  1. I know I'm only an old man who has an arthritic hip, grey hair and an increasingly loose grip on reality but seeing FNM below 21 Pilots and imagine dragons makes me feel sad. Not saying that those two shouldn't be headliners they are huge bands. However if they were to put FNM in the Barn with a decent set length, rather than 40 mins in the early evening on main that would cheer me up immensely. Full disclosure - I'm a huge FNM fan. Thankfully going to see them at their own gig a few weeks before Werchter.
  2. I'd be surprised if we get anything today. Ken is usually a bit more chatty when there is incoming news... Please be more chatty Ken. 😉
  3. Come on Rock Werchter start giving us some names for God's sake. I want the Friday excitement back.
  4. Wouldn't surprise me to see FNM in the Barn. Pixies and NIN both did. Mike Patton famously doesn't like big festivals and prefers intimate indoor gigs. I'm an enormous FNM fan (they were the first band I ever saw live, back in 1990) so if they were to play in the tent I'd be over the moon.
  5. Just bought my tickets. First time back since 2017. Can't wait.
  6. As one who questioned the refund policy I felt I should write and say well done to Ticketmaster on the refund. I applied for the refund yesterday morning and received notification of my full refund payment from PayPal a couple of hours later. No bother whatsoever. Really slick process.
  7. Yes I appreciate what you're saying Ken. The reality is there are no winners in this situation even multi nationals need money to keep employees and they help support a network of others. Let's just hope there is a festival season next year. We could all do with it.
  8. The thing is we are not talking about a little independent venue or festival here, who I would be willing to help out if I could. We're talking about LiveNation/Ticketmaster an enormous multi national. We're also not talking about a £50 ticket. We are talking of large sums of money (especially when you add food/drinks vouchers) which maybe someone bought last year before COVID and have consequently been made redundant. Those people probably have more need of the money in the short term.
  9. I'm aware a festival line up might change but this is hardly comparable to a headliner dropping out at the last minute. Once I accept the voucher for 2022 then I have given up any option of claiming a refund of my money and since there is no way of knowing the line up in 2022 that's a gamble. RW is a festival that can change genres each year unlike say Download which stays rock oriented at all times. Therefore there is a good chance that I may not like the line up in 2022. RW has had some appalling line ups for my taste but would still be considered great for a lot of people. The grand majority of people will re-book so for those of us who don't want to, (SOAD we're the big draw for me), there should be that option of a refund. Plus I'm already married so I don't think my wife would be too happy if I did it again😉
  10. Have you seen the email regarding tickets. Its outrageous the proof needed to get a refund. I bought a ticket for a festival that is not happening, they have replaced it with a different festival and yet I'm not allowed to claim a refund unless I am getting married or dead. I can't stand RHCP or Gorlliaz. So I don't want to go. Full stop. I love RW but this has left such bad taste in my mouth. I really don't think I would go again in the future because of this.
  11. Yeah God forbid Live Nation have to fork out a bit of cash. Poor sods who have lost their jobs because of this virus now have a useless ticket instead of the cash they desperately need in their pocket.
  12. Quite surprised how low down Faith No More are and always surprised at how popular TOP are. It's a strange world.
  13. Plus it means I don't have to return to Graspop. Thank God.
  14. Are they seriously going to clash the Pixies and Pearl Jam again. FFS.
