  1. _JohnConnell

    2020 headliners

    Why is this out of the equation?
  2. I'd be suprised if it was the Pet Shop Boys as they're playing the Arena in June, but who knows?
  3. Circa Waves on BBC Introducing at 7
  4. What makes you think this? Just had a neb at her tour dates and she'd be in the US either side of R1 Big Weekend. Fingers crossed tho.
  5. Was never much of a fan of Stereophonics until they headlined Kendal the other year. They were absolutely class. There's bound to be one or two decent support acts on the day; considering there hasn't really been much in the way of a music festival in the area for a few years, I'm happy with what's been announced for this so far.
  6. Realistically, I'd say there won't be any notable additions to the current line ups. Looking at the posters I've also just noticed that while it says 'many more tba' on Saturdays billing it doesn't say the same on the Foals poster. We've got our three day tickets regardless. In an ideal world I would have The Chemical Brothers there for a bank holiday Sunday piss-up but I'm not too fussed either way.
  7. Couldn't see George Ezra - he plays the MetroRadio Arena in March and I think playing Newcastle two months after that would be too soon. I honestly still think it'll be a female act, just don't know who. Would love it to be Florence... or someone like Wolf Alice? Female fronted at least.
  8. It's big enough to hold two or MAX three stages without too much sound getting mixed up between stages. I could only see them having problems if they have as many food vendors as they did last year - there were way too many, and it was a big of a waste of space that could have been otherwise used to even out the crowd. I'm sure Exhibition Park actually usually has Newcastle Pride concerts on in the summer, or at least I think it did until a few years ago, so it's likely to be more suitable. Last year the music started at about 5pm and ran until 10.30/11. They did quite well to pack in so much in that space of time but I almost wonder whether they'll start earlier this year rather than having several stages.
  9. Went for the Catfish and the Bottlemen day last year. It was decent value for money at £40 a ticket considering the acts that were there but the organisation was poor. Only time there weren't huge queues to get a beer was when Catfish started and by then you couldn't get anywhere near the stage really. Spillers Wharf, the site last year, is basically a big car park but as you got closer to the stage the crowd was funnelled in a bit so was very crowded. I didn't go to the 30STM day but friends who did said the attendance was pretty shocking. I'm surprised it's on again this year but will be getting 3-day tickets tomorrow as Exhibition Park has a load more space, and if they're adding a third day I'm hoping they'll feel obliged to even out the headliners and book Florence.
  10. 4! Can’t see many of the other larger acts announced now although hoping for PH & JA. Devastated about Jamiroquai being a Y-Not exclusive.
  11. Do you know something? Or is this just a Temptation?
  12. LG + Chemical Brothers Depeche Mode Foos
  13. Jess Glynne Pet Shop Boys The Libertines Belle & Sebastian The Vaccines Kaiser Chiefs The Wombats Paul Heaton & Jacqui Abbott George Ezra YUNGBLUD The Ks The Sherlocks Emeli Sande Two Door Cinema Club Ocean Colour Scene Wolf Alice The Magic Gang Miles Kane Gerry Cinnamon Jamiroquai (please)
