  3. Even more good reasons to avoid every one of those cities on each of those dates
  4. Difficult to say. However, there's definitely a direct correlation between my getting older, my reduced intake in recent years and me noticing anti-social behaviour, rudeness, attitude, etc. Maybe it's always been the same and I was too wonky to care/notice? I will say that the vibe is definitely a combination of factors. Venue, promoter, musical genre all contribute to the attitude of the crowd. The larger, more publicized events can also attract a less "unified" audience but these shows became less about being there to dance and more about just being there, a long time ago. The way forward is definitely to go for the more intimate, underground nights with a more knowledgeable, in-tune crowd, there to dance. Which is what I think you do, isn't it Matt? Other countries have got this nailed. I complain/joke about the door policy of clubs in certain places but one thing's for sure, it protects the vibe.

  6. 39% battery at 11:30am...what is this madness?
  7. I'd imagine there must be, especially with the potential for people to drop out due to you-know-what. I'll do some digging

  9. Do they have a big following in Orkney, then?
  10. Does anyone know if WHP has an official resale channel? Looking for one spare for the Prydz night on Friday 1 October

  14. Can't remember if I posted this before but Philip fucking Glass. As Adele put one in for the ages on the Pyramid.
  15. Oooh, I remember you mentioning this. I might be up for this one...
  16. What better way to book-end the last 19 months! It'll be like the pandemic never existed! Have a great one!
  17. Have a great weekend, electronauts! My Saturday will be slightly more low-brow, enjoying Balearic-inspired house classics spun by legends Todd Terry and Roger Sanchez at an old converted lido, Tropicana in Weston-super-Mare with Cafe Mambo

  19. I've just seen the Sunday clashfinder. Faced with the return ferry with thousands of others and negating the need to take a day's holiday on the Monday, my tactic would be to leave on the Sunday morning. There's still three days of fun to be had, Thursday to Saturday, even if the music is less than inspiring.
  20. In fairness though, I get you. Back in January/February, if this was all that was on offer for the summer I would probably have taken it. Not for the lineup, naturally. But simply being back in a field in a festival setting for a few days regardless of who was playing was a great feeling back in July. I didn't realise just how much I missed that aspect of it, until I got back after the forced two-year absence.
  21. After getting a bus to the tube station, the tube to Paddington, the train to Lymington, the ferry to Newport and a taxi to the festival. To see a Scouting for Girls tribute band. And Scouting for Girls.
  22. The last thing I'd be doing when at a festival is be on a festival website! 😆
