  1. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    I'll try and drag my mates along to that, there'll be about six of us I reckon.
  2. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Strange to retweet that now, likely just a mistake, although I wouldn't be surprised if The Streets were there as they've been playing gigs. They'd be class
  3. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Ta. I knew TS was meant to be on the Thursday but wasn't sure of the others. Hopefully there's someone decent on at the same time on the Thursday as I can't be arsed with that
  4. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Do we know what day everyone is headlining?
  5. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Are you sure about this because you already said that and they had an announcement and none of those were on it? Peter Andre and Mungo Jerry would be kind of bizarre as well
  6. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Charlatans are a great addition, wasn't expecting that but excited to see them again! Pale Waves and Metronomy good too
  7. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    If Travis Scott is a headliner then Morrissey's a headliner, without question. But he'd be a great booking. He may be a bit of a cock but he's one of the greatest songwriters ever.

    Libertines please
  9. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    Would also like some of this information. We've always taken little cooler thing to Leeds but dunno what the rules are at Beni. And I'm gonna assume that with safety it's just standard festival approach - don't leave anything massively valuable in tents but apart from that you're probably fine? I mean people aren't that likely to go around stealing clothes and that, most are looking for something specific - probably either phones or alcohol - and if they don't find anything they're not gonna waste their time nicking a t-shirt, they'll just move on to somewhere else.

    Didn't even think about buying a ticket off someone on the FB page when I went and got mine from the website, could've saved myself some money! Are there any concrete rumours atm? Like anyone that maybe hasn't been announced but it pretty much nailed on to play? I'm ok with the lineup as it is with The Killers and LG being fantastic headliners for me, and Wolf Alice are probably my favourite band of the last few years. Catfish are great, looking forward to seeing them again, and there's a load of others that will be great to see: The Vaccines (really good live), The Kooks, Justice, TDCC (last time I went to Leeds they clashed with RHCP so I've been waiting for another chance to see them!), Parquet Courts, Everything Everything and Shame. Would also see The Magic Gang and Nothing But Thieves as well. And I've just seen Madness are there! I must have missed that announcement - I bet that'll be a great show. So really, I'm happy with the lineup, although in comparison to other festivals it looks disappointing. Even a couple more decent size bands would be good though.
  11. Benicassim (FIB) 2018

    They're not really a great headliner but surely you know the Pet Shop Boys? They're one of the most famous bands of all time! I find it highly unlikely you've never heard of them... Still not a good booking though.
  12. Lineup 2018

    Pendulum is a massive booking, the trio of them, Wolf Alice and Skepta is such a strong set of NME headliners! Compared to YMA6/Flume/HAIM; Jack Ü/TDCC/1975; Limp Bizkit/Rebel Sound/Deadmau5; Courteeners/Bombay Bicycle Club/Disclosure; Skrillex/alt-J/Phoenix; Maccabees/At The Drive-In/Justice; The Streets/Beady Eye/Jane's Addiction; Pendulum/Klaxons/LCD Soundsystem; I think this year's trio is the best of this decade.
  13. Lineup 2018

    Funny you are
  14. Lineup 2018

    The Mist, Lil Pump etc. Although it doesn't even really matter who, it's more the sheer overload of rappers that makes it look weak. And they don't even have to be mid-tier, could even just be a few more buzz bands along the lines of Shame.
  15. Lineup 2018

    Yeah, even that would go a long way to make it look not half bad Exactly. KOL look weak because the others are weak but Kendrick is a big draw so if the other hadnt been FOB, then even KOL would look good because they'd be considered the "weak" headliner and really, they're a pretty good booking in that regard. I remember a few people asking for them last year...
