    Parquet Courts

    Yep, the odd single aside I’ve never really been a fan but this one is tremendous, both musically and lyrically. One of the best albums I’ve heard this decade, let alone year.

    Roger Waters

    It was wonderful. I'll never listen to 'Pigs' in the same way again!

    West Holts 2019

    This guy should be in the mix for an early slot on West Holts (or maybe the Park). File next to Khruangbin:

    2019 Possibilities (Non-Headliner)

    Great fun was had with the Avalanches. No way is Gallagher headlining.

    All Points East Festival 2018

    I second this. Both great fun live.

    I know of someone who got pulled aside and searched down to his boxers going into Field Day a couple of years ago. On this topic, this is a good read: http://www.urban75.org/blog/festival-security-drug-searches-and-your-safety-an-insiders-guide-2018-update/ Includes this: "If you are searched, it must be compliant and based around surface area only – they cannot go under clothing to search. They are allowed to ask you to remove a coat/jacket/jumper, but that’s it." ... which seems inconsistent with actual experiences, including the one I've just mentioned.

    Hookworms, although they clash with the second half of Superorganism. You can easily check out the whole lineup on this here Spotify playlist, based on each act's recent setlists.

    Might I direct you to a fine website called 'eFestivals': https://www.efestivals.co.uk/festivals/allpointseast/2018/lineup.shtml

    Better than that: "Two Tower Hamlets brewers (Redchurch and Truman’s) have also granted free pouring rights across the 10-day event." https://standoutmagazine.co.uk/five-minutes-with-aeg-presents-jenny-hamada-event-manager-at-in-the-neighbourhood/

    2018 New Music

    The man's a legend. Back catalogue only recently added to Spotify. I particularly recommend Manipulator, Twins, and the self-titled from last year.

    Updated Spotify playlist for the Friday, adding the Jagerhaus and Firestone stage acts and Australian singer-songwriter Cloves, who's been added to the poster, and tweaking a couple of the acts based on recent setlists. Tracks for each act are those they've been playing most often live. I'd really like to see both Phoenix and YYYs, but seems pretty inevitable they're going to clash now.

    Yes. But as @SophieBee says, the original email says 3 days before so no need to panic just yet.

    Boardmaster 2018 - just for teens?

    I’ve friends in their mid-30s who go every year and have a ball. I think you’d be fine. (And if not, there’s always the bar).

    I've made a playlist of all the live acts (and some of the DJs) playing the Friday: As with the Glasto ones song selections are based on recent setlists (as far as poss), ie these are the songs each act plays most live. Enjoy!

    Lost In Vagueness

    New(ish) Grauniad article on the film: https://www.theguardian.com/music/2018/apr/28/leaving-lost-in-vagueness-glastonbury-pioneers-hedonism-documentary Some great comments, my favourite, from 'Rodneybooze': "I played there many times in the 80s, and there was always a lurking commentary about it becoming "too corporate". to an extent it's always been part of the trip; it's not cool enough just to be there, you have to be part of a really cool sib-set who 'really know what's going on', and remember it when it was just medieval brigands shoving mushrooms up dragons arses. For free."
