  1. Latitude 2018

    Beyoncé putting in an appearance joining her sister at latitude sounds like a good thing for the organisers to spread about to boost the numbers at the main stage and keeps numbers manageable watching James. She may be there to watch little sis but highly doubt she would join her on stage. Would be a bit off to get a better reception than the headline act. Solonge joining Beyoncé on stage at coachella boosts her profile, Beyoncé joining solonge on stage at latitude completely overshadows her.
  2. I feel lost

    I once went in a ‘English pub’ in Delhi that had table service and seemed to be modelled on the bar from cheers, it was as though an Indian had built a pub based on plans made by an American who had once read than we have pubs in Britain but had never been in one or had any idea on what they are like.
  3. Having never been before it’s not my place to criticise the lineup but I wonder if the perceived poor lineup is as a result of the success of the festival over the years, it sells out every year so there’s no pressure on the bookers to go out and book the best acts they can to sell tickets. Success breeds complacency. the only other festival that routinely sells out irrespective of lineup is Glastonbury but that is kept honest because it’s so high profile and it is a labour of love for the organisers. it is a little surprising that on a Glastonbury fallow year that the whole UK festival scene is a little weak, you would think festivals would have a stronger lineup this year as acts seek more alternatives to Glastonbury, it seems however that maybe acts aren’t even coming to the UK, does Glastonbury draw in the overseas acts and the other festivals benefit from this?
  4. What are you looking forward to the most ?

    It’s my first time at the festival so I’m looking forward to everything
  5. Your Dream Ten Acts for 2019

    Do all the people who put fleetwood Mac on their list still want them to appear now they have just booted Lindsey Buckingham out of the band? Mike Campbell and Neil Finn are replacing him.
  6. Cursed autocorrect!
  7. Rather have Paul Heston and Jacqui abbot.
  8. Any idea how long it’s been delayed for?
  9. IOW Ferries

    The IOW ferris are the most expensive ferries in the world, and then of course they cash in for the Festival by putting them up even more, they do cheaper early bird tickets when the festival first goes on sale, but that’s long gone. Last year I paid£245 to get my Motorhome to the festival, this year we are going to Kendal Calling instead, which costs less for the whole festival for 2 people and the MH than the ferry an CV ticket for IOW.
  10. Why no caravans?

    It’s amazing what people seem to get away with in campervan fields at festivals, at IOW last year 2 women turned up late on the Friday in a van with a mattress in the back and got in no problem despite them being banned. But the worst was the couple who turned up in a VW beetle and put up a tipi next to it, on what planet does that count as a campervan?
  11. Future "Legends"

    John fogerty would be outstanding in the legends slot. ELO have definitely opened up the slot for 10cc to do it. Jethro tull are back together but not sure legends slot is for them, headlining or subbing west holts maybe? as for distant future ‘legends’ Robbie Williams is nailed on, other than that don’t care hopefully the slot will be no more by the time we get to the tin pot warblers about now.
  12. Secure Storage - Standard / Large - How Big?

    When and what time are you playing, just been listening to your stuff, sounds great. if you are still stuck for storage come the Festival I can offer the services of my Motorhome,.
  13. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    You misunderstand my comment. I was replying to efestivals comment that bottled water is the worlds biggest scam and saying that it’s the developed worlds biggest scam, some places rely on bottled water.
  14. Plastic Bottle Ban?

    The developed worlds biggest scam, not everywhere has drinkable tap water
  15. Main Stage

    Pretty sure they didn’t do that many at IOW, certainly didn’t feel like it.
