  1. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    If Invaders of the Future Stage is go this year then that’s still to be announced.
  2. Latitude 2018

    It wouldn't surprise me if Saturday day tickets sell out fairly quickly.
  3. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Oh dear. Well if they are confirmed there's till plenty more for me to do. I'm not an 'all about the headliners' sort of person anyway.
  4. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    In what way did they flop at Isle of Wight? Do you think if they are the other act they might suit a Bestival crowd more?
  5. Latitude 2018

    Rae Morris did the Lake Stage. Not last year but either 2016 or 2015 (can't remember which) Sigrid was in the woods at the I Arena last year. It was busy for her even then so if she returned she would definitely be on one of the two bigger stages.
  6. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    So the arguments look pretty compelling for RUN DMC. Now let's warch Bestival go and announce someone that none of us have thought of. Ha ha ha.
  7. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Could be.... Also with Royal Blood not announced for Reading does this increase the chances of them being at Bestival perhaps? Rob da Bank has always alluded to the fact he’d like to have a rock headliner (they were going to have Muse once but that went a bit pear shaped).
  8. Latitude 2018

    I think this is a good line up. The Killers will shift tickets, Solange is an interesting choice as headliner (perhaps Latitude trying to ensure they can defend any lack of diversity arguments) albeit Wolf Alice or Rag N Bone Man could have easily filled the slot. Alt-J an odd choice considering they headlined so recently but they are very 'Latitude' imo. There's a strong undercard musically and very much my cup of tea. Suspect I'll have plenty of clashes this year. Edit: Forgot to say that yay for 2 of the best Oz bands out there playing. Gang of Youths produced one of the finest albums of last year (Go Farther In Lightness) which hasn't had that much profile in the UK even although in their homeland it was an award winner / no.1 and Confidence Man for stupid dance moves and cartoon pop silliness. Both very different but both very good.
  9. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Just noted on London Grammar's website they have Bestival listed as the Isle of Wight. That could be an embarassing ferry ride back if nobody tells them!
  10. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Invaders of the Future was my one dissapointment last year due to the noisebleed and also I thought the booking on that stage wasn’t that strong with 3 or 4 exceptions. (I run a new music blog so maybe I’m too specialist!) Mind you, there’s hope for this year - some strong new music in The Big Top so hopefully the same for this stage.
  11. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Maybe that's because of moving the date to immediately after Camp Bestival? It must reduce their infrastructure costs? (Excluding contingency for if it rains heavily at Camp Bestival )
  12. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I've been to all the Bestival's since the first (except 1). There has always been the comedy / novelty / holiday camp aspect to it from the off. That's what partly appealed to me. In fact the very first year what sold me was that they had Fatboy Slim and Morris Dancers! Let's also remember Bestival hasn't always had big headliners: Gogo Bordello, The Bees, My Bloody Valentine (who although might be considered 'big' didn't actually pull a large crowd) At the end of the day the line up is what it is and you take your choices on going or not.
  13. Victorious Festival 2018

    Just seen something that suggests it’s Weller (and Friendly Fires added as well). Relatively reliable source but not always 100%
  14. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Just out of interests what would be a great line up for you? (Based on the festival size) And why is this shite?
  15. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    On the line up poster why is the Friday headliner (mainly) blanked out rather than just saying TBC? Are they trying to give a clue for someone to work out?
  16. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I really like this line up. It very much feels like the Bestival's of old. And it looks very different to many of the line ups of the bigger festivals. I mean...Chaka Khan, East 17's Christmas Party and London Grammar. That's pretty all over the place... how I like it! Good to see Stacey's is back as well...I loved that place last year and sacked off A Tribe Called Quest because of it.
  17. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    There's a tale to be told about Gaga and Bestival. Apparently when she was just starting out and before she was famous Rob Da Bank was offered her for Bestival but turned the offer down. I seem to remember reading somewhere it was one of his regrets.
  18. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    So Lionel Ritchie is touring. His head has been at Bestival. There have been DJ sets which bookended with his music at Bestival. Can we lob him on the possible list?
  19. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I would be very up for Britney doing all the hits on Friday night. After all she did have an album called Circus.
  20. So, who do you really want for 2018?

    Orbital have got to be a good chance with the Camp B line up now announced. Other guesses: Jessie Ware, Billie Eilish, Idles, Pale Waves, Mabel for somewhere on the bill.
  21. Victorious Festival 2018

    What are the guesses for the other 2 headliners and castle stage? Do you think they'll follow last year and put something for the young un's as Castle Stage headliners? An x-factor type or maybe a DJ? I'm surprised Fatboy Slim hasn't done Victorious yet.
  22. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    A level students usually have to enroll the Thu or Fri of Bestival I believe.
  23. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Ha ha. This sounds an amazing idea.
  24. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    I think the early birds at £139 are but then there’s the eco bond, booking fees, parking etc. It looks like Bestival is going to stick at being a mid sized festival rather than trying to compete at the 50k + capacity levels when they had Stevie Wonder etc based on those prices.
  25. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    He did use the word selfishly in his tweet - and let’s face it one of the reasons Bestival is still going - they’re not afraid to make hard business decisions. Also here’s what Bestival say in a tweet
