  1. Yeah good point. As long as they have a really strong indie/guitar band up against the electronic act I think it works really well
  2. Are we thinking there'll be a dance headline every year now?
  3. Seeing people lose their minds on social media about glasto tickets makes me very happy my friends go to a fantastic festival don't require you to have your shit together in early October
  4. And obviously there's a petition https://www.ipetitions.com/petition/stop-the-ban-on-event-shelters-at-green-man?utm_source=whatsapp&utm_medium=social&utm_campaign=&quote_id=quote5&title_id=title2&recruiter=15401802&loc=view-petition
  5. A gazebo is a lifesaver if, like our group, you bring a load of two/three man tents and need somewhere to sit in the rain. On the other hand, people do bring multiple even shelters and really spread out. Maybe they've redone their risk assessment and they're banning them because of that? Run away gazebos can be dangerous and maybe there was an incident at the festival? I say this because GM is not pushed for camping space. There was still space for relatively large tents near us all Friday, and this was pretty close to one of the entrances. I feel this is going to be ignored by quite a lot of people though. Unless they have stewards going round dismantling them I don't see people paying much attention.
  6. Agree with everything. Plus the murder capital.
  7. I meant the relative age of the bands to be honest. Most of the bands suggested so far are from the 90s and early 00s
  8. Lots of older bands being suggested. The past two years one of the headliners has been a bit of a curve ball so I suspect something similar. Maybe another dance headliner? Jon Hopkins would have fitted the bill but the tour he’s just announced sounds very experimental. Possibly bonobo but Caribou hasn’t released anything in four years and wasn’t anywhere near headline status back then All I know is that I’ll definitely be there and can’t wait to discover some fantastic new music when the lineup gets announced.
  9. Don't think many people would have predicted Hard Skin being the major talking point from the festival
  10. Please tell me you went to hospital... No festival is worth getting arthritis in the future
  11. In fairness her general point does stand in that there is a lack of decent dance music, although personally this doesn't bother me too much
  12. Had a fantastic year, favourite festival ever in terms of lineup and I have a feeling it may be my favourite festival full stop. Green Man is the best place in the entire world for me and wish I could do it all again. Highlights were pigs x7, black country new road, sve and car seat headrest. Stella Donnelly was probably my favourite set of the weekend. People around me where in tears after her little speech before boys will be boys. Only negatives were the slightly annoying food queues, deciding to see fjm over idles and them running out of the ipa on Sunday night. Also a bit of a tradition is to get the dosa on Sunday night and watch the final acts sitting on the hill so it was a shame they sold out so early.
  13. Got in and set up camp in classic Green Man weather-sunny and raining at the same time. The ground is still very good but can see orange car park being a major issue on Monday morning.
  14. The weather forecast is so changeable that it's already changed massively for today. Meant to be pissing it down all day according to the forecast yesterday, but now it looks like it's drying up around lunch time. Which is good for me as I wasn't looking forward to setting up my tent in the rain when I get on site this afternoon
