  1. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    They played Moving On later in the set. I've no idea what the song was they skipped. They barely even started, but it was very slow.
  2. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    It was more the way he stopped the song and then made it sound like an insult toward the crowd. It didn't come across well at all. It's a big ask to expect complete silence.
  3. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    I don't remember the penis bit, but I think it was 2014 maybe 2015. They had pulled a black curtain right across the top tier. The one thing that stood out was when they started off playing off a low key song and Tim suddenly stopped due to a little background noise. He said something along the lines of "Glasgow on a Saturday night isn't place to be doing this........." It came across as rude and the crowd did boo a bit. It was a bit awkward.
  4. Run DMC as Saturday headliner

    It's a very small and amateurish festival. It's not a big deal at all. Most of the custom is oldies that won't leave their deckchairs. The Lightning Seeds nearly pulled last year after learning The Sun was involved. It turns out The Sun only sponsor the breakout stage and The Lightning Seeds reconsidered their last minute pull out. That stage was the size of a car and had bad pub bands playing any time I went up. It's not a big deal. Likewise it's only supported by the local Forth radio and not across the Bauer radio network. Is Glen's Platinum vodka a big hitter? They never had much presence other than a ball pit and the vodka being served behind the bar. The bars were empty all day. Never once did we have to stop as they had more people serving than drinking. The festival is far too small to be worthwhile throwing big money behind. The capacity is 7000 and it was far from a sell out on Sunday last year. They do give some money to local charities, but it's very much a profit making event. The last time I went to see James Live was at The Hydro supported by Starsailor. The complete top tier and half the second tier was all closed off. Great band, but they aren't the attraction they once were. They also headlined that farcical festival in Liverpool last year.

    James are headlining Party at the Palace in Linlithgow this year. It's only a small 7000 capacity festival.
  6. What's everyone think then?

    I really enjoyed my first visit to Kendal Calling last year. Sadly that line up isn't worth us coming back down this year. None of the headliners interest me at all. Run DMC is a strange booking. It should still be good fun, but I'll try something new this year.
  7. Hands Up If You Hate The Hotpots

    Add me to the list. I don't get them at all.
  8. Belladrum 2018

    Further announcements of Paloma Faith, The Charlatans and The Supernaturals today. Amy McDonald had previously been confirmed as a headliner and Frightened Rabbit to headline the Hot House stage. Craig Charles is on the bill as well. I like The Charlatans and Frightened Rabbit. Any McDonald is ok, but her days of being a headliner has past in my opinion. She didn't have the pulling power to sell out the 7000 capacity Party at the Palace. I notice Paloma Faith has stepped up to an arena tour this year too. I didn't think she was that big and her recent TV performances have been disappointing. She sounds as if she sings through her nose now. I'm half tempted. The last headliner has to be a big band to convince me. What's the thought of everyone? Any good rumours?
  9. TRNSMT Festival 2018

    It's all a bit predictable isn't it? Liam Gallagher has done very well to raise the profile of his new album. It'll be forgotten by July and his placement as a headliner will seem odd.
  10. Who would you like to headline in 2018

    As long as Rick brings along his new best friends. There's some colourful language at the start.
  11. Half way to selling out already

    Presented with such interest who wouldn't take advantage of the demand? I've heard figures from 25,000-35,000 for this year. It's always hard to guess, but I thought the top estimate was more accurate. There was a lot of people. No Glastonbury and people avoiding Y Not there is a market there for Kendal Calling to be a big festival. Question is will they do that and is it what the regulars want?
  12. Standout act of the festival

    Cheers. The links worked as soon as I clicked over to desktop. Thursday was one video rather than individual sets, but that's all I need. There's no sub forum for it, bit I'm standing in the queue for Party at the Palace. I'm here with my daughter.l so it won't be a drunken festival. We've got Kaiser Chiefs, Ash and The Lightening Seeds as today's main bands. I've never seen Ash before, but the Kaiser Chiefs are always great.
  13. Standout act of the festival

    Have all the Twitch streams been removed? I sat down to watch them tonight and can't get the page to load.
  14. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    I see the dodgy guy that everyone is blaiming isn't listed as a director of the company at Companies House. It's his wife! Sounds even more dodgy.
  15. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    This is going to be a long drawn-out saga. I can't see a good ending for those looking for a refund.
