  1. 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.
  2. Plastic Bottle Ban?

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

    Pretty sure they didn’t do that many at IOW, certainly didn’t feel like it.
  4. Latitude 2018

    Couldn’t agree more, I love the arrivals day of any festival, get in as early as possible, set up, crack open the ciders and chill in the sun.
  5. Main Stage

    They will struggle to fill 60 mins, their IOW set was pretty much the 3 songs everyone knows filled with lots of shouting, waffle and shout outs to jam master jay.
  6. NFR NFC - to tide you over the fallow year

    Have it in a muddy field after not showering for 5 days? All the men have to wear shorts, have a red landrover to bring you to the church, get everyone to park about 2 miles away and walk there, don’t make it too Glastonbury though, Coldplay might turn up.

    The killers will sell tickets, solange won’t and to a lesser extent neither will Alt-J
  8. Latitude 2018

    What ‘calibre’ of people are you referring to that can’t posibly like the killers and rag n bone man whilst being nice people?
  9. Latitude 2018

    There’s obviously still a comedy headliner to be announced but I’ve had to do a lot of googling. looks like I’m finally getting to see The Killers after missing them twice at Glastonbury, and not going to IOW this year, yes I’m late to the party but better late than never. As for the rest, bearing in mind I only saw 4 bands all weekend last year I’m sure I’ll be fine.
  10. Wens the next announcement coz the 1st ones shite

    Not a great advert for the Festival. I hope this isn’t indicative of what goes on at KC otherwise this year will be out last as well as first time at KC.
  11. 2018 - Any advice or help needed ?

    What’s it like getting a drink from the bars, does it take long? Is it a token system or just cash, it’s there a queuing system, IOW have a fantastic queuing system which is so well organised that you never queue for more than about 1 minute for a drink.
  12. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    No but if you headlined a bigger festival last year why would you not headline a smaller festival this year.
  13. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    The are headliners because they headlined a ‘bigger’ festival last year. They shouldn’t have headlined that but once the precedence is set it’s not going to charge in only the following year.
  14. WNY

    I wonder who their Sunday headliner will be this year?
  15. What's everyone think then?

    No not been but we did think about it for this year but fancied KC more, I know a few people who go and love it.
  16. What's everyone think then?

    It’s our first year this year, we bought our tickets back in April in the super early pre advance dawn of man premature super early bird sale purely because last years had sold out and we liked the look of the Festival. We would definitely NOT be buying now but we will still go although it is a bloody long way from Somerset.
  17. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    They co headlined IOW last year so I guess have established their headliner credentials, however their set essentially centred around their 3 well know tracks filled with lots of waffle, shout outs to each other and Jam master Jay and lots of unintelligible shouting. They were awful. I can only assume they are a last minute replacement for someone who dropped out, surely Festival organisers talk to each other, I can’t imagine anyone involved with IOW would have anything good to say about their set to recommend them to anyone else.
  18. What's everyone think then?

    They co headlined IOW last year and despite what you may or may not think about that Festival, it’s a bigger Festival than KC so I guess they had to headline. That said they were bloody awful and have no place headlining the opening of an envelope never mind a Festival.
  19. What's everyone think then?

    Initially I’d say I’m disappointed, saw run dmc last year and they were awful, not remotely interested in libertines but I’ll give them a go and catfish I’ve seen but depending on who else is on I’ll give them another go. When you delve deeper there’s enough to keep me occupied and I’m sure there’s still a couple of gems to come, isn’t there?
  20. Radio X

    Normally I’d say ignore how bad things sound recorded on a phone but in this case they were as bad as this sounds.
  21. Radio X

    How many bands usually play on the Thursday? I can only see hacienda classical so far
  22. Radio X

    With that lineup the trek up from Somerset, which already looked hard going, has just got a whole lot worse. It’ll be fine going up but not looking forward to the Monday morning trek home.
  23. Radio X

    Ashcroft would have been perfect, saw him at IOW and despite not really being a verve fan and thinking he is a bit of a twat I thoroughly enjoyed his set, really very good.
  24. Radio X

    Fuck you know things are bad when you look at a lineup and think, oh OCS were not terrible when I saw them before so that’ll be ok. RUN DMC were atrociously bad at IOW last year, 90 mins of waffle and shouting, just awful. whats with all the dj sets, basement max, grandmaster flash, the coral, Tim Burgess, if you are going to sign people up get them to actually do a gig not twiddle a few knobs.
  25. Radio X

    Is that OCS on Friday?
