  1. So we can expect Black Midi back then (and hopefully they clash with someone I want to see).
  2. Personally I'd like a double S, so let's be having you, Sturgill Simpson
  3. I've heard it said that for those of us who go to both EOTR and GM that your preference will be for whichever of the 2 you first went to (and thus fell in love with first). I went to EOTR first. I'm with all the points above. I also like the way pretty much all the food outlets are in one place at EOTR with the tables in the middle, meaning I can quickly check queue lengths for my possible options and then sitting down I enjoy the random conversations with people I join at a table or that join me; this seems to happen far more for me at EOTR. That EOTR is significantly smaller helps too. I'm sure I could easily argue the case the other way, particularly having done GM Settlers for the first time this year, but first love wins.
  4. The return of The Murder Capital has to happen, and I'm staggered that you forgot to mention Vlure.
  5. Headline slots on Woods and Garden Stage have always clashed, so its a bit more than speculation.
  6. https://www.facebook.com/groups/125270931623/announcements End of the Road - Happy Campers is a solo campers group, this page tells you where you could find everyone, and you would be very welcome to join. The FB group is also used by a ton of other folk as an alternative / supplement to this forum.
  7. Yes, but I'd make sure you have it downloaded as there's no guarantees on getting a signal anywhere on site. Ditto the Covid vax or LFT proof.
  8. Sunday is currently the clash nightmare for me, so hopefully some timings are out : WH Lung / Fenne Lily / Black Country New Road / Crack Cloud Arab Strap / Yard Act / Dry Cleaning / Big Joanie
  9. Not sure if they've already been mentioned, and trying to avoid those who have been : CMAT, PVA, Yard Act. And I'm expecting big things of TBC! 😁
  10. Utterly brilliant set. Joyous and life-affirming fun - so just what we all need right now.
  11. There's a small festival in Spain near the border with Portugal that takes place on an island in the Vigo estuary, and I believe you go out by boat to the island each day not knowing who is going to be playing. Its called Festival Sinsal.
  12. Others on here can correct me if I'm wrong, and this assumes no change in layout from before: Orange Car Park and coach drop-off use different entrances to the festival and, although the distance between them isn't far, you would need to get your wrist-band and enter the festival site to go out the other side into the Orange Car Park. There isn't a sensible way of going from the coach drop-off to Orange Car Park without going through the wristband exchange.
  13. Another word beginning with C also comes to mind.....
  14. The last 2 weekends I've been to Latitude and Farmfest. OK so you had to show a vaccination certificate or negative LFT to enter, but after that the only very noticeable difference to normal was some limit on people entering tents with enclosed sides, so they weren't rammed. Yes, some acts had to cancel and were replaced, and a number of folk who would like to have been attending decided not to or couldn't following a ping or positive test. But after the last 18 months or so, it pretty much seemed like a return to normality. I had wondered how people would behave, and personally wasn't going anywhere near a Chemical Brothers sized mosh-pit of people either side of their 20th birthday (i.e. most likely statistically to be carrying Covid), but I saw almost no one wearing masks, and crowds not significantly more distanced than at a pre-pandemic fest. I was maybe a little surprised, but happy to go with the flow. So maybe we don't get exactly the EOTR we know and love, but hopefully Simon and the team deliver some pretty close to it.
  15. I'm not sure Green Man is going to want Liam Gallagher though!
