    Usher Hall, Edinburgh...THANK YOU, Thom and Jonny. 

    They are playing Edinburgh the weekend I'm at Primavera.

    They are playing Primavera the weekend I'm back in Edinburgh. They look out for Glastonbury too. Miserable morning!

    5.40 ‘secret’ set at bbc introducing today

    According to the Lanyard this is Bleach Lab’s slot.

    “Surprise Performance” at midnight each night on the BBC Introducing stage according to the Lanyard too

  3. I’ve not been in a few years (2014) but have they extended the Other Stage field at all? 

    It was a bit of a squeeze during busy acts back then so if they have even bigger acts on, it could be a disaster. Especially if it’s a heavier band.

    I could point out that neither of them are relying on purely his name to sell the tix - because NYE is NYE, and summer sessions are designed to tap-in to the Edinburgh Festival crowd.

    I've no idea who'd buy a R'nB-Man ticket, but I don't know who'd buy a Polonium ticket either - and she's one of the most popular acts in the country. :wacko:

    That’s all true. These gigs are screaming out as tourist traps. None of the acts playing are exactly rare finds in the summer. 

  5. It’s taken 39 pages but finally a thread about a Scottish music festival has descended into sectarian chat. Good work folks!

    Back to the last headliner... I’m running out of ideas since Muse aren’t playing anywhere apparently.

    Since they aren’t playing Reading, do we think Royal Blood could feesibly headline with a decent support?

    So if you have to do a good guess, who do you think will headline Edinburgh and the other dates?

    For Glasgow, I still think Calvin Harris and Foo Fighters. Probably Kings of Leon too.

    Edinburgh is harder because of the smaller capacity and the fact that Kelvingrove has so many bands booked that won’t play both.

    I’m just praying they’ve snapped up Arcade Fire since they are in Europe at the start of August anyway.

    You've won first prize in our "marketing isn't the same as real life" competition. :D



    I wish it was purely the hype machine but I know real people who claim that the Foo Fighters are the best live band they’ve seen. Makes me worry about them now that I finally subjected myself to almost 3 hours of a Dave Grohl vanity show. 

  8. So in the Edinburgh evening news this morning, some good news (hopefully) for us Edinburgh lot!

    Up to eight open-air shows will be staged in the shadow of Edinburgh Castle under a new series of “Summer Sessions” gigs in August. The organisers of the T in the Park and TRNSMT festivals have confirmed they will be staging shows in the arena for the first time in over a decade. British pop diva Paloma Faith has already been confirmed as the first act for the line-up for the shows at the Ross Bandstand”
