  1. Looks believable apart from Chaka Khan as a headliner???
  2. The Shamen? You sure? Looks like it's a Mr C DJ set
  3. Interpol down as TBC now
  4. Announcement is March 23rd
  5. Can see first announcement being something like The XX, Kasabian. A Tribe Called Quest, Franz Ferdinand, Jesus & Mary Chain, PJ Harvey, Divine Comedy, Rag N Bone Man and Justice amongst others. We'll know for deffo in a fortnight.
  6. Think I saw Happy Mondays and Frank Turner on the tweet before it got deleted
  7. Reckon The Skids could be one of the TBA acts for the Sunday, slap bang in the middle of their 40th anniversary tour and free on the 28th Also The Beat are on a co-headline tour with The Selecter in May so may also be in with a shout of making an appearance?
  8. The Avalanches just liked my tweet asking if they were playing EP next year, probably doesn't mean anything but you never know...
  9. Think we'll get a few of these; The XX, Pixies, The Cure, Justice, Arcade Fire, Bon Iver, Aphex Twin, James, PiL, Erasure, Human League, Richard Ashcroft, Nick Cave, Christine and the Queens, Patti Smith, Jesus and Mary Chain, Kendrick Lamar, The Divine Comedy, White Lung, A Tribe Called Quest, Car Seat Headrest, Danny Brown, Rick Astley for the 80s tent
  10. I'd definitely give Electric Picnic in Ireland a look, loads of different areas and it has a 'festival within a festival' (Body and Soul). The atmosphere is really laid back and friendly and the lineups are consistently good too.
  11. Had a great Picnic as usual, it felt less crowded than last year but maybe I just got lucky. Noticed a fair few more younger kids this year but fair play, they're the future of the festival! A brief summary of what I saw Fri : These Charming Men at the Salty Dog - Smiths covers band and a good fun way to kick off proceedings Broken Social Scene- really enjoyed these Ryan Sheridan - meh Nas - not a massive fan of rap but thought it was a good show Chemical Brothers - got off to a good start but I was a bit bored by the end Sat : Trinity Orchestra David Bowie Tribute - Felt a bit flat in parts but overall it was excellent Lightning Seeds - seemed very out of place on the main stage, their music has dated quite badly Bananarama - top fun, the tent was bouncing! Bell X1 - caught the second half and thought it was great, will definitely check them out Noel Gallagher - Loved it, plenty of singalongs in the rain! I also spent a lot of time at the comedy tent Sun: Dublin Gospel Choir- As usual started my Sunday off with these, always a great way to start the day! Toots & The Maytals - lovely reggae vibes Then spent most of the afternoon at My Lovely Ranch which was a great laugh with the Rubbish Song For Europe James Bay - good grief! What a pile of sh*te! Nathaniel Rateliffe - one of the gigs of the weekend, shame he had quite a small crowd New Order - probably the best I have ever seen them, felt they could have been given a longer set time though Lana Del Rey - only watched the first half but it wasn't too bad
  12. So lineup more or less complete, a couple of decent final additions. Think my final 'must see' list looks something like; New Order, SFA, Chemicals, Lana Del Rey, NGHFB, Trinity Orchestra Bowie Tribute, Blossoms, ABC, Editors, Ezra Furman, Wolf Alice, Toots, The Shins, Nathaniel Rateliff
  13. Wouldn't be surprised to see some of these ; Divine Comedy The Undertones Scritti Politti Two Door Cinema Club Teenage Fanclub Christine & The Queens Slaves Maximo Park
  14. Janelle Monae in 2011 (not sure if she was headlining West Holts or subbing) Chic 2013 SFA 2015 Stones 2013
  15. After a bit of digging, so far we have; Friday - Chemical Brothers, Super Furry Animals, Years & Years Saturday - Noel Gallaghers High Flying Birds, Glass Animals, Girls Names Sunday - New Order, Lana Del Rey, Wolf Alice, Wild Beasts, Aurora
