  1. PSB vs PSB

    Too right. I've been to every Glasto since 1992 and the PSBs in 2010 is by far the best set I've ever seen on the farm. Everyone I speak to that was there says pretty much the same - it was a phenomenal gig. Neil and Chris have both said it's one of their favourite shows they've ever played too.
  2. Justice out, Soulwax in!

    Which begs the question why did they get booked on the same evening? Very odd, surely Bestival knew the staging spec long before the week before the festival?
  3. Tom Waits

    I guess if he played (which he never will, let's face reality) he'd headline West Holts? He'd probably be better suited to Acoustic but it'd likely be Portishead 95 all over again. I'd be happy if he ever plays any UK gigs again, let alone Glasto.
  4. Secret Garden Party 2017 Alcohol

    It doesn't have an arena/campsite divide; once you're in the gates, that's it.
  5. Levellers

    Just to add, they didn't headline NME in 92. They played 3rd on the Pyramid on Saturday evening, before Lou Reed and Shakespear's Sister. NME headliners that year were Primal Scream, The Shamen and 808 State.
  6. Avalon announce

    The Mavericks! Wonderful news, their last 2 albums have been ace. Really strong showing from Avalon this year.
  7. Comedy/Cabaret

    Bramble FM are always unmissable. Great way to spend 3 hours in the afternoon, watching chaos unfold.
  8. Foo Fighters announcement "engages" 20 million

    Excellent, that clears it up nicely.
  9. Foo Fighters announcement "engages" 20 million

    What kind of marketing c**t hole refers to someone going on the internet as an 'engagement'?
  10. Watched Over by our Loving Overlords

    Comrade Bamber has, pretty consistently, the greatest music taste of anyone on these here message boards. Loving your work, brother.
  11. Bearded Theory Festival 2017

    Could be miles off but I reckon the final headliner might be Frank Turner. Or maybe DKM or Flogging Molly if they're in Europe at the time which doesn't look likely.
  12. Bestival 2017

    Yeah, I was going to bring up MBV as an example of RDB being pretty eclectic with headliners from the start. You could argue the same with The Magic Numbers and Gogol Bordello, too. 2009 headliners of Massive Attack, Kraftwerk and Elbow didn't exactly shout out '10 pills a night at the main stage' either. I think the crowd for the first 3 or 4 years was very 'Big Chilly' and then has got a little younger and party-centric each year. Or maybe I've just got older.

  14. Boomtown Fair 2017

    For the Town Centre I reckon they might try for DKM, Rancid and Underworld. I guess Frank Turner will play some year, being a Winchester (Tory) boy and all that jazz.
  15. FatboySlim,time he HL'd Other Stage

    2005. And he was way past his sell by date even then.
