  1. Yeah, every artist that day had no problem to wear a bracelet. Even Icons like Depeche Mode. But the manager from 30 seconds to Mars refused this. Something that does not happen that often. Jared Leto doesn’t wear something like that he said (to be honest, big chance Jared had no problem with that, but it is most of the time that the entourage is difficult, not the artist). And they put a sign on every door with the pictures of the three band members on it. With the message: they can go anywhere they want and the people that are with them too. Andy Fletcher and the other keyboardguy started

  2. Good morning. I tested negative. I guess that’s good news but I still don’t feel well. I’m going to stay as I am self isolating until I feel better! Thanks for all the well wishes!

  3. Sick of being told to "get back to work". I've worked every bloody weekday since mid March, give or take one or two, and I'm fucking knackered thanks very much. Just because I didn't get on a train to do it doesn't mean I haven't been working.

  4. Evening team, Mrs C gave birth to baby number 2 this morning, a beautiful little girl called Rosie, which was obviously my idea. Vanderlyle, Rylan, Carin, Karen and Abel were all quite rightly vetoed.

  6. I'll be honest, at this stage I couldn't give two hoots who the headliners are. If there's a fest going ahead, I'll manage. If ever there was going to be a year when the bookers should be cut some slack over who they get, it's this one. Obviously stuff I'd prefer to see, and as a trio I'd find something like AM, Muse and Florence a "disappointment", but I'd get it. I just want to be in a field!

  7. Totally no effect. The only events that have effect are Pinkpop and BKS. Pinkpop because they are partners and they announce some acts the same time. BKS because they sometimes share an important act, it is very close to Belgium and they don’t want that people buy a BKS ticket instead of RW. But we can expect some news in the next week. Including the sunday headliner. And a brand new promo campaign.

  8. Convincing my mum and dad to see LCD at the end of a very trudge-y weekend was next level special. My da (in his 60s) was peripherally into the band but I'd had to briefed my mum that day on what to expect – a bit of Talking Heads, Grace Jones, Bowie, all of that. Wasn't sure they were going to make it but they turned up half-smashed on a bag of wine, we met by the sound barrier just as the band walked on stage and it was magic. Mum kept turning around and mouthing this is amazing. Best bit came during Losing My Edge, because my mum – to her credit – did actually live through most of

  9. For the billionth time Matthew - if you strip out the areas I’ve listed above, and they would have to, what are you left with? Pyramid, Other, Holts and a severely reduced Park. That’s pretty much it. The festival has already sold its full allocation of 135k tickets with minimal returns requested. They cannot reduce capacity to compensate for the reduced services on site. All that’ll happen is the thousands of people who would be hanging around the SE Corner, Dance Village, Theatre and all those places will simply descend on the open areas, making them even busier and defeating the purpos

  10. yI have never managed to see Muse live. I've been to see them twice (both at festivals) but never gotten to their set. One Leeds I went with the sole intention of seeing Muse - must have 2006 as I remember seeing Pearl Jam and the Arctic Monkeys. However, towards the back end of the Arctic Monkeys if started lashing down, like heavy biblical rain, so me and my friend decided we would cut out get a few pints and finish off some spirits we had snuck in. The remainder of the night got a little blurry from there - I remember talking to a stranger who convinced me to go and see the Raconteurs

  11. So this is probably too personal but a few of you know that I can struggle with my moods and anxiety. Today I decided to get professional help and have self referred to have some Cognitive Behavioural Therapy in a hope that I can learn why I struggle so badly with my sexual orientation and confidence, and then learn how to help myself. Fingers crossed this will prove to be a worthwhile step.

  12. For anyone who is following my daughter's COVID test from yesterday, we've got the results back and she's negative, which means school tomorrow, friend's birthday party this afternoon, Grandma visits and I can pop to the shop!

  13. They locked down too slowly and too late to replicate what happened in the likes of New Zealand and re-opened too fast and too quickly to have something sustainable like in Sweden. The UK government has either by design or incompetence tried to find a halfway house between those two options and has wound up achieving neither. A monumental fuck up by a parcel of rogues who aren't fit to run a bath.

  16. We've had a smack on the wrist from 'steviewevie' for hogging his thread, so I've tried to keep this as concise as I can(!) I believe the Oil and Tobacco industries lied and manipulated public opinion because I have seen strong evidence of this. Specifically, I've seen impressively strong agreement amongst medical researchers that tobacco is a carcinogen (NB: the pre-1960 figures you quoted relate to US doctors - not the research community) and I've seen indisputable evidence that the tobacco industry paid the PR Industry and corrupt 'scientists' to distort the debate - e.g. internal tob

  18. I don’t really want to elaborate on here but I was supposed to be going to live and work in germany permanently from May onwards but I lost my contract due to corona. It’s been a really tough time and it’s part of the reason I’ve headed out there, but as I said, it’s not what I want to elaborate on. Im still nervous of the virus, I’m nervous of passing it to others more vulnerable and at the end of the day I’m only nervous because people don’t stick to the rules. If I knew everyone was going to wear a mask and social distance properly, then I wouldn’t have to be nervous, I’m only nervous

  25. Oh go on then...so, at no point has the guidance to wear masks been on the basis that they will prevent aerosolised transmission of the virus. They will however lower the distribution of droplets, which all the current evidence suggests is the primary route of transmission (this may change, but at the moment, that's what the evidence is). If you don't want to wear a mask, then that's your choice, but don't pretend it's because you are "following the science" (in Ireland it will get you a €2500 fine and up to 6 months in prison, but hey ho). Or maybe you are just being contrary for the sake of

  27. Hello all, Ten months ago (back in the optimistically, yet dark, days of post-sale October 2019 ) a crack resale team was assembled and sent to the internet to gain access to a festival they didn't get tickets for. These group of renegades promptly hounded the efestival servers as they escaped from the doldrums to the positivity of @Big durbs in the Resale Club. Today, still wanting tickets, they survive as efest posters. If you have no tickets, and no one else can help, and you know how to use your F5 finger... maybe you can use... the Resale Spreadsheet. *heroic music - dur dur du

  28. Christ on a bike, can you two please give it a rest? It wasn't a personal attack on you Ozanne, it just questioned the validity of an article that you put up for discussion. Given the nature of mainstream media reporting, it's not a bad shout to look past the headlines a bit. This thread is depressing enough without wading through pages of sniping as well.

  32. @incidenthas covered most things! I’d be surprised if it was mandatory, the flu shot isn’t and this will likely be used in a similar manner (unless it turns out that even asymptomatic infection does untold damage to those infected...even though we are still only learning about this virus, that looks unlikely on a widespread scale)...I’d expect the vaccine to be available to high risk populations, with options for those in close contact with high risk individuals. Most vaccines don’t provide ever-lasting sterilising immunity to everyone who gets them, no reason to suspect this will be any

  35. Not especially, though I didn't hear it all. No news about PS21 anyway. They were sounding off about the live music sector, which they see as an essential service, being hard done by the Spanish authorities and how the different promoters need to work together and lobby the govt. Going to carry out their own experiments on how safe it is to attend indoor concerts. Read they're hopeful that there will be covid tests with immediate results available for punters at the entrance to shows. They finished on an optimistic note despite everything.

  36. You caught me...I want your DNA so I can clone you! (Btw, the ID now test is a molecular test, the one we were taking about earlier is an antigen test...works on protein, no genetic data involved at all, but don’t let that knock the tinfoil hat off your head! 😜)... edit: sorry, I’m being a bit smart. There’s nothing wrong with asking questions, it’s how we get answers. It does help if you are open to hearing the answer you get though.

  40. I’m in. Is this what is being asked? If it’s cold I’ll put a fleece on. If it’s cold at night I’ll take two sleeping bags. It’s it rains it’s no different to a rainy day in June. Fantastic that there is a plan b for 2021.

  41. I actually commend R+L for booking new headliners - be nice to see some new bands and artists getting a shot at the top spot. Better than a festival like Download that just play it safe every year.

  43. Headliners in 2021 should only be acts who've appeared in the Simpsons. I give you... Saturday night Pyramid, Friday night Park Stage, Friday Pyramid "rock slot" and Sunday night West Holt's (featuring the London Symphony Orchestra, obvs). And of course, there's always the dream reunion...

  47. We are now back from being in a field with beer and live music. 3 stage event at Glastonbury Abbey, 1700 punters with 15 odd acts. I didn't realise how much it was missed or what it meant to me until about half way through the first set. I think we needed to be back in that environment again, it was irrelevant that the acts were not international superstars, it was live music in an outdoor setting. Quite emotional really. The bands all said how much playing again meant to them after 6 months lock down. I needed that more that I realised. LIfe is coming back people, keep the faith.
