is interesting because you could argue that AF, the xx and Frank Ocean had difficult/tumultuous years. Everything Now was widely panned by fans and critics and has resulted in many of their US shows not selling particularity well. I don't think the xx's new album really made much of an impact and then ofc Frank Ocean's busy 2017 ended up with multiple cancellations and angry fans. It's easy to look at those acts as good/current bookings but in my eyes Frank Ocean is the only one with the wow factor, and he probably wouldn't even show up. Whilst all this doesn't necessarily have impact/reflect on PS's booking policy, i do think its interesting this precedent that is placed on ''bigger'' names. I'd always have Nick Cave over the xx, arcade fire, frank ocean, jack white etc.

  11. Primavera 2018

    meh...they can have him
  12. 2018 New Music

    liking the new Ought track. Very excited for the new album, the last two are exceptional
  13. Football 17/18

    apparently Ashley has given Rafa 6mill for transfers..... I can't say I'm surprised, I've had a feeling the takeover talks would come to nothing, Ashely wouldn't give Rafa any money resulting in him walking and us getting relegated
  14. Primavera 2018

    thats a shame, he's the exact sort of act that I thought Primavera would have gone for
  15. Primavera 2018

    I understand wanting to know the line up and book flights etc earlier but frankly its not up to them, it's not as if this year the line-up is coming substantially later than the years before. It's the same with lots of festival, for example Reading and Leeds this year. I dunno why some people expect to get what they want, I would never send negativity towards Gabi etc because what's the point? People act like spoilt children on christmas eve. Everyone needs to just chill out and have faith in the organisers, it'll be worth the wait
