Main Stage

Recommended Posts

Based on nothing more than the order they appear on website and posters (& removing the * Thursday artists, pretty sure only 1 so far?) here is the Main Stage with an act time guesstimate just as a gauge to see whether there are likely another act(s) to add. Looks pretty full to me.

CATFISH & THE BOTTLEMEN

RUN DMC THE LIBERTINES
1945      

OCEAN COLOUR SCENE

JAMES SHED SEVEN
1830

THE SHERLOCKS WHITE LIES
1715      

PETER HOOK & THE LIGHT

FUN LOVIN’ CRIMINALS DECLAN MCKENNA

I think that I read that the Tosspots are playing their "Usual" Sunday Dinner Time Slot

Hope calling out has something decent, or t'woodlands

They would need to announce some pretty decent names in the next phase for that to be the line up - the other stages need headliners, too.

Hotpots are definitely at another festival on the Friday. 

Hopefully their tour bus breaks down and they have to remain there lol

The Sherlocks and a few others are on Calling Out, would imagine they'll be headlining

Will Peter Hook and The Light not play before Hacienda on the Thursday?

I thought they said on Radio X that Hooky was supporting Hacienda Classical

I`m guessing that the main stage subs won`t be a straight run of OCS - James - Shed 7 across the weekend.

I like all 3 but that would be crazy stuff in 2018 for the ticket price here.

Hopefully.....they will have somebody fairly decent to come in and play the Saturday sub before Run DMC.

If / when it`s raining and muddy on the Saturday night, the crowd half an hour into Run DMC will be interesting. Could break Frank T`s unwanted record.

I listened to it and would go with this as well.

Yep could be a close thing. It'll probably be rammed at start of set but will thin out quickly if they rain starts

 Playing with, as in on stage with them. So I'd say actually less chance of him supporting!

Yeah it's been confirmed in our fan group by someone linked to the band and James themselves also made an official event - not sure if you're on fb but here's a link anyway https://www.facebook.com/events/1617750761666143/

When you look at this it’s actually shaping up ok.

Id guess fun luvin crims might be up a place and I hope the dub pistols are on when you’ve guessed rather than earlier.

Plenty I don’t fancy which gives time for a wander. I reckon I’ll make a point of seeing a Woodland headliner this year and am still hopeful for someone I like being announced to headline Calling Out.

as I said, i just wrote down in poster/ website order to give an idea of strength and times. looks like only room for 1 more act (2 if Peter Hook is Thursday).

I can still see them announcing another act for Saturday night either after or before DMC which would give them the Snoop Dog slot but still allow them to have pride of place top centre of poster. If this was an issue I can't see it being raised by Catfish or Libertines tbh.

What I will say is imho this is the strongest pre headline main stage in years

would much prefer the dubs to be on the Friday or Saturday. I'm normally in take it easy mode on the Sunday and they're the last band I want to be taking it easy for!

Thanks. Yes, I’ve just looked on fb at confirmed my attendance. That’s my Saturday evening sorted.

That sounds like they are not subbing but lower down card?

I’d say 3rd down 18:00-19:00, good hour to bang the hits out
