    Predictions for 2018

    Cheers, I'll have a listen.

    Field space

    I like to create some space around me at the front of the Garden Stage ;-)

    There are a couple of free shower blocks in the main camping area. Quite long queues in the morning. Best strategy seems to be to go either very early or wait until the daytime. Since that clashes with music and beer, I have never had a shower in 10 years of going to EOTR. A packet of wet wipes seems to work.

    You get ten acts and ten acts only

    There's so much good music at this year's festival. Thankfully I won't be restricted to 10 bands only, but now that I've checked a lot of them online I really need to revise my list.

    Two years ago they had 3 bands on the main Woods Stage and another 3 or 4 in the Tipi Tent. I can't remember whether they repeated this last year.

    Which artists on which stages?

    It's an odd one. The Garden stage is certainly more special more of the time, but the absolutely top performances and "awesome" stage atmosphere I've appreciated has been at the Woods stage - Flaming Lips, Father John Misty, Patti Smith, Savages, Alabama Shakes. Regarding the Oh Sees, I saw them on the Garden stage last time, so I just want to see them somewhere else, bigger crowd, etc.

    Which artists on which stages?

    Personally, I'd love to see Damien Jurado headlining the Garden Stage, with full band, lights and effects. It looks like his lower billing will mean a solo acoustic slot. I'll still be happy to see him.

    Which artists on which stages?

    I like it. You've gone for a bit of noisy and raucous on the Garden stage - controversial!
  10. So now we know the Woods headliners and most of the other bands, where would you like to see the other bands placed? What would be a good running order for you? (based on what you also gauge about artist seniority from the website). My thoughts: Woods headliners we know are: St. Vincent, Feist, Vampire Weekend Woods headline support acts: Ezra Furman, Oh Sees, Hookworms Garden headline: Jeff Tweedy, John Cale, Gruff Rhys Garden headline support: Big Thief, Jonathan Wilson, Damien Jurado Big Top headline: IDLES, Fat White Family, Titus Andronicus My knowledge and attention span runs out there.

    Excellent. I saw them at the Crofters Rights in Bristol with about 10 other people, having seen her solo at EOTR. They're a good band and I hope they stick them on the Garden Stage this time.

    It also says it's a debut for Lucy Dacus. Nope, I saw her in the Tipi 2016. Maybe she's bringing the band this time instead of solo.

    Predictions for 2018

    I thought that Ocean Rain was the greatest album ever made. At least Ian McCulloch thinks so!

    Predictions for 2018

    Both would be great. The new Lucy Dacus album not quite as stunning as the first, but still good, with some great highlights. Will be seeing her at The Louisiana in Bristol in April. At the Crofters Rights last year she had about 10 in the audience, which I found shocking given her talent, but I was glad to be so close to the band!

    Oh Sees have announced that they're playing O2 Academy Bristol on Sunday 2nd Sept. Good news that they'll be playing one of the earlier nights at EOTR.
