eFestivals is fund-raising

eFestivals has been here 20 years supporting festivals and festival goers. Without your support it will not continue as it has been.
Advertising used to pay the bills but advertising revenues are much less than they were.

Festivals: if you'd like us to continue to promote your event to our 650,000 monthly readers you'll need to give a helping hand.
Festival-Goers: if every visitor in just one day donated just £2, that would provide funding for a whole year.

You can donate or sign up for 'gold' (ad-free) membership, or you can contact the editor.

    Yep, last night was fantastic. 'Hands' wasn't necessarily a stand out track on the album for me but live it was so powerful. 'I told you everything' and without spoiling it for those who don't want to know - the cover, both nearly had me in tears. And I HAVE SEEN SERPENTS LIVE. Lovely stuff.

    I really like them. I have all of their albums. I have seen them live. Hi 👋🙂

    Just given the Little Simz record a whirl - absolutely love it. Probably my favourite after Remind Me Tomorrow so far.
  4. High Contrast disco and soul set sounds like it will be awesome.

    Shit, that does sound very sexy.
  6. Best way to do Boomtown. Even if you do have a plan of sorts, it's impossible to not get distracted. Trying to stick with our group last year was like herding cats.
  7. Really like that though. If slaves and Gogol bordello are on different days, it will be full aerobics costume for one day and full purple suit for the over.
  8. On first glance I thought it said 'extremely moreish' under Leftover Crack
  9. Liquid Soul and Infected Mushroom are both fantastic. I will now be exploring the whole of the Tribe of Frog lineup as, well, it's the best stage at Boomtown.
  10. I wasn't aware of that. The efests rumour page has them SR for unknown day, unknown stage so dunno. Subbing Chems on the Other stage Saturday would fit pretty well.
  11. I'd be at Sharon Van Etten 😁
  12. I reckon something like this then: Friday: Pyramid: Stormzy /Gambino Other: Tame Impala WH: Jon Hopkins JP: Interpol Park: Jarvis Cocker Saturday: Pyramid: The Killers / Liam Gallagher Other: Chemical Brothers WH: Wu-Tang Clan JP: Doves Park: Sharon Van Etten Sunday: Pyramid: The Cure / Vampire Weekend Other: The Streets WH: Janelle Monae JP: Orbital Park: King Gizz
  13. Very very happy with that. Massive line up.

    2019 Headliners

    Wolf Alice are headlining Truck festival end of July so they are about this summer. But yeah, it could be a one off.
  15. Fair enough. Yeah clashing is definitely going to be unavoidable though for The Strokes day unless the likes of Parquet Courts and Jarvis Cocker play early in the day, which I can't see happening. There's worse reasons for a backlash than 'There's too many good bands to fit in' though.
  16. Really? Can't say I noticed any issues myself.
  17. Here is last year's Clashfinder to give you an idea: https://clashfinder.com/s/ape2018/?
  18. From memory, last year, the 2nd stage headliner finished as the main headliner began. So I left just before the end of Beck to catch the beginning of Bjork for example. You may miss a bit if they are on different stages but you'd definitely be able to catch most of each if its the same as last year.
  19. Nice, seen them a couple of times over the last few years and both times been brilliant. Have you heard Useless Trinkets? An album filled up with rarities, alternate versions and the odd cover (I could never take the place of your man). Fantastic.
  20. Ah really? If you haven't already, I'd recommend giving 'Blinking Lights and Other Revelations' a whirl. Beautiful album.
