    De La Soul would be a great addition, without checking I don't know what day they could play but Friday needs a boost for sure. Shame about Lemon Twigs, really liked the sound of them when researching some bands for Glastonbury last year.

    No idea who PNL are? Black Star sound interesting, used to like Talib Kweli.

    There was a story doing the rounds that they were trying to get Prince to replace Neil Young but due to some convoluted reason I cannot recall (but involving the Prodigy) that didn't happen. Have to say , I really enjoyed Major Lazer but Neil Young is irreplaceable in my book.

    Presumably, ticket sales will have gone "well" in that there will be a core of people (like me for example) who go most years regardless of the line-up. But That core of people might well account for less that half the capacity, then they need to convince people on the strength of the lineup. I think Thursday will have sold well, the others less so. Unless something good drops in the next announcement then I will be very surprised if all 3 days sell out. My first PKP was 2010, top names on the poster were Iron Maiden/Placebo, Snow Patrol/Prodigy and Queens of the Stone Age/2 Many DJ's. So Good, OK, and Meh in equal measures really. Lots of strength near the top of the lineup though. Interestingly (for me at least) looking back at the older posters it was more clear who the headliners/big names were. I googled Pukkelpop 2010 and looked at the first result in images, then Pukkelpop 2014 and looked at the first result in images. 2014 very confusing, alphabetically arranged and making it very difficult to determine who is what (other than font size).

    I've bought tickets. No wait, no queue. I'm 100% committed now.

    Rolling Blackout CF are decent, listening now and I'll almost certainly add them to my "clashfinder". I've crossed Belly off, as it's not that one it's someone else (which was disappointing to be honest).

    Been hammering confidence man on Spotify, really good. Like a poppy LCD Soundsystem to my ears.

    I'm going regardless, hotel and flight booked. It'll be a laugh and, where there's life there's hope.

    Breaking it down like that makes it look marginally better Dave. They could make a huge difference by adding a couple of names a la Elbow, Flaming Lips from last year.

    Presumably then Baby Stormi is their unfortunately named child and not another rapper. As an aside, I have just listened to Travis Scott. 30 seconds of my life I'll never get back. Appalling.

    Kylie, presumably not Minogue? Who are these people?

    Little gem for Friday, JD McPherson. Rokcabilly/R&B/Rock n Roller. Willing to bet it'll be a fun show to watch. Borns sounds pretty good too, at first listen at least. Determined to make a go of Friday, even if it means only watching bands I hadn't heard of until today (but yeah, still weak, I'm a bit more generous than @DiscothequeDave giving the Friday a solid 4/10 after some listens, it was a lucky 2/10 before listening)
  13. Pukkelpop 2018

    Oh well, the PKP giveth the PKP taketh away
  14. Pukkelpop 2018

    Another tip, Confidence Man. Listening now, really good fun electronic pop. They'll be on my list. I'll check out Marlon next.
  15. Pukkelpop 2018

    True R&L is very bad. Certainly fewer highlights than PKP, dismal Friday notwithstanding.
