  1. Green Man Festival 2017

    Amazing, the best yet I think. Highlights Hurray For The Riff Raff with that Dancing in the Dark cover Jessica Pratt playing Night Faces and Titles under Pressure, i love that debut album of hers so much, would've been better on Walled Garden but was great she was there at all. Daniel Avery finishing with Knowing We'll Be Here...euphoric! Gaelynn Lea- amazing, an inspiration! And a Neutral Milk Hotel cover! Julian Cope- I went only knowing that he'd written a book on ancient monuments and so just wanted something weird...didn't disapoint, great personality and songs! Bert Jansch film was great too, especially presented by 80s Billy Connoly Missed Oh Sees...I forgot they were on somehow, but I met the guitarist from This Is The Kit, Neil, in the urinal queue after and he seemed pretty wired from it, saying how good they were. Hope everyone gets out OK, my wheels span a bit at one point.

    These guys have had stellar line ups so far, but I never go, maybe next year. I would've loved to have seen Jean MJ, Caribou, Orbital, Pixies etc AND now I hear there was a Moomin film?!
  3. Green Man Festival 2017

    The walk is really really short from the Blue Car Park, my car's been probably like 3 mins walk away from my tent some years. There is a company called Mr Trolley when the festival opens properly, but I don't know if they're there for Settlement. That price seems a bit cheap too, I think it's one of things where you pay for like half an hour and then it's charged by the minute. I'm not sure though there could be a separate thing for Settlement. I don't think there is a big shop nearby really, the nearest supermarkets are in Abergavenny. Maybe just see how it goes but it might be worth moving just cause they'll be kids waking up early, and it wouldn't be that much of a hassle, the camping areas are really close together and well connected.

    Thursday times out. I'm asking for a refund if Huw Stephens isn't DJing literally all day as billed...if he takes ONE break cc: @dentalplan
  5. Kendrick Lamar

    I'm just going to wait until he's at Glastonbury and then celebrate the £100 saved with extra guac all festival.
  6. Festival cancelled due to mud

    badly organised, they seem to have accidentally booked Stereophonics.
  7. LCD Soundsystem....

    It is legalised there now though, it's not James' fault he's a maverick of both music and boxing regulations.
  8. Arcade Fire

    Going to have to sell all my stuff to afford to see these guys tell me I have Everything Now
  9. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    we can do it every week on the set's anniversary (On A Friday) (maybe not)
  10. Green Man Festival 2017

    I've stewarded twice- solo in 2013 and with a mate in 2016. I'd recommend it overall, it's definitely better than not going at all! 2013 was great, 2016 was less good as they put the shift lengths up to 8 hours, which i found took too much out of seeing stuff. But this year they've put it back down to 6 hours so that's alright. The staff campsites also a bit further away too (in GM terms, still very close in every other festival terms) By the way, you can turn up a lot later on Wednesday than they officially say, maybe even early Thursday if you can get your shifts beforehand. It's always a bit ramshackle when it gets started and then really don't seem to care. The 'orientation meeting' is really only useful if you've never been to GM before. And if you get the right shifts you can leave before Monday morning, but you'll have to have your deposit wired to you rather than pick it up in cash. Also, I'm not sure if they'll have allocated this yet, but ask to be on the accessibility team. Obviously it's great to help people get the most out the festival, but it also means you'll spend most of your shifts on the accessibility stands watching bands. But if you did do that you probably would have to turn up at the right time on Wednesday.

    This sentence is a complete mind fuck
  12. Game of Thrones discussion thread

    Good episode , especially The Hound's scenes, I thought. Although it's a shame Ed Sheeran didn't get cut in two, at least he wasn't naked.
  13. Electronica/Dance

    I saw Jon Hopkins at Arcadia, it was great, it went like this- and i saw Metamorphosis after
  14. Did anyone gain entry without their own ticket?

    how do the Seagulls get in? Almost every one I've spoken to hasn't had a wristband.
  15. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    it's a Glastonbury concept album, Pulk/Pull Revolving Doors is about the long drops, Morning Bell is about the milk cart.
