  1. Hacienda on, wheel Craig Charles on straight whilst they dismantle and sethe up the next band
  2. The police have dogs trained to sniff them out at football. Suppose they could have them here?
  3. Extremely wishful thinking but love to see Kol subbing foos if they fancy getting on a plane between mainland European dates Friday /Sunday. When asked if they playing their response wasn't no but they the festival have their headliners. First festival they ever played and gave them the bump to headliner. They play second fiddle on the continent at fests, their ego can take it and not as if they need the extra cash.
  4. I enjoy the surprise element of it, its funny how they book hundreds of quality acts, and its the handful of unannounced acts that whips everyone into a frenzy. Good to get everyone out of bed and a big crowd, and then an energetic set from the cribs/hives etc to really kick the day off.
  5. first thing when I saw the name of festival, is that it would go to the wall..
  6. Really is an odd booking. Didn't expect to go down so well on here as it has. Possibly the unexpected surprise, and the fact she's absolutely huge! I wonder if she approached the fest rather than other way round? I doubt she was on the radar for headliner, and a bit cheeky to ask her to not headline. Her team probably know what a good set can do here for future ticket sales. Going to be a massive crowd by the looks of it.
  7. hopefully the national get an other headline slot
  8. was me running it last year, slightly disappointed by the lack of secrets! I think in the twitter age secret sets will die out. Most 'secrets' were from before the fest, people posting the crows nest board, and some tips, most tips were fake tbh, unless I got a second/third tip for the same thing, I didn't post it out. The radiohead thing was my idea of humor, the account was hounded with tweets about radiohead, so put the radiohead tweet out there but the long drop thing to make it an obvious wind up, but then it was apparently not so obvious has hundreds were scrambling for further info
  9. 7 or not, here I come
  10. Could the triggering of article 50 have an influence? Would/Could be buried if they announce line up Wednesday when triggered. European response Thursday/Friday.
  11. Green day?
  12. They were asked about glastonbury and they said they had their headliners in place already, like they wanted to.
  13. Not a usual support though. James Skelly produced their album and they were on his label. He's helping them and exposing a new generation to his own band who were probably in nappies when their hits came out.
  14. Mutual friend told me couple of weeks back. With James Skelly putting about festivals and liking glastonbury stuff, a assumed it was OK to mention it!
  15. The Coral are playing, little addition. No idea on placing would love it to be other opener
