  1. I think it was R.E.M. but i've a feeling i may have caught some of Kula Shaker on the Other after Gomez. Skunk Anansie on the Sunday was my first crowd surf!

    Reckon they all must have gone in the priority sale. If so, rude to waste everyone's time today.
  4. They went there. All about the ticket price, of course, to see if it sells - but that's any credibility to why they wanted to do these festivals when they launched blown. Here's a read on why The Kooks and The Wombats are still a thing. Imagine Scouting For Girls are down to headline in 2022. https://www.nme.com/blogs/nme-blogs/kooks-wombats-scouting-girls-stuck-around-2322607?amp#aoh=15819609571509&referrer=https%3A%2F%2Fwww.google.com&amp_tf=From %1%24s
  5. Manics + Placebo = scrapping the barrel The Kooks + Bombay Bicycle Club = scrapping the barrel Acts for this venue capacity should be, at least, of the Other Stage Glastonbury headliner size. And with, Christine and the Queens last year, even that proved to not be enough.
  6. Wouldn't surprise me if they are struggling to book headliners. Bookers of arena size bands/artists on the up may be dubious, have reputations to think of: "Didn't you give away loads of tickets for free last year? Sound issues for The Strokes sell out? Sure you know what you're doing?" The Kooks, though, no chance.
  7. The Avalanches are in Ireland for Forbidden Fruit May 31, so hopefully they can join the Kraftwerk date or whatever is on the 30th.
  8. No surprise to see Young Fathers on a Massive Attack bill, but great to see them back this summer. So good live now.
  9. Very random. If you're going to take time off work, preferred the look of the LCD Friday '18 and Chems Friday '19, got to say.

    Other Stage 2020

    Panic at the Disco, Jake Bugg, Boy Better Know.
  11. Lovely. I was there earlier this month for a couple of hours. Set off on a similar route in to the site as you. Didn't see one person walking around, until i found a family playing on the Kidz Field castle. Was great to seen it in this form. Here's The Piano Bar...
  12. On a Pyramid stage topic, liked the metal pathway down the field being introduced, for accessibility. Imagine it didn't stay clear for headline sets though.

    Flops 2019

    The Streets headlined Sunday John Peel in 2011. The tent wasn't full then (but they were up against Beyonce). Clearly a lot of the younger festival generation, with the rise of grime etc, have got in to them for their comeback in the last year.
