  1. Tour Announcements & Upcoming Gigs

    that article...
  2. Primavera 2018

    Nick Cave and Patti Smith would both be great additions to the Primavera lineup. Makes perfect sense if they're about the following week. I'm guessing Patti's no longer touring Horses like she was when she last played the festival either.
  3. Liam Gallagher

    There's a few possibilities for LG. He said he'd like to open for The Rolling Stones - could perhaps see that happening next summer if they play Knebworth.
  4. Nick Cave

    Cave will never headline the Pyramid stage, sadly. All we can hope is that they offer him his Sunday sub-headliner slot next time he's touring, and they accept it. You'd imagine The Bad Seeds will be done touring by the time the next festival comes along. Maybe one for 2020?
  5. Primavera 2018

    Flights purchased for this today. Just over £100 from Bristol - pretty good deal! Could Morrissey possibly headline one night? Not sure if he's ever played the festival before...
  6. Primavera 2018

    Anything interesting come from this?
  7. 2019 Headliners

    I'm sure I remember a quote from Michael, maybe via you (?) where Michael said something like: "Oh, do people still listen to them?!" Are they basically doing the opposite of what Prince thought Glastonbury used to do? (using the festivals name to keep them relevant)
  8. 30k more tickets for Glastonbury in future?

    I think this story needs a little more context. That article doesn't exactly go into great detail... Mixed feelings on this one, but I'm sure if they decided to up the capacity by an additional 30k tickets they would have planned and prepared extensively for the effects of this.
  9. 2019 Headliners

    Pretty sure they've been "dropping hints" every year since about 2009. If they wanted to play it that badly, they would have by now.
  10. Bestival 2017

    Got in it on the Wednesday night - very good fun! I'm hopeful that Bestival will continue next year, their social media team has still been fairly active. I would suggest perhaps scaling back on the likes of Common People over 2 sites, and the overseas festivals and concentrating on the mothership.
  11. Murder at Bestival

    Got offered some green rolexes on Saturday night after ATCQ. Promptly told the pusher where to go in no uncertain terms. Bad form, man... http://www.mirror.co.uk/news/uk-news/green-rolex-tablets-shaped-like-8727284
  12. Bestival 2017

    Overall I think Bestival was just about a success. As has been mentioned there was definitely a bit of an older crowd than the last few years, I think that's down to it being on the main land. Camped backstage so can't really comment on the campsites, but when I went to get booze from the car park on Friday I did notice some tents camped at ridiculous angles uphill. They need to give Chris Tofu and Caravanserai more of a budget to program things, that area was bouncing all weekend with proper good vibes. I hope Bestival will be back next year, I think they would need a big lineup to get me to go as a punter, but it's definitely still a fun one to work...

    Do go on...
  14. 2017 first line-up poster

    Anyone wanna have a go at a clashfinder? On a related note, that's got to be the earliest I can remember them announcing the day/stage splits in years.
  15. 2017 festival

    Heard yesterday QOTSA are doing the secret set at Reading. Just confirmed to be playing 6Music on the Thursday. Beaten to it. ^^
