  1. There are portaloos in each field in addition to the main block. To be honest there are still queues in the morning so you will still need your regular reserve of patience.

    Taylor Swift

    Taylor signed the deal with Big machine when she was a kid. Many years later Swift wanted to move to Universal and take the rights to her music with her (as she was aware Scott was going to sell Big machine). Big Machine only agreed to sell her the rights if she kept pumping albums out for them (or whoever they were going to be sold to). Taylor didn't want to do this. Taylor signed with Universal and then Scott not Taylor cashed in with Braun who had delighted in humiliating Taylor over the whole Kanye farrago. They then gloated about it. Taylor did not sell her music to Braun, Borchetta did. Braun and Borchetta will continue to make shedloads of money from Taylor's music, regardless of whether Taylor re-records her tunes or not. This is petty and vindictive behaviour from Braun and Borchetta. Those are Taylor's songs and she should be able to play them at the AMA's which will be celebrating her output as artist of the decade. Rant over.

    Absolutely this. The Chilis used to be good but are just personality free, characterless bilge now. They would be a dull booking. Still the last thing I want is three pyramid must sees so it wouldn’t affect my festival.

    No way the Chillis will be anything near as fun as the Foos 2017 set. That was a fantastic night. The Chilis have no personality. It would be a pointless booking for me.

    BST makes a lot of sense. I don't think we have to worry about it being declared exclusive, the last one Taylor did sold out straight away.

    At the risk of sounding like a grumpy old git (who am I kidding I am one) RHCP lost it for me from after BSSM. The run of Uplift Mofo Party Plan, Mothers Milk and the mighty Blood Sugar Sex Magic was exceptional. Back in those days they were a thrilling live band, was lucky enough to see them at the Electric Ballroom and two absolute blinders at the Astoria. Just fantastic. Then they got famous, and shit. I saw them at Brixton after Under the Bridge went viral and they were incredibly dull, I was stunned. They have done very little since to convince they have got any more interesting.

    I'm sorry, this cannot stand. The Bends at 9? I understand that this forum is really a post Kid-A Radiohead board but putting this classic at number nine has shocked me to the core.
  9. Would love it if they did Thursday night Avalon. Wonder if they'd do Truth or would that be too small?
  10. You are in now....you'll never leave...... Congratulations on your win, it really is the best festival on the planet and this is the best forum to discuss it.

    I'd be stunned if AC/DC did it. They are very much their own band. At their last download appearance they took their own stage and didn't allow their name on the festival merch. I'd love it if they played (especially if Brian is back) they are one of my all time fave live bands but I don't see it. Still good to have them in the mix though

    Given that Taylor is here quite a lot of the time I'd find it surprising that the UK does not get at least 1 Loverfest. I have however covered my bases and gone for the Belgian date just in case.
