    Yes, she is bringing the full band.

    Not a great fan but The Orielles would seem a very EOTR type booking. Hoping for Lucy Dacus to make a return.

    She’s done two of the last three years too, so I agree unlikely this time.

    Or, the return of The Curry Shed?!

    The Horrors?

    Not any more they won’t be - announced today that they have split up.

    Looks like it is St Vincent on Friday, VW on Saturday, Feist on Sunday based on Feist/St Vincent websites.

    Predictions for 2018

    About 20 I would think. Usually around 85 in total.

    This one is all about the undercard. Absolutely superb.

    Predictions for 2018

    ...but then who would have thought the Gene Clark No Other band thing would be a garden headliner? I think Mercury Rev is a really good shout, and would be pleased with that. I could see them as Woods headliner. And yes please to Flatworms! Idles in the Big Top would be superb too.

    Predictions for 2018

    Jesus, Warpaint as a headliner?! No thanks. I’m pretty confident Lost Horizons will be on the bill somewhere - maybe Garden headliner or sub on the Woods? Bella Union link is so strong, just think it has to happen. Undercard - hoping for Gengahr, also think The Big Moon and Shopping will return.

    If it is Yo La Tengo (looks likely), that’s a whole load of ‘Meh’ right there. Just got to add Ezra and St Vincent for the laziest headliner bookings ever...

    Predictions for 2018

    As much as I like St Vincent, would be a bit of a lazy booking seeing as she has headlined solo quite recently, and also with David Byrne. I wonder if we might see Mogwai back and, given the links, if Ezra might be promoted to Woods headliner? Not that I think that 'should' happen... I've basically given up hope of SVE ever playing after wishing for it to happen every year.

    Widowspeak played a few years ago too.

    Top 5 Performances 2017

    Top 5: 1. Perfume Genius - stunning performance. Well worth waiting around in the rain for. Will headline in the future I think. 2. Nadine Shah - has upped her game considerably since her last performance two years ago. Really enjoyed the Loud & Quiet interview too. A very engaging character who is not afraid to speak out on important issues. Really funny as well. 3. WH Lung - Rightly getting a lot of love on here. Hard to believe they are so new on the scene. Superb. 4. J.Bernardt - Really got the tipi going early on Saturday. Loads of energy, good songs. One to watch. 5. Nadia Reid - Has one of the most beautiful voices I've ever heard, and has the songs to match. A real talent. 5.5 (i.e. more than just honourable mention) - TootArd in the tipi for the first extra slot on Saturday night. Was one of those magical End of the Road moments. Not many would have known who they were at the start. We all knew by the end. Really enjoyable. Honourable mentions: JC Satan, All We Are, Aldous Harding (the sound bleed was awful though), Ultimate Painting, Pond (drug dickheads all around us was more than a little annoying), Car Seat Headrest (wanted more vocals), John Smith (Father John Smithy!!), Julia Jacklin, RBCF. Let downs: Goat Girl (had high hopes, just a bit dull), Lowtide (really boring, lost the audience).
