    I'm really happy with the lineup. Much as I like the 80s/90s white-guys-with-guitars rock bands, I go to Primavera to get out of my comfort zone. Primavera's lineup is fresh, exciting and challenging. Mad Cool's lineup is comfortable and safe.

    Met Hot Chip backstage at their DJ set last night and Joe Godard said they’re playing Glastonbury 🤭

    Listen, I like Hot Chip, they're great live and undoubtedly have a solid back catalogue of bangers, but c'mon. We're talking about Macca here. Taking one of his shows from the last month this is just an example of *some* the sort of stuff we're likely to get; A Hard Day's Night Can't Buy Me Love Got To Get You Into My Life I've Got A Feeling Nineteen Hundred and Eighty-Five Maybe I'm Amazed I've Just Seen A Face Blackbird Lady Madonna Eleanor Rigby Something Band On The Run Back In The USSR Let It Be Live And Let Die Hey Jude Birthday Sgt Peppers Helter Skelter Golden Slumbers/Carry That Weight/The End

    Don't get me started on this. Got the email earlier, was all excited. nearly ended in a divorce this afternoon when I found out that my wife had been using my account on our home Sonos and apparently my favourite artist is Ed fucknuts Sheeran.

    Adrian Mole and the lads are at the G more or less every year. It'd be like missing the Stones to go and see Lekkido Lord of the Lobsters.

    Booking the same bands every other year is what Reading does though.

    Gazza, why do you even bother commenting on this thread when it's quite clear you have no intention of going to Rock Werchter and have nothing positive to contribute? The post you initially replied to was about Bon Iver, Tame Impala, Smashing Pumpkins, Thom Yorke and The National. All of these acts are perfectly reasonable bookings for Rock Werchter, so what's the point in quoting it and saying "It's not 6music festival"? Without wanting to sound harsh, your music taste is effectively that of a teenager in the mid-00s. I'm sorry that major festivals in 2018/19 don't cater to that, but I'm not sure what you feel you achieve by going around threads of festivals you have no intention of going to, and seemingly have never been to in the past, and telling everyone that the lineup/their suggestions are rubbish. Once again, the post you just replied to was about a bunch of acts that are entirely suitable for Rock Werchter. Have you seen the 2018 lineup? It includes Nick Cave and the Bad Seeds, David Byrne, Nine Inch Nails, Fever Ray, etc. Just as "Primavera" as the acts in the post you just replied to (which also included several non-"Primavera" acts like Parkway Drive and Wolfmother). Honestly I'm not really sure what you get out of posting here anymore. You don't seem to listen to any new music or like the lineups of any festivals these days (except odd days that have a few 2000s rock acts playing) and spend most of your time on here going around saying either a lineup is rubbish, people's suggestions are rubbish, or arguing with people. Not that I'm trying to tell you how to spend your time, I just don't really understand it.

    I poke about on these forums because they're full of people who are into music in a way I'm just not. I'm the kind of philistine who thinks Sziget looks good because I like the Foos and a bit of Ed Sheeran in the sunshine. I think this is a really bold move by Primavera but that's what makes it fresh and interesting to a crowd that likes music. I have heard of a grand total of 12 people on that poster, 5 of which are because I read these forums and only 1 (Interpol) is a headliner. But I'm not the target audience. I hope this gamble pays off because it's great to see a festival doing something different even if I'm not the one who will properly appreciate it.

    That's natural salesmanship right there

    Or it just isn't to your taste? By and large, the headliners this year are as critically acclaimed as usual, so that clearly isn't a consensus view. And I'm not saying that with bias, as I'm not going to this festival and I personally prefer the likes of The Cure to what has been booked this year, but a lot of people I know think the lineup is amazing and it's not hard to see that it will appeal to a lot of people. Even in the Glastonbury section of this forum there were loads of people fawning over this lineup and asking if we can just have it as the Glastonbury lineup.

    Sterling has shown some sense in calling out the media instead of targeting the individual. Look at the climate that enables racism instead of just point and shout racist.

    Sons of Kemet XL is immense. It's a four drummer setup, and hugely powerful and intense. The Necks are always good to watch, they'll be in the Auditori. Saw Beak> last week, always fun. Also saw Suede recently, show as brilliant as always. Same with Roisin Murphy, her current band is probably the best she's had.

    You don't need to ask them who's headliner, they already replied me in March.

    https://www.bbc.com/news/uk-scotland-46466929 I noticed that Frightened Rabbit are doing their first gig, since the sad demise of Scott Hutchison. They mention doing some things next year, it would be nice to see them at the farm. I would definitely be there to show support for the remaining members. Late afternoon on the Park or the Acoustic would be perfect.
