Hm. That's nice.

Can you give us more important information and tell us who's headlining the other stages on Friday? We don't know that yet and a lot of us are looking more forward to that.

she does look like a 50 year old waxwork melting in the heat though, but i guess that's besides the point

I can't, soz. Tho I know there's another announcement coming on Tuesday, so perhaps it'll be in that.

Well I guess that's that. I suspect a few more of my friends will probably want to come now.

We know 2manydjs are headlining the Big Top, but there'll probably be some kind of dancey alternative on in there while Florence is wailing her head off on the main stage.

Florence & The Machine or 2 many DJs? Just as well there is heaps of other stuff at Bestival to keep everyone happy.

If all else fails it'll be Sailor Jerrys!

Didn't I read on the official forums it wasn't there this year?

I'll be in the Psychedelic Worm, probably.

I probably won't be watching her (as I'm going to Optimus and Radio 1 which are likely to have less alternatives) but in the duration of her headline set at Latitude she converted me from a strong disliker to a moderate fan. If it's not your cup of tea then obviously do other things but if you're thinking about it she does put on a good (if at times off key) show...

I watched her at IOW for 20 or so minutes, then moved away. She just screamed, it was awful.

I went to see Crystal Fighters, there was like 15 people watching. They were awesome.

Aw what, I had an absolute blast in there last year, especially when Goldie Lookin Chain turned up.

Could be the Worm for me too then.

balls.

Can't stand the screacher, although this isn't a shock announcement, have we got all the subs? XX, Sigur Ros and?
