  1. Friend of mine, glasto virgin, didn’t know any flaming lips, burst into tears of joy at that moment and didn’t stop sobbing for 3 songs. Magical.
  2. It might have been part of the deal, they were a big success last time (I saw chic). I agree their not as strong as those three we’ve mentioned, but there’s not been much serious chance (only dreams) the they’ve been on the cards. So as a generally poplar, crowd unifying headliner I’m happy above most of the other options (as summarised by dental, I think, above). Ususl rules about other stages apply.

  4. Yep. Have to say though, when I saw them before in their prime I thought they’d be great but it sounded flat and soulless. One of the most disappointing gigs I’ve been to, cos I love the songs...happy to give them another go.
  5. Thought it would be the Killers after 2017, and it wil unite our group to be fair. Snobbism aside I think it’s pretty decent booking. Universally popular except on here (and I have a lot of love for here). As a group we’d see them above most of those mentioned except probably Madonna and FM.
  6. Just catching up on the Christmas messages on Twitter. Is that a new thing? Anyway, are sleaford Mod nailed on?
  7. I reckon they’d make more of the “exclusive” tag if they were exclusive. What with tickets to sell. So im cionfident we should get one or two from APE. Chems as well.

    Hot Chip

    I love them, my mates only know Over And Over, even though we saw them supporting Mylo a generation ago. For me it has to be a headline length show in the dark. So probably JP. Reckon they’ll do Bluedot as well, that seems a good fit.

    Hot Chip

    Too big for JP? Would be a great atmosphere in that tent.
  10. On the white male theme, I don’t think we can dismiss the Killers. They were many peoples most likely after the secret set. And surely bigger than banjos.
  11. Had sine memory of a friend singing playing Mr Brightside down the phone to us as we were at home. Was sure she was at the Macca one. But clearly not.
  12. Just checked, I’m wrong.
  13. Without checking, didnt the Killers headline the same year as Macca last time? it might not make a difference, but wouldn’t seem very progressive.to have 2/3 of the same headliners from fifteen odd years ago.
  14. It must be time for a new Hot Chip album. I know they’ve all been busy with other projects, but LCD should be done for a couple of years at least.
  15. Agreed. But what’s popularity when you’ve got the golden tickets!1
  16. Okay, cool. Looks like we may get end up filling the group, but it’s goid to know. Might have to prioritise mrs flash though, she’s the lynchpin. Cheers for the advice both.
  17. Ah, thought that might be the case. I presume if the sale fails you get kicked back out into the queue?
  18. Me and mrs flash are going in with 8 others. Current plan is a group of 6 and a group of 4. But what if me and mrs flash are in both groups, making 2 groups of 6 and we double our chances. Nice move, I know, but could it balls things up? If one group gets through first, could it mess it up for the second group? Or would that just be a problem if both groups get through at the same time?
  19. What about Editors? Got enough big songs from the first three albums, and I think the recent one was received pretty well.
  20. There was an email last week... We will not allow large bags into All Points East but you will be permitted to take small bags and handbags in with you. We class small bags as no larger than 35cm x 40cm x 19cm or standard handbags.
  21. Ignore me. https://www.getwestlondon.co.uk/whats-on/music-nightlife-news/points-east-festival-announce-three-14599261
  22. Do you know where and what looks good? A brief Google didn't bring anything up.
  23. Thanks for the reply. Really tempted for the fallow year, and the other big U.K. festivals don’t appeal any more. It’s NOS or one of the smaller ones over here.
  24. Just signed up to the mailing list for this, previous line ups look top drawer. Whats the accommodation situation? Do you book into hotels/b&bs? And what about booze? Well priced? Can you drink in the arenas?

    Flaming lips

    If go straight for Yoshimi. For me, a more accessible but quirky album. I've only listened. To that and the soft bulletin though. Is it time for someone to post the flow chart?
