  1. Thanks for that ? Back to Hackney then.
  2. Have I missed an announcement about the annual Christmas show? Bit of a tradition, though I can't say that 2018 was a classic.
  3. I've no idea what makes a headliner and often don't bother, rather see new stuff. Would love to see Gia Margaret (had to pull out this year), Hand Habits, Jane Weaver, Big Thief, Soccer Mommy and Julia Jacklin next year.
  4. Garden Stage chair gang don't bother me anymore either. Not much does since retiring, and they're easy to avoid by moving in from the front. Having been to Latitude in 2017 (under sufferance, never again), I can confirm that EOTR is still a reverential crowd compared to the Waitrose picnic in Suffolk that is Latitude. Each to their own of course, some people just don't like music.
  5. Yes, I know there's loads of feedback in the prediction threads already; I'm recovering from the annual man flu that at least only started on Monday. My eighth EOTR since 2011, fourth in a campervan, and just me and Mrs KYTV this year. Still the first thing on the calendar, early birds nabbed for 2020. Familiarity does mean it's a bit less magical than that first one, though. Highs The weather. Missed the Saturday downpour in the cinema while Mrs KYTV got soaked. As always, the breadth of the music. From Pigs x 7 to Anna St Louis and from Jessica Pratt to Viagra Bo
  6. Where's my breakfast kedgeree ?
  7. Kate Tempest a definite win for me. Latest record fantastic. Beirut were highlight of my first, life changing EOTR, but that was their highpoint. Can honestly say I'm rarely bothered with "headliners", as only go for new musical discoveries, the gardens and food.
  8. As Rick says, loads of stuff I've never heard of so bound to be great. Rarely stay up for the headliners anyway, far too cold (Fenland wimp). Kathryn Joseph, Jessica Pratt, Mitski, Beirut def. highlights.
  9. Our 17 year old son, who visited more food stalls than he saw bands, confirmed the chicken roll as the best bargain of the weekend.
  10. Beat me to it. 80% of the stuff I've listened to over recent EOTRs has been female/female-led, and that runs the spectrum from acoustic Julia Jacklin to power pop like SnailMail to weird stuff like Anna Meredith. Never crossed my mind to consider gender. And I'd have Newsom back over most of recent headliners which left me cols (though that may have been the cold).
  11. Was at the Moth last night, not a fan of reviving the '90s but Prolapse were summat else (but support FiveHead were funnier).
  12. Spot on, mate. Some of the sets this year were magical due to reverent silence such as Caroline, Julien Baker and Haley on the Sunday morning. You could be very unlucky, even toward the front, but could soon avoid the chat.
  13. Anyone know why Big Thief sounded so shambolic (from about 10 rows back). "Capacity" a wonderful record but "Mary" not a happy experience. Felt for her. Sound great overall, particularly in the Tipi (though Snail Mail have deafened me:.
  14. Agree. Would be different if Beavertown was the only option, but there were great £4.50 pints of local beer in the Tipi, and a fiver for a half of Sapling (7.1%) is Cambridge prices, let alone Hackney. Good range of specials they dragged down the M3, too. Best not followed with hot cider, mind ?
  15. Our 7th since 2011, and I still cry a little tear as I walk out for the last time. Familiarity does dull the magic a little, and I find the more artists I explore upfront the less fun I gave discovering for the first time. First time we'd stayed Sunday night too, (though up at 6am); bit staggered how many tweets still pinging around at 4.30 ?. Lovely folk, great musical variety, unbeatable food and beer, as good as ever we thought. HIGHLIGHTS Julien Baker, "Televangelist" of course. First time seen her and basically wept. Lucy Dacus biggest surprise, wonderful.
