  1. I can see the risk of it being dismissed as a gimmick, but I don't think it's a terrible idea. I think managed correctly it could be a powerful statement: "look, how easy it is to have a whole day of amazing female acts", particularly if the other days also had a good balance too. The idea is to challenge the status quo. Deliberately giving the stage to female acts is acknowledging that men have more advantages, and other male footsteps to follow in, but women deserve that chance too. It's why i support positive discrimination in other fields too; yes it's artificial to begin with but the idea is not tokenism, but actually opening the door and wedging it open for more women to follow.
  2. The main danger of only finding secret sets by accident is Blossoms.

    Lana Del Rey Confirmed?

    Great. Hope she plays that song about a man treating her badly but actually she likes it.
  4. yeah now we just need them to be announced at gigs on the 26th, 27th, and the 28th, and then we'll be safe.
  5. If you get it once and then recover, are you then immune to it? Could you then walk around Wuhan like a boss?
  6. I saw NGHFB at the Downs Festival in Bristol. My main memory of that night was a woman near me tapping me on the shoulder and saying "I hope you don't mind me saying, but you look like you are really enjoying this, you seem so completely mesmorised by it", and that would be a weird enough thing to say to someone, but I'd actually spent the last 3 or 4 minutes thinking to myself "fucking hell, Little By Little is so boring".
  7. Not massively. I've been impressed with previous Truck festivals but how much do you have to hate your punters to put The Kooks, Catfish and the Bottlemen, and Blossoms at the top of your bill? Most of the undercard are at tonnes of other festivals too. Truck is very easy to avoid this year.

    Brexit at Glasto?

    yeah the horrible brexit supporter I work with is probably w*nking into his commemorative tea towel right now

    I like the National but there's no way the festival are making that mistake again.
  10. I'm quite keen for Catfish and the Bottlemen to be announced on the bill. If nothing else it reduces the chances of accidentally seeing them in some kind of horrific secret set misunderstanding.

    all the Glastonbury's what?
  12. One of my worst festival experiences was in 2002. I'd just watched the Charlatans subheadline on the pyramid stage, and parted company with some friends as I was going to go watch something else. Unfortunately I had rather too much jazz cigarette and ended up curled up on the floor by the fence halfway up the pyramid field, and had to stay perfectly still for about 2 hours because I knew if I moved I'd be sick everywhere. To make matters worse, that was the night Stereophonics headlined
