  1. Shame that The Twilight Sad have never been booked, they'd be great in William's Green. My Bloody Valentine, Sufjan Stevens, Tears For Fears and Slowdive would all be great bookings too, though I've just seen that someone started a petition for the latter to play this year's festival
  2. I think Tame Impala would be ideal as an Edinburgh Summer Sessions headliner but nothing bigger. If they tour up here I would expect them to play The Hydro but I couldn't see them selling out. Admittedly they're a bigger deal now but the biggest venue they've played here is the Barrowlands, they're not going from that to headlining TRNSMT unless their next album is ridiculously successful. Anyway, here's a quick prediction for next year: FRI: Paolo Nutini, Dua Lipa, Blossoms, Sam Fender, Of Monsters & Men SAT: Liam Gallagher, Wolf Alice, Bombay Bicycle Club, Nothing But Thieves, Octavian SUN: Lewis Capaldi, Two Door Cinema Club, Rag 'N' Bone Man, Twin Atlantic, Tom Walker
  3. I predicted her as I wanted a female sub and she seems the obvious shout for that. As much as she’s touring a fair bit this summer I figured she’d be doing a few shows next year to promote the new album, presuming it is eventually released. I like that lineup @dentalplan, Bjork as an Other headliner is a good shout, I’d considered her but I didn’t think she’d have new stuff out so soon.
  4. Yeah I assume this is because it was a Saturday and there was more people there for a day out but there was definitely a noticeable increase in people chatting in crowds, something I hadn’t really found at all on the previous days. Strangely the crowds for Marina, Idles and Thom Yorke were great and very enthusiastic where I was but Chemical Brothers and Bon Iver were full of people chatting, the latter in particular. You can kind of get away from it with the Chemical Brothers as they’re much louder but when it’s just yer man and a guitar it gets a bit more distracting.
  5. I thought Bon Iver were brilliant, though I seemed to be in the minority as most people around me were chatting throughout it. Really enjoyed what I saw of Idles and Marina either side of it too. It does seem ridiculously busy at points tonight. The area between NOS stage and the Clubbing stage seems to be packed no matter what time it is.
  6. Tame Impala & Foals The Black Keys Red Hot Chili Peppers
  7. I thought Vampire Weekend were brilliant, everything from New Dorp New York onwards was great fun. I never thought I’d say this but I actually preferred them to The Cure. It did seem pretty quiet tonight though. I stood to the left of the sound desk for both The Cure and Vampire Weekend and it was noticeably quieter for the latter, had loads of room around me for the whole set. That was the case across most of the site though, even the seats outside the Sagres tent seemed much less busy than the previous night.
  8. Every 30-45 minutes I think during the night. We left Hot Chip slightly early to make one at 4am, will probably do the same for Cut Copy tonight.

    It’ll be Gorrila > Ritz > Warehouse > Arena in a year and a half at this rate.
  10. Mogwai were my highlight, that was probably the loudest set I’ve ever heard at a festival. The Cure, Hot Chip and Weezer were all great and I really enjoyed what I saw of Jorja Smith and Sharon Van Etten. Overall that was a brilliant evening of music. That was my first time seeing all of those other than Mogwai so great to see them all on top form.
  11. Other than the lack of water taps except the ones in the toilet it’s pretty great. Weezer were good fun and what I saw of Sharon Van Etten was great too. Ornatos Violeta seem to have a pretty big crowd at the moment.
  12. I’m happier having TRNSMT for a more pop audience and the older acts playing Summer Sessions/Kelvingrove. The lineup for The Cure’s day at Summer Sessions is outstanding, I’d much prefer that than having Gerry Cinnamon and The Kooks added in to make the day more widely appealing. It’s a similar situation for having two nights of The National at Kelvingrove rather than watching them play an hour to a fairly bored crowd waiting for Van McCann and the lads.
  13. Had a look into this earlier and I think you can get a train to Alges from Cais do Sodre and then a bus from there to the shopping centre. A taxi would probably be quicker but think I’m going to try the train/bus to work out what I’m doing for the train later on.
  14. My new favourite thing about the festival’s strange methods of communication is that we knew H.E.R. had cancelled her European tour at least a couple of months ago but they still have a big picture of her on the train doors here I’m really looking forward to the festival now. Had a great time exploring the city over the last couple of days but can’t wait for things to properly start tonight.
  15. Hope you feel better soon, you’ve spent long enough getting excited/frustrated by the festival that you deserve to enjoy it! I thought Lisbon was roasting today nevermind Thursday so I’ve for no idea how I’ll cope with the heat then. Is Porto generally a bit cooler? I’m heading there on Sunday after the festival and something slightly cooler than Lisbon would be ideal.
