I'd be happy with the Chems headlining Other. Seen Underworld, Prodigy, Orbital. Just need to cross Groove Armada and The Chems off the list. I would add Basment Jaxx to that but there new stuff is w*nk.

i think from rob da banks point of view, a glastonbury slot will only help build excitement for their bestival set.

I feel like their live shows will be pretty much the same thing every night so if they headline other and broadcast it might put people off as it'd be the same set?

Also are underworld bestival exclusives yer?

Definitely looking on going bestival and parklife this year

Surprised at Disclosure and Rudimental doing Parklife given the Wildlife festival

Nonetheless Parklife actually looks great this year I think, it's a place I've never been, always been put off my reports of the crowd

People die and nothing gets done about it, cracking atmosphere.

Musically it's pretty good though.

Doesn't quite sound like the kind of festival I'm interested in, shame their line up is top

It wasn't 'that' bad when I went 2 years ago, obviously knobs around but I didn't really see any trouble at all and thoroughly enjoyed it. I'm right in the demographic for it though...

I went 2 years ago and it was full of bell ends.

The chems are a strong rumour now...

Nice. I must say i didn't think bestival made them less likely - but maybe that's just wishful thinking.

well shit i guess i may be wrong then - although don't think i've ever been so happy to be wrong. would've loved them to be up against Coldplay, but that happened in '11, so up against Foos please (or, if she's headlining, Flo)

Don't do it! we had loads of people in our shop in their wellies buying up all the vodka and throwing stuff around, shouting at each other and generally being ****s, I only went down to get some milk as well, nightmare.

Think student freshers week mixed with aggressive lads who go the gym too much and get fake tans.

Last night on Flying Lotus' BBC residency show, the Gaslamp Killer said that he is touring with a band this summer and that there were some European festivals that he was not allowed to mention yet that he will be playing, so that is a possiblity.

Where to start with them? I know Lotus and I really like that but I don't know anything else

i got the album a month back, it's good but some of the tracks leave you scratching your head and wondering why they are on there. I like the song Control, it reminds me of Horse Power by The Chemical Brothers.

As discussed a couple of pages back, he's supposedly an exclusive for Bestival (I say "supposedly" as these exclusive claims often turn out to be pretty bogus).

Doesn't bother me much tbh. His new album is too much like the Fast Show's Jackson Jeffrey Jackson for comfort:

Most of the people who go Parklife do not know what freshers week is. Apart from that I agree with you.

Yeah I was talking about Gaslamp Killer, sorry if the wording was confusing. Too bad about Fly Lo being a Bestival exclusive though. His shows are fun

Only been to one parklife. (Ian Brown at platt fields)

The crowd were awful and by all accounts they have got worse.

Heaton Park is about 1 and half miles from my house, the line up is decent, but I have sod all interest.

Manchester crowds are often full of a certain type of idiot, one I don't often see in most cities. Think: Danny Dyer meets Liam Gallagher, they all go to the gym a lot, snort a lot of "beak" and think manchester is the entire universe.
