  1. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

  2. Cool Britannia

    Yeah I knew about Truck - and of course, Y-Not, which was even worse, with the Sunday cancelled.
  3. Cool Britannia

    That looks ok then, he did well with the Rewinds, and obviously had a worthy product for Global/Broadwick to take them. I knew they’d acquired Boardmasters but didn’t realise they took Rewind as well.
  4. Cool Britannia

    A lot of those Cool Britannia bands would have been royally screwed by H&G last summer, doubt they’d touch him with a bargepole. Edit: however I am curious. So I searched companieshouse and Impessario Festivals PLC (Rewind, Boardmasters, Field Day?) is in liquidation and winding up proceedings commenced Sept 2017.
  5. All Points East Festival 2018

    There’s gotta be an element of crossover with whatever the 6Music line up is. Although as rumoured to be Belfast, probably not gonna lose many sales to that - but could take out some possible artists.
  6. All Points East Festival 2018

    They’ll be competing with BBC Bigger Weekend from tomorrow as well...
  7. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    I do think they’ll be going this big. Makes me wonder what R&L and Vthing are gonna have up their sleeves if BBC stray into their territory, as they’re generally looking for at least a couple of exclusives.
  8. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Artic Monkeys are free, looking at their announcement today. (Also nothing booked for V weekend and R&L weekend - which I had them as certs for one or the other). Can the Beeb go so big? For sure.
  9. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Yeah, forgot they can go with mainstream stuff - does give them a much bigger.market and a wider pool of headliner potential.
  10. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    It’s getting quite late in the day for this. I wonder if they’ve totally binned off the whole idea. So many other events the same weekend have already made big announcements. Unless they’re planning to go really big (but then again, those acts will be getting tied up with exclusives for TRSMT, R&L, revamped V, etc)
  11. All Points East Festival 2018

    Anyone looking for a reasonable hotel in the area for this I stayed at The Re on Hackney Road recently. lastminute.com “top secret location” deal £60. 4*, decent rooms, excellent bar and restaurant, just a little bit further out from Shoreditch but playing to the same trendy crowd (on a budget!)
  12. Hope and Glory Festival Liverpool

    O'Hanlon just ramble on incoherently, no attempt to properly answer direct questions, just further, "it wasn't me, someone else screwed it up, yes I'm responsible, but not really and I'm going to be sueing people because of this. Blah blah." Absolutely car crash!
  13. Family friendly festivals

    WOMAD doesn't need to do a school as it's not in term time. Having an OFSTED approved curriculum on site does not absolve parents from their responsibilities as parents.
  14. Family friendly festivals

    Bearded Theory - second May bank holiday weekend - and therefore the first weekend of summer half term holiday for most regions. OFSTED approved school curriculum on the Friday enabling parents to legitimately ask to take their children out of regular school for the day. Over an acre of kids area with almost no additional charges for the activities.
  15. Bearded Theory Festival 2017

    Got to venture out to check this dude.
