    Oh yes Park headliner like Four Tet in 2014 or Park sunset like Floating Points in 2016 would be lovely. Think they're not big enough for West Holts pre-headliner (Bonobo, Moderate, Caribou, etc.)?

    Anyone else soundtracking their summer to this album?

    That is really, really helpful - thank you! Taking that into account, thinking we will stay in De Pijp. In the city but somewhat of a middle ground as we will be on the side of the city closer to the festival. Might even rent some bikes and do as the Dutch do to get to and from.

    To those who have done Dekmantel before, or are doing it this year... any thoughts on staying as close as possible to the festival (airport hotels I suppose) vs. staying closer to the center of the city? Obviously the convenience of being close to the festival is appealing, but maybe not as appealing as being closer to the rest of what Amsterdam has to offer. Leaning towards the latter at this point.

    Have decided to try to go for Dekmantel. Wish I had decided that back when tickets went on sale but oh well. Tickets seem to be in quite high demand. Anyone have any advice on where to look/how to get them?

    NYC Downlow

    My apologies Ok ok you've convinced it should stay as is In all seriousness I wonder if there will be a look at making it bigger over the fallow year given its ever-increasing popularity

    NYC Downlow

    Yes! Have thought the same thing about the Acoustic, and while they're at it why not have the back of the stage open so that you get a view of the site. (and yes would be interesting... something tells me we might be surprised by the amount of crossover, although probably not)

    NYC Downlow

    I have something very controversial that I would like to say about the NYC Downlow ... I think that the stage should be switched so that it is on the opposite side (where the entrance is now), that way there is a slope downwards towards the stage instead of upwards I hope this does not upset anyone.

    The Avalanches

    This was a real highlight for us. Wasn't expecting so much of the show to be live, the vocals etc, was sort of expecting a dj'd mashup sort of a thing. Had a great time

    Finally back from a whirlwind trip First off, thanks @Mezhyp1 for the Sub Club tip. Saw Steffi and Virginia and I have to say I loved that place. You Glaswegians are lucky to have such an on point club in your hometown. As for Glastonbury, started off Thursday seeing Afriquoi at the Gas Tower which was a really enjoyable brief set. Then went over to Call Super and actually left because were not feeling it. Volume was really low and it just didn't really capture us. Rest of the evening was spent at Beat Hotel and the Blues. That Young Marco accapella intro was interesting to say the least... Shed was a real highlight of Friday night. Really happy I finally got to see him and as others have been saying Genosys is the place to be. Daniel Avery was probably the highlight of Saturday's electronic explorations, also having the Wood right near Beat Hotel is a great combination for when you are ready for a breather. Moderat was probably the highlight of Sunday. Afterwards, even the moustache queue for MAW was expectedly crawling. Wound up in the Temple and while the music left something to be desired I really though the increase in size did not take away at all from the atmosphere. Thought the sound system was great as well. Felix Dickinson closing out Genosys and then that amazing sunrise was a really special way to end the festival

    Glastonbury Toe

    Out of 5 times, this was the first I did not get Glastonbury toe, and I think I know why. I wore new boots this year and I went a whole size up from the old ones I had worn in the past. This allows the toes some wiggle room, and therefore, no Glasto toe.
