  1. Mad Cool 2018

    Ok so this lineup is catching my interest. Is cheap accommodation easy to find in Madrid? As I understand it there's no camping. I'm also gonna presume it's both cheaper and easier to get to Madrid than it was Benicassim this year.
  2. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I echo @eFestivals sentiment regarding Boomtown. I went this year and had a top time but I don't think it's somewhere I'm gonna be clamouring to get to every year. There were about a dozen acts I wanted to see (only a couple of real 'must-sees). That and the production - which is admittedly spectacular - definitely made the visit a worthwhile one. But is the production good enough to keep me coming back without a lineup to my tastes? I dunno, unless they've added a load of new areas (possible) I think it could become a little 'samey'. It's not the same size as Glasto so you can see pretty much everything you want to in one visit I reckon. Would definitely recommend it for at least that one visit though. Will wait for more lineups in the next couple of months, but if they're similar to this year I'll probably go with Bestival out of the 2.
  3. Kanye west confirmed

    Every time I see this thread on the front page I click in the hope that he's announced European dates or something
  4. Lineup 2018

    I've noticed virtually everyone's putting Kendrick in their predictions. Any actual basis for this other than he'll have finished touring? I know he subbed a couple of years ago. I'm 100% back at Leeds next year if he's there.
  5. Kendrick Lamar

    That was more difficult than any glastonbury sale/resale I've been in. No luck getting the 3 we needed.
  6. Kendrick Lamar

    Had about 6 of us trying and not a sniff of standing in Manc this morning. Presume Livenation must've only been given a tiny amount of tickets to sell.
  7. Kendrick Lamar

    Possibly. Shit me right up either way.
  8. Kendrick Lamar

    Good news. Seems like everyone is on the livenation presale (and obviously everyone on Friday) though so I imagine it's gonna be even more of a dogfight than this morning.
  9. Kendrick Lamar

    Phew. Why put seat numbers on them? Admin stuff? Don't think I've seen that on a standing ticket before.
  10. Kendrick Lamar

    Also there's still 3 of our group without tickets, do people reckon that's it for standing now?
  11. Kendrick Lamar

    Can someone confirm that this is standing and not seating? My mate bought these and 'standing/lower seating' were in the same bit and he's not realised. It's unclear because it has seat numbers but yet no aisle and it also says GA. These are definitely standing right?!
  12. Kendrick Lamar

    Agree with earlier sentiment that James Blake will be pretty much ruined by a largely uninterested crowd. Was bad enough with people talking over it at his own show at the academy in Manc last year. Tempted to go Dam for this. Won't be much difference between that with flights and Manc if the £107 prices for UK are correct?
  13. Kendrick Lamar

    J Cole 60, wasn't Drake about 110'ish? I'd expect somewhere in between for Kendrick. 90+ genuinely wouldn't surprise me though. He did have Travis Scott as support for the US leg though (who'd charge £30+ in his own right over here) so someone like that would soften the blow nicely.
  14. Kendrick Lamar

    Add about £20-£30 to that I reckon.
  15. Old Music Thread

    Random question, seems vaguely 'old music' related: Does anyone know how I'd go about contacting Paul Simon or his management? I've looked at social media channels and his website and I can't seem to find any way of messaging/contacting them. Long story short, I'm looking to get the lyric "I'd rather be a hammer than a nail" from El Condor Pasa tattooed in memory of my dad who passed a few years back. I'd originally wanted it in my dad's own handwriting but weirdly I don't seem to have anything with it, so does anyone reckon or know how I'd be able to get the man himself to write the lyric?
