  1. I've never seen them check names/ID. They just scan the QR code on each ticket.
  2. And dropped from the mailout as well. He does have an autobiography out very soon and obviously has close links with the festival, so it wouldn't surprise me if he is on the Literary stage. Maybe they jumped the gun with announcing him?
  3. Bonnie "Prince" Billy, he seems to be the obvious candidate. There are a few that are simply out of reach, Tom Waits immediately springs to mind, I'd throw The National and Nick Cave into that pot too. Pavement are a good shout, but they seem to be going where the money is.
  4. I can't say too much because we camped in our usual spot at the top of the hill near the Tipi tent, but it certainly felt more congested there than previous years, I would put this down to more camping area allocated to boutique. Just out of interest, where are you seeing this year's map? I'm surprised that they've published it already.
  5. Not sure Black Flag are suited to this festival
  6. First listen to this Deathcrash lot this morning. Not bad, but it's not running music is it?
  7. TBF, it was especially busy because The Horrors pulled out at the very last minute, but it wouldn't surprise me if that was the catalyst. Also the set of my favourite bit of middle-class heckling ever as the crowd urged Robin to remove the tea-bag from his cuppa.
  8. All of these suggestions are horrible to me as I want to see all three!
  9. Just use the ready made one:
  10. Did not know this. Also a big Ought fan, so pleased about that
  11. Ha! And no sign of Wet Leg after all the chat in here.
  12. Yeah, I don't have the same enthusiasm for Fleet Foxes, Bright Eyes or Magnetic Fields that I'm sure many others do, but as per usual, that undercard is stacked. Lots to love there. Great line-up.
  13. Or maybe that's a spaceman and we're finally getting Babylon Zoo
  14. As the Ada Lea/Sun June show I was meant to be going to at the Lexington was cancelled last, I'll take both of them please
  15. Don't know if anyone's looked at the "General Information" page on the website, but I was interested to see that the Festival Village opens at 1:30pm this year. I know it was earlier last year, but that seems even earlier this time around. Wondering if that means we'll have more acts on the Thursday this year. As for OSeesc, I love them but having played in 2016 and 2018 (headlining the Garden Stage), it kind of feels too soon to be putting them on again. But you never know...
  16. I wouldn't say "novelty". I just don't think there's anything exceptional about them. Just a decent indie rock band. Like I said earlier, I'd probably go and see them. I hope they change my mind
  17. So did he, tbf. Turned up about half an hour late and played a very shortened set. Would love him back. I'm a big, big fan.
  18. I've still yet to buy into the Wet Leg hype. I've yet to hear what is making people lose their shit over them. Not bad by any shot, and there's a good chance I'd go and see them if they played, but really not getting the hype.
  19. If there's one I've learned over all these years is to never predict the EOTR headliners. I think with the pandemic cancellations we can make a rough estimate, but I fully expect a curveball from the organisers
  20. Mitski has gone TikTok viral (my teenage daughters are now listening to her). So whilst these shows have sold incredibly quickly, I think you're looking at a different crowd to your standard EOTR crowd. She would still play pretty high up and I would still love her there, but headlining Woods seems unlikely
  21. Yes, Battles are a band I've wanted to see at EOTR for years. Hopefully this is a good sign
  22. The year that Wilco headlined was a November announcement, albeit only about 6 or 7 acts, and this was pre-Woods Stage, so quite a while ago.
