  1. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Here's a left field one that's just popped into my mind... Salt-N-Pepa
  2. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Ok, obviously totally wrong on that! New guess - 11th Jan.
  3. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    My money is on Thursday or Friday...
  4. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Rob Da Bank just liked my tweet asking if he could lock Orbital in a cupboard after their Camp Bestival set and let them out a week later...

  6. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    The XX have played three times...
  7. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    I'd absolutely bloody love that!
  8. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Totally second this one!
  9. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    I’m gonna throw Floating Points and Daphni/Caribou into the mix too...
  10. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Some great shouts here... would love St Vincent for Thursday headliner, and Four Tet and Jon Hopkins would be ace.

    A good time for some lineup speculation I think now tickets are flying off the shelves. Who do you want to play? I’ll kick things off... Alt J Kendrick Kylie Orbital Moderat Ritchie Hawtin Loyle Carner Phoenix Sohn Heidi Black Madonna
  12. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Couldn’t agree more. Every time I look at the Boomtown lineup it just screams ‘Music for white middle-class annoying knobs who think they’re cultured and cool.’ I dont want to go anywhere near gap yaar twats skanking to reggae, folk or world music. And their dance lineup is distinctly average and completely ignores some pretty critical genres.

    From what I remember, Bestival usually leave it quite late to announce day splits.
  14. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    Wow... You really love just ranting on and getting your opinion across without actually engaging with an opposing view, don't you? I offered a concession that I may have expressed things badly, but you seem absolutely unwilling to accept anything other than your world view and it's not in the slightest bit appealing to debate with somebody like that. As I've said, I'm done - Somehow you've managed to turn this into slagging match about who knows more about electronic music when all I wanted to do was raise an objection to your ridiculous implication that certain acts should be banned from the main stages because they're not what you're into. I could post a whole hosts of weblinks, videos and essays to ram home my view about electronic music down everybody's throat as well (including Hooky saying NO are a rock band, a number of 'lists' that don't include NO or DM, essays on musical analysis of electronic music), but I really can't be arsed wasting my time on this any further. But just to clarify, I'm no kid, have been djing and promoting nights for a lot longer than you, and have a much more relevant degree and job. Not that any of that matters, but you seem to think it does. Thanks for taking absolutely all of the fun out of being on here. I'll probably leave this place alone for 18 months now. Enjoy raving to indie bands and going to bed before 3am, which you'll find a lot easier without a Glastonbury next year.
  15. Your (potentially) Contraversial Changes to Glasto

    I consider them in exactly the same bracket as New Order. And if you think Don't You Want Me exists in the same genre as Plastikman, Orbital, The Orb, Moderat, Lindstrom, Aphex Twin, etc then that limited stack of vinyl is wasted on you.
