    Oh Sees are a deffo for me because I find VW to be really, REALLY dull

    Predictions for 2018

    Chances of Jarvis rocking up to join Feist for Century? I hope so. He's been part of the festival on the past. Also Bas Jan playing and Serafina Steer is part of his band at the moment. Fingers crossed for a secret set!

    Follow the Line of Best Fit Twitter feed is usually a good start. Think they're usually responsible for arranging all the secret sets around the site

    Park runners .....

    See this does sound stupidly tempting, I just really don't want to have to bother with using the showers afterwards and carting running gear to the festival with me. I'm in two minds!

    Haha! I'm stinky enough at a festival, without getting all sweaty on a run. As much as I will miss a good Saturday wakener, I think I'll give it a miss.

    British Summer Time 2018

    Elton John playing farewell shows next year, wouldn't be surprised if he played BST as one of them.

    Predictions for 2018

    The cinema was completely revamped last year, and I never tried to watch anything, so can only speak from experience of previous set-ups. It has historically been difficult to get into after dark, but with the introduction of more going on at night now, (karaoke, silent disco, secret sets, comedy, etc.) I don't know whether that is still the case. The problem I always used to have with it was it wasn't tiered, so if the film had subtitles and you were at the back, good luck reading them! That said, the only time I experienced this was when I went to watch The Raid one night, and it hardly mattered what the dialogue was to be honest!

    Queens Of The Stone Age @ Finsbury Park

    Yeah, I'll probably get there for Deap Valley, pop over to the second stage for Hinds and then camp out at the main stage for the rest of the day. Looks like it could be a relatively early finish then. Can't see QOTSA playing for more than 2 hours, but you never know.

    Oh God! It looks far, FAR worse when laid out like that. Hard decisions will have to be made!

    Predictions for 2018

    Doesn't look too bad. Really hoping that they put all the Big Top headliners on late again, after the Woods and Garden headliners as that will free up some pretty nasty looking clashes. Biggest concerns are Destroyer up against Hookworms and being stuck inside the Big Top for a lot of Sunday when I want to see a fair amount of stuff elsewhere. That AK/DK, Posies, Amen Dunes and Japanese Breakfast run is rather tasty!

    Nice! Some good additions there. Particularly pleased with The Posies, Screaming Females, Bas Jan and Kiran Leonard.

    Which artists on which stages?

    I can't see Hookworms on one of the outdoor stages, personally. I gather that their current set up has a lot of visuals/projections, so I'd imagine they'd be in the Big Top again. Think I agree with your Garden Stage headliners. Other than that, I'm clueless.
