  1. Pukkelpop 2018

    Belly, as in Throwing Muses/The Breeders Belly? If it's not them then I'm really stuck did for anything on that lineup.
  2. Pukkelpop 2018

    Not that I am particularly fond of the top billed names on the poster, but WOW, the quality really drops off after the headline names. I am by no means on the pulse of new music but on the Friday I have only every listened to Fall Out Boy (about a decade ago), Wolf Alice and Belly. This is a bad lineup, I cannot imagine any great numbers will fancy it. Unless they pull something spectacular out of the bad, they'll be doing free tickets with your GCSE results in order to pull a crowd.
  3. Pukkelpop 2018

    Foo Fighters are a really big name, for me PKP has been a bit lax on what I think of as really big names in the last couple of years. If they have booked Foos then I think the other two headliners will be a bit meh? I do like Foo Fighters though, they were great at Glastonbury and they do always deliver. Let's hope Chokri goes big this year and we're looking forward to Foos, Arcade Fire and A N Other when the lineup drops. All that said, I have not had a bad day at PKP in 5 festivals, so it'll be good times abound no matter what.
  4. Pukkelpop 2018

    I'm going to NOS Alive and Pukkel this year. NOS have already announced Queens of the Stoneage, The National, Future Islands and Pearl Jam. Looking very strong so far. Could be an interesting year for Pukkel, hoping they go big on one of the three headliners.
  5. NOS Alive 2018

    Ahhh, totally missed the lineup this year. Couldn't go so tried to pretend it wasn't happening.
  6. NOS Alive 2018

    Depeche Mode at Mad Cool, could they do NOS too?
  7. Pukkelpop 2018

    I'm definitely coming this year, already booked the flights and hotel. Not overly concerned about the lineup. Based on what you have predicted, I'd like to see Florence. Disclosure are always fun live. I'd happily watch Paramore, what we saw of Netsky a couple of years ago was ace. The Script I cannot abide, never heard a single thing by Chainsmokers and QOTSA are (IMHO) a bit hit and miss. Ellie, meh. So pretty normal Pukkelpop selection based on my tastes. I hope we can see at least one band of the Elbow/Flaming Lips calibre high in the Marquee, disappointed to have missed them this year. Just had a quick look at album releases next year, assuming they will tour in support of the album I want to add Bjork, Spiritualized, Springsteeen and perhaps Belly to the wishlist. But we'll probably get The Offspring and The 1975

    Interesting. Ticketmaster was the one which had nothing at all for Manchester - See had seating for Manchester. I would be surprised if there's not a new date for Manchester. Don't remember there being this clamour for Beady Eye tickets!

    Trying to help a friend out, bit of a joke really. Got through in about 1 minute, all standing tickets sold - seems quick, but what do I know. Presumably they will be on resale sites already (despite promises to cancel the etc)
  10. Pukkelpop 2017

    Well, I have avoided the inevitable for as long as I have been able. The reality is real and I cannot Pukkelpop this year. I have know this for quite some time as my cousin announced her wedding over a year ago. I have avoided the forum as much as I can as I did not want to pain myself further! Finally had a proper look at the lineup, Thursday Main Stage is right up my street, even giving me the opportunity to see Interpol before Editors to see if they do sound as similar as I have made them in my head. Ryan Adams then PJ Harvey would have been great. The Friday run of Flaming Lips, London Grammar, Elbow is magnificent. Saturday is pretty weak for me, there are only a couple of things I want to see and I have seen them before, but it would be a good day to explore bands I have not heard of I suppose. Only 3-4 bands I would want to see though. So, I hope you all have a great time and get to see everything you want to see. I'll offer up a prayer to the weather gods for you and with a fair wind and no family weddings I'll see you here next year. As an aside, Wedding is a week on Friday. On the hen do last weekend the bride (my cousin) broke her ankle, so she'll be in plaster on her wedding day - you have to laugh, or you would cry. have fun!
  11. Neil Young

    I like the sound of that track, I shall be buying this record (now bought)
  12. V Festival banning stage times?

    I've looked at V Festival lineup. It's probably best they don't tell people who's playing. Joking aside, they're clearly trying to stop people selling photocopies of the set times, thus denying V further profit. Surely V is on its last legs. Was at Arcade Fire with my mate, the last V he went to had Morrissey and Radiohead. It's changed, times changed, then V seemingly gave up. Shame, as it wasn't that bad 10-15 years back.
  13. Your favourite bar at Glastonbury?

    The Cockmill, The Avalon Inn and just because I go the a lot Mandela. Always have a good chat with strangers in The Cockmill, plenty of places to sit and decent beers.
  14. 20 years of eFestivals

    20 Years. Blimey. I think I've been here for about 10, seems like only yesterday I was asking stupid questions before V2007, then Glastonbury 2008 and then never looked back.
  15. Trailer Tents in Camper Van fields?

    Mine's 4 Berth. Two double beds. Only small but plenty for the two of us. Have a look here: http://www.rivadandysales.co.uk/ Bloke who owns the place is great, really passionate about the keeping the Dandy brand alive.
