  3. Squid?!?!? Best act on the line-up by a margin. They were immense at Latitude. If you haven't listened to Bright Green Field your in for a treat. There's not many bands making music like Squid right now, they're something pretty special.

  7. Alternatively, new acts don't have to deal with the preconceptions and scrutiny of a fanbase who think they know better than the artist what they should be doing.

  9. Just had our first wander about the site ,and first beer it’s utterly magical being back on the farm. And seeing all the kids enjoying themselves. Got a pyramid view from the tent and had my first experience of the compost lavs as they are always too busy during the festival

  14. A crude test when an artist does something a little bit different is to ask yourself: if you heard this from a nobody newcomer, would you still give a shit?

  18. Lots of horrific clashes, but to a degree that’s a consequence of managing to pull together a decent line-up. As far as day splits go, there’s limited scope to ask bands to play specific days, given that EotR is often just one date amongst many that need to be managed as a whole tour. Not to mention real life factors too. This year more than any, the organisers deserve loads of credit and leeway for putting something, anything, on. And we all deserve a cracking festival. Put the minor EotR changes or inconveniences to one side, we’ve had more than enough really significant stuff to deal with over the past 18 months.

  19. Not thrilled with those splits got to be honest Fair enough it's the weakest line up for years cos of covid but sticking all the hottest acts on the sunday, when lots of people are taking it steady for the drive home at that, Well, ain't ideal is it.

  20. I always forget EOTR show the latest films first on the listing and thought they were showing "Midsommar" to a tent full of toddlers on Sunday morning for a moment.

  23. I just saw Maneskin last weekend at Rock for People festival in the Czech Republic. They got huge really fast and definitely the a band for gen z, so they could easily replace MGK. Half of the setlist were covers, their hit song was played 3 times (normal, Iggy Pop version and as encore)... the kids loved it (actually not sure, if they know the original songs except Harry Styles or billie eilish covers)... nothing special about the band. Good thing is, that many kids came to the festival to see them and left with better bands to listen.

  27. I don't remember BBCC going big on it wow. In my opinion its unfair to say they are booked because of tiktok though - they are big upcoming acts that have blown up - it doesn't really matter where they blow up. not saying you are saying this but tiktok gets treated with such a stigma but its acted as a platform for so much alternative music to grow from, stuff that just wouldnt come through normally as its so un-chart. Maneskin is a massive booking right now, just a few weeks back they had 3 songs in the top 20.

  33. Lot of truth there I think. I think she irked a lot of people right out the gate with the marketing for this album and she’s been playing catch up ever since. If you were put off immediately by the infamous “newsletter”, this record isn’t good enough to come back from that. She’s definitely on a totally different wavelength to a lot of people right now, and I can see why that’s irritating to many. Im very much not a Californian wellness hippy type but I dunno, it’s still grabbed me. Not going to sit here and say it’s anywhere close to Melodrama, but im enjoying it, and appreciating that she’s going for very different things with each album rather than spamming what’s worked in the past.

  34. Yeah those first couple of sets in the Garden each day are generally my favourite part of the festival.. Doesn't look much to go at this time Edit: actually Anna B Savage first up on Sunday will probably hit the spot

  35. I really loved Lynks. He's such a brilliant performer. Wet Leg were good, Yard Act and PVA too. Working Men's Club were decent once they got over their technical problems. Really wanted to see Tirzah but not in a tent full of people chatting. Ended up bailing out after half an hour. Overhead some workers talking about how someone had been rifling through tents in the area they were camping. I know it's happened here before but in the staff area it's very strange.

  36. Not sure how that compares to the original plan, but those dates are more encouraging than I would have guessed. Looking good for more open travel next year, Just this current blip to get through...

  39. main stages won't clash. liam gallagher will be on after biffy, not sure how long after but i assume a good 10?15 minutes at least as they'll want to wait for everyone to move from stage to stage and buy drinks and what not

  44. I was so stoked to see them again and that 2018 show was one of the dreariest messes I've ever seen. Say what you want about a band like The Killers just playing to the crowd... sometimes you GOTTA play to the crowd.

  45. Also, big shout at to, er, me going to Supergrass and The Cribs in Crystal Palace Park on Friday (actually, should be a fair few others going considering the number of reduced price ticket links I've DM out!).

  46. They view vaccination as the game changer. Until they've reached at least 70% of the population being vaccinated, their approach is going to focus on cases, and that will mean sporadic lockdowns where outbreaks occur for the next few months. It sounds like your family here have some strong views on the subject, but I think it's a stretch to say anyone is "drunk on power" or to describe the situation as tyrannical. The fact is that it's proven to be a successful way of keeping cases extremely low. It can come at great cost to personal freedom and the economy, and we should not be in this situation, but that's not the fault of State premiers who make decisions about lockdowns - it's the incompetence of the federal government's vaccination roll out. We have 3-4 months of this to go, then I think we'll all need to brace ourselves and let Covid do its thing. That will be an enormous adjustment for people here and in NZ - we're in a completely difference headspace to the UK and most other countries who've had high case numbers and huge amounts of death. But the vaccines work, and we will need to hold on to that.
