  1. Its the dumbest booking Copping has ever done IMO. Theres absolutely no crossover in fanbase whatsoever. AlterBridge would have been better subbing KISS and Deftones under Maiden, I can only pressume DLUK have had no say in it and had to just make do with them playing where they can. Cus if that was done by design, my god.
  2. Kele said at Victorious this year that this is the last Bloc Party show for a very long time, said something like this is the last Bloc Party performance of the year, for many years in fact. So don't expect them to turn up anytime soon, sadly, cus they were bloody brilliant. But sounds like they're on indefinite hiatus now.
  3. I'd say it was more the POP factor, I said before the event All Saints wouldn't get people in, how wrong was I, they had an absolutely HUGE crowd, fair play though, they were brilliant. In comparison Idlewild had one of the smallest crowds I've ever seen at Victorious, so something im sure they will be thinking about. BTW with Capaldi being so rammed, I was actually at OCS who had a really big crowd still then I went over for the end of Capaldi to meet the mrs and I saw the crowd he had, I actually have photos of it from up the top [and idlewild] I might post them up.

    WWE

    Wow this thread is dead isn't it. Happy that Anthem got the deal done to buy AXS tv in US and Impact will be moving on there, hopefully they push on. The rumours are going around they're buying ROH as well, id be amazed if WWE let that video library pass them by. But I can see Anthem taking control of the company, they've been in freefall since AEW came into effect all their fanbase jumped over to that. Amazes me however that whilst this news has hit the internet, theres so many people saying TNA can't pay their wrestlers let alone buy ROH which is the bigger company. Lets get a couple things straight, firstly, ROH has never, ever, been a bigger company than Impact, they just had the NJPW connection and the Elite guys working there, they've never had a bigger worldwide scope etc. Secondly Impact was sold years ago, theres been no financial troubles since then. Yes they're working on a smaller budget in terms of no live weekly show etc but they can afford a great roster, they wouldn't have been able to pull Elgin from NJPW, pay RVD's salary, Morrison who has only left because he wants time off wrestling, their female roster is absolutely stacked. As much I i enjoy Impact, I hope they do go live, theres nothing like a live wrestling show where anything can happen, anyone could turn up. WWE puts on a live show every show and somehow makes it look as taped as possible. Which defeats the purpose. Anyhow, the wrestling landscape has never been brighter [well, in the US] shame this chat is so dead.
  5. Agree I didn't see any dickheads at all tbh. I did see lots more security and police though, they were everywhere. Not planning on returning next year, nothing to do with the festival, just done 5 years in row and the hotel prices are getting a bit ridiculous. We had one booked that cancelled us right after the festival as obviously we had it at a cheaper price and they want to resell at a higher price. I actually had a look and some places are charging £500 a night, just insane greed. So will probably look to do something closer to home. Bet after they've reformed now Supergrass will be there next year, they've already said they'll be doing festivals after the tour early next year.
  6. Little review here, was very much if ain't broke don't fix it, but there was little changes on site that made things better like placing of ice cream van on castle stage finally moved to behind sound mixer was perfect. Only thing I can moan about was they moved the toilets on seaside stage which were usually the quietest on site, so was queuing more for the toilets (well the Mrs was). Saturday was defo the busier of the weekend bar queues were LONG all over the site. I wish they sold cloudy apple strongbow at all bars instead of just strongbow stage and champagne bar. Don't understand why this is still the case this year. Also strongbow original 5.50, dark fruits 5.80, cloudy apple 6. Just rips the piss.
  7. I've pinned the link to clashfinder on my twitter if anyone needs it over the weekend
  8. Go for it with Clashfinder, not doing anymore with it, added Sundays people lounge and Comedy Tent both days which is the same both days. But the other stages missing not sure anyone is too fussed about. Sorry if anyone is performing on them! Theres still that big gap on Friday on the World Music stage that I thought they had done by mistake and would correct but I guess not! 1 hour and 15 minutes gap so strange.
  9. Bowie tribute have indeed pulled out not moved slots, had that confirmed now.
  10. Victorious still have the David Bowie tribute up on Sunday on Seaside stage at 6pm but Choose 90s have posted that they are now playing that slot as well as their slot earlier in the day on the same stage so looks like the Bowie tribute has either moved or been pulled. Trying to find out whats happening.
  11. Ive no idea on the above sorry. Came on to say just giving the clashfinder a once over today then it will be alright to print baring any last minute changes. Its been essentially fine for the last few weeks. But theres always the chance of some last minute changes, Laurel who were playing Castle stage on Sunday are no longer listed in that slot and its now TBA.
  12. Both Preacher and The Boys were created by same fella btw Garth Ennis. Preacher in the 90s and The Boys ran 2006-12
  13. I like the line up, it has a lot more depth than pervious years and I like the headliners but they aren't ticket shifters like stereophonics, noel, prodigy were. There's no arena selling artist headlining this year. I expect next year they will have at least one again. Expect Saturday will sell a lot with Capaldi to his fanbase.

    WWE

    True Legend passed today in Harley Race. I only caught the back end of his career and his WWF run was hardly great booking but he was a guy who could effortless wrestle in the ring. Tough as hell as well. Hope WWE do a great set of his best matches on the network for everyone to get a chance of seeing his work.
  15. Ynot is going to get the last choice next year, they're out on their own now, Live Nation, Superstruct and Broadwick will all get the picks first due to financial strength and block bookings, Ynot is going to be more the level of Bearded Theory now i'd imagine. This year was booked under the old regime. Some of the names mentioned above they haven't a hope in hell of booking. Be interesting to see the future of the festival, if they keep it low and book sensibly I think they can survive. It will be interesting actually to see how all the festivals that used to be under Global will do under their new ownerships next year. Cus the same acts wont be doing them all as they usually do. Just think this year all the Global owned ones could all use each others acts, Superstruct who have bought the bulk of the global fests will have the most power to book the acts for the mid sized fests, then Broadwick, I imagine Superstruct will try and kill off Ynot to be honest. Lets see how it goes, maybe they won't be as ruthless as Live Nation have been.
