  1. Most 'overbooked' headliner

    I’d be far more up for some of these bands mentioned who are ‘too small’. Increasingly many Pyramid headliners are getting worse atmospheres than they deserve because people expect wall to wall huge hits. Yes the bands should be big, but it doesn’t have to be karaoke throughout

    Yeah that's what I mean - it didn't grab people in the light - and with nothing on screens I think lots of people genuinely had no idea that they were even on stage for a bit.
  3. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Yeah, Daydreaming having no screens and being quite quiet gave the chatters a licence to talk a bit. They didn't open with Daydreaming at the UK dates after this, so the band must have recognised it too. But in the end it was great. They were better at the Roundhouse though

    There were possibly more 'moments' in it than any other gig I have seen for a long time. The reverence for Nude the one that springs to mind right now.
  5. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    The early part of the gig was hampered for me by this really. The screens didn't matter quite so much on a personal level as I'm quite tall and could see a bit (although they would have been useful) but a lot of people around were disgruntled with the screens and many did leave. It was only really from Idioteque on that the whole place seemed to accept it and it reached that other level across the field!
  6. Gorillaz

    They were better live almost immediately after that (late notice) gig and were very good on this tour. They were still working it out in June 2010 but now the transitions between songs/guests are quicker, they have the band knowing more of the old songs (they didn't have 19-2000 at Glastonbury) and there's loads more crowd interaction. Whilst I enjoyed Glastonbury I can see in hindsight why it didn't work for a broader Glastonbury audience The new sets are very upbeat and the album suits festivals much more than Plastic Beach. I think it's a cracking booking.
  7. Gorillaz

    In fairness I think people's opinions of them live were from when they headlined in 2010. It was one of their first big shows in the current live format and whilst I (and others) enjoyed the way it was done, I can see why it didn't translate to everyone. Think those issues are well and truly gone now though. They were a lot smoother as a show by the autumn of 2010, let alone now. They were great in Margate in June and imagine they'll smash Boomtown. I think if they came back and did the Other Stage headliners they would go down very well too.

    A big London date is surely a possibility. They did the Roundhouse dates in 16 but haven't done a big show of their own down south since 2012 have they?
  9. Gorillaz

    Wasn't the critical reaction really good?
  10. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Lotus Flower was my highlight too. Sounded so big
  11. Radiohead Headlining 2017

    Weirdly seem to have some anxiety about this, as if I didn't enjoy it as much as I should... then I put some on and realise it was just the talkers around at the start and remember how glorious it was after I managed to shake. What a night it was.
  12. The National

    Had to run for the train during Terrible Love but was a great gig.
  13. The National

    Thanks for this. Yeah I think I'll get to the back for the encore and then make a move
  14. The National

    What time have they roughly finished the last couple of nights? Sorry if it has been asked but have had to go to London and managed to pick up a ticket last minute, so just looking to find out if I can stay right until the end or not...
  15. Will i get my stuff stolen at Bestival?

    For what it's worth, my mate who's gone had their tent robbed at night. Stay vigilant people.
