  4. It would be the weakest set of headliners I've ever witnessed... I understand that Pop and Hip Hop heads might be big-BIG, but uh, the rock names would be underwhelming. Plus, and I speak as a non-UK attendant, neither BMTH or Liam Gallagher have any appetibility as headliner - not even in a co-head scenario. For what I can recall, they never headed any non-british major fest, also.

  6. I don't think so 😕 Their EU Tour starts the 4th of June, I don't think they'll spent enough time in Europe to be there. But I disagree with @EV123, they are a Stadium size band, look where they perform in their EU Tour... If you think that more people would be interested in Nick Cave than the Guns.., you are wrong.

  8. Down to the top five, so I'm going to have to look at the graphical breakdown soon, aren't I? Sigh. Request: please keep this going until at least the first week of November when I have a week off. Thanks in advance.

  11. Nah. You can say a lot of things about the Arctic Monkeys but saying they’ve just churned out music in the same style for their entire career isn’t one.

  12. Prices aside, the worst ticketing dick move for me is the ‘extra date added due to demand’ trick when: a) it’s obvious the extra date was already locked in before the original date went on sale, and; b) the extra date is a weekend when the original is a weekday. I’m pretty certain this is just to crank up demand/ensure a sellout on what would be the least favourable date. Billie Eilish’s agents just pulled this, adding a Friday date in Auckland after the original Thursday. However... the ultimate dick move was Tool 2020. Adding an extra Saturday night gig after the Friday night original, announced and on sale FORTY FUCKIN MINUTES after the first date sold out.

  13. What a fantastic day. Crowd were absolutely amazing throughout. Finished in 4.38 which I’ll take for a first marathon, despite being 20 mins slower than I was aiming for. Was going really well until mile 17 then back started spasming uncontrollably so was in a bit of bother until mile 22, then managed to kick on. Main thing was finishing though. A friend and I managed to raise over 5k for Cancer Research, so happy with that too.

  14. Managed 3:10. Early miles too fast, blew up at mile 20, last few miles were a world of pain. Rookie mistake. Crowds were great.

  15. Yes, a friend of mine is a massive fan of Nick Cave (to the point of him now largely forgoing almost all other music) and has tried to get me on board on numerous occasions over the past couple of decades. It all just sounds like a dirge to me. I think it's probably his voice that I just find so affected. Love The National though!

  17. Yeah I've seen Benitez linked with a return, but while I would like the narrative, I would be very surprised if it happened.

  18. The fans liked Benitez so much that any replacement was going to struggle to win people over. But I get the feeling somebody who managed Sunderland in a pretty mediocre manner a decade or so ago and who, while manager there, said he didn't want to manage Newcastle was going to find it much harder to win people over. This is to say nothing of the fact that less than a year earlier, he'd been fired for alienating everyone at Aston Villa, whose replacement manager duly got them promoted and indeed finished above Newcastle last season. Think we ended up with him due to being rejected by many preferred names, bit like how Spurs got Nuno. I felt he got very lucky last season - at the March international break we looked screwed then Willock suddenly turned into a goalscorer extraordinaire and bailed him out. Genuinely think this would've been Ashley's choice for a replacement.

  20. And of course we all know that any break wether it's in season or end of season, the clubs would try and do some tour of somewhere for dough.

  21. It doesn’t surprise me that we are always battling this misconception. Quite a lot of the festival scene in the 90s and even early 00s was pretty adamantly anti-pop. As the industry has matured I think people have realised that it was a pretty narrow way of looking at things. I think the festival is better than ever now. It’s not just the same touring bands that pop up every year.

  25. Intrigued by what they've got up their sleeves next. Nick especially always seems like a well liked/respected guy by members of other bands, with him and/or his kit popping up at various shows. Hopefully plenty more to come, even if no more LK.

  31. Ah nice! Been there before - saw (I think) Blawan, Clouds and Nina K. Sneakys is great too, an institution. I reckon Artwork could hammer it a bit harder in that environment and maybe drop the odd cheeky bit of his early back cat (Grain, ‘Red’, Croydon wob) if he’s in the mood. But he’s pitching himself as a DJ Harvey successor at the moment, natural-born entertainer, think he’ll play solidly down the middle rather than going off piste.

  32. I was also looking forward to them, only seen them once at that Glastonbury gig in '99. I just want to be in a crowd that bounces like that again. I'd like to see: Jungle on the Pyramid late afternoon in the sun. Let's eat Grandma. M83, who I foolishly skipped last time round. Chvrches, whose star seems to have fallen but I still love the new album. Royal Blood is also a good shout, they were great fun in 2017.

  37. I saw him hanging out with other band members at Green Man. Personally they were one of my favourite bands this summer. Their Green Man set was the most fun I had at a festival. During their EOTR set he announced that it was their last gig for a while which was strange as they still had some scheduled in and then only confirmed they had cancelled them last week. My other half spoke to one of the band after the show and he said he was going to be working with other people soon.

  41. It was mean of me, and for that I regret saying it, however I still do believe she'll fade away when the next pop princess is in town. Ellie Goulding was doing pretty well, but haven't since heard from her. Lily Allen was also on quite a high, same story.

  42. Dua Lipa? Nobody's going to care about her in 5 years time. Other than that, it would be a disastrous booking to have her as a headliner for Rock Werchter. Boutique no problem, but not Rock Werchter.

  44. One weekend or both? In the latter case. 440€ for tickets, between 100€ and 300€ for flights (if you are from Europe, and depending on flight times). Accomodation really has no limit upwards. We've always taken Airbnbs and have scored a relatively cheap one for just 280€ per person for 12 nights but I'd plan with at least 400€, especially if you are a smaller group. Food depends. If you have an appartment where you can cook, you can keep it cheap, eating at the festival is not cheap but also not too expensive. But if you wanna go for an all-in holiday there is so many amazing restaurants you could spend a fortune on food alone. Personally, I put around 1200€ aside for this. For one week, I had years where I managed with 450, but as everything got more expensive, I'd say you are looking at 650 upwards, since flights and certain side costs don't scale down with the time spent.

  46. That’s done on purpose to make you spend more than you would do rationality. When you have a count down clock you fee like if you don’t commit then the pain of losing out will be bigger than the pain of paying. It’s the same trick that fraudsters use.
