  1. Next Announcement 2017 Thread

    The anticipation is a good feeling to help recover from the weekend. The fact it's two years since I've been looking to see the poster makes it better still. Too much to expect The War On Drugs I suppose given their new single is out at the end of next month...

    I think it's silly to group together everyone who stays in WV as thinking they are better than those who stay inside the fence. That simply isn't true. There are many valid reasons to stay there, but that's not to say the place doesn't have some folk who DO think they are better than those inside the fence. You are, unsurprisingly, likely to find them in the glamping areas and you're also likely to find they don't arrive until the Friday, at least that's what the WV volunteers told me.

    Ah I see. I've never camped in Pennards and didn't know about them As you were!

    While very few of us want the festival sanitised in any way, if fewer people left their shit behind the shift towards pre-erected camping areas probably wouldn't be so serious.

    Think it's worth pointing out that the vast majority of WV is basic scout tents. The glamping options are up there as well, way further back, but the majority of people stay in basic tents. I'm not a fan of glamping either. Outrageously expensive and geared specifically towards people who are considerably better off
  6. Hot Chip warm up gig Birmingham 20th Feb

    They'll be playing high up the bill on the main stage at Electric Picnic, possibly even headlining the Friday or Saturday night, and if it's anything like Glasto it will be immense. That set on the Friday night is just about as euproric as I've ever been at Glasto. Brilliant party atmosphere. They really know how to play to a crowd

    Anyone who hasn't yet, I recommend listening to Lockah's album 'It Gets More Cloudy'. It's a humdinger. Real mish-mash of genres

    I have one of these boyos, now that you mention it. Got it for Electric Picnic last year and it worked a treat. That's that sorted then... all we need now is a ticket!

    Yeah don't get me wrong, I'm not too precious to carry a tent. Obviously stayed in a tent every year from 97 until last year, which was the first time I stayed in WV. Popup tents make it a bit more awkward though (I know we could go for a more orthodox tent), and I have to admit the promise of showers, close car parking etc was enough to make me try WV last year, although it was primarily booked as we had a couple of (not young) newbies who wanted that bit of security. I would be more than willing to go back to camping if there were showers within a civilised distance. It's got to the stage where I do value that morning shower too much to go without it for 5 days.

    Where are the showers near Gate A storm? I'd be tempted to stay there next year if I got a ticket, as mates of ours could take tents up from London

    For the likes of us who have to fly over, WV is a bit of a godsend. Taking tents etc adds to the cost of flights, so not having them offsets some of the cost of WV. Add to this the proximity of the car park, the showers, the size of the tents and the fact you can get proper sleep if you want, and I think it's very good. Definitely not for everyone, and if I wasn't flying from Ireland I don't think I'd do it either, but I can see the value in it

    What was with that? Hitchcockian stuff. They stayed for a while afterwards too. Hateful bastards
  14. Future Islands

    Hahahahaha... just watching the set now on iPlayer and saw the clip of the young lad seeing himself on the big screen! Pure, unadulterated shock and then gets right into it. He can live off that for the rest of his days

    This is brilliant. Future Islands, Spiritualized, Hot Chip, GOAT, Todd Terje, Vintage Trouble, Jon Hopkins and Chemical Brothers would be fantabulous
