  1. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Here's an interview with John Giddings saying there will be an announcement at the end of the month. There was also a banner on the official website saying it would be on the 28th of November but that's disappeared. http://iwradio.co.uk/2017/11/09/john-giddings-we-will-announce-isle-of-wight-festival-acts-later-this-month/
  2. Isle of Wight 2018 Festival

    Bought tickets earlier and it was a very quick & easy process but much less satisfying then getting tickets for Glastonbury . I see the campervan tickets are £220 and £320 with hookup + fees, seems expensive but they've sold out already. Here's hoping for a decent lineup and some sun

  4. Dave Grohl & Famous People

    Superb. My friend wanted to take a photo but I didn't think he would appreciate that. Really good to see the artists enjoying the festival as well. We also spotted Jarvis Cocker up by the tipi field, we didn't say hello because he was talking into a portable mic so assumed he was recording something, I did take a picture though.
  5. St Vincent Tour

    Touring in October with a couple of dates in the UK. http://ilovestvincent.com/ FUTUREFEAR is the presale code if anyone is interested in going. I've seen her a couple of times, including near the front at the Park Stage in 2014 and she is very entertaining live.
  6. Dick move of your festival......

    People having conversations seemed rife. During Radiohead, we were quite near the front by the rear barrier, one woman kept shouting a name out, this turned out to be her dad, I think the son was with her as well. The dad pushed his way over to them, intoxicated, flag in hand and they proceded to have a conversation about what they had been watching that day, with me and my friend inbetween. I managed to get the man to move over next to his daughter but then had his flag dangling in mine and others peoples faces. Thankfully they left after about 20 minutes. We all enjoy discussing our day with friends and family but please why not do it inbetween acts or even better when you get back to the tent. I feel really sorry for those people who have had stuff stolen, let's please hope Karma will have the last laugh.
  7. Did you leave a trace?

    We used a trailer tent this year and stopped at West. I checked the area several times before leaving making sure that we hadn't left any trace of rubbish. The bags were then taken to the recycling point. I had a look at the BBC webcam earlier and saw that there are loads of tents etc left. It's probably better than previous years but with the weather being so good this year I had hoped the majority of people would take their stuff. It's a real shame that some people will always treat the place with little respect, there were still plenty of people peeing on the land this year also. My friend gave a few a quick push mid flow which I found amusing.
  8. Chic! What a party

    Brilliant, brought a tear to my eye when he talked about his battle with cancer. What a Legend, band and Venue. Beautiful
  9. The National

    I loved it, stood near the rear of the sound desk and it sounded great to me. Matt was stunning to watch.
  10. Dave Grohl & Famous People

    Shook hands with Thom Yorke earlier he was chilling out near Greenpeace. We thanked him for a Great Show.
  11. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Incredible performance, simply Amazing..
  12. Margo Price

    She was brilliant, great Band. Midwest Farmer's Daughter is worth a purchase for anyone who hasn't already got it..
  13. Dave Grohl & Famous People

    We said hello to Billy Bragg by Croissant Neuf on Wednesday , cool bloke
  14. TBAs

    I reckon the Big Secret is The Hoff..
  15. Blues at Glasto 2017

    I was wondering this too.. These seem like they'd be fun to watch, definitely some Blues influences in there.
