  1. 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
  2. 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.
  3. 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.
  4. The Avalanches are in Ireland for Forbidden Fruit May 31, so hopefully they can join the Kraftwerk date or whatever is on the 30th.
  5. No surprise to see Young Fathers on a Massive Attack bill, but great to see them back this summer. So good live now.
  6. 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.
  8. 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...
  9. 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.
  11. Where I was working (best not to say where) a group of 10 or so got over the fence on Friday morning. Security showed me the rope they'd used.

    Sounds like a B2B set.
  13. Sean Keaveney sheltering from the heat in The Park, and Tom Watson in William's Green.

    Out of office

    On! 12 days off. Most in a field.
  15. Radiohead involvement here... Park Saturday
  16. Is correct. 2011 was tough. Rained most of Friday, Wu Tang.... U2. Then the mud was like glue on Saturday... Chems on Other. Was hot again Sunday so could sit down on the baking mud...(Paul Simon).
  17. No social media posts concerning The Strokes since last night, from APE. Sound issues at the front did spoil it, but was better at the back. Shame as was a great day up until then.
  18. Weezer. Doves. Shame. Orbital. Teenage Fanclub. Great lineup though, as always.
  19. Liverpool would be good this time. Imagine it's likely Doves will be there, post London show on the 29th.
