  1. Not that, because it's not Download and it's not 2007
  2. I think Liam Gallagher's appeal is so ubiquitous that FR believe that he will still be a draw for both events I also believe that the two events are marketed towards more separate demographics than previously; RnL is very focused on the 16 - 21 market, whereas Latitude appears to be veering slightly more towards Radio 2 than Radio 6 (Keane subbing your festival will do that, even if it is under The Chemical Brothers) LG is perfect for both camps; fun for all the family, unless you're his girlfriend, in which case look out for the grapple hand
  3. I didn't camp myself but from the look of it there was plenty of space
  4. Car park isn't too far from the campsite and you can bring a camping stove up to 500g Had an incredible time this year; it's well worth a go
  5. Went for the day and I had a lovely time; wonderful crowd, lots of families, great food and generally just a really relaxed atmosphere
  6. Been keeping my eye on this festival for a little while; is there any advice or particular pointers you'd give to someone attending for the first time? Any food stalls you'd recommend? Got my fingers crossed for Manics and Primals; although I'm not sure if that's asking for too much
  7. Rudimental played two nights at Ally Pally, Bloc Party performing Silent Alarm sold out Ally Pally in about a femtosecond, New Order are still a big draw and a more exciting booking than someone like Elbow or Stereophonics My local council are putting on a Rudimental DJ SET in Rochester Castle Gardens and are charging £50 for the privilege; Victorious is still the best value event in the country by far I think the headliners of the calibre of Biffy Clyro and Kasabian will come very soon, but that will probably be followed by a £10 price hike
  8. Everything I've heard about the festival has been really positive, nice vibe, lovely food Really excited for it
  9. And here I was thinking they'd be getting someone like Suede Reckon this may pop up on theatre filling websites in the coming months
  10. I don't think Biffy are going to be headlining, this year at least
  11. Given that I've heard that Biffy are playing a festival in the UK this year that they have yet to perform at and following the IOW announcement this morning, I would expect them to be turning up at Kendal Calling
  12. https://www.sis.gov.uk/apply-now.html
  13. Pretty decent; the sort of bands I've paid to see in the past but probably wouldn't anymore, probably owing to the fact that I've already seen them 10+ times
  14. Heard some murmurs about possible headliners and it looks like the festival is only going to be getting bigger; if what I've been told turns out to be true they could really be stepping on the toes of RnL next year
  15. All the acts were superb and we were fairly near the front so the sound was perfectly fine The venue definitely felt like it was oversold though. As people have mentioned in this thread already, All Points East was busy but you never felt that the infrastructure was being stretched It took a rather uncomfortable half an hour to get out of Finsbury Park whereas for both APE dates I attended (including the sold out Nick Cave show) it probably took about 10 minutes to leave
  16. Ah, my mistake. Whenabouts did LN begin to get involved then?
  17. Well tempted to say it's Ed Sheeran, Bastille and Elbow to give you all aneurysms but I can proudly announce it is none of the above
  18. I only know the headliners; I would say it's a mixed, unevenly weighted bag
  19. I've not seen them mentioned in recent memory, but they're as Latitude of a headliner as you can get The other two headliners have been predicted, surprisingly the one that hasn't is probably the most predictable
  20. You're all gonna be kicking yourselves for not thinking of them when you see who one of the headliners are
  21. It's very easy to get a coach or train from London to Portsmouth You can get a National Express from Victoria Coach Station to The Hard Interchange in Portsmouth which is by the seafront and about a 20 minute walk from the festival for about £20 return if you book in advance Trains run from both Waterloo and London Victoria to Portsmouth, Portsmouth Harbour is the closest station to the festival; again, fairly cheap if you book in advance, also have a look on the Megabus website as they sell discounted advance train tickets which can be as cheap as a quid You'll probably have to spend the night in Portsmouth but trains and coaches should start up again from about 5am or so, I'm sure there'll be plenty to do in the town that night anyway
  22. I'm pretty sure Live Nation have been involved in V Festival since its inception To be honest I don't see what all the complaining is about when you have 3, if not 4 bona fide stadium headliners Who goes to IOW for the undercard? No one likes Starsailor that much
  23. Isn't Irish Latitude Electric Picnic anyway
