  1. 2017 festival

    They've made a big deal this year about when specifically the times will be announced, so I'm guessing they're all coming at once now. Even by Festival Republic's standards, even they must have realised how monumentally stupid it was to stagger the release of the stage times.

  3. 2017 New Music Thread

    Hasn't hit the mark yet after about half a dozen listens, for me. Saw them play a few new tracks on Friday and it would be fair to say they didn't go down well. Though their regular sound issues didn't help.
  4. 2017 festival

    Ah thanks, hadn't spotted that prior to stumbling across a few bands at the bottom of the line-up page. Would guess the Jack Rocks line-up won't contain too many surprises, given many of the same bands have appeared on their various pop up stages at other festivals.
  5. 2017 festival

    The BBC announcement is all over the place. A handful of names announced by the festival are not on the BBC line-up page. Meanwhile, some acts have been announced for the Jack Rocks stage at Reading. Bang Bang Romeo, Broken Witt Rebels, The Blinders, The Sundowners, The Wholls, Trampolene, White Room.
  6. Neighbourhood Festival, Manchester

    Yeah I'm in for this year having missed the inaugural 2016 edition. Redfaces, The Big Moon and The Amazons excite me. Anyone else going along?

    2017 - Some of the best bands, people and weather this year. The best weekend of my life, let alone best Glastonbury. 2013 - A golden maiden Glastonbury. Arctic Monkeys and Rolling Stones will live long in the memory. 2015 - A dreamy Suede set and Lionel Richie killing it on Sunday. 2014 - A pinch yourself moment watching boyhood heroes Metallica headline inbetween Crystal Fighters dominating amid an electric storm. 2016 - Only had one genuinely enjoyeable headliner in Coldplay as the sticky mud made it a real slog. Different answer tomorrow, probably.
  8. October Drift

    After grabbing an early morning pick-me-up I wandered through the dust and the rain to watch this. Knew of them before the fest so not a 'discovery' as such, but certainly one of the best new bands I saw all week. Smashed it and they appeared genuinely humbled by the whole occasion. Close to the best thing I saw on Sunday.
  9. The Park 2017

    Almost disappointed by Emily's comments about changing the Park for 2019. I'm all for evolution, but it is my favourite part of the site. What do we think she could mean?
  10. Michael Eavis Q&A

    Went along to the Michael Eavis Q&A on Sunday afternoon for the first time. Bar the self-indulgent questions and a weird song regarding compost toilets some really interesting subjects were raised. You'll have seen the Corbyn stuff and the 2018-reform band thing but below is a review of the session. Includes something on the Brian May feud, a subject which has been raised on here a lot. Worth a read, even if it is on Somerset Live. http://www.somersetlive.co.uk/whats-on/whats-on-news/17-things-learned-glastonbury-michael-142194
  11. Glastonbury 2017 Awards

    Best Act: Foo Fighters Best Song: Emmylou Best Discovery: Glass Animals Most Frequented Stage: John Peel
  12. Confirmed secret sets 2017

    Frank was certainly very outspoken during his set. He threatened men who sexually assault women during with depapitation. I am of course disgusted by that behaviour and applaud the denouncement, but not sure if he went about it in the right way. Only a hunch, and in the absence of any other evidence, maybe they were pulled?
  13. Surprises

    Did the same having walked from Radiohead to The Park, caught the end of Flaming Lips and then marched up the hill. My first time at the Crows Nest and loved it. Was glad having been forced to give their JP slot a miss.
  14. The size of the crowds

    No accounts of dangerous crushes for me this year. The sticky mud made last year much worse. Killers was very busy and I had to abandon two trips to SE corner but having waited until after the headliners it was naturally busy.
  15. Largest Crowd of the Weekend?

    Didn't physically stay and watch RnB but the railway line at the time was incredibly busy which gives some sort of indication as to the sheer volume of people there. Beat Blondie from 2014 easily, which was previously the biggest I'd seen on the Other.
