  8. Paperless has been great for fans - it's reducing touting and remove the extortionate delivery fees, not to mention it's better for the environment. The % of any live concert (a luxury, let's not forget) crowds without a smartphone or means to get one is very small. The people without smartphones will just have to miss out, as they are clearly okay with doing as the practical world becomes more geared to those with portable devices.

  9. renewal taking place! i'll admit to not posting over the last few months and reading just a couple of threads (one religiously everyday) @Toilet Duck is a new hero! However this group is a key part of staying sane and connected. I may not agree with everyone's views on all topics but i do agree with everyones love for the festival. It's what's helping me get through. So Neil take my money please!

  11. It's awful choices for yourself and your friend- your basic human instinct is to want to be close to them and spend time with them and support them, but it's such a big risk to do so. It's been so hard for people with cancer and their friends and families (it is in normal times, but this has taken it to a new level), that's why I get annoyed when people complain about wearing a mask or having to socially distance- like it's a huge hardship. When there's low prevalence, then people with cancer and their carers/families/friends can take a bit more risk and have a bit more contact with

  12. I work for a charity that supports people with cancer- you're the one wanting to avoid restrictions, this is a consequence of that, so stop blaming Hancock for something that's a consequence of what you want. A lot of cancer treatments are life-extending (not cancer-curing) for terminal patients, so that means people go through really horrible, brutal treatments in the hope that it buys them weeks, months or years to make it to key events (like birthdays, weddings, births, etc) or to try and survive as long as they can and buy as much time as they can to spend with loved ones and friends.

  13. @Field Commander Jefferson @Fuzzy Afro Yes, flu changes every year by what we call "genetic drift"...basically small changes that make the virus look at bit different to our immune systems. From time to time, the virus adds in an entirely new bit (picked up from another species usually, hence "swine" flu and "avian" flu) and undergoes what is known as "genetic shift". When these big shifts happen is when we get most big pandemics. The 1918 flu was as a result of this. There are multiple strains of flu that circulate every year. Each year they are typed and a new vaccine is developed base

  19. Funnily enough, I felt more relieved by the start of the lockdown. When it finished (or eased), it was back to a kind of anxiety-inducing no man's land. But when it started, at least it felt like something was being done.

  23. In the phrase "This is just flu." I have a much bigger issue with the word "just" than the word "flu" a novel flu pandemic is just as horrifying a prospect as this coronavirus one.

  24. Yeah it baffles me, the flu argument had a teeny amount of weight at the beginning of lockdown, because deaths at that point were much lower than flu on an average year. - But since then covid deaths have shot past the highest recorded flu deaths in a year, excess deaths is well above average, the fact about long covid and how death isn't the only metric to measuring how badly the virus has hurt people. Not to mention you can get vaccinated for flu at the moment. But yet at every stage of the pandemic you get "This is just a flu." It's so annoying to keep repeating the same obvious

  25. It infuriates me Boris Johnson and Co have had the cheek to announce people need to adapt and change and we can't go back to how they were- they were the ones telling people not to work from home anymore and had to fulfil their duty by returning to the workplace 🤬

  27. There should be fewer Flu cases because of the masks and distancing, there will be fewer at risk of hospitalisation because Covid reduced that number earlier in the year.

  28. It's quite an old account so maybe he's just a bit trigger happy with the downvotes. I'm not a fan of the upvote/downvote system, if someone likes or dislikes a post they can easily comment and explain why, IMO a downvote should only be used for an extreme post, one you vehemently disagree with or find unacceptable, maybe Neil should limit them to one per day then people would only use them as a last resort.

  31. They do test them every day...makes no odds if you then wander off to events outside the building and ignore social distancing and mitigation advice. Makes even less of a difference when you get positive results and just ignore those too, but close contacts head off to fundraisers, hold press briefings and continue on as if nothing has happened (and rather unbelievably, do this with your own positive test while you wait for a confirmation). Testing just provides information, you still have to act on it!

  32. I've never once doubted that Trump had covid. Is it at all unbelievable that he has it? With no mask wearing and unbelievable arrogance? Of course he caught it. His stance has been that it is a hoax - him then pretending to have caught it makes no sense. Even in the (staged) photos from the hospital he looked like death. I believe that of course he caught it, of course it's knocked him for six and the only possible way of him spinning things back in his favour is to then PRETEND that he's 'beaten it', hence prematurely rushing himself back out of hospital and recording whatever the fuck

  34. Actually, I'm gonna add Galvanize from last year's set to my list. The silence and darkness and then the opening "don't hold back" just teed the crowd up perfectly, the tease of the two-note lead in, that drop, the dancing dude lightshow, and the way the whole track was kept quite low par for about 3 minutes and then the MASSIVE drop and mix with Siren....that still gives me goosebumps every time.

  38. My guess is it's a combination of the both i.e. a reasonable level of immunity in the population is required (through prior infection) and more importantly that some of the most vulnerable are protected (though vaccines). This in turn allows for the inevitably imperfect testing regime to take place at mass events. If testing was 100% accurate it would be different - but it will never get to that level so both required. The whole world does not need to get vaccinated, just a reasonable number plus good testing.

  39. I think a lot of people in this industry have given up on vaccines. That option is less and less likely in such a short notice, and especially considering that you wont be able to have vaccine in January for example, and then expect the whole world to get vaccinated before April / May. It will take 8-12 months at least. And nobody can guarantee vaccine in the next 6 months, a year, 2 years ? I believe people will turn their attention and hopes into quick testing, quick results, and letting only covid negative people into their events.

  40. wasn't sure where to put this obviously stolen from elsewhere but I think it will hit a chord with many ..... I want to go to a concert. A really loud concert. I want some oblivious tall dude to block my view. I want to stand in line at the bar 6 people deep. I want to pay £6 for a beer after I wait 25 minutes for 2 girls to decide which fruity drink to order. I want to wait in a bathroom line with some random drunk dude telling me how this is the best show he’s ever seen. I want to run into someone between sets that I haven’t seen in 10 years and make small talk. I want to push through a

  41. Not sure if it was mentioned in another COVID-19 thread but the Hellfest organiser is pretty pessimistic about next year and the future of festivals in general in this interview (it's in French). But he does share a hope for rapid testing. A significant takeaway from it is that he estimates his own decision on Hellfest going ahead to be made in January, because of the time of going into production being around six months for his festival. He outlines that this is similar for the major touring artists, and I would suspect that it's a similar timeframe for all major festivals. Seems fairly

  42. S2H, given that you're my go to person for naming the songs, I'll try to add some details here, and I'm sure you'll correct me. Prizefighter, Eels 100% bad bitch song, Lizzo. Common People, Pulp secret Park show (thanks SecretGlasto, er, Stu) Mik Artistik and the New York Brass Band's improvisation, when he overran his slot on the bandstand. Most of the Cure, last time. Arctic Monkeys, where he wants the girl to pretend to be somebody else. The encore by Arcade Fire with the masks/heads. Creep (I know, clichéd) Radiohead, but the last time they played.
