  1. 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. 

  4. Green man Instagram advertised a charity auction for two tickets. 

    I doubt they would do this if they weren't at least planning on the festival going ahead. 

    I'm not clutching at straws, you are

    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

  9. That is an excellent line up, gutted about angel olsen as I gambled and got tickets to the murder capital in Manchester which is a day after angel. I live outside Manchester and can't justify two train tickets in two days 


  10. Echo what others have said, they're both fantastic festivals. I prefer Green Man as that's the festival my friends go to. I honestly thought the eotr line up in 2018 was as good as it would ever get, but then green man came along in 2019.        Sitting on the terraces overlooking the mountain stage is my happy place.

    But the woods area of eotr is incredible. I also feel eotr does late night much better.

    We're very lucky to have two truly excellent festivals in the UK.

    Rumour has it the EOTR headliners are Pixies, Big Thief and Bright Eyes. If thats true then I guess you lot at Green Man have Angel Olsen.


    Edit - obvious disclaimer that this might not be true.

    Very interesting, pixies would be the only one out of the three that I would be interested in.
