    I actually feel this is quite noncommittal, line up/tickets in the next couple of months is very vague. 

    My god i hope it happens but I still feel there's a less than 50% chance of it going ahead, especially as it's in Wales who have been consistently more conservative than England in their route out of lockdown.  

  2. Temperature checks have been shown to be ineffective in picking up the disease. Unless they can have rapid onsite testing cheaply on site/a vaccine I think it will be very difficult for festivals to go ahead

    Sure, but asking someone to hold off getting rid of their ticket until January so it helps the festival isn’t really reasonable.

    It's reasonable if you can afford it. But for the majority of people fronting a festival that you can't go to 200 quid is a big ask

    More than 85% of people kept their ticket for Roskilde. Should be similar for Green Man.

    On the other hand, there's no way their budget can be the same for next year after losses incurred. But maybe bands will take lower fees?

    I guess there's no certainty but I imagine pretty much every band in the land will be looking to tour next year.

    Hoping that this is one of the safer festivals? As it's toward the end of the season...

    Fingers crossed. Imagine a fair few foreign bands will pull out but if that means no Mac demarco I'm happy with that

    Unfortunately most of my friends are already doing other fests and don't want to do another. I've tried looking around on Facebook to see if there are any solo groups going but have had no luck.


    I'd really like to go but it's a struggle :(

    Sign up to volunteer as a steward. I've done it three years in a row and met people each time. I still meet up with them every summer

    Looks awful. That pub by the bridge - The Bridge End I think - was badly flooded not that long ago as well. 

    Important for GM attendees to visit the town during the festival and spend a bit of money I think. Such a nice town. 



    It's a yearly tradition for us to go get food from the bridge end at Saturday lunch time. The walk along the river really helps clear the hangover and is one of the highlights of my year.

    So I could never get into Thundercat that much on record but I’ve been watching a lot of live videos recently and my god, the man is incredible!

    The drummer and the keyboardist are insane as well - definitely a must see for me now! 

    I saw thundercat at field day a couple of years ago and it was very forgettable
