  1. BBC biggest weekend

    It'll probably be the same firm doing the bars as all Singleton Park gigs. That's the case for proms in the park when they do it there, which is a Swansea Council/BBC joint event. Never had any problems sneaking spirits in mind you...
  2. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    Feels like they've kind of just spread the budget for their usual Radio 1 Big Weekend and 6 Music Festivals over 4 cities rather than the 2 they would usually be hosted in. I don't think any of them are due to be multi-stage events are they?
  3. Sziget Festival 2018

    I would say 18-35 was the general age demographic when I went, loads of Dutch people there too. Not so many swinging jaws, although if you go to watch an act on the Colosseum stage at the right time of the early morning you may spot a few...
  4. Mad Cool 2018

    Sleaford Mods must be in with a shout for this one? Got some European festival dates announced, but none in Spain as of yet...
  5. Lineup 2018

    Jesus, don't think there's 5 artists on that lineup that I would be interested in seeing. But then again, I suppose I'm probably not R&L's target demographic. Will be interesting to see how it sells...
  6. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Jungle have just announced a tour. Would fit the description in the video. Tickets are on sale next week, so giving them the rest of the month to sell out would make sense before announcing them.
  7. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Massive Attack.
  8. Rolling Stones

    Isn't Old Trafford notoriously shit for gigs and boxing? (And football...)
  9. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    Could be The Streets? Fronted by Mike Skinner and Kevin Mark Trail. Not a clue tbh. I just hope they don't hold off for like 2 months before announcing the last headliner, like they have before...
  10. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    The more I look at it, the more I think it's been a good move to have at least 2 female headliners on the main stage, even if I've seen them both before at Bestival in the last few years. Getting lots of good press, interesting that this article says 60% of the attendees at Bestival are female: http://www.bbc.co.uk/news/entertainment-arts-42972902 On a different note, I wonder if they're getting rid of the Invaders of the Future stage? It had terrible noisebleed issues last year, Fatman Scoop on HMS Bestival drowned out Honeyblood (no mean feat...)
  11. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    1 member of Hot Chip DJing, like every year, would be my guess...
  12. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    This is my feeling as well. Hope they can make a success of it, a big headliner like The Streets or Arcade Fire on an exclusive would really help shift tickets. I think the type of people who would be interested in Britney wouldn't necessarily want to go to Bestival, especially with her playing a few dates around it... I'll probably be working it again. I would say the undercard is stronger this year than the last few festivals, and I hope that they will continue to put more emphasis on the smaller venues like Stacey's and Caravanserai.
  13. Bestival 2018 incoming!

    He's doing Reading & Leeds isn't he? Probably one of the hardest ones to predict in recent years.
  14. BBC's The Biggest Weekend 2018

    I'd imagine this would be held in Singleton Park. When we used to have Escape in The Park it had a capacity of about 30,000. Only other place I can think of is where they held the Eisteddfod in Velindre in 2006. But that's WELL out of the way.
  15. Primavera 2018

    Seth Troxler Disco Set down on the beach is gonna be fantastic.
