  1. A friend spoke to The Delines after their Newcastle gig and they said they hoped to play again. I'm going to see Big Joanie in Glasgow tomorrow and i know Simon has been bigging them up so hope they will be added.
  2. Not a whole lot of "wow" acts for me but a lot of strength in depth, also my 3 fav acts last year were ones i either didn't know or wasn't as fussed about when they were announced at the time. Probably about another 25/30 acts to be announced and already a few new discoveries via the playlist. Trying to work out who will play where is a mystery though. There definitely seems to be acts on the bill who are bigger than the "headliners". In years gone by the Gene Clark No Other Band and Bill Callahan were both announced as headliners before being moved to the more suitable Garden Stage. Wonder if similar will happen with Beirut with maybe Courtney Barnett stepping up? I always felt Michael Kiwanuka was a bit "radio 2" and dismissed him but his last album was recommended to me and i loved it and the show in Glasgow on that tour was fantastic. He'll go down a storm at EOTR i think and will surprise a lot of people.
  3. First announcement next Thursday. 31st of Jan.
  4. Jonathan Wilson did a late night Tipi set last time he played (the Bella Union year). I wouldn’t be surprised if Ezra did a late night Sunday one. hoping for The Orielles or Japanese Breakfast as I’ll be missing their main sets. Adrienne Lenker Of Big Thief has some solo stuff on the go so she might do a Piano stage set at some point.
  5. Mdou Moctar and Kaitlyn Aurelia Smith out and Shopping, Hater, Daniel Blumberg and Amyl and The Sniffers in. The Orielles have been move up the bill to replace KAS and now look like clashing with Big Thief unfortunately.
  6. the Stealing Sheep Suffragette Tribute is on the website but not on the day splits. As it seems to be a march/procession type thing i wonder when that will be.
  7. Interesting tweet earlier.
  8. Destroyer v Hookworms the biggie for me. That’s a sickener. May end up being weather dependent!
  9. As much i love Destroyer i doubt he will be headlining any stage. I travelled from Glasgow to the Cluny2 in newcastle to see him on his last tour in December and there were less than 100 people there. I think Hookworms will do the late-ish Big Top slot once the Woods headliner has finished (same slot as POND last year). Tweedy and Cale as Garden Stage headliners seem a good fit (might even be one still to be announced)
  10. If i remember correctly Hookworms were supposed to play a late night tip secret set but there was an issue with the volume that is allowed after midnight and they were too loud and weren't able to go ahead with it.
  11. Yeah. Aldous Harding and Julie Byrne played both last year as well.
  12. I was thinking about that earlier, something like First Aid Kit, Yeah Yeah Yeahs and St Vincent. I agree i could definitely see them making a statement like that at some point, would definitely generate a lot of positive publicity, i do however think they have always been very female friendly in terms of the acts they book and probably don't need something like that.
  13. If they carry on with the Thursday night headliner after The Shins and Slowdive i could see that being suitable for Ezra. If not then probably subbing the main stage on another night is the most likely. I'm still clinging to the hope that The Decemberists have held back their european tour dates to wait on the EOTR announcement! Other than that i think First Aid Kit have a good chance of headlining, Death Cab have a new album coming out but maybe not quite headliner material now? Nick Cave or Beck would be amazing but can't see either somehow. Further down the bill the likes of Big Thief, Jay Som, Japanese Breakfast, Sandy Alex G, Phoebe Bridgers, Soccer Mommy, Withered Hand, Moon Duo, Lucy Dacus, Kelley Stoltz, This Is the Kit, Destroyer, Weather Station, Curtis Harding are all distinct possibilities and i would be delighted with more than a handful of those announced. Deerhunter would be a great Garden Stage headliner
  14. Why would Big Thief be long shots? Is there a clash on somewhere? Was really hoping they would be on the bill somewhere.
  15. New album by The Decemberists announced today as well. Touring North America from March until June. UK and European dates to follow. *prays*
